With Indalo Transport handling your removals, moving to Spain will become an adventure, not a leap into the unknown.

Relocating to another country unlocks so much in life that you may never ordinarily experience in the UK. Traditionally, the Costas have been the destinations of choice for the typical British expat. However, Spain offers a huge variety of towns and cities. For the adventurous expat there are a vast array of beautiful, historical and interesting places to discover.

Fiestas

The Spanish, on the whole, are a very social and family orientated people. They love sport, they love food and they love a party! Most Spanish cities have their own traditions, fiestas and festivals. There always seems to be something going on.

Spain has over 300 days of sunshine every year in the south of the country. It also has some of the most affordable and delicious food anywhere in the world, making Spain a fantastic place to live.

Top 3 things to consider when you’re ready for your removal UK to Spain

Below you’ll find Indalo Transport’s Top 3 things to consider in order to make your removal from the UK to Spain in 2021 run smoothly. That way you can start enjoying your adventure, rather than seeing it as an overwhelming challenge.

1. Inventory

She’s making a list – she may even check it twice!

Clearly it is going to cost you more to get all of your things over to Europe than it would do if you just moved within the UK.

At Indalo Transport we base our prices on the inventory of items to move. It takes into account the weight as well as the volume of an item. This inventory can be sorted out by you, or we can visit you to survey what is to be moved. Because of this, each customer’s removals cost are unique. We work out our fee from the volume and weight, so if you only have a handful of things, your removals quote will work out a lot cheaper.

We also take into consideration how far apart the collection and delivery points are, so if you’d like to move to France, it will cost less than if you wanted to move to the Southern Coast of Spain.

You need to de-clutter

Whilst it can be quite to hard get rid of things, the process of de-cluttering is actually very therapeutic. If you’re struggling to part with your possessions, here are three questions to ask yourself about each item

  • Have I used it in the last three years?
  • Is it something that’s old, outdated and easily replaced?
  • Does it hold any sentimental value at all?

If you’ve not used something for a while, it’s safe to say that you’re probably not going to use it in the future, so sell it or give it away to charity, otherwise it’ll take up precious space in your removal van.

With no sentimental value at all, but you’re still not sure about whether to take it with you or not, have a look on eBay at what you could sell it for. The results may sway you into letting it go for some extra cash, which always comes in handy when you’re moving.

Use the cloud

If you have a lot of documents, why not scan them in to your computer. Then you’ll have digital copies of them that you can print out at a later date. But you may never need to. Alternatively, there are plenty of cloud based storage options for you to utilize. Services like Google Drive, Evernote, Onedrive or Dropbox. However, don’t just start shredding things willy-nilly. Certain official documents must be kept for up to 6 years.

It’s always hard to say how long de-cluttering your house will take, so it’s always best to start as soon as possible.

So, you’ve made a dent in what you’d like to take with you. You’ve completed your inventory. You know when it is that you’re wanting to move. Now is a great time to get in touch with Indalo Transport, as you are starting to get close to your removal from the UK to Spain in 2021.

2. Packing

Many, many boxes, of all shapes and sizes.

Many, many boxes and there’s more where that came from at Indalo Transport!

The team at Indalo Transport know that packing isn’t everyone’s favourite cup of tea so we offer a full packing service. We promise that it will take away all the stresses that packing your own belongings normally involves. Whilst it is a more expensive option than if you wanted to pack yourself, it’s certainly a more convenient and faster solution for you. You can sit back and not have to worry about any of the moving process at all. You can focus on what to do when you get to your new home.

Expert packing

You could say that watching the experienced Indalo Transport removals teams at work is like watching a work of art being created. They will visit your house and carefully pack away all the contents of each room of your home into sturdy boxes, using bubble wrap and wrapping paper for delicate or fragile items.

They’ll mark up all your boxes so that they know where to put them when they arrive at their new home. For larger items, the team uses a special export grade bubble blanket that’s been especially designed for protecting furniture on long moves. We also use special quilted sofa covers and padded TV covers to make sure that these items have the maximum protection.

Mattresses are put into heavy duty plastic bags to protect them. Pictures are export wrapped in bubble blanket. When the team come to loading the truck, they doubly protect your items again, by using removal transit blankets, and american style quilted pads to really make sure that nothing gets damaged.

3. Countdown to your move

Tick tock, tick tock, almost there!

Once you’re all booked with your removals company, this is a great time to really research the new place you’re moving to. Not only will this get you excited, it’ll also give you an idea of places to visit at first.

Some things to research are how to open bank accounts and find out what’s around in your local area. If you have a pet, you will need to find out whether the country you’re moving to has any restrictions on the breed of cat or dog that you have as well. Regarding the language, it might be worth downloading some common phrases you may need. Then you can practice them for when you settle in, unless of course you already speak the language.

When it is the last month before you relocate, it’s always a good idea to inform companies, people and organisations in the UK that you’re going to be moving and to give them your forwarding address if necessary.

Days to go

In the last week before your big move to Europe, double check your inventory. If  there are any additional items you wish to take with you, inform your removals company. You’ll also need to make sure that they have received your payment.

If you have chosen to use Indalo Transport we ask that on the day of the move, you make sure all items not meant for the removals van are kept separately. We don’t want to accidentally ship those items with the rest of the removal!
