UK expats moving back to Spain

Some news outlets have suggested the number of people moving to Spain from the UK has dropped, but insiders and experts have been quick to disagree. It seems the combination of low Spanish housing prices and the pound to euro exchange rate is increasing interest. A short plane journey and great weather have always made it a hotspot destination for people of all ages and walks of life. This is the opinion held by UK removal experts Nick’s Removals, who recently announced both the number of UK to Spain enquiries and actual moves have gone up in 2015 and show no signs of decreasing. The company is happy to offer the same low prices and customer-focused service that has built them a remarkable reputation in the removals industry.

Spain Moves on the up

“The Spanish dream for the UK expat is well and truly alive and many have not latched on to the negative press but have seen the potential for a great warm outdoor life in Spain still alive” commented Nick Willis from Nick’s Removals. “Our company helps brings those dreams to life in a way that’s cost efficient and effective.”

According to Nick, in addition to low property prices and an abundance of properties left after the housing crash. He feels other factors like the favorable exchange rate between pound and the Euro, and the cheap short flights from the UK to Spain has also encouraged these trends.

The company’s moves occur door to door from the UK to anywhere in Spain. Nick’s Removals canSpanish removals handle any size moves, cars, boats and motor bikes and have some of the lowest UK to Spain removal rates in the world.

The response from clients has been very enthusiastic.

Declutter downsize when moving home

Moving Home: Declutter and Downsize

Well, it’s that time in your life; you’re moving home. This is an opportunity to start fresh and create a new environment for yourself, but moving is a hard and tedious task for anyone. No one likes to pack everything up in boxes, unload the boxes, unpack the boxes, and then place everything in its designated area especially when you have way too much stuff you probably don’t even need. After the move you always end up with lost or broken items, boxes that never seem to get unpacked, and hours of lost time and energy. Wouldn’t it be easier if there were tips and tricks on how to prepare youbefore the move? You are about to learn a few easy steps on how to: declutter, downsize, and get rid of unwanted belongings when moving home.

Let’s take a look at some of the things you can eliminate immediately. Search for what is called the “low hanging fruit” in your home. Some of these things might include:

  • Clothes that do not fit or that do not appeal to you any more.
  • Expired foods, medicines, etc.
  • Old paperwork you will never need to use again.
  • Old magazines, newspapers, and books.
  • Almost empty bottles of shampoo, hairspray, deodorant, etc.
  • Things that do not fit into your lifestyle any more.
  • Phone chargers, cords, or cables that are outdated.

Go round each room of the house with a bin bag emptying draws shelves and any areas where stuff accumulates which you just do not need. A good tip to remember is: if you haven’t used it in the past six months, get rid of it. Try not to buy products in bulk before your move. It makes your job harder and you either loose useful household products or have to lug them around with you; neither of those are good options. Once you have made a neat stack (or in some cases, a messy pile) out of your useless items decide what to donate and what to sell. By getting rid of all of your unwanted belongings, you save tons of space for new items you will actually use.

That includes hauling a student’s clobber from University room to parents’ house, helping with household clearance, multi drop large parcel services, transporting flat pack boxes, moving office furniture and delivering large, heavy or bulky items sold or won on eBay.

Using a man and van service for larger eBay collections and deliveries is the simple and easy way to get furniture, larger bits and pieces or bulk orders like sofas, wardrobes and beds delivered to your home or taken to the winning bidder. You don’t need to pay an expensive courier company, nor even go to the time and expense of hiring a van yourself for a day. No days off work, no lost directions, no worries about having to find a friend to help you shift the item.
