    What is The Best Time of Year To Move House in Essex?

    After analysing over 2,000 Essex removal quotes, Compare My Move found that the most popular month to move house in the area was August, with over 13% of removal quotes booked during this month. The summer months are often a popular choice with movers, as the brighter days and warmer weather creates the perfect moving conditions. Don’t forget to compare removal quotes early to help you get the best time slot for you and your schedule. 

    The least popular month in this area is April, with only 6% of removals going ahead at this time. April can often be a difficult month for families as exam season is quietly looming for schools and the chaos of the move can often be an added strain on children. However, if it suits your schedule just fine, it could be a great time of the year to book as competition will often decrease.
