That is what we are doing when our property purchase finalises as its going to be about £50 to hire a transit for the day if memory serves.

For £500 I'll hire a van and move it all for you and get it done in a day. :-D

lol



your only down the road from me

yep i would get someone else to hire the van and charge you a price for it (i mean someone you know.) it would be cheaper why dont you take the offer up on here maybe not £500 but hey it will sort your problems wth moving out.

also my fella has his own mercedes sprinter van and he has moved a couple of people before if i remember from memory he charged £250 for the day but obviously if someone else did it for you that didnt have there own van you would be looking at the price of hire on top.

got to remember that these removal places will protect all your items in … got to remember that these removal places will protect all your items in a film / bubble wrap / brown paper so they dont get damaged and also are insured.thanks anyway.



Some do some dont, be sure to check. A lot of places will want everything secure and boxed up so all they actually do is come in move the boxes into the van and unload them in to the labeled rooms on the boxes.

I sent an email round work for recommendations. The guy we went with charged £25 an hour, this was a Saturday too. Took about 3 hours in total.

Moving's hard enough work without doing the physical move yourself.

This is true, some of them expect your possessions to be fully protected etc-takes the blame off them you see if anything breaks.

Moving 5mins is one of the hardest moves you've ever done! We moved to the house next-door-but-one and it was the most stressfull moves, even though everything was within a stones throw. Didn't hire a van of course

I work for a removals firm in Skipton. Price depends on many factors such as packing/no packing, distance to new property etc, but a proper removal company will come round and assess eveything in the property and give you an estimate based on the cubic measure of all your possessions.

my mum and dad got a removal firm few years ago was £150 for a two bed flat-they provided all the boxes for packing and took them away later. I would think if you have a lot of stuff it would cost about £500-but its so much better to have a bigger van with a tail lift that can do it in the one run.

we paid 350 to move a 2 bed 55 miles.

entirely worth the hassle
