Removal Spain to UK – the Inventory
When you decided to move abroad, you hopefully went through a bit of a de-clutter. Well, the process is equally important when you decide to book a removal from Spain to the UK in too. It is much too easy to buy things and then never use them. Your removal from Spain to the UK will cost less if you can move only essential items. Therefore, it’s a good idea to sort through and think about what to move, rather than just packing up everything you have. The actual de-cluttering process can be quite liberating and can make you look at everything you own in a new light.
Questions to ask yourself about each item can include:
- Have I used this in the last 3 years?
- If the answer is no, should the item be kept and moved to the new home?
- Is it kept for sentimental reasons that still apply?
- Is it old so can I bin it or give it away to charity & buy a new one back in the UK?
After that, it is then the time to contact us, so that we can survey the removal, list all the items to go, and work out the volume to give you the quote. The price will be worked out from the volume and weight of the goods to move based on the inventory, and how far apart the collection and delivery points are.
If you don’t want to source packaging online, we can supply boxes, bubble wrap and packing tape for your smaller items, so that you can pack your own belongings.
If we carry out your removal to the UK from Spain, you get all packing materials for your move free – including tape and a tape gun to save you time! For hints and pro tips on packing read our useful blogpost here
Alternatively, we can offer a full pack service, and will, therefore, do all the packing for you, which is a more convenient and faster solution for you. Whilst a more expensive option, this will take away all the stress that packing normally involves. You just sit back and relax – we’ll do it all for you.
We will visit your house and carefully pack away the contents of every room into sturdy boxes, using bubble wrap and wrapping paper for delicate or fragile items. We also make sure that each box is marked so that we know where to put it in the new house.
For larger items, we use a special bubble blanket supplied just for protecting furniture during long moves. We also have special quilted sofa covers and padded TV covers, like the one above, to make sure everything stays in tip-top condition.
When we come to load the truck, mattresses are put into plastic bags, and we protect everything using transit blankets and large quilted removal pads, to ensure nothing gets damaged.
