Removals in Alne

Removals Experts Available in Alne (5* service)

It’s always a pleasure being asked to complete removal jobs in Alne - it might be a small village but it has a big personality. We particularly enjoy the very real sense of community it has, especially when the village comes together for events such as the Alne Street Fayre.

With the village located just ten miles or so along the A19 from our base in York, we’ve had plenty of opportunities to assist Alne’s residents with their transportation and removal needs since we started in 2008. If you’re looking to move home, need help with a house clearance, or simply need a van and driver for a few hours, we could be exactly what you’re looking for.

Why choose us? 

As a proud Yorkshire company we know the area’s many cities, towns and villages intimately – mainly because our staff have lived and worked in most of them! Over the years we’ve been operating, we’ve built up a strong reputation for excellence, thanks in part because of our dedication to: 

  • Always be on time: No more checking your watch and chasing up no-shows and latecomers. 
  • Be transparent with prices: The price we say is the price you pay - we don’t do hidden fees.  
  • Take pride in our professionalism: All of our uniformed, courteous staff have one priority - you. Our fleet of vans are always cleaned and maintained to the highest standard. 
  • Be available 24/7: Our customer’s lives are rarely 9-5 and so ours isn’t either. We’re available all day, every day - even weekends and bank holidays. 
  • Keep costs low: Whether that’s plotting the shortest, most convenient routes to and from destinations using our GPS-equipped vans, or coming up with cost-saving solutions such as the ‘You Load’ option.  

Local claim to fame

We love to find out interesting facts about the places we work and Alne is no exception. Did you know that the bricks made nearby by the York Handmade Brick Company have been used in famous landmarks like The Shard and London Bridge Station, as well as our very own York Racecourse? 

Where do we operate? 

Although we’re based just up the road from Alne in York, our services are by no means limited to the YO postcodes, they aren’t even limited to the country! We’ve gained great experience over the past decade helping people like you locally, nationally and internationally.

Maybe you’ve impulse bought an oak armoire while holidaying in France, or maybe you’ve bought a little too much at IKEA and you’ve realised the family car might not suffice this time… not to worry, we’re here for you - wherever that might be.

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.
