First the consignment is carefully loaded and secured in the van. To ensure whatever cargo is being shipped an assessment is carried out and everything is secured before setting off. Van with Man has protective blankets to wrap round any delicate or fragile items as well as cargo straps to ensure the load is fully secure and will not fall during the journey. Consignment bags are also available to contain multiple small bags of belongings together, which also helps peed up loading and unloading at the start and end locations by reducing the number of trips carrying smaller items.

With everything loaded securely we start driving to the first destination in Runcorn shopping city with 7 boxes. Then heading to Wolverhampton Mander centre to deliver 10 boxes before driving to Watford to deliver 14 more boxes.
