Internal Moves, Porter Hire & Labourer Services

Sometime you need an extra pair of hands to help you with the move. This is where our labourer service comes in.

Do you need to move a short distance within a single complex? Internal moves are a popular choice for people living in the same apartment block, student halls or sheltered accommodation. It might not occur to you that moving firms can accommodate this but rest assured, 1 Van 1 Man will help.

Moving Between Flats

York’s apartment blocks are towns in themselves. They have their own areas, neighbourly communities and a shared sense of home. It’s not uncommon for people to move homes within the same apartment complex or block of flats. Some do it to upgrade or downsize within reachable distance, others to move closer to their friends and neighbours. Some folks just like the freedom of a fresh start, albeit within the same building!

If you need to move between flats in the city - whether in York, Sheffield, Leeds, Hull or elsewhere, we will help every step of the way.

Moving Across York Uni Campus

York University is getting bigger and flashier every year. Undergraduates understandably do not have wheels to spare, which is why 1 Van 1 Man help students move across campus whenever they need to. A short drive across Main Street can cut hours of walking to and fro. In many cases, the move is one leg only so very affordable for students on a tight budget.

What’s more, students can pool money together and pay as one group for a single apartment move. That makes it doubly cheap when arranging an internal move between halls of residence.

Moving To Sheltered Accommodation

Internal moves in sheltered accommodation occur for many of the same reasons as apartment blocks. Residents settle in, form friendships and decide to move closer to one another. Much like us helping students, our role is to make the move as convenient as possible for the customer. Even if you are moving down a hallway, you won’t have to worry about who will handle the heavy chairs and furniture.

We’ve helped people move in all environments - from nurseries to residential homes - and we treat all customers with the courtesy and sensitivity they deserve.

Internal Moves Are Speedy

The distance is short so the job is quicker. We handle internal moves with the utmost professionalism to ensure you get to your new flat as quickly as possible. With any luck, it’ll barely feel like a chore at all. And less time means fewer hours, and therefore a cheaper service!

Internal Moves Are Safe

Moving between apartment blocks usually involves a number of stairs. Being the consummate professionals that we are, these are no hindrance. Our staff treat obstacles safely, carefully and with the utmost attention to your goods and furniture. We know where to lift, when to rotate and how to dismantle so that nothing gets scraped along the way. Scale that by half a dozen flights of stairs, and you’ll begin to appreciate the endurance involved and the pride we take in the job!

I scarcely write reviews but just wanted to say that this is a super professional, friendly, and efficient moving company. From the initial quote, through to the move itself - everything just went extremely smoothly (which is NOT the case with other companies I have used). Their prices are competitive (I got quotes to check), and the crew was outstanding and super helpful which made the move, which can be very stressful, as stress free as possible. I would not hesitate to use them again. Next time, I won't even need to bother getting other quotes either!

Excellent Service! I would highly recommend them. We forgot to confirm our removal via email. The day of the removal I woke up at 4.30am with a doubt I realize that the removal firm was indeed not confirmed (my fault). I called the manager Dale who managed to save the day by organising a last-minute team. The guys did a fantastic job, dismantling/reassembling an expensive ottoman bed and taking it up to the second floor through an incredibly tight staircase without a scratch. They wrapped and protected everything, also items which really didn't need any protection. Everything has been moved without a scratch to the furniture and the premises. And the price was not even comparable to other moving companies in York. I have been charged lucrative quotes from other companies, given that we did all the boxes, we had very few furniture (one king bed, a sofa, table and chairs) and the old and new places were just 3 roads away. I could not believe how different the quotes were and I could not understand how to justify such a huge difference. We eventually decided to take the "risk" to go with 1 Van 1 Man Removals who quoted us a fraction of the others. I am so pleased we decided to go with them, I cannot imagine what more they could have done! Highly recommended. Just remember to confirm your booking by email.

We had a great experience moving with this Removals firm we hired in York and would recommend to others. From the efficiency and approachability of the admin team who help us book in to the reliable and cheerful packers and movers of 1 van 1 man. They were prompt, qualified and they made moving to a new house amazingly stress free! Thank you so much, you were all totally amazing! I couldn’t have asked for a better service!

My wife and I decided to move out of London. We were extremely worried about how we're going to take all our furniture with us all the way to York. Fortunately, 1 Van 1 Man Removals are true professional movers. The moving team that showed up on the day was quite competent and very polite. High standard removal service at a fair price. Thanks, guys!

Moved from York to Cambridge, Contacted 6 removal companies within York. But 1 Van 1 Man gave us the best quote including good communication thru emails and phone calls, the process was brilliant. We even ordered boxes through their box shop at the last minute and it was delivered straight to our door on time. Have already recommended this company to all my friends!

Good communication before moving, showed up on time, very well-organized. Moved from a 3-bed semidetached to house in Scotland. They loaded the van on the day and delivered all my household items the next day without damage. Really happy customer, great company, excellent team could not ask for more!

From the initial enquiry to the delivery of the piano I was impressed by the professionalism, communication and service we received. Everything happened on time and both men were friendly, polite and helpful. We will have more things to move and will definitely use 1van1man removals again. Thanks lads.

Booked 1 Van 1 Man to transport musical instruments to a concert venue in York with 48 hours notice. They were professional, flexible and friendly and I would be happy to use them again.

The team arrived on time were very courteous, professional and efficient. While we all knew I was paying by the hour they came in well under other moving companies in York who quoted me fixed prices. I would recommend them and most certainly use them again if needed.

Very easy move with Dale and his lifter n shifter on the day, James. Both really courteous and easy to work with. I had a guy to help me out and they were happy to work with him. I had to move stuff from two locations to a third. All done smoothly and efficiently - everything securely loaded and fixed in the van, everything unloaded to where I wanted it. Dale had also advised me where to get packing materials in York as I'd been let down by a courier. I would recommend 1 Van 1 Man - you get flexible, sympathetic, efficient service at a very good price. What are you waiting for? Move. (I feel well qualified to write this as I have moved 5 times in 12 years and used 5 removal companies including 1van1man)

Mike and Dave made the perfect team to help me move a 2 bed house on my own - After a quick look around and confirming what was going on the van they cracked straight on, dismantling wardrobes that wouldn’t fit down the stairs, loading boxes and negotiating a very large prickly Holly tree (well done Mike, you were a trooper!) Once at my new home they unloaded quickly and efficiently (thanks to Dave’s expert Tetris loading skills) and kept checking in with me where I needed all my furniture and belongings put. This is the second time I have used 1van1man and I will continue to do so. They made the move feel so easy, especially as it was just me as my husband was at work. Friendly, professional and expert furniture dismantle and re-build skills - take the stress out of your move and just get 1van1man. Promise you - they’re ace !

I asked 1 Van 1 Man to deliver my piano to my new place of work, and the service they provided was exceptional. They were very easy to contact, as it ended up being a last-minute arrangement. They delivered it with great care and were very friendly and professional. A great service, and I would highly recommend.
