London, being the capital, has always been the place to go for work and life prospects but it’s got competition with Manchester rapidly becoming the powerhouse of the North. The gravitational pull to this vibrant city is hard to ignore, its growing city living population is creating a pulsating place to live and work.

Nick Willis from manandvan.net, a leading moving service provider based in Manchester has seen a big increase in the number of people moving to Manchester from London. In the first quarter of 2015 removal bookings are up 20% on the previous year. Nick says “Manchester property is such an attractive proposition compared to London’s property prices and Manchester has so much going for it, outside of London it’s the best place in my opinion for food, music, culture and just good quality lifestyle. I always ask my customers who are moving to Manchester from London what it is that attracts them and its always positive feedback, be it the housing prices, work, the warm Mancunion welcome or just the good standard of living.” West executive director of the Homes and Communities Agency, Deborah McLaughlin Speaking at MIPIM in Cannes, also said “Manchester is a great city to live and is now widely recognized as one of the most livable cities in the world ahead of New York, London and Milan. Manchester has gone from an industrial Lowry landscape to a funky diverse place to live work.

Manchester has a rich heritage with facilities for people of all backgrounds, positives are many including the largest single site university in the UK with the biggest student population, many of which stay in Manchester adding youth and vibrancy.

Man and Van Spain expats returning to Spain

man and van to SpainMan and Van UK Removals to Spain.

Many from the United Kingdom wish to achieve the dream of someday moving abroad. Be it retirement, a new job or just the chance to change things up a little, more often than not the destination is Spain

Why Spain? Well Brits have been traveling there for decades. A short plane journey and great weather have always made it a hotspot destination for people of all ages and walks of life. Many have fallen in love with the country and choose to uproot theirs lives and move.

Recent years have seen a decline in the economy, so many assume that the dream of moving over to Spain from the UK is nothing more than that –a dream.

Man and Van UK Removals to Spain believe otherwise however. Having been at the forefront of the removal and relocation of British citizens to Spain for a number of years, what we see tells a different story, one telling us that this dream of moving on is not only an attainable one, but a lot easier than you may think. Taking bookings from across the nation, Man and Van UK Removals to Spain have seen a great number of increases of people making enquiries. Simply put the numbers are showing no signs of subsiding, with numerous interested UK nations wanting help with their move to Spain.

So why are so many continuing to relocate to sunny Spain? There are a plethora of reasons why 20people might fancy the adventure of moving from Britain to Spain.

Firstly, there is property – or more specifically the prices of property. Over in Spain property prices have never been lower! That’s why many are taking the chance to cash in while the market is good. It is a market for buyers, and buyers are finding themselves great deals on property across the country. What is better than getting a new property in Spain? Getting property in Spain at an amazing price!

The economy of Europe has been turbulent over the past few years to say the least, and with it the currency rates. However recent stability has made the pound stronger than it had been, so you are now getting the best value for the euro in years – a perfect time to capitalize when considering a move to Spain.

Unfortunately the UK weather is off putting too many, so if it’s a warmer climate they seek, there are plenty of choices across the world. The Mediterranean climate of Spain is well noted, and one of the reasons it is such a popular destination. No reason to spend a fortune going half way across the world for the sun!

Finally, we all know how hard it can be being away from loved ones. It’s a reason many will put off moving somewhere new, particularly when going as far as Spain. However, when you consider how far it really is, its and ideal location for people moving from Britain.

Only a few short hours on the plane, and easily reachable by vehicle, it is ideal for those who want to journey back and forth. Be it you have two homes or you like to visit those back home, Spain’s relative closeness to the UK makes it a perfect relocation destination, and another reason why so many chose to go there https://www.manandvan.net/overseas/

Moving home after break up

Moving home story with a justified ending

I spent the first day packing my possessions into removal boxes and packing crates.Bad house smells

On the second day, I had the removal company come and load all my belongings.

On the third day, I sat down for a last meal at the magnificent dining table by candle light, I put on some blues background music, and indulged myself on shrimp, caviar and steak and a bottle of champagne.

When I had finished my fine meal, I went into each room and every room of the house and placed several half eaten shrimp shells plunged in caviar into the ends of the curtain rods.

I then cleaned up washed the pots and left…

When the ex-wife returned with her lover, all was heaven for the first few days.

Then gradually, the house began to emanate a terrible smell.

They tried cleaning, mopping and airing the place out everything.

Drains were checked for blockages and carpets were steam cleaned.

Air fresheners were hung throughout the house. Rentokil were brought in to fumigate the whole houses, for this period of time they had to move into a hotel, even paying to replace the costly wool carpeting. Nothing worked and they were totally fed up

Visitors stopped calling.

Workmen snubbed the work offered in the house.

The house worker cleaner left.

Finally, they could not handle the reek any longer and decided to move out.

A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house.

After a month they decided to reduce the price after the smell had run any potential buyers away and in the end even the local estate agent declined to return their calls.

Finally, they had to get a new mortgage to buy another house. House move

I called the ex-wife and asked how life was going.

She told me the story of the putrid house. I listened courteously and told her how much i missed my old home and would be eager to buy the house back.

Thinking I had no idea how bad the smell was she agreed on a price that was half what the house had been worth, but only if I would agree to sign the papers that day.

I agreed and without further delay she had the papers sent by courier from her solicitors that very day.

Two weeks later conveyance paper work completed her and her boyfriend stood amused as they watched the removal company load the van to take them to their new home…..

And to spite me, they even took the curtain rods.

I used man and van to move my stuff back in!

The Master Musicians of Joujouka

Master Musicians of Joujouka

As you know Man and Van is a fan of Brian Jones and being a fan of Brian Jones I have discovered The Master Musicians of Joujouka. In the southern Rif Mountains of Northern Morocco Bachir Attar is the leader of the Master Musicians of Joujouka. Joujouka is an ancient village where the Master Musicians and the sanctuary saint Sidi Ahmed Sheikh live. muscians joujoukaThe secrets and music of Joujouka have been passed down in generations for around 4000 years. The musicians are taught how to play this unique way of playing this complex music and after years of learning and concentration they finally become Malims of Masters. When they are finally called Malims or Master the possess Baraka which is the blessing of Allah and it gives them the power to heal, and they have the ability to play the most powerful music around.
The kingdom of Morocco has employed the Master Musicians to play for the king for many centuries. Being the kings royal musicians, they got privileges and to prove this they were given papers detailing there rights.
In the 1960 the Master Musicians did there first recording led by Bachir Attar’s farther (Hadji Abdessalem Attar), including Brian Jones.
Once a year for a couple of days you can buy tickets to go over to Joujouka and stay with the master musicians and there families. This is very generous of the Moroccan families as they supply you with food, drink, a place to stay, entertainment and a chance to join in with the festival and learn a bit about there culture.
Burning DanceManchester removals has known about the festival for a good few years now, but it’s only now that I’m thinking of packing my bags and going over there. I’ve always wanted to but always been to busy, But luckily I’ve now had a place reserved for me to go over in June 2010 because there are only 50 places altogether. This is going to be an amazing experience and I can’t wait.
Man and Van does removals from the UK to Spain, which is a ferrie ride away from Morocco so hopefully round about the time Man and Van goes over to Joujouka i will have a job going there anyway instead of one of the workers. No rest for the wicked!!!!

Diversion through Cheltenham to London Brian Jones Grave

Man and Van to Cheltenham

Man and van is a big fan of Brian Jones. I can probably guess what you’re thinking, who is Brian Jones? Brian Jones is the founding member of  The Rolling Stones, who introduced blues music to the UK some of the most influential people of that era i.e. Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Elmore James and Chuck Berry . He died in 1969 at the age of 27 in the swimming pool at Cotchford far m the house once owed by A.A.Milne the author of  Winnie the pooh and was said to have drowned, there has been suspicions that he was murdered which personally i believe.Brian Jones Grave
On the way back from a Manchester to London removal i made a decoy through Cheltenham to see his grave and some properties he once occupied i arrived in Cheltenham town Center near the shops at around 4pm, and just as i arrived at the graveyard it was closing for the night. Well i was given five minute to look for his grave and couldn’t find it so i was asked to leave. I was really disappointed I’d drove miles out of my way to see his grave so i waited for the workers to leave and snuck back in, climbing over the spiked railing. Eventually i found the grave. It was an amazing experience and also quiet sad but it was worth the long distance traveling.




THE LOST STONE BRIAN JONES?

THE LOST STONE BRIAN JONES

Man and Van is a big fan of Brian Jones. Brian Jones is the founding member of The Rolling Stones. There would be no Rolling Stones without him. Lewis Brian Hopkin-Jones was born to a loveless childhood on the 28th of February 1942 at the Park Nursing home Cheltenham, the eldest of three children, one of whom, Pamela, died tragically young at the age of two. His second sister Barbra was just four years his junior.sold his soul to the devil
Brian had a passion for music from a young age and music seemed to run in the family, his mother, Louisa Beatrice Jones was a piano teacher so Brian learnt to play quiet young until he was fourteen. At twelve he started learning to play the clarinet for the school orchestra and after two years was the lead clarinetist. Brian’s rebellious side started earlier in life, but despite that he got nine 0-level passes in the general certificate of education and two A-levels in physics and chemistry.
Brian had a real passion for ethnic American music, Rhythm and Blues such as the great  Chuck Berry, Robert Johnson ( in the picture on the right), Elmore James and B.B.King and wanted to start his own R & B band, so Brian packed his bags and moved to London after exploring Europe. He had been going down to the clubs in London and had met people who had the same ambitions and love for music he did.
London was where he met Mick Jagger and Keith Richards but at this point he already had a band and he didn’t invite them to join him at first. Mick and Keith were amazed with his musical skill on especially on the guitar. After a while Brian invited Keith to join his band because one of the guitar players had left threw work but Keith wanted Mick to join as well, Brian agreed. For the next few year the founding member of the band Brian Jones would be the leader of the band getting Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman in the clan too. Brian got them all there gigs in the clubs and it was him who knew all the right people, but at first people didn’t like them because there hair grew over their ears and they looked grubby but the more they played the more people wanted to hear them. The Rolling Stones aim was never to be pop stars they just wanted to bring blues music to England and spread round the country.
Brian JonesThrough the years of fame Brian was in and out of psychiatric clinic for depression, paranoia and addition, he lost the one women he loved above all others to Keith Richards which led him to go deeper in to depression and drug abuse and in 1969 Mick and Keith came to Brian’s house Cotchford farm once occupied by A.A.Milne (Author of Winnie the Pooh) and kicked him out of his own band.
Three weeks after being dropped from his own band Brian was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool on the 2nd of July 1969. His builder Frank Thorogood murdered him after a dispute over money. Brian had his live taken at the early age of  27 along with Kurt Cobain, Janice Joplin and Jimi Hendrix etc.

Removal to Scotland

Scotland removals to Manchester

Man and Van has done a removal from Preston to Scotland today, when we arrived in Glasgow there was no one at the residence and no one was answering the phone so instead of waiting around Man and Van went looking for some shops to get something to eat. The area was called the Gorbals which I believe from being told that it was known for being notoriously rough in past years. We had to drive around for at least half an hour before we found a Gregg’s bakery. What a miserable day it’s been, it hasn’t stopped raining all day, and I wish we were doing a removal to sunny Spain but we’re not living in a dream ‘shame’. This morning I thought better rap up warm because it was freezing and I was right as soon as Manchester removals arrived in Preston it started raining which hasn’t help with the aerial on the radio or on the dongle. Never mind because the drive up to Scotland hasn’t been bad at all. There is a lot of scenery to look at, it would of look a lot nicer if the weather had been better but it’s still lovely to look at. Luckily an hour and a half later the customer was in, she had a broken leg so apologised for not being able to help, I think she felt bad but we didn’t expect her to help especially when she had broken her leg trying to bring her belongings up to Scotland herself. She had asked a friend if he could borrow a van and take her up to Scotland with her stuff and he said yes, On the way to Scotland they hit the hard shoulder as that happened the gear box came out and crushed the girls leg breaking it. Unfortunately the van toppled over ready to roll down a hill they managed to break free from the van but most of their belongings had been battered and broken so Man and Van only moved a few bags and boxes, the rest was no good.
After unloading we headed straight home to Manchester  from Glasgow. It had been a good day on the road, the motorways were clear going there and coming back. I was glad to get home though so i could relax, have a bath and get straight in bed for the next day of removals.

We do regular removals to Scotland from Manchester covering areas from Aberdeen Inverness and Glasgow to Edinburgh

Removals to Spain

Why move to Spain

With Nicks man and van to Spain More Than 550,000 Britons Now Own Property in Spain. The British are coming the British are coming. Well, yes, they are but, this time to Spain and not to Canada. The British are moving out of the UK in droves and are buying up property in Spain. One in three Brits wants to retreat to Spain. Spain is cheaper than the UK, has lovely weather all year round, Spaniards are friendly, the wine is great, and the Spanish government is very welcoming. I have been toying with the idea of moving to Spain. Spain really is heaven on earth.

Over half a million Brits now own property in Spain. In some small Spanish villages, they make up a large ratio of the population. More than 25% of them are qualified to vote in Spain on national issues, and voting rights on local issues look to be soon to follow. Spain is becoming home to the English, but why. The United Kingdom is one of the priciest countries in Europe. Taxes are high, the crime rate is rising, immigration is a mess, the weather is terrible, and a lot of British feel the government stopped listening to them years ago. In a sensible way, the removals to spainBritish, on the whole, are a really unhappy moaning people.

Many UK citizens will dream of one day removals to Spain and retiring in sunny Spain. After all, thousands of people have done so in the past, and thousands more are planning to do so in the future. Considering the many benefits of living in and buying property in Spain for your retirement such as the lower cost of living, excellent local cuisine and fantastic climate why wouldn’t you want to move to this beautiful country? When you get a definite date for your move it is best to get your removal company booked often certain dates or times of the month can be very busy with end of contracts and exchanges falling on the same dates try our online removal quotes fill in quote form only takes couple minutes. So what are you waiting for the weather is beautiful all year round and the Spanish beach resorts are some of the prettiest in the world. The way of life in Spain is more relaxed than in the UK

Nearly all major cities and towns now have storage companies, so it is a good idea to get two or three quotes usually based on price per cubic meter, if you need to make regular trips to access your belongings it may be a good idea to book a storage company that is close by always visit the storage facility before booking your unit to get an idea that it is run correctly reputable storage companies are usually members of storage trade associations.

Some storage companies offer 24 hour access while others operate on a 9 to 5 basis with limited hours on weekends so check the opening hours, If you have a big consignment to store always allow for unloading and do not turn up 10 minutes before closing time.
Most Self Storage companies will have units over a number of floors but have goods lifts which are big enough to take most household items, however also be geared up to have to carry things upstairs. Barrows and sack trucks will be available to help with getting belongings from the van to your storage room make use of these; let them do the work not your back!
Goods not allowed to be stored area any flammable goods, explosives, perishable foodstuffs or goods or materials of a dangerous or illegal nature check with the storage company about their terms and conditions but most will not allow these goods.
Clean your garden equipment before storing it, Bikes, Metal tools and Tools can be prevented from rusting if they are to be in storage for a long time by wiping with an oily rag before storing.
