Although 90% of my man and van work came from the area between the A21 and M20 corridor between London and Kent, even as far as Canterbury in the South, I still offered huge discounts on nationwide backload deliveries as far as 100 miles. Please keep an eye on my Twitter feed to see my updated daily deliveries.
By my 5th year in business I had gradually grown my man and van hire company to include the coverage of all Medway areas of Chatham, Rochester and Sittingbourne and have completed well over 2,400 local deliveries.
Please read my reviews and feedback page.
Towards the end of 2012 I started networking with other reliable small moving companies in Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells. Even though I now use this site as a visual aid to my 33 page downloadbale man and van business plan, to this day I still forward work on to a select few who share my work ethics.
I also tweet all enquiries received on my online quote form to the many other man and van companies that follow me on Twitter. So, I can still help with a convenient one-stop shop to find someone reliable to help you out.
Most man and van businesses are one-man businesses. This means that unless by prior arrangement where you are prepared to pay for an extra porter, your help to carry and load will be needed.
I've built a web page on my dedicated advice site my-man-and-van-hire.com that explains the difference between removals van sizes.
Please check it out.
You will be able to see a picture of all the items you can fit in a large Ford Transit van.
Running a man and van business has taught me that there is an easier and a safer way of lifting, carrying, loading and securing almost anything.
I have plenty of protective blankets and strapping to secure your items in the van.
I also have a piano dolly to make moving an upright piano easy. Although, if you are going to want to move a piano, make sure you have at least 3 able bodied, strong men to do the job. I can arrange qualified piano movers to help at an extra charge.
Most of my customers choose to supply extra manpower to make up the numbers. Please also note that I would ONLY ever move upright pianos to and from ground floor properties.
In 2008 I started my man with a van company in Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge in Kent.
I rapidly progressed from humble beginnings, offering a simple part-time "van with a driver hire" service, to becoming a full time self employed professional man with a van business that focussed on delivering superior levels of customer service.
It's because of this that 1ManAndVan.co.uk grew into one of Kent's best known and most popular bespoke, same day courier and small moving companies. I've done all I can to steer my business away from the blemished reputation that the common "Man and Van" business has by specializing in time sensitive collections of larger eBay items, as well as small moves where people require someone with a proven track record of reliability and a friendly 'Can Do' attitude. I never offered the "cheap as chips" cut-price man and van service that so many in the area were doing.
