Man And Van - Safety And Security Tips

When you are considering the factors involved in choosing a man and van service, you will no doubt understand that there will be issues surrounding the welfare of your belongings. When it comes to good customer service, you need to ensure that you are being treated well, but you also need to think about how your items are going to fare during the removal. In many ways, there is a lot to be said for ensuring that you are not at any risk of the loading and driving processes damaging your items, as well as vetting the driver beforehand, so that you are confident going forward that they are a trustworthy individual. Almost all van drivers will be honest workers, but there will be some out there to grab an opportunity to rip people off, or to steal things, and that makes it difficult to go in to such a situation in blind faith. You will find that it is easy to ensure that neither of the above are an issue for you, so have a look over the following ideas on the matter.If you are concerned for the safety of your items in a sense that you don’t want them damaged, then you should think carefully about how you pack them, as well as how they will be stored in the van during the move.

You need to ensure that all boxes are packed in a way that will not leave any room for breakages, and this may well mean wrapping up individual items in newspaper or bubble wrap. If you can, perhaps line the box for delicate bits and pieces in bubble wrap, so that you don’t have to over use the stuff with each item. You will find that bubble wrap can be pretty expensive, and will take up a lot more room in the boxes than newspaper, so limiting its use is pretty important. When putting larger items in the van, be sure that you are getting them locked in place with the use of their own weight.

You will find that the best way to do this is to work from the front of the van backwards, as the force of braking will be higher than that of accelerating on the van load. Once the larger items are in place, then you can fit the boxes in, using the flat sides of the furniture to prevent them sliding around the van. You may well need to put straps in place to completely stop this.When it comes to your own security, there is a lot that you can do by simply sourcing the van service right. If you get a recommendation from a friend, then you know that they have worked with them previously, and that nothing was tried on, so you can go into the situation confidently. You will find that the same cannot really be applied to those that you find online, as anyone can simply put an advert for their services on the internet. You will find that those who put their own faces in their adverts are a lot less likely to be after your belongings, as this would make them traceable on the web! If you are at all worried about the situation, then make sure that you have someone doing the move with you, as having more than one person involved will prevent the driver trying anything. If they are not happy about multiple passengers, then it may be worth finding someone else to do the job!
