Man and van companies can be one-man businesses, a family run delivery firm or part of a larger removals company. The key to this service is that you're hiring the van along with the man who'll drive it, load it and unload it, taking all the stress out of your move.
The vans are usually Luton-style with high ceilings, which makes it easier for loading and arranging your boxes and furniture inside, as you can stand up. Some man & van companies hire out vans with a tail lift, to make loading bulky items such as washing machines and sofas even easier.
If you're moving house and are looking for help, this type of service is often the cheapest way to get the job done and certainly the most reliable. By using deliveryquotecompare.com, it's easy to find a reliable driver who's willing to carry out the move for less. Simply enter the details of the job and we match you to man & van services who can help and send you no-obligation quotes for free.
Then you can browse your quotes, check the company profile page and see what customer feedback they've got, so you can make an informed decision on which man and van to use. Once you've accepted a price, you'll communicate directly with the company to arrange the work.
Don't forget when you're giving the details of the job, have a think about what help you may need for the move ahead. Do you need help with packing? Do you need a hand with disassembling furniture? Would you like assistance unpacking at the other end? All these types of help are available from man and van services, but of course the cost will depend on how much help you want.
Many of us have thought that hiring a van and persuading mates to help us out with the lifting and shifting is the cheapest way to move. But believe us, the cost of the van hire, fuel and the risk of paying a huge damage excess if you have an accident because you're not used to driving a van, easily outweighs the cost of hiring a man and van.
These services are used to handling goods and furniture every day and will be far quicker at loading and unloading than you and your friends. They are also insured for carrying your goods and are used to being behind the wheel of a van.
Organising a move yourself can be stressful, time consuming and costly. Professional man and van hire services are experts at moving and will be whizzing up and down your stairs with that huge comfy settee and all your boxes without even breaking into a sweat.
If you want the cheapest quote possible, think about arranging your moving day during the week. Weekends are always busier for men with vans for hire, so if you can choose a weekday, when they are less busy your quote will be lower than the weekend rate.
Before you enter the details to get your free man and van quotes, make sure you have a look around to see how much you need to move. Try and note a realistic number of boxes and volume of furniture - don't forget any stuff in the loft, garden bits and pieces in the shed and those bikes in the garage!
Over-estimating may mean you hire a man with a van that's too big and underestimating could mean you can't squeeze everything in. Getting it more or less right means you will be paying the best possible price for the amount you need moving.
