Moving to Merton soon? If you’re moving from a nearby London borough like Wandsworth, a man and van service could be a cost-effective option. So, hold fire before you call in a full removal crew and take a moment to consider your options.

When man and van is a smarter choice

If you aren’t moving far or don’t have very much to move, you don’t necessarily need a full removals service. A far more flexible and cheaper option is man and van. A couple of moving professionals (who won’t damage your stuff and will always turn up on time) in a handy-sized van to help you move for a couple of hours. These services charge by the hour, so you’re not paying for time you don’t use.

If you’re moving out of a furnished tenancy, for example, you aren’t likely to have very much stuff. It would be a huge waste of money to use a full removals service. However, you also don’t want to be cramming everything in your car or schlepping it across town on public transport. The solution – man and van.

Man and van Wandsworth to Merton – how long should it take?

It doesn’t take very long to travel between these two neighbouring London boroughs. The drive takes roughly around 1 hour and 30 minutes depending on your starting point, destination and of course traffic.

Man and van Wandsworth to Merton – how much should it cost?

If you use Kiwi Movers’ man and van Wandsworth to Merton service for around 2 hours (to cover loading, unloading and any traffic you may run into), this could cost you just £150 plus VAT.

This gets you two moving experts, who have extensive experience between them of moving quickly, efficiently and safely. They’ll move everything from door to door, providing you with a convenient, stress-free service. Our movers know that your time is money, so there’s no hanging around.

If you move during peak hours, this cost will be higher – so a good tip to save money is to move at quieter times. For example, avoiding bank holidays and weekends when everyone else is trying to move house.

Why it’s important to choose man and van services carefully

You may see man and van services advertised cheaply on sites like Gumtree. In our experience though – you need to be very careful when choosing who to use. Many of these ads are posted by people with no experience of moving, with no insurance and with no testimonials or reviews from customers who have actually used them.

Moving day can be stressful enough, so the last thing you need is worries over the van being late or not turning up at all. In the worst cases, some of these man and van ads are posted by con artists who happily take the money and are never heard of again. Yikes!
