How Many Removal Vans Do I Need?

While the final answer depends on the size of your house, the average job tends to require one van only. This is because:

  1. The vans are spacious to begin with. Ranging from 10.5 to 18 cubic metres in volume, they can transport an awful lot of goods in one trip, particularly if they’ve been packed well.
  2. Even if a removal exceeds the capacity of 1 van, it’s cheaper to make two legs with the same vehicle than fork out on an extra van and driver.

When Might I Need Two Or More Vans?

Multiple vans tend to be needed when people move longer distances. The way both vans can arrive at the new home simultaneously, rather than make journeys to and from the old house. If that’s the case, you can book multiple vans and we’ll arrive as a convoy.

Sometimes multiple vans are needed if residents have separate destinations, such as students moving out after exams or couples breaking up. In this case, it’s more efficient to hire two smaller vans that can head to different houses once everything has been loaded.
