Man and Van In London

Firstly, it’s good to know that a company can offer a solution that is appropriate for your needs. Our removals service in London caters for both big and small moves. For smaller home removals, we have a more streamlined option using 3.5t Luton vans. They are the perfect size for flat share moves and moving smaller quantities of delicate items. In fact, this size of van works equally well for most property sizes, big enough to fit the amount of items from an average two-bed flat. However, they’re not so big that it becomes a challenge manoeuvring around London.

Please note that our man and van service in London is just suited to large home removals as it is smaller properties. We also cater for delicate items including antiques and art.

After all, our London man and van removals work is:

  • 5 star rated
  • Always careful
  • Delivered by a polite and friendly team

Why We Like Moving In London

As Londoners know, the capital city is one of the most vibrant and diverse places to live in the UK. Even people who are moving to London from other big cities, such as Glasgow or Birmingham, for example, know that London has something special. It is the most populous city in Western Europe, after all!

In addition, London has a cultural life like no other city in the UK. For example, where else could you find so many theatres in one place? It is not just the West End, either, but the number of performance venues you find throughout the city. The same goes for music venues, stand-up comedy shows and every other type of live entertainment.

Even better, London has some of the best housing stock in the South-East. Whether you want to live in an urban apartment in the City of London or a detached family home in a leafy suburb, the capital has it all! Overall, we like London relocations because:

  • The city is full of history with some of the best-known landmarks in the whole country.
  • The cuisine is so diverse with Chinatown in the City of Westminster being a particular favourite.
  • The public transport network, especially the Tube, is among the best in the UK.

  • Quality boxes
  • Wardrobe boxes available

House Clearances in London

These days, house clearance work can be quite specialised. This is certainly the case if a property hasn’t been maintained properly for some time, for example. However, the team at Volition Removals has all of the know-how to conduct London house clearance work professionally no matter the circumstances. If you need a house clearance in the capital, then there’s no better firm you could turn to.

Art and Antique Removals London

Handling art and antiques takes special care. In common with our London removals jobs, Volition Removals provides expertise with the moving and handling of one-off items, such as paintings, for example. We know exactly what to do when loading and unloading art and antiques, including some by well-known artists. We’ve even been asked to move an original Damien Hirst in the past, for instance.

Student Moves London

We undertake plenty of student moves in London. Of course, London is home to some of the most famous universities in the country. What’s more, their campus sites can be found in just about every borough. This means an affordable service for students is often called for throughout the whole of the city.

Flat Pack Assembly London

These days, seemingly all furniture needs to be assembled at home. Of course, we put together lots of flat pack furniture when we conduct house moves in London. Therefore, if you want a reliable assembly service for furniture you have just bought, booking Volition Removals to do it for you is a good idea.

Book Your Parking in Advance

What might appear like a small move can be worse because of a lack of parking. With a van next to your property we can get the van loaded and unloaded ASAP, which reduces your costs. It is always preferable to check the parking arrangements before booking. This also helps ensure that our quotes are as accurate as possible. Even if you get the chance of a last-minute man and van booking, parking is still important! Make sure you have it checked before booking if you can.

London Moving House Checklist

The Volition Removals moving house checklist is a useful document to read prior to moving to London. For instance, it will advise you on the steps you ought to take in the run-up to your move. Furthermore, it contains helpful advice about what your priorities on your moving day should be. Feel free to use the checklist to help your London move go well. However, remember that you can always ask us any specific questions you might have about your move, too.

London Removals FAQs


How much notice do removals companies need for London relocations?

Depending on availability, removal companies can be booked up to and on the day itself, although availability at short notice might be difficult. Typically we recommend booking your move as early as possible, a month in advance will increase the likelihood of your move date being available.

How long does a London removals job take?

The length of time will depend on access to the buildings, availability of parking and distance between the pick-up and drop off locations. A rough estimate for a two-bed property assuming a 3.5t Box Luton, a terraced house, with the van parked immediately outside may take two to three hours to load. The driving time between properties – assuming the same easy access at the destination address – would mean adding one to two hours to unload.

Does Volition Removals disconnect washing machines?

We recommend you disconnect your washing machine a day in advance. Our teams are capable in most cases to do it for you. However, this task is outside our normal remit and, in the remote circumstance that any damage occurred, we would not be liable.

How do I prepare for a removal in London?

Have everything packed and ready to go. Notify all domestic service providers you are changing address including council tax, TV licence, utilities and other subscriptions. Book a parking suspension for your removal team and possibly a cup of tea when they arrive.

When do I pay for the London removal service?

With Volition Removals, you pay a small deposit to secure your move and then final payment upon completion of the move.
