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.
Got 20% off my student move and a free ride home! Really nice man, had good conversation on my way home.
Thank you for the help! I was impressed with you!
The movers came on time, helped move all the items very quickly and were polite and helpful!
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!

These guy's are awesome, seriously, workedthrough the night to get our new offices up and running for the staff that following morning. Now that is service for you!
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
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 not only grateful for your gallant efforts but are equally impressed with how immaculately clean your vehicles are maintained. All the best.
Dear Steve, Thank you for being so reliable and helpful this morning. We have been let down by another man with a van in London yesterday but you proved to be a reliable and honest. Hafiz
Just a quick note to say how great your guys were today. I was really impressed how polite, careful and hard working. I will definitely be using you again when I get my goods out of storage in 2 months. Thanks again. Steven 18/08/2012
Many thanks for your help with the move yesterday - we will definitely be contacting you when we find somewhere new in March!
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!
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
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!
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!
Brilliant company and people, very happy with the move!
Dear Steve, Thank you for being so patient with the delivery of my brand new sofa from CSL on 22/12/2012. You are a star, without You i woudn't have had my new sofa on time for Christmas. Avril

Great courier service! Was at my house within 15 minutes of my calling, gave me confidence seeing him turn up in a spotlessly clean vehicle with all the right packing materials. Certainly will be using again.
Thanks for all your help today.
The guys were great.
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.
As is states on the Tin: "A professional service!" Thank you Steve and the team!
Really pleased with the service, really felt I could put my trust into these people, had some very interesting conversations as well! Highly recommend!
Hi Steve, Yes they were great - very efficient! Would definitely recommend to others.Thanks,
Dear Steve,Just wanted to say how pleased we are with the service provided by Best Van & Man. The mover was courteous, friendly and efficient and the move was very easy. We’ll certainly recommend your company, Thanks and regards,Pawell Larsson
Steve, You and the 2 guys that moved me yesterday were great.You arrived at the exact time and waited for me for 5 min for i was running late and conducted the move in a brilliant way.Thank you very much.You are the best man and van i have used so far. 19/01/2013
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!
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
I would like to thank the Best Van & Man team for making my flat move an easy one. A really excellent service, thank you!
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
Very pleased with the courier services supplied so far, an excellent, knowledgeable and genuine bunch! I highly recommend them to anyone!
Just wanted to say, those chaps you sent me last week to help move, were excellent!! You are best men and van!
Mr Crispin Green
I would like to express my best wishes for success to your company as i can say the 3 guys who worked on our move today were fantastic. The move went smooth and Paul was very helpful, they were brilliant as. Roy 26/05/2012
Hi Best Van Team, I would like to thank you for all of your help and for checking in on me when I seemed to have got lost in traffic. Really great Company and people!
By far one of the best man with a van services I have used so far!
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
It would normally seem funny writing about how good a removal went... but I have to say I was actually very impressed. When we got to the house, my wife and I were in panic with everything, but the boys, discussed all and organised us and the house, outstanding work!
More than happy with the move! Thank you and all the best!
Excellent service! Will defo. use you again!
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!
I wanted to thank you for the excellent service.
The team you supplied worked really well and i just wanted to say thank you.
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.
An excellent service from and excellent removal company! What more needs to be said, other than the fact Steve and his team are brilliant! :)
