Stress-Free Moving to Bournemouth With Schepens

Blessed Bournemouth has always been considered a haven from stress and worldly woes. Its beautiful beaches and guaranteed summer sunshine provides a perfect environment for a long and happy life. Writer R.L.Stevenson wrote some of his best work in Bournemouth – including Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – whilst recovering from illness there. And numerous Victorians travelled to this famed spa town for rest and rejuvenation.

In the 21st century, it’s stressed London movers with young families who look to Bournemouth as a haven. The town offers larger properties – with gardens – an enhanced quality of life, and regular train services to and from the capital. Schepens has been helping families moving to Bournemouth for over a century now. In this blog we look a 5 ways to ensure that your relocation to this beautiful seaside town is stress-free.

1. Prepare for the Change to Your Lifestyle

Moving to the seaside sounds idyllic but it’s a major disruption in your life and that can spell stress. Part of the moving process is acknowledging this and preparing yourself for a change of pace. Many movers find that it takes a few months to slow down their city rhythms, and shift their expectations. If possible, spend a few weekends in Bournemouth prior to moving, so that you start to see it as somewhere you’ll be living rather than a holiday destination.

2. Get an Accurate Quote for Your Move

Keeping your budget on track is one of the most stressful aspects of moving home. It’s important, therefore, to get an accurate quote for your removals. Most moving companies offer a free ‘ball park’ figure to attract customers. At Schepens we go further. Each potential customer is allocated a Move Co-ordinator who will help to develop a detailed removals plan. This forms the basis for our accurate FREE no obligation quote.
