We all have those quiet moments where we have time to take stock and look around our home. Inevitably, we’ll come across some things here and there that annoys us. It might happen if you’re rummaging in your garage trying to find a replacement kettle plug, but it’s spilling over with boxes and containers. Before you know it, you have no idea what’s in the loft, and the spare room is unusable.
It’s fair to say we could all do with taking inventory of our house or flat with a view of some improvements. We might be guilty of packing too many things into the storage spaces and then cramming more in with various storage containers. The Camp Hopson team are here to help you get more out of your living spaces. We’ll use this blog to discuss practical tips to achieve this with minimal costs.
While it might be rash to try to claim that moving can be easy, there’s a slight tendency for exaggeration for the potential difficulties ahead. People do have a habit of focusing on the negative aspects of your upcoming relocation rather than offering useful advice. Fortunately, it’s possible to give a polite smile and nod without taking anything onboard, as we have some productive tips.
The UK housing market has been one of the busiest business sectors recently, even during the first lockdown where restrictions were at their highest. Thousands of people are rethinking how they live, with many concluding significant changes are necessary. For some, it’s a new career, starting their own company or working from home on a full-time basis. Others want more from their homes and are looking at moving to enjoy properties with plenty of outside space, as well as more bedrooms.
It’s no secret – thousands of people are moving out of London or are thinking of doing so in the near future. Many are searching for a better quality of life in a bigger property and lots of outdoor space. It’s no secret that it’s possible to get all this for lower prices than most London properties. This has been a consequence of the lockdown where the city’s properties lack of outside areas couldn’t be more apparent.
In a previous blog, we discussed how to create a home office from the perspective of the individual. Now that remote working is here to stay, and it’s likely more companies will look into the possibility of sending their staff to work from their house or apartment. While it sounds like a good idea – how would a business owner start setting their employees up to do it?
Camp Hopson undertook several home office set-up jobs during the lockdown, and it’s something we’re happy to continue. We can perform this duty using our range of removals and storage services, with every package being flexible and adaptable. In this article, we’ll cover the necessary information to enable you to do this task, but it’s something our team can easily take over for you.
Whatever the size or nature of your upcoming move, entrusting it to Camp Hopson will ensure you get a high-quality service at excellent rates.

Camp Hopson is based in Newbury and has an illustrious history stretching back over a century. This gives us the kind of experience and expertise you cannot acquire through any means other than time.
