State-of-the-art Road Trains

Our dedicated fleet of removals vehicles travel regularly to destinations across Europe. Security is Schepens main priority. Our road trains offer the best environment for shipping your goods – using air ride suspension and an adjustable bearing system to guarantee minimum movement, and maximum safety.

Our representatives can help with all aspects of moving within Europe and further afield – including advice on:

A full range of packing services – including complete export packing. Packing for a European move is a specialist skill and Schepens have experienced and professionally trained staff to provide this service for you. Our packing material uses a bespoke 200 grade board, which offers a far stronger box than used by other removals companies. Our boxes are also very durable and will keep all your possessions safe during transit.

Customs formalities, import regulations and import duty – to or from any destination – are no longer applicable on EU counties, but countries such as Switzerland still require “T Forms”.

Arranging comprehensive marine cargo insurance – covering against all risks.

Your household and personal effects are transported throughout Europe via road on air-suspended road train wagons which should ensure safe transportation. However, for peace of mind, we can organise protection against damage to your household and personal effects on all European removals.

Due to the large volumes we transport across Europe, we offer an economical “part-load” service to tie up delivery dates in conjunction with other Schepens International customers. These will be agreed in advance of your departure to your destination. When trunking to our Spanish bases, we will agree delivery dates with you in advance.

We have a fleet of dedicated solid-sided, articulated vehicles, specially equipped for the removals industry. They are fitted with a four bar locking system and alarms for added security and are sealed before they leave the UK. This enables us to cross check the seal number before decanting the contents into one of our Spanish depots. Our vehicles run on air ride suspension ensuring little or no movement of the vehicle contents.

We have extensive experience with transporting pianos across Europe. Due to huge financial and sentimental value, we remove stress by using specialist movers and equipment to ensure safe passage.


Our bases in Jönköping, AlmeriaAlicante and Malaga are ideally situated for forwarding consignments to the Spanish coastal regions, Portugal and Gibraltar.

Having bases in these areas enable us to generate return loads to France and the UK and offer more economical rates to our customers. Our bases in Almeria, Alicante and Malaga depots offer a packing, collection and storage service in Spain and also can be on hand to check access difficulties, survey moves and provide tranship services/ vehicles if required.
