Moving home before Christmas

It is clear that the property market in the UK has quickly picked up over the last few years, and despite showing some signs of now levelling off, we are entering into one of our busiest periods of the year. We have always experienced large numbers of customers wanting to complete and be in their new property in time for Christmas.

Last year the run up to Christmas was the busiest for Leamington Spa removals we have ever experienced, and made more challenging by the way we buy and sell properties in this country. With the holiday period, and the shut down before Christmas and New Year, we saw a mad rush for people to exchange and complete before this break… We even moved two families on Christmas Eve! 

We do still have some availability for moves in December, but would recommend having a quick look through the following suggestions to ensure you aren’t disappointed.

Tips for Moving Home Before Christmas:

  • Push solicitors for an exchange date as soon as possible, it’s now getting quite close…
  • Avoid Friday completions at all costs… 
  • Speak to us about your options, it may be that a removal with a brief period of holdover storage could be your best bet
  • Opt for our packing service, this will save you days of planning and preparation, and ensure that everything reaches you in one piece


If the worst comes to the worst and you are unable to move in before Christmas, don’t worry too much. We will be able to move you either in the period between Christmas and the New Year, or in early January.

If you are planning on moving in time for the holidays, we would advise contacting us as soon as possible to arrange your free removal survey and quotation.
