Moving to Gibraltar? We have regular removals vehicles servicing all of your Gibraltarian relocation needs.
From full relocations to shared loads, baggage and even single items; let Matthew James take the stress out of your removal.
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.
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.
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.

Gibraltar has been a British Overseas Territory for over 300 hundred years and still maintains many British systems and customs to this day. Its official language is English but Spanish is also widely spoken and will be useful to know given Gibraltar’s connections and proximity to Spain. Gibraltar is only a two and a half hour flight from the UK and also boasts excellent transport connections to the rest of Europe via bus, train, boat and plane. Gibraltar International Airport has daily flights to and from the UK whilst the bigger Malaga airport is also less than a two hour drive away. It is Gibraltar’s strong links to the British way of life combined with its Mediterranean location and subtropical climate that make it such an attractive place for relocation.
Tourism is a major source of income for ‘The Rock’, though it also has thriving banking, financial services and online gaming industries. Like so many other areas, Gibraltar’s employment system is almost identical to the UK’s. All contracts are in English and – unlike most other European destinations – bilingualism is not a prerequisite for employment, which opens up many job opportunities if you only speak English. The UK influences also extend to Gibraltar’s healthcare and education systems, which are both modelled on their British counterparts and are held to the same high standards.
Gibraltar is popular with both tourists and expats for its low taxation. Gibraltar has no capital gains tax, wealth tax, gift tax or inheritance tax, as well as low income and corporation tax. There is also no VAT charged in Gibraltar, which is great for shoppers and contributes significantly to a cheaper cost of living than in the UK. The cost of buying and renting property in Gibraltar can be on the steep side when compared with nearby Spain simply because of the limited availability of land. However, higher salaries, more job opportunities, fewer taxes and over 300 days of sunshine a year still make Gibraltar an ideal place to relocate to.
