Removals, deliveries and more in the YO30 area

Although we initially made a name for ourselves in the YO area through our house removal expertise, we’ve been keen to develop over the years by taking on board requests and recommendations from the fine people of Huby and Sutton, which has resulted in today’s smorgasbord of transport solutions. These include:

House removals: we can help you with large, small, and internal house and flat removals, offering competitive prices combined with the very best service. Whether you’re moving to or from the area, or simply upgrading within the village to a nice, detached house on Horner Avenue, we will ensure that your moving day goes smoothly from start to finish.

‘You Load’: our self-load van hire service comes complete with a professional driver, so all you need to do is supply the muscle and we’ll supply the man and machine. This is a great option if you’ve got a few friends you can persuade to help out in return for a drink or two in the Mended Drum! 


House clearances: the need to clear a house in its entirety can come about for any number of reasons, including some that we know can be sensitive and difficult for people. Our professional team can action a clearance quickly, respectfully and with the minimum of worry for you. 

Rubbish removal: spring cleaning got a little out of hand? Upgrading that avocado bathroom suite? We can handle all manner of rubbish removals for you, including house fittings, garden waste, scrap metal, white goods, mattresses, carpets and more

Office removals: whether you’re moving a small office, an entire shop or an artisanal workshop, we’re here for you. What’s more, we’re available 24/7 so we can move outside of your usual operating hours to limit the impact on your business  

These are just a selection of our services, please do head over to our services page to check out the full list. 

Reasons to love Huby? Here's two.

1. It’s home to York Bird of Prey Centre and who doesn’t love a nice owl?

2. It’s a fantastically friendly village with an active and thriving community - you only need to look at the number of clubs and societies active in the village, the well-used pubs, the community owned and run shop and post office, and initiatives such as the fuel cooperative for proof.

Since 1 Van 1 Man started in York back in 2008, we’ve had the pleasure of making frequent calls the 20 minutes or so to Huby, whether that’s to help a new customer move into the area, or a repeat customer making regular use of our courier service for their eBay shop deliveries.

Huby Village

Been on a shopping spree? No problem! 

When the buying bug bites and you’ve suddenly realised your car might not be quite up to the task of transporting two large tree palms, six growbags, four trays of sweet peas, three decorative ferns, and a terracotta water feature, you need a local company with a fleet of vans and expert drivers ready for such a task! 

Whether you’ve stocked up ready for an outdoor overhaul at Dean’s Garden Centre in York, snapped up a beautiful but bulky walnut desk from Summergills Auctioneers, or simply need help transporting a disassembled greenhouse to your allotment, we’re here for you. We can help with pick-ups from local and national auction houses, as well as from big-name chain stores such as John Lewis, IKEA, Homebase and DFS.

Student removal specialists in Huby

With years of experience helping the next crop of bright young minds make the big move to university, we’ve certainly picked up a good understanding of the unique needs that students have. This ranges from being available at short notice for an emergency trip at the start of year one, or a move from one house to another in second or third year, to offering student discount to make sure those already tight budgets aren’t being drained too rapidly. 

Although Huby is only around 12 miles from the University of York and 30 miles or so from Leeds Beckett, we know that students aren’t tied to their county when it comes to pursuing a degree, that’s why we’re available to transport your essential home comforts anywhere across Britain, from Exeter in the South to Edinburgh in the North.

Profession removals for nursing and care homes 

For many, the reality of moving out of a long-term home into a more formal care setting can be a daunting and stressful experience. Having familiar home comforts in new surroundings can help to make the transition more manageable. As a company, we take great pride in the professional, sensitive way that our fully CRB-checked staff go about ensuring moving day is completed with the minimum of fuss, often having furniture and belongings in place and set-up before their owner has arrived. 

If you or a loved one is looking at moving into sheltered accommodation, or a nursing or care home close by in Easingwold or York, or even further afield, please do get in touch for advice and support. 

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