Now that you've decided to hire a man with a van to help you move house or office, it is important to do a little forward planning to ensure you get the best service you can. Obviously you don’t want to pay for their first time longer than is necessary, so you should consider things like rush hour traffic when you book. Certain parts of London are always busy, but other parts are only busy only at certain times.
You should consider the routes you will take to get to your destination. Your driver may have his own opinions on this and you can discuss this on the day. Forward thinking can help you avoid traffic build ups, roads closures and even, if possible, any congestion charges that might occur.
You should know the best place for him to park at both the start location and the destination you are going to. Remember that heavy furniture will be carried to and in from the van, so parking as close as possible is advisable. Remember also that somewhere that seems a suitable parking place at one time or on one day, might be completely unsuitable on another. It’s very important to be aware of this factor as the suitability of parking can alter throughout the course of the same day.
It is a good idea to talk with your neighbours beforehand and ask them to keep the space you have chosen clear on the day of the move. You might also want to check that paths are clear of obstacles. If you share a garden with a neighbour who has a dog, they might want to keep the dog indoors.
