Hourly Van for Rent

Renting a van is a great way to assist you in any project where you have to move something big or heavy, for example a house move or clearance, a new kitchen or bathroom or a large gardening project.  Or perhaps you have simply held a big spring cleaning and have a bulk load of items to bring to the skip.  There is a variety of reasons as to why you may want to hire a van.

What is Hourly Van for Rent?

Hourly van for rent is particularly interesting for smaller projects.  For example, if you are looking at picking up your new kitchen or bathroom from your local DIY store, there is generally no need to hire a van for a full 24 hours.  Or even in the case of moving home, if you are well prepared, it should be possible to complete a house move in half a day, again not needing a 24 hour hire agreement.

Where Can I Find an Hourly Van For Rent?

There are a number of companies that offer hourly van for rent services.  It is usually best to use a company that is local to where you are or where you need to be, so you don’t lose unnecessary time having to drive to your destination.  Some of the better known companies offering hourly van for rent include:

  • City Car Club, based in Bath, Sheffield, Bristol, Brighton, London, Leeds, Manchester and Edinburgh
  • Chelmsford Van Hire, based in Essex
  • Hertz, offering rental periods of 3 hours, 6 hours or 9 hours

Hourly Van for Rent Costs

The costs of hourly van for rent are generally not the cheapest, although they are cheaper than renting a van for a full day.  However, as many companies prefer longer term hire and offering significant discounts for this type of hire, you may find that hourly van for rent costs may be almost as much as hiring a van for a full day.

However, there are exceptions to this, particularly if you are dealing with a company that specialises in offering hourly van for rent.  For example, a Luton tail lift van may cost you around £70 per day, but you would be able to hire one for around £15 per hour.  This means that you could use it for around five hours before it actually becomes more expensive than hiring it for a full day.

How Can I Find an Hourly Van for Rent?

Finding an hourly van for rent company is not too difficult, as many companies all across the United Kingdom offer such services.  You could also try to speak to people who may have used van hire companies in the past, such as friends and members of your family, or the new neighbours that have just moved into your street.

As you can see, there are some distinct advantages to finding hourly van for rent, but you might want to make sure that your costs do not exceed those of hiring the van for a full day of course.
