Delivery time

As Portugal is about 1,500 miles away from the UK, the average journey usually takes between 36 and 72 hours. However, the exact delivery time depends on the volume you choose.

20m3 and 30m3 – large removals options – are the quickest to deliver, as the van once loaded goes straight to your delivery address. In this case, the delivery might be expected even two days after the collection.

Smaller, part-load volume options, such as 5, 10 and 15 cubic meters may be delivered to the final destination up to three days after the collection. These volume options slightly postpone the delivery, as they might include other pick-ups. Nevertheless, the idea of joining your removal with someone else immensely contributes to the final quote.

Next steps

Having learnt the time schedules for collecting different volume options, and knowing the size of your load, you can finally book a removal to the UK.

As soon as your booking appears in the system, you will receive the confirmation email from our Customer Service representative, with the blank inventory list attached. If you have not prepared the list of the items yet, you will be advised to use the document and prepare one now. This document is essential for both insurance and customs purposes.

Customs Clearance

As you intend to move to a country that is not an EU member, we will need to receive a set of documents for customs clearance. The documents for the removals to the UK include:

Now, if you have not purchased the materials essential to pack your items, that would be the next step to consider. You may find it helpful to read up on our articles concerning the necessary packing materials and tips for packing.

As you are packing your goods, it would be a good idea to compare it with the initial inventory list and make some amendments. Making an exhaustive inventory of your belongings is essential to establish a value statement.

The inventory list, together with the rest of the documents for customs should be sent to us at least three days before the planned collection date or slot.

Our Customer Service Representative will contact you at least one day before the collection to confirm the information about the date and time of collection and delivery, addresses, and payment.

moving_to_spain_after_brexit.jpg

Every year thousands of Brits decide to escape the rainy UK climate and relocate to sunny Spain. However, the Brexit vote left many people uncertain about this choice. Many people are wondering if spending time in Spain, whether on holiday or in retirement is still possible, let alone moving or starting a business in Spain.

Nevertheless, Brits (and other people from countries outside of the EU) can apply for permission to reside in Spain, provided that they comply with the Spanish immigration rules. In this article, we will explain what may be necessary to move to Spain and how British citizens can obtain residency status after Brexit.

This article is only a guide – MyCheapRemovals don’t provide pet shipping services

Are you planning to move to Spain with pets, such as dogs and cats? Well, you need to make a lot of arrangements from choosing the right airline, making official health certificates, to understanding the Spanish rules and regulations regarding pets, especially dogs.

Not have any ideas? Need guidance?

You have landed in the right place. This article will guide you on how to move to Spain with pets, and it definitely applies to dogs as well. We are mainly focusing on dogs as they are the most common pets that are taken along. Let’s dive deep!

How To Move To Spain With Dogs

Here are a few tips that you should consider if you intend to move to Spain with your dog.

  1. Prepare for travelling with a pet
    If you are about to travel abroad with your pet, remember it should have:

    • up-to-date vaccination records against rabies (you must wait 21 days from the date of the rabies vaccination before travelling),
    • up-to-date veterinary health certificates, (clinical examination, deworming, deticking) taking into account the regulations of the country of departure, the country of destination and any transit airports,
    • special passport (issued by a vet) with a description of colour, race and sex of the animal together with a microchip number or tattoo,
    • microchip implant,
    • suitable container

    When travelling with your pet dog, cat or ferret, the rules you must follow depend on the country you are going to or coming from. Relatedly, understanding the international as well as Spanish transportation rules and regulations is the crucial step. The next step includes visiting the accredited veterinarian where you can obtain a pet passport (the passport stays valid as long as you continue to meet the entry requirements) and other certificates necessary for exporting your furry friend. Moreover, your transport company may need a statement from your vet confirming that your pet is fit to travel. Please bear in mind that any carelessness in this step can result in the cancellation of your air ticket.

  2. Taking the pet onboard
    Air travelling to Spain with your dog does not have to be an expensive option, but it requires some arrangements. Do your research and find out which airlines accept pets in the cabin or in the cargo hold.
    For your and other passengers’ comfort the airlines can only take a limited number of pets in the cabin, so making a phone reservation for your pet is necessary. The airlines usually advise to do so at the latest within 24 hours after you have booked your ticket, but at least 24 hours before departure.
    Usually, there are three travel options for animals:

      • in the cabin,
      • in the baggage hold,
      • in the baggage hold as cargo.

    Please remember that the travel option depends on the weight and size of your pet as well as regulations of the country of destination. It is also worth mentioning, that the airlines may reserve the right to refuse carriage of the pet in case of reaching the limit of the number of pets carried on a given flight – both in the cabin and as cargo.
    Here it is worth mentioning that American airlines allow you to bring two dogs to Spain with only $200 more as an additional cost. So it is good to check the special dog relocation offers associated with particular airlines.

  3. Choose Kennels but Crates Are Also Perfectly OK!
    Once you have selected the right airline, the next step is to create an inviting space for your dog. You should go through the requirements of the airline for the kennel size, but it is also important to spend considerable time in making the temporary home of your pet as comfortable as possible.
    The Spanish Security system also demands the wearing of a muzzle for certain breeds, such as American Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, and Dogo Argentinos, etc.
  4. Check Whether Your Pet Is Carry-on or Cargo Baggage?
    Of course, your pet cannot tell how you should take it to Spain. It is up to you to decide whether to carry it as Carry-on, or Cargo Baggage. Here you should keep in mind that if you want to take your dog as checked Baggage, it will be on a first-come and first-serve basis. It obviously works for only one or two pets.
    So, if you have a family of three to five or even more pets, you should book all your pets in Cargo.
  5. Moving To Spain By Sea
    If you are moving to Spain by sea with your dog, you will need to approve your pet at different points by showing the documents and paperwork

Wrapping Up
You may face some challenges while moving your pet from the US or any other country to Spain, so bring a dose of patience with you.
Never mind if things don’t go as planned. However, by focusing on the above-mentioned tips you can ensure a safe and relaxing journey.
Happy Hunting!
