The first thing you should know about Mike who runs Van Man Removals is that he takes immense pride in his business. This pride filters down into everything the business does: from this website to the smart fleet of removal vans it runs and the staff it employs.
The backbone of Van Man Removals is its incredibly loyal and hard working team of staff. Each team member of understands and embodies the ethics of the company and make exemplary ambassadors.
Van Man Removals was founded from humble beginnings in 2008. Mike quickly found a niche for his way of running a removals company: only the best staff, the best vehicles and the best service would do. These values, coupled with fairer prices, were a great combination and resulted in the business you see today.
To compliment this ethic Van Man Removals was quick to join the Devon County Council Buy with Confidence scheme and has been approved by its trading standards team for many years now. Terms and conditions for this scheme can be found - HERE

Van Man Removals has bespoke removals insurance for the goods it carries, public liability for the areas it works in, and employer’s liability insurance for the staff it employs. Of course the fleet is fully insured by a specialist removals policy. Mike has chosen to published copies of these policies as in the links.
Our drivers are assessed independently annually on their driving, and our vans are fully GPS tracked.

A word from Mike
We are constantly striving to exceed customer expectations and have added additional services to our portfolio over the last few years. This includes having specialists in piano moving on our team. We also offer full and part-packing services as well as export wrapping.
As things stand Van Man Removals is a member of the Federation of Removers. There is a small selection of trade bodies for the removals industry with slightly varying benefits. We have looked at what they each stipulate for membership and surpassed the main criteria for all of them. But by choosing to remain independent from other trade bodies, some of which carry expensive membership, we can continue to offer our customers the best value for money.
We have more than 100 exceptional customer reviews on Freeindex, Google, Facebook and the Buy With Confidence website and many of these can be seen on our testimonials page.
In summary, I and all my team members love what we do. If you would like to discuss your move then just give a call or email and I will get back to you as quickly as possible
The removal vehicles we use are all modern and fully serviced and maintained, coupled to that we are fully insured up to £50,000 goods in transit removals insurance and take an extreme pride in what we do. We treat all items as if they were our own.

Mike and his team have now completed two removals for us. The first was in February when they moved my 89-year-old father from Epsom to Sidmouth. They were brilliant! It wasn’t an easy job to carry a heavy surgical bed up to the top floor via narrow, winding stairs. (It was too big to fit in the lift). They persevered and carried the bed into my dad’s room without any mishaps. The second move was just a few weeks ago. Apart from the contents of our house in Epsom we also needed to move a grand and an upright piano. Darryl and Leon expertly carried out the removal to our new home in Sidmouth. Garry arrived some hours later having endured the holiday traffic but still worked until 8pm unloading our belongings. They all did a fantastic job, were polite, caring and extremely hard working. We would fully recommend Vanman removals. 17th August 2017

Although we only moved a short way across Exeter, Mike and co handled our large and difficult furniture admirably, and showed excellent resourcefulness when we weren't initially provided with the keys needed to access the entire property. They were also very nice and cheerful. 13th June 2015

Just had a two-stage removal from two locations down to Truro yesterday and Dan from Van Man Exeter did a fantastic job. Everything went incredibly smoothly and quickly with no delays whatsoever. Really impressed. Best quote as well. Many thanks to all concerned. 5/5 stars, would definitely recommend you! 6th November 2015
