RemovalsMoving home is considered to be one of the most stressful life events. Finding a new home and finalising the sale or rental agreement can be a time consuming process. Even when you’ve completed the deal, there is still the matter of how you are going to get all of your belongings from your current home to your new one. If you’ve looked into removals, you’ll find it can be really expensive. However, there is a cheaper alternative for Enfield residents and it’s commonly known as ‘Man with a Van’.
Understanding Man and Van services
If you don’t have a lot of belongings, Man and Van services can be a cheaper alternative to a removals company. Designed to help with smaller moves, this service is a lot more affordable; making it a great choice for those on a budget. A lot of people mistakenly think that removal companies are more expensive because they are better. This isn’t the case. The main reason removal companies charge higher rates is because they have a lot more overheads than a man with a van.
It isn’t just money you save either (although let’s face it that’s a powerful motivator). You also receive a much more personal service. Larger removal companies don’t always provide a personal touch. When it comes to handling your most treasured possessions, you want to have a peace of mind that they will be handled with care. It’s amazing how much reassurance you receive when hiring a friendly, local Enfield Man and Van service.
Will they be able to handle my move?
One of the main concerns you may have is whether a Man and Van service is going to be sufficient enough to move all of your belongings. On average, a 2-man, man and van team can handle a three to four bedroom house move. They can often do all of this in a maximum of 4 hours. Depending upon the company you choose, it takes around 2 hours to clear out the home and then 1 ½ hours to unload everything in your new home.
Enjoy a fast, efficient service
When you hire Enfield Man and Van services, you’re also guaranteed to receive a fast, efficient move. This is especially true if you are the first job of the day. The men will be keen to get started on their other jobs so there won’t be any slacking off. They also tend to be a lot more passionate about the job.
Is it right for me?
Removals services are targeted towards big households – typically families with children and lots of big and heavy belongings like furniture and appliances. If this is you, you probably need a lot of cargo space – maybe even a lorry and definitely some strong hands to handle the couch, refrigerator and other big and heavy items you might have.
On the other hand single tenants or young couple with only personal belongings might find more sense to use a man and van service. Usually, they will have a couple of bags or suitcases with clothes and some personal items, small appliances like a toaster and maybe a TV or a computer. In those cases, to hire a removal service with a large transit van and couple of men would be a huge overkill. A small van with a driver would be an equally efficient solution, while not breaking the bank.
If you are moving from a five to six bedroom property, you will likely need a removals company that can handle large jobs. The vans in a man and van service are a lot smaller so they are designed with smaller moves in mind. One advantage of this is they will easily be able to navigate around smaller roads.
Overall an Enfield Man and Van service can save you time, money and a lot of stress. Don’t make your move harder than it needs to be; find out whether a man and van could be the right choice for your move.
