Do you need a ‘man with van’ service but you are concerned about the type of MAN that might turn up with a grubby VAN to handle your valuable personal items? Well, it is time to meet GentleMan With Van Berlin!

 My main aim is to take the stress OUT of moving your stuff: I will arrive full of energy with a clean van and a calm considerate attitude ready to move, lift or assemble whatever you need. The ‘GentleMan With Van’ service includes me, the GentleMan, as part of the deal.

I have ramps, trolleys and clever systems to enable me to move large items of furniture and heavy items such as washing machines up and down stairs and in and out of my van without anyone needing to put their back out. I am also a fantastic ‘tessellater’ & will protect all your items with ‘wooly van mats’, luggage straps and plastic wrap.
