Advantages of Man with a Van Hire

  • Price: They offer competitive prices on single item transportation, small moves and time sensitive collections such as eBay purchases too large for couriers. Good man and van companies transport items that are too cumbersome or delicate to courier, and at much cheaper rates than larger removals companies can do because they have to pay for premises and most don't have to charge VAT
  • More Convenient: It's a method of transportation that fits in with YOUR plans and times., working after hours and late nights, and weekends too.
  • Better than Van Rental:  DIY movers would otherwise have the hassle of renting a van. 
  • Help You Carry and Load: Most of the larger companies also offer 2, 3 or 4 extra men on more challenging removal jobs such as lifting and transporting pianos, heavy appliances and machinery.
