Furniture Removals to Portugal

Portugal is one of the most exciting and interesting countries in the world.  It has a rich culture, beautiful natural environment and incredible food.  For these reasons, Portugal attracts thousands of migrants each year, particularly from the UK.

If you are moving to Portugal this year, you may be concerned about the logistics of moving furniture over long distances.  Why not let Schepens handle it for you!  We are a family owned removals company that has been performing furniture removals to Portugal for decades.  Our talented team has helped hundreds of clients move to this beautiful country and we look forward to helping you.

This blog post will take a look at the Schepens process for European removals to Portugal and how we prepare furniture for the journey.  Then, we’ll explain why Schepens is the best choice for furniture removals to Portugal.

THE SCHEPENS FURNITURE REMOVALS PROCESS

Schepens employs furniture movers to Portugal who are highly skilled at preparing for all European removals.  They are trained to British Association of Removers standards, which gives you the certainty that your furniture will be correctly packaged and loaded for the move to Portugal. Our process for furniture removals to Portugal includes the following steps.

INITIAL CLIENT CONTACT AND QUOTATION

The cost of a removal to Portugal is based on many different factors including the size and weight of the cargo that you have to transport, and the services that you require.  One of our move coordinators will gather some details from you to determine the cost of the move.  Some of the questions they may ask include:

  • How many items do you have to move?
  • How easy is access to your current property and your destination?
  • Do you require additional services (additional storage or use of our packing service)?
  • Do you have any unusual items they you need to move?
  • Would you like a dedicated container or a shared container?

They may also ask for measurements of some pieces of furniture in your home.  All consultations are 100% free and 100% obligation-free.  If you only have a small amount of cargo to move, you may not require an in-depth consultation.  If this is the case, you can receive a quote over the phone or via our online contact form.

A move consultant will then create a detailed quote which lists the cargo to be moved, the services you require and the total cost.  The cost represents the figure for a door-to-door move — there are no hidden extras!  The quote will include the pickup date and estimated delivery window.

OUR PROFESSIONAL PACKING SERVICES

One of the most useful services that we offer clients is our professional packing service.  When you purchase this service, our skilled removers will pack all of your possessions for you.  We will supply the packing materials necessary for safely moving the contents of your home including tape, boxes, bubble wrap, cardboard, packing paper, and moving blankets.

This service not only saves you time, it also ensures your items are appropriately packed for the journey to Portugal.  Our experienced removers understand the stresses placed on cargo moved from the UK to Portugal and will pack your items correctly.

OUR FURNITURE PACKING PROCESS

Schepens packs items in accordance with the standards set out by the British Association of Removers.  High quality packing materials are used to ensure your cargo is safely moved to Portugal.

The high-quality packing materials we use include 200 grade cardboard boxes.  These boxes will ensure your fragile items make it to Portugal in once piece.  We follow rigorous packing procedures for glassware, china, plates, bottles of wine and other fragile items.  Some of the steps that we take to ensure your furniture makes it safely to Portugalinclude:

  • We apply layers of packing paper and bubble wrap or plastic wrap to all fragile furniture
  • Plastic wrap is applied to timber to protect it from scratches
  • All mirrors and glass pieces are wrapped with bubble wrap and plastic
  • We disassemble furniture when it improves the safety or efficiency of the removal
