transport & storage
- Transporting bulky or heavy items to Madeira has become a much more difficult task since the Armas ferry from Portimao stopped docking at Funchal in early 2012. After that everything had to “containerised”, or more expensively air-freighted.
- If you plan to have the exclusive use of a 20ft or 40ft container then shipment directly to Madeira can be arranged from any location. However if you want to send a “part-load” from Europe we can organise shipment through specialist companies who freight by road to mainland Portugal and then across to Madeira Island (typically every 14-21 days). They will collect, package and document the part-load and deliver it to an address you specify in Madeira.
- We are currently seeking to expand our storage facilities in Funchal to accommodate anything from a frequent visitor wanting to keep a set of golf clubs to somebody moving their house contents to or from Madeira
