Britannia Cestrian Removals Vs Man and a Van

Chester removals: why you need to hire the professionals…

When it comes to the process of moving house in Chester, it seems that there are three options available for your removal needs. Obviously, you can choose to go it alone, taking on all of the packing yourself and moving your belongings in your own car or a hired van (which will probably involve several trips back and forward between properties – yikes). Secondly, you might decide to get some extra help from a ‘man with a van’, who will mostly assist with the transportation of your belongings for you, but likely nothing else. Or thirdly, if you’d prefer for the experts to take control and make the process as stress-free and safe as possible, then you have the option of choosing to hire a removals company, just like us at Britannia Cestrian.

We’re here to tell you why the third option of choosing us to help with your big move is an absolute no brainer…

Unrivalled experience and professionalism

With a man with a van service, it is unlikely that they will have a vast experience of large scale moves and the work that is involved with them. At most, they will probably be more used to helping people move small items between locations, and may, therefore, be better suited to small scale removal jobs e.g. vacating your student accommodation or houseshare. What’s more, there’s a chance they may not have adequate insurance, leaving your items very vulnerable in terms of them not being covered if damaged in transit. This is a massively important factor to keep in mind when moving, as breakages are common when your removal is not handled by a professional company. By using Britannia Cestrian, you can be safe in the knowledge that we have extensive experience when it comes to all different types of moves throughout Chester. From one-bed flat removals to ten-bed mansions, we have you and all of your possessions totally covered. Our staff are not only professional and diligent but also fully accredited and qualified when it comes to removals. Therefore, you can have peace of mind that your belongings are in the hands of trained experts who will use their knowledge and experience to handle your things with the utmost care. Furthermore, you’ll be happier still to know that our service also includes full insurance coverage in the unlikely event of any damage – what a relief!

A Bespoke Service

As helpful as they are, a man with a van basically does exactly what it says on the tin. Someone to help carry your boxes into their vehicle and get them from A to B. Here at Britannia Cestrian our service is so much more than that, as we offer tailored removal plans giving you a personalised service for your every moving need. If required, we take care of everything from packing to logistics to unloading and unpacking your items in their new place at your new home, should you also need help with this.

Our service is truly comprehensive and our experts, quite literally, do all of the heavy lifting for you. We even provide you with meticulous inventories, so you can be sure every single item is accounted for and arrives safely.

Value For Money

Most people choose to use a man with a van because of the perceived low cost. While it’s undeniable that this type of service is usually cheaper than using a fully qualified removal company – you should also be aware that you may not get the quality of service that you actually require. With a removal company, the cost that you pay reflects the experience that the team has, and also the professional service that you will get. You should also take into account the amount of money you may save not having to replace or repair any items that may become damaged with using a van service, not to mention any damage you may cause to your new house, or even psychical injury, should you choose to unload items on your own. We believe that you get what you pay for, and when it comes to moving, you simply can’t put a price on reliability, safety, and peace of mind.

Time-Saving and Stress-Free

Although we’d all love to get everything done quickly, moving house takes time. From the weeks of laborious packing in advance to the loading of the van, travelling and unloading at the other end – it’s a time-consuming process that can often seem endless. Two of the biggest time and stress-saving benefits we can offer you at Cestrian, that a man in a van cannot, is extensive help with packing and loading. 

Perks of having your packing done: Britannia Cestrian is a professional removal company, helping people move every single day, so it’s fair to say we’ve got it down to fine art! If you’ve ever moved yourself you’ll know how long packing takes – sometimes weeks on end, especially if you are fitting it in around full-time work or taking care of the kids. Think about how much time and energy you could save by leaving it down to us.

Let us do the loading:  Alsothink about the time it will take to pack and load a small van and a couple of cars, especially if items are fragile to handle (how did the delivery company get that sofa in there again?!) plus the number of trips back and forth, unloading, reloading and all the unpacking when trying to do it yourself – trust us when we say you should leave it to the experts, you won’t regret it!

With moving there are also a lot of other factors that can take a lot of time or cause delays on the big day. You might find there are items of furniture that you simply can’t lift properly, fragile or valuable items that you need extra protection for, or bad weather on the day that you hadn’t accounted for that threatens to damage your goods. Any one of these factors can make your moving day even more stressful, especially if you’ve got new owners waiting outside ready to move in!

Hiring our team of professionals at Britannia Cestrian means that you can leave all of this to the experts who are always prepared for every eventuality. Let us take care of all of the above, no matter what moving day throws our way. We’re committed to planning and executing your perfect move, making sure everything runs totally smoothly and on time.

So there you have it, our top reasons for choosing Britannia Cestrian for your every removal need in Chester, instead of risking it with a van service.
