Moving to South Wales

Moving to South Wales

Anyone who has travelled around South Wales will know how diverse the region is. From the busy life of Cardiff, Newport and Swansea to the relaxing towns in the Rhondda, South Wales offers an ideal living environment for everyone.

Busy towns like Ammanford in South-West Wales serve as both a hub for local villages and a prime location for commuting to Swansea and Llanelli. Ammanford is only a few miles from the Brecon Beacons National Park, but you won’t have to travel that far to appreciate the area’s beauty. The tree-lined Amman River runs through the town and together with the smaller River Loughor helps the town green and fresh.

Bridgend sits south of the M4, between Swansea and Cardiff. With a large industrial estate and a prime location, its many businesses serve both of the major cities as well as other large towns such as Barry and Cowbridge. With some history of coal mining and ironworks, Bridgend developed into an agricultural market town and later into a commercial hub.

If you are planning to move to South Wales from further afield, it may be worth asking a South Wales removals company for a quote. Removals companies often travel back to their depot empty, which means if you have a small load, the company may offer a cheaper price in return for some flexibility on the time and date of collection.

The most professional removers invest in training and equipment to ensure the customers goods are appropriately protected. They provide insurance, written quotes and additional services such as packing fragile items and antiques.

Generally, a professional removals company will be in a trade association, like AIM, which insists they work to a Code of Practice to ensure the customer receives a high standard of service.

The Association of Independent Movers has members all over the UK, most of which provide short and long distance house removals, international moves and a range of related services, such as export wrapping, commercial moves and overseas shipping.

COVID 19 Statement

The partial lock-down in the UK has led to many movers wondering if they are required to temporarily shut down their business.

Before you make a decision, please consider the following.

The lock-down is aimed primarily at non-essential retail and leisure in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.

Transport and freight are considered essential.


If you choose to continue working, there are a few steps you can take to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

Follow the guidelines issued by the Government and instruct your staff to do likewise.

For domestic removals, clean all door handles and handrails, etc at both premises with an appropriate sanitiser.
Frequently clean all equipment (including vehicle cab interiors) with soap and water or a sanitiser.
Only send the minimum number of staff required (usually 2) to complete the job.
Request from the customer that they ask family and friends to stay away during the move.
Ask the customer to keep their distance during the move.
Don’t do home-visit surveys. Conduct surveys over the phone or by video call.

AIM believes that you should avoid all unnecessary work, but carry out essential work if possible.

AIM can’t and won’t tell you whether you should close your business. That is your decision.
