may i ask if you know what their delivery policy is? ie how often do they deliver?There is a large moveis shop in Viseu which is about an hour from you. It's called JOM. We bought our bed / matress / dining table and chairs from there and they deliver but it will cost you as you live a distance away. JOM has a lot of choice too. Viseu has quite a lot to offer. It's lovely city.

In all situations I guess it is up to the buyer as to how much to spend, there are shops to cater for all tastes and prices plus some do built to order sizes which are not scarily expensive.
Bear in mind that most rentals are iirc are un-furnished so you would need some furniture and as we have found out as we brought all our furniture from the UK some of it has not stood up to the harsher light here, (having and using shutters in the day helps) and most of it does not match stylistically to the house, as SWMBO tells me at every opportunity.
We have sourced furniture at below UK prices for comparable/better products, so your call I guess
Hi DuchessHi Rob
Did you use a removals firm to bring over your furniture or did you ship it? Is it expensive using a firm?
Did you rent before you bought?
Did you come over by ferry using a UK car?
