When should I move house?
Summer is the most popular time of year to move house, with 29% of all house moves happening in this time. Although it is the most popular, it may not be the most ideal or the most functional time for you and your family. So here at AR Removals, we have provided you with the benefits of moving for each time of the year.
In Spring, everything starts to get a bit lighter, we see a bit more sun and the temperature starts to increase before the summer months. Spring also has a range of bank holidays; the long weekends give you more time to unpack and sort things out in your new home.
Summer is the favourite season to move house due to many reasons, and it’s clear to see why. Not only is it the brightest and warmest time of the year, but the large summer holidays give the kids a longer time to settle in. Due to it being the most popular time to move, you will want to book a removal service well in advance.
During autumn, you are still getting the back end of the light weather, as well as a cooler temperature, something that entices people to move at this particular time. The weather isn’t the only thing that tempts people to move in autumn, as it is just after the busy summer months, the rates of removal services go down.
The most unpopular time to move for residents in the UK. The cold weather means the conditions won’t always be ideal for a house move due to icy surfaces making it dangerous. December is the most popular winter month to move, as people want to get in and organised before Christmas at the end of the month. Christmas parties, New Years, sales and other festivities make it a very hectic few months, meaning people don’t have time to move in winter.
