Book your Portugal-UK move with us –

UK and Europe’s professional and dependable removals service.

Olá! Welcome to Portugal. 

If you are moving to Lisbon, Porto or the Algarve, you will be moving to the country that produced Cristiano Ronaldo. From the welcoming business environment for entrepreneurs in Lisbon to the dazzling array of traditional and new restaurants in cities like Porto and the pristine beaches of the Algarve holiday coast, Portugal offers a peaceful lifestyle where gastronomy is king and football rules alongside.

The stunningly beautiful cities in Portugal attest to this being one of the oldest countries in Europe with building dating back to the Circa 1500.  English is widely spoken and property is affordable.  Rental properties are also a good option because, in Portugal, the landlord (and not the tenant) is responsible for paying the levies and covering the costs of maintenance.  In this way, one can save on accommodation costs.  

We cannot talk about Portugal and not mention their seafood and sauces which are famous all over the world.  Much of Portugal faces the Atlantic Ocean and it boasts some of the best fishing in the world.

Capital city, Lisbon, is busy and bustling but the country is small and the cities are small compared to other European cities.  Many people choose to walk the Camino, a 100km or 25 day pilgrimage in the north, where villages are tucked into the sides of the lush, green Serra da Estrela mountain range and you can savour a gostosa (delicious) Pastel de nata (custard tart) with a good cup of coffee and warm hospitality. Beijinho!

The Portuguese climate is always warm or mild, family life is honoured and the country is welcoming new business start-ups.  With the low cost of living and high quality lifestyle, Portugal is a beautiful choice for relocation from the EU or England.  Shires EU is a comprehensive domestic and commercial moving service.

At Shires EU it is our job to move you anywhere in Portugal with ease and efficiency. 

You can leave ALL the heavy work to our premium international moving team, because it is our job to do all the moving work for you!

    ALL moves are individually planned, insured and carried out by our own certified staff and vehicles. We provide an A-Z relocation service – from packing to loading, to the storage and transport, border crossings and home or office delivery at your new destination.

    • Quote and Assessment

    Our efficient team starts with a review of all your household items. We offer country-specific advice on what is best to take and what is best to recycle in favour of purchasing in Portugal. This is just one of the ways in which we make sure your quote is never for unnecessary services.

    • Pack and Move

    Packing is a task for the experienced and best left to our professional team who have all the equipment and materials needed to wrap, pack and move your items so that no damage occurs. We want you to move to Portugal stress-free.

    • Storage

    Once you have arranged the packing, there are several reasons you why you may consider storage, either in transit, short-term or long-term, as part of your moving plan. At our high-tech, high-security storage facility we will keep your goods under 24/7 care.

    Perhaps you are moving in to a smaller house and not all your valuables or special furniture or sports equipment will fit in it – our over 1.5 million square feet storage facility is at hand. There is no need to clutter your new home with stored boxes or furniture that could get damaged. Put it in our care, all with high security, for your full peace of mind!

    • Customs

    Customs regulations and paperwork need compliance and our specialist European Removals Team will assist you with ALL the paperwork, border crossings and up-to-date information you need to complete your move successfully.

    • Delivery

    Our team will deliver in full or in part as you request, because your things are completely safe in our secure storage facility – either as self-store or in containerised storage, for as long as you need. We pride ourselves on the personal touch and when our Shires van arrives, you will see only the Shires EU friendly faces you have come to rely upon.

    Customers ask us: “How do we know our goods will be safe?”

    Your goods are safe with us because they never leave our hands, even when moving to and from Europe. With Shires EU Portugal, your goods never leave our care. For some, moving across regions can mean that their household contents are handled by external contractors; this is definitely not the case with us.

    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.
