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.

I went to great lengths to explain to [Staff Member] about the access limitations to my house which wouldn't allow a large furniture truck. Even sent him photographs and guided him to find us on Google Earth. All to absolutely no avail, I might as well have been talking to the wall in the office, the notice he took. The company has refused to acknowledge my e-mails and calls since, and what is even worse, a couple of items got broken (which is why we pay insurance). They have refused to give me their Insurer's details... one has to wonder if the insurance funds were actually paid on by Imove. I am out of pocket by having to hire at very short notice, local transport to shuttle my stuff from the main trunk road up to my home. The actual movers who were sub-contracted by Imove could not have been more helpful, but the reality is no way could they get to my house with their Road-train truck. The IMove company is just a front desk, there is no substance behind it and the level of service once they have your money is diabolical. Trading Standards will be informed, certainly with regard to the apparent non-payment of the Insurance fee.
Never used this company, the packing people stolen my daughter smartTV, my new hair straightening, my husband brand staff for gym , everything worth about £2000 Disappointed
All done exactly as discussed and price as quoted. Very quickly moved and all well packed and protected. All so easy.
