Boxes, beds or bikes: whatever you need to move, short term van hire is the perfect choice

Whether you’re relocating to a new house and want to move all your possessions, are taking your bikes on holiday or need some extra transport for your business, a short term van hire is both flexible and very cost effective. There are many different ways in which van hire can be beneficial so we’ve taken a look at some of the most frequent reasons for choosing these versatile vehicles.

Moving house

When you’re moving house, there are so many costs to consider and if you’re watching your budget, it makes sense to hire a van and do your own house removal rather than have the expense of paying a professional removal company. If you can call on family and friends to help out, even better! There are many other occasions when you might need to move some furniture. Maybe you have to clear a house of old, unwanted furniture – or perhaps you’ve been shopping for a new wardrobe or bed and have chosen to collect the items yourself rather than waiting for them to be delivered by the company.

No matter what you’re needing the vehicle for, our service could help. Our 3.5T luton van’s also feature tail lifts, taking out any potential strain on your back from the heavy lifting which would otherwise be required to put bulkier items into the back of a vehicle. These are spacious, the perfect solution for any of your furniture moving requirements.

Renovation and DIY projects

Van rental is a valuable workhorse for any renovation project. From tools to tiles, plasterboard to carpets, you can collect items from your local DIY store as soon as you need them. Local websites are often a good way to source bargain items such as radiators and kitchen fittings: when you’ve spotted the very thing you need on your local Facebook page, hiring a van and collecting the item yourself is often the quickest way to get it home. A van is also the perfect partner for your landscaping and gardening projects, making light work of moving everything from turf and compost to sand, bricks, and paving slabs.

Hire a van for your business

If you need to update the transportation options for your business without tying up your cash by buying or leasing a new van, our range of rental vans offers the cost-effectiveness and flexibility you require. Rather than having a van sitting unused on your forecourt, you are only paying for the period that you actually need it. It could be for just a day, a week or for a longer period, the choice is yours. By choosing to rent a commercial van, you will also gain peace of mind and avoid any worries about costly breakdown repairs and routine maintenance. A modern, clean and well-maintained van is also a great way to portray a professional business image.

Flying The Nest

Are your teenager’s flying the nest and heading off to University? They’ll likely be taking a whole hoard of personal belongings with them, plus all of those extra necessities. Many parents will find themselves without a large vehicle to help them during this process. Hiring a van for the often lengthy trip to their new home can make the whole process much smoother than trying to cram everything into a car, or making multiple trips, might be.

Leisure and hobbies

Sometimes, the family car just isn’t big enough to cope with all your equipment. Whether you’re a cyclist, golfer, a fisherman or a windsurfer, a rental van has plenty of room for all your gear – just pack up and go. Hire a van for a weekend, a week or even longer: hiring a larger vehicle is an ideal choice for getting away from it all on a camping adventure or surfing trip. Not only can we offer vans for this, but if you require more than 2 or 3 seats we have a great range of minibuses and MPV’s which can seat more people plus their equipment!

Community and group trips

If you’ve taken on the responsibility for organising a group trip or holiday, transportation is likely to be a key item on your agenda. While some members of your group might be taking their own cars, not everyone will have their own transport and a van has plenty of room for larger items, whether camping gear, sports kit or sound equipment.
