We all had situations during our lifetime when we either had to move completely or to transport something that is large and heavy. At first, moving on your own may seem the best way to do it. However, it can be really stressful, tiring and hard to coordinate. That’s why some of us usually choose to hire a man and van service, simply because it is faster and more reliable.
However, what we usually don’t understand is the price of the service. We wanted to give you an insight into all the factors that affect the price of a man and van service. Hopefully, in the end, you’ll have a clearer picture of our pricing system.
Price Guide for a Man and Van Service
There are many facts to consider regarding the prices of a man and van service. Some might be familiar or too obvious, like insurance and fuel. Others are something that we might often overlook. In any case, they are a vital part of every moving process. So let us take a closer look and see what they are.
Amount of Furniture That We’re Transporting
This one seems quite obvious. Simply, if you have more furniture, it will take more time to load it, transport it and unload it. Also, our helpers usually work on disassembling and assembling your furniture, so we have to take their time and effort into consideration too. So basically, the more furniture you have the more work involved and more expensive the service will be.
The Characteristics of Your Furniture
Not all furniture is the same – that’s why we always make sure to know in advance what type of furniture you need to have transported. Different pieces require different handling, and not to mention that some of them might need more people in order to get them to your desired place in one piece.
What’s more, some types of furniture will require specialised professionals who know how to handle them. For example, pianos can’t be transported just by anyone, especially since they are very expensive and can be easily damaged if not handled properly.
This is closely related to the amount and the size of your furniture. The more furniture you have or the bigger it is, the larger the van you will need. Such vans are more expensive because of their fuel expenses and cargo capacity.
If you use Kiffgo man and van service, you should know that everything you transport is always insured. That’s one of the ways that we guarantee the safety of your cargo and insurance always affects the total cost of transportation.
Time Is Vital
Time usually plays a significant role when forming a price. On average, a move will last about six to seven hours. However, that is not always the case, and thus, we usually tend to form the price based on the amount of time a certain job will require.
The Distance that We Travel
Finally, this is maybe the number one thing that our price is based upon, alongside the size of the furniture. The further your move, the more it will cost. There are two main things that play an important part in this, and that is time and fuel. So make sure to give us a call, and we will do our best to estimate how much your move will cost.
