You will no doubt have found out, if reading this article, that moving house is an expensive business. With the costs of getting your new place sorted, agency and solicitors fees, you will be looking to spend as little on the moving process as possible, which can often be difficult if you just want to get everything done as soon as possible, so you can forget about the whole darned thing! If you are in a position to be able to just throw a load of cash at the situation and get it out of the way, then you’re certainly in a lucky place, as hiring a full sized Chelsea removals company to get everything done for you is a great way of being a bit more relaxed about the whole thing.

However, if like many of us, you have limited funds and would like to get your hands a little dirty in order to save some well-earned money, then you are in luck, as there are many ways in which to save cash during the move. The main expense during the move will be having to pay for a team of removal men to come and do all your moving and transportation, so avoiding this can save you a great deal. The benefits of Chelsea man and van hire over other removal services lie mainly in the potential reduction of costs, but with the nature of a van man comes the aspect of being able to organize the move around you at a later date, rather than having to book everything well in advance in order to get the best results. By using a man and van service, you retain a lot more of the control, but with this there are flaws as well as benefits, which come from having to organize everything yourself.

Firstly, let’s look at the positives. With a man and van service, you will be able to pay by the hour in most cases, so if you want to reduce the costs of your Chelsea move, you just reduce the amount of time you spend on it. This may sound silly and undoable, but if you think about it, there are ways in which to reduce the time that you are using a van man. Start by getting everything ready to move, so that things are being loaded straight into the van as soon as it arrives. This may mean leaving everything on the street for a few minutes, so make sure that there is someone to look after it while it is in the open. You can also choose to move on a day that is quieter in terms of traffic, so that the journey takes less time.

The negatives of having this flexibility lie mainly in the fact that you are not going to be paying a load of people to do the job, just one. This means that you need to supply any help yourself. You may be doing a small move, and therefore can do most of the lifting yourself, with the van man, so that’s fine. However, if it is a large job, you may need to enlist the help of some friends, which will often mean paying them in some way. You may have good mates who want to help you out for no return, but if you feel like you should pay them in some way then suggest you make them a home cooked meal at the new place, or buy a couple of rounds at the pub. With the saving you will be making, you can afford it!
