"The van was there early, the men were friendly and accommodating. They were methodical and careful with all items and made sure that things were covered and secured properly when loaded onto the van. They put the bed and tables together for me in the flat and made no issue about anything. I paid slightly more as included the additional insurance. Also, any additional time taken is charged by the hour. Would definitely recommend this company. "

Agreeing with the rest of the UK, Winter was the least popular time of year to move for those living in South London. January was especially unpopular with only 6.2% choosing to move then. With cold, dark days and the risk of snow creating dangerous driving conditions, it’s no surprise that Winter isn’t popular amongst many of our British movers.
Friday was the most popular day to move house in South London, with 25.9% of our movers choosing this as their moving day. With the weekend following closely behind, Friday offers an abundance of spare time outside of the working week to unpack and settle into your new home. The ensures a much less stressful process, especially for those who do not work weekends.
The least popular day to move house, however, was Sunday with only 6.1% of movers choosing this day. Nobody wants to recover from a move during the following week and so Sunday can often be an inopportune time for many. There will also be a large number of estate agent and conveyancing offices closed, possibly disrupting the process should there be any issues that arise.
However, if it suits your personal schedule, you could find moving on a Sunday brings less competition and a fairly cheaper removal. There will be a greater number of time slots available as well as less traffic during the journey depending on the time of the move.
