Moving to Portugal from UK with Thompson & Son
If you’re planning on moving to Portugal from UK, you don’t just need a Portuguese Removals Company. Instead, you want a UK company with the local knowledge and experience at both ends, to get you from your old hometown to the new. That’s where Thompson & Son comes in. With over 60 years in the industry, we have built a reputation as one of the leading removal companies in transporting UK customers to Europe, offering personalised and reliable services for those moving to Portugal.

As a family-run business, we understand the importance of making your move as smooth and stress-free as possible. Our team is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service, ensuring that you have a positive experience throughout the entire process.
Before moving to Portugal from UK can begin, you’ll need an assessment of your belongings to determine the volume and packing requirements. Thompson & Son offers both in-person and video surveys to accommodate your needs. Our experienced surveyors will visit your home or conduct a video call to assess the items to be moved, taking note of any special requirements or delicate items that may need extra care during transit.
We’ll assess and discuss your packing requirements, offering professional advice on the best methods to protect your items during the move. Our team is also available to provide a full packing service, using high-quality materials to ensure the safe transportation of your belongings. Alternatively, we can supply you with the necessary packing materials if you prefer to pack your items yourself.
We Arrange the Paperwork
One of the most daunting aspects of moving to a new country is navigating the paperwork and legal requirements. As an experienced moving company in Portugal, Thompson & Son will handle all the necessary documentation on your behalf. From customs clearance to insurance, we will ensure that all the paperwork is completed correctly and on time, allowing you to focus on settling into your new home.
At Thompson & Son, we understand that sometimes your move may not be as straightforward as simply moving from one house to another. Whether you need temporary storage in transit while waiting for your new property to be ready, or longer-term storage solutions, we have secure, climate-controlled facilities available to keep your belongings safe. Our flexible storage options cater to your individual needs, providing peace of mind during your move to Portugal.
Direct-shared and Groupage-shared options
There are two main ways to transport your goods abroad, these are Direct-shared and Groupage-shared.
This service generally means we come and pack your belongings and then head straight to the boat and directly to your new property on your chosen dates. A direct-shared move is ideal for those who need to move quickly and want the assurance that their items will arrive at their destination on a specific date.
This option is generally chosen for a number of reasons, such as when your consignment is not a full house, or you are in no particular rush for delivery. These loads are grouped together with other customers’ belongings, which is reflected in the costs being lower. A groupage-shared move allows for greater flexibility and can be more cost-effective for those with smaller consignments or more relaxed timeframes.
Moving to Portugal should be an exciting adventure, and choosing the right removal company can make all the difference. With Thompson & Son’s expertise, personalised service, and commitment to customer satisfaction, you can trust us to take care of every aspect of your move, ensuring a smooth transition into your new life in Portugal.
