Availability of Supplementary Man and Van Support
The support that filmmakers find agreeable in the UK is not limited to companies offering production crew and technician services. Anyone involved in the movie making world knows that despite the amount of planning and preparations done, there are always instances when the film outfit faces unexpected situations of needing to relocate to another area.
Those kinds of emergency situations though have long been provided with solutions by companies that offer able-bodied man with a van London to any location a film outfit wants or needs to be. The most in demand though are the man and van providers who have had years of experience not only in providing transport vehicle but also in performing other ad hoc services such as

- Dismantling and Re-Assembling Equipment
- Rendering Packing Services
- Furnishing Self-Storage for props and marquees while hired as part of the film outfit
- Providing Other Forms of Transport e.g. Cars and Motorbikes
- Committing to stay discreet and keep things under wraps until filming has been completed and ready for advertising and promotions.
