Whatever you’re moving, a man with a van can be an inexpensive way to get your stuff from A-B.

If you need to have something couriered to you or delivered to someone else, hiring a specialist courier for the job can often be expensive, and what’s more, traditional parcel services usually limit the size of the packages they take.

Independent van drivers are usually much more flexible than large courier organisations and will handle a wide variety of loads. Depending on the driver you can also get more than just a basic delivery service – many drivers will be willing help you with the heavy lifting too but the level of service will vary from company to company.

If you’re worried that your delivery might be especially difficult to handle then drivers usually have the option to bring along an extra pair of hands to assist with loading, so it’s always a good idea to contact services prior to the callout to make sure they can cope with the consignment.

Man and van operators are often self-employed or contracted under small businesses and there are thousands of localised operators available to choose from.

This abundance of “white van men” means that you can potentially be left with too many choices to handle your shipping needs so sometimes you need to narrow it down a bit.

Before your delivery

Check over your items and take pictures to get an idea of the condition they’re in, this will help you make any insurance claims in the unlikely event that your load is damaged during transit.

Consider wrapping your goods, especially if they’re fragile; some drivers will prefer to be present when items are packed because this could be a clause in their insurance policy.
