What Can you do When it’s Time to Move House?

March 27, 2012 by

Few people are going to pretend that moving house is an easy process to go through. The reality is that it’s incredibly stressful and few people want to go through with it. But what about hiring a full-sized van for the move? This is usually something which you don’t have a choice over, but should you hire a man with a van or hire your own van? Instead of taking out a months van insurance, you can get someone else to do it instead, and isn’t this better?

The Cost

Yes, it does cost quite a bit of money to hire a man with a van, but compare it with hiring your own van or using another vehicle. Hiring a large van can mean that you have to make fewer trips between the old and the new house, which will save time, money spent on fuel, and it will certainly reduce the risk of a box falling off and damaging the contents within.

Also, let’s remember that if you were to hire your own van you would also be forced to take out temporary van insurance. And temporary van insurance doesn’t come cheap, so all of this is adding to the overall cost of a house move.


The good thing about full-sized vans and the people who drive them is that they know what they are doing. When it comes to storing a lot of boxes in a van, they know how to stack them so they won’t fall over and break. But do you know how to do this? The answer is probably not. This is why it’s better to entrust the move to a man with a fully-sized van instead.

And the final advantage is that a van has the space to be able to move everything in one trip, which, as mentioned before, will save time and money for you and your family.

What to Take into Account?

Always make sure that you ask for referrals because not every company/individual will be as competent as each other. The best way to do this is to ask family and friends, whilst also utilising the wonderful tool that is the internet.

Even though you are trying to save money by not getting your own van and taking out a months van insurance, you also shouldn’t just opt for the cheapest individual because in this world you generally get what you pay for. Always take quality over cost.
