Spain Is The All-Time Favourite Country For Britons To Move To
Posted on 27th June 2022 at 06:50
If you are planning on moving to Spain, you are by no means alone. According to the Spanish Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security, & Immigration, the number of Britons resident in Spain increased by 7 percent in 2021 compared to 2020. In 2019 the number of Britons living in Spain was 359,471, while at the end of December last year that had gone up to 407,628.
Spain is probably the all-time favourite country for Britons to move to, partly because we go there on holiday so often. Sun, sand, Spanish wine, and siestas – what’s not to like? As one of the foremost international moving companies, at Movers International we should know, as we are moving furniture to Spain every single week.
In fact, we move so many people to Spain that we have two of our own depots there in Southern Spain at Alicante and Malaga. Apart from people who are moving home, we also have a weekly run to Spain, which is perfect if you just need to move a couple of items for whatever reason.
The cost of living in Spain is a lot less than it is here in the UK too. For instance, if you compare living in Madrid to living in London, Madrid is 38% less expensive. That means that your euro goes a lot further.
If you are planning on finding a job in Spain, it is best to organise it before you move. You will need a social security number and you need to provide certain documents such as a UK criminal records certificate. If you are going to Spain and plan to live on your UK pension, you need to take into account that there will always be fluctuations between the UK pound and the euro too.
Moving furniture to Spain is what we do at Movers International, and our expert team of packers can ensure that your belongings are safe and sound and will arrive in the same condition that they left here.
As one of the foremost international moving companies in the UK, we have been moving people to Spain for over 30 years, so no matter where you are going to live, we know the country like the backs of our hands. That includes all those remote locations that are difficult to get to. Just tell us if access is difficult beforehand and we’ll get you wherever you need to go.
