The end of the current lockdown restrictions is up for review at the beginning of March, and people and businesses in London aren’t sure what happens next. Depending on the Covid-19 infection rates, it might be good or bad news, with most hoping to ease things like free movement. There will be those who have relocations in the works and want to look into the possibility of using storage.
Without a shadow of a doubt, 2020 was a wakeup call for London’s business community, and it was a year no one saw coming. It also brought about some new solutions, and it’s clear that remote working is now an ongoing feature of modern business.
It’s likely that thousands of new businesses will start in 2021. One of the consequences of the lockdown is that people want more control over their lives. A conscious decision for many is to take back control, whether at home or the way they work. This tends to favour start-ups and solopreneurs, which poses an interesting question: could the future of business be smaller enterprises?
As our name suggests, we’re somewhat of an authority on all things man & van in London. It’s a highly sought-after removal service that gives people an efficient, cost-effective way of moving. And most removals providers offer it as part of their list of services. You might be asking – but isn’t this the same service from all removals companies?
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. We’ll go into more detail on a few different approaches to see if it fits your business’s requirements.
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. It’s also a good idea to read up on tips for relocating to avoid many common problems others made.
