Cost of Moving House Increases Dramatically: Elephant Removals Comments

A recent report has found that over the past year the cost of moving house has risen dramatically in the UK and that it has now almost reached an average of a £11,000.


London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/26/2016 -- The rise in moving costs is thought to be because of a number of things, however it is apparent that the recent surge in house prices has played a huge part. With house prices rising, in turn conveyancing fees, stamp duty and estate agent fees are on the rise also – with people that are moving house now being faced with costs of 9% more in comparison to the people that moved this time last year.

This increase is incredibly sharp, and highlights the shocking fact that moving costs have increased more than wages have over the past ten year – Moving costs have risen 25% whereas full-time earnings only 17%. On average today, moving costs are 41% of the UK's average £26,500 salary.

A spokesperson from London moving company Elephant Removals was keen to comment saying, "With moving costs continuing to rise, it is important that everyone moving makes the most out of the experience and takes precautions to ensure that their days run as smoothly as possible. Although many other prices have risen alongside house prices, home removals costs on average have stayed the same – making it more important even to leave the moving of their belongings to the professionals. Hiring a removals team will ensures that belongings are moved safely and securely, in the shortest time frames, with the appropriate insurance."
