About Us

We moved from the UK to Fuerteventura in 2003 and shipped our motorcycle and personal effects over in a dedicated 20ft container .Having encountered problems with Customs’ paperwork, our possessions eventually arrived to our new home 14 weeks after their departure from the UK! We also flew our dog over (a beautiful male Rottweiler) and he arrived very stressed… it took him months to get back to his ‘old self’.

These events made us think about an alternative way to transport pets and consignments to the islands as we thought this must be a common ‘problem area’ with others having had the same problems as we encountered. With a background history of running vehicles in the UK and Mainland Europe we already had certain knowledge of international transport and so ran a viability check to see if an overland vehicle service would be worthwhile… and we have never looked back! We now run a vehicle back and forth bi-monthly and also offer regular container shipments too; whether for part or dedicated loads, to and from the Canary Islands.

We work closely with UK, Mainland EU and Spanish Customs’ Agents so are able to offer up to date information to our Clients to ensure a smooth transit. We also liaise with airports both locally and internationally for air-freight consignments.

We are a small, family-run company and as such our dedicated team can offer the personal but professional touch which sometimes goes amiss with the larger companies.

  • We can tailor-make our Client’s requirements and operate within any reasonable time-frame they may require us to work to.
  • We are on hand to offer services such as house-visits, inventory translations, completion of all paperwork requirements at both departure and destination countries. (Making it as ‘stress-free’ for our Clients as possible).
  • We have a full range of packaging materials available on Fuerteventura and can deliver these to Lanzarote too


 Our team can also wrap, pack and load/unload containers in the UK or on Fuerteventura & Lanzarote. To complete our portfolio we  offer clean & insured storage facilities on Fuerteventura and in the UK, making us the ‘one-stop’ transport    company!
