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.
Thank you Steve, you really saved the day! I cannot believe the other company didn't show up or return any of my calls.
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!

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
Good afternoon Steve, Thank you very much. Your company Best Van & Man Ltd was a pleasure to use and the three movers were fantastic.Kind Regards,Ulf 25/02/2013
Very pleased with service, was extremely quick from start to finish and everything arrived just as it had left. Thanks again!
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!
As promised and as deserved, THANK YOU! We couldn't be happier! An Excellent all round removal service!
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.
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
Really pleased with the service, really felt I could put my trust into these people, had some very interesting conversations as well! Highly recommend!
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
Flat move went swimmingly thanks to Best Van & Man!
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
I am pleased I took you advice as you saved me money! I really did think I had a lot more to transport than I did!
Superb company and to top it all a really nice bunch of people!
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
Really happy with the great job you all did! Thank you.
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
Moved halls of residence and booked Best Van... really cheap and friendly!
I know it was my own fault giving the wrong address :/ but thank god your couriers are contactable... Thank you again.
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!
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
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
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!
Flat move went seemlessly, was given some really sound advice and guidance.
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

Hi Steve, we should be completing at the end month and will certainly be using you after your sound advice!
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!!
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!
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!
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.
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
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
Haven't had to use many removal companies in my time, but was very impressed with the team and the vehicles were extremely well maintained.
As is states on the Tin: "A professional service!" Thank you Steve and the team!
I am not only grateful for your gallant efforts but are equally impressed with how immaculately clean your vehicles are maintained. All the best.
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!
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.
Brilliant company and people, very happy with the move!
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!
I have used Steve for three separate jobs carrying art work to Kent, Bristol and here in London. It was efficient and pleasant. I will always use this service whenever I need to and can totally recommend them. Thanks, Ted Sumner
Thank you for a very good job.
All went smoothly.
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
Will be using your couriers more frequently after yesterdays example, really excellent Steve, great service!
I would like to thank the Best Van & Man team for making my flat move an easy one. A really excellent service, thank you!
A really super removal company, every effort was made to insure all went without a glitch.
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.
