    How Much Are Removal Company Costs In Croydon?

    Compare My Move’s recent data shows that the average overall cost for moving house in Croydon is £835.93. At the highest end for the area, a house move could cost up to £1,080.

    Our research shows that the average price of a 2-bedroom house move in Croydon sits at £1006.83, although your move could cost as little as £591.86. Your removal company cost will be based on the size of your move, the location of your property, distance between properties and the services you require, such as packing or dismantling furniture.

    What Is The Best Time of Year To Move in Croydon?

    Compare My Move found that the best time of year to move in Croydon is during the Summer. According to our data, the most popular month for a house move within Croydon is August, closely followed by July and September. With less chance of rain and longer, warmer days, it’s no wonder homemovers prefer to complete their property move during the Summer months. 

    In addition to being the best time of year for the move itself, it is also a cost effective time to move into your new home. The Summer means lighter and warmer evenings, contributing to lower gas and electric bills. At an expensive time such as buying and moving home, this can be highly beneficial. 

    In contrast, the least popular time of year to move was Winter, with the fewest amount of moves in Croydon taking place in January and February, according to research from Compare My Move.

    What Is The Best Day Of The Week To Move In Croydon?

    The best day of the week to move within Croydon is Friday, with over 25% of Compare My Move customers moving house on the last day of the week. A Friday move means you have the whole weekend to unpack and settle in, so it’s no surprise this proved the most popular day for a house move. 

    Our data found Sunday is the least popular day, with just 6.5% of Compare My Move movers choosing to move house on this day. This is not surprising considering many estate agents and conveyancers are closed on a Sunday, which could mean delays if you need to contact either on the day you move.
