Man and Van In Reading
To begin with, a man and van service that is scalable is ideal for Reading residents who want to only spend what they need to for a house move. Therefore, by supplying only as many vans and men as you need for your job, you will not be forking out unnecessary sums for your Reading home removal or house clearance.
The way we work is to figure out what you will need and to charge you accordingly. As result, some jobs need multiple Luton sized vans while others will require only one, small van. Equally, because we know our way around Reading, we can ensure no time is wasted driving your possessions from your old address to your new one. This way, the price you pay is kept as low as possible.
A Reading man and van removal service is suited to many sorts of move:
- End-of-year moves for returning students.
- Home removals of all kinds, from flats to big detached houses.
- Relocations in Reading as well as moves to and from the town from other areas.
How to Book With Us
Booking a Reading home removals service with us is child’s play. After all, all we need to know is the approximate size of the job, the address of the property to be emptied and, of course, where you will be moving to. After that, we’ll confirm our estimate and book you in if you wish to proceed. What could be simpler?
Typically, we will:
- Work out how many men will need to be allocated to your move based on the size of your home.
- Figure out if there are any special considerations, such as weekend moving or one-of-a-kind items to be moved.
- Send you a quotation based on our estimated costs.
- Ask you to confirm your booking only after you understand the potential cost.
- Take a deposit from you. The remainder is only due after the job has been completed.
Why We Like Moving In Reading
Reading is a modern town with plenty of infrastructural investment going on. Nevertheless, it is not a soulless place. In fact, it has been around since the eighth century although some Roman remains indicate it may be even older than that. Consequently, Reading has an historic centre and plenty of older buildings among the new.
For some, the fact that Reading has so many large companies operating from the town is of huge importance. For example, Microsoft, Huawei, Verizon and Cisco all have offices in Reading. Furthermore, there are many smaller companies operating from the various business parks in the town. In short, you can expect many job opportunities in its generally prosperous and thriving economy.
As a cultural hub, Reading has plenty to offer, too. For instance, you will find more than one theatre in the town. Moreover, there is a well-supported professional football club and a popular annual half Marathon. The local bus network is good but proximity to the M4 and M40 motorways makes getting to and from Reading easiest by car. In the end, we like Reading because:
- Paddington to Reading by train takes half an hour, if that.
- The town is close to Heathrow Airport.
- Schools in Reading are good, generally speaking, and there are grammar schools still run in the town.

Art and Antique Removals Reading
Both art and antiques require special attention when it comes to moving them. This is why our professionally run man and van service is a good choice if you need to move yours. Perhaps you have sold an item to a dealer? There again, you might want something heavy moved from one room to another. Furthermore, you might want us to collect an antique you have bought so it can be delivered to you? Whatever your requirement may be, our art and antique removals in Reading are second to none.
Student Moves Reading
Reading is a university town in its own right. What’s more, there are plenty of students who live in Reading who commute to London for their studies. Nevertheless, finding a cost-effective removals service that students can rely on isn’t always easy in the town. Thankfully, Volition Removals’ service is geared towards the needs of students in Reading. Why pay more when you are changing accommodation when a man and a van is all you may need?
Flat Pack Assembly Reading
As a removals firm in Reading, we take flat pack furniture apart all the time. Rather usefully, we are also well-versed in reassembling it. This means that there isn’t an item of furniture we cannot handle. If you have bought flat pack furniture and don’t want to go to the trouble of assembling it, then why not ask us to do so instead? We will do a great job and we can even pick your furniture up for you, as well, if wanted.
Book Your Parking in Advance
If you have a driveway available, then you won’t need to worry about a parking bay suspension. That’s not the case if you only have on-street parking, however. As a result, you will need to book a suspension. Do this through West Berkshire Council, in the first instance. That said, you can also arrange parking permits via Reading Town Council, too, so check with them which you’ll need in your area. The point is to ensure you can get the van as close to the loading area as possible.
Reading Moving House Checklist
As a result of our extensive experience with removals, we have produced a moving house checklist to help people with their Reading house move. It should help you to get to grips with all aspects of house moving. You will find out what you need to do as soon as possible as well as the jobs that will come closer to the actual moving date. Therefore, you should be much better prepared for your move.

Reading Removals FAQs
As a guide, a typical two-bedroom house relocation in Reading that needs one van and two men would take about five hours, depending on how far needs to be travelled. On a weekday, this would mean spending as little as £300 + VAT, or even less in some cases. Small bedsits would be even cheaper and could even cost under £100 + VAT, especially if the properties are reasonably close to one another.
From a legal standpoint, insurance isn’t essential for house moves in Reading or anywhere else. It can be very handy, however. Why? Because without it, you could be liable if someone were to be injured as you move items onto the street. At Volition Removals, we have public liability insurance to cover such eventualities. We also cover your belongings up to £30,000 as standard for accidental breakages although this is seldom needed.
Yes, we can! This is good news if you are out of the country on business, for instance. So long as we can gain access to the properties you are moving out of and into, we will be able to get the job completed.
On the face of it, a self-drive van for a Reading relocation might be less costly. However, you won’t get the same level of manpower or expertise. This can be crucial when lifting bulkier items, for example. Equally, you won’t have to return the van after the move, so you can get on with settling in instead.
The answer to this question is as soon as you know when your moving day will be. For some buyers, this might be when their chain is completed. Equally, it could be on the first day of your new tenancy if you rent. The more time there is to plan, the smoother the job will be. Please note, we can estimate your Reading removals job in advance of your date being set, however.
