Our Man and Van service is designed for smaller W12 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. We never compromise on quality to ensure that our service is always the best around.
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 W12 Man and Van specialists now on 0207 228 7651.
Most of the roads around W12 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in W12 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 W12 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 W12 flat moving.
A Little Bit About W12
The W postcode area is a group of postcode districts covering part of central and part of west London. The postal district of W12 covers Shepherd’s Bush, White City, Wormwood Scrubs and parts of East Acton. The local authority covering these areas is Hammersmith and Fulham.
“Sheppards Bush Green” was first recorded in 1635 but the origins of the name Shepherds Bush are obscure. The name may have originated from the use of the common land here as a resting point for shepherds on their way to Smithfield Market in the City of London. There appears to have been an ancient custom of pruning a hawthorne bush to provide a shelter for shepherds protecting them from the elements as they watched their flocks. Alternatively the neighbourhood may simply be named after a local landowner.
The 1908 Summer Olympics held in Britain meant the Great Stadium (later known as The White City Stadium) was constructed for the Olympics. Opened by King Edward VII on April 27, 1908, this immense technological marvel was the first Olympic Stadium built in the United Kingdom. Great Britain led the participating nations with 146 medals, including 56 Gold.
After the Olympics, the stadium continued to be used for athletics until 1914, and was later turned into a greyhound racing track, although it was also used for short periods by Queens Park Rangers football club. It hosted one match during the 1966 World Cup. The stadium continued to serve as a sporting venue until 1985 when it was demolished and replaced by the BBC White City Centre.
