    An excellent service. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful, furniture removal was quick and efficient and carried out with care. Very good value too for a rather complicated job. We will definitely use you again. Thank you.

    10Verified Review

    I can’t recommend Paul more highly. Everything you need someone in this job to be – efficient, flexible, calm, wanting to help, nothing is too much trouble, good communication, honours his word…you are in safe hands. Would definitely book again.

  • To dispose of a partially dismantled piano

    10Verified Review

    This was an unorthodox job. I had tried to dismantle and dispose of a piano, but had hit a problem, leaving me with a (heavy) part-piano to be disposed of. Paul quickly understood what was needed (via some photos), explained that a part piano is more awkward than a full piano, then worked out options for lifting it. All through the preparation, and then on the day, he was helpful, courteous, professional and highly resourceful. Paul and his assistant made the job look straightforward. I will definitely go back to Paul next time I need a "man with a van".

    Cannot recommend highly enough. Paul was so helpful, professional and knowledgeable. Communication was excellent and answered all questions prior to our move. Nothing was too much trouble and our belongings were treated with care and respect. Thank you for making our move so carefree.

Company info

If you are looking for a Man with a Van to collect and deliver a single item or move home then The Van About Town should be on your list to contact!

We offer a friendly, efficient service designed to make the whole experience smooth and stress-free. Based in Ipswich we have moved customers to all corners of Great Britain.

In addition to moving people into their new homes we have also moved hundreds of customers belongings into, and out of storage, moved numerous companies into their new premises and carried out clearances of domestic and commercial premises.

We are confident that we offer a high level of service, however, if we feel that a job is too big for us we will be honest and decline the opportunity, the often used slogan ‘No job too big, no job too small’ is not one that we use.

Rather than us trying to convince you to use us, please read our reviews then ask yourself ‘Why wouldn’t we use them?’
