Many people returned to the UK from Spain before, during, and after Spain’s lockdown earlier this year.
Since then, the threat of a second viral wave, the introduction of the compulsory use of face coverings, quarantine periods and the sensible pleas to discourage travel, has seen very few people return.
Many people were unable to return with their belongings and the past few months has seen Indalo Transport and Indalo Storage recover and store a mountain of furniture, bicycles and golf clubs for repatriation. Only this week we travelled from Spain to reunite several sets of clubs, along with a full removal, to grateful owners in Norwich.
We first met these clients over three years ago. They had sold a large property in the mountains of the Sierra Filabres and were planning on downsizing. They had decided that, going forward, they would rent in Spain during the winter and spring, then return to the UK for the summer and autumn. It appears that many people have done the same – and with Brexit looming it will probably be a trend going forward but possibly on a 90 day basis because of the new restrictions coming into force at the end of the year
Our clients had one problem, what to do with their belongings between rents. Indalo Transport had the solution. We moved the items they thought they would need for the rental property into storage whilst the rest of the furniture and belongings followed them back to the UK on one of our regular road trains.
Whilst in the UK they planned the winter rental and arranged for us to deliver their goods on the day of their arrival. This was repeated each year and enabled them to enjoy life in both countries surrounded by things familiar and treasured. At the end of each rental period the process was reversed.
Today with the incorporation of Indalo Transport Removals SL and the huge warehouse in Palomares we can offer the same service to a much larger amount of people within Almeria and Murcia Province, people who relish the thought of winter sunshine without the fiscal worries of the Spanish tax man.
If the 90 day period allowed by the EU for non-residents is enforced, and we see no evidence that it won’t be, then Indalo Storage can help renters and owners alike.
Our storage terms allow generous discounts for periods of 3 or 6 months and 1 year, with extremely competitive collection and delivery terms.
We also have the Self-Pack store at Indalo Storage, selling a full range of boxes and packaging materials, along with dust sheets, sofa and armchair covers, and a range of professional moving tools.
