The most recent surge has been from international relocation to and from Spain. Executives moving to different countries, students going abroad or students returning home, people sending their luggage to Australia or South America. Here is a typical comment:
“Hi Edmund the chair made it here in 2 working days, thank you so much for the great service not to mention the price.” (It was a HUGE chair imported through FedEx Freight).
Last week we sent a lady’s personal belongings from Spain to the USA and imported a gentleman’s personal belongings from the USA to Spain. We courier lots of Amazon returns back to Amazon in the UK and in the USA. We also ship to Amazon UK Spanish items that they sell on their website.
Every week we send from Spain items sold on eBay and import to Spain items bought on eBay. We import and distribute within Spain a leading brand of spectacles. We import clothes from the USA, China and India to Spain and we export clothes from Spain to many countries in the World, including wedding dresses, children’s clothes and flamenco dresses.
As is normal during the holiday season we are returning to the UK owners’ laptops left in airport security, cameras and mobiles left in hotel rooms, car keys left in hire cars and as more people leave behind smartphones and book readers in Spain this is bound to increase. Sensible holidaymakers courier their luggage to and from Spain so they don’t have to wait at the baggage carousel and pay the extortionate airline excess luggage fees. I once saw a 90 minute queue at the car hire desk in Malaga Airport so it really pays to be first in the line!
