Moving is both an exciting and stressful experience for many reasons, one of the main ones being the long list of things to do from the decision you take to move, until the first day in your new home. Should you move during the week or in the weekend? Which is better, cheaper, more convenient and easier? Both moving during the week and in the weekend have their pros and cons. However, relocating at the time that is most convenient to you is important so let’s take a look at what those two options may offer.

Is It Cheaper to Move During the Week?

If we are talking only moneywise, there could be a difference with moving during the week and moving in one weekend. Since weekends is the time when most people choose to move, movers are busier and some companies have higher rates for weekend moves. This means that you may find it harder to secure reliable weekend movers and may have to pay higher moving costs when you do, especially in summer and during the first and last weekends of a month which is the busiest time for moving companies. The same goes true more so if those weekends match a holiday.

If you have to consider another aspect of the move, i.e. your time, then the picture will be different. If you’re like most people then you have a regular full day 9 to 5 job which keeps you busy during the day except for weekends and holidays. This is where waiting til the last minute to secure movers may cost you more, especially if you’re also looking for last minute weekend moving services.

Cost is always the main issue with every move. The time matters as well because weekends is when most people plan their moves and although road traffic is lower, you want to account for securing an elevator to your building, that you’ve secured the loading dock or space, that you’ve completed any packing on your own, and you’re aware of any weekend road construction or road closures. Although these factors aren’t as widely faced during weekday moves, you want to instead account for morning and evening traffic congestion.
