So it all started back in 2012. I was at University studying for a Music degree. And I was very interested in events, concerts and festivals, particularly sound and lighting. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t like a good party! I made it my mission to acquire as much equipment as I could afford, including the Van, to lug it about.

What started as a small disco setup soon evolved into a much-loved stage. Although making a living wasn’t my main focus at the time, it provided plenty of insight into the business world and, importantly, the skills to pack a van within an inch of its life.
My parents also ran businesses, my Mum a Jewellery designer, and my Dad a Garden Machinery supplier. Sometime toward the end of 2012. Dad asked if I would deliver a Lawnmower. So, of course, I said yes. It was then that he said, you could make a business out of this. I wondered. I had most of the skills; I love working with people and a bit of a perfectionist. Surely it would work?

I put my thinking cap on and researched the industry, considered potential names, sketched logos and pondered all the things I’d need to start a man with a van business.

In the beginning, I certainly wasn’t aware just how important things like good quality straps or double-layer blankets would be, nor did I know I needed a taller Van for all those American fridges!

Still, I was confident, excited and willing to give it my all. So on the 10th October 2012, Your Man With A Van was born.
Over the next seven years, I had so much fun and plenty of adventures. Of course, there were a few tricky manoeuvres, the occasional drives to Spain, but my favourite part was meeting so many lovely people.

By late 2019, Your Man With A Van had served over a thousand customers and travelled more than 150k miles. 

But what was next???

Stay tuned...
