The age-old question of when is the best time to move is quite often one of the first things people ask themselves when they are ready to begin the process of making a move. The short answer to this question is that it very much depends on your needs, budget and preferences. There are pros and cons to moving during every season of the year and with that in mind, we will talk you through some optimum options for your house moving experience.
September – April
You might not realise it but autumn through to spring is generally a pretty good time to move and there are a few reasons for this. You may be able to get a better deal on your home during off-season and as well as this, demand is pretty light around this time of year too. So, quite often moving companies will have a little more flexibility compared to peak times during the summer months.
Mid Month – Midweek
It actually works in your favour to move during the middle of the month and more specifically, the middle of the week. Lots of factors impact this but often demand during this point tends to be a bit lower, again giving you a bit more flexibility. Other factors for making a midweek move optimum include reduced traffic and the likelihood for better parking or access to facilities.
Monday – Thursday
It is definitely ideal to choose a weekday as we mentioned in the previous point. The Monday to Thursday bracket of time is unsurprisingly going to be days where there is less demand and also be (hopefully) much less busy on the roads.
The saying ‘the early bird catches the worm’ certainly applies to this one and by this we mean getting your move started nice and early in the morning is certainly in your best interest. If you use a professional removals company, they’ll certainly want to get started as early as possible and make the best use of their time.
