Faultless service all the way

So glad we used Shires for our move from York to Albox, Almeria, Spain. Lesley was fantastic with the required paperwork for customs and friendly and professional throughout. Dave and Danny packed up in York and Brent and Dave delivered to Spain.

Not one breakage whatsoever. Such care and attention taken with our personal possessions was so appreciated and took the stress out of such a huge move for us.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and thanks again for a fabulous service.

Just wanted to say a huge massive thank you to Shires Removal Group and your entire team. The service we have received over the past six months has been fantastic.

The two colleagues who came to help pack up our house in back in September 2021 were brilliant – they worked so hard to get everything done in the very short time frame we had. They were professional, courteous and above all super efficient. It was a pleasure dealing with Shires each month when it came to paying the storage fees.

The entire team who came earlier this month to return our belonging to us were absolutely brilliant – I can’t believe they worked so hard and got everything safe up to our flat (on the third floor) for us in such a short time. They were all very polite, courteous, helpful and as with the other team – super efficient. Shires have some excellent people working for them. We have been truly impressed with this company and the service we have received.

We can’t praise this firm enough – if you want an excellent, headache and hassle free move then make sure you engage this firm. You won’t be sorry.

Great company.

Shires moved us from UK to Portugal, with six months storage in between. Everybody was very professional and although there were new rules for moving to the EU after Brexit, which made the paperwork trickier, it all went well.

Thanks to all involved, but especially to Lesley for coping with the bureaucracy, and Sam and Brent for unloading on a very, very hot day.
