Make moving home easy using a man with a van

5 Simple Reasons why you need a man with a van when moving home

Moving house is up there with one of the most stressful things you encounter in your adult life. It's up there with changing jobs or having a baby as a major change that so many people find stressful. The whole process of buying a house, completing, solicitors, is such a huge process that by the time you come around to the actual moving part you're often so mentally exhausted it's the last thing you want to do.

But there are ways to minimise that stress and organisation and for me the biggest difference  and stress relief was using a man with a van while moving

Man with a van

Before moving make sure you've done a thorough cleanout of everything you don't need to take with you. Skip hire* is definitely worthwhile when moving home to help get rid of any excess, even if you don't have a huge amount of items there are small skips* available too

Honestly I know it's an additional expense, but you will not regret using a man with a van when moving house, services such as The man van really give you peace of mind and here's why:


Packing up all your belongings and moving it to another house is so time-consuming and a faff, actually loading the items into a car, to realise that there isn't enough room and you need to make multiple trips is just a nightmare. The time saved by hiring a professional moving service is infinite. These guys do this on a daily basis, they've got the tetris of items down to a fine art and you can just sit back and relax as they load your prized possessions and take them to your new space - unloading them in exactly the room you want to turn your new space into a home

Expert Service

Just like they've got the art of packing and unpacking to a level of perfection, a professional man with a van service also has years of experience in moving homes. They can provide expert advice on the best way to move particularly tricky items and make sure your prized possessions are safely packaged correctly to arrive at your new home. It's likely they will also have options for protective covers and bags to aid with the removal so you don't need to think about it.


If you've tried to move on your own you'll realise how tiring the process can be, by hiring a man with a van you have a paid person who's happy to help - maybe even two people if necessary. You've already got more pairs of hands than you had originally meaning everything can be done much faster and be less tiresome for you

Stress Relief

Guaranteed something will go wrong on moving day. Whether that's a delay in getting the keys, bad weather so you can't pop items on the garden as you move in or even something as simple as you've got little kids that need your attention. Every aspect of move day is carefully considered by professional man with a van companies to make the process as smooth as possible and your day as stress free as they can.


It seems counterintuitive to put the cost as a benefit but bear with me. When hiring a man with a van service you can pick and choose which benefits you require, from the size of the van to whether you want packaging help, to full on packing and moving services so there's bound to be a package to suit your requirements. The price will be completely transparent and upfront. Whereas if you're moving on your own you need to consider the cost of all the packing materials, petrol costs for the countless trips back and forth, the cost of a moving van if you decide you need a bigger space and even insurance - not to mention the cost of any damages that you might incur. By hiring a professional you're consolidating all those costs and hiring an insured service to protect your valuables

For me, moving house was stressful and hiring a man with a van is an absolute no brainer for providing peace of mind.
