Man and Van Hire - All You Need to Know!
Help from man and van hire companies and small independent local home removal businesses can be a cheap and easy alternative to van rental. In most cases, these small one man companies offer a convenient "van with driver" service where you not only get the van, but also help carrying and loading your items. Or, in some instances, you can opt for a non-working man with van for those self movers who are willing to do all the labour themselves.
Some man with a van hire businesses can also provide extra help for moving heavy items. You may well benefit from their experience and manual handling techniques which can make moving day run much smoother.
Many man and van businesses also offer specialist moving and delivery services such as heavy freight, pianos and even undertaking larger home removals.
