London is an enticing location, and many people worldwide would love to get a chance to move here. There is no doubt that London is a fast-moving city that waits for no one, making it even more interesting to call home. 

London is also home to just over nine million people. It's even the biggest city, at least in Europe. So, if you're ready to move from Abu Dhabi to London, keep reading.

Well, moving your entire home internationally is a task that is challenging but not impossible. However, one may argue that DIY-ing an international move is quite impossible. But lucky for you, some movers can help you move out from anywhere, anytime.  

One thing to remember is that only some moving companies will charge the same. This is because of different services, techniques, and value differences. 

Only some moving companies charge the same way. Some don't charge for packing, while others do. Many don't include insurance in the quote they give you, while others do. Some charge by the hour, and others have fixed rates. Some movers will charge by the hour, while others may only offer a fixed project rate. 

But, to give you a rough estimate as to what costs you can expect when moving to London: 

If you are moving to a one-bedroom flat, costs can range from £2000 - £3000

If you are moving to a three-bedroom flat, costs can range from £3000 - £4900 

As the workload goes up, so does the price. So, the labour, moving appliances, and travel costs will also influence your final cost for moving. The more services you will need, i.e. longer transport, more moving materials, and people to assist you, the more costs will increase. 

Of course, most movers have created or will tailor a custom package for your moving needs to help keep things slightly economical. But, an international relocation can cost more than a local move. 

Living in London

Much like living in any part of the world, your environment changes when you move to London, especially if you're coming from Abu Dhabi, which is in the gulf, and moving to London, which is in Europe. A huge culture, history, and environmental change are to be expected. 

London is a fast-moving city with so many independent, young individuals hustling to make a good life. The atmosphere is inspiring, unique, and exciting. The locals in London indeed have a different life than the rest of the world. While in Abu Dhabi, most people drive their own cars to get where they need to be; London is home to iconic buses, tubes, and black taxis.
