If you are like many retirees, you may well want to move abroad when you have finally given up the daily commute for good. Many people choose to go to Portugal for the wonderful weather and the relaxed way of life – and in many cases for the golf! The Algarve is a favourite destination and one of the advantages is that that there are many other retired expats living there as well. 
Movers International is one of the foremost international shipping companies in the UK, but despite our name, we don’t just move people long distances and to foreign countries. We will move you to wherever you want to go, whether it’s across the town, somewhere else in the county or in the UK, or across the world. 
If you are going to move to France, you are not alone. Quite a number of Brits move to France for lots of different reasons, but many go down to the Mediterranean for the beautiful weather. In fact, at Movers International we are one of the foremost removal companies to France and we run a frequent road train service there, so if you only need to move a single item or a small amount of goods they can go as a part load on one of those runs, which will save you money. 
Moving home is said to be one of the most stressful things that we ever do in our lives, largely because there are just so many things to take care of, and there is the constant worry that we might have forgotten to do something that is vitally important. We create a list and then find that on that list there are things to do which need sub-lists. Not only that, but if you have a moving date, you are also constrained by the fact that everything – and we do mean everything – has to be completed by a certain date. 
Portugal is a friendly, welcoming country, and most of the population speaks English, which are two good reasons for moving there, whether you are retiring, or just want to live in the sun. Indeed, if the latter is the case, then you should consider the Algarve because it has 3,000 hours of sunshine every year – that’s over 8 hours a day! Yet there are cooling breezes coming off the Atlantic in the summer, so it doesn’t get over-heated. 
Spain is one of the most popular countries that British expats move to, often because they have been there for their summer holidays for years and they love the weather and the laid-back way of life. Having said that, the weather in Spain can vary considerably. Down south on the Mediterranean it is hot in the summer, warm in the winter, and the sun shines for 320 days a year. Central Spain tends to have extremes of hot and cold, while in the Pyrenees, of course, you can go skiing, as you can on the Sierra Nevada. 
Movers International is one of the foremost international shipping companies in the UK and can move anything that you want to move wherever you want to go. We have over 30 years of experience in international shipping, and as a result we know all the ins and outs of it. Wherever you are going, as long as it is not an uninhabited island in the Antarctic, it is almost certain that we have been there before. 
France is still one of the most popular countries that Brits who are planning to move abroad choose. It is a large country with big cities, bustling market towns, and sleepy villages out in the sticks. France has some wonderful coastline, especially in the south on the Mediterranean, but it also has large rural areas, vineyards aplenty, and of course, the Alps.
