When planning your van hire, start by estimating how much space you require, the weight of the items you shall be carrying and time required to complete the journey. Also, work out the distance you are expected to be travelling.
If you are travelling a short distance you may be able to do multiple trips with a smaller vehicle, however a long distance trip may need to be done in a single trip. It may however be cheaper to rent a large van for a single trip than to rent a smaller van for multiple trips when considering fuel costs. If you plan on travelling through London or any motorways, make sure to take into consideration toll roads and congestion charge. Finally, and quite importantly, make sure you are able to park at the location of your trip.
Search around for the best prices available
We recommend searching around for the best prices available. However be aware the prices you are quoted online may not always be the price you pay. There are many possible price additions that are not made clear at booking, these include for example: mileage, insurance, excess waivers or credit card fees. All additional fees should be found in the terms and conditions documentation of your van hire provider. In our case,it’s no hidden costs whatsoever.

What size of vehicle do you need?
When searching for the best deal be aware that the size of vehicle will matter. Smaller vans are suitable if you need more space than the average personal car provides and are generally cheaper. Larger vans on the other hand, are our recommended option if you need to move home, travel, or transport larger items. The price will be slightly higher though.
National van hire companies vs. local small businesses
In order to get the best price for a day of van hire, do search around for smaller local businesses. Online search will usually produce large national companies on the first page of the search engine’s result pages, but not always is the pricing the best you can find in those cases. Search your area using online maps instead, especially focusing on smaller local businesses as they can provide outstanding service with even better pricing.
