Top 10 Reasons To Move To the USA

If you’re thinking of moving abroad and are tempted by the United States but you aren’t sure about

the lack of free health care or the limited annual holiday, then think again, here are our top 10 reasons to move to the USA:


1. Space

Given that the USA is much bigger than Britain – the whole of England could roughly fit into

New York State alone, there is generally more space and therefore less traffic congestion,

depending on the city of course.


2. Affordable Housing

With all that space it means that housing in the USA is that much more affordable, especially

as the pound is strong against the dollar at the moment.


3. Nature

From the desert in California to the swamps of the Deep South and the depths of the Grand

Canyon – America has such a vast array of terrain, it makes Britain look rather bland. That’s

before we even get onto the hundreds of different plants and animals native to America – if

it’s nature you’re after, you will find plenty beautiful scenery in the USA.


4. Fuel

Here in the UK we pay some of the highest prices in the world for petrol and diesel, head to

the USA however and it’s a whole other story. Take the East Coast of America for example,

where the cost of petrol is around £0.38 per litre.


5. Education

Take a look at the QS rankings of top universities in the world and you’ll find that six of them

are American with the top position going to Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the

only downside is the cost as the fees can be quite expensive.


6. Weather

Yes America does have much more extreme weather than England and not always the sort

you want, but you’re also much more like to experience proper seasons. Take New York for

example where you can experience cold winters, hot summers, golden autumns and fresh springs.


7. Food

If there is one thing that America knows how to do then it is food. From the health conscious

raw and pressed brigade in LA and the the slow and low BBQ to the chicken and waffles of

Brooklyn and the gumbo of the Deep South, America definitely knows how to put on a feast.


8. English Speaking

You won’t need to worry about language barriers if you are a British expat moving to the US.


9. Shopping

The US is full of shopping malls and don’t forget the outlet villages where you can get some

great bargains.


10. Activities

There are so many varied activities to take part in across the country – from white water

rafting and surfing to skiing and riding across the Great Plains. If you are looking for

entertainment, head to Vegas, Reno or Disneyland.

Hertfordshire, UK to Virginia, USA - March 2023

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.
