Why Using a Man and Van Might be Right for You

There are many different services a removals company can offer, but we don’t always need to use a large company that comes with a large price tag. This is why there are many companies who offer a self service, or man and lorry/van.

If you happen to be someone who is moving, and you have a tight budget, this type of service could be perfect for you because it’s much cheaper than many others so it will help to keep your moving costs down. However, don’t think that just because you’re using a self service you will not receive good level of customer satisfaction.

When you choose a service like this, the only thing you will need to check is that the driver who comes with the lorry or van is trustworthy, and holds the correct license so they can drive the vehicle they have.

Of course, insurance is something-else you should think about because there may be times when items can get damaged or lost, so you should check what’s covered before you decide to use a company like this.

Whilst it’s always a good idea to have a list of the goods you’re moving, you won’t have to supply this to your chosen company. All they will need is the volume of your belongings so they can allocate you enough space.

A self service removal actually means that you’re just renting space on a van, and are provided with a driver, everything-else is up to you. So you have to remember that all the packing, loading, and unpacking will be your responsibility.

The type of removal a self service is perfect for are those of you who don’t have much to move, and it’s especially useful for students simply because it doesn’t cost very much. In fact, there are companies who offer a service like just for students, and if there is a group of you all moving to the same place it’s possible to rent a man and van, and fill the space with the whole group’s belongings.

This means you can share the cost and it makes it even cheaper. There is much rivalry amongst removal companies, and the “man and vans” of this world but the fact is, they all provide a much needed service for everyone.

If you need to keep the costs down for your removal, and are happy to do the hard-work in terms of packing, loading, unloading, and unpacking, a self service is the perfect answer. If you’re about to undertake a removal like this, feel free to take a look at where you will find plenty of businesses waiting to help you.
