"From first approaching the company for a quote, I was very impressed and their quote was very competitive. Communication was faultless. The removal guys arrived slightly earlier than expected on the day which was great and were extremely friendly and professional. The service was slick at both ends and the two guys worked really hard but with a good sense of humour, nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this company to friends and family, or to anyone needing a removal company!"

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 research, May is the most popular month to move house in Stockport, with 14.29% of users choosing this time of year. April follows closely behind with 13.06%, showing that many Stockport movers prefer the spring months to move house.
Whilst summer is often the favourite across the UK, it’s not surprising that spring is preferred in Stockport as, not only does it mean less competition, but the bright days and improving weather can often result in great moving conditions. If you’re moving with children, you may also decide to move at this time to avoid exam season and to move during the spring or Easter holidays.
December proved to be the least popular month to move house, with only 3.67% of our users using this as their moving date. Winter is often avoided amongst movers as the Christmas period, darker days and the threat of snow can create some chaotic and difficult moving journeys.
According to our removals data, Friday is the most popular day to move house in Stockport, with 28.57% of users choosing this as their moving date. Saturday came in as a close second with 21.63%. It’s not surprising that many movers prefer the weekend to complete their moves as the extra free time ensures a less rushed and stressful process.
Not only will you have the majority of the day to complete the physical move, but a weekend date means you have a day or two to carefully unpack and settle into the new property. To beat the competition, don’t forget to compare removal quotes as early as possible to ensure you’re able to book a timeslot best suited to you.
The least popular day to move house in Stockport is Sunday, with only 4.90%. Sundays often result in estate agents and conveyancing offices being closed, reducing the communication throughout the property chain. This can sometimes lead to delays, making the moving day more chaotic and tedious. However, it will likely result in less competition so a Sunday move may be useful for those with a hectic social schedule.
