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!

Our move had two pick up addresses, including storage which was all organised by 1 Van 1 Man Removals previously with Inner Space. Their promptness and speed were fantastic, and the guys were very courteous and extremely professional. Nothing has been broken and they treated all our items with care and respect. Save yourself the stress and hire 1 van 1 man for your move.

Was looking at different moving companies in York and decided to hire 1 Van 1 Man for my move a few months ago. I made the best choice. From my previous hire of other moving company, promises are sometime never kept. This is not the case with this company though. So, I called them for an estimate, they appeared very genuine and gave me a sensible quotation. The movers did arrive on time on moving day. All three lads skilled and know what they were doing which gave me piece of mind. I have a lot of furniture’s, but they were speedy at packing everything. They took care, carrying big pieces of my furniture out of my house without damage to walls or the items and secured them into the vans. All my gear was being taken from York to Scotland, so I was quite worried how they were going to cope with the journey. Appreciatively, all my household items travelled securely, and the transfer of all my items was made on the scheduled date. Fantastic move from the team at 1 van 1 man removals.
