Frequently Asked Questions about our cargo van moving service:
What kind of CARGO VAN(s) do you have?
We own 10 Foot Full Size Cargo Vans (a.k.a. Panel Vans). They are the same cargo vans you can rent at U-Haul or Budget. Still lost? Okay, like a "white van" that you see driving around the Boston area. Ie. A plumbers van, or any work van. Ours are the similar except they are stripped inside of stuff, except for 2 seats up front. We have roof racks to put BEDS and BOX SPRINGS on top of our van to save space inside the van. They almost ALWAY GO UP ON TOP. We have U-Haul Mattress bags for sale for $6.00 to protect your bad from getting dirty or scuffed up while being transported!

How much stuff will fit into your van?
We are usually able to move a small studio or 1 bedroom apartment in one van load. It all depends on how many big items you have. Our vans can fit a lot of stuff! Probably, a lot more than you would think. We can almost always fit a bedrooms worth or furniture in a load. If you have a sofa or futon that will usually fit with a bedroom worth of furniture. In cases that are tight we suggest to put your mattress and box spring on the roof of the van to open up more space for your stuff. We carry mattress bags to protect your mattress from getting soiled.

Does Man With A Van Moving do packing?
Nope! We pack the van but not your stuff. That's your job. We just move it. Check out this link we make up with packing suggestions. A good packing job assures that nothing will break while in transit. It's best to pack heavy items like books and records in SMALL BOXES. Also fragile items like dishes and glass should be packed carefully and well labeled! Anything that needs special care should be brought to our attention when we arrive. Like glass table tops, pictures, CPU's and monitors. We also appreciate that on the date of your move you try be packed when we arrive so we can see all of your items and get started right away.
What happens if you can't fit my furniture in one load?

Please tell us all of your items you are moving when booking.. there is a good chance we can tell from just looking at yur list that it's gonna be 2 trips! And, we'll tell you! If you are moving a far distance, esp. out of town, this can be a issue...
