Likewise. I would say they are for smaller jobs. Removals Company are for bigger and more valuable in terms of item price, hence why the insurance. My friend used to work as for various company as porter and he rarely saw a small job like moving flat.
I would say if you have budget below £1 000 and no valuable items (e.g antique ) in price terms Look for man and van.
Man and van typically will look for opportunity not to use box to pack items, they will just put it in the Van and best scenario will cover with blanket. Where removals company are more likely to think if it can be put in box they will and put same paper if needed inside box.
