Knaresborough is a town full of character, always happy to show its less serious side, which kind of goes with the territory when two of your most popular annual events are a 5,000 strong rubber duck race, and a bed race culminating in a swim in the River Nidd!
Our experienced team of movers have helped with removals from all manner of homes, big and small, so regardless of if you’re moving to a flat in Vale Court, a semi in St Margarets Gardens, or a detached house in Bilsdale Court, your worldly goods are safe in our hands.
As a proud local company staffed by local people, we’ve spent plenty of time, both for work and for leisure around Knaresborough and the HG1 area, whether that’s going for a walk in Bebra Gardens, wandering around the ruins of the castle on the hill, or simply taking a boat out on the river and grabbing a drink or ice cream from one of the many fine vendors in town.
Now, 1 Van 1 Man Removals might not have been around quite as long as the town’s centuries old tourist attraction, Mother Shipton’s Cave, but we have built up quite a reputation over the years by helping Knaresborough residents and business owners with a whole host of transport, removal and delivery solutions. If you’re in need of some help, and you want to hire the best, we’re here for you!
It doesn’t take someone with the prophetic skills of local seer Mother Shipton to see that Knaresborough was going to prove a popular place for people to set up home. With great local schools, proximity to Harrogate, strong transport links, and a thriving community programme, including a weekly farmers’ market, there’s a good reason we’re regularly tasked with house removals in Knaresborough - it’s a fantastic place to live, work and raise a family.
We’ve already beaten the drum about how great a town Knaresborough is, but even so, we know that sometimes there’s a need to set out for a new adventure - 1 Van 1 Man’s 5* rated house removal services aren’t just limited to Yorkshire, we’re available wherever our clients need us, locally, nationally, and even internationally.
Whether you’re looking to move to an office in Monkswell Business Centre, you’re joining the ranks of lovely independents on the High Street, or you’re in need of short notice business-critical transport, we’re here for you as we have been for many other Knaresborough businesses over the years.

For residents and visitors alike, Knaresborough’s dedicated website is a mighty repository of business listings, upcoming events, walks, town history, dog friendly tips, and information on the Love Knaresborough Rewards Scheme - a loyalty card for the local area.
Setting out on your own as a first-year undergrad student can be a nerve-wracking thing, adding in the stress of moving your belongings to halls is definitely something you can do without - that’s where we come in. We’ve had the pleasure of helping many of Knaresborough’s young adults over the years with their moves, we’ve actually been around so long we’ve even helped quite a few move back to the town as well, either straight after graduating or when they’ve bought their own home.
Although many of Knaresborough’s students stay relatively local at places like Leeds Beckett, Leeds Art University, or the University of York, many choose to head further afield, that’s not a problem for us, we’re equally as happy to work nationally or locally.
If you’re a student in need of short notice removal services, give us a call, we’re used to helping out in an emergency, we even offer discounts for students!
From one-off pick-ups and drop-offs, to time-sensitive house clearances, our list of affordable, efficient services continues to grow. For added peace of mind, all of our jobs are covered by full public liability and goods in transport insurance as standard.
Our friendly team at 1 Van 1 Man HQ are always happy to take a call from a prospective customer! We offer quick, free, no-obligation quotes by phone or through our online form.

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!
