Man And Van: Making Moving A Piece Of Cake

Sometimes it seems that moving house is a headache, no matter how you do it. There’s all that junk to pack, and put in boxes or crates or enormous garbage bags. Then you cram everything and the kitchen sink into a car, a van, or the back of a pick up truck, straining all the muscles in your back in the process.

You drive to the new place, and when you get there, you are absolutely, one hundred percent, exhausted. There’s the house, empty as anything. No place to sit down, no place to lie down, and no way to make a cup of tea to calm your frayed nerves. And then there’s the vehicle, packed to the brim with back-breakers. Nothing for it but to get straight to work, using all that energy you didn’t think you had, straining even more muscles in your back—all the ones, now, you didn’t even know you had.

And then, finally, you are done. Everything is sitting topsyturvy in your house, in boxes, crates, or garbage bags, and you are sitting in the middle of it, an absolute wreck by now. You finally manage to get the couch or a bed right side up, and then you find the tea things after half an hour rummaging. After a hot drink and a bite to eat, you collapse on the unmade bed, and leave the organizing of all the rubbish for the morning.

That’s what moving looks like—without a man and van. The picture is slightly different, however, when man and van come into play. You might be eating breakfast with the family when they drive up. You continue your peaceful meal while they start packing things up in nice, roomy storage boxes. After breakfast you clean up after the meal as usual, and then give instructions about what goes where and how to pack this, that and the other.

The van is packed, and the two vehicles set out from your old house—man and van with all the neatly packed boxes inside, and your own vehicle with just your family and perhaps the dog. You decide to take a detour and stop at a fish and chips place on the way. When you get to the new house, the man and van are just about finished. The moving professionals have got all your things carefully, neatly unloaded. As they finish off, you give some last minute instructions about where you want some heavy items placed.

Then they drive off, and there you are in your new house. But, unlike scenario 1, everything now is neat and carefully organized. You aren’t the slightest bit exhausted; in fact, you’ve done hardly anything all day, and you are feeling quite fresh. You are well fed, and ready to start organizing, unpacking, and making the new place home.

What a difference a moving service can make! Moving house doesn’t have to be a nightmare. In fact, with the right resources it can become quite a pleasant little adventure.
