According to our research, the most popular time to move house in Chester was summer, with July specifically being the most popular month. Over 13% of our movers booked this month as their moving date, with August coming in as a close second. The brighter days and warmer weather often make summer the best time of year to move. The improving weather creates the perfect conditions for a successful removal for many across the UK.
The least popular time to move house, however, was winter with January showing the lowest percentage. This is unsurprising as the colder, darker days often put people off. The increase in traffic and potential for snow isn't ideal when it comes to moving homes as it can sometimes feel like a difficult journey, adding to the stress.
With the recovery of Christmas also still fairly fresh and the introduction of a new year, January is not often an ideal time to uproot and move your entire home. Only 4.5% of our users chose this month, not wanting to add to the chaos of going back to work after the holidays.
Our data shows that many movers in Chester prefered a Friday as their moving day, with 27% booking their removals on this day. Unpacking and settling in can add to the stress of the working week and so having the weekend follow your move can be very beneficial. You’ll have much more free time and your new neighbours or family members may also be around to help.
Despite it being the cheapest day to move house, only 6% of movers chose Sunday as their moving day. This isn’t surprising as the working week can become chaotic if you have to also unpack in-between. Most banks and conveyancer offices are closed during this day too, meaning there can be little to no communication if something should go wrong. This could result in a delay in the transaction, halting the process for others within the chain.
However, if it suits your personal schedule, there could be a few advantages for a Sunday move. Not only did we calculate it to be the cheapest day to move house, but it could possibly mean less competition when booking a time slot.
