Compare And Contrast: Which Removal Van Hire Is For You?

There is a huge range of services available to help you move house or office with ease. Even if you're opting for van hire, there's a great range of different types of vehicle that's bound to cater for your needs. But which one is for you? Everyone is different and so your needs will vary, your time scale will vary and so will your budget. Here's a few ideas to help you think about what services may work for you.Moving HouseIf you're moving house, we'll assume you are a couple, family or any kind of group of two or more with more than one bedroom and a variety of other rooms just to give an idea of scale. If you're handling more rooms with more people, forward planning is essential and appointing someone to be in charge of the moving process will help make things smoother in the long run. Go through the house, have a look at what's staying, what's getting thrown away and what's coming with you. Be clear, especially over large pieces of furniture. Now that you have an idea of what you're taking, you need to think about the size of moving vehicle you'll need.

It's a bad idea to use your own car, as these vehicles are not designed to take a great deal of weight. Removal firms have a wide range of services that include van hire. You can either hire a moving van yourself or use a man and van service. Either way, you'll need to book a certain size of van. They range from compact vans (the size of a car but with ample storage space) to Long Wheel Base vans which are much longer and higher and fit in a great deal of items. Most hire companies also have trucks too for large amounts of heavy items.

Once you have an idea of what you're bringing, write a list and talk to your local moving company. They are experts and will be able to advise you on which size of moving van to use.Moving FlatWhat makes this a different experience to a house is that there may be fewer items to move but you may have more stairs and corridors to navigate when moving your items out to the removal van. Look at your furniture and then exam the physical route these items will need to take in order to leave the house. Do you need help? How many people will you need to carry certain items? Many removal firms provide a great man and van hire service. This service involves a one, two or even three staff members bringing a van or truck to your door. They will then help you load and then drive the van to the new location. They'll help unload and then take the moving van back to base. What's great about this kind of service is that you won't be alone in navigating those windy stairs, and what's more is that the removal team will most likely be experts at it!Student MovingThis man and van service is also a great idea for students. This service often includes smaller vehicles like compact vans and small removal vans, so your items won't be banging around the inside of a van that's far too big. As a student, you'll also often be in a strange city and you may not be able to drive either. A man and van will take care of the driving and give expert advice on how to pack for the move if you've never had to do it before. There's also some great deals out there, so you won't have to fret about breaking the bank!
