How to Move


Data: 15 de outubro de 2015 às 18:15

From England to Lisbon - Portugal

We have moved our household from England to Lisbon in August 2015 using Transportes Beleza Lda.

Prior to deciding for Beleza a cost comparison with other movers showed the competitiveness of the Portuguese company. The price and quality was outstanding:

1. Timely arrival

2. New equipment

3. Professional and friendly personnel

4. Best packaging technique ever seen

Transportes Beleza offers its clients to track the lorry dedicated to its removal and kept us updated during the whole process.

The household was delivered as schedule at our full satisfaction. For our next move we will consider again Transportes Beleza.

Removal from Madeira, Portugal to Mornington, Victoria, Australia

Date: 2011/8/18

I am very happy to report that our container was delivered to our house yesterday and we are very pleased with the way you handled this difficult move.

The boat was delayed by four days due to storms in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Western Australia with waves of over 7m high! We expected problems anyway as this is on the other side of the planet and the voyage was to last six weeks.

So a big "muito obrigado" to you and your team for a very professional job and we shall not hesitate to recommend your Company to any potential customers.
