The Shire Man & Van Hire
We are a local Stirlingshire couple that offer a friendly, professional and affordable solution to picking-up and moving items, both for individuals and businesses. Nothing is too much trouble, and we will happily move one item, do multiple runs or cover a full house move.
Based in Buchlyvie, Stirlingshire, we cover the whole of mainland UK. Removals available within Scotland, England & Wales.
The Shire Vans
We have mechanically sound vehicles with clean interiors, and will handle your items with care and diligence. The vans are cleaned inside after every single job when possible, and we always check to make sure nothing has been left behind. We do not carry rubbish, building debris or garden waste, so you can be sure that our interiors are dry, clean and fresh.
We are happy to give a free, no obligation estimate for any job.
We like small local jobs. We also like challenging jobs that take us somewhere new.
The Shire Man & Van Hire covers all of the UK and operates on an hourly basis, so whatever job you have us do, you can be sure that the price is fair and consistent for all of our customers. There are no additional charges for distance, as this is covered within your timed job, and distance is no obstacle.
Our time starts from the second we start the van up as this is when we are at work. The only small additional fees are for stairs and they vary depending upon how high you live plus extremely heavy or bulky items. We have now introduced a loyalty scheme for repeat customers whereby I can offer some 10% discount for those who come back time and again.
Motorcycle Breakdown Recovery
In the case of motorcycle breakdown, we are insured to take up to 2 passengers to their chosen destination (with their bike) at no additional cost.
We do not charge for cancellations when at least 24 hours notice is given, however there will be a cancellation charge of 50% of the job if cancellation is received less than 24 hours prior to the job. This charge is to keep things fair, and reflects the removal jobs we will have missed by taking the booking.
The Shire Man & Van Hire – what we don’t do…
We do not operate runs to/from the tip or dump or carry any kind of rubble/’dirty’ materials. If you have a household item that is clean and dry, and you are having removed from within the house, we can take this to the tip. We want to give our customers 5* service, and a dirty and smelly van is not good for business.
Fantastic, reliable and trust worthy pair. Billy and Jen have done so many jobs for me. From moving house to delivering small packages. Always very accommodating to your needs and have never let me down. Can not fault them in anyway as you will discover when you use them.
Amazing service. My first ever big move after being in my flat for 18 years (man I have a lot of stuff) and they made it stress free. Turned up on time and didn’t complain once about the bazillion steps. They moved me from my top floor flat in Glasgow to a storage unit and then to Aberfoyle and although my stairs have broken others carrying less, they remained cheery throughout.
Really friendly and a great service. Would fully recommend and hope to use again. Billy did a house move from Thornhill to Dunecht for us. Great price and super efficient.
