Why Move To Rochdale
The town centre regeneration programme in Rochdale is still in progress which means that the most popular residential areas tend to lie a little further out of town.

The jewel in the crown is the attractive village of Littleborough which sits five miles north-west of Rochdale’s town centre but still remains part of the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale.
A couple of miles to the east of Rochdale’s heart you’ll find the sought after suburb of Bamford which is home to some of the area’s largest and most desirable properties. In the north west of the borough, either side of the A680 which leads to Edenfield, is the popular village of Norden which boasts good schools and a broad range of housing options.
Removals Company Rochdale
Are you moving in and around Rochdale? 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.
