1 Van 1 Man is proud to be a local company run by local people and over the years we’ve had the pleasure to have helped many of Horsforth’s residents, homeowners and businesses with an array of transport and delivery solutions. We hope we can do the same for you.

Why we love Horsforth

At one time, Horsforth had the largest population of any village in England. Today this ‘Fairtrade Town’ is one of the most community-minded, exciting places to live anywhere in the region. It's little wonder then that it was named one of the best suburbs in England for quality of life in a Centre for Economic and Business Research survey, or that it made The Times list of The Best Places to Live!

We’re huge fans of Horsforth, from the leafy peace of Hunger Hills Woods to the buzzing late-night atmosphere in Town Street. Special mention to the Brownlee Arms - it’s not everywhere that can claim to have a pub named after two local Olympic medal winning athletes!

Moving to Horsforth? 

Although only six miles from Leeds city centre, and with regular trains able to get you there in just 15 minutes, it’s amazing how Horsforth’s green spaces, sandstone buildings and leisurely pace projects the feeling that you’re many more miles away from a major city! With great schools, transport links, parks, shops and services, it’s little wonder we’ve seen the demand for our moving services in the town increase over the years we’ve been operating in the LS13 area. From apartments off Station Road, to larger semi-detached and detached houses in Brownberrie Lane, our team of removals experts can help to make your move to Horsforth as stress-free and easy as possible. We’re not just here for newcomers to the area, if you’re leaving Horsforth for pastures new, we’re experienced in moving people all over the country too.

Removals services for Leeds Trinity students

Whether you’re a first-year student moving into halls and taking that initial step on your higher education journey at Leeds Trinity, or you’re a second or third year moving into digs with your mates, our experienced team of professionals can take the stress out of the moving process. We’re also available at short notice for emergency moves, and even offer student discounts to help the budget-minded among you! 

It’s not just for term time moves that we can be of use, we often get called out during holidays, especially in the summer to help students move back home, whether on a short-term basis or longer-term after graduating. We’re available for all of Leeds’s universities and can get you and your belongings wherever you need to be - locally or nationally. 

Our Mercedes Sprinter Luton vans have plenty of space for all of your essentials, plus our experienced drivers will be on hand to help and advise. We often see whole houses pitch in together to share the cost - look after the pennies and all that!

Been on a shopping spree at IKEA? Not a problem!

Much like Alice heading down the rabbit hole, we’ve all lost a considerable amount of time ‘popping’ into IKEA Leeds, only to emerge blinking into the daylight with several car loads of flat-pack furniture but only one car… if you’re ever in a similar situation, or know you’ve got a big shop planned, why not give us a call? Our friendly staff and fleet of vans will make short work of dropping your purchases back at home - we even offer a flat-pack furniture assembly service. 

Please note that although we're based in York, all our services are offered nationwide - including Horsforth. 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.
