    What is The Best Time of Year To Move in Cardiff?

    August is a popular time to move house in Cardiff, with 11.4% of moves taking place then. June and July are the next favourites for Cardiff movers, with 10.5% of house removals happening in the Summer months. It's clear why most people prefer to move house in the Summer with the warm weather and light nights making for the perfect moving conditions.

    Cardiff's least favourite time of year to move house is April, with a mere 5% of moves going ahead. This is likely due to the pressure of upcoming exams with parents not wanting to add to the stress their children are already feeling at this time. The second least popular month is January, with just 6.1% of people choosing to move during this Winter month.

    Winter is often the least popular time for movers as the cold weather and the chaos of holidays like Christmas and New Year means a sudden increase in traffic and less natural light to ensure a safe move. Summer seems to be the optimal time of year to move house as the warmer weather creates a more inviting journey and an increase in excitement.

    What is The Best Day Of The Week To Move In Cardiff?

    The most popular day to move house in Cardiff is a Friday, with 29.2% of moves taking place on this day. Following closely are Saturday and Thursday with 17% and 13.8% of house removals happening on these days. It doesn't come as a surprise that many people prefer to move house on the latter half of the week, meaning they get a few days to settle in and unpack over the weekend.

    Cardiff's least preferred day to move house is a Sunday, with just 5.85% of moves taking place then. Many UK movers favour a Sunday move the least due to closures of estate agents and conveyancer's offices. This means less communication throughout the property chain and an increased chance of delay. 

    However, our data shows that Sunday is actually the cheapest day to move house and so it could be worth considering this as your moving day if the looming working week doesn't affect the stress of your move. Compare My Move will connect you with verified and professional removal companies to help ensure a smooth and organised removal no matter what the moving day date.
