To make life easier call a reliable man and van service to help with the majority of the work. Able Man and Van will arrive on time and work quickly to complete the job to your satisfaction.

Tips to help you save money with our 'man with a van' serviceRemove clutter before moving or paying for storage. As the majority of moves are carried out at weekends some man and van companies provide a discount for work carried out during the week and charge a premium for Saturday and Sunday. We just maintain the same cheap hourly rate, so call early to avoid disappointment for weekend and evening 'man and van' work as we get booked up very quickly. To save time we recommend that items are carefully packed and boxes labelled before we arrive. We can then quickly load the van and take to the destination and then unpack following instructions on boxes ie. lounge, bedroom etc.. Further time can be saved by making the pickup and drop off points easy to access. The more you help us the cheaper your bill will be. Unlike hiring your own van there is no huge deposit and you only pay for the time that we are carrying your items. We have heard of a few instances of people losing all their deposit (£500!) when they have only made a small scratch on the hired van - this is very easy to do especially with unsecured large items moving on the inside, an easy mistake for the inexperienced.
How to get Free or Cut Price Storage in Ashtead
Garage Storage Can be from just £10 per week but suffers from extremes of temperature and if not properly maintained can let in the rain leading to water/ humidity damage. Mice and insects such as the larvae of moths can quickly destroy fabric in chairs and carpets. Therefore garages are not ideal for storage unless you are very careful and store for only short periods.
Friends and Parents - 'Free' Storage Well insulated lofts and spare rooms make great storage areas. You just need to come to an amicable agreement which doesn't stretch goodwill too far. Remember storage space is very expensive, so show your appreciation either financially or by taking them out for a nice meal/ helping with the garden etc..Save money with your storage company in Ashtead Able 'man and van' are often found either collecting or dropping off our customers items to storage companies such as Safestore, Big Yellow and Access Storage etc. We know which storage company are offering discounts, so call us and we'll happily point you in the right direction for what we have seen are the cheapest storage prices in and around Ashtead.
Ashtead Removal Company or Man with a Van?It really comes down to cost and size of the move and who is picking up the bill. Removal companies have many staff, large lorries, offices, warehousing etc... All of which cost a fortune, they naturally pass on that cost plus profit margin to their customers. Most offer a good service but at a price many cannot afford. In this recession more and more people are turning to a 'man and van' service which is just as reliable but at a cheaper price. Most man and van companies are not lucky enough to generate over the vat threshold of £73,000 therefore do not have to be registered for VAT. This leads to an immediate saving of 20%. Vans come in many different sizes from those the size of a Ford Transit to Long Wheel Base vans and Luton vans with tail lifts. None are as large as a removal company's lorry but it may be very worthwhile making two trips in a smaller van than one in a very expensive lorry.
