Hi, my name is Craig. I set up this site in 2008 when I started my own man and van business in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells in Kent.
I've retired now and so have decided to use my website to show you how to find a reliable and honest man and van in Kent who won't rip you off.
I discuss the following topics:
Cheap man and van prices,
How to spot false reviews,
Where to buy boxes,
What size van you'll need
Craig's Man and Van Removals and Piano Moving Forum in Kent
I still network with many other reliable man and van, removals companies and van hire businesses as far as Hawkhurst and Crowborough in the South, all along the A21 trough Royal Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks as far as Otford, Seal and West Kingsdown. Areas West to East that are covered would be everything between Westerham, Edenbridge, Southborough, Tonbridge, Borough Green, Gillingham and as far as the Isle of Grain in the East.
I write about everything there is to know about man and van businesses, including how I started mine. My large 60 page forum also caters for a wider community outside of Kent. This includes information on nationwide deliveries between London, the South East, and Kent and can see it by visiting my-man-and-van.com if you're looking for a service provider outside of Kent. You can also use it if you're looking for cheap backload deals on removals and deliveries between London, Kent and France, Belgium and Holland.
I initially started my man and van business in Maidstone before rapidly expanding to the bordering towns of Tonbridge and Sevenoaks, and then on to Tunbridge Wells.
Within a very short period I had completed well over 2,400 small deliveries and home moves before Craig's Man with Van, or 1ManAndVan.co.uk which is what I was known as, started specialising in daily runs along the A21 and M20 corridors joining London and Kent.
Mine was a very small business which I ran from home. This meant that I was able to offer a more personal and flexible service. This I believe was my secret to success.
I carried out all sorts of specialist removals and delivery work that was not only much cheaper than the larger moving and courier companies, but I also won many contracts from schools, theatre companies, prop houses and local councils because of my reliability and my willingness to network with other small one man and van companies in the area that ensured I never missed an appointment or double booked.
I was also the first man and van business in Kent to advertise my diary online. This meant that people could save as much as 30% on backload deals on ebay deliveries.
I've kept most of my site, including the quote page and my feedback page as it was when I was active as a visual aid to help readers of my eBook "How to Start a Man and Van Business"
