Johnsons Removals - Moving Dorset Since 1855

Every year, tens of thousands of people move out of major cities like London for a quieter pace of life, cleaner air and more days of sunshine. That’s why Dorset is becoming one of the most sought-after locations for city escapees to pack up and head to. And even though the assumption is that people typically head for the coastal hotspots in Dorset, the northern part of the county is attracting a record number of new residents.

Johnson’s of Shaftesbury moves thousands of people into Dorset every year and the influx of people relocating here from busier cities increases annually. House prices in North Dorset are slightly more favourable than on the southern coast, especially the tourist areas like Bournemouth. By choosing North Dorset, you can get the best of rural or village life as well as being a short drive away from all the sunshine and seaside coastal towns.
