Moving to Marbella? We offer weekly services to the Costa Del
Sol 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.

Located on the Costa del Sol, everything in Marbella is designed for only the best. Another glorious destination for the wealthy and famous, the city has everything one could want when looking to relocate. Marbella actually means ‘beautiful sea’ so you can imagine what the main draw is to the city.
Jobs in the city, like any other place on the Costa del Sol, are geared towards the catering and tourism industry. Even if you only speak English, there is a high chance that you will be able to find a job due to the high level of British and Dutch expats calling the place home. Of course, it is recommended that you have some knowledge of Spanish to give you an edge when job hunting. The INEM office should be your first port of call when looking for work. Due to the city being a tourist destination reliant on the seasons, it is easier to find work in the summer months, when the service industry requires more staff.

Driving might be the most attractive option, as there isn’t a local train service running into and out of the city. The nearest airport is the Costa del Sol airport of Malaga and Gibraltar International Airport which are both less than an hour away.
