Hello there! Charlie Schneider here, the proud owner of CB Self Storage in Cambridge. Today, I want to shed some light on the age-old question: Is it better to hire a man in a van or opt for a large removals company? If you’re planning a move in Cambridge, this blog post will help you make an informed decision while keeping your budget in mind. At CB Self Storage, we believe in fair and reasonable pricing, and we’re committed to providing top-notch service to our clients, even if they don’t store with us. So let’s dive in and explore the options!

The Price Difference:

Let’s talk numbers. A man in a van service typically charges around £50 per hour, making it an attractive option for those on a tight budget. On the other hand, large removals companies often start at £250 for a half day and £400 for a full day. If you’re considering national brands, be prepared to pay around £1200 for a standard move in Cambridge. However, at CB Self Storage, we offer fixed-price, fair, and reasonable contract removals to all our clients, irrespective of whether they choose our storage services. We believe in giving back to our community and ensuring our removals partners are consistently working and happy.

Treating Everyone like Family:

Operating our company like a family is at the heart of what we do. We value our suppliers and contracts and treat them with the utmost fairness and respect. This approach has allowed us to foster strong relationships, which, in turn, leads to fantastic service and reliable discounts. And the best part? We happily pass on those savings to you, our valued customers, for free! So not only do you get high-quality removals service, but you also enjoy cost-effective solutions.

The Non-Stressful Move Guarantee:

Moving can be a stressful experience, and we understand that. That’s why we go the extra mile to ensure your move is as hassle-free as possible. While CB Self Storage may not always be the cheapest removals option in Cambridge, we strive to offer competitive pricing without compromising on quality. Our goal is to provide a seamless and non-stressful moving experience for you, whether or not you’re availing our self-storage services. We believe that a smooth transition to your new space is worth every penny.

We treat our suppliers and contracts fairly, allowing us to secure reliable discounts, which we happily pass on to you.
