Default Moving from Crete to,London U.K.

hi my son and family live in Crete and want to move back to the U.K. My son is a web developer. Is there a way to rent a one way truck to move belongings? Anybody know what the web development opportunities are in the London area? Any information would be really helpful.

... but it could be very picturesque...... ferry to Athens, then ferry to Brindisi/Italy, then up through Italy, Switzerland, France to UK

Shouldn't take more than 4 to 5 days (depending on ferry times and how many stops the driver wants)

Doubt whether Crete would have a one way truck service though.....

thanks. I thought it was a long shot to rent a truck one way.

Thank you. It was wishful thinking. It’s expensive to move back, despite no furniture, just computers, books, personal items. Looking for an inexpensive way to move it.

Maybe buy a van in Crete, drive it to the UK with all the belongings, then sell it (presumably it'll be LHD) to someone moving to the Continent?
