If you like to go on holiday each year, you may go to Spain or to France or even to the Caribbean wherever you go you always think oh I wish I could stay and live here. Well now that's what many people are doing, there packing their old lives up in the UK and moving on to new pastures usually in and around Europe. I think many people move to Europe because there not too far away from the UK and so can easily hop on a plane or a boat and visit family and friends.
I would say Spain is the place most British people move too, it has sun throughout the year and of course that means its warm most of the time, unlike Britain where we might get the odd week here and there when we think its summer. As well as the weather Spain has a lower cost of living so your money would go further not only in property but also food, clothing etc. If you do want to move to Spain or any other country in Europe your best bet is to go there on holiday and don't just limit yourself to the coastal areas but move inland and relax then go and have a look around different towns and villages and see if you like any.
If you're looking to invest in a business out there too then a good idea is to find other British people who have moved from the UK and ask for their advice. They will know of places which may be for sale or available to rent, they will also know of any good areas to find a house within your price range. Locals will be your best bet at helping you decide if the area is for you.
If you do decide to move to anywhere in Europe of course you will need help moving all your belongings from your home in the UK to your new home in the sun whether its Spain, France, Portugal, Italy or Germany. You may even decide to just take your clothes, your special items and other important items you want to have with you. Furniture, pots and pans etc. may not be necessary but some people want to start a fresh and also find it cheaper to buy all new furniture when they're settled in their new home as shipping all your furniture and other belongings to your new life can be expensive.
It's only the packing of all your items you have to worry about; it's making sure you have filled in all the correct paperwork so your containers can be shipped from the UK to your chosen destination. International shipping companies can help make the move less stressful, taking on board all your worries. They will help you pack your items safely and securely and have them aboard a van, which will be driven to the country where your new life is and if there are problems with getting the van to your new property then a smaller local van can be used. The removal and shipping company will take the stress away from your move from the UK to Europe so why not spend that bit of money to make your move less stressful and more relaxing.
