Apologises for putting this message probably in the wrong topic area, but can anyone recommend a good removal company to take back boxes of personal belongings from Lourinha (silver costa) area to Peterborough area (Lincolnshire)?

When we moved here we used Transportugal but now going back it seems that we are being quoted for "more extras" for practically the same service as before.

Thanks
Marilia

Yes I'm aware that since I'm bringing back just personal belongings and no furniture that it will be a problem to get a reasonable quote - from my experience transporting furniture and any white goods, is really expensive, and so from a cost point of view it's really not worth bringing them back, but then leaving them here brings the added problem of things smelling of mould when one comes back from holidays! oh the joys of owning a place in Portugal. If only I could sell it all but unfortunately there really isn't a second hand market where you can sell your good quality furniture here.

OLX from my experience is a complete waste of time, I've been able to sell a lot of stuff in ebay compared to OLX - the Portuguese market are too proud to buy secondhand goods, and the joke of it is that they expect to sell stuff at their original price! They don't have any concept about selling at secondhand prices and refuse to bring the price down. Maybe other people have had a positive experience from OLX but sadly I haven't.
