How Much Are Removal Company Costs In Canterbury?
We found that the average cost of hiring a residential removal company in Canterbury is £1891, based on the average 3-bedroom house in the area. Keep in mind that this is an average and the cost of your home move will depend on a few factors.
Removal companies will base their costs on the size of your property, the number of belongings being moved and the distance between your new and old home. Costs will also depend on whether or not you use additional services, such as professional packing or storage options.
The day of the week you move can also influence the price of your home move. A less popular day, which in Canterbury is a Sunday, could be cheaper, with a more popular day such as a Friday potentially costing more.

What Is The Best Time of Year To Move in Canterbury?
We found that July was the most popular time to move among our Canterbury users, accounting for 13.51% of all moves throughout the year. The least popular time to move was during the winter, with less than 4% of moves taking place in December
For many people, December is a busy and expensive month, with a number of events, expenses and plans to consider. For this reason it is no surprise it is the least popular month to move. Furthermore the shorter, darker days and potential for poor weather make this time of year an inconvenient time to move.
July, however, not only provides better weather and more light for a house move, but it also falls during the school holidays, making it an ideal time to move for those working in education or families with children in school.
What Is The Best Day Of The Week To Move In Canterbury?
Our data found like much of the UK, Friday is the most popular day to move house in Canterbury. Over 28% of moves were arranged for the last day of the working week, compared with 8% of Canterbury users who arranged a move for a Sunday.
Moving on a Friday gives you the whole weekend to unpack - at a pace that suits you. It also allows time to explore your new neighbourhood and settle into your home.
With Sunday being at the end of the weekend, this could mean rushing to unpack before work -or school for the children - the following morning. Furthermore, many estate agents and solicitors may be closed on a Sunday meaning if there is an issue when you move into your new home, you will need to wait to contact someone.
That said, with Sunday being an unpopular day to move, it could mean a cheaper move if you are open to which day you move house. Very often more popular days such as Friday and Saturday are more expensive days to move house.
