It’s a busy time for London’s housing market, with people and businesses relocating in record numbers every week. The lockdown might be moving towards a less strict phase, but it will have lasting effects, mainly on our collective change in attitudes and priorities. People want different things from their homes, and businesses need to look to alternative ways of working to reduce costs.
If you’re thinking of moving in 2020, it goes without saying that you should only use a reliable company in South West London. Gentleman & A Van is the right choice for domestic and business relocations, and we have an excellent range of services.
If you’re planning to move to a new home in London or you’re a business owner looking for new premises, Gentleman & A Van can create a tailor-made removals service for you. Additionally, we have excellent self storage facilities at our depot in Wimbledon, where we cater to household and business customers alike. We’re adept at handling fragile and awkward items, ensuring they remain in perfect condition during transit or storage.
Gentleman & A Van began life as somewhat of a necessity, after our owner Mark Godman had an unforgettable relocation experience, for all the wrong reasons. The level of customer service was so poor he knew things should be different. And that’s why we strive to complete every removals and storage job on time and to a high standard of excellence.
This singular vision of providing high-quality relocations and related services has taken us through thirteen years of serving the people of South West London. Furthermore, we work throughout the capital due to our reputation for customer care and service delivery. We have over fifty-thousand relocations under our belt, and we continue to gain new customers, often from positive referrals.
A lot of people have heard the term man and van, but it’s not always clear what distinguishes this from any other removals service. The easiest way to work out types of relocation is down to the volume of items which is known as the load. For example, if you’re moving from a two-bedroom city-centre apartment, it’s more likely we’ll suggest our Man & Van service. That’s because the vehicles are smaller and it’s easier to park and load them in populated areas.
This is where our evaluation and quotation process comes into play. It all begins from your first call or email to us, where we gather as much information as possible. For smaller jobs with no apparent complications, we can generally provide a free quotation quickly. However, if we’re not entirely sure of what we’re moving for you, we’ll send over an experienced assessor to confirm the details.
That’s why Gentleman & A Van has grown to be one of London’s leading providers of removals and storage. We listen to our customers and give them the services that match their needs. We can move any object, often from challenging situations. So, if you live on the top floor of an apartment complex, you can have full confidence we’ll be able to handle your furniture and appliances correctly.
Gentleman & A Van’s boasts a 35,000-sq-ft self storage facility in Wimbledon, and we work with domestic and business clients. We have a range of self storage options available, everything from a small locker to 300-sq-ft units. Moreover, we do it all at affordable rates while providing the highest levels of customer service.
Our self storage units are designed and built to make our customers lives easier. We have helpful members of staff onsite to assist with packing and loading your items. They’ll gladly discuss your requirements and questions. And should your circumstances change, we can upgrade or downsize you to another, more suitable storage unit.
Gentleman & A Van Storage has unrivalled access, and you can use your self storage in London unit at any time between seven-am and nine-pm, seven days a week. Every storage unit comes with a secure pin code system, each with unique access combinations, and twenty-four-hour CCTV covers the facility. We can even offer additional insurance if your items are particularly valuable.
Moving to a new house or flat can be a lot like juggling. You catch one thing while two or more tasks are up in the air, ready to fall at any moment. Unfortunately, we can’t just pause the rest of our life while we organise our relocation. There are kids to feed and look after, and most people work now, so there’s rarely a moment’s rest. That leads to mistakes and missing essential tasks, which then crop us to cause an issue closer to the moving day.
Luckily, there’s a way to keep on top of everything, even if you have to move at short notice. A moving checklist is a template to a successful relocation. You can download our list here, which will save you time. But you can also draft your own and add or remove tasks you don’t need. We always advise using a moving checklist and referring to it weekly, just to make sure you don’t forget a crucial step.
Additionally, you can visit our FAQ’s page to go over some questions our previous customers ask us regularly. The Gentleman & A Van team are always available to take direct questions, so feel free to call us or send an email. If we can’t answer your query straight away, we’ll make sure to do so within twenty-four hours.
There’s no one positive trait that sets us apart from other removals companies. But if we were to highlight one, we can tailor parts of our removals and storage packages to create something individual. From the thirteen years of operating in South West London, we know there’s no room for complacency. And flexibility is the answer to every removals or storage job.
Gentleman & A Van has a fleet of removal’s vehicles on standby, making it possible to take on any removals job. We evaluate every aspect of your move, which includes allocating the right vehicle size and number of team members. We also take care of organising parking and checking if there are any restrictions before we arrive at both locations.
This makes it possible for you to take care of the other aspects of your relocation, with the peace of mind we are handling the rest. We’ll keep in contact with you, to make sure everything is on track and to see if you need any advice. Remember, we’re experts and often have answers to questions which aren’t related to removals or storage.
At Gentleman & A Van, we have the ability to take on any removals and storage job. And everything we do starts from the foundation of correct assessment and attaining complete customer satisfaction. We use the mantra – a premium service, but never a premium price. You shouldn’t have to choose one or the other. And by booking with us, you don’t have to.
We’re fortunate to work with a group of professional, friendly and hard-working people, some who have been with us from day one. They take a great sense of pride in their work and always go above and beyond on every job. Performing a successful relocation is not easy, which is why our surveyors and removals team need to be at the top of their game.
Gentleman & A Van is a member of the British Association of Removers, which is the industry standard for compliance and customer service.

We’ll be with you throughout your relocation, always on-hand to take any questions or advise on anything related to your move.
At Gentleman & A Van, we believe in a higher standard where customers are empowered and respected. We welcome feedback and are always striving to attain the best possible outcome for every relocation and storage job. We’re not trying to compete with the big, chain removal companies. But we do like to think we offer a superior service instead.

Our team have specialist removal’s equipment and tools, including hoists, making it possible to move and transport any item. What’s more, everything will remain in perfect condition, which includes when using our storage units.
