Living in Malmö


Living in Malmo

Moving to Malmö

Malmö is often referred to as Sweden’s most European city. This is thanks to its geographical location on the southern coast, but it’s also a comment on the culture of the city. It’s on course for being the first city in the world to have representatives from every culture living in its bounds. At present it’s 27 short, but a massive 31% of residents come from every corner of the globe.

Schepens has a very special relationship with Sweden, as we’ve been providing removals between the UK and all its major cities and towns for over a century. We love having the opportunity to work in Malmö, but what’s it like living in Malmö day-to-day? We asked some clients who have settled in Sweden’s third largest city. Here’s what they told us.

1. A City of Layers to Discover

Malmö’s like an onion; you have to keep peeling away the layers. For a while I thought that it was pretty staid as far as the nightlife went – then I discovered the svartklubben. These are like pop-up parties that appear at the weekend and cater to different identities and music tastes. Then there’s the mouse-sized version of the city that’s truly magical to discover. I must have walked past these artworks hundreds of times before I noticed them.

2. A Great City For Bringing Up Kids

The Swedish laws governing parental leave and childcare make bringing up children an affordable pleasure. But that’s just the start. Malmö is built with children in mind – which takes some getting used to! There are parks and playgrounds everywhere. And if you’re working parents there’s a great choice of daycare centres that are ridiculously reasonable.

3. The Bridge

Everyone mentions the Öresundsbron which connects Malmö and Copenhagen – thanks in part to the eponymous TV series. It is a stunning, elegant and inspiring structure in its own right, though, and the journey between the two cities takes just 45 minutes. It’s one of those features that never becomes ‘normal’; it’s an extraordinary backdrop that always makes the day feel special.

4. Malmö is Thriving

It’s exciting to live in a city that’s realising its potential. There’s loads of creative start-ups in tech, the gaming industry and advertising, and huge investment in the cultural life of the city. As a result there’s free stuff available throughout the year and the Malmö Live concert venue has an amazing programme of events. There’s a real buzz to the city; you feel the energy as you walk through it.

Schepens Provides Removals to Malmö

Schepens is a fourth generation, family-run removals business and we’ve been providing removals to Malmö for more than 100 years now. Our long-standing relationship with Sweden means that we travel weekly to major cities and towns. This allows us to offer flexible scheduling to clients moving to or from Malmö, and we provide full or part load container shipping.


Tailored Removals to Sweden

In all the years we’ve been moving families to Sweden to work and live, we’ve never encountered a ‘standard’ move, which is why we don’t offer ‘standard’ removals. Instead we allocate a professional Move Co-ordinator to each client, who will help to develop a tailored removals plan based on specific requirements.

Schepens’ removals services include:

  • Professional Packing Services. Our removals teams can pack up your home, label your boxes for shipping, and created a detailed inventory.
  • Insurance. All items are insured in transit. If clients require additional Accidental Damage, or Extended Liability cover, we can arrange this.
  • Non-Standard Goods. We move pianos, artworks and antiques to Sweden fairly regularly. This includes bespoke packaging, handling and shipping.
  • Self Storage. Should you need to place furniture or goods in storage in the UK, Schepens has local facilities. We provide a door-to-door service and a secure, climate-controlled environment.
  • Transport. Your goods will be shipped in one of our state-of-the-art removals vehicles which maintain a constant temperature and humidity, and run on air ride suspension.

Schepens Offers Stress-Free Removals

We take pride in the level of service we’re able to provide for our clients moving to Sweden. In order to minimise the stresses traditionally associated with overseas removals, we provide professional, highly trained removals teams. They offer helpful, proactive support for your move to Sweden, and are always willing to ‘go the extra mile’ if necessary.

“Your moving company was the best I ever experienced and I’m going on your website leaving fantastic reviews. The personal, amazing and professional help I had was outstanding. Please let me know if you and your family will be in Sweden so I can look after you all.” – Camilla M
