Moving to Malaga? We offer weekly services to Spain from the UK! From full relocations to single items; dedicated or shared-load services.
Let Matthew James take the stress out of your move…
EUROPEAN SHARED LOAD
A part/shared load service is a cost effective way to move your goods to and from your destination. The reason this service is so cost effective is that you share the vehicle with other consignments and therefore the vehicle costs are also shared. All consignments are individually prepared, numbered, labelled and inventoried to ensure all items are correctly delivered to you. The main advantage of a part load service is that you will receive the Matthew James service of excellence at the most cost effective price.
EUROPEAN PREMIUM SERVICE
A direct service combines Matthew James’ service of excellence with the added advantage of a dedicated collection date and express delivery timescale. Handling of your effects is minimised as they remain on the same vehicle throughout. Although your delivery will be carried out in conjunction with other clients’ consignments, this means you will share the cost of the vehicle and your consignment will be prioritised for onward delivery typically within 7-10 days of collection.
EUROPEAN DEDICATED SERVICE
A dedicated service gives you the flexibility to choose your collection and delivery dates. This service means you will have exclusive use of one of our bespoke removal vehicles. This service guarantees the Matthew James service of excellence and peace of mind that your moving dates can be fixed, allowing you the convenience to make travel arrangements and plan your arrival. All delivery dates are subject to EU laws on driving time. We can confirm the timing prior to any booking.

It is also the 6th most populous city in Spain and has established itself as the coast’s commercial and cultural hub and is on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its high-rise hotels and beautiful sandy beaches.

Property prices have remained stable in Malaga avoiding large reductions seen elsewhere in the country. When looking to rent or purchase it may be advisable to do so outside of the busy summer months when prices can rise due to demand. British expats also buy and rent property in the surrounding Malaga province where property can be picked up cheaper and village life allows a quieter lifestyle with the option of popping in to town for the huge selection of museums, art galleries, great bars and restaurants on offer.
There are plenty of Schools to choose from in Malaga. Some of these are based on the British System but they are not regulated by OFSTED. They are regulated by the Junta de Andalucía Consejería de Educación (Junta de Andalucía Education Department). If you would rather send your children to one of the state Schools in Malaga than a private or international school, it would be worth looking at the Junta de Andalucía’s website. http://www.juntadeandalucia.es/educacion/vscripts/centros/ This website provides a concise list of state schools in Malaga and all provinces of Andalucía and although in Spanish it is easy to navigate.
