Most Man with Van Businesses offer a FREE Ride Along Service 


Offer your eBay clients the opportunity to ride along to help load and also to pay for their large purchases in cash.

A Ride along service also helps students and single parents move small amounts of furniture and personal belongings and at the same time save on transport costs.

In 2008 I started my man and van company called Since then I have completed well over two thousand local deliveries, mostly fragile freight, and many eBay deliveries as well.

No Obligation Man and Van Quotes for ALL Fragile Item Transportation in Kent


I have the correct equipment for all types of removals and deliveries. I have piano dollies, slings, ramps and I carry a copy of my Goods-In-Transit Policy. Please read my reviews.

man-with-van-quotes was set up in 2008 with a focus on providing a reliable Man and Van service in Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Many people still arrive at my website, over 2 years after retirement as a result of searches for local man and van companies in Kent, so I will hopefully be able to combine valuable information for all types of visitors to my man and van site.

When you start a Man and Van company you're able to provide much cheaper quotes, not only for smaller deliveries such as eBay collections or single fragile items where you'll compete against courier companies, but you will also be cheaper than most larger home removals. (Except on the very rare occasion where you are not able to beat prices a nationwide move where a larger moving company is able to offer very cheap backload deasl. However, it must be said that many man and van businesses in Kent also offer huge discounts on backloads. If you look at my Twitter feeds, you'll see that I try and re-tweet man and van backloads for other local man and van busineses and also many new man and van business start ups)


Man with a Van hire is also far more convenient than van rental.


There are a handfull of very good local man and van companies in the Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Maidstone area of Kent where I used to work that have the correct equipment to offer a safe piano movers service. In fact I myself started a very successful piano moving company off the back of my small man with a van delivery company.


Most also provide different levels of service to cater specifically for their clients requirements such as a choice of hiring 1, 2 or 3 men to help carry and load, or you can hire a simple 'van with a driver service' for those who would prefer to do all the manual labour themselves and ONLY require a driver with a van.


Most man and van companies in Kent and Medway have built a solid reputation as reliable, trustworthy  small service providers in the surrounding areas in the triangle between the towns of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and Maidstone.

I now use this site as a Reference Guide designed to provide other small businesses with a visual aid to what has worked for me when building my site. I have kept the keywords and the layout as I had it when I ran my man with van business before retirement.
