    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.
