Our unique removal data discovered that the average cost of moving house in Watford is £1,225. However, it’s important to note that the cost of your move will vary depending on a variety of factors such as the distance to be travelled, the size of the properties involved and even the day of the week you move. To show just how much the final cost could fluctuate, we found that the highest price paid for a house removal in Watford was £1,482 whilst the lowest was £969.
For a 3-bed home in the area, the average cost of moving sits at £1,225. This is fairly lower than the UK average of £1,181 for the same sized property. Don’t forget to save up to 70% on the cost of your move by comparing removal quotes with Compare My Move.
Our removal data shows that June is the most popular month to move house in Watford, with 11.21% of users booking their move during this time of the year. This isn’t particularly surprising as summer is often a popular time for moving houses in the UK due to the brighter days and better weather.
As the summer weather often creates perfect moving conditions, it can sometimes be difficult to book a removal for the date you’d prefer. Many moving companies are busy during this season and so it’s vital you compare removal quotes as early as possible to beat the competition - you could even save up to 70% on your moving costs along the way.
However, we also discovered that the least popular month to move house in the area is January with 0% of our Watford users booking removals for that date. Winter is often avoided by movers as the dark days and potential threat of snow can make the moving process even more chaotic and stressful. As the temperature plummets and the Christmas season is introduced, fewer people will be planning to pack up and move house.
With a majority of 30.65% of Watford removals booked on this day, Friday is the most popular day of the week to move house. The weekend is often a popular time to relocate as it means less time off work and ample time to unpack and settle in. With children still in school, a Friday move could mean less disruption during the physical process and the following 2 days to gradually unpack and relax.
Saturday was the second most popular day to move in Watford with 22.94%. Again, the weekend is a favoured time of the week to move house in the UK so it’s not surprising to see these 2 days score so highly. However, it does also mean that there will likely be more competition for people who would like to book a removal on the weekend, resulting in fewer time slots being available. Don’t forget to compare removal quotes as early as possible to ensure you can book the perfect time for you and your family.
Our research also revealed that Sunday is the least popular day to move house in Watford. Only 4.38% of users booked a removal on this day, not wanting to start the working week with the chaos of unpacking. Both estate agents and conveyancing offices are closed on Sundays, meaning any issues that arise throughout the property chain will not be resolved quickly, possibly delaying the entire transaction for everyone involved.
