London hasn’t had an easy time of it over the winter. Just before Christmas, at the 11th hour, we were plunged into Tier 4 of the Covid-19 restrictions, upending plans and ushering tens of thousands of people to the nearest train station, desperate to escape the city before the midnight cut-off point. Then, once we’d readjusted to the new Tier, it was all-change again as we went into full lockdown along with the rest of the country. People who’d started planning house- or flat-moves during the summer, when restrictions were eased, began – quite understandably – to worry about whether they’d still be able to go ahead.
While Christmas this year will be very different for many of us, there’s room for optimism as we conclude what’s been a challenging twelve months. It has easily one of the most turbulent years in recent history, so it’s understandable that many looking forward to 2021. The festive season allows everyone to have some family time, even if some of that’s via a Zoom call.
For anyone who’s looking for a different way of working, there’s a new method which is, in fact, not new at all. Remote working is now trending and gaining mass appeal, both from an employer and employee perspective. It all kicked off from the previous lockdown where it was a necessity for companies to survive. The question is – what are the advantages of working from home?
The UK is now under a second national lockdown and there’s still plenty of uncertainty about where we go next. There’s one query we receive from a lot of people: ‘will I be able to move during this lockdown?’
Fortunately, we can give a definite answer to this one by saying, yes. It’s business as usual at Aussie. All our Greater London branches will be fully operational. In this blog, we’ll discuss how we perform safe removals and storage services.
There are various options available, which includes remote working and downsizing your office or workplace. This can provide enough cost-cutting measures to survive this latest lockdown in London.

Moving to a new home can be a stressful time, and it helps to reach out for help, rather than trying to do everything yourself. You’ll need to rally the troops and get everyone working together, which means you can delegate tasks to each family member.

A recent housing market trend shows a lot of people are leaving London with many more predicted to follow suit in the coming months. The numbers are significant enough to catch the attention of the top UK estate agents, who think it’s a result of the lockdown.
