Strengthening of the Sterling Pound against the Euro

If you have been looking to buy a place in Spain/France/Portugual why wait any longer? The Sterling pound to Euro exchange rate is at a 7 year high. This could mean cheaper buying and removal costs for all those looking to move abroad in Europe. The Sterling exchange rate was at all time high in October 2000 but since then dipped dramatically making purchases abroad expensive for us Brits.

It has since, slowly made a recovery and now working in the holiday makers and expats favour, although we can never predict how long for. The main factor affecting the weakness of the Euro is the uncertainty around the Greece bailout but this isn’t stopping the Britons. 48% more Britons are now searching abroad in Spain and France than they were a year ago when the Euro was slightly stronger.

So if you are considering a move to Europe do not hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have. We would be glad to help and offer any advice we can.

Spain Legislation Changes

Spain Legislation Changes 

Physical restriction and recent changes to legislation restricting the movement of large vehicles in Madrid has caused considerable problems for removal companies relocation clients to and from the city centre.

Large fines for the vehicle operator combined with excessive costs for storage & redelivery and shuttle vans from local agents are causing increased costs for clients along with unnecessary stress and complications.

To overcome these problems our quotes now include a transhipment service for all deliveries & collections within the Comunidad de Madrid / area 28 using 3.5 ton vans as pictured.

Please check when comparing our quotation as the majority of European quotations assume good access and parking for a large goods vehicle and if this is not the case then the client may well incur additional charges for transhipments, redeliveries & storage.

If you have any queries or we can offer any help or advice please do not hesitate to contact our team at info@stgeorgestransport.com

New Spain Removal Vehicles

 Removals to Spain

New additions to the fleet!

To further increase the reliability of our UK Spain Removals service we have invested in new vehicles - meaning we can be even more reliable, on time, up to date, keeping environmentally friendly standards high, and keep our employees safe.

These new vehicles are the highest standard of trucks around and are Euro 6 compliant DAF XF trucks. They have a high specification and have the lowest emission output. The trailers used on these tractor units are mainly step frame hard sided trailers but we can change these trailers to suit our customers needs, including curtain siders or car transportation if needed.

They will be traveling to and from Spain weekly with drop off and collections in France and Portugal. We hope to upgrade more of our fleet in the very near future so that we can make our Spain removals even more efficient and cost friendly. Please do keep an eye out for our new vehicles!

Please drop us an email on info@stgeorgestransport.com if you have any questions about our service!

Spain Removals Advice

 Removals to Spain

The thought of moving abroad can be daunting. It is a life changing event for which you should always seek advice before jumping straight in! 
We can't advise on properties or areas, but if your concerns relate to removals to Spain, then most certainly we can help. St Georges European are here to help your move go as smoothly as possible and we will always be on hand to give advice and guidance.

Some tips include:

Really think about what you want to take. Is it cheaper to buy it at your destination? Is it something you need all the time? If so, keep it with you and don't pack it! 

Make sure the removal company can reach you on a mobile phone at both the collection address and the delivery address. Communication is paramount!

It's essential that you tell the removal company exactly what the access is like at your property. If they know what the access is like, they can arrange the perfect size vehicle before leaving their warehouse. 

Be realistic about timings. The removal company aren't going to collect your belongings on Monday and deliver it across Europe by Wednesday! It can take on average 10 days for your belongings to get from the UK to Spain or vice versa, so make sure you won't need those belongings for that period of time. 

The timings of your flight are important. Or if you aren't going to be at the property when your goods arrive please make sure someone will be there to let the removal staff in. We can offer storage if you don't need your belongings for some time and often storage offers are included in your quotation. 

Our company can give you advice each step of the way so please do involve us in your move! We have been moving people across Europe for many years and have hands on experience. We can even transport single items, small and large, from single suitcases to boats and cars! Pets can be shipped overseas but this a specialist area, and we can recommend professionals to handle this for you.

The points above are just some of the many aspects that you need to consider when attempting a Spain removal. So if you have questions.....and you need answers....then we're here to assist!

Just email us at info@stgeorgestransport.com, or call us on UK: +44 (0)1322 383233 or Spain: +34 952 485 984. You will always get the advice that's right for you from St Georges European.

Moving to Spain?

Moving to Spain

Our European Removals depot in Northfleet Kent has been analysing the locations that people have been relocating to in Europe. 

The most popular destination still seems to be Southern Spain, but there is growing interest in Southern France. Though in Summer 2014 we did see an increase in moves to the Balearic Islands, and also Belgium and Germany. 
So why are people choosing these countries to live? In the case of moving to Spain it's very clear. Spain has the sunshine, along with a lively atmosphere and great food and culture. 

Popular destinations among Brit expats are Fuengirola in Malaga, along with Marbella, San Pedro, and Alicante. Though we often carry out commercial removals to Barcelona and Madrid where offices tend to have a Branch in the business districts.
All these destinations have different atmospheres, so before deciding on a place to live make sure you visit as many locations as possible to get a feel for the areas. 
But make sure you visit at different times of the day! What may seem a tranquil idyllic retreat in the daytime can turn into a non-stop party environment in the night! As with all matters connected with a relocation to Spain, do your research, get recommendations, and practice due diligence.

As for the logistical process relating to UK Spain Removals, St Georges European have the experience, infrastructure, and expertise to guarantee you total peace of mind! Remember that there's no need to worry or get stressed about Spain removals.....because we can handle this aspect totally!
