Why Are So Many People Moving to Barcelona?

Barcelona is one of the most famous cities in the world. It is well known for its delicious food, vibrant artistic scene, colourful architecture and its love of football. The city is home to approximately 1.6 million people, with about 4.7 million people in the urban area of the city.

It is the largest city on the mediterranean sea — located between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs. This area is a place of pristine natural beauty, which is a major drawcard for many people moving to Barcelona.

Barcelona is located in Catalonia, one of the richest regions in Europe. The economy has a strong manufacturing industry and Barcelona’s fashion industry is world famous. Barcelona is considered one of the world’s major global cities because of its influence in many areas including education, entertainment, commerce, fashion, science and the arts.

Tourism is also lucrative in Barcelona, with millions of people visiting the region each year. It is the 20th-most-visited city in the world and the fifth most visited city in Europe.

According to the lifestyle magazine Monocle, Barcelona is the 14th most liveable city in the world. Barcelona is also widely recognised as an innovation hub, with many world-leading research centres and universities.

It is a beautiful part of the world with a thriving economy and cultural scene — no wonder so many people are moving to Barcelona!

We Use Modern Specialist Removals Vehicles

The Schepens fleet of removals vehicles are modern, reliable and well-maintained. They are only driven by fully trained professionals who have a great deal of experience performing removals to Barcelona. All vehicles include:

  • An adjustable barring system
    This system allows removers to section off cargo — removing the risk of cross-contamination or movement during the journey.
  • Air ride suspension
    This state-of-the-art suspension system cushions your possessions during the move to Barcelona. It greatly reduces the risk of breakage and is useful for ensuring fragile items make it in one piece.
  • Security alarm systems
    All vehicles are alarmed to reduce the risk of theft

A Range of Insurance Options

Schepens offer clients a wide range of insurance options for their cargo. These options suit different budgets and can be tailored to suit the types of objects that are being transported. Clients also have the option of purchasing extended liability insurance.
