What to expect from your man and van hire experience
We are all about making your man and van hire in London a lot easier. You can opt for a video survey, which is a video call with one of the operators. All you need to do is to show him the furniture, appliances, or any other things that you need to move. This way, we will easily understand your requirements and customise your service accordingly, plus we’ll be able to give you a more precise quote for the job.
Meet the men and van
On the day of your move, we’ll send men and a van to complete the job. Simply meet them and grant them access to the things you want to relocate.
Loading your things
Be it furniture, appliances, some sort of equipment, musical instruments, works of art, or just a few boxes with items, rest assured the movers will carefully handle your belongings. They will load everything in the van and ensure a safe journey.
Relax and enjoy
Once everything is packed, safely loaded and secured, your belongings are ready for the move! You can go about your day while the movers take your things to the next address. Just make sure somebody will be there to provide access to the property.
We pride ourselves with providing every service that a relocating person or business might need while dealing with this task. See our relocation services, we might be able to remove another problem from your shoulders.
Man and Van vs. Home Removals - What's the difference?
Man and Van
A man and van service is the perfect solution when you need to move a single bulky item or just a few things such as some furniture or maybe a couple of appliances.
Let’s say you’d like to give your old fridge (that is still perfectly functional) to somebody else and get a new one for your place. Then simply arrange a man and van service and your friend will have the fridge delivered to them by us. This service will quickly take care of old sofa removals, large appliances and other items you want to remove from your property.
On the other hand, if you are moving an entire home or office, then what you need is professional removals service.
This is a more extensive service that might require more manpower, a bigger van (or maybe two), and it should be carefully planned out. Also, since a move out is taking place, keep in mind that Fantastic Services can provide you with guaranteed еnd of tenancy cleaning to get your deposit back. And if you decide to combine your removals with another service from our portfolio then you must check out our Fantastic Club membership programme. By joining it you can receive up to 20% off on all services which will make your moving in/out experience much better.
Other services to make your move a lot easier
Packing materials such as cardboard boxes of various sizes, bubble wrap for fragile items, and plastic covers for delicate surfaces and upholstery are available upon request. You can easily fit in your clothes and other items in the boxes and protect your fragile belongings from cracks and scratches.
On the other hand, if you can’t handle it yourself, the movers can do the packing for you. They can bring all the necessary packing materials to your place, then carefully box and wrap whatever it is that you are moving. You can provide your own packing materials if you prefer that option.
What happens if you are moving out but you have no place to move into just yet? That’s something we’ve thought about as well. We can take your movables to a secure storage facility where your belongings can stay for as long as necessary. The storage containers are tidy and the facility is guarded. When you are ready to move in, we will arrange the delivery of your things.
Furniture Collection & Assembly
You’ll find the movers are actually quite handy when it comes to furniture disassembly and assembly. They bring their own tools and they can disassemble some of your chattels to make the move easier. On the other hand, if you’d like some flat packs delivered to you and assembled, that’s something we can take care of as well. Simply send us your shopping list and we’ll take care of the rest.
Request a Video Survey
If you have no idea how to approach your move, then simply arrange a video survey and talk to one of our operators. They will provide you with all necessary information and customise your move according to your specific needs. All you need to do is to turn on the camera of your mobile phone, tablet, or any other device you have available and show them the things you want to move. This way, the movers will have a clear idea of what to expect when they arrive at your place to load the van. And the best part is that you will receive a more precise quote for your service and you’ll be able to plan your budget better.
Note: Based on the size of your move or the specifics of your item, our expert customer support will advise you to schedule a video survey if needed.
