Average cost of moving house
- You can save a small fortune by avoiding estate agent fees and selling your home privately using websites such as houseweb and propertybroker. Thereís lots of advice and support available too.
- If youíre using a removals company, ring around for the best deal as prices can vary.
- Check if your home contents insurance covers accidental damage during the removal process. If it doesnít, ask for extra cover to be added for the relevant days.
- Removals firms charge more if they pack for you so be organised and pack things up yourself. Itís also a chance to declutter - the less you take, the less you pay.
- Also, think about whether you actually need to move! An extension or conversion can sometimes cost the same, add value to your home and eliminate the stress of moving house.
