One common misconception that homeowners can have during a foreclosure situation is that they can somehow transfer ownership of a property and that this will stop the foreclosure in its tracks. Nothing could be further from the truth, however, and simply signing over the deed to the house to a third party will put the owners in a much more vulnerable situation than when their own names were on the title. Using a quitclaim deed or other transfer document will also do nothing to make the bank end its lawsuit to take the home.

Hi Yvette, no did not get your message! We used Grayson Freight Services

Grayson Freight Services
4 Hollands Road, Haverhill, Suffolk. CB9 8PP
Tel : 01440 762558 Fax : 01440 707119
08.00hrs-17.00hrs

We lived in the north east of England. They provided a container. We packed it (with the help of about 15 friends). It sailed from Teesport the next day and arrived in Lisbon 10 days later. After clearing customs it was delivered to us in Lagos 2 days later. We hired a local company to unload it. They even assembled the beds/table/chairs etc for 400 Euros. Job done! Saved ourselves a fortune on other quotes we had got.

Hi Yvette.
Like Woodpecker I too can highly recommend Grayson Freight. Whilst I have not used them to ship large items I did need to send a small heavy parcel to the Algarve. Although they do not usually deal with items as small as mine was, a nice chap called Roger Goody pulled out all the stops and parcel was duly delivered safe and sound.
Best wishes, Bunny Lady.

Moving is an event that can drive even the most organized and prepared person crazy. With the chaos surrounding the relocation of a home, it is no surprise that many different things can go wrong. In order to minimize trouble and chaos, it is vital to find a good moving company to deal with. The company is going to be handling all of your things, so you should not take any shortcuts when it comes to choosing the company. You need to verify licenses, talk to references, and get everything in writing. The hardest part of the process, however, is finding the perfect place to begin.

Start and the Beginning

The best place to start anything is at the beginning. For a move or relocation, this beginning is contacting moving companies and getting moving quotes for the job at hand. Getting moving quotes is a very important tool for any type of move, and as such, you should never skip this step. Building a moving budget will require what you need to pay for throughout your move as well as any other backup savings you will need if something goes wrong. These quotes will also show you about what certain things will cost, allowing you to better figure out a moving budget.

Just out of interest how much can one get into a container?

I was considering using Direct Transport, cheapest quote I had found, they put everything in the container and I was quoted €1,200 + VAT for a 3 bed house but we have 3 kids so lots of beds and toys etc. Can't remember how many m3 as my pc crashed and I've lost the quote. Lovely people though, very helpful.

Ho much time in advance do these things need booking?
