We set up business over 7 years ago after having moved our family friends on their shoestring budget from their apartment in East Dulwich to their new home in the West End of London, a few friends and I offered to help with the move, and as you can image with our fear of potentially damaging our friends’ years of sentimental items in transit (and with the added fact we were dealing with, lets say a rather stern friend), our meticulously attention to detail was by no means impeccable. We made sure to measure the items and calculate the cubic capacity we need before hiring the vehicle, making sure that not one item was incorrectly wrapped, packaged, boxed or placed, I reckon that if a nuclear bomb had gone off not one item would have moved out of place or been damaged. Anyway they were so pleased with the move that unknowingly to us (and despite the fact we were all in permanent jobs at the time) we were recommended out by our friends to their friends, which surprisingly, through their networking generated a vast amount of interest, requesting our services.
Having originally kept our full time jobs we decided to work the weekends for the extra money, picking up and delivering peoples’ items, literally doing back to back removals from first thing the Saturday morning to last thing on the Sunday night, with those happy customers recommending us furthermore, it was literally like an overnight pyramid effect, one person tells three people, those three people then tell others and so on, we basically had more potential customers than we had time in the day, well the weekend at least, so it was then jointly decided to set up Best Van and Man Ltd, and since that day we have never looked back.
Was initially looking to hire a courier van to do my move myself, however I stumbled upon this companies website and for the difference in price which was not a lot after insurance, petrol etc. I booked them and I am more than pleased that I had! I had definitely underestimated the task at hand. Thanks again!
Flat move went really well, was given some sound advice by Steve. Will use again!
Excellent last minute courier service! Had an item needing collecting from auction which is rather delicate and was extremely impressed with the duty of care taken! Thank you!
An excellent removal company, really know what they are talking about as well as putting words into action. Came around a week before the move to asses. Very professional!
Certainly one of, if not the best man with a van services I have used to date, from the telephone conversation, item inspection to the collection and delivery itself, everything was done in the most professional of standards!
Dear Best Van & Man,
Thank you for your professional attitude and quick reaction when we needed a second van today for our move to Cheltehnam.
You were brilliant and for sure Best Man and van.

Had some furniture I was getting to the auction so really needed someone who knew what they were doing so called umpteen different companies including this one and only Steve recommended coming round to take a look at the furniture well in advance, so that he knew exactly what he was dealing with. It isn't rocket science but makes one hell of a difference.
Hi BV&M thank you for helping by keeping my wife's nerves down during our move, I extremely appreciate it!
Thank you guys for your express quality work. Although i thought we will have to make two trips, your 2 men did it in one trip and under 2 hours.Thank you very much.Vincent, 02/06/2012
Hi Steve, we should be completing at the end month and will certainly be using you after your sound advice!
As promised... THANK YOU!!!! Best Van and Man London are simply the best, couldn't have been happy with the house move from London to Scotland!
I am delighted with the man and van service from HA4 0LP on Tuesday, and immediate delivery to a first floor flat at SE5 8NX. Thank you for your reliability. 29/05/2012
Excellent service! Will defo. use you again!
Thank you for your prompt and very efficient service last Sunday 16/12/2012.
You man and his new VW Van were very helpful and he managed to move us under 2 two hours which was great! Helen
Steve, i used your guys Damian and Josh yesterday and i am honestly surprised how good and honest they were. You can be proud of them both. They are assets to your company.Thank you. Naeem
Got the Best Van team in to do an overnight office move and as we were extremely happy with their work we booked the to move house too! A Great company!!
Your guys who did my move last Wednesday have been absolutely fantastic. The whole process went without problems and on time. Nothing seemed to be too much and was just dealt with in a careful and professional manner. Daniel
You guy's are brilliant! I'm shattered but are amazed that you had my new office up and running first thing this morning.
I am happy to say that Steve and Josh moved our stuff from our Shurguard storage in Streatham to our new house with ease and by being polite, hard working and experienced, we felt our move went absolutely hassle free for us. Thank you. 01/03/2013
Had the guys over initially to look at my items to move into storage and ended up booking the to do the packing as well as protecting the larger bits. They gave me a huge discount on the whole lot and I have to say I wouldn't of done anywhere near as good a job as they had. Worth every penny!
A big fat thank you! As promised! Your advice has made this whole moving process that much easier, colour coded boxes and floor plan mix is a huge winner!
I am writing to thank you and your team for moving our flat. I used you cleaning services in the summer and I was sure that your Man And Van service will be great. Your efforts are much appreciated.
We have used Best Man and Van for a number of our office moves and have been extremely impressed with the teams knowledge and
understanding of our equipment and its re-wiring, would have taken us many hours longer to have got the job done ourselves.
Many thanks for your help with the move yesterday - we will definitely be contacting you when we find somewhere new in March!
I think we were pretty lucky with the traffic, but regardless that move was quick, we have even nearly finished unpacking everything after you sound advice!

Hired Best Van to move my dear old mum from her old house to her new flat, the boys were really charming and caring towards mum who is nearly 90, made her feel completely reassured!
Thank you for very much for providing a Man and a Van. Moving me on Friday was wonderful and you are the Best Van and Man.
Very pleased with service, was extremely quick from start to finish and everything arrived just as it had left. Thanks again!
Booked "Best" to move me from halls of residence, got a big discount and as I was happy to help packing, there was a free seat for me to get a lift home as well! How cools that!
I think you handled my move from Greenwich to Aberdeen in Scotland in a perfect manner and I am very happy we got that sorted out but Lisa was also very grateful that You could do it on such a short notice as well... Thank you! Regards, Steven Wood 31/03/2014
Thank you, your have removed all the stress from me, it was the easiest and the fastest removal and delivery and I have never even expected the kind of service i have received from you. Thanks again. Steve 11/04/2013
Dear Getlemen, Thank you for your hard work you put for me on 28/12/2012. It wasn't easy, i admit having to move me with my 58 boxes down two flights of stairs and then up two again. But you were brilliant - fast, safe and professional. Marc
Got 20% off my student move and a free ride home! Really nice man, had good conversation on my way home.
As promised and as deserved, THANK YOU! We couldn't be happier! An Excellent all round removal service!
Really pleased with the service, really felt I could put my trust into these people, had some very interesting conversations as well! Highly recommend!

I thank you for your efforts this Friday for a man & van hire to help with a domestic move from SW14 to CR6. I anticipated that the total time required would be 4 - 5 hours.It was done in 3.
Please send my regards to the 2 men with a van from Saturday's move. In addition, my old flatmate is also looking to use your service after she saw how impressively quick and easy you made my move seem.
Thank you,Kind Regards,Michelle
Thank you so much for your help on Sunday! You guys were the best man and van, that's for sure!
And I thought I was organised. Definitely the right decision to have got you to do the packing, think we would have ended up with half of our belongings broken had we of done it!
Your a savour! I would have certain lost some sales if you couldn't have lent a hand.
Had a good clear out of my storage unit and had a whole load of items going up for sale, so hired Best Van... and they came round to my unit prior to collection to insure the best means of transit, extremely professional and will be recommending to friends!
Thank you! Bob Christensen
Brilliant flat moving advice on your website, really helped me throughout the whole process, I would advise anyone who is moving to take a look, these guy's really know what they are talking about!
An excellent service from and excellent removal company! What more needs to be said, other than the fact Steve and his team are brilliant! :)
Best Van and Man did an incredible job for us, very professional and friendly. Will be sharing with others.
