At Esaff Removals, we've done our best to create a Web site that anticipates and satisfies our customers' needs. With that goal in mind, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions. If you do not find an answer to your question here, contact us at 08000988312 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are so many Man and Van services out there. What makes Esaff the one to go for?
Esaff Removals has done almost 2000 domestic moves now and all that experience is apparent when we do the jobs. We are also a registered UK company, so you will be treated professionally backed up by good old South African work ethics and friendliness.
What are your rates for a normal size van?
North of the River Standard van rates:
£30-00 for the first hour and £15-00 for every subsequent half an hour
South of the River Standard van rates:
£40-00 for the first hour and £15-00 for every subsequent half an hour
What are your rates for a bigger van?
North of the River Big van rates:

How big is your Bigger van and when will I need that?
The bigger van gives you approximately 14m3 in total. It’s an Iveco Daily Extra LWB. I would suggest you using this van if you are not sure if your goods will fit into a standand van, for if we have to return for a second load with a standard van because everything did not fit in one go, this will normally entail at least an extra hour to the final bill. Rather go for the Bigger van for only £10-00 an hour more. We normally suggest the bigger van if the customer have more than 2 pieces of bigger furniture.
How much more for an extra person to help the driver?
£10-00 per person for minimum of 2 hours.
What are your rates to destinations in Greater London?
Same as Big van South of the River rates as long as we do not exceed 40 miles outside the M25.
What are your National rates for destinations in the UK?

Do you work on Sundays and Bank Holidays?
Yes we do at escalated rates. These rates are £60-00 per hour for a minimum of 2 hours and the additional labour is £15-00 per hour. We only send out the big van on these rates.
Do you work out of normal hours?

We prefer cash on completion, but can except cheques from known customers as well. Electronic transfers will also be accepted if it is arranged before start of the job.
What do I need to know as an Esaff Removals customer?
-Please pack reasonably, remember if you struggle to pick up that box, so will we
-Parking is the responsibility of the customer. Esaff Removals will try our best to park legally but if you are aware of problems we might have with parking, please make the necessary arrangements. If any PCN’s are incurred while we are in the process of moving you, this will be added to the bill at the end of the job.
