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

    According to our unique data, the most popular month to move house in Portsmouth was January, with around 10.76% of our users booking this date. Despite the colder weather, many movers may choose this date as the start of a new year often brings new and exciting opportunities. With many people believing the new year to be ‘a blank slate’, it’s not surprising that some decided that this is the perfect time to relocate.

    The second most popular month was July, with approximately 10.26%. The summer months are often a favourite amongst movers across the UK, with brighter days and warmer weather often resulting in perfect moving conditions. With the school holidays also in full swing, it often means a lot less disruption for families moving with children.

    We also discovered that the least popular month to move house in Portsmouth was November with only 5.63% of movers choosing this date. December was close behind with a mere 6.64%. This isn’t surprising as the holiday period is often too hectic to also organise a house move. It is already a rather expensive and chaotic time, so it’s understandable that many movers would prefer to wait until the new year to begin their journey.

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

    When researching house moves in Portsmouth, we discovered that Monday was the most popular day to move in the area. Around 18.21% of movers chose this for their moving date according to our data. This is fairly surprising as we’ve often seen the weekend be the most favoured time of the week to move. However, if you’re able to take the time off work, moving at the start of the week would provide you with much more time to unpack and settle in.

    The least popular day to move house in Portsmouth was Saturday, with only 9.96%. If you’re moving with children, Saturday may not be an ideal time to book your removal as schools will be closed, meaning your children will be home during the chaos. It may also result in a rather uncomfortable living arrangement as many basic utilities will only be activated the following Monday. Despite the abundance of free time, it’s often viewed as ‘unlucky’ to move house on a Saturday - this may possibly be a superstition that also affected many movers' opinions.

    Whether you decide on a weekend or weekday house move, rest assured that our removal partners are available to help no matter what the requirements.
