Moving is stressful, time-consuming, and tiring. You need to have the right house removal company to make moving painless. EaseFix makes moving easier by offering an array of reliable house removal companies near you in Stockport.

How Much Does It Cost to Move?

The average house removals cost for a 3-bedroom house in Stockport is about £900. House removals prices depend on various factors such as:

  • Distance
  • Size of home
  • Packing costs
  • Number of items
  • Fragility of items
  • Day of moving

Distance

The longer the distance you're moving from your old house to your new home, the more expensive it will be to move. Most moving companies charge a standard rate of 40 km. After that, the charge can go up to £1 per extra km.

Size of Home

The larger the home you are moving to or from, the more expensive it will be. Moving from a one-bedroom house is cheaper as you haven't accumulated a lot of furniture and belongings as someone moving from a three or four-bedroom house.

Packing Costs

The cost of packing and unpacking might cost upwards of £300. If you have the time and help from friends or family, it's best to do your packing. However, if you lack both time and a helping hand, EaseFix will help you find house-to-home removals that can help you pack.

Number of Items

The higher the volume of belongings you have, the more expensive it will be, as it will be time-consuming to pack, load, and offload your items. Some house moving removals charge by the hour. Hence, the longer it takes them to help move you, the more expensive it is.

Fragility of Items

It would be more expensive to move fragile and valuable items. Some removal companies offer moving insurance for an additional cost just in case something valuable breaks or become damaged.

Day of the Move

It's usually costly to move on Fridays and Saturdays because of traffic. The best time to move would be a Sunday as there is little traffic plus not many people are moving. In addition, because of the good weather, summer is usually a bad time to move as many people would opt to move then.

How Do I Organise My House Removal?

The best way to organise your house removal is to take time off work and call a few mates to help you pack. This will save you some packing costs. You can get many good boxes or crates and a marker and label the boxes so it will be easy to pack and unpack.

When Should I Book a Removal Company?

The best time to book a removal company is 4 – 6 weeks before moving into a new place. Always ensure that your new home is move-in-ready to avoid last-minute cancellations. However, some companies offer storage at an extra cost if you ever find your new home is ready for moving in.
