Our Man and Van service is designed for smaller SW7 removals, single items, or 1 bedroom and smaller 2 bedroom properties. Whether you are looking for a smaller complete removal or just moving bulky items from A to B, our experienced uniformed crews will work until the job is completed. All our crews are from the permanent staff of Big Red Removals and Storage so you get the benefit of using our flexible hourly rate, only paying for the actual time the removal takes, whilst still getting the benefits of using a professional removals company.

All moves with Big Red can be covered with liability insurance. Each vehicle comes equipped with transit blankets, sofa covers, ties, a skate and a full tool kit. All of our vehicles are satellite tracked, so we know where they are at all times.
All our staff can dismantle/assemble normal furniture, disconnect/connect appliances when applicable and remove doors/windows. 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.
Whatever other stresses you have with your move, you can rely on Big Red to ensure that, from start to finish, the removal process is not one of them. Call the SW7 Man and Van specialists now on 0207 228 7651.
Most of the roads around SW7 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in SW7 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 SW7 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 SW7 flat moving.
A Little Bit About SW7
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 SW7 covers South Kensington and parts of Knightsbridge. The local authority covering these areas is Hammersmith and Fulham.
The area of South Kensington was largely undeveloped until the mid-19th century being an agricultural area supplying London with fruit and vegetables. The main roads established in the 1700’s are still recognisable today. Much of the building in the area occurred in Georgian and Recency periods of the early-middle 1800s, with the construction of Alexander Square, Pelham and Egerton Crescents, Thurloe Square and Onslow Gardens. Following the 1851 Great Exhibition in Hyde Park, an 87-acre area around what is now Exhibition Road was purchased by the commissioners of the exhibition, in order to create a home for institutions dedicated to the arts and sciences resulting in the foundation of the museums and university here.
The name Knightsbridge came from the reference to the crossing of the River Westbourne that was known as Knight’s Bridge, which is now an underground river. Knightsbridge was originally a small hamlet or locality outside the City of London, between the villages of Chelsea (Chelsey), Kensington (Kensing town) and Charing. In the time of Edward I, the manor of Knightsbridge appertained to the abbey of Westminster.
