Man & Van the Best Option for Central London Moves

Interior Designers

If you’re moving from one part of London to another, it’s important to make sure you book the right removals service. A lot of companies will suggest using a large vehicle to complete the move in one go. This can sometimes be cost-effective and seems quicker. However, sometimes it’s more expensive as you’re hiring the vehicle, sometimes for an entire day.

There’s no getting away from it – London is terrible for congestion and traffic. That’s why so many people use the Tube to get around. If you’re relocating from South Kensington to Putney, you can sometimes get caught in rush-hour traffic. This is especially true if you’re in a large vehicle. That’s why it sometimes pays off to relocate in a small van.

Man & Van is Suited to London – 

When London is at its busiest everything comes to a stand-still. Imagine trying to navigate a large removals vehicle through the city-centre in the middle of the day? That’s what a lot of removals companies do. They load everything onto a Luton van or lorry and then try to tackle London’s congestion. This inevitably leads to delays and can cause issues if the removals job is urgent.

Man & Van services are far more suitable for moving in and around London. Not only is it quicker to load a smaller vehicle, but it’s also more comfortable to drive them during peak hours. Not just that, they’re far less intrusive when loading and offloading. A lot of London’s streets are narrow and have a lot of parked cars. If a large removals vehicle crams itself in while you’re loading to leave, you might have a street full of angry residents. A Man & Van vehicle can park up like a regular car, and it won’t cause more congestion, which should hopefully keep the neighbours happy.

Value for Money with Man & Van – 

One of the misconceptions of renting or using a larger removals vehicle is that it’s better value for money. This isn’t always the case, and it’s essential to lay the costs out entirely before you rent a van or book a removal. A lot of removals companies add things like fuel surcharge, and they cost per cubic feet used in their vehicle. That means you can put all your possessions into one large removals vehicle, but you’re paying used, which isn’t necessarily going to save money.

The fuel surcharge can work against you for larger vehicles because they use more petrol. Add London’s congestion, and you are looking at higher costs than using a smaller vehicle.

The best way to get value for money is to work out what your exact needs are. If you are moving from an apartment to your first home, it’s unlikely that you’ll need a large removals vehicle. You can probably get away with using a smaller vehicle. Even if you have a lot of possessions, it can sometimes be better to make several trips to a smaller vehicle. If you have the time and possibly a few people to help you, it’s possible to do the move yourself. However, that means you’ll be taking time off work or during a weekend to do it, and you can only hire a vehicle by the day.
