Thinking of Moving House or Office?
Bristol’s university is one of the largest in the South West, and is full of students living in halls of residence and shared houses around the city. At the end of each year, many students move from one residence to another, maybe because their house mates are moving or because halls of residence are for first years only. Cars are seen as an unnecessary expense in a city with such good public transport links, and so moving from place to place can be problematic.
They are often only moving one roomful of items, and so a large removal firm would be overfill, but many van rental firms insist on an over 21 year old or someone with at least 2 years driving experience as the named driver. This is where a man and van service can come in handy for all removals Bristol wide.
Simply Removals Bristol have a fleet of vans and trucks suitable for any size jobs, and their transit vans are perfect for smaller removals including student moves. Their drivers will help you load and unload, and their local knowledge means they can get you to your new and perhaps unfamiliar surroundings in the shortest possible time.

With the large variety of companies available, there is no reason to settle for anything less than a company you 100% trust with your possessions.
