Thinking of hiring a van? We’re sure that you will have some questions. Here, we’ve compiled a
list of some of the most commonly asked queries, designed to help you get a clearer picture of
Do I need to hire a van?
Generally speaking, if you’re struggling to complete a task with your usual vehicle, hiring a van
could be the solution. If you’re moving a large load, a van will prevent you from having to make
multiple, expensive trips. And if you’re moving house - or shifting a piece of furniture - a larger
vehicle might be your only option.
How much space will there be?
Most hire companies offer a range of van sizes, from small vehicles not much larger than a
small car to huge Luton vans capable of carrying over 1,600kg. So whatever your requirements,
you can find something to suit.
Do I have to drive it myself?
Yes, most vans offered by hire companies are available on a self-drive basis. However, it may
be possible for some companies to arrange a ‘man and van’ service for an additional cost.
How do I know which van to hire?
To begin, we recommend that you measure any large items that you wish to transport. Then,
you can compare these figures to the load space offered by different vehicles and choose the
one that’s right for you. As a side note, you’ll also need to consider the ‘payload’, or how much
weight an individual van can carry.
How much will it cost?
The cost of van hire varies widely, dependent on a variety of factors such as location, size and
length of hire period. To find out the best prices, use Anything for Hire to connect with a network
