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 SW18 Man and Van specialists now on 0207 228 7651.
Most of the roads around SW18 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in SW18 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 SW18 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 SW18 flat moving.
A Little Bit About SW18
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 SW18 covers Wandsworth, Southfields and Earlsfield. The local authority covering these areas is Wandsworth.
Wandsworth took its names from the Anglo-Saxon Waendelsorde, meaning Waendel’s enclosure and is even mention in the Domesday Book 1086. It is on the Surrey side of the river Thames and is where the river Wandle flows into the Thames. In the years before electricity was widespread, Wandsworth was filled with gas lamps – and not just on the streets and in the home; Falk’s Veritas gas mantle works, for example, was situated on Garratt Lane, where it made gas mantles to hang above the open flames in street lighting.
Until the late 19th century Southfields was still fields, situated between the more developed villages of Wimbledon and Putney. When the District & London & South Western Railway from Wimbledon to Putney Bridge opened in June 1889, the area started to take off, with the first school opening a year later on Merton Road.
In 1926, Southfields became home to London’s first Mosque. The Fazl Mosque also known as the London Mosque was built by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and presently serves as the international headquarters of the community. An abstinence law prevented any pubs from being built in the Southfields Grid until 1990 when the law was lifted.
Earlsfield is probably less well known as its neighbouring areas of Tooting, Clapham, Balham, and Battersea. Earlsfield has good transport links with a local railway station with regular trains to Waterloo, via Clapham Junction, provided by South-West Trains travel zone 3. When the site was sold by the Davis family to the rail company one of the conditions of sale was that the station would be named after their house. Thus the name of that house provided the name of the station, and thence to the suburb. Earlsfield Library has on display a range of historic photographs of the area.
