Living in Denmark

Most of us were introduced to Denmark via ‘Danish Pastries’ – and indeed the Danes love cakes! But there is so much more to admire and enjoy in this beautiful country. From Renaissance castles, to colourful harbours and windswept, deserted beaches. For city-lovers, the Danes do urban living extraordinarily well. There’s world-class art galleries, theatres, music venues and shops, enveloped in a culture of inclusiveness.

Schepens has been providing removals to Denmark for over a century now. We feel extremely lucky to have the chance to work regularly in this extraordinary country and we enjoy our visits to its towns and cities.

Moving to Boston

Boston is the oldest city in America, so there’s an impressive list of ‘1sts’ associated with it. It’s home to the 1st lighthouse to be built in America, on Brewster Island. Boston Common is the 1st public park to open in America – back in 1634. And the first subway ever was built here in 1897. Now Boston is very much a 21st city and home to some of the world’s largest employers in finance, life sciences and technology.

Schepens has been providing removals to Boston for over a century now, and we thoroughly enjoy our visits to this city drenched in history and culture. We’re aware that many of our clients have been surprised at the differences they’ve experienced between UK and US culture.

5 Best Places to Live in Hampshire

For Londoners looking to escape the overcrowded capital, Hampshire often tops the list of potential locations. First off, it offers a ‘doable’ commute, although there’s quite a spectrum of journey times across the county. Second, Hampshire has large cities and a good infrastructure, so leaving London doesn’t mean dropping off the map. Third, it’s got stunning countryside, and the south coast!

Hampshire is an eye-watering blend of beautiful villages, bustling market towns, and port cities. The county is home to two distinguished rivers – the Test and the Meon, and the hidden gem at the eastern reaches is the New Forest woodland. At Schepens we’ve been moving families to our stunning home county for over 100 years. We thought we’d talk about the 5 locations that our clients consider the best places to live in Hampshire.
