Removals York - Local Favourite Removal Firm

Best house removal experts in York for professional service

For us, York truly is home sweet home (and that’s not just because of the city’s chocolatey history), so we can completely understand why we’ve seen the demand for our house removal services within the city and the suburbs grow so much since we started way back in 2008! With a fantastic array of schools, great transport links, and more activities than you can shake a stick at, it’s little wonder The Times called York a ‘northern star’ in its list of best places to live.

  • Move you efficiently - we plan the shortest, most convenient routes to save fuel consumption and costs

Our removals history with this great city ''York''

They say home is where the heart is, and that’s certainly true for us and the wonderful city of York. We don’t really have enough space here to explain all the reasons why York just might be the greatest city ever (sorry not sorry London), but ten minutes of wandering the city’s ancient streets and it’s difficult to argue anything else! 

We’re proud of the fact that from humble beginnings in the city in 2008 we’ve been able to grow, with the support of the fine residents of York, into the moving company we are today. One thing that has never changed over the years though is our commitment to providing the very best removal services at the very best prices. 

If you’re in need of a friendly, local York removals company for a residential or business task, large or small, 1 Van 1 Man Removals is the firm for you.

What other removal services can we offer in York? 

Although we made a name for ourselves as house removal specialists in York, we quickly recognised that our customers had many other requirements beyond a change of postcode.

Helping to move York’s students

Over the many years that we’ve been helping students move to and from the University of York and York St John University, we like to think we’ve picked up more than a little understanding of their specific needs and expectations. Whether that’s being available at short notice for emergency moves, or offering student discounts to help those tight budgets stretch that little bit further. 

We’ve enjoyed helping students take that big step from leaving their family homes across the country to move to one of York’s halls of residence, second and third year students move to areas such Fishergate, The Groves and Lawrence Street, and alumni move back home again, wherever that might be in the country. 

If you’re about to start your undergraduate course, why not make sure moving-stress isn’t another thing to worry about and let the professionals get you there hassle-free and ready to start your new life - with a few home comforts of course!

Here for York’s businesses 

With everything from the biggest brands to fledgling start-ups and pop-up eateries, York’s business community has always been a vibrant, exciting thing to be a part of. We’re proud to remain involved with it and to have helped so many others over the years, whether that’s moving into a new store in Stonegate, or relocating to a shiny new office in York Eco Business Centre. No matter your business, we’ve got the services you need, including: 

  • Office removals (including the option of furniture assembly)
  • Emergency stock delivery
  • Equipment transport
  • Document couriering 

We’re also more than happy to work around your business hours so disruption can be kept to a minimum.

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!

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.

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.
