Moving Within London? Hire a Man and Van Service

If you don't already know, Man and Van services are what they say they are – men, or women, with a van. They are primarily hired to assist with transporting your goods when moving homes. In recent years the Man and his Van services have increased in popularity as they provide customers with a cheap, reliable alternative to having hire a removal company or hiring a vehicle to drive yourself, which, on average, are far more expensive. Man and Van services charge around £15 an hour, maybe more, maybe less. But they are certainly cheaper than removal companies that charge anywhere up to £100 a day for a move. Man and his Van services may be a viable option for you if you a moving within London. There are multiple professional, reliable companies awaiting your business. As such, if you shop around online you'll find many Man and Van services often have special offers on, such as a percentage off the hourly fee. As we all know, London is a nightmare to drive through; it's complicated, confusing, illogical, intimidating, and expensive. Hiring a Man and his Van service means you will not have to deal with the nightmare of driving all of your belongings through it. Imagine, for example, if you were planning to move from Wimbledon in South West London, to Highgate in North London; moving enough is stressful, the last thing you want to do is stress about following directions when you've already got so much else on your mind. So this is where hiring a Man and his Van service in London is more advantageous than hiring a vehicle to drive your self – the stress of driving through one of the world's busiest cities is passed on to a professional.London is also famous for the amount of people that live there. Over 8 million residents – that's more than the population as Scotland. When fitting that many people into a small amount of space, it means inevitably that the housing is somewhat cramped. And it is no secret that this is true with London. The chances are, if you’re moving into a flat in London, you won't have enough things to fit a 7.5 tonne that most removal companies provide. If all your stuff can fit in a 3.5 tonne van – the van of choice for Man and Van services – then you'll be saving yourself a lot of money by only paying for the transport space you need.  And you get your money's worth with the service. If it only takes you an hour, then you'll only be charged £15 on average. For that you'll get an experience removals expert who pride themselves on their professional service and their customers satisfaction. If they didn't, then they would risk going into the red. To find which company to choose, simply get out your copy of the yellow pages or use the internet. There will be plenty of services and, if you go online, you'll be able to see previous customer reviews, including their satisfaction scores, which will help you make a more informed decision about which company to go with, if you so choose to hire a Man and his Van service. If you have any questions about Man and Van services, or specific questions about specific Man and Van company, then give that company ring and they'll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.Although beware; if you do have a lot of possessions to transport, and it may take more than 3-4 or hours to transport all your needs, then it may be best to hire a removal company. If you require a Man and his Van service for over that amount of time, it is unlikely to be any cheaper than hiring a removal company.
