Leading UK Removals Company Nick’s Removals Announces Number of UK to Spain Enquiries Increasing Weekly

removals to spain
UK expats moving back to Spain

The Spanish dream for UK expats seems far from over. Leading UK and European moving company Nick’s Removals recently reported the number of UK to Spain moves and enquiries they have handled has been on the rise, with no sign of slowing down.

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.

Helen C, from London, recently said, “I used Nick’s to move us from London to Barcelona. The experience was really wonderful. All of our possessions were delivered no problems at all and the price was wonderful. Five stars and fully recommended” removals to Spain from the UK are on the up.

Tips For Moving Wіth Children

Make no mistake, moving іntо а nеw home whether an apartment or house саn bе tough. There’s а nеw area tо gеt usеd tо (оr а whоlе nеw city or town entirely!), nеw roads, bus routes tо learn, figuring оut whеrе аll оf thе dіffеrеnt shops аrе … It’s hard еnоugh tо dо whеn you’re bу уоursеlf, but whеn уоu bring kids іntо thе reckoning, moving саn bесоmе аn еvеn greater challenge.

Changing schools, leaving bеhіnd friends аnd classmates, gіvіng uр familiar habits, аnd living іn а brand nеw setting саn bе vеrу difficult fоr mаnу children. Веfоrе moving wіth kids іntо уоur nеw home, wе’vе рut tоgеthеr а quick moving checklist tо help mаkе уоur move іntо а nеw home аs smooth аs роssіblе bоth fоr уоu аnd уоur children.

Before the Move:

Tell уоur children аbоut thе imminent house move аs sооn аs уоu саn. Тhе mоrе time thеу hаvе tо gеt usеd tо thе idea оf moving home, thе easier іt will bе fоr thеm whеn thе big day finally arrives.

Involve уоur children аs early аs роssіblе, Іf уоu gіvе thеm specific tasks tо dо early оn іn thе moving process. Yоu саn help уоur children hаvе а sense оf control оvеr thіs роtеntіаllу daunting situation. Аs аn example, уоu соuld lеt thеm participate іn thе house hunting process by gеttіng thеіr opinions оn thе pros аnd cons оf thе dіffеrеnt houses and areas thаt уоu lооk at.

Take а tour оf thе nеw area with the kids and point out places that will be of interest to them . Веfоrе уоu move іn, tаkе уоur children tо уоur nеw house аnd explore thе nеw area tоgеthеr. Lеt thеm sее thе local parks, schools, shops, еtс., аs knowing аbоut thеsе places ahead оf time will help ease thеіr worries оf thе unknown (аnd роssіblу еvеn mаkе thеm lооk forward tо visiting thеsе cool nеw places оn а regular basis оnсе you’re аll moved in!).

Put tоgеthеr а friends list. Whеn moving wіth young children, leaving bеhіnd thеіr оld school аnd friends іs реrhарs thе hardest раrt оf thе entire process. То help ease thе transition, help уоur children prepare а list оf phone numbers even email addresses оf аll оf thеіr close friends аnd relatives. In this age it is easier to keep in touch with instant digital communication. Knowing thаt thеу саn stay іn touch wіth thе іmроrtаnt people іn thеіr lives. Evеn whеn they’re іn thе nеw home іs а vеrу іmроrtаnt раrt оf а successful move.

Moving home with kids
Children need reassurance when moving to a new home

During thе Move:

Involve the kids іn thе packing let them pack their belongings. Packing саn bе а tedious process аt thе best оf times so let them help. То mаkе thе whоlе exercise а lіttlе mоrе fun fоr еvеrуbоdу, уоu саn hаvе уоur kids decorate thе boxes соntаіnіng thеіr things labelling the boxes with their rooms. Аs аn аddеd bonus, dоіng sо will аlsо mаkе finding thеіr things easier оnсе you’re аt thе nеw home!

Don’t pack uр еvеrуthіng, It’s іmроrtаnt thаt уоu dоn’t pack аwау the kids favourite things bеfоrе thе big move. Important items to them suсh аs game stations, stuffed animals, books, еtс., shоuld bе рlасеd іn а separate box thаt саn bе tаkеn іn thе car wіth thе kids. Тhіs wау, thе kids gеt peace оf mind knowing thаt thеіr favourite things wоn’t gеt lost оr left behind.

Stay positive. Whеn moving wіth children, it’s vеrу іmроrtаnt tо stay upbeat аnd calm during this stressful time. Yоur оwn mood will greatly impact thе mood оf the children – іf уоu hate moving, chances аrе thеу will, too.

After thе Move:

Don’t spend аll оf уоur time unpacking. Yеs, уоu’ll nееd tо gеt аll оf thоsе essential items оut оf thе boxes аs sооn аs роssіblе, but trу tо spread thе unpacking process оut оvеr а fеw days, іf роssіblе. Fоr mоst kids, unpacking іs boring – thеу will wаnt tо explore the new home! It’s іmроrtаnt tо рut dоwn thе boxes аnd tаkе thе time tо rеаllу explore уоur nеw neighborhood аnd spend time wіth уоur family. Gо fоr а walk, check оut thе nearby shops аnd restaurants, relax аt thе park … hоw уоu spend thіs time іs uр tо you.

Get your children involved in the process. Gіvе уоur children а chance tо input ideas whеn you’re settling іn tо уоur nеw home. Openly аsk fоr thеіr ideas, еsресіаllу whеn choosing items fоr thеіr rooms оr deciding оn thе layout оf thе new home. Іf thеу feel thаt thеу’vе helped “create” thе nеw home, уоur kids will bе mоrе inclined tо thіnk оf іt аs thеіr nеw hоmе іnstеаd оf а scary, unknown place.

Try tо maintain daily habits. Whіlе children аrе adjusting tо nеw homes, neighborhoods, аnd schools, parents саn provide sоmе comfort bу keeping sоmе things thе sаmе. Fоr instance, hаvіng thе sаmе morning аnd bedtime routines, meal times, еtс. mіght bе extremely comforting, еsресіаllу fоr younger children.

Above аll, listen. Regularly аsk hоw things аrе going fоr thеm аt thе nеw home. Ѕоmе kids hаvе а hard time opening up, spending sоmе relaxed time tоgеthеr mау help bring uр whаtеvеr іs оn thеіr minds. Moving home with kids is a vital time in their lives and needs a lot of attention during the move but especially afterwards. Help them settle in their new environment.

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.

Moving Home with Bad Back how to lift heavy boxes

Moving home is already a hard task to do alone but it is a more difficult task if you have a bad back. People get hurt because they lift stuff the wrong way. But even if you are lifting boxes correctly, you can still hurt yourself if you have a weak back.

Low back pain has made people miss work at some point of their life. Moving heavy items can break bones, tear ligaments, and strain muscles. The injuries can result to weeks or even months out of work.

Moving home is much easier if you hire a removal company for the job. They will do all the heavy lifting for you, and they will ensure the safety and security of the items during the move. Here are some of the benefits that you get when you book a removal company.

Lift boxes correctly to avoid injury to your back

A removal company knows how to pack things the right way so that the items will not be damaged during the move. They ensure that the items arrive at the destination in one piece and on time.

If you try doing things alone, you will not only strain your back but also there’s likelihood that an item will be destroyed during the move. Professional movers know how the method of lifting boxes correctly. They are careful to avoid any loss during the transit of the items.

Removal companies also have the right van for the job. There is no need to make several trips to move all the items from the old location to the new destination. It is the cost effective way of moving home. You’ll end up wasting gas if you make a move on your own.

Moving companies plan all the logistics of the relocation that will save you time and effort. No need to strain your back during the process. They will take care of everything and help you settle into your new home.

The professional movers will not only be lifting boxes correctly; they will also use their experience and knowledge to make the job take as little time as possible. They will reduce the transit time and complete the move on time.

Removal companies can schedule the arrival and departure of their movers at the convenience of the customer. That way the move can be planned according to your availability and don’t need to take time off work or other activities.

Heavy furniture and appliances are the hardest to move, especially for people with the bad back. The movers know the proper technique to move them with scratching the furniture as well as the floor or walls of the home. You don’t need to worry about anything while moving home.

You don’t have to risk injuring your bad back while moving home. Removal companies can help make the transit fast and injury-free.
If you do find yourself with a bad back check the advice on NHS Back pain page.

What are the fees cost of moving home

Moving home can be a very expensive and stressful process keeping on top of the costs one of the main areas of stress. It’s easy to let this part of the of the moving process raise further than it has to paying solicitors fees and estate agents are unavoidable but still negotiable! So always ask for discount and whether that is their best price, do not be afraid to ask this is your hard earned money.

One area you can save money is by hiring a man and van service to do the actual moving The cost of moving homeof your belongings rather than a full blown removal company who will charge a lot more than a smaller man and van company. Most man and van companies offer more than one man so will be able to provide a team of moving porters if needed. When looking for a man and van try and get one from recommendation and look for reviews online book with an established company who will have years of experience moving furniture and not with one that is “doing it between jobs” on moving day you will need experienced moving men handling your furniture and possessions.

You will find the only people who actual do any physical hard work for the money you pay during your relocation is the removal men.

•             Solicitors fees: when a property is bought or sold, the legal ownership sometimes called the title deeds must transfer from the seller to the buyer the process is known as conveyance.

•             Valuation fees: this is carried out on behalf of the mortgage lender even however you may have to pay for it. Most lenders charge valuation fees and the cost depends on the value of your property.

•             Searches: this is when your conveyance requests information from the local authority to confirm details about any planned developments that may affect the property. Searches are carried out to determine any additional information about a property that often isn’t evident initially. The fees for searches should come within the cost of the conveyance.

•             Stamp duty: If you’re buying a home, you are going to be taxed. And that tax is known as stamp duty after the official stamps that used to certify payment. At the time of writing if you buy property for more than £125,000, you pay Stamp Duty Land Tax of between 1% and 7% on the whole purchase price.

•             Removals: The physical process of moving all your belongings form your old place to your new home. Some people go the DIY route of hiring a van themselves other let professional removal companies or man and van services take the burden. These are the only people who get paid for physical labour.

•             Insurance: You now own a new home, so it is crucial to protect it, and also all your belongings. Household insurance is divided into two parts, buildings insurance and contents insurance. They can be purchased individually; some insurance companies offer a single policy cover for both which can save you money. Buildings Insurance provides cover for the property itself, such as kitchen and bathroom fittings and running water. It also provides cover for events such as fire, flood or even subsidence. Contents Insurance insures all your possessions inside your home. It’s up to you just what your insurance policy covers and the insurance quote will depends on how much it covers.

There is a lot of resources on the internet comparing lots of the associated costs with moving home most of these compare sites are getting a commission from you when you use their sites so they are useful for finding the supplier then go direct and get the discount yourself

Advice when Moving home in Manchester

When you get a new house, you go through a whole tumult of emotions; excitement (new house is a new adventure), elation (the new house is great), pride (the feeling that comes with knowing you can afford a new house), nervousness (most people don’t like to admit it but there is a little fear and nervousness of what our new neighbourhood will be like and how your life there will play out) and well, a lot of annoyance when you consider that you have to pack up all your stuff and move to a new house. Moving can be very difficult and stressful and if you LIKE the process of moving; you’re the only one in the world. In this article, we will be offering you tips to make the process of moving less difficult and cumbersome. removals manchester

The first thing to consider of course is the preparation you put in for “moving day” do it right and moving day will just be stressful, not frustrating and never ending. There are a lot of things to do when preparing to move, you have to set up a system for forwarding your mails, change over your utilities, find packing supplies etcetera. Moving day, and the few days after ward when you’ll be unpacking, is really the easy part of a move. Good preparation is key to ensuring that everything goes smoothly. It might take your time and seem more detailed than a move should warrant, but a good preparation plan will make your move a lot simpler and less stressful.

Before making the move, you should find out all the utilities that you are responsible for and make the necessary transfers. The earlier you call for this service the better because some utility companies will not make it out to you if you call them on short notice. Another option available to you is to fill out your change of address form on line. If you do fill out a change of address form on line, you need to ensure that the credit card you use as your billing address contains your current address, because this is how the postal service will verify your request.

Moving involves using quite a number of packing supplies, boxes, tapes, and the likes. It will be relatively easy to buy these things but it will cost you a surprising amount of money, not a huge amount, just a surprising figure. You can limit this additional cost by figuring out places where you can get boxes for free. The best places to go for free boxes, contrary to popular opinion is not actually retail stores but furniture stores. Sure, your local retailer may be able to provide you with some used boxes for free but a furniture store will offer you a larger range of sizes and varieties of boxes. Make sure you call the furniture store up at least a week before you’re ready to start moving. The furniture company probably does not dispose of boxes on a daily basis. Another way to get free boxes is getting the boxes from your friends if they are moving before you. Depending on where you work, you could also get boxes from the office or ask a friend to help you get boxes from their office. Don’t be shy to ask for boxes, everyone moves eventually so most people will be nice about it.small load-car

Take time out to properly measure your new place to sure that everything will fit in where it is supposed to, do not assume. The next step is to get a moving company. You might be tempted to save cost by going the DIY route, but let’s face it, these guys are pro’s for a reason. They handle all you’re moving with a minimum of stress on your sides and are really not that expensive. When selecting the removal company, ensure you do your due diligence and select a company with a stellar reputation.

Packing is often the least favourite part of moving, it is time consuming and remembering that you’ll have to unpack in a few days? It just depresses me. It is necessary though, so while packing ensure you sort out what belongings are supposed to be where so you don’t end up in chaos. It pays to be organised so categorize everything. It’s okay to be a little neurotic about ensuring that everything is in its place, better a little neurosis now than chugging aspirins to fight a stress induced headache later.

If you took the time to prepare for your move, then moving in and unpacking shouldn’t be difficult. Of course you still have unpacking all those boxes to look forward to but hey, you’re all moved into your new house. The processes around packing, moving and unpacking can be daunting so feel free to have friends help you out. Even superman had help moving to Earth!

They might be the curse of your move, the removal boxes. You have to figure out how many you removal boxesneed. Shell out more money than you think to buy them, put them together, and then find out how to get rid of them when you’re finished. Do not worry this guide will assist you with all things removal boxes to make your encounter with removal boxes easy and hassle free.

Removal Boxes The corrugated boxes that are used for moving home are not all made with the same quality and same material. They are not just the ordinary standard boxes that you see in many shops although some that you can get for free are more than adequate. Like the trusty banana box which can be used for an assorted number of house

hold items it is the best box you can get and is easy to carry and hard to overload. It can be very tempting to use the cheap removal boxes and packing supplies on the market. The quality of boxes and packing aids like tape with a tape dispenser, bubble wrap that you use will probably have a big impact on keeping your items safe and secure throughout the move or in a storage unit. If feasible, try to choose only removal boxes that are specifically made to be used for moving home if you are going to acquire your own boxes for free try not to use crisp boxes.

What makes moving boxes different from other removal boxes is that they are made especially for loading and unloading items onto a removal van. Proficient removal companies use standard sizes boxes to help them plan effective use of their van room. Their understanding helps them establish how many moving boxes and the type of boxes that will be required to complete your house flat or room move. Then from this information we can decide how best to pack these boxes horizontally and vertically onto the removal van. If you use your own acquired boxes, the removal company will have to do their best to try to make things pack right in the van so they do not move around during transit and damage any items.

Preparation is the key to a successful move.

Complete an inventory of what you have to pack so you can get an idea of the sort and number of items that you need to move you can also use this inventory for getting a removal quote from a moving company. You can buy moving kits that provide the right amount of removal boxes and moving supplies for your move for example a moving pack for a four bed roomed house or one bedroom flat these packs are not has accurate as using and itemised list to order your boxes you may be left with excess boxes and packing materials.

Removal box makers produced numerous types of boxes, specially designed for moving household items.
Medium removal Boxes these are trade standard boxes that are adaptable and can be used for a number of general household items. You can use these boxes to pack books, collectibles, kitchenware and most of your other household items.

Large sized removal boxes are all-purpose moving boxes that can be packed with heavy items, but can still be carried easily. Medium sized removal boxes are best suited for a mix of some heavy household goods combined with some light items.

Extra large removal boxes are best suited for light goods such as bedding, drapes, towels and clothing that you do not place in a separate wardrobe box. Do not place too many items in a large moving box as it can become unwieldy to lift and carry.

Care should be taken packing Items in Your removal Boxes
The main cause of damage during a move comes from the shaking of objects inside your box during your move.
If you leave gaps between items inside the box or you have not properly wrapped or padded the items in paper or bubble wrap, you will leave space that produce movement of your items inside the box. If there is too much space, a abrupt bump could cause your items to knock against each other causing breakages or scratches. Use tape to seal boxes, packing paper or newspaper can be scrunched up and used as padding, and bubble wrap. You can even fill up boxes with clothes, blankets or pillows; you are giving more protection against shifting of items inside the boxes and packing away items. This small extra outlay up front can pay big dividends. Just a small number of damaged ornaments or other expensive items can create an expense greater than the cost of the extra packing materials.

When you are looking for removal boxes, you will see them offered in varied sizes I will try and explain most and give advice for what should be and can be packed in them. Wardrobe Boxes and usually the most expensive box and are perfect for clothing on hangers save clothes having to be ironed again and can also be used for dining room chairs, sporting equipment and tall awkward and bulky items, if you are moving locally these are a luxury.

You need more than just boxes when you move you also need packing tape, packing paper, bubble wrap, edge protectors, moving blankets, and even scissors, to name a few. Buying moving box kits usually supply all the extras needed so you never forget anything. You can also make to order your moving kit by ordering other materials individually. Get recycled eco friendly removal boxes they are no more expensive so lets all do are best for the environment, buy online removal cardboard boxes for your packing and moving needs. No trees are cut to produce our recyclable boxes. Make sure that all our removal boxes are sturdy so they can be used again helping further.

Over the past few years I have been regularly on a move, so I am always looking for suitable and robust remove boxes that can contain my belongings. The regular cardboard boxes that you can get from your local shop are the most evident and cheapest answer, but those are not the most suitable to carry around, and often come damaged in some way and fall apart when loaded. I’ve used some other brands of removal boxes, but often those are not the easiest ones to put together. Boxes and Bubbles boxes are made out of a single piece of cardboard, it requires just a handful of folding before it is completely assembled, and its rugged and sturdy design is supposed to protect even your most fragile and valuable belongings. The durable handle holes on the sides help with the carrying, and each box can pack a ample amount of stuff. These boxes are also very convenient for storage, and the smooth outside and the even form part enable one to economically stack several of these in the storage space. on the whole, as far as the removals and storing boxes go, these are probably some of the best
Moving to another home or another city or even another country, can be a massive task, requiring good organization, planning and the right moving boxes and packing supplies to ensure the move goes smoothly. How do you pack effectively? How do you ensure that you know where everything you packed is? What type of moving boxes and packing supplies do you need? The goal is to help you in all aspects of your moving with our packing boxes and packing supplies. How many moving boxes and what types of packing supplies do you need?
