Vans Brighton

Posted Posted by Brighton Removals in Blog     Comments No comments

If you are looking for vans in Brighton then you have come to the right place.
If you are looking to rent vans in Brighton then you will want to read this article first.

You have 2 options

Rent a vehicle from someone in the area. There are a quite a few to choose from as there are many companies that rent out vans in Brighton.

Van hire Brighton

Their prices range from £75 plus for the day. This does not include diesel which you have to have topped up before you return the van, minimum £10.

The things that you have to remember when taking this route is that you are not a professional removals person and there is a lot more than meets the eye.

Damaging your things. This article is designed to make you aware of the realities of moving yourself not to scare monger. If you aren’t trained in removals then you are going to put a lot of stress on yourself. This stress turns into fatigue which is when mistakes are made. The victims are your belongings. Your precious lamp that you love, broken. Your prizes guitar, scratched. This does not happen when you hire professionals as they have the resources in place so that they talk care of everything.

Damaging you own items is bad enough but as you don’t drive a removals van every day you have a chance of damaging the van or worse someone else’s property! These carry a high premium. This is how rental companies make a lot of money. They count on you thinking that the job you are undertaking is not as big as you think.

Even in the short term benefits of hiring a company outweigh renting vans in Brighton to perform your removals. Think about it for a minute. A professional who does this every day is going to do it in much less time than you. Don’t you think your time is better pent elsewhere? Either working or organising? The removals company will be in and out before you know whats happening.

Also, all the vans Brighton has to offer in the rental market will not come equipped with the facilities that a removals companies will. A removal companies van is equipped with blankets to cover all of your precious items to stop them from rubbing on anything while in transit. This could be the inside of the van or even another item of yours inside the van.

Straps! A removal van is loaded with straps to lash everything to the side of the van. This way nothing moves. Do you know how to tie a removals knot? As with anything in life there is often an art or at the very leas a ‘knack’ for doing things right.

Cardboard. We carry lots of extra cardboard on our vans so that we can protect everything that we move properly. This also helps when we get almost to the end of a move and the customers have forgotten to box up a cupboard. We have plenty of resources to hand so that you are well taken care of. If you were moving yourself and you’d forgotten to pack a last cupboard what might happen? It would probably be about 10pm at night by the time you were on your last load and no shops were open to buy any more boxes. You would have to use a plastic bag and anything delicate would be a goner.

Option 2: Use professionals

It is certainly worth looking into removals companies who provide a multitude of services including man and van in Brighton and full removals services.

These almost always work out cheeper in the long run (and the not so long run). Rental, diesel, fuel prices, breakages (caused by inexperience), damage caused to buildings and other peoples cars (caused by inexperience driving a removal van) plus the stress of it all. It is bound to take hours and possibly days longer than it would if you were to hire a professional. It’s a gruelling process and it could be the best money you every spend.

We have a range of options for you to see you every possible logistical need.
Our prices vary do you to the length of time you wish to use the man or man and van. Also mileage is taken into consideration. Volume and weight of the goods is another factor that we need to calculate for. Please call for a free quote any time, we operate seven days a week. Renting vans in Brighton can be tricky but with our service there is no need to tell your hair out you may even find that it might be cheaper and quicker to rent a van with a man. Prices start from around £25 per hour or we can arrange a fixed price after we have taken into account all the factors involved in your situation.
We have the best vans Brighton has to offer.
Our removal supervisors / operation managers have years of experience and technique at their disposal not to mention plenty of time behind the wheel of a large vehicle which people normally feel is quite daunting. We are available for corporate moves or residential domestic moves. We have vehicles and expertise to suit any kind of logistical situation. To rent a van from even the cheapest and less reputable companies costs around £80 Per day plus Diesel and plus any other extra insurance you may wish to add. Also, if you do not have as much experience behind the wheel of a large vehicle you could cause damage to the rental vehicle which would result in huge fines.
If you hire us even with just one man you will slash your job time in half most likely. There are no hidden costs. You have none of the liability of the vehicle. You have someone working for you with mountains of experience and a friendly attitude. We would also bring all the necessary tools needed for your job so you wouldn’t have to buy any yourself. Not only will you save money but you will have a much less stressful experience and impact on your life which cannot be measured. You may have experienced this and know what I mean when it gets to 10:30 PM at night and you’re still unloading the second load and wondering why you didn’t hire a man as well as vans in Brighton. It may seem like a shortcut at the time, but it could end up backfiring. With a free no obligation quote you have nothing to lose. If you want to find out more about what vans Brighton has to offer, give us a call any time. Please get in touch via our contact page.

Choosing a removal company

Posted Posted by Brighton Removals in Blog, Uncategorized     Comments No comments

Choosing a removal company in Brighton can be a tricky affair. But with some guidance and a few key points you should be able to find the right company for you.

This should also help you avoid any bad experiences through inexperienced or poorly run companies. There are cowboys out there and sometimes are not easy to spot with the untrained eye.

Contact at least three companies a minimum of two weeks before your move. Study their website well and make sure it looks well thought out and not just slammed together as this will reflect the way they do business.

Contacting them well before your move will ensure that you have the pick of the best companies you find. If you leave it too late you may find yourself trawling through the more lower end removals company Brighton has two offer.

When you are choosing a removal company always talk to the companies at least over the phone. This way you can get a feel for the person and the level of care that they will be able to provide you. You can learn a lot about someone through the tone of their voice and demeanour. Let alone what the are saying or promising.

When choosing a removal company you need to meet them prior to your move. If your move is small then this may not be always necessary but really this would be ideal. Have them come over for a home visit. Most good removals Companies will comply with this. They should also want to see your move so that they are prepared and can give you great service by having the right resources prepared for your move. Other wise your move could turn into a disaster. Don;t be afraid to double check things with them.

Questions to ask them include:

Inquiries regarding insurance.

A) do they have it and B) what does it cover you for?

Most companies will have some kind of insurance but may not cover you in all areas. So if you are choosing a removal company company you must ask “does this insurance cover me from when you come into contact with my belongings until we have unpacked the last box?” It is best to ask this in writing so that you have proof if anything does go wrong later.

Are you insured if you do the packing? As sometimes this is not the case.

C) What time will you arrive?
Always get a definite start time so you both know what to expect.

D) Do you have blankets and straps?
Most good companies will have these to keep everything covered and strapped in during transit. They should also keep extra cardboard and boxes in case the customer might need them. They also come in handy if you wish to protect anything while loading the van.

E) What is the payment method?
It is quite normal for a company to accept payment in cash althoug you should ask for a receipt. Either via email or a physical copy.

F) Does this include VAT?
Sometimes you may be surprised that VAT is not included so be sure to ask at the time. Most of the larger companies will charge this.
When choosing a removal company in Brighton it doesn’t really matter if they do not charge VAT. All it means is that they have possibly been around for longer. For example, we are a limited company that have been around for almost 10 years but we don’t charge VAT. We feel that this extra cost will put people off. There is a big difference when you add VAT.

G) Is this the total cost?
Sometimes there are hidden costs. This does not meant that the company has tried to trick you. They may have simply forgotten to tell you that ‘boxes are extra’ or ‘bubble wrap is extra’

H) Are you expecting them to pack?
Sometimes there is confusion between packing and loading. Most companies will mean loading when the say ‘pack the van’ so just make sure to make the distinction.

I) Ask if one of the men on your job is a supervisor or manager.
If one man is not as experienced on your move this can be fine as long as there is one who is clearly in charge who knows what he is doing.
There is often a management structure within even small companies and you need to make sure that you do not get lost in the system as soon as you have agreed to go with your chosen company.
When choosing a removal company you need to find out exactly who will be in your move. When people book with us we immediately assign them a manager/supervisor who will be in charge. We give their direct line and often this manager will contact the customer direct for a chat and to introduce themselves. This way all loose ends are tied up and everyone knows where they are.

Look at reviews and ask neighbours and friends if they can recommend a removal company. There will often be a friend or relative that has moved recently so it’s always a good idea to go with someone else’s recommendation. If none of these yield any positive results then you can always ask a storage company. They can always recommend a good company, although they may be in cahoots with them and receiving a kick back.

This used to be a cowboy industry where the companies used to be able to do whatever they wished with no comeback. This is because only a certain demographic would want to undertake manual work. Those days are over. generally the companies that you find in the top searches of google will be companies that care about their business and care about their customers.

You will find more and more often these days that people from all walks of life will be involved in removals.
England does not have a huge export industry for our youth to get involved in. Especially in Brighton. Job sectors are limited which means the university graduates are turning to more diverse ways to make money. This is great because it means that the solid of our manual trades are being fertilised with the young eager minds who are keen to work! if we are busy then most of the companies that we recommend are friends of a similar age who have more sensitive business manifestos.

If you are choosing a removal company then ours is the most candid and hard working there is in Brighton. Get in contact now!
