Choosing the Right Man & Van Moving Services in London
There are many elements that could affect your choice of removals company. Location, price, and availability are probably the most obvious factors, but you should also take into account reputation and added value.
Oneplace2save has been operating as a multi-service ‘a man with a van’ company for more than a decade. We know what to watch out for and how to separate genuine companies from the ‘too good to be true. In this blog, we’ll take you through the process of choosing the right man & van moving service London for your move.
Where & When?
If you are looking for a man with a van in London, you shouldn’t be short of choices. There are many, many companies out there all claiming to be the ‘best London movers’. However, there are a few things you should research before taking them at their word.
- Local knowledge – are they actually based in London, will they know the shortcuts, parking rules, and rush hours to maximize efficiency? – we do
- Will they work around your schedule to ensure your move or office clearance takes place when it is most convenient for you? – we will
- Do they offer transparent evening, weekend, and bank holiday rates so you can make an informed decision? – we do
Now that you’ve ascertained the where and when you will most likely start looking at prices. It is not difficult to find cheap movers in London. However, it is more difficult to find London movers who offer real value for money. That’s where we come in. You should always obtain at least two or three quotes before making your decision. The vaguer the initial assessment, the more scope there is for companies to add on charges later. This means you should be clear in which services you need, but also make sure the company isn’t trying to confuse you into thinking you will be paying one amount, knowing the final tally will be much higher.
At Oneplace2save, we will perform an audit and take an inventory, to provide you with a detailed, personalized quote, free, and at no obligation. This way you can see exactly what the full cost will be and budget accordingly.
Equally, if a price sounds too cheap, beware that that company makes be cutting corners. Always check that they have Public Liability and Goods in Transit insurance, as we do. Any company that doesn’t will leave you open to potential damage costs.
If everything checks out, you should consider whether your quote represents added value. For example, you may have a great quote for the move itself, but have you considered other costs such as waste disposal?
As a multi-service offering, we can take care of every aspect of your move, if so wish. We can help you pack and unpack, disassemble and reassemble furniture, reconnect your washing machine and other appliances, and even hang pictures, change lightbulbs, and suggest storage solutions. Speaking of storage, we can also offer you long-term storage solutions for items you may not have room for but are not willing to part with. Alternatively, we can get rid of your unwanted items, including IT equipment in a GDPR compliant and eco-friendly manner. We may even be able to pay you for larger IT items.
