Do You Need a Man with a Van in Staffordshire?


It's effortless to acquire an estimate for a cost-effective & dependable man with a van staffordshire using Shiply. Simply create a posting on Shiply and man and van businesses will send you estimates directly to your inbox.


A staffordshire man with a van service is perfect for moving something from one place to another, such as a small home relocation, or as a delivery service for transporting furniture, appliances, or other sizable items that you cannot pick up yourself.


Independent van operators are usually much more flexible than large delivery companies and will handle a wide variety of loads. You can also specify beforehand what degree of service you require from your man and van. Many delivery drivers will be willing to provide you with an additional pair of hands for heavy lifting or furniture assembly.


Man and Van Services


When comparing services, you should always bear the following in mind:


Transit insurance: To transport goods, all man and van businesses should be covered by goods in transit insurance, which protects the drivers for any damage caused to their loads up to a value of £10,000 (adequate for most deliveries).


Experience: Because it's relatively simple to start a van delivery service, companies can appear overnight. Ensure that you inquire what kind of experience they have moving single items & multiple items similar to yours. This isn't such a concern with basic items, but for delicate goods, it can pay to hire someone with expertise.


Locality: Hiring a company from two towns away is only going to increase your expenses, whereas finding a driver who's already making a journey near your desired delivery can mean you save a huge amount on standard rates. That's why the typical man with a van london type services aren't always the best.


Level of service: Depending on what you're moving, you might need a few extra pairs of hands to help shifting your items, so it always pays to check ahead with the driver to see whether they'll be able to assist with loading and unloading.


Staffordshire, UK is a popular location for people to relocate to and from using man and van services. With its breathtaking countryside, lively towns, and excellent transport links, Staffordshire attracts many people looking for a change of scenery or a new beginning. Whether you're moving to Staffordshire for work, family, or just for a fresh start, a man with a van can help make your move stress-free and efficient.


Comparing Man and Van Quotes


When you need to hire a man with a van, you've literally got thousands of options, and taking the time to compare the available choices would no doubt be time-consuming. You could just go with the first available service; alternatively, you could bring the companies' estimates to you.


Shiply can help match your items to local van drivers already making a similar journey. Simply list what you're moving, where it's going, and when you need it transported, then thousands of companies will be able to quote for your delivery; van operators with spare space in their vehicles could quote you less.


Compare the services based on their price and feedback that they have received from previous deliveries to find one that suits you. All prices on Shiply are for the complete job, no hourly rates where you can get stung by traffic or drivers taking the long route.


Completing the Delivery


When your goods arrive, check that they match the photos you took prior to the delivery (you did take photos, didn't you?). If they have been damaged, make sure you consult with the driver immediately and submit your proof.


Once your items are unloaded & you're satisfied with the service, please do leave some feedback on Shiply for your chosen service - this will help us build the best database of reliable man and van businesses. Best of luck with your move!

When Will I Receive A Quote?

You will typically start to receive quotes within 30 minutes.

If your delivery is urgent, you can try our 'featured delivery' feature which moves your listing to the top of the search page for couriers.

How Many Quotes Will I Receive?

Whilst there is no guarantee of quotes, 98% of our listings receive at least 3 quotes, so you are likely to find someone who can undertake the delivery of your items.

Does Shiply Provide Packing Materials?

If your item requires packing materials or extra care then you should make sure this is highlighted in your listing and discussed with any transport provider whose quote you are considering. Couriers on Shiply are able to provide all levels of service and can help pack your items, just ensure you inform them of your needs.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Transport providers will almost always tie up an item in the transport vehicle, as the risk of damage from moving around during transit is high. You should always confirm safety precautions and packing needs with transport providers before accepting a quote.

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?

Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Travel With My Goods?

The majority of transport providers on Shiply are only insured for the transportation of goods, however, some are also able to take people. If you need to travel with your goods, make sure to mention this in your listing and highlight this to any courier who quotes on your listing.

What If I Need To Cancel My Booking?

If you have accepted a quote and paid the deposit but wish to cancel the delivery, then you should first inform your chosen transport provider that you no longer require the delivery. You should then contact us at to have your deposit refunded.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?

If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing. Note that editing details of your listing after publishing will result in active quotes being voided, so you will have to wait for new quotes to come in. If you have already accepted a quote and need to change the address, please let your transport provider know and contact us at .

I Need More Than One Pair Of Hands, Is This Possible?

Yes! It is very possible to request extra help when making a listing, just ensure that you make this requirement explicit when making the listing so that you get accurate quotes for the service you require.
