Few counties can rival Bedfordshire’s beauty, with most of the county being agricultural land.
The fourteenth most densely populated county in the UK, with as many as half the population living in either Luton or Bedford.
Bedfordshire is a great place to live and work. It is a relatively safe, green, and affluent area that attracts major investment.
It is home to Luton International Airport and Stansted Airport and is a comfortable commute into London from a large number of the county’s towns.
Understandably, many of those who have traditionally worked and lived in London are turning to Bedfordshire as an alternative place to buy a home.
Two main rail companies, East Coast Mainline, and Thameslink combine to provide residents with regular and speedy links into the Capital, negating the need to reside there.
Alternatively, motorway access is via the M1, A1, A5, and A6, also an efficient way to travel all over the region.
Being in an area of great beauty, when you have time to relax, there are several areas of outstanding beauty to explore, ideal for losing yourself in nature.
The Chiltern Hills and the Marston Vales are prime examples and make fantastic places to spend time.
Greensand Ridge Walk and Cycle Way are also popular attractions, whilst family places to visit include Whipsnade Zoo and Woburn Safari Park.
Although many choose to commute to London it is not the only provider of employment.
The county boasts some big corporate names. Autoglass, EasyJet, Monarch Airlines, Whitbread, and Jordans Cereals all have either their headquarters or large bases in Bedfordshire.
Another of Bedfordshire’s assets is its diversity.
Around 10.3% of people living in the area are from black or ethnic minority communities.

At Lund Conlon, we understand just how important it is to use only the best packing materials for your move.

Lund Conlon has as many years of experience in moving people to Europe and Internationally as it has within the UK.
The packing process is largely the same for moves further afield, however, extra padding and covering will be used to minimize movement during transport.
As the packing commences, the team will complete a comprehensive inventory of all your belongings as each box is filled or item wrapped.
Our experienced pre-move surveyor will provide you beforehand with the customs regulations pertaining to your destination country.
Depending on where in the world your consignment needs to go, your effects could travel by sea, air, or road.
International consignments are generally containerised, and sent by sea.
Journey times vary according to country, but, it can take several weeks for your consignment to arrive at its destination countries port of entry.
It is vital that everything is secure and well packed as these large vessels often encounter rough seas.
Long road journeys are also subject to a lot of vibration which can sometimes result in load shifting. Protecting and securing the load tightly is imperative.
Irrespective of how your goods are transported Lund Conlon’s first-class packers work hard to make sure that everything arrives in one piece.
At Lund Conlon we pride ourselves on delivering a first-class service.
However, no matter how meticulously our moves are carried out, there are risks involved which are outside our control. Transporting your consignment is a classic example.
Whilst we may have packed and loaded your effects with utmost care and attention, there is always a possibility, however slight, that an accident could occur whilst they are in transit.
This is why we offer our customers insurance cover.
If you provide us with an insurance declaration of the value of your goods, the amount of our liability to you in the event of loss or damage to those goods will be a maximum of £50,000.
We can accept insurance liability for a higher amount, in which case we may make an additional charge.
If you decide not to take out any insurance with us, you may find your own house insurance has some form of cover for goods in transit.
For anything we move for you which is not covered by either your own or our insurance, in the event of any loss or damages, caused by negligence or breach of contract on our part.
Our liability to you will be assessed as a sum equivalent to the cost of their repair or replacement, subject to a maximum liability of £40 per item.
Just speak to our helpful surveyor when he undertakes your house move survey and he can clarify the process for you.
