Removals To Philadelphia

Philadelphia is located in the state of Pennsylvania. With Washington DC and New York only a couple of hours away, it is a busy vibrant city with lots to offer. Famous for the Liberty Hall where the declaration of independence was signed, its name means the city of brotherly love.

The weather is generally warmer than Ireland, with summer days averaging around 26°C and winters rarely dropping below 2°C.


Relocating to a new city is always a big step, but moving to a new continent will require a much higher level of planning. To keep things as easy as possible and avoid stress choose a reputable professional  International Moving company with plenty of experience in international removals. At Get Cracking we can provide all the help you need.


Before you decide to move, here are some of the things you might want to think about.



Housing costs depend on which part of the city you decide to live in. Renting out of the city center is cheaper and there are many lovely suburbs to choose from. Flats start around €1000 for one bedroom in the city center. But the same type of property out side the city centre starts at € 650.



You may well be moving to take up a new job, but if not, employment prospects are good – assuming you have the necessary paperwork. The top industries are construction and manufacturing. Local government is a major employer and new companies are increasingly expanding into the city.


Family life

Philadelphia is a great city for families. You will enjoy outings to museums and the zoo and a  rich cultural life thanks to the city’s excellent theatres and concert halls. One of the most popular places for families to live is Chestnut Hill which has excellent schools and parks.


Eating and drinking

You will find first class bars and restaurants throughout the city offering a range of different cuisines. And if you feel homesick you can always drop into one of the city’s many Irish pubs

Expect to pay €10 – €18 for a meal in one of the cheaper restaurant: €2.50 – €4.00 for a pint of local beer.



The city’s transport includes trains and buses as well as trolley buses which are like trams which do not run on rails. You can save money by buying all day and season tickets and family passes. It is the perfect  city for cyclists, with 435 miles of cycle lanes.


You can drive with your European driving license initially but will need to get an American one within 12 months or 30 days if you are a student.

Removals From Dublin To Edinburgh Scotland

Why move to Edinburgh?

Edinburgh is located on the east coast of Scotland. It is the country’s capital and home to the Scottish Parliament. It is steeped in history and famous for its castle which attracts thousands of visitors every year. There is also the International Edinburgh Festival and its iconic Fringe Festival which take place during August. With excellent transport links to Edinburgh International Airport and other major cities it is a great place to live and work. Of course relocating to a new city is a big step so make sure that your move is as simple and stress-free as by choosing a reputable professional company. At Get Cracking we can provide a professional service to ensure everything goes smoothly.


Making the move


There are few a few things you might want to think about before moving to Edinburgh.



Average house prices in central Edinburgh are higher than other parts of Scotland although lower than many other parts of the UK. Fortunately there are plenty of lovely areas just outside the city where house prices are considerably lower. Many people who work in Edinburgh live in one of these smaller towns and villages which are within easy commuting distance of the capital. As well as being cheaper, they offer a pleasant alternative to the bustle of the city.



Public transport in Edinburgh is excellent. Buses are a quick and easy way to get around the city. And Edinburgh even has its own trams for faster travel on certain routes including to Edinburgh International Airport. The airport also offers regular cheap flights to Dublin, with journey times averaging about 1 hour.


Glasgow, Scotland’s other major city is only 47 miles away. There are regular trains to Glasgow which will get you into the city centre in less than an hour.



Edinburgh offers excellent choices for education from preschool to university. Most children attend the state schools but there are also a number of well-established private schools to choose from. The Scottish exam system differs from the rest of the UK but the qualifications are recognised internationally so will not limit your child’s choice of university or college.



Employment prospects are good. There are many jobs in both the public and private sector and the service industry is booming. Tourism is one of the key industries and offers both long term and short term opportunities, especially during the busy summer period.


Plenty to do

As well as the Edinburgh Festival there are plenty of museums, galleries, cinemas and theatres to keep you entertained. There is also Edinburgh Zoo, with its famous pandas which makes a great day out for all the family.


For foodies, you will find award winning restaurants serving many different types of cuisines. As well as sophisticated bars there are plenty of old fashioned pubs. Many of these host live traditional music sessions.

With so many exciting things ahead you don’t want the lead up to your move to be spoiled by unnecessary stress and worry. At Get Cracking we offer a friendly and professional removals service to Scotland and many other international removals services. Our services include:

  • part load and full load

If you’re thinking of relocating to Toulouse you are in for a treat – it’s an impressive place. Amble along the 17th century canal or along the banks of the Garonne River, visit one of the many colourful markets (and sample the appetising fare on offer), or enjoy listening to jazz in one of the numerous bars.


Relocating can be an amazing experience, the chance to live in a new city and meet interesting people – but it can also be very stressful.

5 Things You Might Want to Know About the Pink City

  1. There are local buses and a metro run by a company called Tisséo and you can pay for a single journey, buy a book of tickets in advance or invest in a pass which will allow you unlimited journeys.
