For many people, Spain is a very attractive destination to relocate with its temperate climate and rich culture. The thought of getting all your belongings over there should keep your sunny disposition up.
Regardless of whether you’re heading to the Costa Del Sol for year round sun, or to the bustling cities of Barcelona and Madrid, MoveHub can assist you in finding the right shipping company to get your possessions to Spain safely.
Given the close proximity to other European countries, there are three options available for shipping to Spain – overland, air and by sea. Naturally, the quickest mode is to send items via air freight, but this is also the most expensive option.
In contrast shipping items by sea is the cheapest option, depending on the volume you’re shipping and where it’s coming from.
If you’re going to be living outside of Spain’s two largest cities, then fear not as international shipping includes overland door-to-door delivery as standard.
With a move to Spain you can currently benefit from the EU freedom of movements of goods for personal items. However to make sure you don’t breach any Spanish border guidelines, it’s a good idea to check the Spanish Government Border Protection website for the most up to date list of items.
