Our Man and Van service is designed for smaller W4 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 W4 Man and Van specialists now on 0207 228 7651.
Most of the roads around W4 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in W4 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 W4 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 W4 flat moving.
A Little Bit About W4
The W postcode area is a group of postcode districts covering part of central and part of west London. The postal district of W4 covers Chiswick, Gunnersbury, Turnham Green, Acton Green and Bedford Park. The local authorities covering these areas are Hounslow, Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham.
Whilst the beautiful riverside scenery is perhaps its biggest draw, Chiswick has many other attractions: great stretches of green land; historic houses; leafy avenues filled with handsome Edwardian and Victorian homes; easy road and rail links in and out of London; and a lively, boulevard-style High Road whose tree-lined pavements offer all the important contemporary shopping options as well as a thriving restaurant, bar and café culture with outdoor tables.
The name “Gunnersbury” means “Manor house of a woman called Gunnhildr”, and is from an old Scandinavian personal name + Middle English -bury, manor or manor house. Gunylda, the niece of King Canute lived there until her banishment from England in 1044. The manor owned by the Bishop of London, was occupied by the Frowyk family in the 15th century.
Turnham Green was originally a village on the main road between London and the west. It was recorded as ‘Turneham’ in 1235 and ‘Turnhamgrene’ in 1369. On 13 November 1642, the Battle of Turnham Green was fought near here during the First English Civil War resulting in the Parliamentarians blocking the King’s advance on London.
