The only downside of this being that the 'cramming' meant that several pieces of our furniture got marked or scratched. Having said that, the team were upbeat and positive throughout the move and I would still recommend them. Chris was excellent at arranging the long-distance move and was easy to contact even out of hours. Thank you Intact Move!"

The majority of moves in Bournemouth occurred on Fridays, meaning the average cost of moving house was £937. Whatever day you choose, try to avoid a Tuesday when booking your moving date as it was the most expensive day to move house, increasing the overall price to £1,110.
According to our unique data, only 6% of moves occurred on a Sunday, which is very surprising as it’s also the cheapest day to book a removal. If your moving date falls on a Sunday, you could be looking at a saving of 21% with the average cost is reducing to £717. However, if Sunday doesn't work for you, you can still save money when you compare removal quotes with Compare My Move.
Despite the low costs, Sunday may be an unpopular date due to the lack of communication in the property chain. Many estate agents and conveyancing offices will be closed on Sundays, reducing the number of professionals on hand should any issues arise. This is an important factor to consider before booking.
For those wondering when the best time of year to move in Bournemouth is, we’ve got you covered - with 10.74% of removals occurring during this month, July was the favoured month to move house. The summer months are often popular with our users as the warmer weather and brighter days often make for a smoother and more successful removal plan.
August was also the most popular month to move throughout the rest of the UK, supporting the idea that summer is the superior time of year for residential moves. Make sure you get the perfect time slot by comparing removal quotes early to help limit the amount of competition.
Bournemouth movers seem to agree with the majority of the UK that the winter months are the worst time of year to move house. With the colder days and treacherous weather limiting workload, December, January and February are often quiet. However, with only 5.82% of removals booked then, the least popular month in this area was actually November. This is understandable as it’s the gateway into the festive holidays, with movers wanting to avoid the hectic run-up to Christmas and the start of the cold winter weather. If you're looking for less competition, however, then these may be the perfect dates for you.
Friday was the most popular day to move house in Bournemouth, with 27% of removals occurring on that day in 2020. Saturday followed close behind with over 17% of removals having been booked then.
The weekend is an ideal time to move house as it provides many users with a lot of free time to pack, load and eventually unpack without disrupting their working schedule. The less disruptive the move, the easier it will be to complete and the quicker you can get comfortable in your new home.
With only 6% of removals occurring on this day, Sunday was the least popular day to move house in Bournemouth. However, if you’d like to stretch your budget further by saving money, Sunday is actually the cheapest day to move, helping you save up to 21% compared to a Friday moving date. If it doesn't clash with your personal schedule, you may want to consider a Sunday move should your budget be lower.
