    What is the best day of the week for storage in Birmingham?

    The most popular day of the week to rent a storage unit in Birmingham according to our data is on a Thursday, with the least popular day being a Sunday.

    Less than 4% of storage hires were arranged on a Sunday in the city, whereas almost 23% were on a Thursday. As Thursday is closer to the start of the weekend, this could be the reason for the popularity.

    We have found in our data that Sunday can also be the least popular day for a house move in the majority of the UK. For this reason, it could be that these are connected and a Sunday is a day where moving - be it from one house to another or to a storage unit - is avoided. Furthermore, many shops and services are closed on a Sunday, so if you need supplies, you may need to wait until the following day.
