OUR VANS - Unless otherwise agreed we choose the size of van for you. We can provide a Luton with a tail lift. This is an old fashioned style of van associated with moving. We still have these but are moving more towards more Morden and practical alternatives. We would recommend a long wheel base high top. Particularly for local moves were additional trips are possible. They sit lower on there frame which eliminates the need for tail lifts. They are easier to navigate in small roads and have very similar size loading capacities. (2 Cubic meters difference) It is also safer for your items. For an assortment of reasons, Which our staff can explain if you wish. (Additional trips are often included at no additional charge on property moves.

Between old style Luton’s with tail lifts and new low loader Luton’s as well as LWB vans.


INSURANCE - When using our 1 man services there are a different set of rules.

We except liability if items are damaged in transit. But if a customer is helping the driver load or take an item(s) out of Or into a property/ van and damage occurs during loading/ unloading we will in normal circumstances not take liability. If you have 2 of our trained operatives. Or a team then we except liability as normal. The 1 man services are a cheaper option that we offer. We have to minimise our risk to be able to offer this.
