About our Man with a Van service

Our Man with a Van service is designed for small moves within 30 miles. Typically these small moves are a one day move to keep your costs low.

We’ll tailor a service that best suits you and provide you with a verbal, no obligation quote over the phone.

How does it work?

You will have access to the van from 8.30am to 6pm in the evening. Our team of two will arrive, introduce themselves and conduct a quick assessment of the items you intend to move.

The team will arrive and, if requested, professionally pack your goods for you. They will then load the items into the van, ensuring that loading protocols are compliant with health and safety standards.

The team will drive to your new home, unload the van, place the furniture in your new home under your direction and unpack smaller items onto flat surfaces.

If you need to make more than one visit between properties, you can. You’ll have the van for the day, so you can make multiple trips if required.

The team will clear all debris at the time of the move if required. If you need the team and the vehicle for additional hours beyond 6pm, you will be charged accordingly.

You will receive a call before move day, on the day and after move day to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the service from Pickfords.

Need help packing?

We offer an optional packing service. This will be done by our team on the day of your move. We’ll assess your packing requirements over the phone and suggest the best moving kit for your needs.

If you prefer to pack yourself and require materials, we can deliver packing materials to you ahead of move day.

About our Man and Van professionals

Your Man with a Van removals team includes two highly trained professionals. All of our removal men are trained in manual handling, packing and loading and customer care. Training is ongoing, with all teams undergoing refresher courses throughout the year to ensure that packing and loading skills are up to date.

Our removal men are fully checked and cleared by the UK government's Disclosure and Barring Service (formally called CRB checks) for your total peace of mind, and are easily identifiable by their distinctive navy uniforms.

All our drivers are CPC qualified, which means they’ve been trained to drive responsibly and our vehicles are compliant with the London Emission Zone regulations. Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) is a qualification which requires the driver to attend initial training to qualify, then to follow up with refresher training throughout their career.
