Moving companies in Barcelona

Written by Paula

Moving homes can be very stressful. Having to sort through your things to see what is essential and what can be left behind, packing every single item and organizing can really wear you out. If you are thinking of moving to Barcelona or within Barcelona, here are some of the moving companies that can lend you a hand.

Anyvan is not a moving company per se, but rather a website that works in a similar way that Skyscanner or Kayak work for searching flights, and the same way Trivago works for looking for and booking hotel rooms. If you go their website, you will have the option of filling a form that describes the general terms of your moving process. The website’s search engine will present you with a number of prices offered by different moving companies so that you can choose the deal that best suits you. Anyvan is not useful only for people who are moving homes, it is also useful for people who want to send packages or transport heavier, larger items like cars, motorcycles, and pianos.


Servimudanzas is a company that has been operational for over 20 years, with five locations in Spain: Barcelona, Sant Cugat del Vallès, Marbella, Málaga and Zaragoza. The process to learn the cost of your moving with Servimudanzas goes like this: you make a call and describe your moving needs, and then, someone from the company will pay you a visit to have a better idea of what you will be taking when you move. The price will also depend on if you are planning on packing the items yourself or if you would prefer Servimudanzas to do it. The company also has storages available for those who need to leave but can’t move their items elsewhere immediately.

Servimudanzas is located at Passeig Francesc Macià, 64, 08173, Sant Cugat del Vallès.
