When you are doing a smaller move in south London, you may well find that the best way of getting things transported is to hire a Man and van Clapham. You will hopefully find a hundred different man and van companies in the area, which will give you a great chance to look through them and find the perfect service for you. Using a man and van service is a lot more beneficial if you have the job small enough to be able to use one, and this article focuses on the qualities and potential problems associated with man and van rental in Clapham..

First of, the pro side of the man and van industry. For a start, you will find that you do not need to be nearly as organized with a man and van rental than a full scale removals service SW4, which will require a lot of planning to get right. With a removals company Clapham, you will find that you need to book well in advance in order to insure that your dates are available, and you will have a fair amount of work to do to find the right company. With a man and van service however, you can book a lot later, as there will be less competition with others, simply due to the number of man and van services that there are around. Also, man and van services don’t vary in quality that widely between them, so you should be able to find a suitable replacement, if the one that you wanted gets booked up on your dates. The best thing for most people using a van man, is the price. A man and van service will be a lot cheaper than a full size removals service, and this will be because you have to do a lot more work yourself. On a full scale removal, you will have a few men working on the job, as well as a larger van, or perhaps lorry, all of which can be rather expensive. A man and van service will literally be a man and a van, unless you book a specialized service. This means that you will be doing a lot of lifting and shifting, so it can be a good idea to get some friends involved to help with the larger items, but make sure that you look over the appropriate safety instructions for lifting properly, as otherwise things can become painful! The injuries associated with lifting heavy furniture will often involve back, neck and knee pain, all of which are delicate areas, where injuries can last a long time, and cause you trouble a long way into your life.

There are other issues with SW4 man and van services, most of which are associated with running in to issues that you had not banked on. If you are looking to pay by the hour, which is usually the cheapest option, then you may well find that you run in to traffic, or have to do more than one run, which will drive the price up considerably. One way to combat this is to use a company who charge by giving you a set fee for the whole job, but this will usually be more expensive than the likely price of the hourly rate job. It does however give you a fair bit more security against the cost getting out of hand. Some drivers will however attempt to up their price at the end of the job, based on unseen issues, so make sure that you confirm that the price if fixed beforehand!
