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!

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!
Dale and his crew were professional and polite. Packed everything with great care and consideration. Arrived in Devon with no delays and unpacked with no damage to any items! Awesome!
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.
Amazing service and very efficient! Came on time, helped me carry the double sofa bed up! Very competitive price as well. Dale was also very friendly. Overall will highly recommend and definitely use them again in the future if when needed. Thanks again.
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 !
Outstanding Motorcycle moving service provided by York company -1 Van 1 Man. I had a motorcycle moved from Selby to Leeds. Bike was collected with ease and the van was kitted out, they delivered on time as promised. They updated me throughout the whole journey… cheers!
I’ve used 1 Van 1 Man twice now in 3 years and recommend Dale and his crew with the highest regards. Phenomenal professionalism, customer service and absolute good people. There aren’t enough accolades I can use! I’ll be booking them again in the future and advise you do too!
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Responsiveness, Value Amazingly quick, efficient, friendly and professional service who came at the drop of a hat! Wouldn’t use anyone else now we’ve found these guys. Awesome!
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.
Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value - Very friendly, helpful lads! They had bother getting my big sofa out of the house but persevered until it was out! Thank you for your help! I would definitely use them again, great service. Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
