“Thanks for getting us moved so quickly and efficiently on Friday 21 May. Even with our packing nothing was broken. I would also like to mention the helpfulness and professionalism from the two members of your staff, unfortunately we didn’t catch their names. Thank you very much. We would have no hesitation in recommending your service to anyone. ”

Mr and Mrs Young, ESSEX.

“I wish to confirm the safe receipt of two boxes shipped by your company to Lyttelton in New Zealand, last November. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent and speedy service, both in the UK and by your agents in Christchurch.”

Mrs E Morton, NEW ZEALAND.

“I thought I would write and say a big thank you for your excellent services this year in respect of my move to Cyprus. I have to say that your company was not the cheapest, or the most expensive, but for service, efficiency and delivery spot on time as quoted. Your company comes out tops every time and scores 11/10. Even this side your agents were very good as well, they were helpful and pleasant and made sure that I did not have to pay any excessive charges. The icing came on the cake when I didn’t have to sort boxes out, they put everything just where it was required and cleared all the rubbish away.”


Overseas Removals

Removals to The continent

Digby’s have been specialising in removals to the Continent since the early 1980’s. The procedure for moving to Spain, France, Portugal or anywhere else on the continent is not that different from moving within the UK. Our Surveyor will visit you to discuss your service requirements and provide you with a free quotation.

If you choose to pack your small personal and household items yourself, we will deliver the cartons to you before your move with ample time to pack. Alternatively, you can opt for our packing service. Our fully trained packers will either come to your residence the day before your move to carry out a pre-pack or they will pack on the day of your move depending on the volume.

Once packed, your goods will be transported to our containerised storage facility until you require delivery at your new residence. We offer storage facilities both in the UK and Spain.

Removals to Spain, Portugal and France go by road, twice monthly in one of our vehicles that are fitted with a Vehicle Management System. This system uses Satellite Navigation Technology to pin-point the position of our vehicle’s. This has obvious security benefits as well as allowing us to check the progress of our delivery schedule at all times

Overseas Removals

Digby’s has access to the most reliable and fastest shipping services available, whatever your destination. The company handles removals to and from over 300 countries and territories worldwide. It offers a comprehensive range of services tailored to each customer’s needs, whether it’s one box or a full household.

Digby’s experienced staff will choose the most direct route for your destination. The routing will take into account the cost and timing to meet your own requirements. This could be a dedicated full load container for your exclusive use or a part-load consignment.

Modern container vessels provide a first class service with a scheduled time-table that allows you to plan ahead with confidence. Digby’s also keep in contact with Worldwide Shipping Lines along with Overseas Agents to keep you informed of any progress.

At Destination

When your consignment arrives at its destination it will require the same careful and efficient handling to complete your move.

Digby’s Overseas Agents provide us and our customers with a first class service, be it delivered to residence or just to the Port of arrival itself.

Our Agent will handle the import documentation, customs clearance and delivery for you (if required). The delivery crew will unpack everything, set it up as you require and remove the used packing materials, all exercising the same care and attention.

If your new home is not ready or you require to take delivery of your personal effects at a later date, Digby’s can also offer storage for all, or part of your shipment until your plans are decided overseas.
