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 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!

Students

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!
