If you need to move a small office or a few home items, it would be a waste of good money hiring a moving truck. Your personal car wouldn’t handle the load either. That leaves you with the option of a man and van service. This kind of service gets you a van and a pair of extra hands. A man and van service has a few benefits:
If you hire a van on self-drive, you will need to fill out paperwork and probably make an insurance commitment. You will also have to do basic maintenance routine like fuelling up and pumping. If you are on a tight schedule, this could be a bit overwhelming. Hiring a man and van service allows you to move without hassle.
Extra pair of hands
If you have to move a sofa, you will need an extra pair of hands to help you with the heavy lifting. You need help if you have to move such an item up or down a flight of stairs. Engaging a man and van service gets you an extra pair of hands to help you with all that.
Arranging for a man and van service can be easily done online or over the phone. This would be ideal if you own an online store that has a few sales for example dealing with house furniture, where you are selling once in a while. This works out very well if you have to make deliveries to the other end of town.
A man and van service will cost as low as £20. Typically, man and van services charge half what a removals truck would charge. This is very advantageous if you are running a start-up business or moving a few items.
If you are making deliveries to an area that you are not familiar with, you could get lost or make a late delivery as you are not conversant with the routes. Engaging a man and van service will ensure faster delivery as the driver knows the perfect routes.
A man and van service is more appropriate than a removals truck if you are moving a few office items or a small house. You can conveniently carry all the items you need to move in one go, and less pay than what would have cost for a removals truck. A man and van service will also fit in the standard home parking lot which is more convenient when loading and unloading your items.
