Why Move To Bolton

 

Bolton’s booming – two words not often put together. But, says the cabal of property seers, this week it’s Bolton’s turn to be Britain’s Biggest Property Bargain! Prices have zoomed more than 130% in five years.

What’s its secret? Is it the Peter Kay factor? It would take a stalker of monumental obsession to trade just another post-industrial mill town for a glimpse of their star.

No, it’s our old friend, the Ain’t Nowhere Vaguely Nice And Even Remotely Affordable Left factor. Priced out of la-di-da Manchester, people are discovering the charms of the friendly locals, the good schools, the proper market, the towering town hall, the well priced and rather nice in parts property, and not forgetting the steam museum. Money’s pouring in somewhere, because Churchgate’s got lovely new stone setts, and a cultural quarter (ooh, get her) is promised.

Are you moving in and around Bolton? Moving house can be stressful at the best of times and with bills to pay, post to redirect and home insurance to source, there is more than enough to start thinking about. One thing you are certainly going to have to start thinking about in plenty of time is how you are going to move your personal belongings to your new home.

Many people underestimate the scale of the task and hire a removals van for a few hours to do it themselves. Only to later come unstuck when they have more items than they first thought, get the timing wrong and end up shelling out more money, or worse still, damage their own goods. Moving home furnishings is a skill and whether you are looking to move to a larger home or downsize, it will require careful planning to ensure everything runs smoothly.
