Hiring a Man and Van in North London during Lockdown

Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown, it is has been a very uncertain time for businesses, landlords, and tenants alike. For many people, the crisis has brought about a change in circumstances and they may find themselves needing to move back in with family, clear out offices, or place furniture and belongings in storage. However, in the current climate, you may be concerned about hiring strangers to go in and handle your stuff. Oneplace2save is respected removal and transportation company, covering the whole of London, as well as other areas in the UK. This blog explains why you should still consider hiring a man with a van service in North London during quarantine.


Health and Safety

Obviously, the number one concern during this time is the risk of spreading the Coronavirus through direct contact or transmission through touching objects. Rest assured, health and safety have always been at the forefront of our minds at oneplace2save, and we have increased our preventative measures to ensure you (and we) stay safe and healthy.

If you prefer us to leave boxes and items of furniture on your drive for you to bring in yourselves, that’s entirely up to you. Alternatively, we can unload the van; bring everything into the correct rooms while members of the household maintain a safe distance (such as vacating the relevant room). If you would like us to unpack for you and reassemble furniture, we are happy to do so. Whatever you need to feel as safe and happy as possible during this uncertain time, we’re here to help.


Saving Money

It might sound counter-intuitive but (contracts permitting) it may well work out much cheaper for you to hire a removals service, and even a storage lock-up, to move out of your current dwelling or office, rather than pay rent on a room or building that you are unlikely to be used in the near future.

It’s not ideal, but finding new ways to work, and live, in this time may actually help you to reduce costs so money becomes less of a worry while we all wait to see what the future holds.

Below, we’ve outlined a couple of jobs for which you might want to hire a man and van in North London.


Moving Home

Whether you are temporarily moving back home, leaving student accommodation for the foreseeable future, or moving into a new permanent home, oneplace2save delivers a thoroughly professional service, with all the safety protocols in place, as described above.

Our Man with a Van in North London is even qualified to reconnect washing machines, so you can cut down on the number of tradesmen you need to employ.



Your move might be temporary, such as students or workers heading back to spend their isolation time with family members or friends. However, you might not be comfortable leaving furniture, white goods, and personal belongings in shared accommodation or an empty house or flat, but are unable to bring it to lock stock and barrel with you. The solution is to hire a man with a van, such as oneplace2save to transport everything safely to a storage lock-up of your choice.


Buying & Selling

With stock low and delivery dates uncertain from shops, many people turn to online platforms such as eBay and Gumtree to buy and sell items that have become essential in lockdown, such as exercise bikes and gym equipment, and instruments. Many people are taking the opportunity for some self-improvement, by getting into shape or learning to play an instrument. However, many items are ‘collect in person and for larger items, such as an exercise bike, or a piano, this means a courier service is required. oneplace2save is happy to transport goods you are buying or selling, including collecting, transit, and delivery, offering a personalized quote upfront for each job. All of our movers have goods in transit and public liability insurance, so in the unlikely event the worst should happen and something gets damaged in our care, you have peace of mind knowing you won’t end up paying for the damage.


Office Clearance

Whether you need to clear out your office to facilitate a move, or just require IT equipment to be taken elsewhere – perhaps to enable workers to do their jobs more effectively whilst in isolation – we are here to help.

The lockdown means businesses have to adjust and find new ways of working, with the vast majority of companies having at least part of their workforces doing their jobs remotely.

For some industries, the Coronavirus means they are being required to diversify and may need new equipment to perform new tasks, such as manufacturing ventilators and other medical equipment.

Still, others may, unfortunately, not be able to pay overheads on having a physical office space, and may, therefore, need to clear out office buildings.

Whatever your circumstances, you can be sure oneplace2save will handle the job sensitively and professionally, carrying out your specific requirements to hopefully makes the whole process as stress-free as possible. Your personalized quote, agreed upfront, means you don’t have to worry about hidden costs, and we will even handle eco-friendly and responsible waste disposal of any unwanted items, as part of the service.
