Ever thought of moving and don’t know how or where to start? Do you have commercial properties and you do not have any idea on how to move them to a different location? Do you know that you can move your properties, belongings and stuff with ease through the help of a moving van in London? Well, yes, you can.
Whether your movement is into a new neighbourhood or home, or you are transporting properties or large stuff to a different location, you can get all the help you need by hiring a man with a van service. There are several man and van establishments all over London – the key is finding a good one. Below is a breakdown of how to find a good man a van service near you wherever you are and ensure a stress-free movement.
The importance of finding a good man and van service cannot be overemphasised. This is because when you do get a good one, you will find the whole experience of moving less stressful and tiring. However, we must first know what the service is all about.
In basic terms, a man and van service is in charge of moving things, properties and whatnot from one point to another. It could be private properties or commercial/industrial properties. Know that, with several moving companies, some of them are concerned with local movement and movements within or barely outside the vicinity of an area, while some others handle international movement. Depending on your budget, you can get in touch with either the small scale man and van service that charge cheaper rates and can even be connected on short notice, or you seek out the large scale but more expensive moving services with a fleet of vans.
The best place to begin when looking for a man and service near you is online. You would most likely be provided with a whole range of options, but that’s a good start. An even better option is asking around. Your friends, family and even neighbours can be very helpful in providing you with details of a man and van service they have worked with before.
The advantage of this is the fact that they would recommend them to you based on the experience they have working with them. Once you get the contact or details you need, give them a call and possibly book an appointment.
Usually, most man and van service charge by the hour. However, this is dependent on your precise need and what you want them doing for you. If you want their services only to involve moving things from one point to another, then you can agree on the price based on the hour. You must be careful to ask how they charge; some begin their charge the moment they get to your house or the pickup point, while some others start charging as soon as they leave their depot or office. Whatever it is, be sure to find out what it is before getting to an agreement with them.
In some other cases like disposal of waste, the charge of waste disposal will also be included with that of labour, making it significantly higher. This shouldn’t be a cause of alarm for you as waste disposal is not done for free. Before pickup, always agree to avoid issues later on.
As earlier mentioned, the charges and cost of most man and van services are by the hour. This means the longer they spend at the pickup point and drop off, the higher the charge. You can cut cost by ensuring everything is packed and ready to move before they show up. That way, all they need to do is pick up and drop off, saving you enough in terms of time and money.
In the case of waste disposal, breaking down the waste or making it lighter can also help to reduce costs.
Even with the abundance of man and van services everywhere, there are still rogue services that should not be trusted. The problem, however, is spotting them. This should be done even before you embark on hiring their service. Start by checking them out online and finding out if they have the license that qualified them to move properties. Also, check for the insurance, as this should cover them in case there is property damage during the course of transportation.
For waste disposal, you can ask for their waste disposal license number, and check on the Environmental Agency website if they are licensed to move waste. These and more can help you with the assurance that you are dealing with professionals in the field.
In response, yes, there are. There are regular removal companies that can do the work of a man and van service. You might want to be very careful first before you make your selection. Also, if you feel you can do the work yourself, you can hire a van and move your properties or dispose of your waste yourself.
