A place in the sunshine!

Making a Place in the Sun a reality…

According to national figures, 400 Brits move abroad every day. That’s about 150,000 people emigrating a year (looking at the weather recently, you can’t really blame them!). Only around 4,000 to 8,000 of these are pensioners retiring abroad, with the rest presumably moving for a change in lifestyle, for work or studies or for family reasons.

Australia remains the most popular choice for people from Britain (perhaps they want to get as far away as they can!), followed by America and Spain.

As many of you will know, it can be stressful enough moving a few streets, let alone to an entirely different country! The red tape, differing rules and regulations and language barriers can make it a tricky experience.

McCarthy’s has 40 years experience at it, so never fear! We have international moving consultants to help with advice on packing, insurance, transportation and any customs regulations you need to bear in mind, and we work with trusted overseas partners so the door-to-door process is smooth and stress-free for you. If you want to store some of your goods here in the UK, until you get settled, we can sort that out for you.

If you’re moving to Europe an overland removal service is most likely, but for all those travelling further afield – such as number one Brit hot spot Australia – we regularly ship full or part containers (when you share a container with others to make up a full load and save you money).

So if the only thing putting you off your ‘Place in the Sun’ is how difficult the move might be, don’t worry, give us a call. Just make sure you send us a postcard when you get there!
