How Much Are Removal Company Costs In Newbury
Whilst researching home removals in the area, we found that the average cost of moving house in Newbury is £1,691 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 and size of items being moved, the distance between your new and old home and even what day of the week you move. Less popular days, such as Sunday and Tuesday in Newbury, could be cheaper if you are open to which day you move on. Popular days such as Friday or Saturday can potentially be more expensive.
Costs will also depend on whether or not you use additional services, such as professional packing or storage. The most you can expect to pay for a removal company in Newbury is £1,875, with the lowest being £1,148.
What Is The Best Time of Year To Move in Newbury?
Our research found that the most popular time of year to move house in Newbury is in June, closely followed by July, making up 12.29 and 11.96% of movers respectfully.
June marks the start of the school holidays, making it an ideal time for families with young children to move. This is also the best time for those working in the education sector.
Furthermore, conditions are better during the summer months, with lighter, longer days. This is in contrast to the least popular month to move in Newbury which is November when the weather is colder and days shorter. Less than 4% of moves took place in Newbury during this month.
That said, over 9% of moves took place in December. This could be down to the fact that many people want to complete their purchase and move into a new home before Christmas, thus causing an influx of moves during the month.
What Is The Best Day Of The Week To Move In Newbury?
Our data found that for movers in Newbury, like much of the country, Friday is by far the most popular day to book a removal company. Over 26% of moves were arranged for this day of the week in the area, in stark comparison to just 4% taking place on a Sunday.
With Sunday being at the end of the weekend, moving on this day could potentially impact the working week and school week if you have young children. It could also mean rushing to unpack and prepare for the following morning.
Moving on a Friday gives you the weekend to unpack and settle into your new home, with several days for getting necessities, DIY supplies 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.
