Store Collection From Shops & Retailers

Our Store Collection service remains one of our most in-demand - perhaps something to do with our customers realising the time, money, and effort they could save when bringing in their friendly local experts to handle the heavy goods!  

We can provide store collections for furniture and white goods from locations including:


  • Residential Collections
  • Auction Rooms such as York Auction Centre, Summersgills Auctioneers, and Wombell’s

You name it, we'll drive there and collect it!  

There are many reasons our customers choose 1 Van 1 Man for their store collections, including: 

Cheaper store collection costs

Many stores offer delivery, yet their prices are often very expensive and can carry additional costs. With 1 Van 1 Man, our customers can rely on having a high-quality, cheaper alternative that works around them. This is especially true of new homeowners who may be looking to buy white goods or furniture in bulk. Our professional teams are used to transporting heavy, awkward loads safely and securely in our well-maintained fleet of vans. Whether from stores, auction houses, or the old family home - we’re the experts!

Urgent pickup required: same day delivery in York

If you’re anything like us, you like to keep the freezer fully stocked just in case. This is great when everything’s going well and the Vienetta is chilling nicely with the petis pois, but if your freezer were to break and you needed a replacement ASAP, you might find your chosen store has stock but no delivery slots. So, save yourself from thaw-mageddon and get 1 Van 1 Man involved for a quick, efficient pick-up - often on the same day you’ve placed the order. Looks like we’re on for a crispy pancake tea! 

Lack of person-power

When the store doesn’t offer delivery, our customers need experienced people that are used to lifting heavy items. 1 Van 1 Man has all the experience and muscle needed to transport your purchases from the shop to your home. We’ll load and unload from store to your door - even if that means taking it up flights of stairs.

Lack of Space

If you’ve ever sworn to yourself you’re just popping to the shop in to buy one small item for the house, but you’ve experienced some kind of retail autopilot and you’ve emerged, seemingly from a dream, into the car park with a new TV cabinet, dining table and chairs, and a complete set of cast iron cookware (we’re looking at you, IKEA Leeds), you’re not alone! Your trusty family car might have been okay for one item, but It’s often the case that customers find a bargain while shopping and find their motor just won’t cut it for the return journey - this is where we step in. 

Our vans can safely hold single and multiple items, including heavy and bulky ones, and have them delivered to you within hours of returning from your shopping trip. Consider us an affordable backup for those last-minute (but very welcome) additions to your home. 

Worried about experiencing flat-pack fear? We even offer an assembly service for the items when we arrive!


Buying new things can be exciting but delivery times are often a nuisance. While some retailers may be able to give you an accurate time frame, it’s much more likely you’ll be given an unhelpful hours-long window, meaning you have to book time off work, twiddle your thumbs in your house, and pop to the window at the sound of any approaching vehicle! This problem is eradicated when you make use of 1 Van 1 Man as we can pick up the item from the store and deliver it at a time to suit you - not at the convenience of the retailer. You could book us in before work, on a Saturday morning before ParkRun, or even during your lunch break, ensuring no time lost and smiles all round.

Whatever your reason for needing a store collection, we have you and your purchase covered. Contact us now to book your store collection and join the hundreds of people who would never choose any other removals service in York than 1 Van 1 Man.

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!
