does anyone have any recommendations for removals firms/man with a van type services in this area?

I hired a van through Poplar Van hire on Elmers End Road. Hired a long wheel base Transit from Saturday till Tuesday morning and it cost £120 and Ray that owns the place is friendly.
Good luck with the move

As Twinkle pointed out Poplar only hire vans, not men (I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere )

They supplied boxes , a complete packing service , 3 removers and a truck and moved all our stuff from a 2 bed third floor flat to a two bed second floor flat for £680.00 (inc VA and insurance)
I though they were pretty good - especially with delicate items - we had no breakages apart from one small tear to a lampshade and a very bent Papyrus palnt

A complete contrast to the excellent service the first time they moved me
One of the three removers (who claimed to have food poisoning) looked as if he was about to collapse and was next to useless so the job had be done by the remaing two alone.
They ran out of boxes and wrapping material so I ended up having to move all the glassware (despite paying for a full packing service)
They didn't even bother to wrap breakables like mirrors and pictures and then moaned when tea was offered without biscuits.
My wife phoned the owner Philip Field who was completely disinterested.
Never again . I withdraw my earlier recommendation completely
