If you are moving a flat in east London, then you will likely have already realized that you have little need for a removals company if you’re only doing a small move. If your flat is more than four bedrooms, then perhaps you’ll need a fair bit more help, but if not then it can often be the case that hiring a man and van Bow ensures a successful moving process, whilst also saving you a lot of cash in the process. Take a look at our guide to making your smaller move that little bit more successful and cheap, so that you are in the money when it comes to getting your new place up and running.

To start with, give yourself plenty of time in advance to weigh up your options, and work out your budget. This will mean that you can make effective decisions as to how much you need to get sorted out before booking your man and van, and that you can budget effectively, to make your move affordable, and to work out where you need to save money, and where it would be wrong to cut corners.

With a man and van service there are plenty of positives, but these are almost always a double edged sword, as with the freedom to do a move on your own terms, comes a huge amount of effort and work in a realm that you perhaps do not have that much experience in. For instance, a removals team will have been doing their job for a number of years, and will have the experience needed to make sure that a sofa gets from a top floor flat to the van without being damaged, or damaging anything else, you however, are unlikely to be in the same boat, so there will be a lot of learning on the job, which can prove to be expensive. Mistakes made by you or your friends can cost you hundreds of pounds in repairs or replacing furniture, so you should be completely sure that you are facing up to a move that is totally doable by you and some friends or family with a man and van, and that you shouldn’t just be investing in a Bow removals company, who may cost a fair bit, but will likely reduce the number of mistakes that are made.

If you think you’re up to the challenge, then you’ll need to hire a man and van. Getting this right can be tricky, as you’ll likely be tempted by a larger company with a bit of prestige, which usually comes in the form of highly visible advertising, or a fancy website. It is worth remembering that these things cost a lot of money, and the increased exposure will only let the company raise its prices, so you will often be better off looking into finding a smaller company, or standalone outfit to help you out, as this will be cheaper. The best services are usually just guys who have vans who do removals Bow for a bit of extra cash, rather than anything too professional. When getting your quote, find out whether you want to use a company who charge by the hour or overall for the whole job. The rate per hour can be a lot cheaper than a flat fee, but if you run into traffic or have a problem and have to do more than one trip, then things can get very expensive very quickly, so only go with the hourly rate if you know the job well.
