Woman chases Olympic dream by moving to Germany

A woman has revealed she is moving to Germany to chase her Olympic dream.

According to reports in the Leicester Mercury, Jenn Taylor is determined to compete in the 2012 games, to be held in London. She is part of Great Britain’s women’s volleyball team.

As well as getting ready to head to foreign shores, the sporting enthusiast has also given up a well paid job working in schools in order to try to achieve her goal.

The reason she has decided to make the transition to another country is so she can ensure she plays in enough games before the deadline for the Olympics.

She said: “It means I will be playing week in, week out, getting matches on a regular basis, which is what we all need. The level is far higher than we can find in England.”

Commenting on the prospect of moving to Germany, she added: “It is a massive challenge for everyone. For me, I’ll be taking a huge pay cut and living in a country with people I’ve never met.”

The original plan was to send Ms Taylor and all her team mates to one country to prepare. However, this fell through due to a lack of funding.

Instead, they are being sent to a number of different nations – potentially meaning some will be moving to France.

Meanwhile, talking about her dedication to the task ahead, Ms Taylor remarked: “The sacrifices are huge and I have not underestimated them, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance.”

She added she would regret it if she did not put in the maximum effort to achieve her aim. This may well be a sentiment shared by the rest of the team, including those moving to France and other countries.

According to its organisers, the London 2012 Games have been the catalyst for the transformation of a section of east London.

The Benefits of Travel

In the recent general election, one of the hot topics was that of immigration and the effects this has on jobs. With the development of the European Union one of the key changes has been with border controls. People who live in E U member states are no longer considered citizens of just their country of birth but are also citizens of Europe. As such they have rights to travel and work in other member states and are entitled to the benefits not only of their country of origin but also of the country they move to. This has led to the development of a more flexible mobile workforce.

When we think of UK citizens moving abroad we usually think of people buying holiday homes and moving to France or Spain. However if we consider countries like Germany it is more likely that people will be moving there because of work.

If you are considering moving to Germany then we at European Removal Experts can help to make the transition as pain free as possible.

Once there it is also good to know that under EU legislation citizens of one country are entitled to the same benefits such as medical help.

Sometimes these benefits continue to be paid directly by the UK directly to you and sometimes they are paid to the country you are resident in and they in turn provide the same service as would be received by a native resident.

Also once you are working and paying into local tax and social insurance packages you are also entitled to additional benefits such as unemployment benefit and assistance when looking for work.

It is therefore good to know that even when making a big step like moving to Germany, you will not be without support should things not go entirely as planned.

Man and Van Services from European Removal Experts

Whether you’re moving to Germany, organising an office removal project or you simply need to transfer some of your belongings from one place to another, the job can seem daunting. The amount of legwork involved is enough to make you dread the task at hand, and undoubtedly force you to consider using a removal service to help you along the way.

However, the expense of such services and the time restrictions in which removal companies operate can often leave you with no choice but to organise your entire move solely around their availability. This has quite often proven to be extremely costly and inconvenient for many, particularly those moving to Germany or other European locations, which is precisely why European Removal Experts have made their competitive services all about the customer. We have made our services so diverse that even if you and your family or office are moving to France, we can provide an affordable removal service for you.

If you need your belongings moved to Scotland, Ireland or any major city in the UK, we at European Removal Experts offer “Man and Van” services to cater for a wide variety of specific removal needs. We specialise in household and office removals of any size, and our services operate during the day, evenings and weekends for a service that suits you.

All of our vans are fully insured and have a large 15 metre cubic capacity, making them suitable for even the largest-scale removal project. Our competitive prices start at one Man with Van costing as little as £250 for an entire 8-hour day of use.

European Removal Experts also offer assitance with removals all over Europe, so even if you’re moving to France or Germany, we can help you.

Germany - Here We Come

Germany – Here We Come

Moving to Germany may be the sort of undertaking that fills an individual with trepidation. For any of us, moving house, or simply moving part of a houses contents involves dealing with companies and activities that few of us deal with on a regular basis. Moving overseas increases complications through the greater complexity involved in crossing a controlled border in addition to encountering different local customs and legislation. Lastly, let’s not forget, a different language. Whilst it is possible to navigate around much of Europe with English as an only language, a bit more versatility both smoothes the path and engenders a more positive relationship with those you meet.

At European Removal Experts, our service is primarily geared up to assisting people moving to Germany or even possibly the other direction (back from Germany). We are a London based company which, being close to the midpoint between the continent and the UK, makes us ideally located for planning moves between the UK and the continent. Our aim is to move goods efficiently whether it is a complete house move or simply a smaller quantity of special items such as valuables or large pieces of furniture.

Moving to Germany is offered as a door to door service but there are also discount services available. These are offered where container space is shared by many customers on a scheduled basis. This enables a very cost effective method for moving to Germany from anywhere in the UK.

Customs clearance and all of the complications surrounding any house move are handled as part of the moving to Germany service and this enables the customer to focus their energies on other aspects of the house move, such as soft furnishings and possibly brushing up on a bit of sprechen sie Deutsch? Why use anybody other than specialists in this area for your house move?

Destination Deutschland

Germany is the largest economy in Europe and therefore it has seen a considerable influx of British professionals moving to Germany in order to take advantage of its booming industries – not to mention its rich culture and stunning natural environments. Whatever your reasons for moving to Germany, however, there are a few British items that you just wont be able to find in Deutschland, so if you are a sucker for home comforts, you might just want to take them with you.

For example, it might surprise you to learn (considering that Germany is such a bratwurst loving country!) that you probably won’t be able to get British style bacon. Also, British staples such as brown sauce won’t be easy to come by, and if you do find some it won’t be cheap.

Anyone moving to Germany should also be prepared for the customary plug adaptors in order to get your electrical appliances working, but it might surprise you to learn that if you’re a Sky subscriber you should be able to get your system working in Germany!  Of course bacon and Sky TV aren’t part of the major considerations, and you should enjoy adapting your lifestyle towards the German way of doing things – that’s part of the reason for relocating to Germany, after all.

So how exactly will you get all these home comforts to Germany, anyway? Well with European Removal Experts we can not only help you with your move, but we can do for affordable rates without compromising on quality. We can help you with moving to Germany, no matter how small or large your items are.

Is Great Food And Drink The Best Reason For Moving To Belgium?

Best Reason For Moving To Belgium?

Most people think of chocolate when they think of Belgium, and for good reason. Belgium hosts some of the greatest artisan chocolate makers on earth. Non-chocolate lovers would tell you to visit Belgium for the beer, while others might say to skip it entirely; Bruges was recently voted the most boring city in Europe.

Holland has a reputation – mostly down to Amsterdam – for being more exciting and racy than Belgium, but in truth they share many of the same characteristics that makes moving to Holland open to similar considerations as moving to Belgium.

Both countries have a friendly but reserved local population. Before moving to Belgium, do not expect that you will immediately fall into a group of great friends. It will take time to meet people and from there it will take time to become a friend and not just an acquaintance. Learning the very basics of the working languages of Belgium and Holland before moving to Belgium or moving to Holland, will help to ease your way into these friendships. Being able to speak a little of the local language will also make it easier and more enjoyable for you to do everyday basic things such as food shopping and going out for a drink.

Both Belgium and Holland benefit from great food and drink – everything from chocolate to beer to Dutch cheeses. In the cosmopolitan capital cities of both Belgium and Holland you will find a wide range of cuisine from many countries.

Art and culture are two other reasons for moving to Belgium and Holland. Visiting museums and galleries are a great way of getting to know the area, and also give you something to discuss with your potential friends.

Moving abroad is a challenging and exciting experience but planning in advance will help smooth the journey. Worried about getting your furniture and much-loved possessions to your new home?

Removals to Wuppertal

The German city of Wuppertal might be most famous for its monorail or “floating tram”, but it should be equally recognized for giving the whole world two of the most widely used products of today, namely the drug commonly known as Aspirin and the equally common household appliance known as the Kobold vacuum cleaner. In fact, the company that patented Aspirin has survived to this day, and is currently a huge pharmaceutical company, Bayer AG.

The city itself, located in North Rhine-Westphalia, cradled in the valley of the Wupper River, is no less impressive in size, counting about 350 thousand inhabitants and standing as the biggest urban settlement in the Bergisches Land. It is an incredibly green city, so rich in parks and woodlands that such green areas actually constitute approximately two-thirds of its total area. Which makes it very easy for anyone looking for a short respite from the world of concrete to reach any of the said green areas, as, from any point in the city, a park or woodland alley is only minutes away.

Surprisingly enough, though, the city also remains an important industrial unit, with companies operating in the field of metallurgy, textiles, electronics, printing equipment, and pharmaceuticals, among others. It is also home to institutes and institutions of note, such as the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, the University of Wuppertal, famous for being the second German university to receive a supercomputer (the ALiCEnext), and the European Institute for International Economic Relations.

The city provides both visitors and inhabitants with numerous attractions, ranging from technological wonders that are more than one hundred years old, to its 4500 buildings classified as national monuments, to famous cultural highlights such as museums and concert halls. Also worth mentioning are the municipal botanical garden and the extensive Burgholz arboretum, the city Zoo, an attractively landscaped park inhabited by over 4500 animals from all corners of the world, the XVIII century museum house dedicated to Friedrich Engels, a sculpture park, a dance theatre, as well as the Stadthalle concert hall, remarkable for both its architecture and its excellent acoustics. Last, but not least, is the suspended monorail that was set up in 1901 and still functions today, unparalleled in the whole world.

Great Reasons to Move to France

Great Reasons to Move to France

Whichever region of France you choose to move to from the UK, the country has no shortage of attractions to discover and explore. Enticing regions include Paris with its romantic boulevards, restaurants, art galleries and museums, Brittany with its beautiful beaches and the Loire Valley and Champagne areas with their famous vineyards, as well as the unforgettable French Riviera. There are many reasons to relocate to France, including the high standard of education and healthcare, the fabled cuisine and the typically Mediterranean weather and relaxed lifestyle.

Although, on a practical level, the process of moving to France is considerably easier today than it was once due to the country being a fellow EU member state to the UK, moving anywhere abroad remains an upheaval. You will find the process less stressful if you prepare well. You will have to decide on your preferred region to live in, find a suitable property and then obtain a mortgage. It therefore makes sense to choose a removal company as soon as you reasonably can.

There are many fantastic reasons to use our removal services to France. We cater to all of the French regions with our furniture removals, which include part loads and full loads. We always aim to provide the best quality customer service, which includes paying attention to the individual needs of our customers and tailoring our services accordingly to ensure that your move overseas goes as well as it can. We can give you advice on successfully moving to Germany, France or any other European destination, including information on time schedules. Whether you are moving to France, or are instead considering moving to Germany, Switzerland, Holland or Belgium, we aim to take the stress out of your move so that you can enjoy settling in at your new home or business address.
