The grass is always greener on the other side. It’s an old phrase that encourages people to know that there are better options available and that things can improve. When it comes to moving home it is a good adage and can be even taken literally. Sometimes however, we aren’t willing to take that step towards something better. We are held back by worry and doubt that it might not work out or that it will be too much work. This is a shame because moving to a new home or office should be an exciting occasion that can bring new and positive opportunities and change your life. If you want to move into a new area, find a bigger building and just improve your home or office, then a move is for you. You may think it’s hard work but if you recruit Man and Van then we can make it easy.
