With the hourly Man and Van rate, crews have the flexibility to do any last minute packing, additional pick ups, trips to recycling, sofas through windows, etc. We are also able to provide a house clearance service, taking items to charity shops or recycling.

Most of the roads around SW16 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in SW16 a parking suspension is a necessity. The suspension has to be booked up to 14 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with your local council online. For smaller SW16 removals, using vans, we can load and unload for short periods on single yellow lines. Otherwise a dispensation would need to be booked, if we are packing and SW16 flat moving.
A Little Bit About SW16
The SW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1857. In 1868 some of the areas of the abolished S district were added. The postal district of SW16 covers Streatham, Norbury, Thornton Heath, Streatham Park, Furzedown, Streatham Vale, Mitcham Common and Pollards Hill. The local authorities covering these areas are Lambeth, Croydon, Wandsworth and Merton.
Streatham means “the hamlet on the street”. The street in question, the London to Brighton Way, was the Roman road from the capital Londinium to the coast near Portslade. It is likely that the destination was a Roman port now lost to coastal erosion, which has been tentatively identified with the ‘Novus Portus’. The road is confusingly referred to as Stane Street in some sources, although it diverges from the main London-Chichester road at Kennington.
The boundary between Norbury and Streatham, on the London Road at Hermitage Bridge, is one of the few rivers remaining over ground in the area – called Norbury Brook to the east of the Bridge and the River Graveney to the west where it flows on to join the Wandle and ultimately the River Thames.
There were many lavender fields in Mitcham, and peppermint and lavender oils were also distilled there. In 1749 two local physic gardeners, John Potter and William Moore, founded a company to make and market toiletries made from locally-grown herbs and flowers. Lavender features on Merton Council’s coat of arms and the badge of the local football team, Tooting & Mitcham United F.C.
