If there’s one thing we think of when we’re asked to help out with house removals in Acaster Malbis, it’s location, location, location...

Okay, that was three! This pretty little village, just 5 miles south of York and near to some of our other favourite villages, including Bishopthorpe and Copmanthorpe, sits invitingly alongside the meandering River Ouse. We can’t think of many lovelier spots to park up for a quick tea break between jobs.

We’ve been operating in the Acaster Malbis area, from our base in York for over 12 years, in that time we’ve had many opportunities to help residents in the YO19 area with a multitude of tasks. Whether it’s moving an entire home, picking up furniture from an auction house, or helping to move boating equipment to the nearby slipway - 1 Van 1 Man can be relied upon for an efficient, stress-free service, every single time.  

Did you know? 

The River Ouse might be an attractive feature today, but in World War Two the frequent mists associated with it made the airfield at Acaster Malbis one of the most dangerous in the country. You can learn more about it on the website of the Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust

Acaster Malbis’ local hostelry, The Ship Inn has had its fair share of ghostly sightings over the years, but there’s one thing that we can guarantee isn’t scary - our prices! 

We work with our customers to ensure that we can keep prices as low as possible. In practice that means:

  • We run a GPS-equipped smart fleet - we always choose the shortest, most convenient, fuel-saving routes
  • The price we say is the price you pay - we don’t do hidden costs
  • Public liability and goods in transit insurance come as standard
  • There are no distance surcharges to worry about

If you’d like to keep costs even lower we also offer a You Load service - if you’ve got friends to help, or you’re feeling particularly energetic we can supply a driver and a Mercedes van and you take care of the loading and unloading. 

Please note that although we're based in York, all our services are offered nationwide - including Acaster. It doesn't matter what you're moving, or where you're moving to and from - we have it covered with our highly rated, flexible service.
