Are you moving to the United Kingdom in the next few months? It’s a big decision, and one of the biggest moves in the world by distance. From Sydney to London, for example, is a 16,989 kilometre journey. Depending on which airline you fly with, it can take well over a day to arrive.
Imagine how long it takes to get all of your personal belongings to the UK in a shipping container.
If it takes a whole day for you to fly with just a suitcase, imagine how long it takes to get all of your personal belongings there in a shipping container. It takes a whole lot of organising to get all of that ready to go as well, and there’s plenty of room for error when you try to do it all yourself.
Whether you’re moving from Sydney to London, Melbourne to Belfast, Adelaide to Edinburgh or Perth to Cardiff, the Allied Pickfords team can help to make your transition a whole lot smoother.
What do you need to know about moving to the UK?
In the post-Brexit environment, there’s a lot of uncertainty about moving to the UK and finding employment. However, there is a period of two years during which the UK will renegotiate treaties with the European Union regarding employment, residency and trade.
What that means for you and your family is that when you’re in your new home in the northern hemisphere, you may have some time where changes are being made to the international relations between the two bodies. There’s a lot to understand about moving to the UK post-Brexit, and your Move Consultant will be able to help you get a handle on it all.
In London, there’s always something going on, at any time of the day or night, on any night of the week.
Moving from Australia, there will also be some climate differences. Take Scotland, for example – it’s a whole lot colder than anywhere in Australia, and you’ll rarely (if ever) get consistently hot days over the course of a week. That’s not to say Scotland is a hard place to live. It’s beautiful and full of history, like all the rest of the UK, but it is different.
A melting pot of cultures
One thing you will notice when you move to the UK is how varied the cultures are. In London, there’s always something going on, at any time of the day or night, on any night of the week. Take a stroll through the city centre and you’ll come across something exciting or interesting to see. Head to the West End for a show, or stand on top of the world and ride the London Eye.
