The name Snape might come from the Old Norse for an area of boggy, uncultivated land, but the village today is anything but a damp squib! Ideally located between the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors and with some of Yorkshire’s finest countryside on the doorstep, we’re always happy to be in the area, whether that’s helping out a resident with a removals task, or enjoying a wander around the lovely grounds of Thorp Perrow when we have some time off.
If you’re keen to follow in the footsteps of famous Snape residents Cecily Neville (mother of both Edward IV and Richard III) and Catherine Parr (Henry VIII’s sixth and final wife) by moving into the village, well, we commend your taste! With a fine selection of stone cottages to choose from, a wisteria-clad pub to frequent, and easy access to the A1, we can certainly understand why demand for our expertise in the DL8 area has only increased in recent years.

Because of the marshy land on which it was built, the now partly derelict Snape Castle doesn’t have any traditional foundations, instead it sits on massive oaken piles which were driven into the ground around 700 years ago!

Your peace of mind is of paramount importance to us, which is why, unlike many other companies, we include full public liability and goods in transit insurance as standard with all of our jobs. Accidents are thankfully extremely rare, but we want you to know your goods are in safe hands.
Much like the Romans who built the villa in Snape many centuries ago, here at 1 Van 1 Man we’re proud of our ability to innovate and adapt. Though for us that means adapting to the developing needs of our customers, rather than acclimatising to the famously changeable Yorkshire climate from a Mediterranean one!
We can offer:
We pride ourselves on having the best local knowledge in the business - it’s fair to say we know Snape and Bedale like the back of our hands! Despite our strong ties to Yorkshire, having operated in the area since 2008, we know that our customers sometimes need us to help them beyond the borders, which is why we’re happy to work locally, nationally and even internationally, wherever and whenever you need us most.
Please note that although we're based in York, all our services are offered nationwide - including Snape. It doesn't matter what you're moving, or where you're moving to and from - we have it covered with our highly rated, flexible service.

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!
