According to our user data, the average cost of moving in Durham is £1,561.50, based on a 3-bedroom house move. Be aware this is an average and the true cost of your move will depend on a number of factors.
Our data revealed that a removal company can cost up to £1,570 in Durham - not much more than the average for the area. We found the lowest for a removal service in the city being £803. Removal companies will commonly base costs on the size of your home, the number of items being moved, the distance between your old property and new house.
The day of the week you move can also impact the cost of your removal service. Less popular days such as Sunday have been known to be cheaper, whereas popular days, usually a Friday - and in Durham, a Monday - can potentially be more expensive days to move house.
The price of your home move will also depend on whether or not you use additional services, such as professional packing, cleaning or storage.
We found that the most popular time of year to move house in Durham is during the month of June. With summer beginning, school holidays starting and days lighter and brighter, it’s no wonder this month has proved to be so popular for a house move.
For those with children or working in education, moving house during the summer holidays is ideal. It provides ample time to settle in without disturbing the school year.
Surprisingly, May is the least popular month. This could be due to the fact that so many people wait until June to move. Just 2% of people in Durham will move house in May, compared with over 18% who do so in June.
After May, the least popular time to move in Durham is during November, followed by December. This could be due to colder weather and shorter and darker days, in addition to the fact that the end of the year tends to be a busy and expensive time in the run-up to the holidays.
Unlike the majority of the UK, Friday is not the most popular day to move house in Durham. In contrast to the rest of the country, Monday is the favoured moving day in the city, with over 25% of moves taking place on this day.
A house move on a Monday, although unusual compared to the majority of our UK-wide data, could potentially be a sound idea, with the weekend before the move set aside for packing.
In line with the rest of Britain, according to our data, Sunday is the least popular day to move house, accounting for just 4% of house moves.
Moving on a Sunday often means less time to unpack, settle in and prepare for the week ahead. Additionally, many estate agents and solicitors will be closed, meaning if you have any concerns with the home on moving day, you likely won’t be able to get hold of anyone until the following morning.
Durham is an ever-popular location, but if you’re looking to leave the area, we can help you to find a removal firm that can move you to your new home. We work with the best local removal companies, connecting you with trusted companies that meet your removal needs.
