    What is the Best Time of Year To Move in Reading?

    In Reading, the most popular month to move house is August with over 11.8% of home moves occurring during this time. This is unsurprising due to the warmer weather and longer days helping improve the ease of the removal - no one wants to unload heavy furniture in the dark. 

    August just so happens to be the most popular month to move house across the UK too. Not only does the improvement of the weather help, but so does the school holidays as they minimise the disruption to your children’s daily routines. Don’t forget to book fast and compare removal quotes with Compare My Move as this is a rather popular time for many local companies.

    What is the Best Day Of The Week To Move in Reading?

    With the weekend providing movers with plenty of time to pack and prepare, Monday is the most popular day to move in Reading. Over 18.5% of removals were booked on this day despite it being the start of the busy working week.  

    Surprisingly, with only 9.9% of removals occurring on this day, Saturday is the least popular day to move house. As the weekend provides lots of free time for many people, it’s a popular choice for many across the UK. 

    However, Reading residents may see this as a disadvantage due to the increase in competition and so perhaps that’s why many choose to book their removals during the working week instead.
