 With the echoes of New Year still ringing in our ears many people will be looking to move home and make a fresh start. One of the most popular questions our staffs are asked is “when is the best time of year to move home?”

The short answer is “there is no best time of year”, there is no golden rule to making the removal process flawless and the best time of year to move home is entirely dependent on your circumstances.

There are however a few factors that you should consider with regards to month when planning a move, getting this right can in most cases help at least to reduce any stress you may experience during the move itself.

New Year

The New Year is the opportune time of year to make a fresh start however if you choose to move home in January be aware that you will have to do all of your pre-move planning and packing before December unless you want to spend Christmas surrounded by boxes and reviewing removal companies. Furthermore the cold weather can make road and pavement surfaces icy and hazardous when transporting your belongings.


If your move goes to plane, moving home just in time for Christmas can help make your festive celebration particularly memorable. However it is worth remembering that Christmas is often an incredibly hectic time of year so make sure you plan well ahead to avoid spoiling the festivities.


One of the most important things to consider if you are planning to move home in the summer and have children is when there school summer holidays are. If you have older children then a couple of extra pairs of hands might help the move run smoother, if however they are younger then they may prove to be a hindrance. Also with new changes to the law in England and Wales parents can now be fined for taking their kids out of school during term time.

Spring or Autumn

Taking into account a number of factors, moving home in spring or autumn are probably your best months as there are a lot of public holidays in this month, not to mention the weather is usually quite mild. Furthermore the Easter holidays provide an ideal opportunity to get your children to help you without risking any fines.
