Prices from just £15 in central Brighton - and ££££ in discounts!
Hands-down the friendliest, most efficient and BEST VALUE man-with-a-van service in central Brighton. Students: don't bother looking elsewhere!
Max and his trusty silver steed have over 8 years experience of getting their fellow Brightonians safely & efficiently moved around the city, with the minimum of fuss - and always with a smile.
The van is ideal for individuals, students and bands with a decent quantity of boxes, bags, instruments etc, but who are not moving a lot of bulky furniture for which a full-size removals van might be needed.
Nobody needs an expensive oversized removals van with a 2 hour minimum booking time, when all they're moving is a sofa or a few boxes. Silver Bullet to the rescue! Our prices start at just £15 for a 15 minute job in central Brighton, while a typical 1 hour job across the city is just £35. And if that's not enough of a bargain check out our new range of social discounts!
With dozens of rave reviews on social media, you can be confident of an efficient, friendly and exceptional value service.
NOTE: This service is for Brighton & Hove only, and may not be suitable for larger house moves. However if you're moving across town and don't need a full-size removals van, just drop us a line via the contact form - and save yourself ££££s! Further terms apply.
It's been quite a while since we stopped our student discount offer. Today we're happy to introduce a much wider range of "social discounts" going forward.
+£1 off each booking: share Facebook page publicly (1 share per booking, minimum 24h public, minimum 200 friends).
+£1 off each booking: show valid Student ID card when paying.
+£1 off next booking: like our Facebook page, or follow our Instagram or Twitter account.
+£2 off a repeat booking: leave an honest review on Facebook or Google. Good or bad, you still get the discount next time!
..and of course we will continue to give £5 off all bookings within 1 mile of The Level :)
Dusty arrived with us at the start of September 2020, after a protracted search throughout the summer for a worthy successor to the original Silver Bullet.
Suffering from a number of issues, having been overworked and underloved by previous owners, this silver beauty presented several challenges at the outset. But after painstaking work she was made shipshape for her new role around town, and she has since proven her worthiness many times over.
Once again a huge THANK YOU! to the crowdfund contributors who helped make Dusty possible. Your donations remain fully redeemable at any future booking with us.
The Original Silver Bullet
The truly special van that was the foundation of this business for the first 6 years was sadly stolen in June 2020, presumed for export, as a result of its desirability and value as a rare, compact & rugged workhorse and leisure van.
No longer manufactured in the UK since 2002, and often described as a 'Tardis', the Mazda E2200 was a slimline yet deceptively spacious multi-purpose van. It used the now ultra-rare "Cab Over Engine" layout that gave it an exceptionally lengthy cargo area, making it both a perfect camper/leisure vehicle and a superb compact removals van. Its unusual interior length allowed it to swallow up enormous sofas and wardrobes even though it was only about the same total length as a standard VW Transporter.
The original Silver Bullet was a rare near-pristine example of this much sought after vehicle, and it would happily navigate the narrow streets of Brighton with exceptional grace and style.
It was a much loved family member for 12 happy years, and is sorely missed 😥
*** Extra worker is not required for most jobs, normally it's just Max and the customer doing the work. The more you help, the quicker it will be :) Extra worker must be booked at least 7 days ahead, so that they can be recruited. Minimum 45 minutes is charged when hiring extra worker.
Please wrap up your valuable items properly for transport, fragile and poorly packaged items are carried at customer's own risk.
No waste-disposal trips to the household recycling centre, sorry, it's not worth the £5,000 fine! (It counts as commercial waste.) However taking unwanted items to charity shops, Shabitat etc is of course fine.
Not a taxi service. Service is for the transport of goods, not people, and advance booking is essential. Customers may sometimes ride with me as a non-paying guest, but as a rule please make alternate arrangements where possible.
Do not enter the van unless you are invited to do so, even for loading and unloading. This is to ensure you don't accidentally damage something (e.g. the rear bumper which customers have a habit of standing on and breaking) or hurt yourself.
Strictly clean, dry household items only. The van is sometimes used for camping so dirty or leaky items will not be accepted, and a cleaning fee will be charged in the event of fouling.
In the event of a last-minute cancellation where we have already set off, the callout fee and minimum booking length remains payable in full.
Customers are responsible for checking that furniture will fit in their new place before making their booking. No liability is accepted for items that the customer leaves outside after delivery having failed to get them into their intended destination.
Please make sure all furniture is flat-packed as much as possible prior to our arrival, so that it can actually be removed from the collection address without significant delay. Although we will do our best we cannot always guarantee we will have the tools or the time to assist with this.
