London is an exciting city for students: it offers entertainment, a thriving cultural life, and many of the world’s leading educational institutions are based here.

But at the same time, finding quality accommodation on a student-friendly budget can be tough. If you’re a student and will be moving to London soon, you’ll want to read about the best places to live in North London for students.

North London

Camden:

This area is an icon of British culture and a thriving hub for artists and creative people. Renting in Camden Town may be out of reach for students, but other parts of the borough offer useful transportation links, plenty of amenities, and cheaper rents. If this is what you’re after, you may want to have a look at renting in the streets near Cricklewood Station.

Southgate:

Located between Enfield and Barnet, Southgate may be just right for you if you’re a student at Barnet & Southgate College or Middlesex University. There are plenty of flatshares and student homes in the market at prices well below the London average.

Wood Green:

Connected to central London by tube (Piccadilly Line), Wood Green is known for its cheap eats affordable student accommodation. This area has a bustling high street with discount stores, supermarkets, and cinemas. In short, Wood Green has everything you’ll find in more centrally located parts of the city, and is cheaper!

Storage Solutions During Post-Lockdown

Storage In London – The Best Solution During Post-Lockdown

Storage In London – The Best Solution During Post-Lockdown 2250 1500 G W Twilley & Son Removals

After weeks of lockdown, the London property market is starting to reopen. Although things are not back to normal yet, this is definitely good news for everyone who was planning to sell or buy property, or to move homes before the pandemic hit.

Store now, move later

Due to stay-at-home measures, many Londoners saw their plans to move disrupted. Now that non-essential home moves are allowed again, there is a surge in demand for removals services across London. This means that you may not be able to move on your chosen date, as movers may already be booked.

If you find yourself having to wait or delay your moving date, you may be wondering what to do with your belongings.

In fact, official government guidelines suggest that you pack your belongings yourself to minimise the risk of contagion. Of course, having moving boxes stacked at home while you wait for moving day is not convenient, especially in cities like London where living space is tight. This is why you may want to think about putting your packed belongings into storage.

Storage in London vs self-storage

Storage is a practical short-term solution that comes in handy during this post-lockdown stage. When thinking about storage, some people automatically think of self-storage. But if you are after hassle-free storage space, there is another option that will suit you best.

Our storage service offers many advantages over self-storage. One of them is that it is virtually a contactless procedure, which is important during post-lockdown.

With our storage in London service, your packed goods are placed in a container, sealed, and then loaded into a removals vehicle using a forklift. The unloading procedure is also done via forklift. This way, manual handling is kept to a minimum – and so is the risk of contagion.

If you’d like to know more about storage in London, give us a call on 020 8888 5156 for further advice or request a video survey and we’ll be happy to explain how it can benefit you in detail.

North London in Autumn

Get Your House Decluttered This Autumn

Get Your House Decluttered This Autumn 1600 1066 G W Twilley & Son Removals

Have you ever found yourself thinking it’s time to declutter your home, and then postponing it? We’ve all been there.

Sometimes, it’s almost impossible to make time for a decluttering session, but here’s a secret: October is one of the best months to get your house organised.

What is happening in Autumn?

After the back-to-school rush, many parents take this season as a time to clean up and organise the family home. Summer toys and summer clothes can be now put away, and it’s time to switch our wardrobes around and get out autumn and winter clothing out.

During Autumn, many of us will be busy anticipating the Black Friday shopping extravaganza. This big sale event is usually held in November, so this is the time to start making a list of everything you need to buy.

Speaking of shopping, many of us are doing our Christmas shopping in October. The majority of retailers already have their Christmas gift deals and ideas out, and it’s a good idea to start crossing gifts off your list as soon as possible.

Here are some suggestions on what to buy:

  • Home appliances, as this is the time when previous year’s models get discounted.
  • You can find great bargains on cookware during October.
  • Toys and games (great Christmas gifts).

Also during this month, our calendars are marked with a few Halloween parties. You probably know how much room some costumes can take! You’ll need to make room for all those purchases and Halloween outfits. Usually that means putting your summer gear away, and here are some useful tips on storing it:

  • Sort clothes by category (tops, dresses, trousers, etc.).
  • Don’t store what you haven’t worn this season. Donate it or discard it.
  • Avoid wrapping or storing clothes in plastic bags, as this can encourage mould growth.
  • Line the bottom of storage boxes with acid-free paper or cotton sheets. Your clothes will last longer!
  • Clean all toys and summer sports gear before putting them away.
  • Store summer gear by activity(e.g. beach toys, sports gear, garden furniture, etc.).
  • Save space by hanging bags of summer toys from wall hooks.

What about those who are moving homes?

Apart from back to school, shopping season and being the best time to organise your home, Autumn is a great time of the year to move homes.

We all know that summer is prime moving season, so once the busy period is over you’ll have more chances of booking your home removals around your preferred dates.

Whether you’re moving homes this autumn, or have decided to finally declutter your home, you may need seasonal storage.
