Contact us online or over the phone and share all the details about the move. Based on your specific requests, we will provide you with a free quote for man and van hire near your location.
Bear in mind that we don't charge per item, but per the time needed. That's why, to calculate the necessary time for the service, we need a detailed list of all your possessions that will be moved.
On the day of your man and van service, a fully equipped van with a driver will be sent to your address. After you load your belongings, the driver can assist with arranging the items inside the van, so that they are transported safely.
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.
For maximum efficiency, we strongly advise that you prepare your items for the man and van service before the professional driver arrives at your address.
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 proper packing.
Your load will be transported in a Transit van. To reduce the chance of delays to a minimum, the professional driver will use a reliable GPS system and take the shortest route to the delivery address.
Upon arrival at the delivery location, you or a friend of yours must be on site to meet the driver and unload the van. To minimise any inconvenience, don't forget to arrange a convenient parking spot near the property.
This way you can start unloading the moving van as quickly as possible and ensure that the man and van service is completed with the highest efficiency.

Modern and regularly serviced moving vans
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 relocation experience. The vehicles are suitable for a range of moves - from just a few boxes to moving some light furniture.
With our moving service, you can have peace of mind that your possessions will be protected during their transportation to the delivery address. Performed by a professional driver with public liability insurance, the man with a van service provides insurance coverage for your items during transit and ensures their safe delivery.
A partial removals option
Our local man with a van for hire services ensure a seamless and cost-effective solution to all your moving needs. Suitable for residential or commercial moves, the service is perfect whether you're relocating individual items, furniture, or equipment over a short distance.
Fantastic Removals offers a video survey, in case you are planning a bigger relocation. Usually, the survey takes just a few minutes. It gives us a thorough understanding of your requirements, which makes the booking process easier and helps us prepare a more accurate quote.
Fantastic Club membership
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.
If you doubt what service you should book, remember that the man with a van is suitable for short-distance or small-scale moves. So, if you plan to rent a new Studio or 1-bedroom flat in London or you are helping your son or daughter to become more independent and leave the parental home, then our man and van service is the perfect choice.
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 in extra materials for better protection. Anyway, if there are such items, we strongly recommend you be very careful while moving them from the property to the van, especially if you move through staircases.
One of the great benefits of the man and van service is that, based on availability, you can hire a van with a driver at short notice or even on the same day. Another convenient feature of the service is that we can provide you with a free, no-obligation quote within 48 hours. Some large-scale moving jobs call for a preliminary free-of-charge viewing before you can schedule your relocation and get an idea about the service costs. All you have to do to receive our precise price quotation is fill out the online form with your specific requests for the move.
Bonus tip: Find furniture manuals
This is an essential part of the home moving. If you're planning to take your furniture with you, then you might need to book a packing service first. Usually, it is arranged for the day before the move so our experienced technicians can come to your home, dismantle all the needed furniture and pack/wrap it with the proper packing materials. We can also provide 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. Remember to provide the furniture manuals, as our furniture assemblers will need them to get the job done as fast as possible for your maximum comfort and peace of mind.
You can benefit from ordering our moving boxes delivery service, requesting our packing help or getting all your flat-pack furniture dismantled. We also offer short-term storage and long-term storage services, and corporate clients can benefit from our business storage, 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 damaging an appliance by incorrectly plugging it into the electrical network.
Our man and van service coverage includes any location in the UK. You can also take advantage of an overnight moving service and avoid wasting a moment of daylight. This means that if you've planned your relocation properly, you can start unpacking and settling into your new home first thing in the morning. Furthermore, we are expanding our services and offer international removals to and from any country within or outside the EU.
Bonus tip: Secure a parking lot
This step of the removals is the customer's responsibility. That's why, to avoid any delays or inconvenience, we advise you to reserve a suitable parking spot for the moving van at least 1 day prior to the move. That way, the loading/ unloading will be easier, and the service will be more efficient.
We realise that there are many tasks to be handled around a move. For instance, you might need your items to be disassembled. That's why we need this info in advance in order to organise a team to come to your facility the day before the move and get all furniture dismantled and prepared for transportation. 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.
And if your property is not ready to move in and you need a place to store your belongings, you can take advantage of our storage service in London. When the time comes to move your belongings, we'll deliver them to the address you have specified. Of course, the unpacking and the assembly is once again something we can help you with.

A: Our man and van service offers only one professional driver to handle the goods' transportation. If you need two or more movers you'll need to book our complete removals service.

A: Unfortunately, we are not allowed to transport pets, even if they are secured in a carrier and the delivery location is not far from your old address.
Q: Are there any additional charges if I have to cancel the service?
A: No charge is applied if you notify us at least 48 hours before your appointment. If you have more questions related to the price of the service, you can check our detailed guide on the man and van price factors.

A: Yes. Based on the available man with van near you, you can schedule a same-day appointment. Make sure to contact us and we'll do what we can to fit you into the schedule as soon as possible.
Q: What do I need to do before the man and van service?
A: You should organise a parking space prior to moving day. Also, ensure that items, which you need moving, are ready for loading (ex: empty drawers, dismantle wall-mounted TV sets, etc.).
