Moving home is often cited as one of the most stressful life events, and it usually costs a small fortune too. Choosing a self-drive van could offer a way to reduce the costs a little but is it the right choice for you?

Things to Consider:

  • Self-drive Van Hire offers much more flexibility to your move day. You generally hire a van on a daily basis so you’re not being charged by the hour like with a professional Man and Van service provider.
  • A Luton van can be booked for £80-£100 per day, depending on your location and the date you’re booking for. This can be cheaper than a man with a van but you should remember that you need to pay for fuel, insurance, and you still need to collect and return the van.
  • Driving a large vehicle that you’re not used to can be a daunting prospect and damage to a hire vehicle is often expensive to repair.
  • Does your home insurance cover your belongings whilst in transit?

Here are some of the benefits of hiring a professional Man with a Van service provider:

  • Your Man with a Van will arrive where you need for the time you book them and the price you agree is the price paid, there are no hidden insurance costs and no excess to pay if there is any damage to the vehicle.
  • You get a professional to help you move, not just an extra pair of hands. A good Man and Van service provider will have everything needed to safely stow and transfer your belongings from A to B and they are experts in loading goods into and out of vans.
  • Using a Man and Van service provider is much less stressful than doing everything yourself, both mentally and physically.
  • Your belongings are insured whilst in transit.
