Welcome to Northovers – Local home and business removals across the UK & Europe since 1980


Do you need an experienced removals firm to take the stress out of moving your home or business to Portugal? Relocating abroad can be fraught with logistical challenges, but you can be sure that as one of the UK’s fastest growing removal firms, with over 35 years experience, your move abroad will be safe in our hands – from start to finish.


Removals and moving storage – overseas shipping and European relocationBefore you trust your precious contents with a removals company, it’s worth investigating their pedigree and customer service. With over 35 years experience in removals to Portugal, Spain and the rest of Europe by road, we like to think you can trust our intricate knowledge, resources and customer-first ethos to ensure your move is as streamlined and as ‘hassle free’ as possible.

  • Quality Control every step of the way
  • We offer the option of full contents liability cover during your move to Portugal
  • We utilise our own specialist vehicles and expert staff for European removals, operating approximately 12 vehicles including 17-tonne trucks with trailers and 40ft vehicles with a 100-cubic metre capacity.
  • Competitively priced – the best quality, at the best possible price
  • Northovers supply the removal services and vehicles for many smaller UK and European removal firms
  • We provide removal services across Europe including Portugal, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Italy as well as emerging markets, including Czech Republic, Serbia & Bulgaria and beyond.
  • A modern tracking system that monitors the movement of our specialist removals vehicles, enabling us to co-ordinate any return freight, making your transportation even more cost efficient.


Most of our customers opt for our regular road service unless their relocation is required at short-notice. Whether you are moving your whole household contents and vehicles from the UK – or if you currently reside in Lisbon, Algarve, Faro, Villarreal or elsewhere in Portugal and are planning to relocate back home – let us handle the logistics of your removal, giving you time to focus on your new life or career abroad.


Our pricing system is essentially based on a 2-tier system: if you need to move your household furniture and contents to France quickly, we will load, transport and deliver your goods within an agreed time frame. If price is your main concern, we’ll move your contents in conjunction with our other removals to Portugal or Spain.

Welcome to Northovers – Local home and business removals across the UK, Spain, France & Portugal since 1980Moving abroad requires adaptability, not just experience. We pride ourselves on being flexible to changing arrangements, move-in dates and regulations, as well as having the astuteness to envisage challenges before they occur.

For the past 35 years that we’ve been transporting customers to Portugal, we’ve built up a sound working relationship with local Portuguese removal companies and suppliers. If we are faced with difficult access and delivery situations, we have the requisite resources to handle any challenge and to hire smaller vehicles for trans-shipment (where we can’t get our vehicle near your property) or storing your contents until you are ready for your belongings and furniture to be delivered to your new property.

  1. Our removals specialists will visit your home or business and prepare and package all items to move.
  2. We’ll make a detailed inventory survey.

  5. If access to your property is restricted in any way, we’ll find a smaller vehicle.
  6. Whether you are moving the entire contents of your home or just a few items to another office on the continent, you can be sure that your possessions are safe in our care.
  7. We also offer full-liability cover to ensure your contents are covered door to door, for any eventuality.
