At Schepens we’ve been providing removals to Paris for over 100 years now, and our goal throughout that time has been to provide stress-free removals for all our clients. In that spirit, therefore, we’ve chosen 4 of the tips we’ve been given for those of you who are contemplating, or are on the brink of moving to Paris.

Moving to Denmark

Living in Denmark

Most of us were introduced to Denmark via ‘Danish Pastries’ – and indeed the Danes love cakes! But there is so much more to admire and enjoy in this beautiful country. From Renaissance castles, to colourful harbours and windswept, deserted beaches. For city-lovers, the Danes do urban living extraordinarily well. There’s world-class art galleries, theatres, music venues and shops, enveloped in a culture of inclusiveness.

Schepens has been providing removals to Denmark for over a century now. We feel extremely lucky to have the chance to work regularly in this extraordinary country and we enjoy our visits to its towns and cities. In order to find out what living in Denmark day-to-day is like, we asked some of our clients who are now resident there. Here’s what they told us:

Living in the Hague

Living in The Hague

The Hague is a medium sized, affluent city in the Netherlands, conveniently located on the beach. It’s home to the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal and the International Court of Justice. Which makes it an expat hub with a distinctly diplomatic flavour. Add into the mix a large, international student population and you start to understand the unique cultural mix which distinguishes this stately city.

Schepens has been providing removals to the Hague  for professionals, students and families for over a century now. We take delight in our regular trips to the Netherlands and enjoy the diversity of experience its cities offer.

Living in Zurich

Zurich is Switzerland’s largest city, and home to Europe’s most glamorous – and expensive – shopping street, the Bahnhofstrasse. It’s also home a many international company headquarters, including Nestlé, Glencore and Jaeger, making it a truly multicultural hub. And right at the heart of this financial powerhouse of a city is a beautifully preserved medieval Zurich, making the bridge between past and present.

Schepens has been moving families, businesses and professionals to Zurich for over a century now and we travel there regularly. It’s always a delight to work in Switzerland, but that’s very different from living there. We asked some clients who have settled in the city what living in Zurich is like, day-to-day. Here’s what they told us.

Living in Norway

Despite the fact that it’s one of the most expensive European countries to live in, Norway remains a popular location for expats from the UK. This comes as no surprise as the country enjoys great prosperity, and is defined by its large economy, thriving culture, and an open, stable democracy. Living in Norway enables an exceptional quality of life, with outstanding public infrastructure, impressive wages, and generous working conditions. It’s a thriving place to live; no wonder then, why Norway attracts such a large proportion of expats each year!

Schepens has been providing removals to Norway for over a century now, and we’ve moved thousands of families during that time. We asked some of them what it’s like living in Norway. Here are some of their thoughts.

Living in Rouen

Living in Rouen

Living in Rouen

Rouen Cathedral is one of the best known facades in the world, thanks to a series of paintings by Claude Monet. Each one captures the Gothic architecture in a different light, and the changing seasons. Rouen was one of Europe’s most prosperous cities in the 15th century and the cathedral is just one of the extraordinary examples of medieval architecture that sit alongside the city’s more contemporary buildings.

Schepens has been providing removals to France for over a century now. We’re frequent visitors to the city and we love having the opportunity to work there. It’s very different living in Rouen to visiting it regularly, though. We asked a number of Schepens clients who are now settled there, what it’s like to live in the city. Here’s what they told us:

We thought it might be helpful to share our insights. Of course we’d like you to choose Schepens for your move to Norway, but if you don’t, at least you’ll have a point of comparison for making your decision.

Living in Hamburg

Living in Hamburg

Living in Hamburg

Hamburg is known, historically, as ‘the gateway to the world’ and with good cause. Its sea port is the reason for Hamburg’s wealth as a city. To this day it attracts a huge volume of international trade and – now – massive cruise liners. This is a city characterised by water and bridges. The Elbe flows through it, Alster Lake sits at its heart, and canals criss-cross it.

Schepens has been helping families to move to and from Hamburg for over a century now. It’s an exciting city to visit and we enjoy working there. We’re not residents, though, so we don’t know what living in Hamburg is like. In order to find out we asked some of our clients who are now settled in the city. This is what they told us.
