London is a rapidly changing place, with tens of thousands of people moving in or out of the city every month. Within the last decade, over half a million people will have left the capital for new adventures in other parts of the UK and overseas. Similarly, an influx of new London residents made the city their new home. And with thousands of new homes in the pipeline, the number of new Londoners will increase.
If you’re currently living abroad and you’re looking to return to London, it’s essential you use a reliable company. Anthony Ward Thomas works with an elite network of removals companies called the Master Removers Group. And we can collect you from anywhere in the UK and Europe for your upcoming relocation.

While no one ever claimed it would be easy, there’s no doubt that moving overseas is one of the most exciting and rewarding decisions you can make. No matter how it’s come about – whether through a job offer or simply as a result of your own desire for a big change – it’s a wonderful challenge. New opportunities and experiences await you, as does the chance to immerse yourself in a different culture. But before you breeze off the airport and embrace your new life, there’s usually plenty to do and even more to remember. Since we’re an international relocation service, we’ve helped huge number of people taking the overseas plunge, so here are some of our pointers:
Moving Abroad Checklist
Accommodation: If you’re not being supplied accommodation as part of a moving package with a company, you’ll need to find your own and make sure that all the utilities are set up before you arrive. While looking, you would also benefit from taking into account the cost of living, crime levels and schooling in your chosen area.
Language/Culture: If your new home is not an anglophone country, it’s a good idea to start learning the language. This will help you adapt and be connected to your local community. You’ll also have better dealings with officialdom, doctors, solicitors and so on. Researching local customs and values is another good start.
Schools: If you’re migrating with family, then finding a school for your children is vital. The state education in different countries works in different ways (and some countries don’t have such a thing at all). And what about English-speaking schools which might be easier on your offspring? Get in touch with the education authority in your new country to find out how to get the ball rolling and ensure you have all the right documentation so your children can be enrolled.
Children: It is perhaps your kids who will be most affected by the change, particularly because it’s a change over which they have limited control. You can take steps to prevent your child becoming the stereotypical lonely expat kid. Creating routine, helping them stay in touch with their old friends while simultaneously forging new ones, will prevent seclusion and isolation.
