Moving to Spain?

Moving to Spain


Our European Removals depot in Northfleet Kent has been analysing the locations that people have been relocating to in Europe. 

The most popular destination still seems to be Southern Spain, but there is growing interest in Southern France.
So why are people choosing these countries to live? In the case of moving to Spain it's very clear. Spain has the sunshine, along with a lively atmosphere and great food and culture. 

Popular destinations among Brit expats are Fuengirola in Malaga, along with Marbella, San Pedro, and Alicante. Though we often carry out commercial removals to Barcelona and Madrid where offices tend to have a Branch in the business districts. All these destinations have different atmospheres, so before deciding on a place to live make sure you visit as many locations as possible to get a feel for the areas. 

But make sure you visit at different times of the day! What may seem a tranquil idyllic retreat in the daytime can turn into a non-stop party environment in the night! As with all matters connected with a relocation to Spain, do your research, get recommendations, and practice due diligence.

As for the logistical process relating to UK Spain Removals, St Georges European have the experience, infrastructure, and expertise to guarantee you total peace of mind! Remember that there's no need to worry or get stressed about Spain removals.....because we can handle this aspect totally!

Removals Preparation

Removals Preparation


When it comes to house removals to Spain, you will need some advice whether you do it for the first time or the tenth time. House removals are no easy task and sometimes you will end up forgetting even the minutest detail.

For one thing, before you conduct your house removals you need to notify important people in your current neighborhood about your plans to uproot. Basic house removals protocol dictates that you inform service people such as the milkman and the newspaper guy that you will no longer need their services. Another important part of house removals protocol is informing utility companies such as gas, telephone, electric and banking and credit card company. You should tell them your change of address so they know where to forward the bills or terminate the service. And for course, you need to look around for a good house removals company to help you with packing up your belongings.

Most house removal firms will advise you that you should carefully label all your boxes according to the following criteria: destination rooms, contents of boxes and indicate if these are fragile items or not. House removals people will also have an easier time if you know which items you will be bringing with you and which ones will be given away or discarded. You might want to start weeding out your possessions before you call the house removals service crew as well.

Of course, before you expect the house removals to come, you need to be armed with the right kinds of packing supplies. A professional house removals person will give you a list of what you need such as boxes, all kinds of tape, wrapping papers and assorted plastics. Stickers and some easy to identify markers (in red) also do well, according to house removals personnel. One very important thing that a lot of house removals persons will tell you is to maintain a list of all the moving expenses – you need to track these down because some can also be tax deductible. House removals need not be very costly, and it is quite beneficial if you get to save a little bit of money here and there.

About to start loading? House removals personnel will tell you to keep the weight of your boxes manageable. If they are too heavy then it might cause some strain and might collapse. This is especially true in some house removals cases wherein the owners end up packing rubbish and clutter which they do not need anyway. Before moving day comes, you should clear out the stuff and just leave items you bring with you. If you do not, then the house removals men might end up shuttling old stuff you do not need into your new home. Be very clear about the directions so the movers will get to the new house on time. House removals can be a very easy task if you know all about these things. Keep track of everything in a notebook so you will always have something to refer to in print instead of keeping it all in your head.

European Relocation

 European Relocation


International relocation
is a tedious process and planning should be done in advance to handle all the issues related to it. Preparation is the key....so here are a few guidelines that should be helpful:

1. Documents: various documents are needed when one is relocating to a new country. Some essentials required by all countries are birth certificates, medical certificates, marriage certificates, immunization records, insurance papers and certain other records. All these documents must be complete and documents related to transfer such as a valid passport and visa must also be complete. The legalities can be taken care by a reputed travel agency.

2. Research: if the place of relocating is assigned by the employer, then it is recommended to do a comprehensive research of the city. If the house is provided by the company, then one can look into the neighborhood for utility services and nearby hospitals, banks, supermarkets, restaurants and such. Local maps and online guides can be used to gain information. One must also look into the laws of the country, the safety standards and other related issues.

3. Preparation: once the place and the area have been decided upon, there is a need to find a house, if not provided by the employer. As the person relocating is unaware of the new country and its ways, it is best to take help from the international relocation companies. These companies provide the necessary services related to international relocating and have adequately trained staff dedicated to the purpose. One can inform the company about his tastes and preferences regarding the overall design of the house, materials to be used, the space required, location and other such things.

4. Money: international relocation could be a costly affair. So there is a need to have large sums of money. The importance of international relocation services offered by various companies cannot be overlooked. They plan the relocation and work accordingly to coordinate and organize all the things. International relocation requires massive packing of all the household items. Hence the international relocation companies have to be put to use.

Selecting international relocation companies

The process of international relocation is a tedious and problematic task. There are so many things involved that one cannot think of doing them on his own. There is the need to take help from professionals in the field and they are the international relocation companies. However, the selection of a good and experienced company is the most important requisite. The international relocation companies should be selected on the basis of a few factors which are; reputation of the company, years of experience, international relocation services provided, cost quotient and various other factors.

Preparing for the move

Preparation of international relocation generally needs at least four weeks. The foremost thing is the packing of household articles which cannot be done solely, so it is best to assign the task to professional packers. This task can either be given to international movers or companies providing international relocation services. The equipments have to be packed with utmost care as they would be in transit for a long time and would be laden and un-laden quite a number of times. An important thing to note is that not all goods and electrical equipments can be moved.
The reason for this is that different countries operate on different voltage and plug sizes. Also the space in the new house is a limiting factor with regard to the furnishing that can be accommodated. So all left out equipments should be well taken care of and could be put up for sale. Other preparations include using up the food items and cleaning products that will not be moved. Utility service providers have to be informed about the relocation and cancellation of subscription from the various utilities. Likewise the bank, friends, relatives and neighbors have to be informed.

International relocation means change of country, home, culture, friends, colleagues and neighbors and most importantly the eating habits. One has to make adjustments for all these things. So it is quite daring to accept the proposal of international relocation.

However, one thing is for certain and that is: a lot is to be done. So taking the help of international relocation companies providing international relocation services should not be ruled out. Their help would make the task MUCH easier!
