A happy customer and friends on Tilos, Greece

“I was not looking forward to moving my belongings to Greece, however the team at Nomad were fantastic with their door to door service.
I didn’t really have furniture, but lots of boxes that I packed up myself. The guys arrived at my home in Kent to collect everything. They were efficient, professional, polite and very helpful. Taking great care of everything, but especially a large canvas and my television. They were soon loaded up and my things went to Peterborough to wait for transportation to Greece.
My consignment turned out to be a bit smaller that the estimate and my quote was adjusted, which was a nice surprise, even though I had added an extra box sending it via courier to Peterborough.
Arrival in Greece was on time. I was a bit concerned about then truck making it’s way up my track, as it quite narrow with overhanging olives, but the guys navigated without any problems. They unloaded all my things swiftly and placed everything where I wanted.
What a fabulous service from start to finish. Professional and not over priced.
If you’re looking for international removals ‘NOMAD’ are the best in my opinion.”

Mrs Fitzgeraldtransport from Kent, UK to Zakynthos, Greece June 2024

“We have moved many times over the years and chose Nomad International for our relocation from Wiltshire to Koroni in April. The entire team are professional and among the best we have worked with. The packing team were great problem solvers & everything arrived this end without any breakages. All boxes were labelled clearly & itemised on the packing sheets. All customs paperwork was dealt with by Nomad and the whole process went very smoothly. Even though we had worked hard to get rid of items in preparation for the move, we still had 1300 cubic feet to transport. On the delivery day, the men weren’t thrilled about all the steps, but they didn’t complain and did an amazing job of emptying the container and getting all the boxes into the right rooms. I would definitely recommend the team at Nomad International.”

Mr & Mrs Foxtransport from Wiltshire, UK to Koroni, Greece April 2024

“Since the travesty of Brexit was thrust upon us, we have had great difficulty in getting realistic and reliable companies to transport our packages from the U.K. to our home in Greece. What attracted us to Nomad International was their professional attitude, their realistic pricing, the regularity with which they deliver to Greece and the care which is taken to determine that the transportation package they offered us was suitable for both our needs and our budget.

Our shipment was, to many transportation companies too small to be bothered with, however we were offered space available on a larger delivery to Greece if we were prepared to wait for delivery, for a few weeks longer. As we live on Zakynthos Island, we were afraid that it would involve us in having to organize secondary delivery couriers to bring our goods from Mainland Greece to the Island, however we were quickly assured that the additional short delay in delivery, determined that we would get a door to door service to our home on the Island. While we were at first sceptical that we would actually get such a service, we were soon assured that all would be exactly as stated.

Having taken delivery of our packages, all in pristine condition, and unloaded and put into place by two very able men, I can state quite unequivocally that we would most definitely both use Nomad International again, and would highly recommend their services to anyone contemplating either a full move or smaller deliveries.
Our thanks go to Nomad for making our life so much easier.”

Mr & Mrs Thrifttransport from Peterborough, UK to Zakynthos, Greece June 2024

“Hi Dan
Once again, Nomad have triumphed! Tom and Mason did an excellent job of getting everything safely delivered – going above and beyond the call of duty by getting my favourite armchair in through the window!! What really nice guys they are too.

Honestly, I think the guys here and in Crete (not forgetting the lovely Maria!) are the best and most helpful people in the business! My sincere thanks to all at Nomad.

Best wishes”

Mrs Lynntransport from Crete, Greece to Ipswich, UK May 2024

“Dear Takis

I used Nomad International to transport my personal belongings from Kefalonia to the UK. The entire operation went incredibly smoothly from start to finish and the staff were extremely efficient. Takis was super helpful from the start and I thought the costs of the removal and transportation were very reasonable.
I would not hesitate to recommend highly Nomad International”

Mrs Martintransport from Kefalonia, Greece to UK May 2024

“We have used Nomad on a couple of occasions to ship goods from the UK to the Greek island of Kefalonia.
We have transported everything from antiques to large garden ornaments – everything has been handled diligently and in a way which has ensured that every item arrived intact. Both the UK packing teams and the Greek delivery teams are well trained and efficient, and genuinely care about your possessions. The team also keep you informed at every step of the process to support planning to occupy your new home.
It’s a big move to relocate to another country! We have done it twice and have no hesitation in recommending Nomad as an excellent option to support your move.
Thanks for everything Dan”

Mrs Cuppertransport from Dorset, UK to Kefalonia, Greece April 2024

“I was moving some furniture from the UK to Corfu. I booked Nomad after seeing some reviews, but you are never quite sure. The team collected my furniture and ensured it was fully wrapped and boxed. Everything arrived in Corfu on time and in one piece, which I had been concerned about ! They were very professional, this is not a man in a van company and I would highly recommend them, thank you, such a great team!”

Ms Campbelltransport from Northampton, UK to Corfu, Greece April 2024

“This is our fourth or fifth time working with Nomad, Greece – UK, UK – Greece!

Our consignments have been of varying sizes, weights and volume! Absolutely nothing has been to much trouble, be it Takis and Kostas collecting and shipping to the UK or Dan and his team shipping it back to Greece.

Our belongings have been stored, customs cleared and delivered at fair costs, no quibbles or questions, losses or damage, you all get on with your jobs and provide excellent customer care, service and support.

We cannot recommend you all highly enough, you care and take the stress out of moving, so professional, accommodating and friendly.

Thank you all.”

Bee and Simon now back in the Mani Greece!! March 2024

“Good Morning,

Due to the professional assistance that Nomad International offered, my relocation experience was wonderfully stress-free.

A huge thank you to Takis and Christina for getting all my belongings transported from Greece to Spain.

I would definitely recommend Nomad International and wouldn’t hesitate to contact the company again when I need to relocate another time.

Very many thanks again.”

Gillian Arnold-Mitchelltransport from Greece to Spain 

“We used Nomad International in winter of 2023-2024 to transport household items–large furniture items and boxes–from USA to Crete, Greece. This was our first time engaging a company for an international removal, and at every turn Nomad impressed us. Our initial inquiry was met with a prompt and thoughtful response from Takis, who managed the process from start to finish, providing necessary guidance and consistent communication via email, phone, and text. Any time we had a question, Takis replied quickly with accurate information allowing us to proceed without delay. With his help we were able to schedule dates that were most convenient for us and to choose an appropriate container and accompanying insurance. Everything happened according to schedule, both on the sending and receiving end. It was obvious to us that our things were handled with great care. This experience was smoother than many intra-city moves I’ve made in the USA, to be honest! We’re very pleased with Nomad’s service and wouldn’t hesitate to employ them again. Nomad was recommended to us by multiple people, and I would highly recommend the company as well.”

Eriktransport from the USA to Crete, Greece 

“I checked Crete FB groups to see who people recommended for a move from Italy. When nearly everyone gets enthusiastic about the same company, it’s a good sign. And they were right.

From our first contact, Takis was the Rockstar of company management, professionalism, and kindness. Then, the guys that came to my home in Italy also did an amazing job. I was moving from a big house with lots of furniture including dozens of pieces of framed art, so I had them do all the wrapping and packing. (I thought the extra price was extremely reasonable, and I am so glad I did it.)

They moved it into storage for two months here in Chania until the house was ready, and we just did the big move. Right on time, extremely helpful, hard-working crew. They unwrapped the furniture, helping me set things up, and not one picture was harmed, not one piece of furniture scratched, nothing broken. I was so impressed.

Thank you guys. Great job, and I so appreciate everything you did, from the beginning to the end. You’re the best!”

Ms Robertstransport from Italy to Crete, Greece February 2024

“We have used Nomad to transport household contents on two occasions, once from Devon and once from central London. On both occasions the team who packed and collected arrived promptly and worked swiftly and efficiently to clear the property. Goods subsequently arrived in Greece on the planned day and were carried to their specific destinations. We were impressed, when unpacking, by the extreme care that had been taken to reduce the chance of damage.
On both occasions we were delighted with the service and courtesy we received and will certainly return to Nomad should we require further deliveries.”

Mr Rathborntransport from London, UK to Lefkada, Greece January 2024

“I’ve just completed a very successful move from the UK to the Peloponnese with Nomad.
I sold my house in June and they collected everything making a detailed inventory before taking it into their storage. They were very flexible as I waited for my build to be finished and were happy for me to add another item for transportation. Once transported to Greece my belongings were stored in Patras until I could accept delivery. All items and boxes were received in good condition and the team in Greece even managed to get a sofa bed to a difficult access mezzanine level.
Throughout it all Dan and the team in the UK, and Takis and his team in Greece, could not have been more helpful. I also felt the price was extremely fair – it would have cost significantly more to buy new furniture etc in Greece. I am very pleased I opted to move as much as I did rather than just the personal items.”

Ms Cornishtransport from Woodbridge, UK to Peloponnese, Greece December 2023

“I received an excellent service from Nomad International with special thanks to Michalis. They are a group of super professional and responsive team, that go the extra mile to accommodate their customers. For me, it was when I faced an unexpected issue and was not ready to receive my items as I initially planned. Really appreciated their support during those stressful times and highly recommend them to those who need a removal service.

Will be in touch for a quote when I am ready to bring my stuff to Greece from the UK.”

Nahzley Anvarian, Domestic removal in Greece from Thessaloniki to Athens, November 2023

“I would like to thank Nomad International Patra Greece, for the excellent service they provided in relocating my English car from Kefalonia Greece, back to the UK.
This was undertaken with great professionalism, care, and for me totally stress free. Thank you for an amazing job.”

Mrs Burketransport from Kefalonia, Greece to Morecambe, UK November 2023

We used Nomad to help move a large amount of furniture and valuables to Greece to our new home on the island of Andros. We decided to use Nomad and am extremely glad we did.  From arranging the pick up in Cambridge to the delivery in Greece the teams at both ends showed nothing but politeness, smiles and a can-do attitude.  Dan helped when I needed to add some more things (twice!).  When they remeasured the volume this was less than the original quote.  Since Brexit, moving has become for difficult but they handled the paperwork, leaving this stress free for us.

I really could not recommend them more to entrust your move.

Mr Warwicktransport from Cambridge, UK to Andros, Greece August 2023

“Recently we contacted Takis at Nomad International to enquire about transporting 4 large boxes of personal effects from our home in Greece to our daughter’s farm in England.
Takis reassured us that it was no problem and we would have no worries.
He was right. The boxes were collected from us very efficiently by the extremely pleasant Panos.
Throughout the transportation process every person involved represented Nomad to the highest standard.
We will certainly recommend your company from now on.
Thank you again”

Mrs Copetransport from Tolo, Greece to Surrey, UK October 2023

“We were fortunate to be able to spend almost 6 months of each year from 2009 until 2023 in Crete. (Apart from two Covid years, of course!)
Our removal from England in 2009 was expertly handled by Nomad, collecting our possessions in England and delivering them to our house in a Cretan village.
Fourteen years later, Nomad undertook our return to England, all with the same care, assistance and professionalism.
Both relocations came with their own, uniquely stressful situations, Nomad took what was potentially, one of the most stressful and managed it in detail for us.
Well done Nomad!
Your staff both in Peterborough and Xania, made the experience a whole lot easier for us!
Thank you!”

Mr Gregorytransport from Crete, Greece to Essex, UK September 2023

“I have used Nomad twice, first time was 2013 when me & my Husband moved to Crete and the 2nd time was July of this year 2023 when my mother came to live in Crete with us, on both occasions I have found Nomad to be friendly & reliable, both times they rang me to arrange a time for the goods to be collected and packed ready for shipment overseas. I was always informed as to when my goods would leave and arrive in Greece. Then they rang me to give a time of delivery to my home in Crete.
When they say door-to-door that’s what they mean. One of the employees even remembered me from 10 years ago. I would recommend Nomad to anyone moving to Greece.”

Mr & Mrs Boltontransport from Rochdale, UK to Crete, Greece August 2023

“Thankyou you all so much .. to your team in Crete, Mark and Spiros and your Peterborough team . We recently sold our house in Xirosterni near Vamos, after building it twenty years ago and Nomad were wonderful, taking all the stress out of moving our things back to the UK. Everything arrived in perfect condition and both men in different countries couldn’t have been friendlier.
Thankyou all so much    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️xxx”

Mr & Mrs Murraytransport from Crete, Greece to Peterborough, UK July 2023

“My wife and I had numerous personal belongings shipped via Container from Canada / Vancouver Island to Kostos, Paros Island, Kyklades. We decided to retain the services of Nomad International to deal with all further aspects of the shipment upon arrival at Piraeus Terminal. We were very happy with this decision, as Takis was a great help in preparing the arrival of the Container, dealing with the local Authorities and then transferring all items from Piraeus to Paros Island. Our home in Kostos is located within the alleyways of the traditional Village with no direct road access. Nomad arranged locally for a small Piaggio Transporter, which greatly helped moving items closer to our home. We do not want to miss to mention the moving staff, the 2 men did a great job under less than ideal conditions. In addition Takis did his best to keep the overall cost transparent and in check. We want to thank everyone again and we do not hesitate to recommend Nomad International to anyone contemplating removal to Greece”.

Trudy & Rolftransport from Vancouver, Canada to Paros, Greece July 2023

“Hi Dan , just to thank you for your excellent professional service.
The lads who delivered our quad today were brilliant, polite, professional and careful.
Thank you”

Mr Robinsontransport from Peterborough, UK to Zakynthos, Greece June 2023

“A HUGE thankyou to the team at Nomad Patra and Nomad Peterborough. Your company is absolutely brilliant I can’t thank you all enough for the way you handled our move from Skopelos Island Greece to Wales, it was professional to the letter with everything done on time removing all the stress from us.
A special thankyou to Tom who was prompt, polite and efficient in placing our shipment in our unit at Ruthn.

Keep up the good work, and I will definitely recommend your company to anyone relocating from abroad or within the UK.

All the best for the future”

Mr & Mrs McClellantransport from Skopelos, Greece to Wales, UK June 2023

“We could not recommend Nomad International highly enough. They safely, carefully and promptly transported all our belongings from the UK to Corfu. The service was highly professional and efficient and the staff (Dan, Takis and Costas) really helpful, courteous and respectful of our possessions throughout the whole process. (Even down the dirt track, that is our road and also the 4 lots of stairs to the property! ) If you are considering using Nomad no need to hesitate whatsoever …”

Mr & Mrs Kewtransport from Bristol, UK to Corfu, Greece May 2023

“We would like to thank your company for the absolutely superb service we received.
Our experience of dealing with Nomad International could not have been better. What could have been a stressful experience was made clear and easy due to the high level of experience and organisation by the team at Nomad.
From the initial contact through to the delivery at our home in Crete, the service we received from everyone involved was exemplary.”

Mrs Macnab-Starktransport from Kent, UK to Crete, Greece April 2023

“Hi Dan,

I used Nomad removals to ship my belongings to Kefalonia in Greece. With a complicated load, Nomad not only stepped up and provided a great service both here in England and in Greece, but they done it with both professionalism and friendliness.
Nothing was too much trouble and I cannot thank them enough.
Will be using them very soon again. Thank you Nomads 😊”

Mrs Tina Berrytransport from Essex, UK to Kefalonia, Greece April 2023

“Dear Takis, Kostas, Yianni, and Spiros,

We just wanted to thank you so much for the way you handled our internal home removal within Messinia today. Me and my husband were so impressed by your service; you came highly recommended by many friends who have used your services, and you didn’t disappoint. We especially appreciated the pre removal and assessment service, the politeness of all of your staff, your timekeeping, your friendly and reassuring tone, and the totally respectful and professional way in which you wrapped, handled and dealt with our possessions. Nothing was too much trouble, and there was no hint of a complaint from you, even regarding our slightly difficult access road, and wonky low doorframes! You made what could have been a stressful nightmare of a day, feel so much better, and for that, we are truly appreciative, thank you all.”

Mr & Mrs Tremarco, removal within Messinia, Greece, March 2023

“We sold our home in Greece in December 2021 and, on the recommendation of fellow Brits asked Nomad to collect our effects and prepare to ship them to U.K. We stayed on while we looked for a home in U.K. and eventually moved in January 2023. Nomad stored our goods for over a year and have just delivered them, in perfect condition, to our new home.

Our treatment by Nomad from the very outset was outstanding. Courteous, professional, accessible and supportive at all times both in Greece and U.K. There was no red tape, customs matters were dealt with extremely smoothly and our goods were delivered right on the date we were promised. We strongly recommend Nomad to anyone who may be moving in either direction between U.K. and Greece.”

Mr & Mrs Jonestransport from Andros, Greece to Abergavenny, UK February 2023

“Hello Dan,
We would like to thank you for all your help with our move to Crete. Everything went well in the U.K. and in Crete and would you please pass on our thanks to your teams at both ends of our journey. All your staff were very helpful and friendly and took all the stress out of what could have been a difficult time.
We have now unpacked all our boxes and everything arrived safely.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all your colleagues a happy new year”

Mr & Mrs Plattstransport from Huddersfield, UK to Crete, Greece January 2023

“I contacted Nomad International as we needed to send some furniture to Athens, Greece. We have sent by container previously, but it is a much more complicated procedure. Nomad, came and picked up our items, wrapped what needed wrapping and loaded on to their vehicle. What I really appreciated was the level of service before they even arrived. Making sure everything was right for us and that the vehicle they were coming in would be okay as a bit of a tight location. The paperwork this time was very simple to send things over to Greece.

1 month later our items arrived and again the level of service was second to none. Phoned us to ensure we were still okay for delivery on the chosen date, arrived with smiles and unloaded with smiles. Checked all paperwork and again was a painless process.

Thank you Nomad UK and Greek offices, we will use you now for all our shipments.”

Mrs Pricetransport from Kendal, UK to Athens, Greece December 2022

“Dear Dan,

I write to express huge thanks to yourself and all your team at Nomad, both in the UK as well as on Crete.
I thank you Dan for your excellent communication, attention to detail, great timings and efficiency at all stages of moving my belongings.
Special thanks also to Rob, Tom, Mark and Spiros who packed, loaded, delivered and unloaded all items with great care and consideration.
I shall certainly be highly recommending Nomad to anyone who needs a move in the future!

Kind Regards,”

Mrs Alatsaristransport from Reading, UK to Crete, Greece December 2022

“Hi Dan,

We had 12 boxes of valuable breakables to get from Stafford to Paxos (a small island just off Corfu).
I contacted Nomad and they were excellent right from the 1st call to delivery on time on the day confirmed.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and every time I asked a question they were back immediately.
I couldn’t recommend anybody more than Nomad if you want a similar (or larger) job doing!

Excellent, thank you to the UK & Greece Nomad teams”

Mr Knightontransport from Peterborough, UK to Paxos, Greece November 2022

“Dan .. hi

Have been meaning to write to commend your team, Rob and Tom, when they delivered our stuff from Greece some weeks ago.

They are extremely hard workers, pleasant, conscientious and their attention to detail was absolutely spot on.

Both Pete and I would like to thank you and your staff for such an organised and non hassle job. The guys worked extremely hard with a smile on their faces throughout and nothing was too much trouble.

Many thanks again and we would highly recommend you to others as you were to us.”

Mr & Mrs Cootsremoval from Paros, Greece to Exmouth, UK October 2022

“Dear Nomad,

Just wanted to say what a fabulous service you provide. We’d like to say a big thanks to Mark, Ian, Dan, Robert and anyone else at Nomad for safely delivering our rather heavy package. It was a pool table If you didn’t know!
Mark and Spiros couldn’t have been more helpful getting all 340ish kg off the truck and unpacked. Really, really appreciated!
A great bunch to do business with and I’m sure we will be calling on your services again, but nothing so heavy next time honest!

Thank you!!!!”

Mrs Pengilly, transport from Peterborough, UK to Crete, Greece October 2022

“Just had to write to you Dan and Takis to say how thrilled we are with the removal of all our furnishings from Greece to the UK and in the UK to our new home.

The Greece side were fabulous. Very professional and took extra care with all our belongings. Nothing was too much trouble. Very careful and considerate.

The UK side were fabulous too. All the unloading and placing where we asked and took extra care and attention with everything. The check list of items coming into the home was very thorough and well thought out.

Both the workers Rob and Tom didn’t stop. No breaks and nothing was too much trouble.

We have no hesitation in recommending Nomad to anybody, anywhere.

Kind regards,”

Mr & Mrs Miles, removal from Zante, Greece to Wales, UK October 2022

“I would like to thank Nomad particularly Michalis (Michael) for such excellent customer service! He could not do enough for us making the move from Greece to the UK. Michalis helped us with all the paperwork making it a very relaxing experience! Nomad came directly to our villa and collected all our boxes, so we did not have to deal with another company – sending all our parcels to Patras – and then shipping to the UK! Again, thanks so much Michalis (Michael) for all your help. We would not hesitate to recommend Nomad – and would recommend Nomad very highly for anyone on the move!

Mrs Megan, parcels from Kefalonia, Greece to UK October 2022

“Just to let you know that I am very pleased with Nomad services taking my belongings back to UK from Corfu Greece…everything was secure like first packed and will recommend to anybody wanting shipments made. Staff in Corfu very happy and efficient and staff in Uk who kept me informed, very pleasant and the delivery staff cheerful and all hard working…well recommended in every way.
Big thankyou to all
Kind regards”

Mrs Rawlinson, removal from Corfu, Greece to Essex, UK September 2022

“Dear Dan,

I would like to thank the whole Nomad team in Greece and the UK for your great service on our recent move back to the UK: excellent communications prior to the move and efficient, careful packing on the day; everything delivered intact on time at the other end. Seven years ago we used Nomad too and we would definitely use you again, should the need arise. Many thanks.”

Mr Bennet, removal from Athens, Greece to Sheffield, UK August 2022

“Dear Robert,

Nick has just delivered the boxes. I would like to thank Nomad International for exceptional service in the transport of our boxes from Chania to the UK. Every step of the process from initial contact with Amber to communication with you was excellent. I will recommend Nomad highly to anyone that asks. I would also like to thank you for recommending Nick. He is a very pleasant person to do business with, and I would also highly recommend him as well.

Kind regards,”

Mrs Dennis, parcels from Crete, Greece to Scotland, UK September 2022

“Hi Dan,
Hope you are well.
Thank you for your help with our move to Crete, it all went very smoothly and the Nomad team both in UK and Crete were very supportive. Nomad is fully recommended by us.
We are now in Crete and enjoying it.”

Mr & Mrs Rainford, removal from Peterborough, UK to Crete, Greece June 2022

“Dear Dan and the team,

I’m just writing to thank you and your entire team for your efficiency in both the collection of our items from storage in Kent and the delivery to us here in Crete.

Everything arrived promptly as it should, it was well packed and the guys here doing the delivery were amazing! We are on 2nd and 3rd floors and both John and Spyros must have been up and down the stairs over 50 times on each day. They were diligent in checking we had everything and that we were happy, and I can confirm it is all here in good order.

Thank you so much for making something that could easily have been very stressful completely trouble free. Kind regards”

Mrs Janette White, removal from Kent, UK to Crete, Greece August 2022

“Nomad International are unquestionably the most professional and the best value for money when it comes to international removals.
They specialize in transporting personal effects from the UK to Mediterranean countries, most notably Italy and Greece.
It is hard to imagine a better standard of service, attention to detail and concern for the specific needs of the customer from beginning to end with a personal touch throughout.
Their knowledge of the geographical locations to which they deliver is impressive; there is a ‘continuity’ among themselves as an international service with all the necessary local component companies with very detailed local knowledge. They do not ‘sub-contract’. This is their great competitive strength, they are ‘Nomad’ throughout the entire journey.

I would recommend their service without hesitation.”

Mr Nicholas Malaos, removal from London, UK to Agios Dimitrios, Greece August 2022

“Dear Takis,

I want to thank you and your team for your moving help from Germany to Greece.

The German team took its time to pack with care, and the Greek team unloaded everything professionally and quickly at my place in Greece. The service was efficient, and done with care, and everything was checked against the lost to make sure nothing was left behind.

Thank you also for arranging my car to be moved, and working with my local contacts so that I was able to relax while being abroad during the move.

I will certainly recommend Nomad for others who are looking to move to or from Greece.

All the best,”

Mrs Sarah Hawk, removal from Germany to Greece July 2022

“Hi Dan,
We would like to thank all concerned , Mark, Amber + Spiros in Chania and the guys at the UK end, especially Nick who brought our belongings up to Scotland following our move from Crete to the UK . Highly professional, everything was packed with care and the whole process from start to finish was flawless, everything arrived safely .

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nomad to anyone looking to relocate to Greece .

Thank you Dan also for your communications throughout and the extra mile at the end is much appreciated.”

Mr Colin Turvey, removal from Crete, Greece to Scotland June 2022

“Hello Dan,

I want to thank you for an absolutely perfect move to Kefalonia, from all the conversations with you prior to using your services, a very reasonable price & your great teams in the UK & Greece. All our furniture was carefully loaded & recorded ,we had two locations to pick up from, but this was not a problem, the items we hadn’t wrapped was taken care of & my classic motorbike was handled carefully & wrapped in blankets. You took care of all the customs problems that we had feared could be a problem. We had missed our first date due to a massive delay from DVLA getting me the logbook for the bike, but again this wasn’t a problem, you just stored it for us & put it on the next lorry.
When it had arrived in Greece, I was informed by your Greek colleague Takis & a few days before it was brought to the house, I was informed by Kostas that it would be with us shortly.
It all arrived spot on time & was all in perfect condition, it was taken to all the individual rooms & I ticked everything off as it was unloaded.
I will highly recommend you to anyone who asks & say that you are a very professional outfit who knows exactly what they are doing.”

Mr Allan Templar, removal from Barrowford, UK to Kefalonia, Greece June 2022

“Hi Dan,
I just wanted to express my very sincere thanks to you and all your team for yet another excellent job. My goods arrived delivered by Kostas. He and his guys were absolutely first rate. Everything had been carefully packaged and the delivery was on time and very efficiently handled.
Your company comes highly recommended by several of the estate agents here on Kefalonia and if anyone asks me I always tell people you are the best company I have dealt with regarding moving furniture and other goods from the UK to Greece.
Thank you once again, and I guarantee I will always recommend you to anybody that asks about needing their items moved from the UK to Greece and vice versa.

Thank you once again!”

Mr David Green, removal from Bexhill, UK to Kefalonia, Greece May 2022

“Nomad International has far exceeded all my expectations. From Dan’s availability to answer all my innumerable questions to the precise date and time of delivery. All issues regarding customs and bureaucracy ( which are usually a gruelling process ) felt as easy as pie thanks to Dan’s experience and savvy. I would like to take this opportunity to highly and unhesitatingly recommend Nomad International for moves, both partial and full, storage and delivery of goods. All of our belongings arrived in perfect order with absolutely everything intact. The move started in Bristol, UK and ended in Athens, Greece. The patience, professionalism also of Taki in Greece and the ability of both Dan and Taki to reassure their clients make Nomad International the ONLY Choice for a move from the UK to Greece and vice versa. A special thanks also to, Spyros Yiannis and Kostas who delivered our belongings straight into our apartment in Athens.
Thank you.”

Mrs Patrikia Green, removal from Bristol, UK to Athens, Greece May 2022

“Dear Dan and Takis,

We just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing job you and your team did for us moving our possessions to Greece. Honestly it was the best customer service I can remember and faultless from beginning to end. You were really clear and efficient every stage of the way and what could have been a really stressful process was a pleasure. Thank you SO much! We will be back again for sure and highly recommend you.”

Mrs Cath Kidston, removal from Gloucester, UK to Spetses, Greece May 2022

“Dear Dan,
I just wanted to thank you and your team for doing such a grand job bringing our stuff back from Greece. Everything went like clockwork, exactly as and when arranged and all in perfect order. Takis in Patras was also very helpful and answered my endless questions cheerfully.

I was particularly impressed with your system using numbered and named stickers on the boxes and then logged on the sheets, so that everyone could be sure all boxes had been delivered. Having used other companies in the UK who didn’t have such a system, it is very upsetting to find the odd box or item is missing and no way of proving it. Your team in the UK found us here in the wilds of north Devon easily – something beyond many delivery drivers!
It was very good value and I shall be very happily recommending Nomad to all my ex-pat friends in the Mani.
With many thanks,”

Mrs Pratt, removal from Kalamata, Greece to Devon, UK April 2022

“Hi Takis
Just to say thank you for organizing the removals so efficiently from France to Kefalonia .
Your guys were very helpful on the day and I managed to get nearly everything stored with their help!
I will be recommending your company to anyone who needs items transporting!!
Many thanks again!”

Katy, removal from France to Kefalonia, Greece April 2022

“We used Nomad to move our belongings from our house in Skiathos back to the UK. Despite some challenges with access to the property, Spiros and Kostas were very professional, friendly and efficient. The communication from Nomad throughout the process has been excellent and we would highly recommend their services”

Mr Fowler, removal from Skiathos, Greece to Peterborough, UK April 2022

“Dear Dan and Team,                                                      

Moving ………It is a stressful thing moving from the UK to Greece, and we are so glad we found Nomad to help us.  Nomad took all the stress away.

After a telephone call and then email detailing the size of our move, Nomad provided us the most competitive quote of all in a very timely manner.

We packed most of the items ourselves but Nomad’s UK team provided us with assistance expertly packing the more tricky and fragile items, such as paintings and mirrors that required expertise and materials that we did not posses to ensure a safe transit. They even repacked a few boxes we had packed badly, to ensure they arrived safely, very impressive!

The communication was great with Dan keeping us informed on the UK collection date and also the expected delivery date in Greece. Once everything arrived in Patras and the load had cleared customs, Takis took over and gave us an exact date and time for delivery. He arrived 30 mins early!! and quickly unloaded everything and carried the boxes into the right rooms for us. He also went through the consignment note and we counted boxes together to make sure everything had arrived.

All in all I would highly recommend Nomad.  Thank you to all the Nomad Team.”

Mr Fraser, removal from Surrey, UK to Peloponnese, Greece April 2022

“We have used Nomad twice now to transport belongings to our house in Greece. Both times the service has been exemplary from start to finish.
Dealings with the office are always pleasant, prompt and efficient. The collection team are friendly and could not be more helpful, as are the delivery team in Greece. Where our goods arrived exactly on schedule, in perfect condition. We cannot imagine how anyone could do this better.”

Mr & Mrs Tucker, removal from Surrey, UK to Peloponnese, Greece April 2022

“We just completed a complex move from the South of France to Corfu with Nomad international. We had 60cubic meters of general household furniture and items and several motorbikes, and the pick-up in France went very well , no issues all on time and in order.
The truck was packed carefully and professionally and 2 days later the truck arrived in Corfu, where all items had to be transferred to smaller vans due to restricted road access. Again the transfer to smaller vans went without a hitch. There was no damage to any of the items.

The communications was excellent throughout the process. The price was competitive and it all went very well without any stress.

I recommend Nomad for any international haulage for house removals. Thank you to the hardworking and very friendly and helpful team, as it could not have gone any better!”

Mr Morten Thomsen, removal from France to Corfu, Greece, UK February 2022

“Communication with Takis was brilliant from the outset with total flexibility shown as I could not finally confirm the move date until the house sale was complete. The excellent communication continued with messages and phone calls right up to the day of moving.

Spiros and Kostas packed professionally and quickly and completed the job in half the time we had anticipated. We received an inventory by email almost immediately.

I really can’t fault the whole service as well as the courtesy and good humour which Kostas and Spiros showed whilst undertaking pretty demanding work. First class service highly recommended.”

Mr Bill Flatue, removal from Corfu, Greece to Peterborough, UK March 2022

“We have recently moved from Murcia, Spain to Kos, Greece and used Nomad to transport our household items and our car.
The employees who collected these items were polite and very efficient, as were those who ultimately delivered them to us.
Our contact throughout was Takis, an extremely helpful and diligent person who has continued to assist us with information required to re-plate the car. He has certainly gone above and beyond what could be expected of him.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Nomad to anyone who requires a professional removal company at a reasonable cost.”

Mr & Mrs Prandle, removal from Murcia, Spain to KOS, Greece December 2021

“I would like to say a huge thank you to Dan and all the Nomad team (both in the UK and in Greece) for your expert help and advice, and for coping so admirably with the ever changing challenges brought by Brexit and Covid. Your professionalism and calm, friendly guidance made the whole international removal experience much easier than anticipated. Thank you!”

Jill, removal from Northampton, UK to Patra, Greece February 2022

“We would like to thank Dan, Takis and both the UK and Greek Nomad teams for making our move so efficient, smooth and stress free. We were extremely apprehensive about our relocation from London to Chalkidiki during the pandemic and so soon after the new Brexit customs changes that came into effect on 1 January 2022.
Dan answered all our queries and addressed all our concerns (which were many!) responded with sound advice, support and more than anything eased all our stresses with his knowledge and experience. We received equally high standard customer service from Takis once our stuff arrived in Greece, and the delivery was prompt, fast, skilled, effective and courteous.
There is no doubt that we would recommend Nomad to all our friends, whether they are moving from the UK or within Greece!
Once again thank you Nomad International Ltd.”

Ms Avdi, removal from London, UK to Chalkidiki, Greece February 2022

“Goods collected from our boat in Crete and brought back to UK. We have moved 38 times, used alot of removal firms including some of the big boys, but out of them all NOMAD have been BRILLIANT! Staff both in Crete and back in the UK were so helpful and when they say they will do something its done! Packing was done really well and we cant recommend them enough! THANKS GUYS”

Mr & Mrs Tarrant, removal from Crete, Greece to Peterborough, UK January 2022

“Good Morning Dan,

After deciding to sell our home in Evia Greece, we needed a moving company to return our belongings to the UK. A friend recommended Nomad to us and both the collection and delivery of our items was super efficient. The teams arrived on time and everything was handled with care. Thank you for making the whole process easy and stress free. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nomad International. Once again many thanks to Dan, Takis and all the team!

Kind regards,”

Mrs Angelis, removal from Evia, Greece to Essex, UK December 2021

“I’d just like to express our sincere thanks to all the people at NOMAD International who helped us with our recent move to Crete in October 2021. Having bought our house in Lasithi in the period immediately before Covid lockdowns and widespread restrictions, we were still unsure about organising a full-scale removal until Summer 2021. That’s when we contacted NOMAD and we were very appreciative of the information given to us about what our move might entail. We received a very good overview from NOMAD regarding the paperwork and customs/insurance admin and so were able to finalise the date to move to Crete, planned while we were back in UK.
Dan at NOMAD was very supportive and dealt with all sorts of queries in quite difficult circumstances. We were very pleased with the communication regarding the collection of our household items in late September. The removal team (2 x Ian and Charlie) from Peterborough was very efficient and reassuring about our treasured possessions! We were able to plan our return to Crete to prepare for the delivery and we were kept well-informed of progress and delivery dates. Spiros and Mark were very efficient and helpful on the day. Everything was in absolutely perfect condition and, understandably, we are extremely happy to recommend NOMAD to anyone who is planning a move to Crete. Thank you all once again!”

Mark and Anca, removal from Uttoxeter, UK to Crete, Greece October 2021

“Dear Takis.
We cannot thank you enough for the efficient and speedy packing of our household effects, which consisted of furniture, equipment , crockery, glassware , clothing and many other and varied items.
Kostas and Spiros worked continuously with very little break. Their attention to detail in Jiffy wrapping every single item was very impressive and all achieved with good humour. It has been a pleasure knowing them.
We have been packed up for moving a few times in the UK, but this one has been by far the best and we have no problem in recommending Nomad to anyone.
Your help and “no problem” attitude with us has also been a great help over what could have been a stressful time. Very many thanks, Best wishes”

Mr & Mrs Doyne, removal from Corfu, Greece to Cornwall, UK November 2021

“Dear Takis

I am writing to confirm that my Mercedes has safely arrived back into UK from Greece. I should like to thank you all at Nomad for your help.

Not only did you talk me through all the possible complications but you provided an excellent service from collecting the car from the ferry at Igoumenitsa to delivering it safely to my UK address, including a last-minute change of delivery address in UK.

You and your guys were brilliant. Thank you. If I ever need transport in Europe again, Nomad will be first choice….

Best wishes”

Mr Golton, car transport from Greece to the UK October 2021

“Hi Dan, I would like to thank you and the whole Nomad team once again for taking such good care of my shipping from Rhodes to the UK this summer. The whole process was made so easy for me – from booking to collection to delivery. Your communications and advice are excellent, your teams are so supportive – I would particularly like to mention Takis in Greece, who couldn’t have been more helpful. Making the move back to the UK on my own could have been so difficult if it wasn’t for your fantastic company and the way you assisted me throughout. I took delivery of my shipment at home – received on time and delivered with a smile by Charlie. Nomad has made the whole process so easy for me and I will continue to recommend you to everyone who is looking for assistance with shipping. Thank you all again so very much. You really are the best.”

Ms Mullarkey, removal from Rhodes, Greece to Alfreton, UK October 2021

Just a big thank you, to you, your team in the UK, Takis and his team here in Greece. Our belongings arrived this afternoon including the piano. Nomad are a truly professional team delivering what they promise. There is one happy family here on the island especially now we have our belongings. Once again many thanks.
Best wishes,”

Mr Tyrrell, removal from Gloucestershire, UK to Alonissos, Greece October 2021

“A big thank you for Dan, Charlie, Takis and the team at NOMAD for a seamless move of 48 parcels from Oundle to Parga in September 21.
A really professional service throughout and Takis even delivered our packages on a Sunday. We would thoroughly recommend NOMAD as a great company with strong customer focused ethos.”

Mr & Mrs New, removal from Oundle, UK to Parga, Greece September 2021

“Hi Dan

It’s been a tough time for us at Chimney farm dog rescue. The increased cost of getting our dog travel crates out to Crete has increased 3 fold since leaving the EU. Awe have had them destroyed as the import duty was so extortionate and were having to buy new ones each time we rescued a dog.
We spoke to NOMAD International who offered us the most amazing solution and took 27 crates to Crete saving our charity around £1200. We were overwhelmed at how efficient and helpful the team were and this means 27 dogs can now leave the shelter and come to their forever homes in the U.K.”

Ms Ali Woods, removal from Peterborough, UK to Crete, Greece September 2021

“Good afternoon Dan

I wanted to write to you to thank you for your assistance in getting our goods shipped and transported to Greece. We were very pleased with your service and the gentlemen who delivered the goods to our house were very professional and extremely pleasant and helpful. Everything was in order. If we need to ship any further goods to the Mani we will certainly use you again. We will also recommend you to people in Greece.

Kind regards”

Mrs De Veulle-Filleul, removal from West Sussex, UK to Peloponnese, Greece August 2021

“Hi Dan,

Thanks once again for the whole service you provided, you have all been wonderful from start to finish.
I’m particularly grateful that each one of you I’ve spoken to throughout, has been simply a decent human being, more than willing to help me find solutions to the various issues I’ve faced along the way. Invaluable!

All the best”

Mrs Cowan-Mytilinaiou, removal from Spetses, Greece to Peterborough, UK August 2021

“Hi Dan,

I would like to thank you very much for the extremely efficient service that you provided recently, in transporting my goods from the UK to the Peloponnese in Greece.
Excellent communication throughout (in the UK and also from your team in Greece) and everything arrived on time and in perfect condition.
I will definitely be using Nomad again in the future.”

Mr Sladden, removal from Ely, UK to Kilada, Greece July 2021

“Hi Dan,

Just a note to say the guys were really great on the first drop , truly professional and worked extremely hard.

I have received the remainder of our furniture today…once again I must praise your service, from start to finish it has been a truly exceptional service, everything has arrived and not a single item has suffered. The guys at both ends have been superb and I will be recommending yourselves to any other prospective client.”

Mr & Mrs Waller, removal from Warwick, UK to Crete, Greece July 2021

“Hi Dan,

We just wanted to say a big thank you to all concerned, it all went so efficiently, and all your staff were marvellous. All of them were considerate and friendly, we couldn’t have asked for more.

100 percent satisfaction!

If we ever need anything else delivering, we will be in touch!”

Mr & Mrs Redmond, removal from Shrewsbury, UK to Kefalonia, Greece June 2021

“Dear Dan (UK) and Takis ( GR),

Just a word to say how grateful we are for the terrific service you have offered us. From collecting and storing our goods ready for shipment, to the final delivery here in Greece, the whole process was hassle free, efficient and on time.
All of our worries and niggly questions ( Brexit stuff ) were answered and we never felt that our requests were too much trouble. Delivery in Greece was on time and our heavy items were carefully placed where we wanted.

Nomad, you are a first class service and we will not hesitate to recommend you. Good luck.”

Mr Tsiantar, removal from Peterborough, UK to Patra, Greece June 2021

“Hi Dan,

I wanted to drop you this email to say thank you so much for all your support and help, I have received today all my boxes, everything arrived in perfect conditions, the way all my belonging were packed was great, also your team in Greece were very professional and helpful all the way.

Can’t thank you enough and for sure if I will need to move some extra stuff I will request your service.”

Mrs Diaz, removal from Richmond, UK to Athens, Greece May 2021

“Good afternoon Dan,

I wanted to let you know that your team was excellent and very helpful. I also wanted to say that both UK and Greek teams are amazing and have provided an outstanding service. They were all very professional, friendly and accommodating to our needs.

The packaging of my mum’s belongings is of a high standard and everything that we’ve unpacked is in pristine condition, as if it was packed yesterday!!! Having done 3 other moves for my brother with another company, I can see the vast difference in care and way of packing that has resulted in such a fantastic move.

I’m grateful to have discovered you and would not hesitate to recommend you or use you again if I need to in the future.”

Mrs Gourmos, removal from Athens, Greece to Hertford, UK April 2021

“Nomad International assisted us in door to door packaging and transporting of our valuable items (furniture, mirrors, paintings etc) from Athens to Sandy, UK. All interactions and communications with the company were smooth, timely and efficient. The items arrived in excellent condition and the staff handled the goods/fragile items with extreme care. Very good experience, we highly recommend their services.”

Mr & Mrs Gupta, removal from Athens, Greece to Sandy, UK April 2021

“Good morning Dan.
My husband and I would just like to thank you and the company so very much for delivering our belongings safely to Crete for us.
We have nothing but praise for you all in Peterborough and the team here on Crete that delivered our belongings to us on what must have been one of the wettest days so far of the year.. they delivered with great professionalism and humour.. even though rather wet..
We thank you for all the post Brexit paperwork that you had to sort out for us before delivery..
To us in Crete it all went very smoothly., to which we thank you very much..
Also to say that you packed our much loved “Angus’ our stags head so very well, after finding out that he would be allowed into Greece.. a big relief for us..
Many thanks once again..
From two very happy folk now residing on this fabulous sunshine island.. Kind regards”


Mr & Mrs Cookson, removal from Peterborough, UK to Crete, Greece, March 2021

“We own a house in Crete. However, we have rented a house in England early in 2021 and wanted to take some furniture and personal possessions.

We contacted Nomad and found the service excellent despite the organisational difficulties Brexit had created. Our thanks to Dan and support staff at Peterborough, Mark who collected items in Crete and Charlie who delivered them in England. We will undoubtedly use Nomad again.”

Mr & Mrs Richmond, removal from Crete, Greece to Suffolk, UK, February 2021

“We would highly recommend Nomad’s services. We have used the company on two occasions: in 2017 and in 2021. After the successful completion of our first stone villa in Crete, we needed to ship all the furniture and various household items from London to the villa in Crete. We used Nomad and were very impressed with the services provided. The shipment arrived on time, all the items were in good condition and there is was no damage whatsoever. The delivery was very well organised and co-ordinated at both ends: in London and in Crete. After the successful completion of our second stone villa in 2021, we used Nomad’s services again as we shipped all the furniture and household items from London to Crete with them. The shipment again was very well organised and the delivery service was excellent considering the current difficult situation with the Brexit, Covid etc.

We would like to use this occasion and to thank Dan, Mark and the whole team involved in the delivery. We would highly recommend Nomad’s services to anybody in need of similar services.”

Mr & Mrs Stoev, removal from Essex, UK to Crete, Greece, February 2021

“We recently moved from the UK to Crete, somehow managing to do it in the middle of a pandemic. When I first started looking around for international removals a year or so ago, Nomad came up time and time again as a recommendation. Having now completed a move using their services, I can see why. I am told that there are cheaper options, but firmly believe that you get what you pay for. The teams in the UK and in Crete were fantastic. Despite the challenges of working during lockdown, Daz and Dan in the UK office were always just an email or a phone call away, and extremely patient with my (many) questions. The teams who picked up in the UK and delivered in Crete were wonderful, and everything went as smoothly as anyone could have wished. Highly recommended.”

Mr Clements removal from Kent, UK to Crete, Greece, September 2020

“Hi Daz,
Just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic service we have received with our shipment to Greece. All received and we are very happy. As first time movers abroad we were very nervous about everything and Nomad made the whole process from start to finish so simple. They are professional, reliable and go over and above to make the move as smooth as possible. Great Company and we will not hesitate to recommend you”

Mr & Mrs Bradford removal from Surrey, UK to Stoupa, Greece, August 2020

“I have used Nomad international for many years moving between my house in Methoni in Greece and my house in UK.
Their service has been unsurpassed , totally reliable and all the staff willing to help in anyway necessary .
So this year having finally sold my UK house , in the time of Covid 19 and all its restrictions, we , my son and I turned again to Nomad having decided that a final move , a total relocation to Greece from Cornwall had to be undertaken. We packed up all our belongings , a whole life time of acquired stuff, a whole house full plus my sons dingy , boat engine and boat building tools .
Nomad took charge of everything. They packed and loaded with great care and good humour. Real professionals who understand the stresses of their customers in times of huge change and upheaval.
The job was completed in the given time and the given quote. We are hugely grateful to them all, both the team in UK and the team in Greece and would highly recommend them to everyone who is considering such a move. “

Sally, Removal from Cornwall, UK to Methoni, Greece, July 2020

“At the end of June we entrusted my mum’s home in the UK into the care of your fabulous team to ship everything she needed over to her new home in Kefalonia.

This was a pretty stressful time for us – mum had moved over rather suddenly during lockdown and myself and my brother had been left with the unenviable task of working out what she needed there, packing it up and getting it to her. But with the intervention of your fabulous team in the office, at mums house and at the other side on the island, everything went smoothly.

I’ve just arrived for a visit to Mums new home on Kefalonia and she is so delighted to be surrounded with all her own things, it what really makes it home now. Not a single item was damaged or broken, everything was handled professionally but with a personal touch (even considering the restrictions of the coronavirus and social distancing!) and we couldn’t be happier with the service Nomad provided.

We would happily recommend your services to anyone needing to relocate their goods abroad and can’t thank you enough for everything you did to help us with the move and help mum settle in to her new home.

Thank you once again”

Mrs Warren, Removal from Wakefield, UK to Kefalonia, Greece, June 2020

“The island of Thassos in the Aegean Sea is a little bit off the beaten track in Greece but that did not deter Nomad from coming to my rescue.

Dan Baldwin was incredibly helpful in organising the removal of my possessions and answering all my queries with patience and humour.

Takis and his assistant, Sotiris, came to Thassos to do the collection. They were very professional but friendly and fast.

Ian and Jock transported my things to Cornwall band my daughter, who was on site to take the delivery, texted me to say “All in, awesome service”

I would wholeheartedly recommend Nomad. They obviously have brilliant teams both in Greece and the UK and I found their charges to be very fair.

A big, big thank you to all concerned.”

Mrs Owen, Removal from Thassos, Greece to Cornwall, UK, June 2020

“Hi Daz,

Despite difficult circumstances, our furniture and household belongings arrived here safely on Thursday 14/5/20.

We just wanted to say a big thank you to you, Ian and Charlie who wrapped and collected our items, and for Takis who delivered them to Lesvos. Takis was brilliant, helping us to unpack and even helped us put together our bedstead.

We bought over fragile family heirlooms and two large mirrors which all got here in tact.

We were very impressed with the door to door service and would definitely recommend Nomad to friends.

Thanks again”

Mr & Mrs Horlock, Removal from Surrey, UK to Lesvos, Greece, April 2020

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for the fantastic service you have provided for us recently. Danny, Daz and Takis have been absolutely amazing in providing the lifeline for me here in Kefalonia, and not forgetting how unbelievably quick my box arrived here, thank you so much. I will definitely use Nomad International again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in the future.

Thank you all so much again for everything, I am so glad I found such a professional reliable approachable company to help with deliveries.”

Mrs Jordan, Parcel from Peterborough, UK to Kefalonia, Greece, April 2020


I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for your excellent service that I received from day one till the day our furniture arrived here in Crete. You are friendly and very professional and it’s rare these days to encounter such excellent service. I would especially like to thank Daniel in UK and Mark here in Crete.
I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone.
Congratulations on a job well done.”

Mrs Armitage, Removal from Liverpool, UK to Crete, Greece, February 2020

“Hi Dan
I just wanted to say a big thank you to all at Nomad for the safe removal and delivery of our belongings from Crete to Scotland.
With no exceptions everyone we have dealt with at Nomad have been kind, courteous and professional.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Nomad. Once again many thanks Dan.”

Mr & Mrs Green, Removal from Crete, Greece to Scotland, February 2020

“We would highly recommend the Nomad International team both in the UK and Crete.
From the packing up of our things to the time in storage and finally the safe delivery to Crete. Everything was carried out in a highly efficient and professional manner. Ensuring the move was as stress free as possible.”

Mr & Mrs Cooney, Removal from Otley, UK to Crete, Greece, June 2019

“Good morning Dan,

Just wanted to let you know that our goods arrived safely here in Leek. What a brilliant service you offer! Should we ever need to, we shall certainly use your company again and will recommend you to our family and friends.
Once again, many thanks and we wish you the very best for the future.”

Mrs Grinham, Removal from Kefalonia, Greece to Leek, UK, October 2019

“We had been investigating international removal companies for around two years prior to our move and one name kept appearing as the best – ‘Nomad’. From our initial contact, Nomad were always professional and timely in their responses. When we were finally ready to make our move, we had no doubts that we had chosen the right company. At the UK side, it was so easy being able to have our new furniture delivered direct to your depot. The collection of our possessions from our UK address was seamless with a professional and friendly team. Our friends who took delivery of our furniture confirmed everything went extremely smoothly at the Greek end. We have now unpacked everything and all is there without any breakages. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone. I cannot thank them enough and would definitely use them again.”

Mrs Anderson, Removal from Wakefield, UK to Skiathos, Greece, October 2019

“Hello Dan,

Just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for the delivery to Kefalonia and everything turned up safe and sound.

You may remember that we started packing many months before the actual collection day and felt that all the items were well packed. We received a call early on the morning of the collection, in the UK, from your guys, just before they left your depot asking what kind of items were being shipped, so they could bring any necessary extra packaging.

On their arrival they very diplomatically suggested that some of the items did not have sufficient packing and if we didn’t mind, they would repack about 10%. As they had the expertise, we happily followed their advice. All the packages were listed / numbered and we were quite surprised when the number reached just under 80!! All were quickly loaded on to the van and disappeared in to a wet, windy and dark afternoon.

After a few weeks we flew out to Kefalonia and just before the pre-arranged delivery day we received a call from your guys in Greece informing us that they were coming over to the island. As its almost impossible to find our Villa we agreed to meet at the village shop and we could show them the way. Again, on the delivery day we received a call saying they were at the shop so we dashed up and they followed us back. You cannot imagine the black sky and lighting storm that was occurring all around us as we arrived back at the Villa and the speed your guys practically ran at to unload before a curtain of rain arrived.

It took us a few weeks to unpack everything and find homes, but we can confirm that nothing had been damaged or broken, a true testament to your collection guys advice and the general handling by all your team.

From our initial phone call to the final delivery you’ve all been total professionals, keeping us informed every step of the way. We shall definitely call you when we require our next delivery.”

Mr & Mrs Ling, Removal from Maidstone, UK to Kefalonia, Greece, October 2019

“The mere fact that your company exists, and is so helpful, makes me feel that moving to Crete is actually a sane thing to do.”

Lisa Orlando, Assistance with Request to Send Items to Crete, Greece, October 2019

Equipment worth almost £700,000 becomes Nomad’s highest-value corporate move ever.

Nomad International has completed the move of a research laboratory from Oxford to the Greek island of Crete this month.

When Powertrib, a leading consultancy in the field of tribology (the study of friction and lubrication) decided to relocate their laboratory to eastern Crete, they chose Nomad International for the move.

Originally planning a dedicated Nomad vehicle for the journey, we calculated that we would be able to save the client a lot of money by allocating space on one of our regular vehicles instead.  Since the departure and arrival timings were suitable and sufficient space was available for to carefully load the delicate equipment, it made perfect sense to conduct the removal this way.

With an insurance value of almost £700,000 the equipment is the highest value consignment Nomad has moved to date.

The highly precise equipment had to be handled extremely carefully, and Nomad’s team were up to the task.  The most delicate instruments have their own travel cases so no special packing was required, but they needed to be handled with the utmost care and attention throughout the move.

Transporting delicate equipment to Greece

The international vehicle used for the journey was one of Nomad’s 3,300cft removal trailers with air-ride suspension, pulled by Nomad’s new Euro 6 DAF XF truck.  On collection in Oxford we were able to get this vehicle right onto the site, with enough space to use the tail lift of another Nomad truck to carefully lift everything into place.

Laboratory removal from Oxford to Greece

Crete is a different story of course, and we faced the all-too familiar problem of difficult access to the delivery location, which is in one of the most remote parts of the island (surely one of the most remote places in all of Europe).  Unfazed by the challenge, the Nomad team used a series of shuttle vans to carefully transport each item to its new home.

Removals to remote locations in Greece

We had to park on a main road nearby and shuttle each item to its new home


As usual, everything went well and the client was very pleased with the move.

If you are looking to transport delicate, unusual, antique or expensive items to or from Greece, Nomad is the ideal company to use.  Just give us a call or send us an email to [email protected], we are always happy to help.

“Good Afternoon Dan

Just wanted to touch base to say thank you for the service we have received from yourselves. It’s been great from Takis and Kostas in Greece on collection to Charlie and Ian here on delivery, a very friendly reliable service and we would certainly recommend you to anyone considering a move.

Thanks for everything”

Mr & Mrs Banks, Removal from Paros Island, Greece to Lincolnshire, UK, June 2019

The Greek government has provided heartening guidance for British people living in Greece or planning to move to Greece, who may be concerned about the impact of Brexit.  On a dedicated website dealing with Brexit in Greece ( the government lays out detailed guidance on what British people can expect in each Brexit scenario.

In all scenarios British people can happily move to and settle in Greece, even in the event of a “no deal” Brexit.

The government has announced a “grace period” lasting until 31st December 2020, during which UK citizens will be able to register and stay permanently in Greece, regardless of whether they arrived before or after the UK’s exit from the EU.

The scenario receiving most media attention at the moment the supposed “no deal” exit.  The Greek government’s exact wording in relation to this scenario, for people who arrive in Greece after the exit date, are:

“UK citizens and their family members entering the country and wishing to stay in Greece after the withdrawal date, will also enjoy a grace period, from withdrawal date until the 31 December 2020, during which they will have the opportunity to register and stay, also according to the rules in force before the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.”

The very helpful website covers a number of other scenarios and provides comfort for British emigrants to Greece, whatever their current status.  For those who are already in Greece but have not yet registered themselves as such, the same grace period will also apply, so they will be able to register and stay permanently in the country.

The website has a helpful Q&A section which answers specific questions relating to work permits, travel arrangements and healthcare.  The overall theme of the content is that the Greek government is trying to make everything as easy as possible for UK citizens.

With the UK parliament deadlocked and both sides threatening to bring down the government, there is an increasing likelihood that Brexit will not happen at all.  But if the UK does leave the EU, even without a deal, it is very heartening to know that UK citizens will be welcome in Greece.

One might even wonder if some British citizens who had not yet considered moving to Greece would, in the event of a disastrous Brexit outcome, find themselves moving to a beautiful Greek island to escape the mess back home.

“I have no hesitation in recommending Nomad International for their removal services. From the early stages of planning and requesting information to the actual delivery itself, the staff were helpful, courteous and competent. Correspondence was dealt with promptly and all the necessary information and details were provided. At the points of collection and delivery the service provided could not be faulted – the removal staff worked hard to ensure that everything ran smoothly and in a timely manner and were friendly and helpful. Overall the company made the whole experience as trouble-free and efficient as possible and I would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending their services.”

Mrs Kalamboukis, Removal from Melton Mowbray, UK to Andros, Greece, March 2019

“From the first contact to the last delivery Nomad have been exemplary. They have been helpful, efficient and very pleasant to deal with. We will continue to use them”

Mr & Mrs Badowski, Removal from London, UK to Crete, Greece, January & July 2019

“Hi Dan,

Wanted to let you know our stuff arrived yesterday; Takis and Kostas were a great couple of guys, very professional. Very impressed with the service, and everything we have unpacked so far has arrived in the condition it left us ?

We would have no hesitation in using Nomad again, or in recommending them for a removal to Greece. Thanks again guys!”

Mr & Mrs Taylor, Removal from Ledbury, UK to Skopelos, Greece, June 2019

“Dear Dan and Daz,

I have been meaning to drop you an email for the last week or so since we took delivery of the 250 boxes of “stuff” in Paxos.
I can’t tell you what a difference your brilliant and professional service has made to our whole experience of trying to build and kit out a house in another country.
From start to finish, you have all been so easy to deal with and so accommodating. It really has been seamless which is astonishing given the amount of stuff we ended up sending out to a destination that is by no means easy to get to (plus us living in London).
It has been a real pleasure to deal with everyone. And to top it all, everything arrived in perfect condition – only two very small breakages which were the fault of the suppliers and nothing at all to do with Nomad.
I am very happy to recommend you to anyone thinking of a move. Thank you both again, and please pass on my thanks to all the team.”

Mrs Monks, Removal from Peterborough, UK to Paxos, Greece, June 2019

“Hi Dan

Just to say everything arrived in Meganisi just fine !

The 2 guys were a delight ! Very helpful and friendly !

Fab service … thank you”

Mrs Kelly, Removal from Glossop, UK to Meganisi, Greece, May 2019

“Selling a home, buying another one abroad and then shipping your possessions to another country to start a new life is a trying time to put it mildly. We were recommended to use Nomad by someone already living in Crete. A recommendation we were very glad we took up. From start to finish, the whole process was effortless, and nothing was too much trouble. We had a delay on completing on our new home and Nomad stored our belongings for three months without any query. They also packed everything for us and upon receipt of it in our new home in Crete, every single item down to the last wine glass was in perfect condition.

We understood the entire process of timings, delivery and expense so we knew exactly what was happening at any given time. Not bad given the journey it had been on!

In summary, we were delighted with the professional service of the whole team, both in the UK and in Crete and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone enquiring.”

Mr Read, Removal from March, UK to Crete, Greece

“Well Done Nomad!

So happy with the service from these guys who went out of their way to gather together all sorts of stuff for us (over several months) from major stores through to antique shops and send it all through to us in Kefalonia without a hitch.
A big thank you to Dan and Daz in the office and also to Dave the driver and his 2 helpers Kostas and Takis! And anyone behind the scenes who we may have omitted.

Its so good to be able to say nice things about service and these guys were fantastic.

Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”

Mr & Mrs O’Brien, Removal from Peterborough, UK to Kefalonia, Greece, January 2019

“Dear Dan,

I have nothing but praise for the service provided by Nomad during my recent move from Crete to the UK. They collected on the agreed date and delivered bang on time to my new house in Scotland. I had a very tight schedule for delivery but it went according to plan. I was delighted.”

Mrs Newton, Removal from Crete to Scotland, December 2018

“Based on our personal experience of four years using Nomad International we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wishing to move items between the UK and Crete. As we found, every booking is treated with the same care and attention be it a small box of groceries or the transfer of a complete household. Their teams in England and Crete are knowledgeable, professional, and they will always go the extra mile to be as helpful as possible.”

Mr & Mrs Walsh, Removal from Crete, Greece to Peterborough, December 2018

“What a service!”
You came as recommended by our friends in Crete and you did not disappoint. We have used your services 3 times now and you have excelled from pick-up in Sheffield to home delivery to our house in Falasarna in Crete.
We say “Thank You”. We certainly would recommend your services without any hesitation.”

Mr & Mrs Kharchi, Removal from Sheffield, UK to Crete, Greece, July 2018

“From start to finish Nomad provided a very professional service in moving our belongings into storage and then onto Crete at a later date.
The UK team were brilliant and packed up our home speedily and carefully. The team in Crete were also really friendly and efficient.
All in all a totally stress free event! We will definitely use Nomad again if needed and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”

Mr & Mrs Copeland, Removal from Lancashire, UK to Crete, Greece, September 2018

“Our removal from the Argolida to Wales could not have gone smoother. The guys packing in Greece found our small street without a problem and after arriving early everything was packed carefully and quickly. The delivery in Wales was on time and every package was handled with superb care. I would recommend Nomad to everyone planning a move. They were excellent!”

Mr Denley-Jones, Removal from Argolida, Greece to South Wales, July 2018

“Hi Danny,

the service from Nomad in Peterborough and the delivery guy Mark, was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We will be using nomad again.”

Mr & Mrs Lawrie, Removal from the UK to Crete, Greece, November 2018

“Dear Daz,

All of our goods from the UK arrived at our new house earlier this week and just wanted to say thank you to you and your colleagues here in Crete.
Everything has gone very smoothly. You and the Peterborough team have been very helpful in terms of setting up and accommodating our deliveries. The lorry driver, Dave, was also very courteous and helpful. Curtis and his partner did an excellent job in completing the delivery.
So – ‘thank you’.”

Mr Clive Angus, Removal from Frome, UK to Crete, Greece, October 2018

“Dear Daz,

Faced with the dilemma of trying to ship not only the contents of a Greek Villa, but also all the building materials from kitchens to plumbing equipment to tiles and sanitary ware, none of this fazed the staff at Nomad. We made a phone call, and then met with Daz on site in Cornwall. He promised us it would be ‘no problem’ and true to his word on collection day everything went without a hitch, the wagon was on time and managed to get to Paxos (no mean feat) also on time, we are extremely grateful for the professional way everything was handled, we are full of praise for Nomad and would have no hesitation in recommending them. I am sure we will be asking them again to help us when we finally take the plunge and move permanently.

You will be pleased to hear that the build is going well many thanks again.

Kind regards”

Mr & Mrs Lothian, Removal from Cornwall to Paxos, Greece, October 2018

“They say moving is one of the most stressful experiences one can have in life. Nomad International did everything possible to ease ‘the pain’. From getting a quote from Dan, to keeping me updated every step of the way, to the final delivery in Kefalonia, the service was professional, efficient and outstanding.
Charlie and Ray, two very polite and friendly chaps, packed my complete household in the UK quickly, with great care and went above and beyond my expectations.
Once my belongings arrived in Kefalonia according to schedule, Mark and Takis unloaded everything quickly and diligently. All I had to do was to say into which room each box should go to. There were no breakages owing to the excellent packaging.
Thank you so much to everybody involved. The crews both ends were outstanding and made everything easy and stress free. I cannot recommend Nomad International enough.
Thank you so much.”

Elli Constantatou, Removal from Chelmsford , UK to Kefalonia, Greece, September 2018

“Dear Sir,

I recently shipped some of my property from a small Greek island (Poros) to Knutsford, a village near Manchester. In case you’re worried that this is a complaint it’s just the opposite! I was only sending 6 small boxes and yet Dan always treated me as if I was his most valued customer. If he was a day late with a reply – and I had many questions – he always apologised profusely. Takis came early to our home to pick up the boxes and loaded them onto his empty van. Always polite and good-natured despite having to climb up and down nearly 50 steps! In England a special van was sent to Knutsford – again with only my boxes in it – so that you could meet my dates. A bit more expensive, but well worth it. Ray was another helpful and friendly soul!

Please give everybody involved a big pat on their backs from a happy customer.

I’ve recommended Nomad to several people already.

Best wishes”

Dr Francis Broun, small shipment from Poros, Greece to UK, July 2018

“Dear Dan,

We are grateful to the Nomad team, both in the UK and Greece for their efficient, fast and cheerful service and to you for facilitating this transfer of books so professionally. We would certainly recommend Nomad for any future removals from or to the UK and Greece.
Many thanks”

Mrs Penny Wilson, Removal from London to the British School at Athens, Greece, August 2018

“14 boxes delivered to Kritsa safe and sound. Some extremely fragile pieces, all in perfect condition. Thank you and well done Nomad excellent job.”

Mrs Sarah Booty, Crete Express, June 2018 (review on Facebook)

“Hi Daniel, thanks for the update the men did arrive and did well unloading the goods.
Thank for your help in the removal of our goods from Greece to the UK.
I would recommend your company on any moves.
Thanks again and please pass my thanks on to all those involved.”

Mr & Mrs Hough, Removal from Lesvos, Greece to Alton, UK, May 2018

“I first used this company in 2010 for a full house removal from Crete to UK. The service was excellent from the wrapping/preparation from Crete and the same care and expertise shown on container arrival in the UK. I then got in touch with them again for a move from Crete to France. The same professional, super service. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.”

Mrs Susan Lazou, Crete to the UK and Crete to France, (review on Facebook May 2018)

Also see our Facebook page for many more reviews that are not on this page!

“Hi Daniel

As I said on the phone, I have been very impressed with the service I have received to date from Nomad.  Both men who came to my house were pleasant and obliging, and they worked so hard and efficiently.  Well done to you all.

Again I just want to thank you and the team for all the help and efficiency which I have received from Nomad. Ian and Raymond delivered my goods today to Wem and they were pleasant and quick in putting all the goods into the container. All seems to be well and a couple of chips are probably down to my packing!!

Thank you so much for all the support and help. I have been most impressed with your company and will have no difficulty in recommending Nomad to anyone who asks about removals.

Good luck in the future. Bye for now.”

Mrs Wise, Removal from Corfu, Greece to Shropshire, UK, March 2018

“I would like to thank you all for your efforts and hard work in bringing our items back to the UK. We have been through a very stressful move back to the UK and you and your firm have been great… so from myself and my wife we send many many thanks and would recommend you to anybody who was looking for a company to transport their goods to and from Italy and/or Greece.”

Mr & Mrs Kinney, Removal from Crete, Greece to Liverpool, UK, January 2018

“Kalimera Dan,

All goods safely delivered and in working order. Thank you so much for all your help and superb service and please thank Takis too for me, as we had to do a quick turnaround here on Agistri because of the boat situation but it was mission accomplished.

Kind regards and have a good day.”

Mrs Christine Berry , Removal from Manchester, UK to Agistri, Greece, February 2018

“Hello Dan.
I know it’s been a while since we were in touch but I was waiting for the shipment to be delivered to my niece in Los Angeles.
So today (valentines) 14/2/18 it was delivered.
I thought I must tell you we are all most impressed with your service and handling the transfer from A to Z.
Your expertise in customer service, your choice of staff, your prompt response to our emails were most impressive.
Absolutely wonderful and we are so pleased we chose Nomad.
Thank you again for everything !!!!!”

Mrs Georgette Patrickios, Removal from Athens, Greece, to California, USA October 2017

“Hi Daz,

Just a quick email to thank you for your overseas delivery service.
Our goods have arrived in superb condition and no problems. Your people at both ends were superb.

Once again thanks.”

Mr George Kapantais , Removal from Liverpool, UK to Crete, Greece, January 2018

“Can’t recommend them enough.

Even though there were some hiccups with UPS (not Nomad’s fault), the communication was top notch, especially Daz, who replied very fast, was polite and patient.

Their prices were really low, and my parcel, after it was picked up, was delivered very fast.

Will be definitely doing business with them again.”

Mr Petros Zouroudis, Nomad Parcels to Greece, January 2018 (review on Facebook)

“Thank you for a very professional stress free service fast delivery to Crete, I highly recommend this amazing company.”

Mrs Nicola, Removal to Crete, September 2017 (review on Facebook)

“Fantastic job completed today Nomad, thank you so much, from start to finish you have been brilliant, coming down to Cornwall to make sure our quote was on track, to getting all our home delivered to our new house in Crete today, exactly on schedule despite bad weather and port blockades. Highly recommend your service to anyone needing to move goods to Greece.

Thanks SO much for helping us in our own next adventure.”

Mr & Mrs Stringer, Removal to Crete, January 2018 (review on Facebook)

“With the temperature reaching into the 40 degree plus area, Tracey and Mark from Nomad International Removals laboured on. They were brilliant, wrapping all the furniture and treasured crystal glass so carefully. Diligent, polite and very hard working we would recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys.”

Mr & Mrs Margrett, Removal from Crete, August 2017 (review on Facebook)

“Hi Dan,

Just to let you know that all our items have been delivered, all wrapped, boxed and in perfect condition.

Thanks to David for the long distance delivery and keeping me updated.

A massive thank you to the delivery team who were so very prompt, friendly and helpful beyond the call of duty. (The enormous, heavy sofa especially, all up 2 flights of stairs and round 2 tricky corners!)

And to you, of course, for your superb coordination.

The whole process has been made so easy, for me, by you all. I will never hesitate to highly recommend Nomad to anyone who may require your services.

Yours most gratefully”

Mrs Roberts, Removal from Peterborough, UK to Messinia, Greece, November 2017

“Nomad International came highly recommended by our estate agent in Kefalonia and they did not disappoint! A pleasure to deal with from start to finish – they dealt with 2 pick up points at different ends of the UK and got everything to Greece as promised – and it was all immaculately packed. We would not hesitate to use them again. It made the whole move totally stress free. 5 stars all round”

Mr & Mrs Mumford, Removal from London, UK to Kefalonia, Greece, July 2017

“Hi Dan,

All furniture etc now delivered safe and well! Our compliments to you and your staff for an excellent job in moving us from England, and the subsequent deliveries to Crete. You have made a very stressful time somewhat easier, and it is a huge relief to have all our items with us again.

Please pass on our grateful thanks to everyone involved who all worked very hard. We have no regrets about the move and love our new house and life!”

Mr & Mrs Ivison, Removal from Cumbria, UK, to Crete, Greece October 2017

All the best”

Mr Keating, Crated Grand Piano from Peterborough, UK to Crete, Greece, September 2017

“Hi Daz

I thought it about time that I wrote and thanked you for your help and the team for their hard work in our recent move from Elounda.
Mark and Tracy worked under difficult hot conditions and the two young men in Stoke carried nearly everything upstairs. Please convey our thanks to them all.

Everything arrived safe and sound!”

Mr & Mrs Hemmings, Removal from Crete, Greece to Stoke, UK, July 2017

“Hi Danny,

We would like to say a big thank you to all for making our move so easy. All the people concerned were brilliant and made it hassle free for us.

We are very impressed with your service, and would recommend your company to anyone wanting to move to Crete.

 Thanks again!!”

Mr & Mrs Thomas, Removal from Bristol, UK to Crete, Greece, May 2017


Hope you are all good.

Well everything arrived yesterday, not a thing was broken, all in great condition????

The team over here had it unloaded and put where we wanted in no time at all, very efficient.

I would like to thank you all for your brilliant service both in the U.K. and here in Crete.

I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Very best wishes


Mrs Patterson, Removal from Bristol, UK to Crete, Greece, May 2017

“We asked Nomad International to undertake the shipment of virtually our entire house contents from the North West of England to a tiny village on the Island of Kefalonia. We greatly appreciated their advice and guidance during the pre- removal and planning stage, and are delighted that their door to door service has proven to be just that. Their UK team took care of every aspect of packing and removing our contents from delicate glassware to garden tools. Eight days after departing their depot, our belongings arrived at the front door of our Kefalonia house, the whole consignment delivered on time, with care and without loss or damage. We are so happy to have chosen Nomad for this major operation, and to give our recommendation to this excellent Company”

Mr & Mrs Daynes, Removal from Chester, UK to Kefalonia, Greece, February 2017

“Dear Danny,

I would just like to thank you and your team, both in the UK and here in Crete for the safe and efficient delivery of my goods. I have recommended you to friends and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Nomad again should I need to move in the future.

All the best,”

Mrs Shelagh McGlenn, Removal from County Durham, UK to Crete, Greece, February 2017

“After 16 wonderful years living in Stoupa, Messinia Greece,we found it necessary to relocate back to the UK. In December, after making a list of all our possessions, I asked for a quote to collect and deliver all our goods from Greece back to Manchester UK. The quote was very reasonable and was accepted.

We had arranged to be back in Greece in February for 18 days to organise the removal. Our friends in Stoupa had been collecting packing materials for us and it took us 4 days to box and package everything….4 days later Nomad arrived, as promised, 2 excellent cheerful men and departed for Patras within the hour.

9 days later I had an E-Mail to say the goods had arrived in the Depot in UK and when would it be convenient to deliver them to our address. This morning they arrived as promised, on time and were put exactly where we wanted them by again 2 excellent workmen.

I would like to thank Daniel who kept me informed all the time over the last 3 months exactly what would happen, and it did without a flaw. Also to all the team that collected and delivered my goods, they were great.

I would certainly recommend your service to anyone who is moving from or back to the UK.

Thanks again.”

Mr Peter Haigh, Removal from Stoupa, Greece to Manchester, UK, February 2017

“Dear Taliesen

I wanted to thank and congratulate you and your team on doing such an excellent job for me on both occasions you shipped my possessions between the UK and Greece. The service was of the highest customer-focused standard right from the outset when I contacted Danny for information and a quotation.

The guys did a fantastic job of packing up all the large items and wrapping them in Furnigard, making the whole process completely pain-free for us. They were polite, courteous, professional and fun to have around; nothing was too much trouble.

That you managed to ship my things including electricals, mirrors and other fragile items, clothes and personal effects, 1500 miles across Europe by land without a single item being lost or damaged demonstrates the quality of of your service.

Your driver and the team in Greece were equally accommodating, keeping me informed at every stage of the journey exactly when I might receive my things. On one occasion the truck fell foul of a ferry strike by Greek workers and I was contacted straight away to let me know about the short delay.

Nomad surpassed all expectations at every stage of this potentially stressful event. Thanks to everyone involved.”

Mr Neville Seabridge, Removal to Corfu, Greece (and eventually removal back from Greece to UK, December 2016)

“Good evening Danny and Taliesen

We would first of all like to thank you all for the way in which our goods and chattels were handled during the move to Zakynthos. Everything went very smoothly and I am sorry that the 40 foot lorry was unable to reach to our property due to the small roads in this area where we live, however the team managed to overcome the situation and ‘ferry’ the goods in several trips using the small van. I am sure that this is not the first time this method has been used.

…Once again thank you and your team for all their help and assistance all the way through the experience.  You certainly have  great bunch of folks on your team!!

Kind regards”

Mrs Victoria Morgan, Removal to Zante, Greece, November 2016

PS: we will always recommend your services to any Brits coming out to Greece and also would use your services if we need to purchase anything else from the UK in future.

“Hi Danny,

Me and Jo my wife have got to say, your guys who come and packed us up were first class mate.  I can honestly say all done with ease, they were all brilliant, if you can let the boss know he’s got top blokes on the job.  Let us know when you have an idea of when our stuff will arrive and if you lot need a reference give them my number no probs.

Cheers Danny,

Kevin & Jo Whitmore”

“Hi Danny,

All our stuff unloaded now, the guys this end did a brilliant job, made it all easy.  All top blokes so cheers mate.

All the best,”

Kevin & Joanne Whitmore, Removal to Zakynthos, Greece, November 2016


Belated ‘Thank you’.

You might recall arranging a move back in April for us from South East London to Mastihari on the Dodecanese island of Kos.  We were put in mind of you earlier this week when we saw your Nomad International wagon near our new home.  We took the liberty of taking a couple of photos.  Copy attached.

It reminded us that we had not written to thank you guys for the excellent job you did for us.  We appreciated your telephone calls and emails at the time.   The guys that came to our London flat to do the packing were professional, personable and efficient.  Our goods were delivered (all of them and intact) to our new home before we travelled.   Our friends (who took delivery on our behalf) were impressed by the guys who took care of the delivery in Kos.

Kind regards,”

Chris Davis and Pam Band, Removal to Kos, Greece, April 2016 (Testimonial October 2016)

“Hello Daniel

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help in shipping our goods to Crete. Everything arrived safely and in good condition.

I would like to also comment on the delivery guys here who were excellent throughout and were very efficient, friendly and extremely helpful. I’m not sure of their names but I think the older guy was Steve. Please make sure that our thanks to them are passed on as I feel it’s important to give credit where it’s due.

Again, many thanks”

Sue Fleming, Removal to Crete, Greece, June 2016

“We would like to thank Daniel and all the team at Nomad in the UK and in Crete for the excellent service we had from our move from UK to Crete.

The process was excellent and we would certainly recommend Nomad  to anyone thinking of moving to Greece.

Thanking you again Carol and Shaun Adams.”

Chrystabel Butler, Removal to Patras, Greece, May 2016

“Dear Taliesen & Danny,

Many thanks to you and all at Nomad International who contributed to the safe arrival in Nisyros of our two items of furniture.

Both were so well packaged that it would have been all but impossible for the items to have sustained any damage en-route.

We have been impressed by the professionalism and customer care that has been so evident throughout the past few months.

We would be very happy to use the services of Nomad International again, as and when we require to do so.

We are happy to recommend the company to any and all potential customers and would be pleased if you were to use this text as a recommendation on your website.

Kind regards,”

Mike & Brenda Naylor, transport to Nisyros, Greece, May 2016

“Hi Danny,

I got my packages all 15 off them delivered today – and guess what? I got all 15 packs. But more to the point the packs were all in pristine condition lol they did not even look like they had travelled 2 metres let alone 2000kms.

The lads that delivered, Curtis and Steve were absolutely brilliant. Polite, handled everything really well like it was their own. Even the one marked ‘very fragile’ and then I told them what it was, it is a very expensive lamp, worth several hundred pounds when I bought it sometime a few years back. It is also one of my most favourite possessions.
Initially I was not going to send it due to the high risk of breakage. But I am pleased to say, it arrived without one single scratch or break.

I wanted to let you know I cannot say enough about your service or the guys who actually delivered it. They were absolutely fantastic. I now although I had been recommended to you by friends who had used you also, I too can confidently recommend your service to others.

Thanks a lot for being perfect and say thanks to the guys too.

Many thanks,”

Mr Mark Kristian, Delivery from the UK to Crete, March 2016

“Dear all,

I would just like to thank your team for an excellent job!  I have mentioned how amazing you are on Facebook!!  All arrived to my little house that I have yet to see myself!!  I will promote you as best I can both on Kefalonia & Zakynthos.

Thank you again for making my move so easy!!

All the best”

Just to say thankyou for the excellent service we received from Nomad on our move from Preveza back to the UK.   Your teams in Greece and the UK were very professional and so helpful nothing was too much trouble for them especially in Greece having to carry things down from the second floor didn’t seem to bother them at all and they were so pleasant.  All our goods are now unpacked and we are settling down to life in the UK again.  We would not hesitate in recommending your Company to other people so once again thank you.”

We arrived in Crete Sunday lunchtime and Mark contacted us around 4.30 and by 7pm Mark and Tracy had moved all our belongings in to our villa and on unpacking all our furniture etc can happily confirm not one thing was damaged or broken.

You and your team have been great and nothing has been too much trouble. Taking into consideration that there was china and glassware in the consignment I am delighted that everything arrived in perfect condition.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company.

Please give a big thank you to all your team – well done!!

Kind regards”

Mr David Heel, Removal to Crete, Greece, May 2015

“After several months of fruitless searching for men with white vans to transport a few household items from the UK to our house in Greece, I found Nomad’s website easily on the Internet. The discovery of a very professional and helpful organisation made the operation relatively easy and, I’m pleased to say, comparatively inexpensive. Throughout the process of making up the consignment and collection from northeast England to delivery in Greece, Nomad’s staff were always available to give sound timely advice and support. The consignment arrived on schedule and I was able to track its progress across Europe on a daily basis. I am most grateful to Nomad and would definitely recommend this company to any ex-patriot or holiday home owner contemplating shipping household effects overseas.”

Mr Leslie Fox, Transport to Aegina, Greece, February 2015

“Moving home within the same country is stressful enough, but moving 1500 miles to another country is in a different league. We needed to feel confident in the company we used and, from the very first telephone call with Danny to the arrival of our possessions in Greece, we never felt anything other than that we had made the right choice in using Nomad.

On collection day, the guys were industrious, professional and good company! We had possessions in storage as well as at home, collection from two sites wasn’t an issue. It was a cold and, ultimately damp day but their effort and humour never dropped.

On delivery they were brilliant, no other way of describing them. Our new home in Greece is in a village on top of a hill and at the end of narrow, stepped paths. Access is difficult and the nearest parking is 75m away. Not an issue to your two guys who worked tirelessly all morning.”

Kind regards,

Mr Nigel Elworthy, Removal to Stoupa, Messinia, Greece 2014 (Testimonial January 2015)

“From the moment we first contacted Nomad to enquire about removals to Crete to the day our belongings were delivered to our new home, the company’s service was exceptional.  Nomad really helped to ease the pressure of moving to a new country and to put our minds at rest.  They explained everything clearly and concisely, answered queries promptly and gave us a detailed timetable.  Their staff in the UK and in Crete were utterly professional, diligent and courteous at all times.  We have no hesitation in recommending the company.”

Howard Carr and John Bligh, Removal to Crete, Greece September 2014 (Testimonial December 2014)

“We were very impressed with the support and service that we received from the time we first contacted Nomad and spoke to Danny who gave us lots of good advice about packing, to the guys who came and packed up the house. I”ve never seen packing and removing done in such an efficient and speedy way, the guys were all really helpful and worked really hard.

The people who delivered to our house in Greece were also really helpful, friendly and very efficient.  As we live in a remote area, everything had to be broken down from the trailer into a smaller van and bought up in relays, this was done really well and everyone was friendly, efficient and helpful

I would not hesitate to recommend Nomad to anyone needing a removal service, we were really impressed with the whole service.  We are very impressed by the value for money and feel that we had a great service and excellent value for the money we paid.

Thanks and best regards”

Mrs Sheila Ball, Removal from the UK to the Peloponnese, Greece, 2014 (Testimonial November 2014)

Conducting removals to the Greek islands is a fascinating business.  We never cease to be amazed by the beautiful locations our customers choose to live, and we’re always up for the challenge.  This time a customer was moving from the UK to the tiny island of Hydra, off the Peloponnese in Greece, and contacted us to help with his removal.  There was just one problem, he said: trucks aren’t allowed on the island!  In fact all vehicles are completely prohibited.  Not ones for shying away from a challenge, we didn’t hesitate to take on the job.

Removals to Hydra involve firstly parking the truck at the “port” on the mainland, before carefully transferring the goods into a small boat!  On arrival on the island, it’s time to load up the… donkeys!  That’s right, donkeys.  This is not our normal modus operandi, but when in Rome…

And finally, the delivery into the customer’s house (which was relatively easy compared to the odyssey we had undertaken to get here).  Our customer Mr Burgess was very helpful and even insisted on helping us carry the goods into his home.  All in all it was a great job, and another one for the Nomad history books.

Compared to this job, most of our removals to and from the Greek islands are relatively straightforward!  But every job involves a certain degree of difficulty.  We’re lucky to have an outstanding team who are capable of doing even the toughest of removals, while still having fun.  If you want to move to or from the Greek mainland or any of the Greek islands, Nomad International is the company to use.




“Dear Danny,

Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for delivering all our stuff to Crete so well and with such friendly service.  Mark and Tracy were really great and so helpful.  Everything is now more or less in its right place.

So our thanks to all of you.

Best wishes,”

Canon Philip and Mrs Frances Lambert, Removal from the UK to Crete, Greece, June 2014

“Hi Danny,

Just wanted to tell you how pleased we were with all aspects of our removal from Crete to the UK and to tell you in our opinion your company are second to none so thank you for all the help we have had from you all at Nomad.

Our very best wishes”

Rod & Diane Rayner, Removal from Kalyves, Crete, Greece to the UK, April-May 2014

“I would like to say a big thank you to all at Nomad International, for the excellent professional, efficient and friendly service that we received recently when transporting our goods (door to door) from England to Crete. Would certainly recommend you and use you again.

And we will recommend Nomad to all we can.

Nomad’s New Euro 6 Truck in Crete

Beautiful early morning photo taken in Crete two weeks ago, with the White Mountains in the background living up to their name. Crete is such an amazing place, with winter temperatures into the 20s while there is snow on the mountains!

This is the first trip to Greece for our new tractor unit. We’ve got a busy year ahead so this truck won’t be still for very long, it will be almost non-stop to and from Crete and the other Greek islands.

“Dear Danny,

One word: EXCELLENT. Thanks a lot for everything, I highly recommend your company to everybody who wants to move from Belgium to Crete.

Perfect service (packing, transport, delivery), perfect communication, highly qualified staff and all this for a very good price.

Many greetings and again, thank you.”

Mr Benny Asselberghs, Removal from Belgium to Agia Galini, Crete, Greece, March 2014

“Dear Nomad,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all your team who were involved in our recent relocation from Crete to France. We had all our possessions delivered on Thursday and have been busy unpacking for the past 4 days. Everything that we have been able to check has arrived intact. A couple of items of furniture which we cannot accommodate in our rental property have been left packed but we will assume that they are also fine as we do not wish to disturb their packing at this time.

The packing was excellent and the team (Mark, Tracy and Graham) involved in moving our possessions from the house, into storage and then onto the truck did a great job although they must have been getting sick and tired of moving it all around.

It all arrived on schedule and David and Rob also did a great job unloading and transferring it into the house.  Not to forget Danny who kept us informed all the way.

A job well done!

Many thanks,”

Jeremy & Marian Lewis, Removal from Crete, Greece to France, February 2014

“To all at Nomad,

Just a note to say a very very big thank you for excellent service and for a stress free move back to the UK from Rhodes. Everyone we had contact with were brilliant but especially Danny who proved very reliable in always ringing us back whenever we had any queries, he is a real asset to the company.

Many thanks again and all the best wishes for Xmas and 2014.”

Jane & Ian Morrison, Removal from Rhodes, Greece to the UK, December 2013

“Tim and I both wanted to thank you for the brilliant service we had from you at Nomad, and how pain free you made our return to the UK.  The team that came to collect our belongings from Kefalonia were brilliant and did such a good job, and the team in the UK were equally good.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Nomad to anyone wishing to leave or return to the UK.  Thanks again for all your help and your excellent service.

Sincerely yours,”

Penny and Tim Cottingham, Removal from Kefalonia, Greece to the UK, testimonial October 2013

“Hi Danny,

This message is to tell you that David arrived today in Fréjus, as it was organised at 9 AM.

We wanted to tell you that your staff in Crete, as in France, have been very professional.  No stress, very well organised and really nice.

We will recommend Nomad around us and to the buyers of our house who will have to organise their removal from England to Crete.

Thank you for your proactivity and the quality of your service.

Best regards,”

Alexandra Yoldjoglou, Removal from Crete, Greece to Fréjus, Southern France, September 2013

“Good morning, we just wanted to say a huge, HUGE, MEGA thank you to both your teams. Rob and Charlie were miracle workers getting all our stuff in the van and the team in Crete were equally amazing delivering our stuff right to the door! Everyone was so calm and unflappable – nothing was too much trouble and everything was possible. Please pass on our thanks and good wishes to everyone. We will definitely be using you again and would recommend you without hesitation.”

Mr & Mrs Pegg, Removal to Crete, Greece, August 2013

“Hi Daniel,

The 4 suitcases and 2 boxes arrived in Crete safely. Just wanted to thank you, Rob and Charlie for the friendly and efficient way you dealt with our business. Charlie was great in the careful and quick way he unloaded the 6 items from our car and guided us to the your office. Rob and you made us feel at ease in the way you both took the trouble to explain how our stuff would be transported to Crete.”

Chris Ttoouli, Crete Express shipment from the UK to Crete, July 2013

As specialists in shipping to Greece and Italy we are often asked to conduct removals on behalf of other removal companies who have clients moving to or from these countries. This testimonial is from a customer of the Whittle Group, who we recently moved from the UK to their new home near Stoupa in Greece:

“Please could you also pass on our thanks to the two men Dave and Mark from Nomad who moved us in here in Greece.  The moving of the wardrobes into the house and up the winding steps involved a balancing act worth remembering and will live with us for some time!  We will fully recommend your services and found you to be professional from start to finish.

Yours faithfully,”

Mr Jolly and Ms Parkinson – Removal to Stoupa, Greece on behalf of the Whittle Group, July 2013

“Dear Danny

We want to thank you, Rob and everyone else connected with our goods’ journey from Crete.  It was all very smooth and easy, everything arrived intact and we appreciated it very much.

Best wishes”

Mr & Mrs Aubrey and Sheila Attwater, Removal from Crete, Greece to the UK, June 2013

“Dear Danny,

I just thought that I had to write and personally thank you and your team for the excellent job you did in transporting our furniture and household items to our new villa in Crete.

I have just returned from Makrygialos after spending a wonderful 12 days unpacking all our furniture etc and can happily confirm not one thing was damaged or broken.  Taking into consideration that there were mirrors, china, glassware etc and lots of solid oak furniture, I am delighted that everything arrived in perfect condition.

You and your team have been wonderful and nothing has been too much trouble – you have collected from me in Bristol, I have had things delivered directly to you in Peterborough and then you have collated everything and delivered it directly to our villa in Crete – wonderful!!  I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company.

Please give a big thank you to all your team  – well done!!

Best wishes,”

Debbie Wright, Removal to Crete, Greece, May 2013

“Good morning from sunny Crete, I can”t praise your company enough for our move from the UK to Crete, you are collectively first class – efficient, supportive, professional –  you do what you say you will do.  Moving house is fraught enough but once I got Nomad involved it all seemed a bit easier.

Happy days to you all.”

Mr P Nunnen, Removal to Crete, Greece, April 2013

“Dear Danny,

Just a quick email to say thank you for a job well done.

I am very satisfied and NOTHING was broken.  All boxes have been removed to go to recycling and all my goods are packed away.

I hope to stay put so I shouldn”t need your service again but I will certainly let people know about Nomad.


Mr Brian Callow, Removal to Syros, Greece, April 2013

“Dear Danny,

May I just say that my wife was extremely impressed with the courtesy and professionalism of Charlie and Hamish, something which is in very short supply these days.”

Mr Andrew Theaker, Transport to Crete, Greece, March 2013

“Dear Danny,

I just wanted to thank you for all your help in sending the hostess trolley to my cousin in Corfu.   It arrived safely (I think Friday evening) and she said the two people who delivered were most helpful and carried the package upstairs (I didn’t mention this was up two flights of marble stairs!) and that they had taken all the packaging away.

From sending my first inquiry online until delivery I have been very impressed by Nomad International and the excellent prompt and efficient service you provide.

Best wishes”

Ros Whitehead, Shipping to Corfu, Greece, March 2013

“Hello Danny,

We want to let you know that we were very pleased with the service of the Nomad team. The Harley came out without a scratch. Thanks a lot to David and the rest of the team. The boat and other items were fine too of course, but the bike kept my husband awake a couple of days. Now he can sleep again, we are very happy to have chosen Nomad.”

Mrs Bep Roodnat, Removal to Crete, Greece February 2013

“Vera and myself would like to thank your team for the fantastic service you provided in collecting our boxes. I worked in transport for over forty years, and I have to say this was the best service I have ever experienced. A special thanks to your two team members for their hard work and very friendly nature.”

Mr & Mrs Geoff and Vera Milligan, Removal from the Peloponnese, Greece, February 2013

“Hi Dan and Co,

Just want to say a big thanks for a very smooth and successful operation in getting our various chattels and such out to Plaka.  Everyone was highly efficient and may I add very friendly.  The guys who came packed everything really well; almost too well!

Dave and his crew were great. Before their arrival I have to say I was a little concerned as to how it will all go but I need not have been.  They were first rate and very quick in unloading everything.  That little van is far smaller than I expected!!  Whilst not nearly finished in doing everything – perhaps sometime late this summer- I have, after four and half days, unpacked each and every box and put, all but, all away, in one way or another.  Everything was in tip top conditon except one clean break on a cut glass wine glass where the foot had broken in two.  The stem and bowl not at all affected.  However it is a trifle and we would like to thank you and your crew for handling things so efficiently and carefully.

As you will know you are picking up my brother-in-law”s stuff from Bristol on Monday.  My wife Lin will be here by then but I assume it will be Dave and his crew in charge.  Tell Dave I look forward to seeing him again.

Anyway I wanted to thank you on behalf of myself and my wife for handling our stuff so efficiently and with such care.

With thanks,”

Mr Geoff Pollock, Removal to Crete, Greece, January 2013

“Hi Danny,

Just a quick mail to thank you for the excellent service I received from Nomad. My furniture arrived on Saturday with no problems, even on a van small enough to go through the Old Town. The guys who moved the furniture, both in the UK and here in Greece were very friendly and helpful and the detailed information and assistance I received from you together combined to make this a stress free move under sad circumstances.

I will certainly be recommending Nomad in the future.

Best wishes,”

Jill Simmons, Removal to Rhodes, Greece, November 2012

“Dear Nomad team,

Just a quick note to thank you and your team for our furniture! Having been in Greece a year, renovated an old house and managed the complicated systems here it was such a relief to have one thing that was organised beginning to end by someone else.

From signing the initial contract to opening up the stuff we had nothing at all to do… Having heard horror stories from others who have moved here with other companies we were very happy to do nothing and leave it to the professionals.

So thank you, very much. We know you have the best reputation and now we know why!

Best wishes,”

Colin and Joan Bailey, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2012

“Having used Nomad International for my move to Crete in 2006 and subsequent return to the UK in July this year (2012) I would just like to say a heartfelt “Thank You” to you and your team both on Crete and in the UK for a most efficient, professional and friendly service.

In particular to Sheila (Crete) and to both Rob and Danny here in the UK for their personal involvement in making the removal and after care service a credit to you and the company as a whole;  nothing was too much trouble at any time.

I would recommend your company unreservedly.”

Clive Dyson, Removal from Crete to the UK, October 2012

“Dear Nomad,

We would like to thank you and your team, Rob, Hamish and Charlie for an excellent service provided both in the UK and in Italy.  Your team are excellent ambassadors for your company.   We would highly recommend yourself and your organisation to anyone.  We were pleased that we chose your company for our removal to Italy and would use your services again.

Best wishes and kind regards,”

Patricia and Patrick O’Brien, Removal to Le Marche, Italy, August 2012

“Dear Taliesen, Danny and the rest of the crew,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for the way you handled the delivery of our furniture from Southend to Umbria.

The whole process ran extremely smoothly and there was not a single moment when I had any concerns about the job being done properly.

The team were courteous, efficient and careful when they collected the items from me and although I was not in Italy when it arrived my project manager was in awe of the way the guys handled the job. I think he was particularly impressed when they parked the lorry in the main town and then proceeded to tell him that they had timed the runs to my house at 17 minutes each way and knew exactly how long the job would take. Military precision.

Many thanks again to you all.”

Mr Andrew White, Removal to Umbria, Italy.  Comments by email September 2012

“Hello to all at Nomad,

My wife and I are now settled in Crete after the arrival of our furniture etc. and I simply wanted to say a big thank you to all concerned with the process of transfer from England to here. Every single item, including many that were fragile or very fragile,  arrived safely. No damage whatsoever! Given the task undertaken, I find this simply amazing and testament to your care and attention to detail.

Throughout the process every member of your team was attentive, patient and courteous, helping us through the process and giving a sense of assurance. Your pick up team and delivery team were efficient, pleasant and willing, and again gave a sense of assurance.

I will always recommend Nomad to anyone who was thinking of moving abroad!

Many thanks again and best wishes to all,”

Carl Burrows, Removal to Crete, Greece, September 2012

“Thank you for a flawless moving experience from Crete back to wet UK.  The guys last saturday are a credit to your company – polite, understanding and very patient!!  I will, and have done on many occasions, recommend your company to anyone.

Thank you.


Mr David Tate, Removal from Crete, Greece to the UK, July 2012

“We have finally unpacked everything following our move in May and not a thing was broken or damaged.  We received excellent service in England and your people in Crete are every bit as helpful.  I  would not hesitate to use your company again and would strongly recommend your services.  Your staff are a credit to your business, nothing was too much trouble.  A stress free, easy move.

Efharisto poli.”

Dave and Dianne Skinner, Removal to Trialonia, Crete, Greece, Testimonial June 2012

“I just wanted to email you to say thank you for your very prompt and well organised service.  You made the move from Crete back to the UK completely stress free!

The guys (and gal) who did all the hard graft of humping around all the boxes etc, were an extremely happy bunch.

Thank you all.

Kind regards,”

Mrs Kirsty Robson, Removal from Crete, Greece to Stamford, UK, April 2012

“Dear Danny,

I am writing to thank you for Nomad’s work in moving to Crete.  Your staff were immaculate on all counts, both in collection and delivery.  There were several items of furniture with glass in them and all this arrived safely.  There was also the fact that everything had to be carried the last 200 yards, as not even a small car can negotiate the right angle bends in the small village.

Thank you again.

Yours sincerely,”

Mr Christopher Wright, Removal to Crete, Greece, March 2012

“Dear Mr Baldwin

Further to our telephone conversation, I would like to say how much of a pleasure it has been to deal with you, Robert and the staff at Nomad International to safely ship my furniture from Crete to the UK.  The service provided throughout has been outstanding right from my initial enquiry  through to delivery and installation of the furniture in my home.  You have kept me and my agents in Crete informed at all stages and dealt with my enquiries in a most courteous, very prompt and efficient manner for which I am extremely impressed and grateful. You are the true masters of customer service! Keep up the excellent work and service!

Thank you to your teams, both at home and abroad for upholding your high standards and a job well done.

With kind regards,”

Mr Tony Hodge, Removal from Crete, Greece to UK, February 2012

“To all at Nomad,

Thankyou all so much for making our move to Corfu in Oct 2011 go so easily. We cannot recommend you highly enough. From start to finish you all did everything possible to fit into our plans, difficult unsure dates [every thing arrived less than 24 hrs after us] all in perfect condition. All of you were friendly & helpful. Very reasonably priced against all other quotes we received. So pleased we came back to you again when we decided we would make our stay permanent & needed more goods brought over in Nov. We have recommended you to Corfu Homefinders & several other people.

All our Best Wishes to you all for Christmas & 2012. Take Care. Best Regards,”

Mr & Mrs Dave & Rose Belcher, Removal to Corfu, Greece, November 2011

Mrs Judith Morton, Removal to Corfu, Testimonial November 2011

“We have used Nomad International’s service on a number of occasions, both ways, UK-Crete and back, and cannot fault this service or the company. Excellent communications, always on time, polite staff, and everyone is very nice and cheerful, which makes it a great pleasure to work with Nomad. The prices are good too!”

Jeremy Rodwell, Removals to and from Crete, Greece, November 2011

“Dear Nomad,

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for your wonderful service, a professional service with a smile from all involved, especially Taliesen, David & Mark, big cheers to them 🙂

I have used Nomad removals twice now and been exceptionally happy on both occasions. The first time was bring goods to me from the Uk to Crete, Greece and this time, November 2011, a complete removal from Crete to France.

Everyone involved were fab and my stuff arrived in my new French abode only 2 days after me, even with the Greek Ferries on go-slow.

I would definitely highly recommend your services and will be back next time, (next time?? Ohhhh not for a while eh) 🙂

Many Thanks & Christmas Greetings to you all.”

Cher Fauvèl, Removal from Crete to France, November 2011

From the Greek Reporter – An excavation in western Crete has uncovered a sealstone engraved with Minoan hieroglyphics, the first time such evidence has ever been found in the area.

A four-sided red jasper sealstone is among the finds unearthed during this season’s excavation of the Minoan peak sanctuary at Vrysinas, located south of the city of Rethymnon.  The whole area was officially announced and included in the archaeological sites list by the Central Archaeological Council of Greece.

The sealstone, which is carved on all four surfaces with characters of the Minoan Hieroglyphic script, constitutes the sole evidence to date for the presence of this earliest Minoan style of writing in Western Crete.

The excavation, which began in 2004, is conducted by the Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities under the supervision of the archaeologist Helena Papadopoulou in collaboration with Prof. Iris Tzachili from the Department of History and Archaeology of the University of Crete.

From CNN: Amid all the news surrounding the European Debt Crisis, it is easy to lose sight of the positive news coming out of Greece, including an increase in tourism of 9.6% over last year.  Chris Kokenes returns to his ancestral home of Kalamata to see how it is faring.

After reading all the bad economic news coming out of Greece, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that the Greek people are still carrying on their daily lives.

Greeks may be cutting back on their vacations, but the country has seen a rise in the number of tourists. The Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises expects more than 10.5 million visitors this year, a 9.6% increase from 2010.

On a recent trip to my mother’s hometown of Kalamata, I was curious to see how this seaside city on the southern part of the Peloponnese, best known for its luscious olives and as the birthplace of the New Age performer Yanni, was faring amid the country’s economic crisis.

Unlike Athens, which is home to more than 3 million Greeks, the images of protests and distress are nowhere to be visibly found in this sun-drenched town of just over 100,000. Here, the city seems to embrace the energy of the sun. Young people seem to outnumber the old.

The origins of the city’s name remain murky, but according to relatives, it’s probably derived from the Greek words “kala ommata,” which means “beautiful eyes.”

Kalamata is hardly a destination most tourists consider when they think of a vacation in Greece. The islands of Mykonos and Santorini are usually the headliners in that fantasy.

Kalamata, the 10th largest city in Greece and the capital of Messinia, is built on the foot of the Tavgetos and near Messinia Bay. It draws mostly Greek vacationers, as it’s a good home base close to other tourist sites in Messinia and ferries to some nearby islands, including the Ionian island of Kythira and Kissamos in Crete.

But for most people, the lure of Kalamata is the beaches, with their blue waters and free sun beds.

The tranquil beaches in Kalamata are more than 6 miles long, and elderly people taking a morning swim is a familiar sight.  Take a leisurely walk or bike ride along the promenade, and it’s hard not to stop into one the many tavernas for a cold Mythos beer and a Mikri Pikilia: a selection of sardines, meatballs, calamari, tomatoes and cucumbers.

“Dear Daniel, I just wanted to thank you and everyone at Nomad.

From my initial enquiry with you, through the removal from Greece and the delivery to Oxford and all the phone calls and e mails inbetween, I have been very impressed by the level of service. David and Mark in particular were fantastic over in Greece, please say a big thank you from me!

Everything arrived in perfect condition and even my olive tree survived the journey!  Everyone has been friendly and helpful and the cost was extremely reasonable.

I have already recommended you to some friends thinking of moving back and as for myself, I hope to go back to Greece in the not too distant future so you’ll be hearing from me!

Thank you once again,

Best wishes,”

Mary Doherty, Removal from Aegina, Greece to Oxford, UK, September 2011

“We have had 3 deliveries from England to Crete with your company and we wish to thank you for the excellent service you provided.  No matter which member of staff we had contact with we were impressed with their friendly, helpful and professional manner.

It goes without saying that we would have no hesitation in employing your services again and in recommending you to others.”

Mr & Mrs Ian and Sandra Pearson, Removal to Crete, Greece, September 2011

“I would like to thank you all for the efficient and quality service all of your staff have given us. The complication with the strikes added to your problems but the service you delivered was excellent and I have no problems in continuing to recommend Crete Express and Nomad International.

I was particularly impressed by the communication between Sheila, your drivers and ourselves. They kept us fully up to date with progress and arranged for the collection at Vamos perfectly without any delay.

Thanks again to you all for an excellent service.

“Nomad are a very professional company.  No job is too big or too small for them.  We were very satisfied with they way our possessions were moved.”

Richard and Marion Gresley, Removal from Crete, Greece to the UK, May 2011

We’ve just added a new video to our Packing Advice page.  This will be the first in a series of videos on packing for your removal.

Although we recommend using Nomad International’s team to do the packing and wrapping for your removal of course, we understand that some of our customers still prefer to do some or all of this themselves.  For those customers who would like to do this, these videos will teach you to pack and wrap for your removal according to principles recommended by the BAR for overseas removals.  The first video is on choosing the right packaging materials – it is embedded below and you can also find it with a full text explanation at the bottom of the Removal Advice page.

The voice-over and acting are a bit sketchy (!), but our main priority was getting the information across to our customers. We had fun creating it and we hope you enjoy it.

ANSA / – Herculaneum, Campania – Archaeologists are discovering new insights into how the Romans lived in Herculaneum 2,000 years ago by what they left behind – in the ancient city’s sewers.

Herculaneum, which lies on the Bay of Naples in southern Italy, was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii, Stabiae and other nearby towns in 79 AD.

Specialists involved in the Herculaneum Conservation Project have excavated the ancient sewers of the city and uncovered the largest deposit of organic material ever found in the Roman world.

Apart from 170 crates of artefacts including pottery,a lamp and 60 coins, the excavation team has recovered bone pins, necklace beads and a gold ring with a decorative gemstone from the sewers.

But it is the organic deposits that may provide the most innovative research – giving researchers an unprecedented insight into the diet and health of the Roman inhabitants.

Case Study

Delivery of Concert Grand Piano to Apartment in Crete

Concert Grand Piano removal by Nomad InternationalRemovals to Crete are never straightforward, and our team members are used to going the extra mile to deliver to remote or difficult-to-access locations. Many of our customers worry especially about transporting valuable or fragile items over such a long distance. Our customer Mr Kypri recently had all of these concerns in one removal, with his ambitious plan to transport a top-of-the-range Bosendorfer concert grand piano as part of his removal from the UK to his new apartment in Aghios Nikolaos.

Bosendorfer pianos are among the finest in the world, and Mr Kypri’s beautiful 2.25m concert grand piano is a magnificent example. The prospect of transporting it for him was both exciting and daunting, since it presented the dual challenges of being both very fragile and extremely heavy. Furthermore, Mr Kypri’s home in Crete is not a house but an apartment, on a narrow one-way street in the town of Aghios Nikolaos.

Nomad International concert grand piano removalAs with all of our removals, we planned to transport the piano all the way from door-to-door, by road. We arranged for a specialist piano crating company to meet us on site on collection day and load the export-wrapped piano into a purpose-built wooden crate, which we transported back to our Peterborough warehouse. The crated piano (which now weighed in excess of 1 tonne including the crate) was kept in storage for a short period, while the rest of Mr Kypri’s furniture was taken straight to Crete. Once we received the go-ahead from Mr Kypri to deliver the piano, we booked it onto our next scheduled departure, due to arrive in Crete just prior to Easter.

Because of the narrow streets in Aghios Nikolaos, we knew that our large international lorry would not be able to reach the apartment, so we planned a strategy which involved transferring the piano into our medium-sized shuttle van and then using a crane to lift it into the apartment. Our team of four men would then bring the piano inside, unwrap it and assemble it under the supervision of a piano technician, all of whom were booked in advance.

Thankfully Mr Kypri and our team kept their cool, and a few phone calls had the crane outside and ready to go. The crate was removed and the piano (still wrapped and on a special shoe) was transferred to the crane vehicle, then lifted gracefully into the air, and finally onto Mr Kypri’s balcony. Our team then brought the piano inside, removed all of the wrapping materials and reassembled the beautiful instrument in its new home, in perfect condition.

Planning and communication were the cornerstones of this removal, but most important was the determination of our team to overcome any last-minute obstacles and complete the job properly on the day.

Mr Kypri said “I was delighted with everybody I dealt with at Nomad, in England and in Crete. Everybody was enthusiastic and competent, and getting the job done properly overrode any other considerations. I would heartily recommend them.”

<p><strong>Mr A Kypri, Removal to Crete, Greece, April 2011</strong></p>

“First of all I want to say how impressed I was with the service you provided for the 13 packages which arrived on Tuesday. From the initial enquiry, during the 3 weeks or so of deliveries coming in from various suppliers, the final costing and then to the efficient delivery at this end – fantastic! You have a great team who all seem to be highly motivated and the service is truly outstanding.”

Brian Stewart, "Crete Express" Shipment to Crete, Greece, May 2011

“Hi Rob and Team at Nomad,

Just wanted to thank you all for the excellent service you provided. My 8 parcels arrived from your May 3rd trailer in Vamos as promised all safe and sound. It was like Christmas Day again here at the villa, opening all of our parcels. I look forward to using Nomad again very soon.”

Karin and Graham Henderson, "Crete Express" Shipment to Crete, Greece, May 2011

“Moving to Crete has been a fantastic experience and, for us, it started with Nomad International. Their team were professional amd friendly, and most important, really cared about us and our move. They supply a real door to door service – there are no containers sitting in a port somewhere waiting on an un-named agent.

They sorted our mistakes and from packing in the UK to placing the furniture where we wanted it in our new home in Crete. Tal, Dave, Tracy et al were only a phone call away. My wife and I would reccomend them to anyone who is thinking of moving.  I’m sure there are cheaper but I doubt there are better.”

Dave Buchanan, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2010

“I have used Nomad to deliver furniture from the UK to Crete on three separate occasions and am really impressed with the service they offer. Their staff are courteous and professional, their deliveries on time and our goods arrived undamaged. I will certainly use them again and would recommend them to anyone.”

Roger Newbery, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2010

“In June this year (2010) we moved our belongings from the UK to Thassos, Greece, with the help of Nomad International. Both before and during the removal, we could not fault Nomad. The preparations to the move were complicated and confused (from our point of view) but Nomad were always at the end of the phone, always patient and always helpful and informative. When they said they would ring back, they did. When they said they would reply by email, they did so promptly and in all the dealings we had with them, they were both professional and friendly. During the move, when we had a mini crisis, having found we had packed a vital document, they could not have been more helpful, calmly helping us to resolve the matter with the minimum of fuss. Again, when our belongings were delivered, we could not fault the friendly willing service we received. With Nomad”s help, a potentially fraught experience was streamlined to relative simplicity, and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering their services.”

<p><strong>Carol Maggs, Removal to Thassos, Greece, June 2010</strong></p>

“In writing a testimonial for Nomad International I would like to say it was a pleasure to work with staff who were both attentive and particular in their detail. My wife and I were extremely satisfied with the service provide by your company. The arrangements for forwarding our goods out to Crete was by no means straight-forward – albeit that Nomad International took it all in their stride and made it appear that what we were asking was an every-day occurrence.

Your staff kept in touch with us throughout and collated the delivery of various types of goods, from several different suppliers, over a protracted period of time.

In respect of the actual delivery this was handled with due diligence and encompassed liaison with our property developer actually on site.

We were extremely pleased with absolutely everything – and the only damage to the full shipment was a small chip from one dinner plate!

We would like to thank in particular Taliesen Hollywood and Daniel Baldwin for all their help – they were both excellent!

We would not hesitate to recommend your company to others – and indeed we have done so.

Thanks and regards,”

Martin Pearce, Removal to Crete, Greece, June 2010

“Just a quick note from the Internet Cafe to send you an enormous thank you for everything you and your employees have done for us. We have both been most impressed by the quality and professionalism shown nevermind the patience and understanding.

We can’t recommend you highly enough and are distributing some of your leaflets to our contacts here and spreading the word.

Best wishes for the continued success of Nomad,”

Barbara and Roger Wharton, Removal to Evia, Greece, August 2010

“Nomad moved us to Italy in October of last year, and we have just been able to move into our restored home. We have only just unpacked and wanted to let you know we had absolutely NO breakages and just wanted to thank your team for an excellent and stress free service. We will be more than happy to recommend you at any time. Your team was more than helpful and arranged a van to our rental address as the lane was too tight for the lorry, all carried out smoothly!!

Thanks again.”

<p><strong>Emma and Matt Malkin, Removal to Macerata, Italy, 2009 (Testimonial July 2010)</strong></p>

“Knowing we had not shipped possessions to a foreign country before, Nomad led us gently and professionally through the procedures, taking the stress out of the entire process. They collected and delivered on time in both the UK and Greece at times convenient to us and were unfailingingly courteous and helpful.”

Mr JL, Removal to the Peloponnese, Greece, March 2010

“We would highly recommend Nomad International Taliesen was extremely helpful when we enquired about their services even to the point of working out how large the vehicle needed to be. We were asked what dates and times were best for us both for the collection in Rhodes and the delivery in Cardiff and the people arrived EXACTLY on time (amazing if you know the roads in Rhodes and the M4 for Cardiff!).

We found everyone to be professional, helpful and thoughtful, they treated everything with care as if it were their own. They understand that a removal of this kind will be stressful and were amazingly understanding at me being a bit emotional at times (including when I burst into tears saying goodbye to a friend – very diplomatically not noticing!).

They were recommended to me and I would certainly recommend them to anyone moving abroad or relocating back to Britain. We felt confident at all times that everything was in good hands and were kept informed of what was happening all through the process.”

<p><strong>Maria Skye, Removal from Rhodes, Greece to Cardiff, UK, February 2010</strong></p>

“I am writing to let you know that all our furniture etc was picked up from Maidenhead, superbly packed by Jay and his team and arrived in good shape in Crete where it was unloaded carefully and cheerfully by the team there. I found your service excellent and i would not hesitate in recommending your company. Many thanks.”

<p><strong>Sue Smart - Removal to Crete, Greece</strong></p>

“We are more than satisfied with the service we’ve received from Nomad International and would not hesitate to use them again. All our questions were answered quickly and they were always at the other end of the ‘phone to offer sound advice and helpful suggestions when needed. Our move to Greece went extremely smoothly from start to finish and all our furniture and personal belongings arrived without any damage at all. I would certainly recommend Nomad International to anyone looking for a really friendly and very professional removal firm. Very competetive prices too!”

Mrs L Burlace, Removal to Kalymnos, Greece, February 2010

“This is just a note to say a big thank you for the transportation of our goods from our home in Essex to the basement of our home in Crete. We were delighted when we arrived back in Crete to find everything where we wanted it and all in perfect condition.

We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone needing removals between these two countries. Many thanks.”

Celia Alawi, Removal to Crete, Greece, April 2010

“I would like to thank Nomad for the excellent service we received in having our goods delivered to Corfu from England. All our boxes arrived intact and with no breakages. We would like to give special thanks to Mark who delivered our goods in Corfu. He kept us informed by telephone when he would be arriving and once with us he did not stopped until all the boxes were unloaded and taken into our house making the delivery stress free.

We would certainly recommend Nomad to anyone considering a move to Europe. Thank you once again for the excellent service.”

Geoff and Kath Smith, Removal to Corfu, Greece, March 2010

“Just a quick email to say thank you for a truly fabulous service.

Our furniture and belongings arrived on Saturday as promised and all in one piece (except for one broken dish which is likely my fault as I didn”t pack it well enough!). Considering the snow in England and throughout Europe, not to mention the Greek farmers protesting and striking – it is wonderful that we were only one day behind schedule. Though Dave did say he had driven half the night to make sure he missed the problems between Thessaloniki and Keramoti. So big thanks to him for this!

Dave and Mark were fabulous guys and carried our boxes up the stairs as if they were full of feathers instead of books, DVDs etc etc! They were laughing and saying the lads in England were wimps as they had said the boxes were heavy!! You have some fantatsic staff on both sides of the Channel – a credit to your company. Please thank them all from us.

I will have no hesitation in recommending Nomad to anyone I hear of that is relocating to Greece. A 5 star service from start to finish!!”

<p><strong>Tracey Agg, Removal to Thassos, Greece, January 2010</strong></p>

“I bought a world war two ex-British army motorbike through eBay , and enlisted the services of Nomad International to ship it to the UK for me from its owner in Crete. It can be imagined how much trust was at stake in transporting such an item. My bike arrived in Peterborough without so much as a scratch, and I am soundly impressed by the professionalism of the company. I would unreservedly recomend them to anyone. My thanks and gratitude to all at Nomad International.”

<p><strong>Leif Evans, Removal from Crete, Greece, January 2010</strong></p>

“Nomad removals are the BEST, after searching for a removal company on the web and indeed speaking with various companies, I finally spoke with Nomad who not only put my mind at rest but helped me move from France to Crete without any fuss. They were and still are positive from beginning to end, nothing is too much trouble, and prices are very competitive. I would thoroughly recommend their services and have passed their details on to several other people.”

<p><strong>Jan Colson, Removal to Crete, Greece, January 2010</strong></p>

“Let me say, I was absolutely delighted with Nomad from the start. I managed, with Nomad”s help to literally ship out everything including the kitchen sink!!

I shipped out a full flat-packed kitchen, including appliances/worktops etc along with a full balcony suite of furniture including 4 x loungers/ a glass dining table (which was huge AND heavy!) along with 6 x chairs. Above this, I sent out a designer Italian lounge suite in soft leather, and for that matter my own extra aircon unit. In total it was 3 x pallets full with a huge volume in cubic feet. AND a lot of this was fragile to say the least.

Goods arrived at my village bang on time in smaller truck (to negotiate winding roads easier, as per my request) with a 3 “man” UK crew. They were a marvel – worked like ants, placed all items where I requested – basically stars!!!

Damages – it was bound to happen, and it did ( 2 x Ikea tumblers from a six pack, costing not a lot!!!!) That was it.

In short, really pleased. Service = excellent. Easy to talk to factor = excellent. Would I use Nomad again for shiping to Crete??? YES!!!!”

<p><strong>Mr O, Removal to Crete, Greece, December 2009</strong></p>

“Just a line to say thank you for the excellent service you offered with our recent move to Crete. The service was efficient, reliable and inexpensive.

As promised, Dave telephoned me a couple of days prior to delivery and met me at the appointed time and place in our village. After directing him to the end of a long pathway, by the time I had parked my car and walked to my house, he and George had started unloading and within 20 minutes the whole job was done.

Both my wife and I were thoroughly impressed by the professionalism shown by both Dave and George and would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone wishing to move items to or from Crete. Thank you once again for the excellent service.”

Dick Whittering, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2009

<p><strong>Dick Whittering, Removal to Crete, Greece, November 2009</strong></p>

“Both Lynn and I wanted to say thanks for the speed and efficiency of our move to Greece back in September. After several weeks, we”ve had a chance to test everything thoroughly and all our possessions (including computer and external hard disks) made it through the journey in excellent condition.

I also have to praise the lads who managed our collection so smoothly and efficiently, and particularly the guys who did the delivery here in Greece, managing both our horrendous parking conditions and the tiny lift up to our flat with aplomb (not to mention one of them hauling our exercise bike up four flights of stairs!).

Basically, we approached the whole move late and in the worst way possible, making a horrendous job for ourselves. Having left ourselves utterly frayed and worn out, we needed someone to just come in and handle the move without fuss and with maximum efficiency.

Nomad did that for us, and with a smile to boot. Many thanks.”

<p><strong>Matt Brooker &amp; Lynn Fotheringham, Removal to Thessaloniki, Greece, September 2009</strong></p>

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Nomad for the very professional way our removal to Crete was handled. From my first telephone call everyone was very helpful, the UK team and the international team were efficient, helpful and friendly there was not a hitch of any kind. Plus for this good service the price was surprisingly low. Many thanks again.”

<p><strong>Anna Lewis, Removal to Crete, October 2009</strong></p>

“To all at Nomad, We would like to let everyone know that you are a fantastic company. Efficiency is second to none. We had never done anything on this scale before and were naturally very anxious. Well we certainly picked the right company to take away our anxieties. The lads both in England and Zante were polite, helpful, hardworking and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble. We were kept informed of everything. It is indeed useful to know that if you need anything else taken out (large or small) this can be done. Needless to say your company will be the first on our list in future ventures and to recommend to anyone else. Best of luck for the future. Best regards.”

<p><strong>Dennis and Diane Pearson, Removal to Zante, Greece, May 2009</strong></p>

“Just a note to say thank you for all the help you gave us when you moved us to Rhodes. The service was quick and professional. Your staff were well-mannered and also very careful with our furniture and personal possessions. You took a lot of the stress out of moving to Rhodes.

Again I would like to say a big thank you and I would recommend Nomad to anyone thinking of moving abroad.”

Geof & Sue Baker, Removal to Rhodes, Greece, July 2009

“I had 12 large boxes shipped back from Crete. From the first telephone call I found the service responsive and friendly – totally customer focussed. I was kept informed of progress all the way through the process. I found Nomad efficient and very reasonably priced. I would certainly use them again.”

<p><strong>Aly Dickinson, Removal to Crete, Greece, July 2009</strong></p>

“Just a short note to say thank you to Nomad for taking care of our move to Kefalonia. Moving house is always stressful, but moving to another country is even more so. From the initial quote to the move itself we were very reassured by your confident approach and attention to detail. Dave was great and gave us lots of useful tips and information. Being a (British expat) Greek resident himself meant he was extremely knowledgeable about everything from registering with the nearest Consulate, to the local wildlife!

We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anybody wishing to move to Greece.

Thanks once again for all your help. Best regards,”

<p><strong>Janet Jones, Removal to Kefalonia, Greece, June 2009</strong></p>

“Our house is in a small hamlet half-way up a hill in Umbria. 400 yards short of the street there is a single-track elbow bend that has to be seen to be believed. Without the service provided by Nomad, and the wee van, we would never have managed to get our furniture over. The whole service from start to finish including packing and delivery was first class. So much so that we will be back to Nomad in September to move the rest of our belongings over. Thanks Taliesen and everyone at Nomad.”

<p><strong>Ross McLeod, Removal to Umbria, Italy, March 2009</strong></p>

“We used Nomad for our move from Manchester to Kefalonia in April 2009. We had never used them before and were a bit nervous about sending all our belongings off with an unknown company to a foreign country! The guys arrived to pick up our boxes and flat-packs at exactly the right time on the agreed date, organised and recorded everything efficiently and off they went. We had several sleepless nights, imagining that things would get damaged or lost en route but… on the agreed day, everything arrived intact! Not a single item damaged and every piece accounted for. Good value for money, efficient and pleasant service in both the UK and Greece AND a company willing to transport whole house furniture or the odd box. We will definitely use Nomad again if we want to bring out any more items from the UK.”

Grant Pedrick, Removal to Kefalonia, Greece, April 2009

“Just a note to say thanks a lot to Nomad for the excellent service in moving our personal effects from UK to Kefalas, Crete. From the moment I first contacted you company your staff were courteous and efficient. During the collection and delivery your staff displayed a similar efficiency. The goods arrived and were delivered to our house here a few days before we arrived and your staff assisted in storing them inside the house. Everything arrived safe and sound and the only breakage was a small plate packed by myself!! I will have no hesitation in recommending Nomad in the future.”

Don Middleton, Removal to Crete, Greece, March 2009

“I recently moved to a mountain village in northern Italy. I was very lucky to be told about Nomad International. They collected my furniture from Somerset and despite heavy snow on route 2 weeks later the lorry arrived in my nearest town. With the little lorry they were able to bring my furniture to the door. David was extermely helpful and the whole process was achieved with no stress whatsoever. An excellent service.”

Belinda Hicks, Removal to Tuscany, Italy, January 2009

“Just wanted to say thank you to Nomad for the collection/storage/delivery of our stuff. We were very pleased with the service provided as our belongings were packed and stored in Crete and later delivered to Umbria in Italy, whilst we returned to the UK. So potential there for some anxiety. Taliesen was kind and reassuring throughout. The packers Mark & John did a fast competent job in Crete. The arrival of our things in Italy was a great relief to us and Dave was marvellous. We live on the third floor and he carried everything up on a hot evening and kept his good humour throughout. So a special thanks to him.

We will recommend Nomad to our friends.”

Ann & Richard Freeman, Removal to Umbria, Italy, October 2008

“Just a few lines to thank you for making our move to Chania so hassle-free. The arrival of our furniture was on time, and was done very professionaly by your friendly team with nothing damaged. Again many thanks and we will not hesitate to recommend Nomad International to anyone.”

“I would like to thank you for your help and cooperation in the recent move of our belongings from Crete to the United Kingdom.

We would not hesitate to recommend your company and would use your services again in the future. Thanks again.”

“A big thanks to NOMAD for delivery of all my furniture to my house in Tilos, Greece. It was a door-to-door delivery from Cardiff in June 2008 and have to say I was a bit worried if it would happen!! I had one month to prepare (my deadline!!) and NOMAD were very reassuring that I could do it!!

And I did!! It all arrived safely (beautifully wrapped) with great communication from Dave in Athens about times etc. A special thanks to Leigh and Tal for their prompt responses to my (many!) telephone calls and their reassurances that it would all happen. And it did!!!!

Please use this company!!!!.”

Story of my day beds!! (A.K.A. the Mamma Mia experience!!)

“Three day-beds were meant to arrive in June but did not!! (Not NOMAD’s fault. The supplier in the UK did not deliver them in time). I contacted NOMAD with the saga (again and again!!) and they were fantastic and very understanding. In order to avoid a second delivery cost, Dave in Athens put them on ferry to Tilos without a driver but clearly labelled for me in Tilos (15 pieces!!) when I was in Tilos in September 2008.

I unfortunately missed the boat in the morning and arrived at the quay to my see day beds leave for their own mini cruise to Rhodes and return to Tilos that evening (phew!!), but good labeling from NOMAD made it happen!! Myself and friends did the Mamma Mia experience (though did not jump into the water!!). See photos to prove NOMAD really can make it happen!

Book NOMAD!!!!!!”

“I have to say ‘Thankyou’ for a superb service in transporting our furniture from the UK to Skiathos. The whole exercise went like clock-work with nothing lost, nothing marked and nothing broken-brilliant. Tom, Jay and Charlie did a superb job in packing and loading, and nothing was too much trouble for Russell and Allastair, who had to contend with a very difficult approach to our house in Skiathos. Well Done !”

“Reference to our recent move to Crete we would like to thank you for your services of transporting our furniture and personal items to the storage here. We were told by by Neda the estate agents who met the delivery team that it was professionally done. We are now in an unfurnished apartment whereby we have unpacked our belongings and we have found everything intact and all the boxes were not even dented. We would certainly recommend you to anyone wishing to move.”

“Just wanted to send a quick e-mail to express our appreciation and gratitude for the excellent service provided by your company. Moving house and particularly moving to another country can be a stressfull undertaking, but your efficiency and excellent customer service removed any fears we may have had. The three gentlemen who delivered the goods were first class, polite and efficient. Crete is not the easiest island to deliver to given the quality of the roads and under the circumstances did an excellent job. Please can you pass on our thanks to all those involved. We will not hesitate to recommend your company to others wishing to move to Greece.”

Steve & Bernadette Bilney - Removal to Agios Nikolaos, Crete, Greece

“Many thanks for your help with our recent move from Hamburg to Rhodes. We would particularly like to thank Russell and Jon who kept us informed of the progress of our goods throughout, and managed the delivery to our new house exactly on time, which is no mean feat considering we live in the centre of the old town. Best regards.”

Andrew & Penny Chladeck - Removal to Crete, Greece

“I had planned to wait until all the boxes are unpacked before writing, but – although all the fragile ones are still sealed, and will remain so for the next few weeks – I felt I must write to thank you, and all those involved, for their good work. We have moved house many times (double figures), both here and abroad, so have some considerable experience of removal companies. We can both say with no hesitation whatsoever, that Nomad are – by far – the best: more efficient, more friendly, more patient, more helpfull, more personal. We were impressed by the care taken with our possessions (and I”m sure, when we eventually unpack them all that this opinion will be reinforced). The lads both loading and unloading deserve our grateful thanks. Once more, thankyou. We will continue mentioning your name in glowing terms to all and sundry!”
