Man And Van Facts.

You might have many questions, so you can find some of the answers below.

  • When comparing services and prices using Book A Mover, try to stay away from the cheapest price. You can always ask the man and van firm with a higher price to match a lower price. If they are not busy and you are flexible with your moving date, they will most likely say ”YES”.
  • If you are doing some of the packing, always use cardboard boxes or plastic containers and have a plan for how to label them. Using bags when doing removals is not a good idea. They can get easily ripped and this can damage your belongings.
  • Always ask for confirmation documents and any insurance documents before paying for the removal services.
  • If you live in a flat in a big building, check with the building rules. If there is a concierge, it is a good idea to check where the removal van must park and if the movers are allowed to use the lift.
