How much does it cost to move to Bristol from London?
In general, moving from London to Bristol will cost you anywhere from £1000 to £3000. However, what you pay will depend on a range of factors. This includes how much help you need from our team. For example, if you opt for packing and assembly too, this will make the service more expensive. Many people still find the investment is worth it as it means the move is a much smoother process.
Furthermore, moving out of a one-bedroom flat will cost less than moving out of a four-bedroom house. With the latter, you’re likely to have more furniture and belongings that need loading and transporting. Accessibility can also play a factor in the cost of your move – if we’re bringing furniture down multiple flights of stairs, the process is naturally going to take longer.
If you’re looking for a more accurate quote, the best thing to do is get in touch with a member of our team. This way, we can take into account your specific needs and come up with a suitable estimation. To help us with this, it’s worthwhile having some information to hand before you call us, including the items that need to be moved and a rough idea of how many boxes you think this will require.
How long would it take to pack and deliver goods in Bristol?
There is a range of variables that will determine how long it will take to pack and deliver your items from London to Bristol. Some of these include the size and weight of your belongings and how many items you have to be transported, as well as the type of properties that you are moving in and out of. This can make a big difference since there may be issues around accessibility, including stairs or the distance from the roadside if there’s no driveway to park on. As well as this, we need to factor in parking to make sure we can provide an accurate quote.
Other factors that may impact how long a move takes include:
- Packing. If you would like Blue Sky to pack up your items for you, then you can expect this stage to take two or three hours; of course, this also depends on the number of items you need to pack up. To complete this stage yourself, you may wish to give yourself a few days (or maybe a couple of weeks) to make sure everything is ready for when our team arrives.
- Disassembly. If you have bulky or large furniture that you would like to be dismantled for the move, we can do this for you. We will be sure to carefully take your items apart and put them back together at your new home so that everything is ready for you. This will add around an hour to the total time.
- Loading. Depending on how many items you are moving, you can expect it to take around one to two hours for us to load all of your things into our van.
- Transportation. On a good day, it takes around 2.5 hours to travel from London to Bristol. This time could be longer if there is any traffic or if the properties at either end are difficult to access.
- Unloading. Once we arrive at your new home, unloading and moving all of your items into the property will take anywhere from one to two hours. Again, this varies depending on how many items you have to move and how easily we can access the house or flat.
If you opt for the basic service of loading, transportation and unloading, you can expect a total moving time of around 6 hours. However, this may take longer if there are any added complications or if it’s a larger move. For extra services like packing and assembly, you can expect a few more hours to be added to this total.
A few interesting facts about Bristol
Before moving to a new place, it’s important that you do some research about the area you will be calling home. Bristol is a popular city located in the southwest of England and is known for its prosperous maritime history. It’s home to a thriving cultural hub in an area that was previously a city centre port. Now, you can enjoy restaurants, shops and cultural institutions where the 19th-century warehouses once stood.
Bristol is known for its diverse activities, including art, museums and music. Its economy is largely centred around the creative media, electronics, technology and aerospace industries. The city has a population of around 467,099 and was recently voted one of the best places to live in the UK. It was also the first cycling city in the country and is widely considered an enjoyable place to live.
Whether you’re looking for a busy social scene or you want to enjoy the freedom that country life offers, Bristol is the perfect place to enjoy both. You are never far from green spaces here since it’s the only European Green Capital in the UK, but you can also enjoy the perks of city life.
Bristol also boasts great economic and educational benefits. It’s home to students from over 130 countries and a range of great start-ups, which help to foster creativity and excellence.
Cost of living comparison between London and Bristol
London is one of the most expensive places to live in the UK in terms of rent and mortgage payments, transport, food and entertainment, amongst other factors. As such, when you move to Bristol, you will likely notice a significant decrease in expenditures across these areas.
In fact, you can expect to see a 34% decrease in living costs when you move to Bristol. London is ranked the 85th most expensive city in the world, while Bristol comes in at 2075th, so you stand to make a lot of savings here without having to alter your lifestyle all that much.
Some of the biggest differences in terms of cost, according to Numbeo, show that:

However, it’s also worth bearing in mind that your salary will most likely be lower in Bristol than it is in London (the average monthly net salary in Bristol is 20.3% lower than in the capital). Of course, you’ll need to do your research and weigh up whether you’ll be better off by making the move.
