An unprofessional low quality service will have no concern for they shape in which your goods reach their destinations – they simply will be concerned about getting the task over with so they can claim their payment. On the other hand, a professional service, in spite of being small time, will take extra trouble to ensure that the goods are delivered in the same shape as they were supplied.

The first sign of a good London man and van hire is that there prices will be consistent with the market trend: they will not charge very little for the service in the hopes of attracting customers. If you come across a company that is charging a fare well below the market norm, stay away from it – they’re just fishing for gullible people who will dole out their money due to typical consumer psyche. Another sign of a good company is that there vans will be painted with a Logo and will be in good condition (there may be just a couple of them).

A hands on approach to judge the skills of a company’s drivers is to ask them about the routes around the city – this will tell you how familiar he is with the city’s labyrinthine network of roads – in other words, how much he has driven around the city. These simple steps will help you ensure that you get the best value for your money.
