Hello Michelle, just checked forum for the last time from France; we are moving to Spain today! Its so exciting, after life being on hold for so long, we are finally moving!
I have two horses to take, they were collected yesterday, if you would like to write to me privately on firstname.lastname@example.org
I will give you some help as to who I used and what they were like etc etc.
We came out from England to France November 2005. I used a brilliant horse transporter from Grantham, and would most definately have used him again but the silly man just had to take a holiday??? Why people need holidays when there is work to be done??? [lol]
It took me a long, long time to find someone who was willing to work round me, most people had very vague plans and wouldn't commit to specific dates, which is not easy when dates for house removals have to be accommodated and worked around too.
Anyway, if you want to know how it went, I shall be happy to recommend [or not] firms we have dealt with. I certainly have some names to avoid. One in particular, but I am not prepared to put it here.
Whether you use my help or not, I hope you have a great time when you get to Spain.
We are going to be in the Alicante area.
Take care, Barbara
