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 !!"

According to our unique data, the average cost of moving house in Preston is £1,536. This is based on a 3-bedroom property in the area. We’ve worked out that the lowest you can expect to pay for a removal company in the area is £995, with the highest amount reaching £2,076.
The cost of removal companies will depend largely on the size of the property, the distance of the move and sometimes the location of your property. It will also depend on which removal company you opt for. Remember that you can save up to 70% on your costs by comparing removal companies with us.
According to our data, the most popular time of year to move in Preston is in the month of April. This comes as little surprise as the spring offers lighter days, better weather and better moving conditions than in the winter months, which are often the least popular time to move. In fact, our data found December was the least popular month to move in the area, with less than 6% of our users moving at this time.
With shorter and darker days, the potential for poor weather conditions and the pressure of the festive season, many home movers will avoid December as it can often cause unnecessary stress during the move.
Unusually, the most popular day to move house in Preston is on a Monday, with over 20% of our users opting to move at the start of the week. In many parts of the UK, this is usually one of the least popular days to move as it is at the beginning of the working week. In some cases, however, it can be a cheaper day to move than Friday or Saturday, which may be why people in the area opt for this day. Friday is the second most popular day to move, more than likely due to the fact that it allows time over the weekend to settle in.
Sunday is the least popular day to move house in Preston, with just 6% of our users moving on this day. In addition to a Sunday move potentially having an impact on the working week, often many estate agents and solicitors offices will be closed on Sunday. If there is an issue during the move, this would have to wait until the following day for it to be resolved.
Preston has a lot on offer with the Harris Museum & Art Gallery and Brockholes Nature Reserve. It was voted the best city to live and work in north-west England in 2016, ranking 19th overall in the UK. However, for those looking to move out of the area, we’ve looked at the top four places people move to from Preston based on our own unique data.
We found that the most popular location to move to from Preston was Leyland, with an average property price of £186,522. Blackburn, Chorley and Manchester were also popular choices, with Blackburn being the cheapest of the four and Manchester being the most expensive.

The average property price in the area of Leyland, also within Lancashire, is currently £186,522.

For those currently not looking to buy a property, renting is also an option in Preston, with various areas to choose from. On average, the cost of rent is £1,027 pcm, although this varies depending on where you decide to live. However, for the most part, we found the prices were relatively consistent across the area.
