The Essential Reasons Why a Man and Van Service Could be Just What You Need for Your Move

A typical removals service in the United Kingdom consists of a lorry and perhaps a team of workers to make sure that everything is properly loaded and unloaded, and even packed for your move. But while these traditional removals services are often highly recommended, especially if you are moving a four-bedroom home and an entire family, some people don’t need all of that – and this is where a simple man and van service comes in. With a man and van service, you get just what the name implies: a man plus a van, with the man helping you move various goods from your current location to your new location. There are indeed plenty of benefits you can get from a man and van service, and if you are planning a move and feel that you don’t need a traditional removals service, here are the essential reasons why a man and van service could be just what you need.

Decreased costs

If you are moving and you don’t have too many items to move, then a man and van service is for you. Many single individuals, students, small businesses, and other people who don’t have too many belongings choose man and van services over standard removals services for the simple reason that they don’t require a big truck or lorry. By using a man and van service, you can also significantly decrease the cost of your move.

Most man and van services, such as the man with a van Cheltenham service from Advanced Removals & Storage, also charge by the hour, so this gives you greater control over your moving budget. The hourly charge will usually be inclusive, but there are other services which may charge you separate fees for labour and petrol. The choice you make is up to you, but in general, a set price is best. You can make an estimate for the time it takes the man with a van to deliver your goods or items to your new location, and this can help you save significantly on expenses. You can even time your move so that there is less traffic during the day, and time it so you can avoid the rush or peak hours.

When using a man and van service, make sure that all your items are packed as securely as possible; this will save time as well since the man helping you will not have to check the things in the van if he doesn’t hear anything rattling or moving around.

Make sure to find the right service

Of course, it’s in your best interest to find the right service. The service you choose should have a good reputation; if the man and van service has been operating in an area for years, this is often a good sign. But you should also check for the quality of their driving and their driving skills. Keep in mind that they are transporting your belongings, and the safety and security of your belongings are always paramount. This is why it’s better to opt for a man and van service from a professional company rather than someone working on their own, as the professional provider will often have set standards when it comes to the service and will be more likely to follow stricter regulations and rules. It’s also better to find a man and van service with the appropriate level of experience, not only in driving but also in the area, so they know which routes they should take and are more familiar with the roads.
