Why is Hiring a Transit Van More Environmentally Friendly?

Whether you’re hiring a van to move house or transport stock from one location to another, it’s likely that you’ll be managing a large number of items. Instead of asking multiple people to chip in, or manoeuvring those goods in multiple trips using a smaller vehicle, choosing to hire a van can enable you to complete the job in one, singular trip. This, in turn, reduces your carbon footprint and speeds up the entire process significantly.

At Caversham Vehicle Hire, we tailor our solutions to our valued customers, putting their safety and ethics at the forefront of everything we do. We stock vans in a variety of sizes, so you can select the right size van to suit the requirements of the task at hand. From completing odd jobs to large-scale domestic or commercial projects, we can provide the right van to suit your needs.

What Are the Cost Benefits of Hiring a Transit Van?

Choosing to hire a van instead of purchasing one outright can save you a significant amount of money in the long run. Whether you’re looking to opt for a short or long-term hire period, there are a number of reasons why renting a van could prove cost-effective.

These include:

No Maintenance or Repair Costs


If you’re simply looking to hire a van for a day, it’s unlikely that maintenance costs will be a huge determining factor for you.

However, if you’re going to require access to a large vehicle for a long period of time, hiring a van comes with a multitude of advantages in terms of costs.
By utilising the services of a rental company, you won’t have to worry about maintaining the vehicle, or the often hefty costs that come with doing so.


The cost of hiring a van for the day is a fraction of the cost of purchasing one outright, offering an affordable solution that gives you access to the vehicle for as long as you need it.

At Caversham Vehicle Hire, we’re pleased to offer our customers excellent deals for both short and long-term van hire periods. If convenience is key when it comes to managing the important tasks in your life, hiring a transit van could prove to be the ideal solution for you.
