If you do have family members or friends to give you a hand, renting a van instead of hiring professional removalists or a man-with-a-van hire can be three times cheaper, allow you to move your belongings at your own pace and in one trip. You can rent the van model and size that fits your needs, and for the period of time that is more suitable for you; for a couple of hours or for over several days. You can then organize your removal more easily and get enough time to pack, unpack, then pack again without the additional pressure of the strict schedule imposed by a professional removalist company. So once you have the van, call a few friends, get the boxes ready, put the cat or the dog in its carrier and let the moving being! For the packing, follow your precious tips in our moving guide.
