"I went for a cheaper quote with ANY VAN which I would not recommend to any one. Mackenzie's came to next day and took the drama out of the whole thing. Nothing was a problem to Mackenzie, they cleared the house completely and the guys told not to panic as they would take everything and it would be well packed too. Plus they delivered when they quoted too, so no drama with Mackenzie"

According to our removal data, the average cost of moving house in Belfast is £937. This is the average cost for a Friday move in the UK, which is the most popular day for users in the city. Despite its popularity, this isn’t the most expensive day you can choose.
Tuesday is actually the most expensive day of the week, increasing the average cost up to £1,110. The cheapest day for movers is Sunday, with an average cost of just £717.
There are several factors that could affect your moving costs, not just the day of the week. The distance you need to travel, the volume of items being moved and whether you require additional services will also add to the overall cost. This is why it’s advised you compare removal quotes, to ensure you’re getting the best deals available.
After analysing our data, our team found that October is the most popular month to move house in Belfast, seeing 19.42% of users. A further 15.53% opted for a November house move instead, making the end of the year the most popular time for our Belfast users.
As many people will look to move house before the Christmas holidays, it’s not surprising to see the months before December achieve such high numbers. Christmas can be a stressful and expensive time without the added pressure of moving house, so it’s understandable that so many people across the area would prefer to avoid this option. By moving in October and November, you also get the benefit of avoiding the hazardous winter weather, again improving your moving experience at this time.
April proved to be the least popular month in Belfast, seeing only 1.94% of users opting for this time of the year to book a removal. With exam season starting, many families and students will avoid disrupting term time with the moving process. Revising can be a very stressful event, meaning the added chaos that comes with moving house can often be too much.
We also discovered that Friday is the most popular day of the week to move in Belfast, with 24.27% of users opting for this specific day. The weekend is often a busy time for the removals industry, as the additional time off work allows people to gradually unpack and move house without any added pressure or additional annual leave. Thursday was also popular, seeing 14.56%. Again, this shows that many local movers prefer to book a removal at the end of the week, allowing them to take full advantage of the following weekend.
The least popular day was Sunday, with just 2.91% of our Belfast users choosing this specific day of the week. This isn’t surprising as many estate agents and conveyancing offices will be closed on Sundays, disrupting the communication throughout the property chain. This means that if any issues arise, you may have to wait until the following Monday to complete the process and move in.
