The good thing about having our headquarters (and storage facility) in Bridport is that we are close to the border of several counties – which means that we find ourselves doing a lot of removals in Somerset, Devon and Dorset – as well as further afield. People who are thinking of relocating often ask us what it’s like to live in a particular place and this week we are focusing on removals in Yeovil. For anyone thinking of moving to Yeovil we have some useful information on what it is like to live in Yeovil along with recent average house prices in the area for buyers and renters.
