Moving to Portugal?


At Bishop’s Move, we have a heritage of over 165 years of removals experience. Our specially trained team undertakes regular trips to Portugal and their country-specific knowledge and understanding of the local area mean they have the expertise to direct a seamless, high-quality move to Portugal

Portugal is a highly sought-after destination for British citizens looking to start a new life overseas, with Brits making up one of the largest expat groups in the country. The Mediterranean climate, sandy beaches, quality healthcare system, low levels of crime and a comparably low cost of living are all factors which contribute to its popularity. 

Portugal Removals Package

When you decide to move to Portugal, our European division should be your first port of call. Our expert advisers will arrange a free home visit from one of our professional moving consultants who will then conduct a moving survey. During the visit, your consultant will assess the contents of your home, ascertain your requirements and guide you through the removals process. They will put your mind at ease by answering any questions you might have. 

Following the survey, we will put together a bespoke moving plan and no-obligation quote, outlining all of the services you require within a detailed package that is tailored to your specific needs.

Transporting Your Belongings

Upon acceptance of your personalised quote, we will get in touch to confirm your moving date and ensure that all requirements remain the same. Our professional packing team will prepare your belongings, packing and wrapping everything with high-quality materials and specific protective techniques.

Your belongings will then be expertly loaded into our vehicles for safe transportation by road to Portugal, all the way to the door of your new home. All Bishop’s Move vehicles are fitted with modern satellite tracking and communication systems and are subject to regular servicing to ensure their reliability. 

Once we reach your destination, we can either unload your belongings and allow you to unpack, or we can do it for you, depending on the package you have chosen.

Our purpose-built warehouses in both the UK and Portugal are securely monitored, clean and dry so you can rest assured that your items will be in safe hands during your extended transition period.  Then, when you are ready to receive your belongings, we will deliver them quickly and efficiently.
