Be aware that these are average costs and the price of a removal company for your move will depend on a number of factors. Removal companies will factor in the distance you’re moving, items you’re taking and any extra services you need. It can also depend on the day of the week you move.
According to our data, the most popular month to move house in Wiltshire is during the month of February. Over 12% of moves undertaken by Compare My Move partners in the area were done so during this month.
The least popular time of year to move house in the area was August, with less than 5% of moves taking place at this time. Although the weather conditions are better for moving in August than February, it is for this reason that August may be a less favourable time of year to move. This is a popular time of year for holidays and breaks away, especially for those with children off for the school summer holidays.
As with the majority of Britain, our data found that Friday was the most popular day to move house in Wiltshire. This preference is overwhelming, with over 27% of moves arranged
In contrast, a little over 4% of movers were conducted on a Sunday, which is the least popular day of the week to move in many - if not most - parts of the country.
A Friday move means having the whole weekend to settle in, unpack and get to know your new neighbourhood. A Sunday move, however, could mean a rushed move and not properly unpacking before having to go to work the next day.
Additionally, many estate agents, solicitors and various shops are likely to be closed on a Sunday. If you needed to query something about the homes or there is a problem, it may not be addressed until the working week beings. Similarly, if you need food or DIY supplies, you could be stuck until the following day when the shops reopen.
