Environmentalist Movers

Scruffy Activist

Back in 2001 founder Tim Bishop, fresh from protesting outside uranium mines in central Australia, was studying renewable energy at Swinburne TAFE in Hawthorn. Since then Man With A Van has helped work towards a cleaner more renewable world with various environmental initiatives.

Greenfleet

Since 2006 we've been carbon offsetting our entire fleet of vans and trucks by planting native trees with Greenfleet (that's 3,820 trees and counting!). Here's a link to an article about the drastic difference that's made to Minjelha Dhagun, a forest in Queensland.

Paper Free

We've virtually eradicated paper use in our office, and on the road, with a custom-made entirely digital mobile scheduling system, no trees have to die to move your house!

Shipping Containers & Solar Power

Our awesome new HQ (to be completed Q4 2018) will be constructed entirely from recycled shipping containers and incorporate both a photo-voltaic solar array for electricity and a solar hot water system. It's gonna be rad!
