Planning a Lockdown House Move in Hampshire? Then Hire a Van with Us!

Collisons can ease the pain of a lockdown house move for anyone in the Waterlooville area, providing top quality moving van hire with a service that we’ve made as convenient and safe for our customers as possible.

House moves are one of those things you sometimes have to do, lockdown or no lockdown. In fact, during 2020, nearly one million house moves took place. Professional vehicle hire services like ours have always come in handy during those big life moments. Whether you need a rental vehicle for use at work or at home, our range is renowned for providing the affordable and convenient solutions customers need to get on with things! So why should that change in the midst of a pandemic?

At Collison Vehicle Rental, we’re still open and now provide a fantastic contactless service to ensure everyone stays safe and you get the vehicle you want whatever the occasion. Those planning a lockdown house move will find our contactless van rental service particularly accommodating. In this blog post, we detail exactly why van hire works for house moves, especially during lockdown.

Save money on removals

Purchasing a new property is an expensive business so we understand the need to cut costs as you make the move to pastures new. By choosing to hire a van you don’t have the extra expense of hiring a full, multi-man removals service. Thanks to van hire, the cash you save can be put towards turning your new house into the home you’ve always dreamt of.

Keep complete control

Trusting a stranger – even a professional removal company – with your treasured items isn’t easy. You can only hope that they handle your belongings with the same care and attention you do. Instead of taking this risk, why not keep control of your house move?

By hiring a van from us you can take charge of the entire process, including packing, loading and unloading. You can also plan the move with your unique needs in mind, for example making time for multiple journeys, and picking up other items from storage if necessary. In addition to this, you can strategically organise trips so there’s no waiting around for your mugs and kettle to enjoy a well-earned cup of tea on moving day!

Do it in your own time with flexible moving van hire

There’s nothing more chaotic than a rushed move. Completing a task as important as a house move in record time will only lead to doubts about whether you’ve packed everything and organised your belongings the right way to make it more convenient at the other end.

With van hire, there’s no rush. You hire the van for a set period of time and enjoy greater flexibility as a result. This is great news if, like many house movers, you’re having to juggle moving out with work and family life.

Move house in Hampshire easily – even during lockdown!

The way we go about our everyday lives has no doubt changed since lockdown commenced but that doesn’t mean you have to put your house move on hold. Whilst friends and family members outside of your household will no longer be able to assist you with your house move due to social distancing measures, you can take full control of the moving process and save money too!

Hire and use a van that suits your moving requirements even whilst isolating with our vehicle rental service. As we mentioned previously, our contactless moving van hire service ensures social distancing rules are abided by strictly from start to finish. We understand that life can’t stop, even during these challenging times. With this in mind, all the paperwork required for rental is completed digitally and payment taken over the phone to ensure a fully contact-free experience. Hard copies of documentation are also available upon request, handled by a team member with gloves and left in a safe place for your collection.

Our team members wear gloves throughout the rental process, particularly when handling and preparing each and every one of our rental vehicles. Keys and steering wheels are also deep cleaned before handover and on return to keep our customers, staff and wider community safe.
