4 Longcliffe Path, Watford, WD19 7PH
A family-owned business with years of experience in the industry, Cornerstone Removals are a professional, passionate removals company based in Watford.
"I like that Cornerstone is quick in sending me a detailed quotation and the account manager was in constant communication over the phone to verify details and update me on the available dates (I only gave a tentative date and was shopping around). However, I was a bit irritated that I went through 4 AMs and had to recap my conversation with the last and repeat my move details over and over again. 1 day before my move, the AM told me that an extra cost was missing from the quote and she would get back to me but never did... On the moving day, the crew came on time and the 3 guys were friendly and efficient but there wasn't enough space in the vans for everything and partial packing couldn't be done... and the AM knew about it. When we arrived at the destination, the AM called to demand the remaining balance from the original quote without deducting the packing cost. At that point, I lost my temper but still paid the requested amount, or else the movers won't start working. Moving is a stressful process and I wished the AM could have been more sympathetic. The difference was refunded to me in 3 days. I would say my experience started good but ended on a sour note."

After analysing over 2,900 removal quotes, we’ve discovered that the most popular time of year to move was August. Over 10% of our house removals occurred during this month in Birmingham, which is unsurprising due to the warmer weather and longer days making the process a lot smoother. Summer often brings the ideal moving conditions, which is why many users are eager to book early.
The rest of the UK seems to also agree as August was again the favoured month to move. If you’re thinking about joining the masses and moving during the warmer months, then why not use Compare My Move to beat the competition and save up to 70% on the cost of your removal. We only work with verified home movers, ensuring that your experience is as efficient as possible.
The colder months appear to be the least popular times to move in Birmingham, as only 6.7% of removals occurred during November 2020 and only 6.8% in February 2020. Nobody wants to move house in the rain or snow and so it’s obvious why these are often the least favoured. However, April was also low on our list, perhaps due to the start of exam season. It's often perceived that parents can lower the amount of disruption for their children by moving during the school holidays - our data seems to co-operate with this theory.
With a majority of 30.3% of removals occurring on this day, Friday was the most popular day to move house in Birmingham. Not only is traffic usually a lot calmer, but with both Saturday and Sunday allowing you to settle into your new home and unpack, it’s easy to see why this day is favoured above the rest.
Sunday was the least popular day to move house in this area, with only 6% of movers choosing this day for their moving date. Many offices will be closed on Sundays which reduces the line of communication during a house move, potentially extending the deadline the buyer can retrieve the keys.
However, if you’re looking to move on a budget and don’t mind unpacking throughout the week, then you may want to consider moving on this day as it also happens to be the cheapest. If your personal schedule allows it, you may not want to dismiss a Sunday move so soon.
Despite the benefits of living in Birmingham, many people will still want to move out of the city, leaving the hectic lifestyle and traffic jams behind. Compare My Move’s removal partners have helped hundreds of movers leave the city, helping them settle into their new homes as swiftly as possible. The most popular location outside of Birmingham was Solihull, with 4.2% of removals having been booked here. Sutton Coldfield, London, Walsall and Tamworth were also popular choices.
With an average property price of £188,248, it’s easy to see why the city is such a popular choice. However, whether it’s for job opportunities, education or simply a fresh start, many home movers still choose to look elsewhere despite the lower house prices. As of April 2021, Solihull has an average of £293,229. Whilst this is higher than Birmingham's average, the area offers more green spaces and larger homes for growing families. No matter what you're reasoning, our dedicated team can get you packed up and moving in no time.
Our expert team wanted to help with your research to ensure a more efficient process. That is why we've listed the top 4 most popular locations for our Birmingham users, including the average house price in each area. You can then use this information to budget accordingly.compare now
Just over 7 miles from Birmingham, Solihull is a great commuter town and the most popular destination for those wishing to live outside of the city. The average property price is currently £293,229 making it more expensive than Birmingham. However, this is due to the location being one of the most affluent areas of the UK. In 2013, the uSwitch Quality of Life Index crowned it “the best place to live” in the UK, so it’s definitely worth the price.
Again, just over 7 miles from the city centre, Sutton Coldfield is another popular location with an average property price of £380,593 - this is a 17% increase compared to 2019 showing prices are steadily increasing. With a range of respectable schools, it’s the perfect area for growing families as well as being a great area for those looking to commute.
London is often a popular area for home movers with endless job opportunities, higher salaries and a diverse lifestyle. However, the main drawback is that it’s also one of the most expensive choices with an average property price of £496,269. But the benefits seem to outweigh this, as many still make the move to call England’s capital home.
A beautiful, British market town outside of Birmingham, Walsall is next with an average property price of £176,956. This price is highly appealing for those wishing to leave the expensive city lifestyle, whilst the excellent transport links ensure that it’s even more attractive for those hoping to commute.
Birmingham property prices constantly changed throughout 2020, increasing by 1.9% in July and then decreasing again by 0.2% in August. They dipped significantly between January and February of 2021 but have since increased and are back on track with an average property of £188,248. This uncertainty was likely due to the effect of the national COVID lockdowns, but the area has started to see a strong recovery.
Since February 2021, property prices have seen a yearly increase of 5.5%. Both new-build homes and existing properties are beginning to rise, with new-builds averaging at £247,935. This will be encouraging for those looking to sell within the area but may mean further budgeting for those looking to buy. Don’t forget to use Compare My Move to save up to 70% on your removal cost, saving you money when you need it most.
To help you with your house hunting, we’ve discovered some of the cheapest areas to live in Birmingham, including their average property price for comparison taken from the property website, rightmove. Here are the top 4 areas that offer affordable housing, including Nechells and Castle Vale.
Nechells tops the list with a very inexpensive and attractive average property price of £126,452. From cute maisonettes to vintage terraced houses, there’s a variety of properties for sale, all of which are almost certain to be within your budget.
With an average property price of £148,126, Castle Vale is another fairly cheap area to add to your list. Even with the 12% increase on the 2019 average, Castle Vale still has an attractive price list for many movers. From Victorian terraced houses to more family-friendly detached homes, there’s a range of property types to choose from, catering to all tastes and families.
Most notable for Aston Villa Football Club, Aston is another area to add to your house-hunting list, with an average property price of £171,692. If you’re willing to spend a little more, there are a number of refurbished terraced houses to choose from, otherwise, there are plenty of original terraced houses and semi-detached homes to fit your budget.
Only 2 miles from the city centre, Bordesley Green currently has an average property price of £134,719 - many buyers will be happy to learn that this is a decrease of £23,787 compared to the previous year. Not only is it a perfect area for commuters, but there are also a range of large terraced houses for sale as well as spacious, semi-detached properties if you’re looking for something slightly bigger.
Whether you're a young professional starting out, a growing family or a potential retiree, Birmingham has something for everyone. If you're not ready to commit to the area, there are also a number of rental properties to choose from.
If you're looking to rent in the bustling city of Birmingham, we've researched some of the best and most reasonably priced areas to help you plan your budget. For comparison, the average asking rent in Birmingham is £933 pcm as of April 2021. If you're looking for a cosy 1-bedroom flat, the average decreases to £657 pcm whilst 2-bedroom houses average at £748 pcm. These prices will, of course, vary depending on where specifically the property is located.
To further aid you in your house-hunting research, we've taken reliable data from the property website, Zoopla, to list some of the more reasonably priced locations to rent within Birmingham postcodes. We've looked at areas including Willenhall, Aston, Handsworth and Bordesley Green, including their average rent for comparison.
Not only is Willenhall a great area for property prices, but it’s also the cheapest area for those looking to rent.

When starting your property hunt, don’t forget to add Handsworth onto your list as the current average asking rent is a fairly affordable £568 pcm. 1-bedroom flats are seemingly inexpensive with an average asking rent of £362 pcm, whilst 2-bedroom houses aren’t much more at £693 pcm.
Don’t forget to set a budget before your search. If you then don’t mind paying a little more than the other areas on the list, Bordesley Green is a great place to consider. The current average asking rent is £728 pcm, with 1-bedroom flats priced at £490 pcm and 2-bedroom houses at £650 pcm.
