    What is the Best Time of Year To Move in Glasgow?

    In Glasgow, the most popular time of the year to move house is August with over 11% of home moves taking place in this warmer month. This is unsurprising as summer is often a popular time with movers as they take advantage of the warmer, longer days and the abundance of light. 

    Summer is so popular in fact, that August is also the most favoured month to move throughout the whole of the UK. With school holidays, better weather and longer days, it’s important to book your removal company in advance with Compare My Move. 

    As with the rest of the UK, the winter months of January, February and December are Glasgow’s least popular months to move house with only 5.7% of home moves occurring during December.

    What is The Best Day of The Week to Move in Glasgow?

    With the weekend providing lots of free time, Friday is the most popular day to move in Glasgow. With a majority of 34.5% of Compare My Move movers choosing this day, it’s obvious that the end of the working week is the best time to find those necessary free hours needed for a smooth and successful removal. 

    With the return to work too close to risk the removal chaos, Sunday is the least popular day to move in Glasgow with only 5% of home moves taking place then. With conveyancing offices closed at this time, this is unsurprising to see as this lack of communication could cause further delays. 

    It's important to remember that some removal companies might offer special discounts for a Sunday move or days that are in low demand, so it's worth talking to your removal company once you've compared quotes.

      Just behind London, Edinburgh is the second largest financial centre in the UK, providing an array of employment opportunities and a range of property types to choose from.
