How Many Removal Vans Do I Need?

While the final answer depends on the size of your house, the average job tends to require one van only. This is because:

  1. The vans are spacious to begin with. Ranging from 10.5 to 18 cubic metres in volume, they can transport an awful lot of goods in one trip, particularly if they’ve been packed well.
  2. Even if a removal exceeds the capacity of 1 van, it’s cheaper to make two legs with the same vehicle than fork out on an extra van and driver.

When Might I Need Two Or More Vans?

Multiple vans tend to be needed when people move longer distances. The way both vans can arrive at the new home simultaneously, rather than make journeys to and from the old house. If that’s the case, you can book multiple vans and we’ll arrive as a convoy.

Sometimes multiple vans are needed if residents have separate destinations, such as students moving out after exams or couples breaking up. In this case, it’s more efficient to hire two smaller vans that can head to different houses once everything has been loaded.

Normally I don’t do reviews, but I must give recognition where praise is due. Booked 1 Van 1 Man Removals 3 weeks before my move. The reservation was easy, they understood what I needed. But then I had to move 4 days prior and I entered alarm mode. I called customer support on the phone and told them what had happen, they were thoughtful, and they did the impossible to pull my booking 4 days earlier for which I'm forever appreciative. 1 Van 1 Man Removals are the greatest!

Brilliant movers & moving service! We had great experience with 1 Van 1 Man Removals! The team arrived on time and was pleasant, supportive and qualified. Fantastic communication, value for money, helpful and approachable. Will 100% select this same moving company again next time and could not recommend the moving team more highly. Thank you so much!

My estate agents told me good things about 1 Van 1 Man Removals and decided to listen to them. A good choice certainly. The movers were rapid and careful, and they transported all my possessions to the new address without any problems. I will most undeniably use them again when I must. Hopefully, it won't be soon though.

Our family has moved many times over the years but have never had movers as efficient & courteous as the 1 Van 1 Man team in York. Dale, Mike & John took charge of wrapping our antiques so cautiously so they would arrive intact. It was so nice just to turn everything over to them and watch them take charge. As a side note, they came in under our estimate by £150.

Bunch of remarkable team guys! I and my fiancée had to transfer out of our previous flat, and we had a lot of gear to move to our new home. I found 1 Van 1 Man Removals online and called, they responded to my question very swiftly, I instantly reserved my move with them. On the day the removal team didn’t disappoint too!!! They operated quick and were very prepared for my move on the day. Outstanding & reasonably priced service for a Yorkshire company compared to the others!
