I was really stressed on removal day – until James and Adam arrived driven by Ralph, bang on time. They just took away all the worry and did a quick, professional job with such good humor the day ended up being quite enjoyable! I thoroughly recommend them. The day of moving everything was done very fast but safe and everything arrived in one piece! Thank again guys!

I have had the opportunity to hire them recently for a moving at the last minute. From the quotation, booking to the day of moving I have been very pleased. Friendly and really efficient staff with who you feel as a customer that you matter and they listened to your constraints. The day of moving everything was done very fast but safe and everything arrived in one piece! Thank again guys!


Thanks again to Ralph and his guys for moving us out of storage and into our new home. Great service couldn’t ask for more! Two totally satisfied customers.

I used Van Man York for moving out of a 2 bed flat. Didn’t mind a bit of graft so only had one man (Colin) and would certainly recommend them. Very professional and friendly, we got everything packed with no damage and into my new house in 4 hours so the price was was great.


Fantastic, friendly, fabulous service. Great communication from start to finish which is always a bonus. Highly recommended. Many thanks 🙂

Just to say a big thank you to you and your two removal men for coming to my rescue with my removal day last Thursday. Please thank them for me for their Stirling efforts as they had to carry the furniture such a long way.
I and my friends who helped me on the day were very impressed with their professionalism, and I will certainly recommend your firm to my friends.
With many thanks

“We booked Van Man York Removals to move our daughter and her family. We really could not have been happier with the service; the move was completed quickly and efficiently and the removal guys were friendly and professional and coped admirably with the fact that both properties were on the second floor level! Would highly recommend this firm.”

Sandra and Andy

Just a quick note to say how brilliant your team was on Tuesday. They moved us from Lower Ebor to Queen Victoria Street.
They were polite, hard working and a pleasure to have around. They worked very quickly and efficiently, always keeping us updated with what stage they were at.
It’s a fantastic service and I’ll recommend you far and wide.

Sam Taylor

Can I just say your lads are brilliant workers & such nice lads as well.
I will definitely recommend your company to others and should we ever think of moving again would use your services.
Just felt I needed to let you know.
Thanks again 31/07/2018


Just to say how very pleased we were with the service provided by your company in moving furniture for me.
Your staff were pleasant, helpful, very efficient and the whole move was extremely well managed.
I need similar removal services again I will certainly come back to you, and will recommend you if any of our friends in the York area are looking for a removals company.
And thank you for finding a date convenient for me at such short notice,
Best regards


Just wanted to feedback how brilliant the guys were yesterday, they really made a potentially difficult day a lot easier and worked very hard to get us moved as quickly as possible.
Many thanks, we will certainly recommend van man York and use you again for any future moves (thought hopefully not for a good few years!!!).

Andy & Mel

We found your team to be polite, prompt, professional and industrious. They took great care of our possessions and performed above and beyond what we had expected. We would not hesitate to use you again or recommend you to others.

Dave and Caroline Cooper

Hi Ralph,

Just a note to say how wonderful and professional both chaps were throughout our move. They were extremely courteous and they went the extra mile to help especially with the troublesome wardrobe and getting the awkward sofa in. They took great care as if the furniture was their own and their relaxed attitude made us feel much less anxious. I hope they will forgive me for forgetting their names (l’m at that old age) we but wanted you to know how grateful we are to them and what a credit they are to your business. Will certainly recommend in future.

Sue & Micah Colwell

Just to say a thank you as the guys did an amazing job and they were very professional. I’ve no idea how they had the energy as they worked non stop. If we ever need a removals company in the future it will definitely be you guys.


The team in York did a great job with my move. Very calm and professional, they made a generally stressful experience much easier and much more calm than expected! Would definitely recommend them. Shiv and Tom did a brilliant job, thank you!

‘I have used Van Man York twice in the last two years. I cannot praise them highly enough. Ralph Gosine is professional, friendly and really helpful. He answered my numerous questions and put my mind at rest at a stressful time. The team arrived on time, loaded and unloaded my things with care and were courteous throughout. Great organization. Competitive price. Thanks.’

Deborah Swann

Excellent communications prior to move, went over and above helping out and made a tough day actually enjoyable. Would recommend not just for the customer care but also care taken with packing to ensure everything was safe and secure.

Belinda Noda

Excellent service by Van Man. Great service, helpful, supportive and respectful. Careful handling of things. Amazing experience with you guys. Thank you Van Man.

Lilian Saka

Utterly great company. Worked around my deadlines and understood ‘moving is stressful’, massively understanding and did everything in their power to make sure things went smoothly from the word go. Great communication and really nice chaps – I honestly could not recommend them highly enough.

Rhiannon Jude-West

The removal by your firm was the best part of a sorry story. The van was early, the team efficient, polite and very careful. I can recommend them and also your company. Happy New Year, Guy.
