New Year, New Home: Tips For Moving Abroad in 2020


Another year has passed by. Wow, that one has flown by far too quickly, hasn’t it? What has happened to all resolutions that you’ve committed to last year? Have you stick to them, or your list has ended up hidden at the back of a drawer?

It’s human nature to kick-start the new year with big promises and long to-do lists, and most likely you have already skimmed over at least two publications on how to make 2020 your year. And that’s fine, finding a little dose of inspiration can motivate us to pursue our dreams and achieve more in the coming year.

But there’s one thing that can utterly change your life and take you on an exciting adventure in 2020, and that’s moving abroad.

#New Home, New You

A surefire way to give a fresh start to your life is to move abroad. New country, new home, new you. Sounds soo good! That’s why it comes as no surprise that moving abroad is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions, and with this blog post we will help you eliminate the things that give you excuses not to move abroad now.

#Removals companies – how to find the right one?

Moving abroad tops the lists of the most stressful events people can experience in life. And it is certainly daunting as moving home is more than changing your home address; you need to get settled into a new environment with culture, traditions and way of living, which are completely different to those in the UK. So, undoubtedly the first few weeks and months can be a little bit crazy.

One of the most important things you’ll need to keep in mind every step of the way is that relocation is a process, which demands solid planning and preparations to be successful. It starts with finding a job and a new place to call home, and continues long after you have shifted your home contents to your new country. Yet, we cannot deny that much of the stress comes from managing the logistics of your home move, so hiring a professional moving company to be your partner should be among the top priorities to check off well in advance of your actual home removal. If you’re wondering what factors to consider when looking for a good removals company, you may find some handy tips in this blog post. Remember that a reliable and reputable moving company would normally provide you a free, no-obligation quote for your move and can be flexible enough to accommodate your needs.


I hate packing. Is there an easy way?

Of course. You can always hire professional helpers to do the packing, loading & unloading for you so that you can free up time for more important tasks. Many moving companies offer packing as an extra service, which can be included in your moving quote. The options can vary by price – for example, the helpers can bring professional packing and wrapping materials for a fee, or you can provide everything you have handy and is suitable for packaging to cut the cost of your home removal.


#Brexit is not done yet…Is this the right time to move abroad?

UK Brexit’s saga has brought a new level of uncertainty, causing concerns for many British citizens who are thinking about moving to Europe. Should you postpone your move until Brexit is finalised, or you should start your new life abroad while you can?

The Brexit deal is expected to be ratified on January 31st, but can be hardly finalised until the end of 2020. So if you have already made up your mind to move to Europe, why wait and waste precious years of your life?

The full picture is not yet crystal clear, and there will be numerous questions to resolve in perspective, but you shouldn’t build your future around the Brexit fallout. 1.3 million UK citizens are living across the European Union, and for them, life may continue as normal. During the implementation period, which has been negotiated, their rights will remain unchanged, meaning that they will be able to continue to live and work in the EU.

As Brexit has come to a resolution, there are likely to be changes. You and your family may need to apply for residency status, but this won’t happen before June 2021, so why postpone your move abroad for another year?

Take the step, do the move, embrace the challenge.
