House removal may be a stressful event for those who move internationally. Also, it may be quite time-consuming. It requires packing, estimating the volume and – what is most important – finding a reliable and cheap removal company. The good news is, that you have just found the right removal company. MyCheapRemovals offers low-cost and professional international removals from the UK to Portugal. The second good news is, that it does not have to take much time to move houses with our company. The delivery time is related to two things: the volume of your load, and the distance between the collection and delivery places.
Part load or a dedicated van?
The volume is one of the most important indicators, as far as the time of delivery is concerned. MyCheapRemovals offers either a part load, namely 5, 10 and 15m3, or a dedicated van option – 20m3 and above. Part load option means, that you will share the van with other customers, so the van will have at least one stop during the journey – to load or unload other customers’ belongings. This adds from 12 to 24 hours to the delivery time, compared to the dedicated van. The 15m3 and above options are quicker in delivery, because your goods, once loaded, travel directly to the delivery address.
Movers from the UK to Portugal
To give you an idea of how long it takes to move your goods from the UK to Portugal, we prepared the examples. These depict different distances and the approximate times of delivery for both part load and dedicated van options.
- If you move 20 cubic metres from the North East of England to Algarve, it will take around 72 hours. The part load deliveries may take from four to five days, depending on the number of customers within the same van.
- The journey from East Midlands to Lisbon region will take around 56 hours for a dedicated van. If you order a part load, the delivery may take around 80 hours with 15 and 10 cubic metres, and up to 94 hours in a 5 cubic metres option.
- The delivery to Porto and North from the South West of England will take around 60 hours with a dedicated van option. The smaller loads may need more time for delivery, from 84 to 98 hours depending on your volume and number of customers within the same van.
Delivery time slot
We always inform our customers about the time of delivery at least one day before the collection, so that you can prepare. Please bear in mind, that as a situation on the road may be unpredictable, we always give you a few-hour time slot for delivery. Also, if we are about to come earlier, or later than expected, we always update the customer on the new time slot. MyCheapremovals values professionalism and clear and straightforward communication is a part of it.
