Last year’s pandemic made it clear that workers could move anywhere. As the data shows, it appears that there is a large flow of people moving from the city to the rural areas. This is especially true for regions with high concentrations of offices and companies.
In general, compared to 2019 we see an increase in removals in the UK. Not only local moves, but people also moved internationally.
Moving requests skyrocketed during the pandemic first year. But not constantly: there was a spike following the first and second wave (March / September) while people were not relocating during the summer: the favourable weather and the better statistics were influencing in this case.
In big urban areas, such as London, the numbers are more than double compared to the rest of the country. English people moved from London leaving an apartment behind and favouring a bigger rural house.
