The day people move houses usually starts fairly early with everyone trying to be in good cheer. The boxes have been packed and everybody is ready to move to the newly acquired home in order to settle in and begin the next chapter of their lives. The process of evacuating your home of all heavy furniture begins well enough: the T.V and T.V stand is in the removal truck; the dining room chairs have been (albeit haphazardly) stacked in the same place. But there comes a moment, amid the laughs and joviality when the sofa gets stuck in the doorway, or when the children- as much as they want to- cannot help in lifting the king-size bed down the stairs and out of the front door. These kind of problems usually lead to a few scratched heads and an understandable shortening of everybody’s tempers. Man and Van is here to provide you with a service that will take away all of these problems. We have dedicated employees who help assist you with all stages of the moving process: from heavy lifting to providing transport for your movables.
The DA postcode refers to the postal area of Dartford, covering parts of southeast London and northwest Kent. The DA9 district specifically consists of the areas of Greenhithe and Stone.
Greenhithe is a town located where it was possible to build wharves for transporting corn, wood and commodities. It also enjoyed a brief stint as a tourist resort in the Victorian era, and had a pier built (like Brighton) that unfortunately does not survive in present times. The dominant feature of Greenhithe is that of Ingress Abbey. After the site changed hands on countless occasions from as early as the 14th century, a wealthy barrister purchased the land in 1833 and built his Elizabethan mansion. On the banks of the Thames it is a truly beautiful estate that stands in the midst of trees and on a carpet of green grass that goes right to the edge of the River Thames. The area has had a resurgence of energy come the end of the 20th century amid agreements to build new properties and repairing older houses.
The second area that makes up the DA9 postcode is that of Stone. It is one of several villages that lie on the Dartford to Gravesend road on the southern side of the Thames. Stone has a rich history: Iron Age pottery was discovered there proving that it is indeed the site of ancient settlement. It is also home to what was known as ‘the Lantern of Kent’, a beacon that shone from the top of the parish church dated to the 13th century. The history continues with the 11th century Stone Castle situated just north of the area.
