Schepens are International Movers UK to USA
For many people, the Statue of Liberty guarding New York Harbour, remains the iconic image of arriving in the USA. For most contemporary movers, however, the experience of arriving in the USA is very different. And many of them will be travelling to the West, rather than the East Coast.
Planning a move to either the East or the West Coast requires awareness of the differences between the two.
Here’s 5 of the major differences:
1. Travel Time
This is, without doubt, the major difference for removals to the USA. Whilst flights from London to New York take an average of 7 hours. Flying to Los Angeles takes just over 11 hours. It’s important to factor this difference in when thinking about trips back home, especially if you have young children.
2. The Climate
This comes down to what you pack to take with you. On the Californian coast the summers last longer, and the temperatures don’t drop below freezing in the winter. The East Coast tends towards more extreme weather conditions, with baking summers and freezing winters, whilst in California the difference is less marked.
3. Health and Well-Being
We hear a lot about the latest food-fads in California, but these tend to be extreme examples of a culture that cares about health and well-being. West Coasters tend to exercise, eat carefully, and maintain their well-being. As a result, they tend to be healthier than East Coasters who are fonder of the carbs, and just don’t have time to get to the gym.
4. The Shape of Cities
In the East, cities tend to be dense and tightly packed. Property near the centre is at a premium and the competition for space is intense. In the West, by contrast, the cities are sprawling. Whilst there’s still a premium on certain neighbourhoods, space is easier to come by. And, if you’re willing to take time searching for properties, there are still bargains to be found.
5. Business Culture
The West Coast is the home of disruptive innovation – think Facebook, Airbnb, Twitter and Google. People bike, or use their scooter to get to work, and the entrepreneurial dream drives the business economy. In the East, business is more traditional; there are office blocks, cabs and suits. Whilst stereotypes abound, both the East and the West Coast have distinct business strengths that they play to.
