Man With A Van Edinburgh Ltd was established by David Burgess in 2000 and has grown from one man to a small team of dedicated professionals providing exceptional customer service.  We are based in Edinburgh and deliver locally and also nationwide (to and from Edinburgh).  For long distance trips we can offer part loads on our regular trips to London.


We provide both domestic and commercial removals well as waste disposal and storage.  We are licenced by SEPA for waste disposal.


Man With A Van Edinburgh has full public liability insurance and can offer Goods in Transit insurance to give customers that extra peace of mind.


Man With A Van Edinburgh provides removal services to domestic and commercial customers. We can transport anything from single items to full house or office moves. We specialise in: 

  • Small house or flat moves
  • Pick-up and delivery of new purchases (and returns) from IKEA, John Lewis and many others
  • Small office moves
  • Removal and disposal services (SEPA registered)
  • Storage
  • National moves (including part loads)
  • Supply of boxes and packing materials
  • Domestic Removals

We can move 1-3 bedroom flats and houses with a quick and efficient service, providing a greater degree of flexibility than the larger removal companies. We can offer a packing service to help ease the pressure of moving day and can provide short or longer term storage for moves that are a little more complicated.


Commercial Moves


We offer relocation services for commercial organisations and charities as well as smaller moves for departments or individuals moving to other offices. Property management companies use our services on a regular basis to help with moves and property clearances. 


Pickup and Delivery of Purchases


We often pick up purchases for customers from retailers such as IKEA and John Lewis, as well as delivering returns.


Removal and Waste Disposal


Man With A Van Edinburgh is registered with SEPA to provide waste disposal services and we offer full house and office clearance services as well as disposal of individual items such as washing machines and fridge freezers. You can be confident that as a SEPA registered company, we will dispose of your items professionally and safely.


National Moves


We provide reliable and cost effective solutions to national moves to and from the Edinburgh area. Frequent nationwide deliveries to London, Manchester and other areas of the UK, allow us to offer part load services to customers who do not have enough items to hire a full van. We can provide flexibility in our deliveries and the more flexible the customer can be in terms of delivery, the more cost effective our service.


Storage Services


Many customers use our storage services to provide them with flexibility in their moves. The stress of moving house or office in one day does not need to stress you out. Take the time to pack the non urgent items and put them in storage, giving you space to clear out your house and move into your new home. You can bring in your non urgent items when you are organised, allowing you to feel in control of your move. Storage can be booked for short and longer term solutions. You will be charged a monthly fee payable by standing order for longer term storage.


Boxes and Packing Materials


We can provide a range of boxes and packing materials including wardrobe garment carriers which can significantly reduce your packing time as well as providing additional protection for your favourite clothes. Packing is often the most stressful part of moving and whilst many customers are happy to use recycled boxes from their local supermarket, they do not have control over the size and quality of the boxes supplied. Finding suitable boxes can easily become a major task in its own right. Get your boxes supplied and reduce your stress and hassle to let you spend your time getting on with your packing. See our blog for helpful hints on organising your packing in 10 easy steps.


Packing Services


If the idea of packing fills you with dread, then you will benefit from our packing services. We can arrange to come to your house/office and pack up for you to allow you to get on with your day to day living/working. All boxes will be labelled with the room and items contained.
