Our unique data shows that the average removal company costs in Hertfordshire are £937. This is the UK average cost for a Friday move as it’s the most popular day for the country. The highest you could pay for your move is £1,110 and the lowest could be £717, according to our Hertfordshire movers.
Your total cost for your move will depend on the distance travelled, the removal company you pick, any additional services you require and the time of year and day of the week you move. When you compare removal quotes for a few different companies as well as different days and months, you’re ensuring you get the best price for your removal company costs.
Our data shows that the most popular time of year to book a removal company is June, with 10.56% of all house moves taking place. It’s clear that summer is a favourite season for a house move, with a further 9.91% choosing May as their second choice. With warmer and lighter days, it’s understandable why it’s a favoured time of year.
January and September are the least favourite months to book a house removal, with both only seeing 6.03% of moves. Avoiding the beginning of a school term is a clear trend among our UK movers. As well as clashing with school schedules, these months tend to offer less light and warmth, making a move quite stressful.
Remember, certain removal companies might offer special discounts during their quiet periods to pick up work. It’s worth comparing removal companies for different times of year if you’re flexible on moving dates.
Following the UK trend, Friday is by far the most popular day of the week to book a removal company, with 28.66% opting for an end of week move. With the upcoming weekend giving people that extra time off work to settle in, we can see why Friday is the favourite day to move house. There’s no surprise that 16.81% of all Hertfordshire moves chose a Saturday for their removals.
Sunday is the least favourite day to book a removal company in Hertfordshire, with just 7.86% opting for this day. With the working week looming and the likes of estate agents and solicitors’ offices closed, many people avoid moving house on a Sunday to avoid any disruption to the property chain.
It’s important to note that removal companies might be offering a special discount on certain days to boost their work. You should compare multiple removal company quotes for different days and times of the year, if you’re flexible when you can move.
