  • What is Man and Van Services?

    The term Man and Van is a modern term for a low cost removal service, rather than hiring a van yourself, you hire someone that has a van. Rental companies that offer hiring of large vehicles will often charge a premium rate and you will need to have a weekend, or day insurance for driving the vehicle – this bumps the price up and in most cases if not all its actually cheaper to hire someone who owns a van, they should be cheaper and even move and lift the items for you.

    There are far more benefits of hiring a man and van service, such as insurance against breakage of the items, not needing to lift a finger, enjoy the rest of your weekend doing little as possible.

  • Man and Van: Would it be cheaper for myself to hire my own van?

    Well, technically yes but you should take note of a few things before doing so:

    • You will need to load the vehicle and unload vs. us doing all the hard work.
    • You will need to pay the cost of hiring the vehicle and if you want to use it on the weekend then you may need to book it for the whole weekend since most van hire services close at 12 o’clock noon.
    • You will need to pay the cost of fuel, our affordable fixed pricing comes with fuel calculated in (No Hidden Charges).
    • You will need to return the van at some point which means you’re need someone to pick you up or order a taxi adding even more additional costs.
