Summer is often a popular time of the year for moving house in the UK. With the longer and brighter days and improving weather, summertime often brings the perfect moving conditions ensuring a safe and stress-free journey. However, with this popularity comes competition, so don't forget to book your removal early to ensure you get the best time for you.
Only 5.38% of movers opted for a December house move according to our research, making it the least favourite month to move in Westminster. December is often a busy time of the year due to the festive season. Many movers prefer to enjoy Christmas before tackling the job of moving house, which is why this data isn't particularly surprising to see. October was another unpopular month, with just 6.21% choosing this colder date. Again, this isn't very surprising as autumn weather, much like during the winter, doesn't always result in safe or easy moving conditions.
What Is The Best Day Of The Week To Move In Westminster?
Our dedicated team have completed a range of research for your Westminster move, so you don't have to. Our unique data shows that the best day to move house in this section of London is Saturday, with 24.07% opting for this day throughout 2020. The weekend is often viewed as an ideal time to move house as the extra free time means you have a greater chance of finishing your unpacking before going back to work. This means you get much more time to settle in, with no added disruption.
We also discovered that the least favourite day for a move in Westminster is Sunday, with just 8.22% choosing this day when booking. With estate agents and solicitor's offices generally closed on Sundays, we can see why people would typically avoid this day. With the working week following so closely behind, it doesn't give you much time to settle. However, it can sometimes mean less competition, ensuring you book a time that's perfect for you.
