At Via Removals and Storage, we have the expertise to ensure your house or office move is completed safely, smoothly and efficiently.
"Via did a fantastic job for me. I can't recommend them highly enough. Legal difficulties meant that I couldn't book a mover until the day before and it was not only a regularly full four-bedroom house, but also a garage and loft conversion containing 1000s of heavy old 78rpm records (140 boxes), which we didn't know till late in the day that the team would also have to move those after being let down by the friend who was going to help with this more special job. They were absolutely fantastic, and, as if these circumstances weren't bad enough, they also had to deal with the new owners being completely unreasonable and vile to them and even throwing them out of the house at one point, but they were totally professional down to the last man. I can't thank them enough. I'm sorry its taken a month for me to be able to get this review written, but I couldn't do it from my phone for some reason and I've only just got the laptop set-up with the internet in the new house. I wish Via all the very best for business in the future and I similarly wish all the very best to each and every one of those wonderful lads who were fabulous under those awful circumstances. HEROES !!"

Dolphin Removals and Storage Ltd are a reliable, professional and family-run moving company and proud members of the British Association of Removers (BAR).
"Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Dolphin Removals. At fairly short notice they did a remote evaluation of our furniture etc and gave a very competitive quote. We were the top of a chain of seven houses and our solicitor had said it maybe early afternoon before we could have access to our new home so I took out their late key insurance to cover any delay. On the actual day of the move there was a delay at the bottom of the chain so we didn't get the keys until 5:20pm. The removal team were brilliant. They were patient and when we finally got access they worked incredibly hard to get our belongings into the new house. They didn't leave until gone 7pm but they were still polite, patient and smiling despite having then to drive from Shropshire to Liverpool.Thanks very much guys and well done. If you need a removal firm you won't get any better than Dolphin."

We analysed more than 2,000 Manchester house removal quotes and found that the most popular time of year to move is August. It’s not a surprise that 14% of Compare My Move’s house removals in that area took place in the summer when the days are warmer and longer.
Not only will you have more daylight to take advantage of during your summer move, moving in August is favoured by the majority of the UK which means there will always be a trusted and verified Compare My Move partner on hand.
The winter months of January, October and December are Manchester’s least favourite months to move house, with just 6% of moves taking place in these months. This is most likely due to the potential for bad weather, colder moving conditions and shorter days
Friday is the most popular day to move house in Manchester, with 29% of Compare My Move movers choosing to move on the gateway to the weekend. This allows movers to have the weekend to settle into their new home.
Saturday follows closely as the most popular day to move, with 18% of Manchester moves taking place then. Again, this allows time outside of the working week.
Sunday is the least popular day to move house amongst Compare My Move's movers. However, it also happens to be the cheapest day to move house so don't automatically reject this day to move.
If you're moving out of the city, you're not alone. Compare My Move's removal companies see many long-distance moves every week. The most popular destination for many of our Manchester movers is London, with 4.8% of house removals going here. Salford, Stockport and Sale are favourites, too.
However, with the average property price in Manchester standing at £227,721, a move to London means a considerable increase in property prices, with the average price for property currently at £496,269.
With this in mind, many movers opt for areas nearby Manchester that offer cheaper property. Compare My Move's removal companies carry out many moves from Manchester to places like Salford. With the average property price in this area currently £195,495, less than half the average price of a property in London, it's not hard to see why.
London is the most popular destination for home moves from Manchester. It’s not a surprise that people are packing up and moving to the capital with the wealth of job opportunities, green spaces and diverse lifestyles. The only drawback of moving to London is the high property prices, with the average property costing £496,269.
With an average property price of £195,495, Salford offers a more affordable property market than Manchester. Home to the BBC and ITV, Salford offers plenty of job opportunities as well as an easy commute into Manchester if you’re still working in the city.
A wealth of Victorian and Edwardian property, Stockport boasts fairly reasonable house prices with the average set at £253,672. With a well-connected transport system and an abundance of excellent Ofsted rated schools, there’s no doubt living in Stockport has its benefits.
Voted one of the best places to live in England, Sale has an average property price of £334,900. Acting as a popular commuter town to Manchester, we can see why people would like to move home and settle in Sale. The town also boasts a majority of “excellent” Ofsted rated schools as well as plenty of green spaces.
Whether you're moving in or out of Manchester, Compare My Move's trusted removal companies can accommodate both short and long-distance moves.
