Man And Van Hire Soho - 5 Five Things You Should Not Forget

27 August 2014

Hiring a man and a van in Soho is relatively easy and straightforward, as long as you remember the main things that affect how successful the whole experience is. If you do not know what things to look out for, this is the article that you should be reading. I will be discussing the 5 top things that you should definitely not forget. By remembering these, you will be able to ensure that your experience is positive and successful.

The first thing you need to ensure is that you plan and prepare. It cannot be said enough just how important planning is if you do wish to have a successful Soho removal. You need to be able to think about all of the factors that affect the success rate of a removal and these are the things that need to be planned for. You need to think about how long it is going to take you to pack and get everything ready. This will give you an indication of when you will be ready to hire your Soho man and van and this is very important. You do not want to hire your man and a van too soon and find yourself still knee deep in unpacked possessions. Similarly, you do not want to hire a man and a van too late and find yourself twiddling thumbs for days or weeks whilst waiting to get your items transported.

You need to remember to provide the Soho removal company supplying the man and a van with information that is as accurate as it can be. They need to know about the days you wish to have them come and transport your items, how many boxes you will have and what their contents will be. Man and van employees may also need to know if you have any antique or very expensive items.

You also need to ensure that you sort out insurance for your removal. Some companies may offer insurance, either in their package or separately (always ask and do not assume). However, some people wish to get insurance for their items from a separate provider – the choice is yours.

Next, you need to remember to pack everything according to the proper procedures, especially your delicate items. Use protective or bubble wrap to make sure that your delicate items are kept safe and are well protected. Make sure that you use sturdy cardboard boxes that are sealed properly once you are done. Label each box to ensure that you can identify all the items in the box and are able to keep inventory. You also need to make sure that you do not over pack your boxes to avoid them from breaking. Also, it is going to make lifting and handling very difficult.
Finally, you should not forget to have the money ready on the day. Some companies ask to be paid in advance, so always make sure that you double check with the company to ensure that you know when you have to pay, and how much you have to pay. You also need to make sure that you know about all of the different methods in which you can pay. Whilst some companies allow customers to pay in cash, with a cheque or even via chip and pin, others prefer cash only. In order to avoid any complication, make sure that you know all of this before the day.

Ensuring that you remember these five points will allow you to have a successful removal and will also allow you to remain calm since you will not have to rush around at the last minute.
