Don’t Hire A Van…Hire A Man With A Van

Edinburgh Van Man

Some people are under the illusion that hiring a self-driving van and moving their possessions themselves is a cheaper and better way to move. We recently checked out the cheapest self-drive van deals in Edinburgh and were surprised at how expensive they are.

The cheapest deal we could find was a 4-hour hire for a Ford Transit size van for £40. You would then need to add, say, £10 for diesel. So you would pay £50 minimum for only 4 hours. Add to this the effort in booking this van as the company I looked at had no website?? You need to pick up the van yourself. Do you get public transport to their premises or do you take your car and try and find a parking space? You then must lift your items into the van and pack the van properly. Do you live in or are moving to a 3rd floor flat? Are you willing to injure yourself moving heavy objects? Can you do it yourself or do you need help from family and friends? Hassle Hassle Hassle.

Alternatively, you could call Edinburgh Van Man or visit our website a send us a quick email. For very little more money, we will pick up your possessions and deliver them safely at a time that suits you. We are fully insured and have disclosure Scotland Certification. Don’t hire a self-drive van. Hire Edinburgh Van Man.
