Your Perfect Man with a Van Plan
In today’s modern and hectic lifestyles, the daunting prospect of relocation can add more than its fair share of additional stress. Whether you’re a home owner or a student in rented accommodation, moving furniture such as that prized flat screen TV or large comfortable three piece sofa can often prove a challenging task.
Enter ‘Man with a Van’. However with so many of them around these days, just where can you find the very best of the rest?
You may not be surprised to know that in today’s connected environment, the internet is always a good place to start (I mean hey your online reading this right now anyway!). Regardless of your preferred choice of search engine, the internet is ideal for not only seeking out some of the more reputable Man with a Van companies, but also those closest to your present location. You may decide to try the ‘old fashioned approach’ and ask a friend or family member – who hasn’t used this type of service at some point? It is however important not to rush these things and furthermore, not to simply choose the cheapest small removals service. Sometimes a great deal isn’t necessarily a ‘great deal’ so it is important to ensure that you spend a little time researching whether or not your Man with a Van is legally qualified to do the service they have set out to do. Accidents can happen, so make sure your possessions are insured during the time they are in transit too.
Once you’re happy with your choice and have arranged the necessary collection time, it is important that you sort furnishings and boxes before the removal company arrive. Remember, many work by the hour so if you are a well organised individual (and even willing to muck in with the heavy lifting), you will get more for your money with careful planning.
You may also wish to consider having a clear out of all those things you don’t use anymore, which have been filling up your cupboards for years (remember the lighter you can travel the better). Once you are happy with what you are taking to your new home, it is probably a good idea to carefully mark all those packedboxes (especially fragile ones) with their contents and where you wish them to be unpacked. For example you may want all the kitchen things unpacked first so you can get the kettle on and pour a nice cuppa tea for you and your hardworking removal team!
So there you have it, a simple bit of research, careful planning, and a methodical approach means that moving house need not be such the stressful event in one’s life that it is often made out to be. Relocation is often the next positive step in a person’s life and opening the door to your new family home for the very first time should be a moment cherished, not dreaded.…
