Moving home is said to be one of the most stressful experiences that we ever undertake, and it is also known that the average person in the UK will move seven times in a lifetime. It is stressful because there are just so many different things that you have to attend to when moving home, whatever the reason. 
If you are going to move to Spain, there are a whole lot of things that you need to know. You may have been to Spain many a time on holiday, but moving there is very different from a two week trip. At Movers International, we can help you with removal to Spain because we go there every week with regular runs, and we also have our own offices in Alicante and Malaga because so many people in the UK choose to retire there. We can move your entire home, or we can just move some items on one of our weekly runs. 
Moving home is, without doubt, always stressful because there are so many different things that you need to do. There is always a lurking suspicion that you may have forgotten to do something very important, even though you may make list after list and tick things off as you go. 
Moving home is known to be one of the most stressful things that we ever do, and on average we move seven times in a lifetime. No matter how often or how little you move home, when you do there are a gazillion and one things that have to be taken care of. It is quite enough if you are moving across town. If you are moving to a different part of the UK that can be more difficult because you are leaving friends and family behind and going to somewhere where you may know nobody. 
However many times you may have moved home before, the next move is just as scary as the first one ever was. You are in a sense, venturing into the unknown, even if you are only moving across town. If you are moving to another country, which many people do, it can be even scarier because you are switching to another culture. Even if you move to an English-speaking country like Canada, New Zealand, Australia, or the US, they still do things differently from the way that we do, so there is a lot to learn. 
If you are thinking of moving to Portugal, you are not alone. Many people who have been to Portugal for a holiday become instantly enchanted by the relaxed way of life, the relatively cheap cost of living, the sun, and in some cases the golf courses. Of course, having mentioned the sun, while there is a lot of it, in December and January the temperature in central and northern Portugal can go below freezing, and even the Algarve has been known to have a drop of snow. Nonetheless, according to Live And Invest Overseas, Portugal, and especially the Algarve, was the No 1 best place in the world to retire in 2020. 
If you are moving to France, no doubt many of your friends will say that it’s no big deal. After all, it’s only 20 miles across the Channel and you’re there. It’s not as if you are moving to Australia or something. 
If you are moving to France, there are a lot of things to take into consideration. One of the first things is to take into account whether or not you have sufficient money not just to move, but to live for several months in France. Even if you have a job to go to you are not going to get a pay cheque until the end of the first month, but that is the least of your problems. When you move abroad there are always things that you haven’t though about or things that crop up, which mean that you have to buy bits and pieces that you haven’t allowed for. The best advice for moving abroad, even if it is only across the Channel, is to be certain that you have enough to live on for six months. 
Moving home can be one of the most stressful things that we ever do. However, it is one thing moving across town but another moving across the country. Even more complicated is moving to another country: not only is it further away, but you are moving to somewhere with a completely different way of life. Furthermore, in some cases, you may not even speak the language!
