Moving to Sydney from UK

Schepens Can Help if You’re Moving to Sydney From the UK

Sydney is one of the 15 most visited cities in the world, and it’s easy to see why. It simply has it all. An incredible climate, beautiful beaches, a vibrant international city culture, and amazing buildings and events. It’s hard to find anyone who, after their first day in Sydney, didn’t secretly start making plans to move to this beautiful spot.

At Schepens, we regularly move clients to Sydney from the UK, and many of them are relocating for work. The jobs market is very good for skilled graduates at the moment, making Australia a viable option for young families. The city is expensive, but wages are better than in much of Europe, making it an attractive destination economically.

Here are the top 5 reasons why Brits tend to stay in Sydney, once they’ve moved there:

1. A Great Climate

Australia, like everywhere else, is feeling the effects of climate change with prolonged periods of drought and heatwaves. Across the year, though, the weather in Sydney is sub-tropical. This means that the winters are mild, and sunshine is on hand throughout the year. Our clients tell us that the loss of the winter ‘gloom’ has a profound effect on their well-being.

2. Great Food

For a while Australia, like Britain, suffered a poor reputation when it came to food. That is certainly a thing of the past in Sydney! The culture is one that promotes healthy living and eating, so the last few years have seen a major influx of great restaurant choices for lovers of good, organic food. There’s also a strong vegan culture, so plenty of choice and good quality offerings across the city.

3. Health Takes Priority

Given the climate, it’s no surprise that healthy activities abound. What is surprising is the way in which healthy living, and exercise has become so infectious. It’s now difficult to find reasons not to get involved in them. There’s a great range of activities, too – from boot camps on the beach, to hiking, sailing, camping and games.

4. Beach Swimming is Easy

Imagine living in a place where there are so many city beaches that many of them are deserted most of the time. The majority of these beautifully kept spaces offer man-made swimming pools at the top of the beach, as well as the natural beauty of ocean swimming. We’ve heard from more than one clients that the sheer availability of beaches in Sydney feels ‘quite wicked’.

5. A Manageable City

Whilst millions of people live in Sydney and its suburbs, it’s managed to remain ‘local’ and ‘walkable’. This contributes to the great sense of community in the city, and the vibrant energy of those who live there. The one thing our clients note as a downside is the expense of living in the city – but then, the economy continues to perform strongly making pay better than average.

Finally I unpacked every box and I can say that every item was in very good condition. I want to thank you for the very good service you offered me and I recommended your company to my friends. Every step of the process was very professionally done and your crew consists of nice and competent people. Thank you very much for everything.

We’re a 4th generation family business that’s been moving clients to Australia for over 100 years!! We ship regularly to Sydney, which means that we’re able to offer clients flexible scheduling.

Tailored Removals to Sydney

Amongst the thousands of clients we’ve moved to Sydney from the UK, we’ve never encountered a ‘standard’ move. Which is why we don’t offer ‘standard removals’.

We provide a range of international removals services which include:

Professional Packers. Our BAR trained removals teams can pack up your home, label all your boxes and create a detailed inventory for shipping.

Insurance. Your goods are covered during the process of shipping. Should you wish additional Accidental Damage, or Extended Liability Cover, we can arrange it for you.

Non-Standard Goods. If you’re planning to ship any valuable items such as antique furniture, works of art, or musical instruments, we can arrange bespoke packing and handling.

Self Storage. Should you need self storage for goods or furniture in the UK, Schepens have local storage facilities. We offer 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, run on air ride suspension and boast an adjustable bearing system, which ensures little or no movement of vehicle content.
