How Much Are House Removal Costs In Southampton?
We’ve worked out the average removal company cost in Southampton in £937. This is based on the most popular day to move house which is a Friday for our Southampton movers. As the most popular day, Friday is surprisingly not the cheapest day to move house. Tuesday takes the crown for the most expensive moving day, costing an average of £1,110. However, if Tuesday is the only day that best suits your schedule, don't forget to compare removal quotes to potentially save up to 70% on the overall cost.
If you’re moving house on a Sunday in Southampton, expect to pay an average of £717. With just 6% of moves taking place, removal companies offer a cheap moving day to help boost their work. However, with estate agents and conveyancers offices closed on Sundays, we don’t think a Sunday move will increase in price or popularity any time soon.compare now
