The Small Van
Single room occupancy (e.g. student halls)
Its not just students and parents who love our man and van hire services but doctors and young professionals to.
Maybe that’s beacuse this is where it all began. Back in 2005 we started out by offering a small van and driver willing to journey far and wide to help get people’s posessions from A to B.
So whether you’re travelling to university, a new job or heading home, these vans are perfect for your needs.
As long as it fits within the load bay dimensions (see tab above) we will move it over any long distance on the UK mainland.
Typically, the Small Van we offer will be a Ford Transit Connect, Fiat Doblo or similar. These vans are capable of moving: bags, boxes, and very small furniture items.
You can book just the van and a driver who will help load and unload. You can also book a two person team but that is not often necessary with small van loads, however if you are on the third floor or higher and you don’t have access to a lift/elevator then you may wish to consider the ease of having two people.
Insurance is included with every move covering both goods in transit and our activities in and around your property.
We are based in North Shropshire and are ideally placed to offer long distance services up and down the UK mainland. A popular route for this size of vehicle is London to Newcastle and with an early start we are able to complete this in one day. We are not able to complete a move of any greater distance in one day. We have a limit on how far from base we travel, this means there are parts of the Scottish highlands and islands we can not reach.
Our small van services are subject to a minimum charge of £125.26
Thank you very much for arranging it with such a short notice. I really appreciate it.
We used Student Movers last week when moving from our two bedroom flat in Chester to a house in Somerset. We had originally planned to use a big removal company but the prices were very expensive and the move would have had to have been spread over 2 days, which would have meant staying overnight in a B&B.
However, Student Movers provided us with a very competitive quote, even accommodating our requested 2am start so that the whole move could be done in a day! Both guys were very friendly and helpful and the whole move was very efficient and on time, with everything arriving safely. This is a fabulous service and I would really recommend it for people looking for an alternative to hiring a big removal company.
Student Movers’ efficiency turned a potentially difficult and stressful manoeuvre into a calm and orderly day. All communications prior to the move were accurate and swift. The driver of the van was friendly and helpful, and was exactly on time. The belongings being moved were packed efficiently avoiding any damage. The overall cost was just as quoted and represented excellent value for money. I cannot praise Student Movers highly enough for making my move as smooth and as easy as possible. Thank you!
I used student movers when I was moving offices between Manchester and Cardiff after seeing their website and obtaining a very competitive quote. My e-mails about the move were always answered promptly and efficiently. Although I wasn’t able to be present on the date of the move, at either location, my boxes were moved without problem and arrived safely in my new office. I would certainly recommend them to anyone else needing to move a small load.
Your driver was FANTASTIC, your company service, just excellent — and he needs deserves to be commended for his willing efficient service at both ends, during pick-up and drop-off. We were impressed.
We found student movers by using a search for moving room contents for students on Google UK. The website they maintain is user friendly and easy to navigate. It contains information all about their service and useful links also. We asked for a quote and were given one based on our specification within 48 hours. This was accurate and the price we were charged finally matched this exactly. There were no hidden extras. The communication before the move was first class. On the day the mover arrived on time and was quick and professional. The next day we were in London and the same person arrived at the student residence exactly on time as suggested. He moved all the goods in to the room within 1 1/2 hours and nothing was damaged or missing. We paid for the move then, not before the day, and were provided with a comprehensive receipt. We were moving a lot of goods from Chester to London. It was quick, efficient and great service. I cannot recommend Student Movers enough and needless to say we will use them again in the near future, as we will need their services.

Just wanted to say thank you for a brilliant service. From the start, I felt really reassured and on the day the move went really smoothly.
Chris was great and really helpful. Thank you for making a potentially stressful situation easy.
What a brilliant and faultless service we received from Student Movers and at a really competitive price too.
We told them by e-mail what was to be moved (giving the approximate sizes and weights) and where it was all located. The two very friendly and able men arrived at the two pick-up points (Essex and West London) on time, moved all of the items into the two vans and arrived in Edinburgh when expected. The job started at 8 a.m. and was all completed by 1.30 a.m. the next morning. Student Movers did a wonderful job and we will certainly use them again.

Thank you so much for your efforts yesterday. You really do provide an excellent and much needed service. Liverpool to London all done!
I just wanted to say thank you again for such good service, getting Emma home from Nottingham on Saturday.
A number of people in work have children hoping to start uni. in the next year or two, and I’ve recommended you to all of them. I will definitely use your service in future, when Emma decides where and when she is going to uni. – I just hope it’s nearer next time!
With gratitude and kind regards
Thanks for everything this week.
We are moving boxes Sunday evening from hall to Church at 6.00pm if you are in Nantwich
Thanks again 1380 boxes. Each year we donated the use of vehicles and our time to transport shoe boxes for the Samaritan’s purse Operation Christmas Child. This is a wonderful charity doing wonderful work for underprivileged children all over the world.

I was moved from Liverpool to London by Student Movers in October. They were brilliant! They were friendly but extremely professional and packed all my belongings with real care especially my framed pictures. Thank you very much Student Movers. I will be recommending you to my friends!
Thank you for taking Thea and all her stuff back to Leeds . You are now down as our go to person for student removals ! I have 2 more daughters so foresee years ahead when I will need your help.
Jacob and I just wanted to email you to thank you for helping us in our move and also to say thank you to Chris who was an excellent driver and made our journey down to Norwich a pleasant one. We would definitely use your company again in the future.
Many thanks indeed for your great and very professional service while helping me to move my stuff from Cambridge to London.
I would recommend you to my friends and every body who want’s a hassle free moving experience.
All the best for the future.
Just a quick email to say thank you very much indeed for the service you provided for my move from London to Shrivenham last Thursday.
Chris made the move very easy and was great company during the drive. He is certainly a credit to you and I have already recommended your services to other military movers. Next time you see him, please pass on that I took his advice and now have a Garmin Satnav!All the very best for the future; I hope you go from strength to strength.
Thank you for a fantastic job today, we were all really impressed by the care you took with our furniture, your punctuality – astounding given the snow and ice you have had to get through – and your friendly attitude.
Many many thanks, I hope you are home safely.
Student Movers is amazing!! I got fabulous service at an excellent price – even though I booked at last minute (less than 24 hours notice). The move was well-planned and Matt, the mover/driver, was pleasant throughout the journey. It made what was a rather stressful move much more comfortable for me (Yorkshire to Kent). If you want a professional, considerate and enjoyable moving experience, choose Student Movers. Thank you!
Sian and I were very reassured by the incredibly helpful and professional service we received.
We shall certainly pass the message on to our friends.
Thank you also for the quick responses.
I just wanted to say thanks for helping me move. Moving was a lot less of a headache with you guys helping! I just had a quick question, do you have a facebook page?, i looked but couldn’t see one, as I would like to recommend your services to some of my friends on FB.
Thanks again for an excellent move 🙂
Thank you for bringing Thomas safely home from Canterbury . Please can we book you again?
I booked student movers to relocate from London to Manchester. The communication about my move prior to the collection was super-efficient and I always got a speedy response. It was reassuring to know that I could contact the owner at any time on his mobile should I need to speak to someone. The move itself was effortless. The guys turned up, loaded the van and we got on our way in a matter of minutes. I traveled with the van and the guys did everything to make me comfortable along the way and we had a nice coffee break to break up the journey! All in all a fantastic, professional, friendly service and great value. I doubt youâ€™ll find better. Highly recommended.
