Welcome to The Van About Town

The Van About Town are a friendly, family run removal service based in Ipswich but we also cover the rest of the UK too.

Our aim is to provide a quality man and van service that is efficient and cost effective so that customers use us again and again.

We always aim to be on time and to make sure that all of your items arrive in the same condition as they were in when we collected them. To help with this our van, a Ford Transit with a Luton body, has a carpeted floor, in addition, blankets and straps are used to protect and secure your items.

Every customer has the chance to leave feedback furthermore it is something that we encourage, as we want to have the best reputation of any local man and van company.

Please call us to discuss your requirements, check availability or for a free tailored quotation – regardless of whether you want an item delivered or a full removals service.

  • We’re fully insured.
  • We’re approved by Suffolk Trading Standards.
  • We’re careful to strap furniture securely and use protective blankets to prevent damage in transit.

We do single items to small house moves – and everything in between. We’ve even moved a two metre long pig statue before!


We use a pit stand and specialist straps designed to secure motorcycles.

  • We were more than pleased with how quickly and efficiently Paul and his son Adam removed our house contents. They were friendly and pleasant and we would highly recommend them to anybody. It is a very stressful experience moving house and because Adam and Paul were so relaxed throughout, we started to feel more relaxed too. A great team.

Super helpful, right from the booking stage to completing the job. Will definitely be using The Van About Town for all future jobs. Thank you so very much Paul for making what seemed like an impossible situation so much easier.
