    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.

    Shires EU manages your entire move from Europe to the United Kingdom with ease

    Moving is not a decision taken lightly for families because it means settling in to new schools, adapting to a new place to live – even if you are moving back to your home country in the UK.  

    Not only is the actual relocation a major life change that can impact a family routine greatly, but the sheer scale of the planning, packing up, storing and transporting needed has to be planned first. 

    You do not need to worry because the planning, arranging, packing up, storing and moving is all done by us! We even manage your border crossings before delivering your household items cheerfully to your front door.

    There’s even time for a cuppa tea in between packing up!
