Recommendations Wanted: Transport from Amsterdam to North of Spain. Dear digamigos I have about 3m3 of stuff which I would like to be picked up in Amsterdam (2 separately addresses) and moved to the North of Spain, Luarca, Asturias. The picking up should be in January. It does not matter when it then arrives in Luarca (if it needs to be stored by the transport company to go with a larger load). Looking forward to all your reactions, Julia, Luarca.
