Moving to Spain
International Relocation Service to Spain
If you are lucky enough to be moving to Spain, one of your first major tasks will be finding an international mover to ship your belongings overseas.
One of the unfortunate things that can happen is handing over your household goods and personal effects to an inexperienced mover that's not licensed, bonded or insured.
Fortunately, we're an international relocation service that has worked with the Spanish market for more than three decades and we understand the ins and outs of moving overseas.
Shipping and Moving Services for Household Goods
Deciding what you want to bring from home can also be a time consuming matter. However, those relocating to Spain from the USA should take a few things into consideration.
When thinking about what items to bring, consider the overall costs other than just the ocean freight such as import costs, taxes and duties, living arrangement in Spain, etc.
Most of the time, not always, the living space will be smaller so you'll need to decide if taking a giant side by side refrigerator will be feasible.
Most international movers will have a basic idea of the fees for importing your personal effects. However, you can see the specific customs requirements and qualifications for moving household goods to Spain here.
Our Overseas Shipping Options
Regardless of whether you are moving a few boxes or an entire household, our international movers can help and we offer a variety of services that fit any size move.
Our departure port locations:
Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, Savannah and New York.
Out of the five, many of our clients elect moving household goods to Spain from New York because of a quicker sail time and more competitive shipping rates.
For those of you moving from the usa to Spain, there are two different shipment options available and they include:
- a shared container service. (where you only pay for the actual volume you're moving. This is best for people who don't have a ton of items to move.)
- an exclusive or sole container service (where you load your own 20ft or 40ft container and pay a flat fee for it.)
More Moving Information
When it comes to moving to Spain, questions pertaining to how long and how much a move is going to cost will depend on a handful of factors.
If you are wondering how much it will costs to ship household goods from the USA, that will depend on the amount you want to bring, shipping insurance, and destinations/departures.
Since every single one of those factors can be different on any given move, the best way to get an estimate is to use our online quote form or call the number below.
The second most commonly question international movers get asked is how long the move will take. That too can vary, however, generally a door to door move can be anywhere from 6-8 weeks. This is an estimate and as mentioned individual times will vary.
For example; when moving to Spain from the west coast of the United States, your household goods will be on the water for 30 days. In comparison with a move from New York, which only has a sail time of 12-14 days.
