Friendly and Experienced Removals to Salisbury

2018 was a testing time for the ancient city of Salisbury. It will always be remembered for being the year of the Novichok poisoning attack which claimed a life, and closed down the town centre twice. A less community-focused city might have crumpled in the face of such adverse circumstances. But Salisbury weathered both the traumatic events, and the global press attention, admirably and is now virtually back to normal as one of the leading UK tourist centres.

Cost of Living in Norway

Wondering About the Cost of Living in Norway? 

Norway is one of of the destinations that Schepens ships goods to most regularly. And, for as long as we can remember, Oslo has had the reputation for being one of the most expensive cities in the world. It came as a surprise, therefore, to read in Mercer’s 25th Annual Cost of Living Survey that the city now ranks 61, well below London at 23, or New York at 9.

The Mercer index ranks cities for expatriate workers, and the cost of living is a key determinant to the ranking. Businesses looking at cities across the world, with an eye to relocation, will consider the kind of compensatory pay they’ll need to offer their employees. Cities are being challenged, therefore, to offer an attractive environment for foreign investors.

Schepens Can Help if You’re Moving to Australia From UK

Around 1 in 10 UK citizens live abroad. That’s 5 million Brits scattered across the globe. A proportion of those will be posted to another country for work. But the majority move for a better climate, now opportunities, or greater well-being. Australia is currently the most popular expat destination, according to the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR). And if you’re thinking of retiring to Australia, you’ll be joining the quarter of a million British retirees already living there.

It’s easy to see why Australia is favoured so highly by the Brits. English is the first language, and we have a shared history. The cities are vibrant, globally competitive and diverse. Beautiful beaches are plentiful, and the Aussies are world-renowned for their ability to kick back and enjoy life. Add to that the fact that Australia is now one of the healthiest countries to live in, and it’s clear why so many Brits want to live there.
