In this page I will explain the difference between a professional moving service vs your day to day man and van and why you should always use a removal company even if you require a man and van service most removal companies will offer one.
One of the main differences between a man and van and a professional removal company is that they accommodate moves of different sizes. Removal companies have much bigger teams and larger vehicles to cater to all aspects of the move. They also provide additional services, such as professional packing and dismantling/reassembling furniture, to make the move a smooth and trouble-free as possible. By investing in a professional removals company, you can rest assured knowing that employees will be highly trained and experienced in all areas of home removals, ensuring even your most fragile items will be handled with care.
In the UK currently, when you sell your property, on the day of the sale completion, your solicitor should advise you that your old property will need to be completely emptied of your possessions by around lunchtime on the day. Failing to do so causes havoc with house chains and other removers and vendors alike within the chain itself. So ask yourself, is that something that a man with a van can realistically achieve, or should you be getting in a professional removal company with the correct manpower, equipment, size of van, and experience for the job? If you do not meet your obligations regarding the sale completion, you are liable to be charged by your buyers for any additional expenses they incur from their removers, due to your failure to have your old house emptied by the agreed time.
True to its name, a man and van is essentially composed of one man (sometimes two if requested) and a van. A man and van service provides point-to-point transportation services for a low cost. Such services can be good if supplied by a professional Removals Company
1. House furniture
2. Small office furniture
3. Student removals
4. Large item delivery services
5. Parcel deliveries
6. Furniture deliveries
7. Single item collection services
8. Self-storage move-ins maybe multiple trips
9. Waste collection and disposal
Please do bare in mind a removal company provide protection most man and van services dont.
On the other hand, a removals company provides relocation services to those who are moving houses or moving offices. Aside from the transportation of your belongings, especially bulky furniture items and large appliances, you may also ask a removals company to provide you with services that can make moving easy and hassle-free. Apart from Full house moves here are some of the other services that a removals company typically offers;
A removal company can provide you with an all-inclusive moving service, which means they will handle all the hard work and heavy lifting required for your move. This is the best option possible, especially when you are busy with school, work, or the other administrative aspects of your move.
The best thing to do when deciding between the two options is to make your choice carefully, consider both options and the services you require for your house move and do your research by speaking with the companies and asking how they will facilitate your move. A property survey is not out of the question either, see if they will come out and view your property and your possessions before the moving day, make an inventory of your furniture and discuss the move in more detail with you so there are no crossed wires on the day of your move.
