Default Man with a van - UK to Spain

Does anyone have any recommendations for a "man with a van" that can collect a few boxes from the Suffolk area of the UK and bring them back over to Alicante.

Thanks in advance

They're very good. I've used them for a part load and I know lots of others who have used them self drive and full removal service

Thanks everyone!

I've sent off for a quote to Jimbo the Scott. Way2go looks interesting and is good to know for future reference but I don't have enough stuff to fill up a whole van at the moment.

We've used Jimbo the Scot and he was excellent but, by his own admission, he isn't the best with technology when he's on the road - so don't panic if he is slow to reply to emails!

The only problem may be whether " a few boxes" are cost effective with any man and van. Generally there is a minimum charge for anything up to 3m3. Less than that and you may be cheaper with a postal service or consider taking it over with you if you will be flying any time soon and squeeze the goods into suitcase sizes. BA allows passengers to book up to 10 cases per person at very reasonable cost - Extra and overweight baggage | Baggage essentials | British Airways
