Our hub is in York, and we oversee many removals within the city walls. That said, a large number of enquiries come from customers wishing to move out of the bubble and settle into York’s surrounding towns, suburbs and villages. At 1 Van 1 Man Removals, we don’t blame them.
Many Yorkshire villages balance domestic bliss with accessibility. They are neither too built up, nor too quiet to feel remote. Locations such as Copmanthorpe, Bishopthorpe and Poppleton provide customers with a picturesque home life just a stone’s throw away from York city. Connections on the A59 and A64 make commuting an easy ride, while the growing expansion of broadband and fibre optic internet make village residents feel connected to their city counterparts. Along with the cheaper rent and property prices, it’s no wonder that families choose removals in greener pastures.

So where does 1 Van 1 Man recommend? There are almost too many to choose from - Dunnington, Stamford Bridge, Haxby and Wetherby are all close enough to feel like honorary York residents. All are accessible and quaint, with a warm community and rich history. The joy of these settlements is they’re connected by beautiful country roads, pubs and lush green countryside. It makes a perfect base for the explorers among you. Market towns such as Harrogate boast a busy trading culture, while not too far from the city for your fix of retail therapy. Or, if you’re gasping for more and wish to move into the big city, 1 Van 1 Man can accommodate.
