How to arrange your man and van service
Contact us online or over the phone and share all the details around the move. Based on your specific requests, we will provide you with a free quote for man and van hire near your location.
Bare in mind that we don't charge per item, we charge per the time needed. The detailed item list of all your possessions that will be moved is needed for calculating the needed time for the service.
On your moving day, the man and van driver will arrive at the appointed time and will let you load all items inside the van's cargo compartment. He'll assist with arranging the items inside the van, for the purposes of safe transportation.
All pieces of furniture will be wrapped in blankets and additionally secured with belts. Upon request, we can also provide covers to protect mattresses and soft furnishings.
Your belongings are fully insured during transportation when packed by the professionals from Fantastic Removals. We don’t take responsibility for moving boxes packed by customers, as we can’t give a guarantee for a proper packing.
Your load will be transported in a Transit van. The Fantastic driver will take the shortest route to the delivery address by using a reliable GPS system. This reduces the chance for delays to the minimum.
The man and van service will be completed with the highest efficiency when you take the responsibility to provide the driver with a convenient parking space at the delivery address as well.
This way you will be able to start unloading the vehicle as quickly as possible, which is essential because as already stated it is an hourly based service.

What makes our man and van service so Fantastic?
Modern and regularly serviced vehicles
No matter if you are moving your entire household or just a single piece of furniture, the way the items are transported is extremely important. All of our Transit vans are inspected regularly and come with safety blankets inside, so you receive a smooth experience. The vehicles are suitable for a range of moves - from just a few boxes to moving some light furniture.
A partial removals option
Our man and van services are suitable for both residential and commercial customers who need to move individual items, furniture and equipment to a relatively short-distance destination or just some help with moving something around the property.
Nobody wants to see their personal possessions damaged after moving them. Our insured man with a van service is performed by a professional driver who has public liability insurance.
Fantastic Removals offers a video survey, in case your property is bigger. The idea behind this is to ease your booking process and to give you a more accurate quote. Usually, the survey takes just a few minutes.
With the Fantastic Club you enjoy preferential member rates for some of our most popular and demanded services. You also immediately receive £300 in credits in your Fantastic Account. You can apply 30 credits to 10 different services to get £30 OFF the price total of each one.

More about your man with a van service
If you are in doubt about what service you should book, remember that the man with a van option is suitable for short-distance, small-scale moves. So, if you plan to rent a new Studio or 1-bedroom flat within Greater London or you are helping your son or daughter become more independent and leave the parental home, then our man and van solutions are more than fitting for the occasion.
Bonus tip: Inform us of any antiques or expensive items
We take great care of anything that is loaded and transported to your new address. However, we also prefer to be notified of any antique or rare items so they can be wrapped with extra materials for better protection. Anyway if there are such items we strongly recommend you to be very careful while moving those from the property to the van, especially if you move through staircases.
Another convenient feature of the service is that we can provide you with a free, no-obligation quote within 48 hours. This means that you only need to fill the online form with your specific requests, in order to receive our precise price quotation. Often, we are able to send Man and a Van at a short notice or even on the same day. To compare, some large-scale moving jobs call for a preliminary free of charge viewing before you can schedule an appointment and get an idea about the service costs.
Bonus tip: Find furniture manuals
This is an essential part of the home-moving. if you are planning to take your furniture together with you, then you might need to book first a packing service (usually is arranged on the day before the move), so our experienced technicians can come at your home, dismantle all the needed furniture and pack/wrap it with the related packing materials. We can deliver all types of mattress and sofa covers, just let us know in advance. However, if you have any unusual household items that require more sophisticated tools or skills, let us know in advance. Our furniture technicians will need the manuals to get the job done as fast as possible for your maximum comfort and peace of mind.
You can benefit from ordering a moving checklist and packing materials, request our packing help, and get all your flat pack furniture dismantled. You can also benefit from the step by step packing guide to ensure all your belongings will arrive safely at their destination. We also offer short-term storage and long-term storage services where you can keep your belongings safe for as long as you need.
Bonus tip: Label all plugs
Any electric appliances with removable plugs should be put back together accordingly. Label each plug so you can get the electronics working again at the new house in minutes. This smart technique will also prevent braking an appliance from plugging it in the electrical network improperly.
Our man and van service coverage includes any location in the UK. You can also take advantage of an overnight moving service and not waste a moment of daylight. This means that you can start unpacking and settling into your new home first thing if you’ve planned your relocation properly. Furthermore, we are now expanding our services and offer international moving solutions to and from any country within or outside EU.
Bonus tip: Secure a parking lot
Reserve a parking lot for the removals van at least 1 day prior to the move. The job will be completed efficiently only if the van is parked close to your house. This step of the removals process is a customer's responsibility.
We realise that there are many other tasks to be handled around a move. For instance, you might need the item in question disassembled. That is why we need this info in advance in order to organize a team of ours to come at your facility the day before the move and get all furniture dismantled and wrapped. On the other hand, we can provide you with packing materials such as boxes of various sizes and bubble wrap if you wish to pack some of your belongings.
If you really need to move something but you have no place to put it, you can take advantage of our packing and storage service in London. And when the time comes to move them, we will take them to the address you have specified. Of course, the unpacking and the assembly is once again something we can help you with.
