Living in Malmö

Living in Malmo

ARE YOU CONSIDERING MOVING TO MALMÖ?

Malmö is often considered to be Sweden’s most European city. This is largely because of its geographical location on the southern coast, but it’s also reflective of its culture. Malmö, with 31% of its population having arrived from elsewhere, is the most diverse of Sweden’s cities. So what’s it like living in Malmö?

Schepens has a longstanding relationship with Sweden. We’ve been providing removals between the UK and all its major cities and towns for over a century, and we continue to make runs to locations across the country every week. Many of our movers are now happily settled, so we asked them what living in Malmö is like? Here’s what they told us.


A CITY OF LAYERS TO DISCOVER

“Malmö’s like an onion; you have to keep peeling away the layers. After a few months living in Malmö 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.”

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.”

THE BRIDGE

“Everyone mentions the Öresundsbron which connects Malmö and Copenhagen – thanks in part to the famous 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.”

MALMÖ IS THRIVING

“What’s exciting about living in Malmö is that it’s 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.”

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.
  • Specialist Removals. We move pianosartworks 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 environment.
  • Transport. Your goods will be shipped in one of our state-of-the-art removals vehicles which 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, and living in Malmö. 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.”
