At JamVans it’s not what we do it’s how we do it, we like to do things differently and to make that happen our people need to be a little bit different too. We are 100% focused on giving exceptional customer service and your job is to deliver this.

As a member of the team you would move household and office furniture and other items to new premises or into storage. But it doesn’t stop there, we also do exhibition moves and retail deliveries. Put simply, no two jobs are the same.

A typical day…

  • Checking with the client which items are to be moved.
  • Taking apart large items of furniture for packing and removal.
  • Packing items, loading them into the vehicle and securing them safely.
  • Driving to the new location, unloading belongings and placing them where client wants them.

Wherever there are houses, there are people that need moving, many of our moves are in London, however you may find yourself driving across the UK and even into Europe.

You’re never at the same place for more than a day; you will always be going different places and seeing different things.

The duration of a typical day is 9 hours with variable start and finish times.

You’ll need to manage your time to get your work done each day to achieve your performance bonus and you will get all the support you need for trickier jobs. Most of your training will be on the job, with the first two weeks working under the supervision of experienced team members, you will shadow them whilst they train you and teach you how we do things.
