This post looks at what makes Southampton such a popular location for movers and details the removals services Schepens offers.

Why Move to Southampton?

There’s any number of reasons why Southampton is so popular with movers. It’s just 90 minutes from London by train, a two-hour ferry ride from the Isle of Wight, and it has its own international airport. There are plenty of beautiful beaches nearby, whilst the Southampton offers the culture and retail experience of a contemporary city.

We asked some of our movers, who are now happily settled in Southampton, why it’s a great place to live. Here’s what they told us:

Southampton is a Lively, Friendly City

“As Londoners born and bred, we wanted the best of both worlds; lots of natural spaces for our kids to enjoy as they’re growing up, and all the best bits of city life for us. Southampton fitted the bill nicely.”

An Ancient Historic City

“I grew up in Southampton and then moved away for work. When I got married, we decided to move back, and neither of us have regretted it. There’s something really special about living in a port that has centuries of history behind it.”

Property is Still Affordable

“We moved to Southampton because of its location, but also because – so long as you choose your area carefully – you get far better value down here than in London. We live in Netley which is perfect for us, and we have a garden!”


Movers can rely on the local knowledge, and professionalism of the Schepens team to make your move stress-free. We have been providing removals in Southampton, and across Hampshire for years, so we have a local reputation for excellent service.

“Just wanted to say what a great job Phil & Paul did moving us from Soton to Sandown I O W.  Phil did a great job packing, I could not believe that one man could do all that he never stopped. The lads put everything where we wanted it and never scratched a thing, they are a credit to your company, thanks again for a great job.”
