Choosing the Best Day to Move House in Bath

Posted on 16th September 2021 by The Aussie Team
Choosing the Best Day to Move House in Bath

When it comes to moving to a new house, most people don’t even think about picking a specific day of the week to book their relocation on. While this might seem like a minor detail, each day of the week can make a significant difference to your move. That’s why Aussie Man & Van tries to provide our customers with the correct information to help them choose the right day to move home in Bath.

Although most major cities have daily rush-hour traffic to deal with, different days are busier than others. And choosing the right day may help you avoid congestion and make it easier to load and unpack. If this sounds confusing at the moment, don’t worry. Aussie will always advise the most efficient day and times to undertake your removals job.

How do you Pick a Day to Move Home? –

When it comes to choosing the right day to book your removals company, there are a few things that you’ll need to consider. Friday is usually the most chosen day that people pick for their relocation. And that can cause issues because you might have to book early to secure it. Additionally, Friday just happens also to be the busiest day for the banking sector.

Most banks have a deadline for their Friday transactions at 3 pm, and it’s usually the same time as they close.  You might find yourself in a situation where the seller doesn’t receive the full payment on time. Legally, they’re within their rights to delay the handing over of keys. For this reason, it’s worth considering a day earlier in the week. This will give you more time to clear payments and deal with issues.

At Aussie, we can sometimes offer discounts for Tuesday and Wednesday removals, depending on availability. That means if we don’t have any bookings, we can discuss reducing our rates. However, there are also benefits when booking a Friday for your move. You will be able to use the entire weekend to unpack and settle into your new home without having to take additional days off work. It does make a lot of sense, but we do like to inform our customers about the possible issues as well.

Friday Relocations – The Pros & Cons –

So, let’s look at some of the pros and cons of aiming for a Friday removals booking. You’ll be able to gauge how it lines up against your needs and whether it’s a good option.

Pros – 

  • You get a whole weekend to unpack.
  • Only need to book one day off work and have three moving days.
  • Additional booking time (necessary to secure the Friday) gives you more time to clear tasks.

Cons – 

  • Banking deadline is 3 pm, and this can cause issues with final payments.
  • The Knock-on effect might mean being unable to move in on time.
  • Popularity means booking well in advance to secure.
  • Some providers charge a premium for a Friday job.
  • Any delay will mean waiting until Monday, which includes utilities.

On the balance of this, it’s easy to see quite a few potential pitfalls for booking (or trying to) a Friday relocation. However, please don’t take this as us stating no one should book this day to move. The additional unpacking days it enables is handy if everything goes according to plan. By booking with Aussie, we will give you prompts and tips to make sure you avoid issues.

Midweek Moves and Avoiding Issues –

While it’s handy having the extra days, we’re not convinced Friday is the best moving day for everyone. It takes balance to see what’s more suitable, and we’re suggesting you don’t make a firm decision until weighing up every choice. Always look at various options and be objective about what they entail. That’s why you should keep an open mind about midweek relocations.

By choosing a Tuesday or Wednesday move, there’s a higher likelihood you’ll secure a booking. There might be one-off discounts for quieter periods. We can’t guarantee this, but it’s worth checking in with us. Ultimately, something like a late payment won’t derail the moving in for midweek removals jobs. Simply sort it out the following day, and you’ll avoid the Friday 3 pm cut-off deadline.

With enough planning, you should only need one day off work to complete the move, regardless of what day you end up choosing. Then you can stagger the unpacking and tackle the bulk at the weekend. Essentially, you’ll then receive the same advantage as Friday movers achieve, all by taking things a little slower and unpacking gradually.

Self Storage if a Delay Happens –

There’s no getting away from it – no relocation is immune to problems, and it’s worth knowing what to do if something doesn’t go to plan. A delay can sometimes undo even the best planning. The results usually mean you can’t move in on the agreed date for anyone who’s part of a moving chain. While this isn’t common, we do have short-term storage customers in this situation.

There’s no need to panic – let’s keep in mind what’s important and know how to respond instead of reacting. A secure place for your possessions is the essential outcome in this scenario. And by contacting Aussie, we have you sorted and can act straight away. Self storage will give you the security you need for your belongings while you tackle the cause of the delay.

We have a range of storage packages and unit sizes to choose from. There’s no minimum storage period to worry about, and that makes it a vital contingency plan for emergencies. You’ll receive the highest standard of security and protection for your possessions. Furthermore, it’s an easy process to initiate – just contact us to inquire, and we’ll walk you through the steps.

A Range of Removals Services Available –

When you know the relocation date, it’s time to book up and secure a moving day. Aussie has a range of removals and storage packages to suit all budgets and requirements. This includes a fleet of removal vehicles to handle any type of move for households and businesses in Bath, Somerset, and the neighbouring areas.

Our Man & Van service is ideal for smaller volumes for people and small businesses moving locally. We charge by the hour, and each job gives you access to two Aussie team members who will do all the hard work. Then we have a Home Removals package that covers every size up from man with a van service. These vans have more capacity and do it all in one journey.

For long-distance jobs, we have National and European services available. And for moves that fall outside of the EU, we can provide assistance with the documentation and other arrangements for international relocations. It’s part of our ethos to be flexible and accommodating to anyone who has a unique need. Best of all – it’s all under one roof, meaning we can cover all your requirements.
