5 Jobs to Hire a Man and Van in London

You might think it is only necessary to hire a moving van in London when you are moving house, or undergoing a big office clearance, but there are other occasions when you may need a van service in London. Oneplace2save offers man and van services in London and beyond, in this blog, we outline the different kinds of jobs you might need for a man and van hire in London.


1.      Moving House

For many people, moving home is one of the biggest events in their lives and, while it’s an exciting time, it can also be a long and stressful process.

Hiring a removal service such as oneplace2save means that you are in the hands of experts and can hopefully relax and enjoy moving into your new home.

From the personalized quote, you’ll receive when you’ve given us your requirements, to the final stage of unpacking, we’re happy to go above and beyond to ensure you receive the best possible service. We’ll even help you to hang pictures, change lightbulbs, reconnect your washing machine for you, and suggest storage solutions. When we say full service, that’s exactly what we mean.


2.      Office Clearance

Whether you are moving offices, or simply upgrading your IT equipment, a man and a van service can help. Whether you want us to collect and deliver new equipment and/or furniture, or dispose of your unwanted goods, our strong team will get the job done. From providing packing materials to carrying heavy items up and downstairs, we’ll accomplish each task with minimum disruption and mess, in a timely fashion. We’ll also take care of the responsible disposal of goods and materials including wood, metal and paint cans, as well as your old IT equipment and furniture. Approved by the Environment Agency, we look to provide eco-friendly recycling and disposal solutions.


3.      Sofa Collection & Delivery

Most large furniture shops will provide delivery, but what do you do if you need to transport a sofa from one private address to another?

With the rise of sites like eBay and Gumtree, it’s possible to find bargains and vintage pieces online, often ‘free to a good home’ or ‘free collection’.  You don’t want to miss out on a beautiful piece of furniture just because you can’t transport it.

The solution? Hire a man with a van in London, such as oneplace2save.

Not only will we collect, pack up, and deliver your new sofa direct to your door, we’ll carry it into the right room, removing doors if necessary, to ensure we don’t leave any scratch marks or damage your paintwork.

Given enough notice, and communication, in some circumstances, we may even be able to work with your window company to temporarily remove a window in order to get the sofa in, or out of your house.

If the sofa requires dissembling for transport and reassembling on arrival, don’t worry, it’s all part of the package.


4.      Motorcycle Recovery Services

A man and a van service might not be the first thing you think of when considering transporting or recovering a motorcycle.

But oneplace2save employs multiple recovery drivers, so if your bike breaks down, leaving you stranded somewhere, we can come and collect you and your motorbike, and deliver you both back to your chosen address.

Or perhaps you just need to transport your motorcycle to a different location but don’t wish to ride it there for whatever reason? Whether it’s a new purchase, a bike you’ve sold, or you need to get it to an event, we’ve got you covered.

Don’t worry, just as we take extra care with home or office valuables, we will ensure your motorbike arrives in exactly the same condition as it was when we collected it.

Our recovery vans are fitted with professional recovery equipment to keep your custom, chopper, racing motorcycle, scooter, or moped safe throughout its journey.


5.      TV & Film Equipment Transportation

It’s not just domestic dwellings and offices which may require the transporting of goods or equipment, either.

London is home to film studios and is used as a location for many films and TV programs.

In film and TV production, time really is money, as delays can cost studios and production companies £1000s. It is imperative, therefore, that all equipment, props, and sets arrive at their designated location promptly and in perfect condition.

The oneplace2save team has built a reputation for consistently delivering a thorough, punctual, and professional service and can accommodate a variety of requests – just let us know your requirements.

Our drivers and movers understand that companies cannot risk the slightest damage to any sets, equipment, or props, and so take extra care to protect every item entrusted to us, throughout the loading, transport, and unloading process.


All our drivers are insured for goods in transit and public liability, so in the unlikely event the worst should happen, and something does get damaged in our care, you have peace of mind knowing you’re covered.
