So the time has come for you to get some help in for the big move to London  . You might be moving house or moving offices and can not do it alone and therefore need some help, but where do you start?

A man with a van is definitely something that we have used over the years . If you have followed us for a while then you will know we have had our fair share of moving - with and without a man with a van .

Let me tell you , we will never be doing it alone again , that’s for sure .

So you have decided to opt for a man with a van to help out , but haven’t a clue what you are looking for . I have got some top tips for you that will hopefully help you out when choosing the right guy for you.

Definitely ask around to see if anyone has used a man with a van before . Knowing someone that has used the service before and can recommend a good one is definitely the first step in finding someone reliable.

Have a look at the reviews online . 9/10 customers will always leave feedback and reviews so have a check at their star ratings and see what has been put. The Man Van London have a really good reputation and the feedback is always positive:)

Definitely get rid of anything you are not taking before you get your quote . Any furniture you are intending to sell up before you move , or any toys that need taking to the charity shop. This will definitely cut the cost down which can go towards the move.

Write a note of exactly what you need doing so the quotes are 100% accurate. My parents moved home a few years ago and did a quick estimate but worked out nearly twice as much in costs and they turned up without a big enough van .

So In the mayhem of things , questions forget to be asked. Some really important ones especially, so definitely write down the things that you need to know and ask when the time comes .

Will protective covers be used to reduce damage?

Are boxes provided or do you need to purchase your own?

How many assistants will be doing the move ? Do you need to rally in any help?

Do they have insurance?

These are just a few we have on our list for when moving .

I really hope these top tips do help you if you are ready to make the big house move or just an office change . I hope it all goes really well :)
