Now that we’re roughly one week into the latest lockdown measures, it’s important to try and find ways to keep yourself busy if you’re at home. Additionally, it’s worth having a general idea about what removals and storage services available. By doing this, you can prepare yourself for any issues that arise during the lockdown.
THE brand new, state of the art Tolworth depot for The Master Removers Group was all-singing, all-dancing recently when it was chosen by country-pop duo Ward Thomas as the backdrop to their latest music video.
The duo’s connections come via their father Anthony and his company of 40 years, Ward Thomas Removals – which was the founding brand of The Master Removers Group (MRG).

Over the last decade, there has been a steady increase in new residents in Dorset, and it’s considered a firm favourite for those seeking a better quality of life. And recent signs in the housing market and the data from property experts is people are planning on leaving London in droves. With things like improvements in transport links and remote working, the need to be in the capital is waning.
Dorset has always been a favourite destination for people who no longer feel at home in large cities anymore and want something else. The clean air, sunshine and outdoor experience are appealing for people with young children. It’s also ideal for people who need good transport links for business purposes. With high employment and low crime rates, Dorset ticks a lot of boxes, and there’s a lot of choices available.
Woods Removals keeps up to date with housing market trends and a lot more people moving from London due to lockdown. We put together a guide on everything you need to know about when moving with a young family.
The lockdown has been challenging for various reasons, and as the restrictions begin to ease, you might be thinking about relocating to Dorset. COVID-19 was a shock for everyone, but this can sometimes make us weigh up our options with regards to where we live. Dorset is a favourite destination for people leaving larger cities and towns so that they can pursue a better standard of life.
Woods Removals moves thousands of people into Dorset every year, and we have a good handle on what makes our county so appealing to new residents. That’s why we’re giving you some insights into the best way to plan and approach a relocation here.
Moving to a new house takes a lot of preparation work that needs some context to help people focus on how to begin the process. On average, it takes two or three months minimum to sell a house or apartment on the UK housing market, which is presently closed. That means you’ll have at least that long to research, plan, organise your relocation once the market opens again.
At Woods Removals, we’ll be with you every step of the way, which includes tips on planning your future relocation.
With whole populations confined to their homes in the UK and around the globe, we’re in times for which there’s no frame of reference. Shops are closed and businesses curbed to the bare minimum of activity. And yet it’s in these straitened circumstances that it’s become apparent just how vital the removals industry is to the health and prosperity of the people. We’re not just about moving people from one place to another; we’re part of of an intricate chain that has to stay in motion, or else catastrophe can occur. We often help people who are in the grip of immense personal challenges (e.g. Parkinson’s sufferers) and whose move will have an enhancing effect on their comfort and health.
“The housing market was effectively suspended by the government last night in an unprecedented move as the sector was plunged into chaos by the coronavirus outbreak.
Banks struggling with the volume of customer inquiries, difficulties with valuations and legal uncertainty has led ministers to call on people to delay moving.
Finance has dried up with mortgage providers ceasing to offer many new home loans. They include Lloyds, which owns the Halifax and Bank of Scotland and is the largest player in the market, and Barclays.”
If your ambition is to one day move into a bigger house, you might find that it’s too expensive to consider any time soon. For people who have young families, this can mean cramping everyone into smaller living spaces until you manage to save enough money. However, there are other options to deal with this issue, such as purchasing a property at auction to develop.
At Woods Removals, we are the ideal partner to help realise this project, should you go down this route.
