In Leicester, we discovered that the best and most popular time of year to move house is in August, with over 12% of home moves occurring then. Summer is often a favourite time of year to move as the longer and brighter days make the perfect conditions and the school holidays ensures that children are not disrupted during their schoolwork.
August is also the most popular time to move house for the entirety of the UK, proving that summer has the optimal conditions for moving house. The school holidays means exam season is over and the British weather starts to peak, meaning more removals can be booked. Don’t forget to compare quotes early as the increase in competition could reduce the number of time slots available.
With only 5.9% of removals booked during February, Winter seems to be the least popular time of year to move house in Leicester. This is understandable as the cold weather and darker days aren’t the best conditions for transporting personal belongings. April is also unpopular among Leicester movers, possibly due to the looming exam season where children’s schoolwork increases.
As the weekend provides ample amounts of free time to unpack and prepare for the upcoming week, it’s unsurprising that Friday is the most popular day to move house in Leicester. Just under 35% of our users booked their removals for this day, ensuring they had the following weekend to clean and settle in before returning to work.
Only 4.6% of users chose a Sunday as their removal date, making it the least popular day to move for the city. However, Sunday is also the cheapest day to move house, helping you stretch your budget further. If the looming working week doesn’t dissuade you, consider booking your moving date on a Sunday to reduce competition.
