We found that the average removal costs for a residential move in York are £937. According to our research and data, the highest you can expect to pay for a company in the area is around £1,110, with the lowest being £717.
Removal companies will base their costs on the size of your property, the number of belongings being moved, the distance between your new and old home and sometimes even what day of the week you move. As Friday is the most popular day to move house in York, it is likely it will also be the most expensive.
Costs will also depend on whether or not you use additional services, such as professional packing or storage options.
Our research found that the most popular time of year to move house in York is during the month of August. This is likely due to the fact that August falls during the school summer holidays, meaning little to no disruption to school for families with children. This is also an ideal time for those working in education to move.
Beyond that, August also offers longer and warmer days, making for a more pleasant moving and unpacking process. Second to August isn the month of July, which is likely popular for the same reasons.
In contrast, the least popular time to move house is towards the start of the year and early spring. April accounts for less than 3% of moves, with March and February also less popular.
In line with the majority of the UK, Friday proved to be the most popular day to move house among our York users. Over 24% of moves took place in the area on the last day of the working week, four times the amount of moves that happened on a Sunday.
Moving house on a Friday means minimal disruption to both the traditional working week and to school hours if you are moving with children. It means having the entire weekend to unpack, settle in and get to know your new neighbourhood.
Moving on a Sunday, the least popular day to move in York, could mean rushing to be done in time for work the following day. Additionally, many estate agents and solicitor offices are closed on a Sunday, meaning if there is any kind of issue or concern upon moving into your new home, addressing the problem will likely be delayed.
