Who we are

The UK’s No’ 1
European Removalist

Established in 2007, VanOne is the UK’s most popular European removal company, responsible for over four thousand moves per year to 29 European countries. We employ 47 staff and operate a fleet of 41 Renault Master and Fiat Ducato vans. Our customers rate us as not only the cheapest European removalist, but also the most reliable.

VanOne operates as a low cost, efficient and no frills service. This means we focus on the core elements of a removal. As we see it, there are just three elements that make up a successful removal, they are: price, security and service. By focusing on these, we’re able to offer affordability, peace of mind, and a pleasant moving experience to all our customers.

Also, when we say we move our customers from anywhere in the UK to Europe, we really mean it: we carry out removals from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We’ll also never turn down a removal based on the distance or complexity of the journey – so if you want to move from the Scottish Highlands to Sicily, or from the west coast of Wales to the North of Norway, we’ll take you there.

Customer Service

Pricing Transparency and Excellent Communication

We believe the essence of any great removal service is clear and honest communication with its customers. That’s why we make sure our customers are 100% clear on what to expect from us. But communication isn’t a one-way street, so we also make sure we are 100% clear on our customers’ requirements. Therefore a removal coordinator assigned to your service will:

  • Discuss your needs with you in detail
  • Propose the right service level for you
  • Make all the charges clear to you
  • Instruct the removal team of your needs
  • Keep you informed throughout the move
  • Provide post purchase service
