Thanks for the info rfc, they examples are a lot less than the examples I have seen so far on the internet. Will give them a try when the time comes.
A 4 bedroom house will have more stuff than we had. We sold the sofa/living room furniture before we left. But we did have loads of kitchen stuff, beds, books, garden stuff, etc. Depending on where you are in Britain, I wouldn't expect any change out of 3.5K if I were you.

Thumbs up Re: Removal Costs

Hi all,
Thanks rfc, that is about what we had reckoned. I think we would be doing extremely well if we paid less! Better keep buying those lottery tickets then!

We moved last year from East Sussex, used Witham Brothers based in Bexhill and Alicante, they were excellent and it cost us £1460 for a Luton van load. No hassle of doing it yourself and they can also store your stuff for you at a reasonable rate. They advertise in the Costa Blanca News and the UK press.

Thats a very good price. We did our own with a Luton van and it cost us just about the same. I felt happy knowing that I was in control of the load, and it was an experience. But if I had found that price, I would have been tempted.

It was from Thrifty Van rental in Coventry
Yes, it included all those costs, we used the tunnel and the rental was actually for 7 days although we drove non stop each way and could have done it in much less time

Please note...not all Thrifty rental branches allow vans to go abroard, as they are all franchises.
