YMWAV has its roots in Cambridge, where our founder Dan started it all. Dan’s love for music and events led to him buying a van in 2012 to transport his DJ equipment after earning a degree in Music Tech. When friends and fellow students repeatedly asked for help with their moves and deliveries, Dan saw a business opportunity: Your Man With A Van.

Before long, YMWAV had built a loyal customer base in Cambridge. By 2014, Dan moved home to Hertfordshire and grew the business into four branches across Hertfordshire, Dorset, and Hampshire.


We are looking for driven, self-sufficient individuals with a genuine passion for providing a great customer experience and making the most of their business.

Franchisees must agree with our company values. These aren’t just tick boxes; they are how we work together. They represent the pillars of our brand:
