Winter is not the most popular time to relocate but it can be the best time to move house or office. Most people prefer to move in summer because of the warm weather and school breaks. But moving in summer can be an expensive and difficult to arrange job. Winter months can be the perfect time to relocate if you want to move quickly and save some cash.
You will save lots of money
Moving house during the off season can be cheap and easy to do. Removal companies are not too busy at this time of the year and offer low prices and heavy discounts. This can help you keep your removal costs to a minimum.
Prepare a cold-weather removal
Keep in mind that carrying out a winter move can sometimes be a difficult endeavour. You should be prepared to move in bad weather. Check weather reports to make sure you will not be surprised by winter storms. Hire a reliable man with a van team that is flexible and will not charge you extra should you have to reschedule your appointment due to bad weather.
It is much easier to book an appointment
Man and van companies have plenty of booking times available so you can choose a date and time that best suits you. Movers are more flexible in winter and can easily come at short notice. You will not have to plan your move ahead of time as the company will be available to carry out the move at the date you require.
It is safer and faster
Just imagine how busy the roads of England are in summer! Millions of people relocate or travel the roads due to school breaks, vacations and free time. Moreover this is the peak season for trucking companies. During the winter roads are less busy and this results in shorter and safer travel.
Move house in December and you will be in your new home for Christmas
If you have decided to move house in December then it’s best to do it at the beginning of the month. This way you will have plenty of time to unpack and settle in your new home. Moving home at Christmas or just before it can be a bad idea especially if you have kids. You may not have time to decorate the Christmas tree and this will ruin the holidays.
How much does it cost to hire a man and van?
The cost of man with van hire depends of the type of move, the amount and type of items you need moving and the number of movers you want to hire. Whether you need to move a few sofas or a house full of items, moving in winter can cost you less than you can imagine. Man and van companies significantly lower their rates during the winter season. You may end up paying around 30% off the regular price for moving.
Find a reliable removal company and your move will be a breeze. Benefit from the low cost and you will be able to fully enjoy the holiday season!
