What’s It Like Living in Sweden?

If you’ve ever considered taking a holiday in Sweden, it’s probably because of the snowy winters, romantic fjords, and the spectacular Northern Lights. But what’s it like to actually live and work in Sweden? Schepens has been providing removals to Sweden for over a century now. Many of the families we helped to relocate are now happily settled in the country. We asked them to tell us what living in Sweden is like. Here are some of their responses:

Removals to Swindon Area

Removals to Swindon Area

Looking for Removals in the Swindon Area?

Swindon’s located midway between Reading and Bristol in the beautiful county of Wiltshire. Its local transport links aren’t the only attraction though; Swindon sits just 80 miles from London and trains make the 50 minute journey every 30 minutes. Critics describe the town as a ‘messy sprawl’ but that underplays both its historic centre, and its location at the heart of Wiltshire.

Schepens has been providing removals to the Swindon area for over a century now, so we’ve seen the massive growth the town has undergone. The majority of our movers are now happily settled and tell us that the benefits of living in the Swindon area definitely outnumber the negatives. We asked them where they would advise movers to look for property around Swindon:

Moving From London to Finland

Finland may not get the attention its neighbours Denmark and Sweden enjoy, but this huge, sparsely populated country is well worth getting to know better. In 2020 it scored a global hat-trick by being named the ‘happiest country in the world’ for the third time running.

Schepens has been helping movers relocate to Finland for over a century now, and we’re well-acquainted with its towns and cities. Most of our movers are now happily settled in Helsinki, Tampere or Turku. We asked them what advice they have for people moving from London to Finland.

Moving to Fareham

Moving to Fareham

Fareham has been named as the second best place to live in the UK by the Halifax’s 2020 quality of life survey. This will provide food for thought for movers wondering which of Hampshire’s many beautiful spots to consider. Fareham scored particularly high on the health of its residents, their well-being, and the vibrant community that makes living in Fareham so enjoyable.

Schepens are long-time fans of Fareham’s quiet beauty. It’s not in the same league as Hampshire’s ‘hotspots’ such as nearby Portsmouth, Southampton or Winchester, but it’s a picturesque spot with a small population and excellent access to the beach. We wondered what recent movers thought of the news, so we asked them: “Would you recommend moving to Fareham?”

What is Winchester Like?

What is Winchester Like?

What is Winchester Like?

Winchester is one of those cities that it’s impossible to ‘take for granted’. Over the past 100 years we’ve provided Winchester removals to families moving from London, students moving into their first independent flat and retirees whose dream has been to move to the city. Every time we enter through those ancient gates we get the same feeling; that this city is ‘’something special”.

Maybe it’s down to the fact that Winchester seems to have been an important centre since the Iron Age, with 3 ancient hill forts in close vicinity. Or perhaps its connection with the legend of King Arthur lends it a mythical air. We decided to test out whether the magic of Winchester remains when you’re living there. We asked movers who’d lived in the city for more than a year: What is Winchester like?

Emigrating to Denmark From the UK

Emigrating to Denmark From the UK

Moving to another country is a huge step. Even if you’ve come to know and love your new home over years of travel, living there reveals the country to you in a completely new light. Schepens has supported a number of families emigrating to Denmark from the UK. In every case the experience was emotional and exciting and a little scary for them – often all at the same time.

We asked some of our movers who are now completely settled in Denmark what they learnt about their new home in their first year of living there. Here are some of their replies:
