Do I Need To Hire An Assistant With A Man And Van?
As we all know Moving house can entail a lot of heavy lifting and some things like fridges and washers will require the hands of two of more people. Trying to lift heavy goods single handed can cause a lot of stress, it can take a hell of a lot longer to get the job done and also it can be dangerous, you may pull a muscle or damage you back. When deciding to hire a man and van you need to consider the following facts before you can determine whether you will require extra assistance. Fact 1Is this a big removal or only a small job? If it’s only a small job consisting of boxes but nothing large of extremely heavy, you may not need the extra help. Having the extra help could get the job done in half the time but if there is no need to pay for extra help, you may as well no bother and instead help out yourself. Fact 2Moving large goods! If this house move entails lifting of heavy sofas, tables, washers, fridges and beds then you will require some assistant. However if you can offer that assistant yourself be sure to tell the removal company this as they may automatically send a third pair of hands and you may end up footing the bill for it. Bear in mind though that a removal company will not allows their workers to get hurt by struggling to lift your items alone, their job is to help you but to not cause any injury to themselves. By trying to cut costs thinking that they will manage, you may be in for a shock if you see them refusing to help. Fact 3How long is the job expected to take?

It’s also worth considering that if you are short on time yourself or maybe you need this house removal to be completed within half a day, it may pay to have those extra hands around after all.Fact 4Why put yourself out?
