How Much Are Removal Company Costs In Wokingham?
The average cost of moving in Wokingham is £1,648, based on a 3-bedroom house move. As this is an average, keep in mind that the true cost of your own move will depend on a number of different factors.
The most you can expect to pay for a removal company Harlow is £1,838, with the lowest being £1,141.
Removal companies will usually base their costs on the size of your property, the number of items being moved, the distance between your new and old home and even what day of the week you move.
Less popular days to move house, such as Sunday, could be cheaper if you are open to which day you move on. Friday can potentially be more expensive as it’s usually the most popular day to move house.
Costs will also depend on whether or not you use additional services, such as professional packing or self-storage options.
What Is The Best Time of Year To Move in Wokingham?
The most popular time of year to move house in Wokingham is during the month of June, with almost 15% of our users in the area arranging a move for mid-year. In contrast, less than 5% opted to move at the start of the year, with January proving unpopular.
The benefits of moving during June is that the days will be longer, evenings lighter and overall moving condition will be preferable. It is also an ideal time for families with children in school to move, in addition for those working in education, as June marks the start of the school summer holidays.
In addition to January, December is also a far less popular month to move, accounting for a little over 5% of moves among our Wokingham users. This is likely because of colder weather and shorter and darker days which could potentially impact a move, even causing delays for some.
December is also often a very busy and expensive month for many people, further putting people off moving house during this time and the month following.
What Is The Best Day Of The Week To Move In Wokingham?
Our data found that like most of the country, Wokingham movers prefer to move house on a Friday more than any other day of the week. Friday moves account for over 30% of the moves undertaken by our Wokingham users.
Again, in line with trends seen across the UK, Sunday is the least popular day, with just 3% of moves taking place at the end of the weekend.
Moving house on a Friday gives you the entire weekend to unpack and settle into your new home and those with children may favour a Friday as it also means less disruption to school hours.
In contrast, Sunday could impact the working and school week ahead, which is likely one of the reasons why people avoid moving on this day. Sunday leaves less time to unpack, settle in and prepare for the week ahead.
It may also be a less popular day to move due to the fact that many estate agents and solicitors are likely to be closed. This means that if you have any concerns with the home when you move in, you will need to wait until at least the following day to talk to someone.
