An Alternative to Van Hire

For most people, if they need to move a large object such as a piece of furniture or do a small house removal their initial reaction is to look into van hire. While this can sometimes be the cheapest option for long distance transport, for local transport a "man with van" service like ours usually works out cheaper and is far more convenient.

We come to you

When you book a van with us, your van will arrive at the pickup location at the time you've booked and we'll only charge you for the time the van is being used for your booking. No need for time consuming travel halfway across town to pick up a van and return it again afterwards.

No deposit or ID required

Traditional van hire companies require a deposit, which can be as much as £500 and have ID requirements, which in some cases are on a par with what you needed to join Blockbuster video (remember them?).

Short notice

With a fleet of vans, and with most of our bookings being 1-2 hours there's a high chance we'll have a van available when you need it, even the same day. If you've ever tried to hire a van at the last minute, especially on a Saturday, you'll know it can be quite a challenge. (We know because we've tried!)

Help included

Help from our driver to load and unload is included in the price, meaning many of our customers can move house without even needing to rope in any friends to help for as little as £25. We can also provide additional helpers if needed.

Experienced van driver

If you've never driven a van before, driving and especially parking it in some of Bristol's narrow streets can be quite challenging, especially if it's on top of the stress of moving house. With us there's no need to worry, as our experienced drivers get your items safely to their destination.

Efficient/safe loading

Our drivers are highly experienced at "Van Tetris" - packing items to make the most efficient use of the space, and packing the van in a way that makes sure fragile items aren't damaged in transit.
