We’ve worked out the average removal company cost in Southampton is £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
Our research shows that September is the most popular month to move house in Southampton, with 13% of moves taking place. Followed closely by August with 11%, it's clear Southampton movers prefer the summer months for moving house.
With longer and warmer days to take advantage of in the summer, it's not hard to see why this is such a popular time to move. If you’re moving house with young children, then a summer move will help make a smoother transition with school holidays and time off work.

To avoid any delays in your moving house process, a weekday move is advised. A Wednesday move will cost on average £770, the second cheapest day of the week to move house, as well as the second least favourite.
