Grants Removals and Storage has noticed a rise in the number of people moving out of London and Surrey.

Over the last two weeks Grants has either quoted a price to move or actually moved customers to Ashford, Bognor Regis, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Cumbria, Devon, Durham, Essex, Horsham, Oxford, Reigate, Scotland, Winchester, Warwickshire and Wales.

Del Grant, owner of Grants Removals and Storage, said: “As part of this increasing trend more people are moving much further afield. Many of our customers seem to be cashing in on the equity in their homes and buying cheaper houses across the UK.

“As their properties are not increasing in value as much as they have in the past, they are regularly buying bigger houses and keeping cash in the bank.”

One of our customers recently sold a flat in Sutton and moved to Devon. He purchased a property three times the size of his flat and did not know anyone in the area.

Over the last 20 years Grants has been used to moving customers short distances and could rely on repeat business. However, as they are relocating so much further away it is unlikely our team will be moving many of them in the future unless they get homesick and come back to London.
