About Thirsk (and why we love it here)

You can’t really get more central to beautiful ‘Herriot Country’ than the birthplace of James Herriot himself, and that’s just one of many strings to this famous town’s bow! With the North York Moors practically on the doorstep, several museums and art galleries, a twice-weekly market, and a buzzing community of over ten thousand people (plus an extra 30,000 or so tourists per year) and you can understand why it’s one of our very favourite places to work. 

We’re proud to offer first-class removals services in Thirsk and the surrounding areas, delivering locally, nationally, and even to locations overseas. Since we were founded in York back in 2008, 1 Van 1 Man has grown alongside the needs of Thirsk’s residents to provide a veritable feast of transport solutions! 

Prepare to be bowled over…

Did you know that Lord’s Cricket Ground in London is named after a resident of Thirsk? Thomas Lord was born in 1755 in what is now the town museum.

Who are our customers? 

We’ve had the pleasure of meeting and helping a multitude of different customers over the years we’ve been helping the fine people of Thirsk. From students heading out on their study adventures in York and Leeds, to business owners looking to move into new premises. One of our key growth areas has been in the number of our customers who simply wish to transport a single item but don’t want to go through the hassle of renting a self-hire van, preferring to leave it in the capable hands of your friendly neighbourhood 1 van 1 Man!
