A few things to think about before hiring a Removal company/man with a van.
“Are you legal to do removals”?
There’s a question. This will have the illegal’s stuttering when you ask. Some may genuinely not know that you need the correct insurances to work as a man with a van and/or a removal company, but this doesn’t help you when they are pulled over on the road for a spot check and you belongings impounded along with the van, ignorance is no defence.
The legal ones will know about them and will have them.
