Hi, my partner and I are about to move from Italy back to the uk.

We will not be moving many things, just some suitcases, speakers, projector and some kitchen stuff, but will not be able to do it by plane. We were considering hiring a car and driving ourselves but then we would have to return the car to Italy and then fly to uk. Too much effort and expense.

Does anyone know of a car hiring service that allows a drop off in another country? Rather than returning it? I have been searching but have had no luck.

Or any removal companies that do small jobs for a good price? Private career? Or any other suggestions? Should I post this in another forum?

Thanks to anyone you will read and feel like lending some advice.
If you look at Italy Forum, there may be someone with a van doing a UK to Italy run and has an empty van going back, and would be interested in transporting your stuff for a good price. Or just post a message that you are looking for Italy-to-UK van run.
In Spain, there are very frequent van runs to and from UK and you don't normally have to wait long for a suitable match.

We have rented a car in England, dropped it in at the place in Dover, took the ferry across to Calais, France and drove through to Italy where we dropped it in at a place in Rome before boarding a plane home to Canada in the past. You should check them out.

Europcar
How would the OP transfer the contents of the hire car to a cross-channel ferry (as foot passengers) and then onto another car on the other side? You can only carry a couple of suitcases at most.
