Man and van vs removals

There is an ongoing debate as to whether it’s better to use van hire or a removal company for a move. This guide will offer some advice regarding the advantages and disadvantages of both of these services.

1) Pricing and services
The services that a man and a van provide tend to be cheaper than a remover service. Most van hire services will have competitive prices as there’s stiff competition in their industry. Their services, however, are limited as they usually can only offer removal and on occasion, packing.

Most removal companies will have a higher price for their services. However, they do offer a greater variety of services compared to a man and van Soho. Their range of services would include packing, storage and in some cases, relocate services.

2) Flexibility and size of the business
Some van hire companies are available for hire on the day before a move. The biggest problem with these types of services is the size. Van hire companies tend to be smaller in size and frequently, they will either be a one man show or have a small amount of staff. With many removal companies, you will need to book early, at least one week in advance to be guaranteed a service on the day of the move. However, they will have bigger resources so they’ll employ a sizeable amount of staff that can deal with the move, along with the customer care. This is the biggest difference between the two types of businesses.

3) Scale of the move and the size of the van
Another big difference between the two is the scale of the move along with the size of the van. Most man in a van companies are […]

How to Organize Your House Removal

And it is not the fact of moving your home alone that causes it, it is the sheer amount of work and effort it requires to plan, organize and pack everything from one place and have it moved to another. Keeping a cool head and a good vision of what needs to happen can prevent a lot of that stress and help speed the moving process. It is important to follow certain steps to ensure a smooth endeavor.

How to Protect Pictures during a Removal

Removal from one house to another can be tough. With so much needing transport and so many things demanding your attention, being able to properly care for all of the individual items is something which you will need to focus on. If you have a number of pictures and pieces of art in your home, then making sure that they reach the new home in one piece is absolutely vital. As some of the most noticeable and personable items in the home, making sure that your pictures arrive in a good condition is a big part of making sure that the removal process goes well.

House removals: Things to Consider With Self-Storage Options

Self-storage offers an alternative way to traditional methods for storing your items when moving house. In the past, traditional storage relied on renting space from removal companies, man and van companies or large storage organisations that came with certain restrictions and rules. This would often leave the customer with limited access to items, lack of flexibility, long-term contracts and high charges.

Self-storage generally overcomes these issues by offering a self-controlled storage solution Richmond that lets customers have their own self-contained, fully enclosed storage unit that gives them full access, lower costs and increased flexibility, as well as control of size of the rented unit. This means that whether you want to store the contents of your entire house or just some items from your garage, you can get the space you need.
Here are some key advantages of self-storage.

Flexibility
Self-storage lets you store pretty much anything you like, which is extremely useful when moving house. It also allows you to rent space in the size that you need and want, accommodating the amount of contents that you have depending on your needs.

Often storage space is only required for a minimum of a few days when moving house so this provides a more flexible solution. Also, you can quickly increase or decrease your storage space if you require.

Cost
The costs of self-storage tend to be cheaper than traditional storage space renting from larger organisations. Access to your items is free of charge and you can gain entry to your belongings when you want, restricted only by opening times of the facility. An enormous advantage […]
