Man and Van-The Benefits of Using for Your Removals
Nowadays, more and more people are starting to veer away from traditional removal companies and are instead opting for a good old ‘man and van’. On this page we are going to take a little look at a couple of reasons as to why people would want to go down this route.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of hiring a man and van for your removals is that you are getting two services for the price of one. Obviously you get your transportation. You then get your labour on top of this as well. This means that you only need to pay one bill at the end of the day. Generally speaking, it is much easier to get two services from the same company than purchasing a different service from two different companies.
Professional removal companies tend to be large entities. They often have large marketing budgets, lots of staff, and generally large running costs. If you hire one of them then the cost of this will be factored into the price. As a result, this service can be quite expensive. Using a ‘man and a van’ company will often be far cheaper as the running costs are considerably smaller. The level of service tends to be the same too, if not much better. The only downside is that removal companies will often move you large distances whereas a small company will have smaller vehicles and often only transport you within the immediate area, or just outside of the city boundaries. There are some who will travel further, but these companies are few and far between.
Finally, a man with a van tends to give a much more personal service. Quite often, the person who makes the ‘sale’ will be the very same person who will be driving your goods around and completing the job. As a result, they will be in the best position to tell you how the service will pan out. With this type of work you will know who you are dealing with every single step of the way. Remember, a man with van tends to have a far lower marketing budget. This means that they often rely on ‘word of mouth’ advertising. They know that they are going to have to do an absolutely stunning job otherwise their business will slip away. In my opinion, those that work for the larger removal companies tend not to be in the same frame of mind. After all, their marketing department is going to ensure that their business continues to come in.
Remember, if you want to take advantage of the various benefits that are associated with hiring a man with a van then you are going to need to make sure that you take the time to find the right company for the job. There are a few of them out there. Only a few are going to be any good. Take the time to find the right team and you can be sure that the job will be completed to perfection.
