DAVID DALE Removalswas started in 1976 with one small van and a part time helper.
The business grew steadily and in 1978 they bought their first proper removal truck.
In 1981 they did their first removal to Spain and it was so successful that others quickly followed.
In the 1980’s prospective residents had to go through the customs formalities obtaining Residencias at the Spanish Consulate in either London or Manchester.
Moving to Spain involved paying a bond at the Spanish border based on the value of the goods they brought into the country.
In 1992 the customs formalities were lifted throughout the EU and moving to and from Spain became a much simpler operation.
From 1993 David Dale Removals started their weekly UK-Spain- UK service.
This takes place 50 weeks of the year, only pausing during Christmas and New year celebrations.
In 1995 warehouse premises were acquired in Fuengirola, Malaga Province, and in 2000 a container store was opened in Benissa and later in Almoradi.
Today the company operate 10 vehicles of various sizes from small transit vans to the largest trucks the EU will allow on the roads.
Four staff work from the furniture store in Almoradi and the sales office is based in Torrevieja.
The company pay a great deal of attention to the quality of service they offer being members of the Office of Fair Trading, British Association of Removers and the Road Haulage Association International Section.
Their staff are all trained by the British Association of Removals in handling furniture and delicate objects.
