Free Advice On How To Ensure The Best Removal ServicesFree Advice On How To Ensure The Best Removal Services

Over the years, the image of the man and van has somehow been really tarnished by various factors.

This article will instruct you on how to make sure you get the right man for the move and also how to ensure the move get conducted in a happy atmosphere.

House removals can be very stressful, not only for the person having to move their belongings over to their new address but also for the removal service team coming to help move the belongings over.

Both parties have to contribute and work as a team to ensure things get done swiftly. That will make the move a lot less stressful not only for the one moving but also for the man and van.

The first that is rather important is to tackle all that is to do with parking. Parking is a very important issue for every man and van.

As a removal company pulls over at the customer's address, the first that raises an eyebrow is the parking distance between the van and the pickup door.

Parking issue has to be addressed when booking your van. You should mention everything you think will be of importance such as the fact that there are additional set of stairs outside the building. In case your door number is on a main road, it would be a good thing to tell the removal services crew as it will enable them to plan their journey accordingly. Also feel free to give indication such as door color or gate shape because although they might rely on GPS Satellite navigation, the information you get from them is not always precise.

You could find yourself with a fine or penalty from a removal company if they realise the wrong amount of people were sent on the job based on the information you provided. Removal services in London is the most common form of domestic removals used in town. You should also try to be considerate when booking for one person only as some man and van could decide to not move your belongings if they feel you have not booked the right manpower.

Try to put yourself in their shoes. Because of the affordable price charged for house moves, the only way a removal company can make ends meet is by conducting about 3 to 4 moves a day. Doing a job that required more manpower does not only makes the person doing it more tired but also does not enables him to carry out other jobs and meet other engagements.

People should separate themselves from the thoughts that booking for a man and a van instead of two will make them save any money.

Basing yourself on the assumption that a job that would normally that a man three hours will only take two men one hour.

Considering the way most man and van in London charge, it will cost customers around £90 for one man but only £80 for two men.

That is a very outcome for both parties as the removal company could get done with the job quickly, keep the customer happy but also organise their day more efficiently.

So how do you know whether to book for one man or more?

Primarily look at your belongings in your closet, kitchen draws, storage and build a picture. Moving a room is not much of a problem for one man but when it get to moving a whole flat even without furniture remains tricky for one man and van. Although you moved into the flat without much furniture or belongings for that matter, just think of all the unnecessary stuff you have accumulated over the months or years. Furnitures are not the only worry, account for all the bags and boxes that emerge from your house.

Another clue that could give an idea on whether you need a man and van or two is the amount of levels in your property or the floor your flat is located on. Whether there is a lift or not, think of the amount of trips the man and van will have to go through, back and forth to get all your bags and boxes down to the van.

Moving house could be very stressful so it is very important to ensure it is conducted in the most stress free manner. Always bear in mind that you are not always saving money by going for the cheapest option when booking for one man and van only. Make sure parking is arranged and appropriate restrictions have been arranged at your local council.
