Contact Paul Dye; The Van About Town are a friendly, family run removal service based in Ipswich, but we are happy to help you move to or from this area, to anywhere in the UK.

We could write a long self-important introduction telling you how great we are but we don’t need to -if you go to our website and check out our reviews, or look on Google, Trustpilot or Facebook they all contain reviews from genuine customers, and they will give you a far better idea of what we do.

Services that we offer include;

* Man with a Van service – Anytime you need to collect something that won’t fit in your car, such as a sofa or washing machine, give us a call. We can collect items for you that you have bought via eBay, Gumtree or any other source that doesn’t include delivery. We have a tail lift so can collect items that some other carriers can’t.

* Removal Service – We offer a realistic, cost-effective service, from student moves to family homes, full move or part move. We can visit you to discuss your needs and the best way forwards then provide you with a price to suit.

* Moves to/from Storage – Moving items into storage can be daunting, what size unit should you rent? How will you fit it all in? We can help, just give us a call and we can discuss all the options with you.

* House clearances – We can clear a home, whether it is just a few items or the entire contents. Where possible we will donate reusable items to local charities to reduce both the cost to you but also the cost to the environment.

* Waste Disposal – We can take away dry waste. However, we are currently unable to dispose of soil, rubble or garden waste (our van needs to be kept clean and ready to carry customers belongings). We recycle as much as possible to reduce the amount going to landfill and everything is disposed of correctly.

* Furniture Assembly – Need someone to assemble your new flat pack furniture for you? Just let us know what you have, and we can provide a price to build it and get rid of the rubbish afterwards.

If you have any questions or would like us to carry out a free survey/quotation, then please call us.

We are open Monday to Friday 08:00 to 20:00 and Saturday 08:00 to 16:00. Sundays we are closed.

My first time ever doing a move and I had many boxes and furniture. I had many quotes from other providers who were very over priced but I was very happy I chose The Van About Town. Their prices are amazing and they were so helpful. Plenty of room in their van which fit a lot of my belongings including some large furniture. They were efficient, fast and kind. Thank you again for making my experience positive and easy to make a choice. Your service is very much appreciated and I will spread the word. I will definitely use The Van About Town again and again!!!! 🙂

A fantastic service I’ve used a few times now. The guys are always understanding and experienced.
The website is straight forward and easy to use and they always respond quickly. Any changes they’ve always been able to accommodate.
They take care with your items and always pack the van so that your items won’t be damaged.
They can price quite flexibly per quote and I’ve had both big and small jobs.
I’ve recommended them to friends looking to move.

I used The Van about Town for a commercial move I found the website easy to navigate and accept the quote. They were reasonably priced compared with other quotes received.
Arrived on time (even moved a few jobs around to be there a little earlier!). We had a tight turnaround and Paul and his team were very efficient and helpful. They even removed some fixed items from the walls for us and arranged for items to be disposed of.
i would definitely recommend them and if i were moving again that area i would use them again.

I really cannot rave enough about Paul’s service. He recently helped move my daughter from Ipswich to London and we really would never have survived the experience without him. He turned up on time, packed the van very carefully so no items would get damaged and was friendly to talk to on the journey . He did not even complain when the move in time was delayed or that there were a lot of stairs up to her flat. He worked like a trojan and always with a smile. I would highly recommend his service to anyone and I will be using him myself again for my future move. Thank you Paul

Fantastic service, very friendly and courteous.

I’ve just moved on 4th May, on the day of horrible weather and very emotional on personal level. Paul and his assistant were so helpful and understanding, and at the same time very professional.

I would highly recommend this team without any hesitation.

Many thanks and good luck with the future business.

Best regards, Anna x.

I’m currently in the throes of moving house for the first time in 34 years and, unable to see the wood for the trees, decided to put half my belonging into storage. Anticipating a nail biting experience, I couldn’t have been more wrong where Paul and his company are concerned. He phoned me before arrival to let me know when to expect him and the courtesy afforded to me and the care taken with my furnishings was second to none. I highly recommend Van About Town – affordable, efficient, friendly and honest. Thank you Paul and Adam.

Moving house, Paul helped me over 3 jobs – old house to storage / storage to new home / flat to new home required over 3 different days within 3 weeks. All booked to fit in with deadlines of exit times. Simple booking process, confirmed by Paul, arrived on time, Paul and Adam worked tirelessly to empty, pack and refill at new house. Due to my own time constraints I was not present with the storage emptying, but Paul completed the job as planned. I am delighted with the help Paul & Adam gave on the 3 days. Little fuss, good price ph and no added £extra. Highly recommended.

They say ‘moving’ is one of the most stressful things a person can do. Not with The Van About Town! Paul made the process seamless *and* thoroughly enjoyable. I want to move house again, just so I can use them. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough

We have always been a little suspect about using ‘man with a van’ and tended to use self drive, but on meeting Paul we had no hesitation in using him to transport our furniture. Helpful, friendly and professional we would certainly recommend him to friends and family!

Excellent Father son team, very helpful, diligent meticulous care of goods, very reasonably priced, no time wasting just got on with the job
having previously moved at least 36 times!!! was dreading it this time -moving out of second floor with no lifts , short notice…..
one of best removal team I have come across, moved all goods delivered in appropriate rooms, things fixed, even gave lift when I lost my car keys!!
My 8 year old says – very nice, hardworking – we offered them lunch but they said -no,because they were working nice and quick did not want to waste time, break after the job is finished
