It’s Spring and the removals market is blooming

| May 16, 2016

Spring and Summer are our busiest times in the removals industry.

Every year there are a flurry of properties going on the market in early Spring, and by late Spring and Summer people are in a position to start moving.

A lot of people have it in their heads that they have to move on a Friday – a tradition that seems to reach back as long as we can remember! However, it is just not true! It’s definitely the case that Friday is the busiest day in the moving world, and of course it’s helpful having a weekend to unpack and get settled. But you can often get better deals choosing a midweek date. Plus you avoid the potential issue of hitting a snag in the moving process, and then the banks/solicitors being closed over the weekend for two days – leaving you in limbo and potentially temporarily homeless!

In the UK an estimated 11 per cent of the population – over six million people – move every year.

That’s a lot of people packing up everything they own and a busy time for removals firms – especially if they’re all aiming for a Friday move date in Spring!

However, on the flip side, one in 10 people have lived in the same house for over 30 years, and six in ten for 15 years or more. The average Brit will move eight times during their lifetime.
