We’ve all heard of the notorious ‘man with a van’ but it’s not often you hear about the female equivalent. So in honour of International Women’s Day (and because they are brilliant), we though we’d introduce you to Van Girls. Firefighter Emma Lanman set up the company in 2011, an all women London-based moving service and they have been going from strength to strength. Literally. These girls are strong. With a crew whose previous work experience includes Royal Artillery, Police, Firefighter, Electrician, Paramedic and Outdoor Pursuits Instructor, your stuff is going to be in a safe pair of hands. I won’t be moved by anyone else these days and I suggest you give them a go next time you need some stuff shifting. Sonya Barber
