BMC European was first conceived in late 1999 by Mitchell Hawkins & Partner Bradfield and began trading in February 2000. Initially offering a transport and removals service for the North Wiltshire area, we soon found ourselves’ doing the first of what would be many European removals and deliveries.
Seeing a gap in the market, and not to mention enjoying European travel, our business soon became European only removals and deliveries, with the vast majority of our ‘early days’ customers moving to Spain and France. Skip forward some 18 years and we have not only moved countless people to and from BULGARIA, PORTUGAL, SPAIN, ROMANIA etc but to virtually all other European countries and Morocco, Tunisia & Turkey too. We are now also based in Gibraltar on the southern Iberian peninsula serving the local community as well as being close to Sotogrande and Marbella where also now offer a full range of local services...
We’ve kept the business relatively small (which has put us in good standing what with the recession impacting the property markets several years ago!) but we like to think we can more than compete with the larger firms. Not just on price, but on the service we offer, which we like to think is one of the better, more reliable and friendly ones. It's our business and we care about how it is run and how we manage a removal. Over the years we've either seen or heard about such shoddy service supplied by some so called professional outfits. We've a great team of people and contacts that all offer a great service.
We grow a little each year with our ever increasing customer base, including some corporate ones, and high worth individuals looking for a discreet delivery service too! Utilising the latest Iveco Daily vans and new to the market Vauxhall/Opel Monvano's which offer up a big 18 cubic metres of load volume, to which we team up with large secure German made box trailers (with their own independent suspension) which offer a further 22 cubic metres of volume. We use the best in trailer manufacturers - Bockermann with high security features. Unlike other firms, our vehicles are rated at 5500kg. This means they can carry around 2300kg whereas most large Sprinter type vans can only carry less than half of this.
The vans are ideal for the small to medium moves and with the trailer added, we can cater for the medium to larger moves too. So whether it's 5 cubic metres to or around Marbella or 75 cubic metres to antibes! - we can help. And since late 2017, we are now running heavier vehicles to handle even more payload.
