Making The Choice Between Vehicle Hire And A Man With A Van

Amongst the blurry mess of agency fees, stamp duty and mortgage arrangements, let’s try to make one thing clear. The distinction between removal vehicle hire and hiring a man with van. There are obvious differences between the two and they are both best suited to their own niche. But which is the best choice for you? When you are moving house you are likely to be worried about the weight and volume of the items themselves. Items such as dining tables, sofa suites and bookcases are often not able to be carried by one person alone, although a normal sized commercial standard van is not likely to be big enough to manage it all in one trip. Which is the optimal selection, and for which circumstance?The best way to decide is to think whether you need help moving the items or not. If you haven’t got a friend to help you lift the items, it might be a good choice to hire a man with a van and a helper too. If it is just a small removal which is reasonably lightweight you shouldn’t have a problem doing it by yourself. Of course, the whole matter could be sped up by hiring a man with a van for help, but it might not be all that necessary, especially if the expense would be too high. That said, calling for a removal quote to a whole range of companies you can find different prices for both moving truck rental and man and a van hire.Moving companies often offer a range of services, with discounts included if you use a package of them. This is why it is an excellent idea to speak to the customer services department and see if you can get a better deal by using one moving company for everything, such as the packing service and cardboard boxes, the self storage unit and the moving vehicle hire. This is a smart tactic because keeping everything with one firm is likely to be easier for you and get you a nice bit of money off while you’re at it. It all comes down, in the end, as to whether you can drive and pack/unpack unassisted. Moving van hire would be a great option for you if you can, and it would make relocation decidedly cheaper and easier. If you’d rather move with a bit of assistance, man and van hire would definitely be worth the extra cost since it simplifies the process which could end up as overwhelming and stressful on a day which is not intrinsically free of stress as it is. The best course of action is to call up cheap removal companies in the area you would like to move from and to get a range of quotes, using this first one as a baseline. Once you find something that beats the average rate, you are sure to be getting a good deal.
