Avango Couriers. From small beginnings to a reputable nationwide courier service provider
Avango Couriers is a small, family run business that has evolved steadily over the last few years since its initial formation as a local private delivery service.
It was towards the end of 2011 that a friend of ours asked for help trying to create a website to drum up some extra work for himself as a delivery driver. The website worked, in fact better than expected and before long we weren’t just running a website for him, we were assisting with the deliveries ourselves. We launched our own business, ‘Moov-U’ through which we handled all kinds of work from small removals to delivering anything from palletised goods to motorbikes.
Over time, the commercial work grew more rapidly and towards the end of 2013 we decided that we wanted to drop the removals work (not literally, no plates were broken) and instead focus on working directly with businesses on a professional courier level.
In the first quarter of 2014 ‘Avango’ was finally launched and the result is what you see here today. We have worked for some of the biggest companies operating in the UK today, mostly on a sub-contractor level whilst each week we are gaining new customers of our own.
At the start of 2017 we were handling contract work for one of the UK’s biggest parcel networks, whilst also continuing to increase the volume of ad-hoc same day deliveries that we handle through a network of over 1000 chartered professional drivers.
2018 has seen us achieve great new success with a huge customer that supplies products to John Lewis and we are lucky enough to be their only delivery partner, regularly transporting high-value items to stores around the UK.
