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.
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
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
Needed to move a few items from North London to beyond the M25. The van was in excellent condition, the price was extremely reasonable and the entire service was personable and efficient. I thoroughly recommend this company.
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!
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.
A brilliant, timely, hard-working, friendly, knowledgeable team. Really did an excellent job on our house move, kids even had fun sitting up front in a lorry each! Thank you all so very much!
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!
Flat move went swimmingly thanks to Best Van & Man!
Just to confirm, the man did a great job and was very quick – we were done in 1.5hrs!
Many thanks for the help and great service!
Best wishes, Gabriel
Superb company and to top it all a really nice bunch of people!

The guys did a great job on Saturday.
Thanks very much - Will definitely use and recommend you again.

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!
I couldn't have chosen a better company to have done the move! Really grateful for everything!
Have recently moved to London for work purposes and the company I work for hired Best Van & Man Removals to carry out the transfer, I was pleasantly surprised at their professionalism and would certainly like to recommend them to anyone!
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
Hi Steve, Yes they were great - very efficient! Would definitely recommend to others.Thanks,
Thanks for all your help today.
The guys were great.
The move was brilliant thank you all for your excellent work!
Dear Steve, Thank you for the wonderful experience in moving my stuff today 18.01.13 in the snow with your new van from London to Somerset. You are a star and i will use your business cards to recommend you to all my friends and colleagues in London.
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 know it was my own fault giving the wrong address :/ but thank god your couriers are contactable... Thank you again.
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.
I am not only grateful for your gallant efforts but are equally impressed with how immaculately clean your vehicles are maintained. All the best.
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!
As promised! A BIG FAT THANK YOU for your had work and last minute dash! To anyone reading this, there courier service is by far one of the best I have used, no nonsense updates as well, the chap called once he was in-front of the person signing at the other end, now that is live coverage for you!
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
You guy's are brilliant! I'm shattered but are amazed that you had my new office up and running first thing this morning.
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!
Thank you so much for your help on Sunday! You guys were the best man and van, that's for sure!
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
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!
Thank you Steve, you really saved the day! I cannot believe the other company didn't show up or return any of my calls.
Hi the Best Van & Man team, it was a real pleasure having booked you for our move.
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.
I wanted to thank you for the excellent service.
The team you supplied worked really well and i just wanted to say thank you.
Had some fragile pieces of furniture requiring moving and got three people in to take a look, cutting a long story short, the boys at Best Van and Man seemed to know what they were talking about, gave them the job and was very satisfied!
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 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.
I was recommended to Best Van and Man by a friend to use for my office move, the guy's had a very good understanding of how to move specific and delicate items. Very happy with the all round service!
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
Really happy with the great job you all did! Thank you.
As is states on the Tin: "A professional service!" Thank you Steve and the team!
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
What lady doesn't enjoy watching men work! Thoroughly enjoyed the move and thank you for all of your help.
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!
Best by name and Best by nature, a really cracking lot and extremely helpful! Will certainly use again but not too soon I hope, one move is enough every few years!
