How Much Are Removal Company Costs In Mansfield?
We found that the average cost of moving house in Mansfield is £788 based on the average 3-bedroom house. It is worth noting that this is an average and the true cost of your move will depend on various factors.
Removal companies base their costs on the size of your property, the number of belongings being moved, the distance between your new and old home and even what day of the week you move.

What Is The Best Time of Year To Move in Mansfield?
Our research found that the most popular time of year to move house in the Mansfield area is the start of the year, with the majority of moves taking place in February and March, both making up 11.15% of moves each.
With March especially marking the start of spring, weather conditions improve and days start getting longer, making this time of year preferable for moving house.
The least amount of moves were arranged during January and December, which made up 5.57% and 5.88% of the moves respectively.
This could be due colder weather conditions and shorter days which could potentially impact a move. Furthermore, December is often a busy and expensive month for many people, making it an inconvenient time to move.
What Is The Best Day Of The Week To Move In Mansfield?
Our data found that in Mansfield, like much of the country, Friday is by far the most popular day to move house. Over 31% of moves were arranged for this day of the week in the area, in stark comparison to just 3% taking place on a Sunday.
More than likely this is due to the fact that Sunday is at the end of the weekend, which could impact the working week and school week if you have young children.
Moving on a Friday gives you the weekend to unpack and settle into your new home, with several days for getting any supplies, DIY items and properly unpack at a pace that suits you.
Another reason Sunday is a less popular day to move is that many estate agents and solicitors will be closed. This could mean that if there is an issue with your new home, you may need to wait until the following day for it to be addressed.
