How we move your items to Portugal

When handling international removals to Portugal, we offer a choice of two transit methods – road freight and air freight. Both transit modes have different advantages so the most appropriate choice for you will depend on a number of factors. When choosing a method for sending your international removals, you’ll want to consider your budget, schedule and end location.

Road freight

Road Freight is the most economical way to move your belongings to Portugal. If you’re looking to transport your items on a budget, this is the best option to do so. While it is the most affordable transit method to Europe, road freight is also the slower of the two options.

Predicted road freight transit time: 2 – 4 weeks

If you are looking to transport your goods via road freight, we have two further options you can choose from:

  • Exclusive container: Your goods will be transported to Portugal, via their own container. This is a more direct option, and your items will reach your destination faster.
  • Shared container: Your goods will be transported to Portugal, via a shared container with other customers’ goods heading for the same destination. This option takes slightly longer, but it’s more cost effective as you only pay for the space your goods take up.

Air freight

Air freight is the fastest way to move goods worldwide from the United Kingdom. Air freight removals costs are calculated on the total weight of your load so it is more expensive than sending by road. It is best if you are sending minimal items that need to be moved quickly.  When removals arrive at the end destination, there are a number of options for collection or delivery.

Predicted Air Freight Transit Time: 5-15 days
