Wigan and Leigh Couriers

The Gateway Towns

Access Greater Manchester, Lancashire & Cheshire

Well that’s what we’ve come to call them anyway. Because they lie on the border of the counties, Leigh and Wigan connect Greater Manchester, Lancashire and (in Leigh’s case) even Cheshire.

Here at Avango, we’re based on the doorstep and we can often be with you in a matter of minutes. You call us and we can collect and deliver from these great northern towns to anywhere in mainland UK same-day.

New customers get a 10% discount off their first 10 same day bookings

We know that you might not have heard of us before, and maybe you're not sure if we're worth the risk. So here's a little discount to help make it easier.

District Area

Ashton - Atherton - Hindley - Standish - Tyldesley

We’re Right Next Door! Wait, we said that on our Salford page already. But it’s still true. In fact Astley and Tyldesley is our door!

So when your business needs delivery services there’s no better choice really than working with a professional local courier company.

With the exception of Standish, these local towns are so easy to reach and accessible for us that we’re regularly seen buzzing up and down the East Lancashire road and the Atherleigh bypass carrying goods for local customers. It’s our bread-and-butter. Although we don’t carry food items, so maybe we should it’s our pallets and packages!

Sizes, Shapes & Types

Not sure what we can carry? Just ask us

People often ask what types of things we deliver and the simple answer is – almost anything! We’ve carried clothing and cladding, boxes and building materials, fabrics and film equipment, pallets and plumbing supplies. If it needs collecting from one location and delivering to another, we’ll try to find a way to do it.

We need an idea of the sizes, weights and volumes and from there we can start to figure out the answer.

The only things we CAN’T carry are goods classified as Hazardous (ADR). These are things like chemicals, solvents, paints etc. Don’t worry – if you’re not sure if something is hazardous, it probably isn’t. The people that handle those items usually know!

Minimum Charges and Payment Options

Prices shown above are the standard minimum charge for the first 30 miles from the collection address.
