Boxing Day property searching – is 2023 the year you’ll move?

Dec 24, 2022 | Moving

You may be planning on spending Boxing Day in a food-induced stupor, having overindulged in the turkey and Quality Street.

But it’s certainly not the case that everyone is. Did you know Boxing Day is one of the biggest days of the year for property searches? Perhaps it’s seeing how jam-packed the house is with stuff post-present opening and with visiting family. Perhaps it’s the thought of a new year and what people want to achieve. Maybe it’s having the chance to sit down and relax after a busy run up to the festive period.

Whatever the reason, last year there were 51 million visits to Rightmove between Boxing Day and the first working day of the new year. In fact Boxing Day visits were over 50 per cent higher than the year before.

Is 2023 the year you plan on making a move? If so, McCarthy’s is here to help in all kinds of ways.

Obviously Yorkshire removals are one of the major things we’re known for. We have over 50 years of removals expertise and our friendly teams make it their mission to ensure the process is as simple and stress free as possible for you. We’ll help you get all your belongings safely to your new home, whether it’s across Leeds, across the county, the other side of the UK, or even to a brand new country. Looking for house removal quotes?

We can even help with all your packing if needed. And if you don’t require our packing services, we can still help provide McCarthy’s boxes and other packing materials. Believe us – you don’t want to buy cheap quality boxes when you’re moving. You want to make sure your items are properly packed and secure before they embark on their important journey.

We can also help with storage services, with our storage units, Leeds. If you are looking for self storage while you declutter your house pre-selling, or while you get settled into your new home, we can help with that. We also offer container storage Leeds. That is useful if there’s a period of time between handing over the keys to your old home and getting the keys to your new. We can pack up all your items as we would for any move, but they get loaded into containers on the removal van. We then seal those containers and take them to our secure storage centre to be kept safely until you need them. Once you’re ready we will deliver them back to you and unload them into your new home.

But did you know we also offer shredding services? If you’re looking to have a clear out before you move (let’s face it, we all have more paperwork than we need – and junk mail and other items that might be useful to a fraudster). We can provide you with a sack to be filled with paperwork – return it to us and we will shred it in seconds in our industrial shredder. Much easier than having to use a home shredder, which overheats every two minutes! Looking for shredding services near me?

Whatever your plans for 2023, if you think McCarthy’s might be able to help, feel free to get in touch to chat about your requirements. We’re always happy to answer any questions.

Wishing a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to you all!
