We shipped a 40 ft. container the end of 2019 that arrived Jan. 2020 in the Algarve. What would you like to know. I am happy to help

Hi Peggy,

I am a newbie to Expats Portugal and would very much appreciate this information in a private message as well, as we are considering shipping.

Many thanks in advance!!!

WE are moving to Portugal next year.  Would you be able to give advice on shipping from US to Portugal?   Who to use and who not to use.  Most probably a 20 foot container.

 

Thank You

Hi Karen, Welcome to the expat site. I am happy to share my experience with you and maybe a few hints. It's a lot of information, the latest reviews on international movers, a comparison spreadsheet, a pre-move worksheet that I came up with and some other helpful information. It might be easier if you sent me your email address.

I will send you a private message with my email so you don't have to put your email on the forum.

I, too, have just come across your post and I will be moving in November 2021. I need to arrange shipping of small amount of household items, mainly wall hangings, decor, that sort of thing.  Please will you send me the information you kindly forwarded the others as soon as possible?  Thank you in advance.

@goldendoodle when are you leaving because I am going to PT on a scouting trip and some friends who have lived in the Algarve for 16 years are taking me to a removal company for a meeting.  I will be there beginning of October.  I can let you know about them when I return to the US.

@hhomept, Hi, thanks for replying.  I have learned this afternoon that peggyl is no longer a member here. Hence no replies from her, I guess. 😀  You can likely contact me via FB messenger, if you are in any of the other Expat Portuguese groups too.

Hi Susan & Leif

Peggyl is no longer a member or active on this site. However if anyone wants to get a quotation for removals, we recommend Global International Relocation based in Lisbon. This company operates through a network of global removal partners. We chose them because they are based in Portugal with the right connections globally. In our view, this is important because the difficult part is the import (not the export) and it is vital to use a company with a full understanding of the import procedures, Customs requirements, handling and delivery in Portugal.

You can see more via this link: Global Mobility Group - Empresa de Mudanças Internacionais and we have a discount available to Premium Members.

If you wish to claim the discount, please use this link: Member Benefits | Expats Portugal

We shipped from Kentucky. I cannot tell you who we used in the open record of the forum. I sent you a private message.
