    How to choose the right company for your move

    Moving overseas comes with extra challenges and worries. If you’re about to see all your worldly possessions loaded and shipped to a totally new country, you want to be sure you’ve chosen the right removals company with expertise to make things run like clockwork .

    Firstly, you should ensure the company is certified to carry out overseas removals (this is required to gain entry to many European locations). We also advise moving with a BAR registered company, this gives you greater financial security and ensures your mover adheres to a strict code of conduct and removals practises.

    Simple Tips

    • Research potential movers to ensure any accreditations and certificates are valid.
    • Check independent review sites like Trustpilot and read reviews.
    • Ensure they have overseas removals permits.
    • Ask about their previous experience in international moves.
    • Make sure there are no hidden costs (mileage, crew accommodations, etc)

    7 Weird Facts About Belgium

    1. Taking The Mannekin!
      The 70cm Manneken Pis is considered the national symbol of Belgium. According to some the small statue is in honour of a young boy who saved Brussels from a potentially catastrophic fire by peeing on the fuse of an explosive. Another version of the myth says he was frozen by a witch after she caught him relieving himself on her house. The little guy stands proudly outside the Brussels Museum and is regularly dressed in different outfits to celebrate holidays and national events.
    2. Made In Belgium
      Belgium has given the world some wonderful inventions it is rightly proud of; the saxophone, waffles, French fries (take that Paris!), BMI (body mass index, probably because of all the waffles and fires), plastic, The Adventures of Tin Tin and the Smurfs.
    3. Who’s In Charge?
      If you’re the rebellious type who yearns for political reform or even revolution (“If you’re going to be revolting can you do it quietly, we’re trying to watch Bake Off!”), then you’ll be interested to know Belgium has shown it’s possible to function without a government at all. Despite having 1 federal government, 5 regional governments, 7 parliaments and a monarchy (currently a King), the country managed perfectly well when it took 541 days of negotiations to form a government in 2010. In total the country ran happily, with no formal government for 589 days. It took a further 200 days to assign 64 of the top posts. It happened again in 2019-20 when there was no recognised government for 652 days!
    4. Not Jo King
      In 1990 the country also had to do without its king. King Baudouin was dethroned for 36 hours because he stood against proposed abortion laws. In order for the government to pass the new legislation, they dethroned him, signed the law, then made him king again.
    5. Townies
      98% of Belgium’s population live in urbanised areas, one of the highest rates in the world. It also means the country has some of the best broadband and mobile phone coverage in Europe.
    6. Belgian Numbers
      Belgium has 3 official languages (Dutch, French and German), no one speaks ‘Belgian’.
      There are over 30 different types of Belgian waffles and they’re all delicious!
      There are over 1,000 different beers in Belgian. Some sources claim the number is closer to 2,000, meaning you could try a different beer in Belgium every day for 5 years!
      Belgium didn’t become a country until 1830.
    7. Low Point
      The highest point of Belgium, the Signal de Botrange on the High Fens plateau, stands tall at 694m. That’s actually shorter than the world’s tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa at 828m. Belgium along with the Netherlands and Luxembourg make up the ‘Low Countries’.

    Moving to Belgium – More Useful Information


    With so many digital, banking and media companies operating in Belgium there is a demand for skilled professionals. Brussels in particular has a large number of overseas residents and workers due partly to the many EU institutions based there, along with accompanying media and other services. Flanders to the north of Brussels also has large, international companies and institutions.


    As with any major capital city, areas of Brussels can be expensive. Comparatively Belgium does enjoy lower rents and house prices than cities like London, Bath and Brighton. There are excellent properties to be found at affordable prices and many larger companies offer assistance in finding short term rental accommodation and when buying property in the country.


    Living and working in Belgium and especially Brussels means that you’re never far from the UK. Eurostar train service to and from the UK is fast and can be more convenient than flying for those heading back to southern England. It takes under 2 hours to get from the centre of Brussels to the centre of London. There are direct flights to most major destinations. And no matter where you are in Belgium, you’re never more than a few hours away from Belgium’s North Sea coast which has some fantastic golden sandy beaches. Who knew?!?

    Easy Commuting

    Road and rail networks are excellent. Trains are busy but don’t suffer from the overcrowding highlighted in parts of the UK in recent years. In general commutes tend to be relatively short. Rail prices are also much cheaper than those in Britain.

    Work/Life Culture

    Overall the work/life balance and working culture is more relaxed in Belgium.  Employees enjoy greater legal protection, rights and social benefits such as vacation, which is usually a generous 5 or 6 weeks after the first year. The country also has more public holidays than the UK.

    Food & Drink

    Belgium has a world renown cuisine that rivals even the French. It draws on the cooking culture of near neighbours like France, Italy and Germany and some superb uniquely Belgian dishes to get your teeth into. There is also an enormous range of excellent Belgian beers to try!


    Media in Belgium is very international, especially television. Digital entertainment streaming services are widely available and the country has excellent telecommunications infrastructure. It’s common for Belgians to watch TV in English and UK and US channels and services are hugely popular and widely available. Books, music, movies are all sold in English. The BBC, SKY and most digital UK channels can be picked up in Belgium.

    Learning The Lingo

    Most Belgians speak pretty good English. English is the working language of many larger companies and European institutions based in Brussels. There is a big expat population and many people find they can get by just speaking English. However, learning French or Dutch (the nation’s two main languages) is advisable for better integration and to really get a feel for Belgian culture.

    Belgium is a great location whether you’re looking to emigrate long term or on a short work placement.
