What To Expect From Your Man With A Van

03Jan 2014

If you’ve hired a man with a van for your moving day but you’ve never hired one before then you might not be sure of what to expect. Hiring a man with a van is a brilliant way for you to move house. With the help of an experienced professional you’ll be in safe hands and you can have all your questions answered. If you’ve hired a man with a van for the first time then have a look at this guide to find out what you can expect.1)    Once you’ve found the right man with a van for you, you should expect them to come to your home to have a look around. This is how you’ll be able to get the most accurate price quote possible – by having the expert survey your belongings, boxes and furniture to give you a good idea of price. Over-the-phone quotes might seem easier and faster, but they’re not always precise enough, which can lead you to have to pay unseen fees on moving day.2)    Take the time to find out what will happen if your man with a van causes any accidental damages or breakages to your belongings or property. Some companies include insurance in their prices, but others don’t, so it’s important that you take the time to thoroughly investigate what will happen in a worst-case-scenario. It might be worth paying a little more for you to be safe in the knowledge that your items are all insured – if only to give you peace of mind and ease some of the stress of moving day!3)    Your man with a van will be able to make sure that you have all the help you need for your move. He should be an experienced and friendly professional who’ll make moving day easy for everyone involved. Start by moving the larger items that you own – appliances and furniture. This will make everything a lot easier!4)    If you aren’t sure about heavy lifting then it’s a good thing you’ve hired a man with a van! You won’t be expected to help out with the heaviest of our belongings, but if you do then make sure you lift properly and carefully to avoid injury.5)    Some removal companies also sell packing materials. If you’ve purchased packing materials from a removal company and also hired your man with a van, then find out about their recycling services before moving day.  Some companies will get rid of your used cardboard moving boxes and foam packing peanuts free of charge, but don’t expect this service unless it’s been agreed upon!6)    Your man with a van is responsible for lifting, loading and driving you to your home but don’t expect much more than this. Your hired professional doesn’t want to spend hours helping you decide where you want your sofa or dining room table to go, so if you want the help then try to have a rough idea of these things before you get started on moving day.7)    Some people often worry about whether or not to tip their man with a van. Tipping your man with a van is a great thing to do if you’re pleased with the service, but you shouldn’t feel obligated if you don’t think you’ve received the best level of care and service.
