Are You Moving to Dorset from London? – We Can Help: Part Two

Posted on September 28, 2021 by Shaun Vallance
Are You Moving to Dorset from London? – We Can Help: Part Two

When it comes to significant shifts in the housing market, there tends to be one primary driver that dictates its direction. Interestingly, you would be hard pushed to say what major event is behind the recent surge in people buying properties outside of London. The pandemic will undoubtedly take most of the accolades, but Brexit is another reason why some people are leaving the capital.

However, we believe that a cultural shift in two things might be just as relevant when evaluating this situation. They both related to the lockdown but for slightly different reasons. Remote working now means you no longer need to spend all your time in the office. And because many are working from home, the need for better living conditions is why thousands are moving to more rural settings. That’s why we’re adding more context to our previous blog about people relocating from London to Dorset.

Declutter Your Home in Just One Week

Declutter Your Home in Just One Week

We all lead busy lives, and it’s sometimes difficult to keep on top of our storage spaces. A few of us might also be slightly guilty of holding onto things we don’t use anymore for future use. We let things slide and think we can sort everything out tomorrow. Then a few days turn into weeks, and before you know it, there’s no space left in the garage. The loft is full, and the spare room isn’t a room anymore; it’s a storage unit.

In most situations, you can resolve this problem by having a clean-up and a declutter. We usually suggest taking your time and spreading this over a few weeks. However, this isn’t always possible for a number of reasons, and we need to act with haste. It’s time to reclaim your home and declutter everything in just one week with Woods Removals.
