There is a lot more to moving house than simply switching places of residents. We know this well because we have made it our business for decades to safely pack up boxes of memories and make the process of leaving a home behind and setting up a new place as stress free as possible. Man and Van looks to make the process as simple as possible, so that you can do what everyone tells you is impossible and actually enjoy the process of moving house.
The big worry of course is that a bunch of strangers show up and batter your possessions and memories all over the place, chuck them in the back of their van and then disappear as soon as they have left. We do things differently, and because we come to your place early to map out a full plan we know exactly what materials you need, how big a van will be required and how many workers it’ll take to transport everything safely. As a result, you will know that everything we take will arrive at your new home in exactly the same condition as it left your old place.
TW18 covers Egham Hythe and Laleham but the largest town is Staines-Upon-Thames which sits in the London Commuter Belt surrounded by lush Green Belt land. It is just a river crossing away from the Thames Path National Trail so there is a lot more to this area than most non-locals know. As a result, it is ideal for young families where the parents work in the city but want somewhere quieter with access to the country for the kids to roam around in.
There has been a crossing here since Roman times, although there has been evidence of neolithic settlers here at Yeoveney on Staines Moor. It appears as part of Middlesex in the Domesday Book of 1086 as a property which was held by Westminister Abbey, much of the surrounding area was at the time. As a result of the proximity to the capital it has also found itself at the forefront of national affairs on. The barons met at Staines before meeting King John at Runneymede in 1215. Sir Thomas More was brought here to be tried for treason after refusing to swear fealty to the Crown in 1535, to ensure he could be executed before catching the plague that was blowing through London.
There are plenty of notable residents and sons and daughters from Staines as well. Comedian Bobby Davro was brought up here as were the infamous Lucan family, whose title was allowed to die out following the Lord Lucan mystery. Terence Dackombe, writer of Spitting Image was born here too but the most surprising thing is that the most famous resident of Staines is actually fictional. Ali G, the creation of Sacha Baron Cohen was renowned for his passion for Staines in both his TV series and movie.
