Schepens Provides Removals to Eastleigh in Hampshire
Eastleigh isn’t the first town that comes to mind when you think of Hampshire. But it’s fast becoming a popular place for younger families wanting to make a move from London. Where properties in Southampton and Winchester can be beyond their budget, Eastleigh offers an increasingly attractive alternative. This Victorian railway town was the home of the legendary Spitfire, and is now transforming itself into a young, buzzy community with a great arts centre and lots of independent shops.
Schepens is a local Hampshire removals company that’s been providing removals to Eastleigh for over a century. We’ve watched this town grow in stature and confidence over the past few decades, so we asked some former clients what it’s like to live there now. Here’s what they told us:
A Town On The Up
Eastleigh’s definitely a town that’s on a journey from being ‘beastly Eastleigh’ to being a great place to live. The house prices have jumped up over the past few years, which is always a good sign. You can tell there’s investment in the town centre, and the green spaces. This is never going to compete with Winchester, but it’s fast becoming a great place to live, especially if you’ve got a young family.
The Point Arts Centre is Brilliant
The Point is everything a community art centre should be. There’s theatre, dance, shows for the kids and all that. But there’s also ‘health and well being’ weekends, open mic nights, and board game events. No matter what your interests are, there’s likely to be something for you. And it’s always buzzy; it’s a place to meet up, or grab a cup of coffee and a cake.
Great Transport Links
On average it takes about 90 minutes to get into London, which is manageable. It’s 15 minutes to Southampton on the train and 10 minutes to Winchester. Eastleigh’s home to Southampton Airport which offers flights across the UK and Europe, so that’s really handy. Then there’s access to beaches, the New Forest and the whole of the south coast – couldn’t be better, really.
A Town With a Heart
Eastleigh feels like home, mainly because there’s lots of ways to meet people and a real sense of community. The centre has all the shops you need – and loads of coffee shops. Every year there’s festivals in the parks, including the outdoor music and the Chilli Festival at Leigh Road rec. It feels like somewhere people want to live, and that makes all the difference.

If you’re thinking of moving to Eastleigh, Schepens can support you every step of the way. We’re a fourth generation, family-run business offering removals to Eastleigh and across Hampshire and Wiltshire. Our centre of operations is in Romsey, so we know this beautiful part of the world well, and our removals teams all come from the local area. If you need to know which roads to avoid, or the best day of the week to move, we have the local knowledge to help.
Tailored Hampshire Removals
Whether you’re moving to Hampshire from London, or from nearby, it will be a unique event requiring specialist care and attention. At Schepens we don’t offer ‘standard removals’ because, in our experience, every move is unique. We allocate a professional Move Co-ordinator to each of our clients, therefore, and they work with you to develop a tailored removals plan based on your specific requirements.
Schepens removal services include:
- Professional Packing Services. Our trained removals team can pack up your home, label your boxes, and create a detailed room-by-room inventory.
- Insurance. All your items will be insured during transport. Should you require additional Accidental Damage, or Extended Liability insurance, we can arrange cover.
- Non-Standard Goods. If your move includes fragile artworks, a piano, or valuable artworks, Schepens can provide bespoke packaging, handling, and transport.
- Schepens Self Storage. Should you need extra space in Eastleigh, Schepens has self storage facilities nearby. We provide a door-to-door service, and a secure, climate-controlled environment.
Taking Good Care of Customers
Our customers really are at the heart of everything we do at Schepens. And our aim has always been to provide a stress-free moving experience for each and every one. To this end, we train every employee to industry standards. This means that they’re professional, able to proactively manage challenges – and they’re always willing to go the extra mile.
“You helped us through a hugely stressful moving day by supporting us at every step. We couldn’t have had a better team to get us through; you were patient, cheerful and practical throughout. Thanks for keeping us sane, can’t recommend Schepens highly enough!!”– Jo
