When it comes to a unique city with lots for tourists and new residents to enjoy, you’ll struggle to find better than Oxford. Its world-famous university is instantly recognisable, but there’s lots more happening to get excited about. For anyone who’s looking for somewhere to live that balances vibrancy with culture and history, you’ll find it in good measure here.
As the first quarter of 2021 draws to a close, you might be thinking of how the rest of the year will pan out. It will be a gradual return to normality for many people, while others want to make some major changes. If you’re one of the latter – maybe you’re thinking of going in a different career direction? The question is – how does someone begin the process of starting a business in Oxford?
With the end date for lockdown restrictions fast approaching, many business owners are cautious about pinning their hopes on this happening. While it’s true that Covid-19 cases are falling, this pandemic has been an unpredictable journey. That’s why a certain level of scepticism is making businesses think twice about how they’re operating. Is it worth looking into a remote working set-up for your employees?
Even taking to account the drastically scaled-down affair that was Christmas 2020, most of us have ended up with too much stuff in our properties. Perhaps the rot had set in well before 25 December and you were already struggling with a lifetime’s worth of possessions and insufficient space to keep them. Or maybe you were just at the incipient stage of becoming a hoarder and Christmas pushed you over the edge. Short of constantly insuring that we throw away more than we take in, it’s almost impossible not to run out of space, and, of course, the problem occurs far faster if you’re in a flat in the city. The good news is that it’s not a difficult problem to rectify and the outset of the new year is one of the best times to make a start. There’s been enough upheaval and unwanted change in all our lives since March 2020; decluttering and putting things into storage is one of the best, most straightforward ways of restoring order to your world.
Christmas and the festive season won’t be the same this year, but we do not doubt that everyone in Oxford will be making the best of it. For those who want to see family, the news of extending bubbles to accommodate this was welcome news. However, you might need to do some last-minute organising to prepare for your guests.
The national lockdown will feel like Groundhog’s Day for many people in Oxford, with the previous one still causing issues. Lots of information feels open-ended, with questions surrounding the effectiveness and duration is on everyone’s mind. At Isis Removals, we receive a lot of inquiries concerning the lockdown. The one we’ve answered several times this week is – ‘will my relocation be cancelled now?’
With weekly changes to the pandemic response, it’s easy to feel a sense of confusion when trying to make plans for things like family get-togethers, amongst other things. The previous lockdown was challenging, which left many of us thinking about how we use our homes and whether a change is due.
One inexpensive way to make everything feel new is by decluttering and giving your house or flat a deep clean. As always, Isis Removals is on-hand to offer sound advice on how you can revamp your home to give it some TLC. Here are tips for decluttering and why it’s important to remove any germs to stay safe and promote a healthier household.
THE brand new, state of the art Tolworth depot for The Master Removers Group was all-singing, all-dancing recently when it was chosen by country-pop duo Ward Thomas as the backdrop to their latest music video.
The duo’s connections come via their father Anthony and his company of 40 years, Ward Thomas Removals – which was the founding brand of The Master Removers Group (MRG).
There’s been a massive shift in working culture happening, which was a result of the pandemic lockdown but is continuing to gain momentum. Many companies in Oxford were able to survive due to implementing remote working for their staff, even though it was thoughts of as a temporary measure. It was an essential tool to keep from going out of business and keep things running, even if it was just enough to cover expenses and wages.
At Isis Removals, we think this is something which will continue into the future as a new way of working. To that end, we can help you convert an existing room in your house to create a home office in Oxford with our range of services.
