At Via Removals and Storage, we have the expertise to ensure your house or office move is completed safely, smoothly and efficiently.
"Via did a fantastic job for me. I can't recommend them highly enough. Legal difficulties meant that I couldn't book a mover until the day before and it was not only a regularly full four-bedroom house, but also a garage and loft conversion containing 1000s of heavy old 78rpm records (140 boxes), which we didn't know till late in the day that the team would also have to move those after being let down by the friend who was going to help with this more special job. They were absolutely fantastic, and, as if these circumstances weren't bad enough, they also had to deal with the new owners being completely unreasonable and vile to them and even throwing them out of the house at one point, but they were totally professional down to the last man. I can't thank them enough. I'm sorry its taken a month for me to be able to get this review written, but I couldn't do it from my phone for some reason and I've only just got the laptop set-up with the internet in the new house. I wish Via all the very best for business in the future and I similarly wish all the very best to each and every one of those wonderful lads who were fabulous under those awful circumstances. HEROES !!"

After analysing our unique removals data, we discovered that the most popular month to move house in Bradford was April, with 14.95% of removals booked during this month. Spring is often seen as a good time of the year to relocate as the better lighting, mild temperatures and somewhat predictable weather create great moving conditions. Spring is also often associated with the idea of ‘spring cleaning’ where many homeowners will already be decluttering and cleaning their homes, making it the perfect opportunity to pack up and move out. There is also the added bonus of being able to take advantage of the long weekends brought on by the bank holidays.
Our data also revealed that the least popular month to move in Bradford was January, with an astonishing 0% of removal quotes being arranged for that date. Winter is never usually seen as a popular time to move house due to the darker days, colder weather and threat of snow. Winter moves can often create dangerous travelling conditions, making the moving process feel a lot more stressful. There is also the problem of having to move around the Christmas holidays which is already a very chaotic and expensive time of the year.
January, in particular, may have seen such low numbers as many families will be using this month to recover from the holidays and relax before going back to work. Moving house can be incredibly time-consuming and stressful and so it’s no surprise that many of our Bradford movers didn’t want to book a removal quote during the time they’d be gearing up to return to work - or school if you’re moving with children.
During our research, we discovered that many of our Bradford users prefer a Friday as their moving date with 29.25% of removals being booked on this day. This isn’t too surprising as the weekend is often a popular time to organise a house move. Fridays provide ample time to unpack and settle in, all without needing to book much if any, time off work. A Friday move also typically means the children will be at school and so, they will miss the hectic process of the physical move but have plenty of time the following 2 days to help unpack and enjoy their new home.
Our data also found that only 5.78% of Bradford movers required a Tuesday house move, making it the least popular day of the week to relocate in this area. Again, this isn’t surprising as a weekday move can often be too disruptive for the family, especially if you can’t take the time off work. With less time to plan and physically move, it can often create a rather chaotic and stressful process.
Another factor to consider when looking at the results of our data is that Tuesday is actually the most expensive day of the week to move house in the UK, which could affect the number of removal quotes requested. Our team calculated that the average cost for a Tuesday move is £1,110.36 - this is actually 44% more expensive than a Saturday move (£774.47) and 55% more than a Sunday move (£717.13). If you’re looking to stretch your budget further, you may want to consider a weekend move should your personal schedule allow for it.
