The Tale of 2016


And so another year comes to pass. Another collection of up’s and down’s, victories and defeats and bigger challenges. 2016 certainly had plenty of those for 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…(Read More)

Woman wrapping christmas present

I know some people might think that I have posted this far too early and that “It’s only October”, but if you look carefully I’m not the only one. The Christmas adverts are starting to sneak onto the television, we’re already at the school half term break, and people are more regularly…(Read More)

Winter is coming - Avango Couriers weather montage

Winter is Coming


That’s right everyone. Winter is coming and it looks like it’s in a bad mood.

His name’s Bond, James Bond…apparently. You can’t really live in Britain and not know who that is.

When a delivery gets really big, you need a lorry and just because we’re called ‘Avango’ and typically specialise in van-based courier 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, 2014 has been and gone. 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…(Read More)

Van Driver at Avango Couriers enjoying his work

Earlier this year we had the idea to write an article at the end of each month about what we’ve done and where we’ve been, even if it’s for nothing more than to have a way of remembering all the ups and downs that happen along the way, but unfortunately there wasn…(Read More)
