Van hire – For more than just moving home

When you think about van hire, moving home is probably the first thing that springs to mind. But there are lots of other situations where hiring a van can be a convenient, cost-effective and efficient solution.

Home improvement

Whether you’re renovating your entire house or just putting a few shelves up, home improvement projects frequently generate a lot of waste. Waste collection services tend to be expensive, especially if you have a lot of heavy or bulky items to dispose of. By hiring a van, you can carry all your waste to your local tip in one go, and you won’t need to worry about making a mess of your own vehicle.

If you’re thinking of doing a bit of decluttering, you’ll quickly find you have more rubbish than you thought. Again, hiring a van can help you remove any unwanted large items like sofas or tables.

Home deliveries

When you’ve just moved into a new property, you’ll be busy looking for furniture, home accessories and decor to dress up your home in your own personal style. If your shopping list includes large items like beds, wardrobes and heavy appliances, hiring a van would be a good move. Use your hired vehicle to collect your items right away instead of waiting to have them delivered to you.

Going to uni

Moving to uni can call for several car journeys to transport various belongings to the new student accommodation. With many students picking a university that’s at the other end of the country, this can be a major hassle, and the petrol costs will mount up. By hiring a van, everything can be moved in one trip, saving you time and money.

Business transport

Different businesses have varying transport requirements, which can vary according to demand. Trade exhibitions are just one example where extra transport might be needed. Product-based businesses need to transport their goods to be displayed at the exhibition. For service-based businesses, teams of representatives need to be taken to the exhibition to talk to potential clients.

Start-ups and small businesses typically don’t have the budget to buy their own vans. Van hire offers a practical and affordable solution that can deliver a professional service at a much lower cost.

By choosing to hire vans instead of buying them, you can free up much-needed capital and avoid the headache of repair, maintenance and depreciation costs that would be incurred if you were to purchase your own vehicles. Furthermore, with hired vans, you can pick the precise size of vehicle you need and only pay for the time you use the vehicle.

Entertainment services

If you are a musician in a band, a hired van is just the ticket to take you and your fellow musicians to local gigs or to tour the country. Drum kits, guitars and amplifiers are all bulky items that take up a lot of space. When you factor in your band members too, a hired van is the most sensible solution.


Dragging lots of heavy luggage around is the downside of going on holiday. By hiring a van, you can relax in the knowledge that you can pack as much as you like, and enjoy the freedom of driving wherever your fancy takes you, taking as many stops as you like along the way.
