The Moving Firm For Nursing Homes

1 Van 1 Man are a firm for the family. As such, we care for customers across all walks of life. When it comes to nursing homes, we appreciate the extra sensitivity required in order to make the residents’ move as easy as possible.

We’ve worked with most of the care homes in York and are familiar with the layouts, parking arrangements and local roads. Moving with us ensures your belongings go from door to door with minimal fuss. 

Upon arrival, our team can assist care home staff with unloading, unpacking and arranging items to ensure the room is as welcoming as possible for when the resident arrives. If that means putting together flat pack furniture, we can do that. Similarly, we’re able to dismantle existing furniture at the collection address then put it back together in the care home.

Vans That Are Right For The Job 

Residential home moves rarely exceed one or two rooms’ worth of items. We have vans specifically for this so that no fuel is wasted on a full size vehicle. Furthermore, we make sure every van is fully carpeted and items are packed responsibly so that no ornaments, heirlooms or keepsakes are damaged in transit. We’re also fully insured for that extra layer of security. Put simply, everything from furniture to photo frames are safe in our hands.

Multiple Destinations For Moving Day

Moving a family member into a care home isn’t always a straight line. Sometimes you must move essentials into the care home then transport more items to another property - a friend or relative’s, for example.

If you need to book us beyond the A to B of taking someone’s belongings to the nursing home, we can do that. We’ll allocate enough time in the calendar to drive back to the collection address, load the van with more items and then transport it to a location of your choice. Alternatively, we can drive the items to storage for you to collect later when the time is right.

With a sensitivity to the job at hand, 1 Van 1 Man are the trusted source for local care home removals. Get in touch today to arrange the transfer for your loved one.
