Acting as the middleman

It goes without saying that post-breakup you might want to avoid seeing your ex-partner unless absolutely necessary, which can make the whole business of moving out rather awkward, especially when belongings need picking up from a shared residence. In the event of a divorce, this could, realistically, amount to a large van’s worth.

At 1 Van 1 Man we are happy to complete this task on your behalf, helping you to avoid the need for terse exchanges on the stairwell or in the hallway. Our experienced team will go in and out, taking only the objects highlighted to us prior to the appointment. We find using a service such as ours makes for a much cleaner break and avoids situations where emotions are high, and tempers can flare. 

“We’ve split up/divorced & my partner Is moving out”

 If your partner is moving out of your flat or house, we’ll deliver their items to a new address, wherever that might be. All you’ll need to do is pack up their things and leave them in an accessible place for us. When we arrive, we’ll load the van and drive everything away to be dropped off with your ex-partner - out of sight, out of mind and all that. We’re sure they’ll be glad to have avoided a journey, and you’ll have avoided an unwanted interaction with the added benefit of being able to make a start on creating a space to really call your own.  

“I’m moving out after a breakup”

If you’re moving out of a property but your ex is staying there, it’s understandable that you might not want to return in a hurry. When we’re on the case we’ll drive to your old place, pick up just the items you have specified and drop them off safely and securely at your new address. 

Moving with assistance from the authorities

Sometimes, the circumstances surrounding a breakup might require a police presence at the property. It’s not our business to know why, only to move the items you ask us to. Our professional, CRB-checked staff operate with complete discretion and the utmost professionalism, ensuring items are loaded and transported quickly ready to be unloaded at the required destination.

Need a hand at short notice? Not a problem. 

Even if your move is urgent and unexpected, we’ll do our very best to accommodate you. Get in touch through our contact page, or by calling 01904 390 906 and we’ll be happy to provide you with a no-obligation quote tailored to your specific needs.

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!
