If you are considering moving to Spain, then you are by no means alone. It is a wonderful country with a rather laid-back attitude: you often hear the words “manana, manana”. In other words, there is no rush. Let’s face it, they take their siesta in the afternoon, and then an evening stroll in the sun. 
Many retirees choose to go and live in Spain, and one of the most popular cities is Malaga. At Movers International, we should know because we have our own depot there, along with another in Alicante. Malaga is on the southern cost of Andalusia and offers almost non-stop sunshine. It also has a sizeable population of UK expats, so you will be able to quickly make new friends. 
However, if you like skiing, then Spain can offer you that as well, if you move to the Pyrenees, or even in the area around Madrid. 
The cost of living is another benefit for UK expats because it was recently calculated that living in Madrid was around 38% cheaper than living in London. That’s a lot. And it is even less out in the sticks. 
Spanish Is Easy To Learn 
Another advantage of moving to Spain is that Spanish is a very easy language to learn. Certainly, you will need to invest some time, either in evening classes or taking an online course, but compared with something such as German for example, it is relatively simple. 
Healthcare in Spain is similar to that in the UK, and most of it is free. However, you do have to have been living in Spain for five years or be employed there or be paying into their public health insurance scheme. As in the UK, you have to pay for prescriptions. 
If you want to take your car with you, you can drive it with UK number plates for 6 months. After that time, you are considered a Spanish resident and have to register it with the Spanish authorities and obtain a Spanish number plate. 
When it comes to Spain removals, at Movers International we are your trusted experts. Not only do we have our own two depots there, but we also run a regular weekly service. So, if you only need to move a few items, you can save money by using that. 
For Spain removals where you need to move everything that you own, we have vans in varying sizes, and so we are able to provide you with a cost-effective service including safe and secure packing, and transport.
