Matthew James provide a superior removal service to or from the Balearic Islands, including Menorca, Majorca and Ibiza!
Matthew James services to Menorca range from dedicated removals to shared-loads or even single items.
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.

Quieter than neighbouring Ibiza and much less populated than bigger Mallorca, Menorca has a rhythm all of its own. The laid-back lifestyle, pristine natural beauty and impeccable climate have made Menorca something of a Spanish secret when compared to its Balearic sister islands. Moving to Menorca allows expats a unique opportunity to make the most of life in this unspoilt Mediterranean sanctuary.

Menorcans speak with a very similar Catalan dialect to the rest of the Balearic Islands but it has developed a unique identity of its very own. Nowhere is this more evident than in its distinctive landscape. From the bustling ancient city of Ciutadella in the west to the Anglo-Spanish styled capital of Maó-Mahón in the east, Menorca’s rich and vibrant culture oozes with charm and beauty. With over 200 km of rugged coastline, Menorca can also boast some of the most stunning beaches in the Mediterranean. Inland Menorca is equally picturesque; its rustic beauty is characterized by undulating hills, verdant farmland and whitewashed villages.
Although the price of property has steadily increased over the past few years, prices remain between 15% to 20% cheaper than in neighbouring Mallorca. The majority of British expats buying property in Menorca are looking for second homes and tend to not spend all of their year on the island. The seasonality of Menorca, and the rest of the Balearic’s, does affect flights and business but it also helps to maintain Menorca’s peaceful charm. Expats moving to Menorca can expect to take advantage of the islands beauty and culture all year round.
Flights from most major European cities are regular and can be relatively cheap if booked well in advance. Flight time from London to Menorca airport is a little over two hours and a further 10-minute drive to the island’s capital of Maó-Mahón. Like most of the Mediterranean islands, Menorca is seasonal so flights, prices and general activity varies with the summer and winter seasons. Spain’s official airline database has reported a gradual year-on-year increase in visitor numbers to Menorca Airport of about 10%. This, when compared with Mallorca’s annual tourist traffic, is small change and indicative of a healthy yet controlled tourist industry.
Expats moving to Menorca – and Spain in general – need to acquire an NIE (Numero de Identificacion Extranjero) in order to set their new lives up. The NIE is needed to open a bank account, buy a car, set up a phone line and complete other administrative necessities.
