If you haven't yet come across ANYVAN then the chances are that you have been paying too much to get your things delivered from A to B. It is just such a simple idea that makes sense and really works too.

When you next need something delivered put it up onto Anyvan.com for free and transport companies making a similar journey will start to compete against each other to give you the best price, you then simply choose the price that you want to pay from which ever transport company that works best for you. Co-founder Ben Goor explains.

How did your company get started?

The idea came from my business partner and Co-Founder Angus Elphinstone – Angus has a very successful Man and Van service in West London. In 2008 when customers started to be more price aware following the start of the ‘Credit Crunch' they were keen to make use of Angus' fleet of vehicles, not to do a dedicated trip as they would have previously requested but instead when he had a vehicle heading in the direction that they need to go – Angus' black book of customers grew and grew and this was the spark that led to ANYVAN.com

What's the nicest thing a customer has ever said about your company?

A customer once told us that ours is the best website that he has used since GoogleMaps – and of course that we won recognition as the best Website of the Year in 2010 by the good web guide.

What keeps you awake at night?

Searching for ways to make ANYVAN even better, bigger faster and more user friendly.

What's the strangest request you have ever had?

We see absolutely everything moved on ANYVAN. From gold fish to coffins, armchairs to theatre stages students to girlfriends we've seen it all!

What is your coolest product?
