To the supportive and professional team at Van and A Man … recently you moved my Mum from a rural property to town.  The whole process was handled with kindness, as it was an emotional time for my Mum.  She would like her appreciation passed on to all who were part of the move.


A HUGE thank you to the entire Van and a Man team, from booking our moving date and time, through to amazing communication from both the office and the boys on the day.  Abe and Rhys were awesome and so organised.  They worked hard (we have some very heavy furniture), efficiently and were smiling and happy, nothing was a bother, even when we said can you take 1 more box?! – several times!

You have an amazing business with awesome staff, keep up the communication and great work.

The service provided by staff was excellent, and would recommend to anyone needing a removal company.


Jonny and Shane were fantastic!  My husband and I shifted from Timaru to a nearby town.  It was amazing to have all our furniture moved in one load versus the five it would have taken if we were to move ourselves.  Jonny and Shane were perfectly on time, considerate, friendly, and took great care of our belongings.  The entire process went incredibly smoothly.  I appreciate their hard work, they truly went above and beyond.  Thank you so much, we highly recommend Van and A Man!


Thanks for the awesome work by both the office and moving teams.  Love your work!!


Man and a Van provided an awesome house moving service. Two guys came with a truck each and worked super hard, were very careful with our furniture and considerate of our needs. We can’t rate them and their service highly enough.

Melonie & Phil Sheppard

Excellent communication before, throughout and after the job. The young guys were friendly, professional, mindful of taking extra care with our property, went out of their way to accommodate our needs and far exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend Van and a Man.

Amanda Rowe

The team were fantastic.  Thank you.


Great service and a fair price … well done to you and your team.


The whole team at Van and a Man (office and in the trucks) really went the extra mile and helped me move late one Friday night.  I recommend them to anyone needing a great local removal team!


I used Van and a Man Nelson and I want to say that Mikey and Blake did a great job!!  It was a very long job as I had so many boxes, containers and other stuff but the guys kept working away at it and they were very careful with the few bits of good furniture I had.  They also moved stuff around inside for me and made sure the heavy boxes they brought into the house were not piled up too high so that I could get at them as they would be too heavy for me to lift.  I can thoroughly recommend Mikey and Blake and Van and a Man!!


“I was unwell but two guys from Van and a Man kindly moved my belongings to a larger storage unit. They were very helpful and arranging this was very straightforward. I was very grateful..”

Wayne Elmsly

“Van and a Man did a great job at moving my furniture. Their attention to detail allayed my fears about my furniture fitting into the rooms, but Van and a Man easily manoeuvered the items in my new home. Thank you!”

Grateful customer – wishing to remain anonymous

“As always, Van and a Man, were great to deal and charged a fair price. A no haste approach to arrange a pickup in Christchurch for delivery back to Nelson. Another national carrier quoted 200% more. And Ali and his office staff even had time for a chat. Support local wherever possible.”

Les Trimnell

“Thank you for the great experience.  Ricky and Lewis were awesome.”


“From the website and enquiry/ booking stage right through to getting the bill – the team at Van and a Man Nelson were fabulous! Huge credit to the friendly drivers Jonny and Shaun who assisted me with my fussy move (multiple pick up points & a tricky driveway!) – they accommodated everything – went the extra mile – and all with a huge smile on their face and some good banter to boot! Great price and value for money and would definitely recommend the entire service and team at Van and a Man Nelson! Thank you all again :)​”
