Would appreciate any information with regard to cost of moving house contents from UK  to Albox area.   I am aware it varies on amount you move but if anyone has any experience of costs.  For example   5 bedroom house from Midlands to Albox area.  What a 30' container costs generally how much of a house would that move.

Many thanks

We used Location, Location absolutely brilliant. Our contact was Katrina and so helpful. They ship in containers which are exclusively your own. Katrina was flexible asto how many we may need ie provided 3 but if  only needed 2 then charged for 2. We weren’t ready to take delivery and they held at depot in Antas until we were. They are a family owned company that have been trading for years. My mum has used them a few times and always been very accommodating.

Hi Pamela,

How much did it cost for the 2 containers? I am moving out to Oria in June/July and I am on a tight budget so need to factor in the removals cost.

Hi Everyone, I believe that Patsy123 and I have both asked about the COST of moving our household goods to Spain. It's all well and good having recommendations for who to use but can someone PLEASE just give us a rough idea as to the actual cost?

I am buying a plot of land and having a property built. This is expensive enough and I am running on a tight budget so I need rough figures to plan for the move. It's no good me ploughing all my money into the house only to find that I have to leave everything behind because I haven't allowed enough to pay the removals company.

Thank you john99andrew but that doesn't answer my question! Can ANYONE give a straight answer to a straight question? I just need a rough figure ie. is it €2.000, €3.000 or €5.000? I have a 2 bed house and a workshop full of tools. One 20ft container or a 7.5 ton lorry should suffice. Surely someone actually paid for their stuff to be transported???
