 UK Ex-Pats Make Case For Move Stateside Despite Trump Election

Distressed Americans looking to flee Donald Trump’s Presidency swamped Google as they searched for the nearest exit to Canada – but a steady stream of UK nationals are just as eager to move over the Pond and make up the numbers.

That’s according to the latest research from UK-based international removals specialists 1st Move International, which shows emigration to the States is up around 20 per cent on last year – notwithstanding last year’s election.

Managing Director Jim Limerick said: “More people googled ‘move to Canada’ following Donald Trump’s victory than ever before. But it’s not - and never has been - one way traffic.

“We haven’t seen any equivalent drop off in people looking to move there – in fact numbers are growing.”

Based in Avonmouth near Bristol, 1st Move International employs 30 people packing personal effects and household goods for people moving abroad with American-bound clients making up a hefty 40 per cent of the firm’s business.

Jim added: “There are still compelling reasons why people will continue moving to the United States no matter who has moved in to the White House.

“It’s Gross Domestic Product per capita is third highest in the world behind Norway and Ireland but most of our clients are looking for the simple things - better weather, a better job and a fresh start.

“The USA has the lowest property price to income ratio, making US real estate much more affordable than that of the UK, which has one the highest ratios.”

1st Move International’s figures were based on 11 separate sets of data including GDP per capita, income tax levels, average net incomes, real wages, education ranking, property price to income ratio, crime and unemployment levels, healthcare efficiency, food costs and familiarity with English. 

Jim concluded: “While most Americans ended up staying put despite their reservations over Donald Trump’s approach, UK families don’t seem to have changed their minds about heading West.”

1st Move International is fully registered members of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) and the British Association of Removers (BAR).
