When is the best time to move?

Compare My Move UK conducted a survey which revealed the most preferred times for people to move. It is no surprise that moving in summer is more popular than winter.

Weekdays are often preferred, with Sunday being the least favourite day to move. However, if cost is an issue, some moving companies may offer lower quotes for a Sunday move. It is difficult to complete house sales on Sundays, since conveyancing solicitors and estate agents rarely work on this day.

The ideal time to complete a house sale is during Friday mornings, so that moving can be done in the afternoon. This leaves ample time over the weekend for unpacking and organising things at your new home.

August is considered the most favourable month for moves. However, regional preferences also exist, with spring being more popular in both the West Midlands and Northeast regions of the UK. Winter moving is less popular due to its bleak weather conditions and dark early nights. Furthermore, moving during the Christmas season is uncommon.

When buying a home, it takes between three to six months from making a successful offer to moving in. This means that if you want to move in the Summer, you should have an offer accepted for the house in the late Winter or early Spring.

Once you have finalised your moving date, contact a reliable Liverpool removal company, such as Merseyside Movers & Storers, that will efficiently manage all aspects of transporting your belongings, no matter what day of the week or time of year it is.
