London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/19/2015 -- According to a key news Publication City AM, the costs of moving house rose considerably last year, as can be seen through recently-released statics by Lloyds banking group. Last year the price of moving house rose by £431 in the UK, which brought the average total figure of moving costs (including estate agent costs, surveying etc.) to £8,698. This was notably an increase up from £8,258 in 2013 and figures which were as low as £7,552 in 2004.
The results mean that last year the UK spent approximately £7.5bn on moving homes – which could be seen as a significant £1bn more than in 2013. The significant costs of moving house have been linked to a number of factors, as not only is the housing market unpredictable, but also additional charges are often added.
Particular charges people often do not expect but often find themselves facing when moving home are estate agent costs and possible landlord fees. There are also aspects such as packaging and cleaning services to consider; services which many people leave to the last moment, instead of shopping around for the best deals.
Top removals are key UK providers of packing, freight and moving services and are frequent commentators upon the industry. They were quick to reflect in the light of these latest statistics.
"The rising costs of moving home is obviously concerning," A spokesperson told us "As we firmly believe that moving home can be a force for good and should be celebrated as an opportunity to embrace positive change. However, rising costs may well prevent people from moving home when they want to.
We believe these high costs can be partially addressed by those who have plans to move sorting their transport and moving equipment with a trusted provider. As a removal company we strive to offer an affordable, accessible service, even when you contact us last minute – and at no extra costs. We believe removal companies should recognise what a stressful as well as productive process that moving can be and should support this with affordability rather than pressure."
