How much does a man with a van cost?

Mar 20, 2018

On average it costs about £90 to hire a man with a van. It is important to keep in mind that these costs are based on estimates and can vary based on the number of items you need to move and how far you need to move them. To receive a detailed quote for your move submit a request, and contact a man with a van directly.

Considerations

Completing a move on your own may seem like a plausible idea before you start. Yet, in reality, it can be stressful, overwhelming and more than difficult to coordinate. That’s where a man with a van professional comes in. Working with a man with a van professional will ensure your move flows smoothly from start to finish.

When you do set out to hire an expert, be sure to keep these considerations in mind so that you can plan your budget appropriately.

Amount of Furniture

One of the first aspects which will come into play here is the amount of furniture you need to transport. Naturally the more furniture you have to move, the longer the process will take. This will, in turn, be reflected in the cost.

Type of Furniture

It is important to ask your man with a van professional ahead of time, precisely what furniture they transport. Some items, like pianos, may need to be transported by specialised movers, like piano movers. These larger items can be especially awkward and heavy to transport so it is important you hire the movers with the right training.

Number of Floors

Are you moving out of a flat or are you moving out of a three-story house? The more floors you have the more furniture you will likely have. Not to mention that navigating furniture down multiple levels of stairs will be quite a bit more difficult. So, if you have multiple stories in your home, you should expect the moving cost to be somewhat higher than if you were to move out of a flat.

Number of Movers

The larger your move, the more movers you will need. In especially large moves these extra movers are key to the efficiency and overall success of the move. However, you should keep in mind that these additional movers will factor into the cost.

Size of Van

Just as the number of movers and overall size of the move can affect cost, so can the size of the van. It is often more efficient to move all of your furniture together in a single vehicle. If you have a substantial amount of furniture this vehicle will need to be larger to accommodate all of it. If you expect that due to the quantity of furniture you have that you will need a larger van then plan ahead for this in your budget.

Time

On average, when a professional mover is in charge it will take approximately 6 hours to complete a move. Keep in mind, however, that this can vary quite a bit based on the size and complexity of your move. For a more precise estimate and timeline speak with your professional directly.

Location

The location which you are moving from is yet another factor which can influence cost. If you live in an area where the cost of living is generally higher, you should expect this to be reflected in the rates.

Distance Traveled

Then, it is also important to account for the distance you need to travel to complete the move. The further you need to move, the more fuel you will need to consume. These transportation costs will then be included in the cost estimate you receive from your professional. If you are moving quite an extensive distance, budget for this ahead of time.

Experience

Experience can also play a role in the amount your professional charges. Seasoned professionals with years of experience will know the in’s and out’s of most moving situations. As with any profession, their rates may be higher as a result of this experience. In contrast, budding professionals who are looking to gain experience will likely have more cost-effective rates.

No matter whether you opt to hire a seasoned or budding professional it is important to ask for reviews. Reviews from previous customers will give you an idea of their professional style.

That way you will know if they are a good fit for your move.

There are two simple ways to find these reviews. First, you can pop over to their Bidvine profile to see reviews posted by past clients. Alternatively, you can ask them directly for their references. Serious professionals will gladly offer you references and reviews pertaining to their previous work.

Summary

Overall while it may be tempting to approach your move on your own, it is always best to hire a professional. They have the skills and expertise to tackle your project efficiently. When you hire a mover you won’t believe how easy moving can actually be.

Rob and his man were fantastic helping with my move from a second floor flat to another second floor flat. They carried all the furniture up and down 3 flights of stairs twice disassembling and reassembling as needed. I would be more than happy to recommend their services.
