Removals in Horsforth - Removal Services at Great Prices

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.

Commercial Removals for Horsforth Businesses

We should know; we’ve helped a lot of them over the years!

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.

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!

My wife and I decided to move out of London to York. We were extremely worried about how we're going to take all our furniture with us all the way to York from London. Fortunately, 1 Van 1 Man Removals are true professional movers. The moving team that showed up on the day was quite competent and very polite. High standard removal service at a fair price. Thanks, guys!

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!

Good communication before moving, showed up on time, very well-organized. Moved from a 3-bed semidetached to house in Scotland. They loaded the van on the day and delivered all my household items the next day without damage. Really happy customer, great company, excellent team could not ask for more!

From the initial enquiry to the delivery of the piano I was impressed by the professionalism, communication and service we received. Everything happened on time and both men were friendly, polite and helpful. We will have more things to move and will definitely use 1van1man removals again. Thanks lads.

Booked 1 Van 1 Man to transport musical instruments to a concert venue in York with 48 hours notice. They were professional, flexible and friendly and I would be happy to use them again.

The team arrived on time were very courteous, professional and efficient. While we all knew I was paying by the hour they came in well under other moving companies in York who quoted me fixed prices. I would recommend them and most certainly use them again if needed.

Very easy move with Dale and his lifter n shifter on the day, James. Both really courteous and easy to work with. I had a guy to help me out and they were happy to work with him. I had to move stuff from two locations to a third. All done smoothly and efficiently - everything securely loaded and fixed in the van, everything unloaded to where I wanted it. Dale had also advised me where to get packing materials in York as I'd been let down by a courier. I would recommend 1 Van 1 Man - you get flexible, sympathetic, efficient service at a very good price. What are you waiting for? Move. (I feel well qualified to write this as I have moved 5 times in 12 years and used 5 removal companies including 1van1man)

Mike and Dave made the perfect team to help me move a 2 bed house on my own - After a quick look around and confirming what was going on the van they cracked straight on, dismantling wardrobes that wouldn’t fit down the stairs, loading boxes and negotiating a very large prickly Holly tree (well done Mike, you were a trooper!) Once at my new home they unloaded quickly and efficiently (thanks to Dave’s expert Tetris loading skills) and kept checking in with me where I needed all my furniture and belongings put. This is the second time I have used 1van1man and I will continue to do so. They made the move feel so easy, especially as it was just me as my husband was at work. Friendly, professional and expert furniture dismantle and re-build skills - take the stress out of your move and just get 1van1man. Promise you - they’re ace !

I asked 1 Van 1 Man to deliver my piano to my new place of work, and the service they provided was exceptional. They were very easy to contact, as it ended up being a last-minute arrangement. They delivered it with great care and were very friendly and professional. A great service, and I would highly recommend.
