How many moving vans will I require?

The size of your home will ultimately determine the answer, but the typical job only calls for one van. This is due to:

The vans are initially roomy. They have a volume that ranges from 10.5 to 22m3 and can move a lot of cargo in a single trip, especially if it has been packed well.

Even if a removal requires more space than a single van can hold, splitting the job into two legs will cost less than hiring a second van and driver.

What Situations Might Require Two or More Vans?

Longer distance moves typically require more than one van. Instead of making separate trips to and from the old house, both vans can arrive at the new house at once. If so, you can reserve multiple vans, and we'll show up in a convoy.

When residents have different destinations, such as when students move out after exams or couples separate, more than one van may be required. Hiring two smaller vans that can go to different houses after everything is loaded is more practical in this situation.
