The Average Cost Of Moving House UK

What is the average cost of moving house? The average cost of moving home according to (comparemymove, 2022) is £10,683.99. The average cost of moving home according to (slothmove, 2022) worked out at £12,593. We believe these estimates to be within the ballpark of the total average cost of moving home UK.

These estimates of the average cost of moving house UK consider all the costs involved with buying and selling a house and everything in-between. It is also estimated on average that the total cost of buying a house is around £3,838 and the total cost of selling a house is £8,755 within the UK.

What Are The Costs Of Moving House UK?

Moving home can be more costly than it may seem initially due to the many individual factors and variables that contribute to the overall total moving house cost. Here are some of the key costs of moving house that you need to consider.

  • Price of house you’re buying & selling.
  • How long your house is on the market 
  • Size of your house / number of bedrooms (buying and selling)
  • Distance to move items (miles)
  • Stamp duty, deposits, valuation fees, surveyor’s fees, legal fees, transfer fees, and estate agent fees. 

It is due to these many variables that the cost of moving house can creep up way past your initial expectations. To break down these costs further we can look at some of the average costs involved for buying and selling a property at the average UK house price of £277,000, (slothmove, 2022).

  • Stamp duty: £1,350
  • Property Surveyors: £500
  • Conveyancing (buying): £2,339
  • Valuation Fee: £227
  • Estate Agents: £3,268
  • Conveyancing (selling): £1,690
  • EPC (energy performance certificate): £85

How Much Does It Cost For A Removal Company?

One of the additional costs that can often be forgotten is for a removal company to transport your household items to your new property from your current property. According to (Zoopla, 2022) you are looking at £420 for a 1-bedroom flat to £1,800 for a 4-bedroom house when hiring a removal company.

The average estimated costs for removals by (comparemymove, 2022) came out at £1,181 and the estimated costs for a removal company were £948 by (slothmove, 2022). Due to inflation and the increase in transportation costs such as fuel we can expect that these prices are likely to increase over 2023. 

If you are looking on how to save money when moving house, an alternative option to hiring a removal company is to hire a luton removal van. You can hire a luton removal van for as low as £135 for the day, which will save you from all the removal costs associated with a removal company.

Removal companies will charge you premiums based on the size of your house, number of trips back and forth, total time taken, volume of items, distance travelled, ease of access, packaging of items and special care costs that can be mandatory. Therefore, it can add up to around £800 for a 3-bedroom house when only moving 15 miles.
