For many of us, our home move is dictated by the time it takes to sell our property, find a new home, agree on a price, exchange contracts and the chain remaining in place to allow you to complete.
For those lucky enough to be in control of your move date, the best times of year to move are generally early in the year, and just after the summer holidays. Demand for removals services peaks in the summer and slows at the end of the season, so the costs of moving home is likely to be lower. Most people want to move on a Friday, so it is more cost effective to move mid-week.
If you have children in school, it’s best to schedule your move around the school calendar. Summer is ideal, as it won’t disrupt the school year and gives the children plenty of time to adjust to the idea of moving, say goodbye to friends and adapt to their new surroundings before school starts again.
Whenever you decide the move home, hiring a professional removal company will help take the strain and ensure your move goes without a hitch. Pickfords, the UK’s largest removals and storage company, move tens of thousands of people every year, all year round, so you can rest assured you’ll receive a highly professional service, whenever you decide to move.
