Man Van Torquay offers a seriously good and value for money removals service for Torquay, Paignton and the Torbay area. Removals don't get cheaper than this and if you supply assistance, we can supply another man for £25 an hour. We can also supply 2 men for £40 an hour with no extra costs within a 5 mile radius of the centres of Torquay or Paignton. Our vans hold the same as a luton (approx 15m3) and we operate removals both locally and nationally. 1 bed flats generally take 1-2 hrs to move locally, 2 bed properties take between 2-4 hrs to move and larger properties tend to fall within the 4-6 hr bracket. So if some local man and van or removal company are quoting you hundreds of pounds, perhaps you should give us a call!

Flats / 1 Bed Removals

Man and Van Paignton

We love these little man and van jobs! The only problems generally is access. It takes just a bit longer to empty a 3rd floor flat than it does to clear a ground floor flat. As a guide price, local jobs within a 5 mile radius generally take no more than a couple of hours. We charge for the first hour and then on a pro rata basis, so if it take one man and a van 90 minutes, you pay just £37.50!
