Man with a Van and a Cam! #1

Here’s my first little Man with a Van and a Cam compilation. Just a few snippets of things I’ve caught driving around what’s mainly Dublin, Ireland. This one includes footage at Lidl and even overtaking a nice Lamborghini on the M50!

Driving to IKEA Dublin for Deliveries

One of the services offered at VanTasks is our “We Shop, We Drop” service where we’ll go to shop for any bulky items and deliver them direct to you. Doing IKEA Deliveries is certainly the most popular given that IKEA don’t offer any online shopping service, customers can trust us, depositing thousands of Euro for […]

Mini 0801 -VS- iTronics ITB100HD, Dash Cam Compare

I recently received delivery of another dash cam. The iTronics ITB100HD I had in the van was acting up, sometimes it didn’t turn on properly although there is adequate power getting to it. I tried it in another van which has another ITB100HD in it which is working perfect, so it’s the camera itself and […]

Amyl Upright Piano, Delivered!

The Piano on offer in this listing is an Amyl Upright. It’s part iron frame, overdamped and overstrung. I’m not sure of it’s age but the house I collected it from gave it good use as the children were learning to play on it. It has been tuned recently but is in need of another […]

Hamilton Chicago Manualo Upright by Baldwin

I collected this from a community group who didn’t use it regularly enough to warrant keeping it. It hasn’t been tuned in some time but I had a tuner look […]

No claim against me for rear-end case!

So following on from my previous post where I rear-ended a brand new 2012 Toyota Avensis, a collision where in the vast, vast majority of cases, the driver behind is to blame, the eventual outcome was in my favour. Although I strongly believed the driver in question pulled out far too soon, it was always […]

Be careful who you choose to teach you to drive!

I spotted this driving instructor on the M50 yesterday sitting in the overtaking lane. I gave him a little flash to see if he’d move and a tiny beep driving by too but he seemed completely oblivious. I know it doesn’t seem like much but this is technically a driving offense and you can be […]

Emergency Man With a Van Planning After Blowout!

I had my second sudden blowout yesterday on the way to delivering a load  for a customer. The first one was with the Opel Astra Van which had brand new tyres, the tyre which blew yesterday wasn’t new, but had a huge amount of thread left so wasn’t expected at all. As luck would have […]
