Moving to Boston

Boston is the oldest city in America, so there’s an impressive list of ‘1sts’ associated with it. It’s home to the 1st lighthouse to be built in America, on Brewster Island. Boston Common is the 1st public park to open in America – back in 1634. And the first subway ever was built here in 1897. Now Boston is very much a 21st city and home to some of the world’s largest employers in finance, life sciences and technology.

Schepens has been providing removals to Boston for over a century now, and we thoroughly enjoy our visits to this city drenched in history and culture. We’re aware that many of our clients have been surprised at the differences they’ve experienced between UK and US culture. We asked some of them, now resident in the city, to share their tips for families and professionals moving to the city.

Moving to Philadelphia

Over the past few decades, Philadelphia has tended to be overshadowed by its East Coast neighbours, New York and Washington. Now, however, residents say that the age of the underdog is over, and that the city that saved the Liberty Bell is finally coming into its own. It’s now a top study destination for students, and a favoured business location for millennials. The city’s arts, cuisine and culture currently attracts over 40 million tourists each year.

If you’re moving to Philadephia, you’ll want to know what it’s like to live in this cosmopolitan city. Schepens is a leading provider of removals to the city, so we asked some of our former clients how they find day-to-day life in Philly. Here’s what they told us.

Moving to Washington DC

It may look like a city from the outside, but moving to Washington DC is often described as arriving in a small country with a distinct culture. ‘The District’, as it’s known to locals, is the US capital city and its unique skyline is iconic. It’s home to the White House which makes it a primary destination for visitors and professionals from around the globe, and yet it manages to feel compact and easy to navigate.

Schepens travels to the USA regularly and has provided Washington removals to clients moving there for work or to live. Despite being frequent visitors, however, we don’t know what it’s like to live there. So we asked some of our clients who’d made their home there. This is what they told us.

Moving to Perth Australia from UK

When ocean liners were the best way to travel to Australia from the UK, Perth was the port where travellers would dock first. For this reason, the city has a long tradition of welcoming expats from the UK. Today, though, people from around the world choose to live here because of the stunning, powder white beaches, cosmopolitan city feel, and the laid back lifestyle Australia does so well.

What does it feel like to live on the other side of the world? We asked a group of expats who we’ve helped with their Perth removals over the years.

Schepens Offers a Guide to Moving to Spain

The Brits first fell in love with Spain back in 1972. That’s the date when the package holiday revealed the excitement of replacing the uncertain British summer with sun-drenched Spanish beaches. We’ve been holidaying, exploring, working in and planning for retirement to Spain ever since. Five years ago the numbers of British expats in Spain hit its height at 397,892.
