Removals For Care & Nursing Home Residents™

We offer a courteous and professional removal service for people who are moving into care homes, residential flats or sheltered accommodation. Our role is to make the process as comfortable as possible for both the service user and their family.

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.

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 !
