Van And Driver: Moving House The Cheap Way

Van and driver: often the cheapest option.So, you’re looking to save money, and you want to move house using just a man and van. This has a number of benefits: cost usually being the most important. You can save huge amounts of money doing things yourself, and with a man and driver, you’re automatically reducing the cost of a standard move by anything up to 80 per cent. Of course, the longer it takes you to do it, the more you’ll have to pay. Often a daily rate is preferable, payable when the job is done (after all, any van and driver is more likely to stick around for a quick last run if he hasn’t been paid). The thing is that not all van and driver services are the same. If you’re an elderly woman, for example, you may not feel particularly safe with a burly skinhead moving your belongings. Of course, that’s a generalisation, but you get the point. There are a number of companies which offer a specific service to specific clients with only marginal extra cost. High value furniture delivery is one such service. Obviously, if you’re moving anything of high value, you will need to be insured to the appropriate level, and these kind of services will do that without hassle. All female van and driver companies are a similar affair, and will suit anyone who would like a little more peace of mind with their move. Women are, after all, generally a little more careful than men. If you're after a van and driver service, try Anyvan for free quotes from thousands of removal and courier companies.
