Man with a Van is available as a one or two man service in a full-size cargo van with ten feet behind the seats, a custom rack to maximize interior space, heavy duty industrial rubber bed mat, hand tools, furniture pads, dolly, hand truck, cart and more.
The enclosed van eliminates worries about your cargo flying off the back like a pickup truck. Interior of the van is clean. Trusted, experienced helpers, non-smokers, well rated on yelp. Small job focus, you’re not a low priority or inconvenience.
Price factors include time, location and difficulty. Prices are calculated with timed, flat or combination rates, one man or two, based on details. I try to be as EXPLICIT as possible in stating that my hourly rate does NOT necessarily determine the rate I’ll quote for your task. Based on the details I’ll tell you what I can do. My lowest rate is $40 for a simple one-man delivery. Although I do an occasional job at $40, it’s generally something I can combine with another job. More typically, a simple local delivery starts around $55 because of the time involved prior to and following the job. A more challenging job like a sofa dealing with stairs is a bit more. Everything depends on the details.

variable based on job, location, difficulty -
The price you’re quoted may be expressed as a flat rate or clock rate due to a wide array of job variables. Flat rates can be applied to jobs that are worth a bit more or less than a timed rate fee. The main objective in pricing is to be fair, reasonable and compelling. Bottom line? No two jobs are priced the same, but you will not be surprised by my price because I detail exactly what you’ll pay in advance, prior to scheduling.
The best surprise is no surprise. Please be prepared to provide the following information:
- Exact addresses and items to be moved?
- Distance to carry? Logistics: Stairs? Hallways? Courtyards? Elevators?
Time begins upon arrival at starting location on local jobs. The local area includes most of Boston, Cambridge, Brookline and Somerville. Payment is cash only please upon completion. BEYOND LOCAL: Flat and or timed rate using estimated load/unload and roundtrip travel time from Boston, plus fuel and tolls. Calls, texts and emails are delivered instantly and responded to as quickly as possible.
