Schepens are First Choice for House Removals Portsmouth

Portsmouth has always had a special place in the British imagination as an historic port and home of the Royal Navy. Given its history, it’s appropriate that Portsmouth is the UK’s only island city. Portsea Island juts out into the sea and is known locally as ‘Hampshire’s thumb’. One measure of the continuing importance of this city is its population; Portsmouth’s population density exceeds that of London!

Sitting just 70 miles south west of London, Portsmouth is a tempting prospect for singles, young professionals and families. Recent investment has transformed the city centre, and begun a reinvention of the city as a vibrant and contemporary city culture, with a proud history. Portsmouth is considered one of the top ten places worth investing in, and property prices compare well with their London equivalents.

The job opportunities are growing all the time in Portsmouth. As an important naval base, maritime industries are a major employer, but it’s also an important tech hub; IBM Europe has their headquarters there. The city is also home to major defence industry giants such as BAE Systems and QinetiQ, and Airbus Defence & Space.

House Removals Portsmouth – Is Commuting an Option?

If you want the best of both worlds, the drive to London takes, on average, 1 hour 45 minutes, or there are regular trains to Waterloo which take around 90 minutes. A word of warning, however, Portsmouth is known for its traffic congestion problems, and though the City Council is working hard on schemes to alleviate the problem, it’s currently a factor when thinking about a daily commute.

House Removals Portsmouth – Buying Property in Portsmouth

One of the most popular choices for property are the Georgian properties that populate the cobbled lanes of the old city. Three-bedroom houses in this area cost around £500,000. Contemporary apartments in the trendy harbourside Gunwharf Quay cost around £350,000. For cheaper options, look north of Southsea Common, or off Albert Road where Victorian houses cost around £200,000.
