Man with a van Edinburgh Hire.

Hiring a Man with a van Edinburgh what you need to know and what we need to know. Firstly man with a van Edinburgh hire can be hired to provide a Luton van to move items when moving flat or home or even unwanted furniture disposal of household items in Edinburgh. It can be with one man or two man removal porter labour, and also a service known as kerb to kerb which is the cheapest hiring a man with a van option.

Getting a Quote almost right ?

To get a quote right you need to provide as much information as you can, Dates fairly important , both street locations helpful, floors/Levels involved if it’s a flat are an important start, saying all within the Edinburgh area isn’t great, some areas like Balerno, Loanhead Ratho, South Queensferry, Kirliston, Dalkeith, Mayfield, Musselburgh, Pathhead, are kind of stretches to say Edinburgh, yes people do think this, so best being clear on the addressees it may well be an EH postcode but it’s not Edinburgh.

Whats being moved? My stuff, not much, round the corner, not far, just the usual?

Some of the requests we get range from My stuff, just the usual , student stuff, a car load, 2 car loads, a van load, not much, no furniture, not a lot, hardly anything really, how much to move? To get any sort of quote to gauge whats needed its helpful to have some kind of idea of whats being moved, it is a service after all, nothing is free in this life, how long does it take to carry 70 items to or from a 3rd floor, it needs costed for.

Whats does hiring a man with a van price include?

Whats included ?Everything you have told us to move, it doesn’t include anything you haven’t told us, it also includes the van, yes some people ask if its included and also the requested labour, fuel and furniture protective coverings if required. It doesn’t include collecting you like a taxi to take to collection point or taking you somewhere after the jobs done, waiting for key access unless this has been mentioned at the start of the quote, dismantling stuff unless agreed before hand, doing extra wee trips not mentioned nearby or round corner my cousins house etc or disposing of stuff like cardboard from something you bought or items don’t want that seems to be in good condition in your eyes, if you assume someone with a white van takes away free cardboard uplifts or unwanted things which is a strange phenomenon, most things unwanted are just that, unwanted, but it’s not free of charge to dispose, again nothing is free in this life and needs paying for.

My, that sounds harsh!

No not really, we are honest and if van man removals does a job we carry it out as best we can its best being honest with people at the start rather than movers who agree everything without asking anything based all on a guesstimate or accepting the customers definition off the job, thus on arrival seeing the reality promptly bumping the costs up or get straight back in the van and drive off. The other factor is the job could be huge when it s made out to be not much and getting that wrong has consequences on vehicle size, manpower or even being able to carry it out.
