I'm shortly moving to SE1 from North London and am looking to hire someone to help move my stuff. It seems cheaper to pay someone else to help for a morning rather than hire a self-drive van for the weekend (most hire companies other than share schemes with membership fees only seem to do weekend hires).
Cheapest I have found is a company which drives to you with a transit van, you load yourself, they drive with you on board to your destination where you then unload yourself. That works out at about £60 with 30 minutes loading/unloading at either end.
Has anyone used a similar service that they would recommend?
You should try Big Van you can call Graham on 07956 847 809. We have used them 3 times now and it works out not much more than van hire- but they load/unload as well. They are reliable and quick.
Not connected etc....
A company called Rocket Van recently collected some items from me (a settee and chairs now gracing Southwark Playhouse bar) and they cost £50 an hour with a minimum 11/2 hours time (i.e. £75). They seemed good! Tel: 07809 601500
