The Tale of 2016


And so another year comes to pass. Another collection of up’s and down’s, victories and defeats. 2016 certainly had plenty of both for those of us here at Avango towers (that’s a mythical building by the way, just in case you weren’t sure). The early part of each year is typically…(Read More)

But occasionally something else can come along just to add a little variety to the…(Read More)

There have been numerous reports recently that Spring is on its way and some even claim it’s already arrived. Well we finally have proof that the rumours are true after we were able to get photographic proof of a sure sign that winter is almost over. In America some people think that Punxsutawney Phil…(Read More)

Just because we’re called ‘Avango’ and typically specialise in van-based logistics and delivery services, it doesn’t mean we can’t find a solution when the call comes through for something much larger.

The Tale of 2014


And there it was, gone. 365 days in the blink of an eye. This year has been extraordinary for us here at Avango Couriers. Whilst we officially started the year still trading as ‘Moov-U’ (pronounced ‘Move You’), we had formulated a plan in late 2013 to transform and re-brand into Avango Couriers as…(Read More)
