Unusual items that need specialist handling?

Have you any items that are not part of a typical home or office move?

Some items’ packing and transportation is a delicate performance that requires specialist handling.

We move unusual items for our customers such as sports cars, vintage cars, motor bikes, hot tubs, pianos, antiques and many more unusual shapes and sizes. If it’s legal, we can move it!

Your goods may be out of the ordinary, but with Shires you can expect the same professional and expert services we’ve been giving for generations. And a move from country to country, and between the UK and Europe, may have specific customs requirements. We work with you to make sure that all the boxes have been ticked for seamless relocation and transportation.


Book your UK-European and unusual move with us. Our service to you is fully insured, and quality assured.

Moving unusual items is all in a day’s work for us.


We also pack up, move, store, and relocate unusual business items, including stock, manufacturer’s goods – anything legal that is not your average move!

Shires is based at the heart of the country in the UK. We cover the whole of the UK, the continent and the rest of European territories.

Our services also reach farflung countries worldwide.

We also have extensive storage facilities if you are needing this as part of your whole move.

    Need to transport your car, or second family car, as part of your long-distance move?

    We regularly move cars, especially second family cars, as part of a long-distance relocation. These fit comfortably in either our main vans or in our trailers.

    Complex vehicle moves come in all shapes and sizes, old and new, two-wheeled, four-wheeled – even train engines have been part of our unusual moves undertaken!

    But moving your car saves on a long second journey for you, and the convenience of having your vehicle immediately available at your destination is yet another way to take the bigger stresses out of your move.

    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.
