Moving to Almeria? We offer weekly services to the Costa de Almeria 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.

Almería is Andalucia’s Easternmost Capital. This charming Spanish city is famous for the massive Alcazaba (a Moorish castle) which overlooks the city. Largely un-benefiting from the touristic boom of the 60’s and 70’s, Almería remains uniquely untouched, meaning it is a beautiful slice of traditional Spain set on the Mediterranean coast. You will struggle to find a Fish ’n’ Chip shop or Full English here.
The Province of Almería is experiencing a tourist boom, however, which is handy because this means that more English speaking jobs are on offer. Most of these are based around the retail and hospitality sectors, but as with many costal cities along the south of Spain, there are opportunities in the property market as well (but a little knowledge of Spain is required)! It does have to be said though that not having a strong grasp on the language will not hinder your employment options by too much, as many locals are able to communicate fluently in English. Also, cities like Almería are always looking for English Language teachers.
Weekly services to Almeria…
At Matthew James Removals we offer regular services to and from Almeria, throughout the year. From dedicated removals to shared-loads or even single items, we offer a service to meet your requirements. Our expertise, know-how, local knowledge and specialist vehicles make us the obvious choice for moving to Almeria.
We are proud to be BAR International Associates (British Association of Removers) and members of IAM; the world’s largest trade association for the global moving industry. Our management systems have been assessed to ISO 9001 standards.
Our storage facilities in Europe
All of our depots in the UK and Spain offer fully containerised storage facilities in modern and secure warehouses. Shared-loads are consolidated at our depots in the UK and Spain for onwards transport to Almeria and beyond.
Your consignment is automatically covered up to £50,000 for total loss in the event of unforeseen circumstances such as a fire or flood. In addition to this we can arrange a full-cover insurance policy via our brokers upon request.
It is easiest to get around on foot in the city, as many streets are closed off to cars or are simply not built to accommodate motor vehicles. There certainly is a bus service though, and whilst they run less frequently than other major Spanish cities, they will still get you from A to B without too much trouble, and there are plenty of routes to and from the coastal resorts. It is advised that you purchase/rent a car as train travel in Almería is basically non-existent, so you won’t be able to get far without four (or two) wheels. You can get a train to Madrid and Barcelona (and one to Malaga) but that is about it. The city is only 20 minutes from the nearest airport, Almería Airport.
Be carful when purchasing property that it is structurally sound. Some properties might not last too much longer than after you move in as the city, as already implied, it is not a rolling metropolis. Of course the closer you get to the harbour, the more expensive properties are going to be. There are some beautiful alternatives to the city life just up the hills like Pechina and Viator, which will provide you with peace in busy tourist month, but will still allow you to get to the beach in 15 mins. There are no international schools in the city, but there are some in the larger Almería region. Public and Private Spanish schools are still a good option, however, as the standard are high, and non-Spanish speaking students have access to free intensive Spanish lessons.
There are plenty of things to do in Almería besides spending day after day enjoying the sun and sea activities on the beach (which you will be able to get enough of). You can experience beautiful Kayaking tours through the (inactive) volcanoes of Cabo de Gata Natural Park, or go Canyoning in its many caves and cliff edges. Obviously you need to visit the Alcabaza as it is the most visited attraction in the city.
