SAME-DAY EXPRESS DELIVERY

About Us

How it began

In the beginning, there was van...

Let’s go back many years, to 2011. A friend of ours asked for help trying to create a website. The intention was to drum up some extra work for himself as a delivery driver. It worked, in fact better than expected.

Before long we weren’t just running a website for him, we were doing the deliveries ourselves. We launched our own business ‘Moov-U’ and started handing all kinds of work, from small removals to deliveries of palletised goods.

Over time, the commercial work grew more rapidly. 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.

Present Day
Avango has developed into is a small but capable, family run delivery business. We have evolved steadily over the last few years since our initial formation as a local private delivery service and we’re proud of what we’ve achieved.

Pivotal Business Moments - 2014

From Sole-Trader to 'Avango' Rebrand

In the first quarter of 2014 ‘Avango Couriers’ was finally launched and the result is what you see here today. It’s not been an easy path and we’ve taken more than our fair share of challenges along the way.

We’re still not a big company, but what we are is lean, efficient and our prices are competitive.

Avango was launched

and went on to steady progress through working with other couriers on a sub-contract basis for the next 12-18 months

Pivotal Business Moments - 2016

Gaining trust of large corporations

We won our first major client in 2015 but 2016 was when our brand started to get noticed more.  We have worked for some of the biggest companies operating in the UK.

We’ve completed contract work for one of the UK’s biggest parcel networks, handled daily distribution to John Lewis stores and delivered very high-value production line equipment to UK Car manufacturers.

Extending the brand, say hello to Couriers TV

Couriers love to talk. Whenever we’re waiting around, which is quite often, it’s a great chance to chat to each other about all kinds of stuff. We realised that this conversation could be broadcast out to many more people, and so we launched Couriers TV in late 2017, but it really took shape in 2018.

Pivotal Business Moments - 2020

Pandemic creates panic, Avango powers on

We don’t need to tell you what happened in 2020. Literally everyone on earth was involved. But in difficult times we did what needed to be done. Couriers were classed as keyworkers from 2020 due to the fact that goods HAD to keep moving. And we kept moving them.
