When you need your petrol-powered pride and joy moved from point to point under something else’s steam, think wheels within wheels, think 1 Van 1 Man! Our large, well-maintained vans are ideal for ferrying your scooter, motorcycle, or small vehicle from location to location across York, Yorkshire and beyond - in fact we’re happy to help you out wherever you might need a pickup or drop off around the UK.
Thanks to our high capacity and quality service, we’re often called upon to move our customer’s favourite vehicles. Whether you’re a new client or an existing one, we can promise affordable prices and customer care that is second to none - you only need to take a look at our 100s of top Google Reviews to see that we deliver on our guarantees.
There are many reasons why you may need your motorbike or scooter picked up or dropped off in York. Some of our most frequent requests stem from:
You’ve just treated yourself to a new ride but it’s yet to be taxed or insured - not a problem. We can pick up your wheels and bring them to your home, whether that’s in York or beyond the city’s borders, leaving them to shine invitingly in the garage while you sort out the paperwork!
We’re often asked to pick up motorbikes and scooters from the side of the road. Be it from running out of fuel or niggling engine problems, we understand better than most that breakdowns happen. You’ll find we’re much cheaper than traditional garages, tow truck companies or roadside assistance vehicles. With your motorbike or scooter loaded safely in the van, we can take your pride and joy away from the roadside to anywhere you’d like, from your local garage to your home.
Occasionally our customers find their vehicles seized by the police and put in the York compound. It’s not our job to question why, only to retrieve your vehicle safely and sensibly. You just need to know that if your motorbike is seized, for any reason, we can pick it up and bring it back to you for a fraction of the cost of the police.
Many of our customers love doing up old motorbikes, scooters, and mopeds and who can blame them? There’s a part of all of us that dreams of zipping along Yorkshire’s verdant vales in the sun upon two wheels! Often, the easiest way to get the parts for repairs and refits is to buy a full bike online, then pick it apart for specific pieces. Whether you buy your spares and repairs from eBay, Gumtree, or any other source, you can depend on us to do the collecting and transporting. Having this option will considerably widen your search, meaning far better deals!
Sometimes, no matter how much time, effort and money is poured into it, an old bike has simply had its day and needs to go to the scrapyard. This fits well with our eco policy as scrapyards in York have a commitment to ethical recycling. We can pick up your bike from your home, or wherever it is parked and take it to the scrapyard of your choice - whether that’s a local one such as Pigotts Auto Parts in Strensall, Clancey L & Sons in Muron, Horwell Brothers in York, or one further afield.
The collectors among you will likely own several motorcycles - some customers’ collections have totalled almost a dozen! Needless to say, ferrying that many bikes to and fro during a house move is quite the undertaking, not to mention a possible logistical nightmare. Happily, for you, our large capacity, fully insured vans can handle several bikes in one go, even when packed safely alongside your other possessions - no more weighing up whether your trusty triumph takes priority over your bedroom furniture!
Whatever your reason for needing motorbike and scooter pickup and delivery, 1 Van 1 Man has got you fully covered, for much less than you’d think. Get in touch today to find out how affordably we can transport your favourite set of wheels.Rev Up A Quote Online

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 to York. We were extremely worried about how we're going to take all our furniture with us all the way to York from London. 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!
Dale and his crew were professional and polite. Packed everything with great care and consideration. Arrived in Devon with no delays and unpacked with no damage to any items! Awesome!
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.
Amazing service and very efficient! Came on time, helped me carry the double sofa bed up! Very competitive price as well. Dale was also very friendly. Overall will highly recommend and definitely use them again in the future if when needed. Thanks again.
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 !
Outstanding Motorcycle moving service provided by York company -1 Van 1 Man. I had a motorcycle moved from Selby to Leeds. Bike was collected with ease and the van was kitted out, they delivered on time as promised. They updated me throughout the whole journey… cheers!
I’ve used 1 Van 1 Man twice now in 3 years and recommend Dale and his crew with the highest regards. Phenomenal professionalism, customer service and absolute good people. There aren’t enough accolades I can use! I’ll be booking them again in the future and advise you do too!
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Responsiveness, Value Amazingly quick, efficient, friendly and professional service who came at the drop of a hat! Wouldn’t use anyone else now we’ve found these guys. Awesome!
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.
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value - Very friendly, helpful lads! They had bother getting my big sofa out of the house but persevered until it was out! Thank you for your help! I would definitely use them again, great service. Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
