Portugal. What images does that conjure up for you? If they are of long days of brilliant sunshine, fantastic sandy beaches, yacht-packed marinas and a sea flecked with white sails, you’re spot-on.
We’re talking about moving to the Algarve, which with its superb Mediterranean climate is a popular destination – not only for British tourists but for home-buyers, too.
If you’re going to live in Portugal, or returning from Portugal to the UK, Movecorp can make your move as hassle-free as possible. Moving is a stressful time for anyone but we have a number of solutions to make the removal process very simple.
We’re a UK-based specialist international and European removal company dedicated to offering our clients a first-class service at an affordable price. We are confident we can beat any like for like quote from any professional moving company.
Our knowledgeable move managers are on hand to help and advise at every step along the way. We can also give you total peace of mind as we are a proud member of BAR, the British Association of Removers.
We operate under the BAR Code of Practice – the only one in the moving industry approved and monitored by the Office of Fair Trading. There’s a 150% cashback guarantee in the event of a cancellation on our part and a free conciliation service if anything does go wrong. And the code requires BAR companies to deal with you in a courteous and sympathetic way at all times.
From our head office in the West Midlands we offer weekly road services to and from all main European destinations and also part-load and full containers to all international shipping destinations.
Our turnover has grown to £3.4m last year, which shows we have a large and increasing number of very satisfied customers. Movecorp has a staff of more than 40 and 16 removal vehicles, some of them huge articulated road trains, as we call them.
Last year we moved many thousand’s of customers internationally and in the UK.
Packing and unpacking? We’ve got that covered, too.
Our crews are fully trained in packing and wrapping of furniture and other goods and we use only the highest quality boxes and materials to ensure a totally professional service.

With around 3,000 sunshine hours a year, the Algarve is one of the sunniest places on the continent, even more so than California, with temperatures reaching 28C in high summer.
But that’s by no means all the once-great sea power nation has to offer. Its education attainment level is on a par with the UK, USA, France and Germany. It has one of the highest fish consumption rates in the world – and there’s nothing more healthy than that.
There’s a slower pace of life than in the UK and the Portuguese people are known for their friendliness towards Brits. For those who can’t live without the taste of UK-specific groceries, they can order online from British supermarket chains which deliver to an Algarve depot for collection.
Lisbon, Portugal’s historic capital, has one of the biggest aquariums in Europe. And northern Porto, famed for its port wine, is a World Heritage Site, once an outpost of the Roman Empire.
