If you are considering a home, office or business move, you will probably be a little preoccupied with all things removal. There is some interesting reading around this subject available on the internet, from websites like Property Academy. Predominantly aimed at businesses and landlords, they conduct surveys which identify home moving trends, and their online results give some insight into the choices people make when wanting to relocate, and their experience with different professionals during the process.
The BBC website has a comprehensive Homes section with advice for home movers, and there are also links to other helpful sites. Most of these sites have handy tick lists which ensure that nothing is forgotten when preparing for your move. They usually begin a countdown to the move beginning about a month before or whenever the completion date is. These lists assist with thinking ahead, and include things like who to inform, dealing with bills and services and when to do what.
Home, Office or Business Removals, Comprehensive Service, Friendly Staff, South Benfleet, Essex
Moving to a new home or a self built home, is favoured by many as there is no property chain to worry about, the building is there waiting for you. Also you wont need the time and money involved in using surveyors etc, and you probably wont need to decorate or make repairs unless you wish to. Another big plus with this type of home, is that the properties are usually fitted with the latest security features, circuit breakers, smoke and fire alarms and other kinds of innovative technology.
The average new home normally comes complete with excellent insulation and energy saving devices, and is typically up to four times more energy efficient than a traditional second hand home. Normally in a setting which is convenient for shopping and schools, new homes are designed to offer as many advantages as possible along with an eco friendly, low cost living experience. Its worth checking to see if there is any chance of a part exchange arrangement, and if you do your homework you could end up with a financially great deal, as well as a beautiful new home in a location like Essex.
New Holidays in Essex, Southend to Canvey Island & Rayleigh, Coastal Views, Essex
There is a charming book shown on the Canvey Island org website, written in 1891, the title of which is ‘New Holidays in Essex’, by Percy Lindley. The book details a walking route from Southend to Canvey Island and Rayleigh, heading firstly towards South Benfleet before changing direction and proceeding towards the right, where the town of Rayleigh lies. The creation as dry land, of Canvey Island was undertaken in 1622 by Dutchman Joas Croppenburgh. He acquired one third of its six thousand acres on condition that he protected the area from the tide. He and a group of others built tiny hexagonal cottages just 11 feet in height and width, with brick foundations and a superstructure of mud and cockle shells. Canvey Island was a curacy until 1881, and one of the locals stated to the vicar, “We never buried no one here till you came, except them as was drownded.” There is a definite Dutch feel to this coastal Essex location, with its Dutch cottages and dykes, and Dutch customs are frequently observed too. On holidays and other occasions, the Sluice House often reproduces celebratory scenes such as Teniers’ fiddler, with its merrymaking and dancing.
Beach pursuits such as bathing, or fishing and boating can be enjoyed near the somewhat dubiously named Deadman’s Point. There is a sturdy elevated sea wall en-route with impressive views of the Thames as it reaches the sea, and the picturesque ruins of Hadleigh Castle.

South Benfleet and the surrounding areas are ideal for walkers, and the Essex Walks website displays details of a stimulating trek through a newly created bird sanctuary which follows the Thames Estuary path and ends at South Benfleet where there are pubs and a railway station. Although the Bowers Marsh RSPB reserve walk, is not the easiest terrain as it is still under development, and dogs are not allowed due to the birds, the location presents a rich variety of diversity in wetland habitats.
