Removals to Brussels and Belgium from the UK

Brussels has always been one of the major gateways to Europe. It’s the capital city of the European Union, and within easy travelling distance of major hubs such as Paris, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt. For movers from the UK, part of its attraction lies in the fact it’s just a couple of hours from London by train, and an hour’s journey by plane.

Over the last few decades Schepens has provided removals to Brussels for countless families, professionals, and students. Whilst it’s possible to commute, our movers prefer to immerse themselves in the city where they will be living and working. Many of them have made the city their home, so we asked them what it’s like living in Brussels:

1. The Most Connected City in Europe

If you like your cities to be international hubs, Brussels is the place to be. There are buses, trains, flights to every city or large town in Europe and everywhere you go you’ll hear a number of languages being spoken. Locals are happy to switch between a range of languages (I love that) but they really appreciate it if you speak French.

2. Small City – Fun for a While

The great thing about Brussels is that it’s cheaper than its neighbouring capitals and – probably – more friendly. I found it easy to settle in and I’ve loved living here. However, five years in I’m itching for a change. Things don’t change much in Brussels, which is great if you like routine, but I’m noticing its lack of dynamism. It the perfect place to have a 1–2-year contract, I’d say.

3. Heard About the Commune System?

Brussels is made up of 19 communes and choosing the commune you live in has consequences. Each of the communes is a discrete political body; as a citizen you’ll register to vote with your commune, and they offer a range of services. So, the quality of public spaces, schools, and street cleaning is down to your commune.

4. A Perfect City for Eating Out

If you enjoy your food, and your fond of a good beer, you’ll love Brussels. On a sunny evening there are loads of rooftop terraces to choose from, or beautiful squares off the beaten track. If, like me, you’re a foody, you’re in for a treat. I’m gradually working through the different neighbourhoods to enjoy delicious food at reasonable prices.
