Planning Your Removals from UK to Spain
Starting a new life in Spain is an exciting prospect, but it’s something that requires careful planning. You can’t just decide to move and hope that everything sorts itself out, particularly when it comes to transporting all your belongings from your UK home.
At Movewise Ltd, we have been helping British residents with their removals from UK to Spain for many years. We know the kinds of things you need to arrange ahead of time to ensure the move goes smoothly.
These are a few of the things you need to think about…
De-cluttering Your Home
Moving to another country provides the ideal opportunity for taking stock of your life, and what better place to start than with the various belongings you have accumulated? Now is the time to go through your possessions and be brutally honest with yourself whether you want them as part of your new life. Anything you don’t want can be passed onto friends, family, and loved ones, sold of eBay, or donated to a local charity.
Packing Up Your Belongings
You should give yourself plenty of time to pack up your belongings, as it will always take longer than you expect. Be sure to use strong, secure containers for all your possessions, wrapping delicate items in bubble wrap for the journey ahead.
Dismantling Your Furniture
If at all possible, you should consider dismantling all furniture when arranging your removals from UK to Spain. Not only will it take up less room in the shipping container (potentially saving you money) it is less likely to incur damage.
Shipping your removals from the UK to Spain will take some time. If you pay for an entire shipping container, it can take around a week. If you choose a shared (or groupage) shipping solution, it will be closer to 4-6 weeks. If you time things right, you can stay with family or friends, or book into a hotel for that period, flying over to Spain when your items are due to arrive.
If you’re going to be living in your new home while you wait for your removals from UK to Spain, you will need to think of ways to get by without furniture for a few weeks. You can buy some cheap items locally that will serve for the duration. These can always be put to use elsewhere once your belongings arrive. Alternatively, if you’re prepared to slum it, you can invest in sleeping bags and camp beds and make an adventure of things.
