Removal Company for Global Relocations
Welcome to Matthew James Global Relocation – Branches in the UK and Spain. Global partner network servicing over 25,000 destinations in 300 countries.
Whether you are moving to Spain with a whole house or just a few precious things, whether they are going across the street or around the world, we’ll take the same care, door to door.
If you are not used to moving house & relocation, and most people are not, the whole thing can seem a bit baffling. There is so much to do and never enough time in which to do it. That’s where we come in!
At Matthew James it’s our job to do the thinking for you. We’ll use our 3 generations of experience to help you plan your move, we offer all the services you may require including packing and labelling, we move everything to your new home, and can even help you to unpack and re-assemble everything at the other end. It’s moving the traditional way – the way it should be done.
Moving home is not only about transport, it’s about people!
Matthew James is a family business that prides itself on providing excellent service for its customers.
Of course when you first consider moving your home in the UK, to Europe or to another continent, your first consideration may be cost, but that’s just part of it. When you move home you do more than just move location, you change your life completely. Even if you only move to the next town, you have new friends, schools, jobs and opportunities. It’s an important decision and an emotional experience.
There is the potential for lots to go wrong; it’s our job to make sure nothing does. Right from the start we’ll use our experience to guide you, advise you, and help to make the hard decisions easy.

At Matthew James Removals we believe in supporting and promoting our staff to become the best they possibly can be. Jack Brown joined our company in 2014 as a porter and van driver. It quickly became clear that Jack had just the right personality traits to become a truly dedicated Matthew James removal man and had a great deal more to offer than just van driving (although he was very good at that). In 2015 we invested in Jack’s future and funded his category C driving licence. That’s a licence to drive a rigid lorry of unlimited size, for those that were wondering. Jack passed his category C licence on the first attempt and has since proven to be a natural-born lorry driver, travelling the length and breadth of the UK as well as several European countries.
BS 8564, the Overseas Moving quality standard, is closely related to BS EN 12522, the original “domestic removals” standard and also shares some elements with BS8522 (commercial moving) and BS EN 14873, the “storage standard”.
