When moving home, you have a few options available to you. You can either take care of everything yourself; hire a van, pack and load everything up yourself, and drive the journey as an individual. Or you can hire a moving company to take care of everything for you. While it is possible to conduct an entire move with just you and your family, I would definitely advise against it. Think about it – a move is a lot of work, you have to plan your finances, refurnish a new house and get used to your new area … And so much more. You don’t want to have to put lots of heavy lifting on top of that. I would definitely leave the actual moving to the moving specialists.

Which moving specialists do I mean? Well, when it comes to a standard family home removal, you basically have the choice between a man and van mover and a professional removal company. They both do the same kind of job on the surface; they will provide a well maintained van, a group of well trained, courteous and helpful staff and a fully featured moving service. This fully featured moving service will ensure that your belongings will all reach your new home in one piece, and in a timely manner.

The differences start to appear when you look past the surface, however. A professional mover is a lot more expensive, and to be honest doesn’t provide that much more. For a dramatic increase in price, you gain access to a larger pool of staff, and some services come as standard, like packing and insurance cover. As long as you’re conducting a small to medium sized move (up to four bedrooms, I’d say) the amount you save on a man and van company will leave you with more than enough cash to take out all the insurance cover you need, and most man and van companies will offer a packing service for a slight premium.

The only real disadvantage you’ll face when hiring a man and van mover is that your move might take a little longer. When you’ve got a smaller team of staff than your average professional mover, this has to be expected. The amount you’ll save on your move though should make this downside all but irrelevant, though. Because as I mentioned earlier, you’ll still be able to take advantage of all of the other good points. Less hard work, more piece of mind, and all the rest of it. You can just add a large monetary saving to that list.

So, if you’re planning on moving home, as long as you’re not moving your mansion down the road, you’ll certainly benefit from a man and van removal service. All you’ll have to do now is hire one.

All you’ll have to do is do a little research. Look around the web, see how many man and van companies there are in your area, and see which one’s right for you. Look up reviews, and pay close attention to any criticisms that past customers have had. As long as you avoid companies with reviews that are headlined as; ‘bad customer service’ and ‘sloppy workmanship’ and so on, you too will be able to experience first hand what a good man and van company can do for your move.
