Relocation to Switzerland

Anticipating Relocation to Switzerland

At Schepens we occasionally get calls from clients telling us they’re being transferred to Geneva. Or maybe their partner’s just announced that there’s an opportunity too good to miss in Zurich. Adjusting to news like this takes a while, however great the location, and our clients describe mood swings veering between excitement and despair.

Most common is a sense mingled delight and fear at what it will be like to live in a new country, with a very different culture. People we’ve helped with removals to Switzerland tell us that it’s all too easy to stay in the comfort zone of the expat community when you make a big move. Whereas embracing your new culture, and enjoying what makes it so different, may be uncomfortable, but it’s a much richer experience.

Today, though, people from around the world choose to live here because of the stunning, powder white beaches, cosmopolitan city feel, and the laid back lifestyle Australia does so well.

What does it feel like to live on the other side of the world? We asked a group of expats who we’ve helped with their Perth removals over the years.

Schepens Offers Spanish Removals for Retirement

Despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, retiring to Spain remains a popular option for the Brits. It isn’t difficult to see why. The country combines the ingredient many people dream of for a perfect retirement; wonderful weather, beautiful beaches, and great food. Spain is home to approximately 300,000 UK nationals, almost half of whom are over 65. A large section of Spain’s British population is primarily based in and around coastal resorts in the Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol, Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Costa Brava and Murcia – where the beach is on the doorstep and the cost of living is generally lower than in the major cities.

Schepens has been helping people to retire to their dream location in Spain for decades. In this blog we’ll take a look at some of the things you’ll need to consider before making the move.
