Tenerife in the Canary Islands has had the highest number of residents from overseas. In addition, much of the international cargo destined for the other islands goes through Tenerife’s port at Santa Cruz. This means that our agents deals with more traffic in and out of this Canarian port than any other. Road access is usually adequate for collections and deliveries, although the capital itself becomes very congested.

The sheer number of international residents also means that the authorities have become accustomed to issuing the relevant documents needed for customs clearances. If you are moving into Tenerife you will need an NIE document and preferably a "Certificado de empadronamiento". Our agents will happily guide you on how to obtain these documents and help you deal with the entry of your goods if you do not have them. You should allow about a week for customs clearance and delivery to your residence after the vessel docks.

iMove handled my delivery and unpacking upon arrival in the UK. Nikki was in constant contact and kept me up to date on the status of the shipment throughout. The guys who unpacked me were fast, efficient, polite and careful with my items. I could have been more pleased, that's why when it was time to return to the States the choice of removal companies was easy-iMove. The price was well below other removal companies and I already knew they delivered great service. Nikki and Aaron walked me through the entire process to include additional purchase of insurance. They answered all my questions and concerns in a very professional and expedient manner. The packing crew was equally as professional and very careful with all of my items. I could not have asked for more! I had a colleague who asked me to recommend a removal company and immediately put him in touch with Nikki and Aaron. Keep up the good work guys, you're the best!
Fantastic service all round. Very professional and kept me inormed at all times
I booked this company in good faith as they claim to be experts to removals to Spain from the UK. They failed to wrap my expensive furniture, art work and mirrors on collection and I had to stop them for loading them into the van until I wrapped them myself as best as I could and at my own expense. I also made it clear when I booked the job that I leaved in the mountain in Andalucia and asked whether they could do the job; they assured me that there would not any problem. It turned out that when the stuff was supposed to be delivered to the property, the van driver which was hired was totally inexperienced at driving on mountain roads and the van booked was simply too big; half of my stuff was left on the side of the road in the dust and under the sun for hours as my husband was left to watch over it whilst the driver tried to deliver half to the house. When time came to deliver the second half, the driver refused to do so and all the goods were loaded back to the van to be taken to a storage area some 200 kms away. The following day Imove International advised me that they could not find another driver to deliver to the house and that I would have to organise collection at my own expense. I am extremely disappointed with the service given and I would advise anyone to avoid this company like the plague! I would not even give a 1 star rating...
