Our journey from Ace Rent A Van
to Pace Van Hire

Our history in the industry goes back a long way – we’re a third-generation family business and have provided our care and support to locals since the 1950’s. Evolving with the times, we know how to deliver a seamless, hassle-free service that our customers can rely on. That’s why in 2022, we decided it’s time for a change of pace.

You may know us as Ace Rent A Van or Ace Van Hire, one of the largest van rental companies south of the river. However, we’ve decided to step it up a notch. We’re not waving goodbye to Ace Van Hire, we are simply elevating our services to be bigger and better. We may have a new name, but we still share the same values. Our client base is increasing, and our fleet is bigger than ever. It’s this change of acceleration that has led us from Ace Rent A Van to Pace Van Hire.

No Deposit Options

We care about you’re your cashflow. Just like when we were Ace Rent a Van, we won’t require a deposit unless you opt for our deposit option saving yourself £10/day!

No credit checks

When it comes to renting your van, we know there can be urgency to get on the road. We will never hold you up with unnecessary lengthy paperwork or credit checks, keeping our hire process simple and speedy.

One-day weekend hire

Low insurance excess

Our low emission
rental vehicles

With the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) covering all areas within the North and South Circular roads, it’s likely that your journey will venture into the chargeable area. If so, you could find that you’ll benefit from an upgrade to one of our low emission vans.
Meeting with Euro 6 standards, these vehicles emit safer fumes which contribute towards improving London’s air quality. In turn, this will allow you to enter the zone without paying the daily charge of £12.50.
Whilst the cost of these vehicles remain the same, there will be a higher excess as well as the requirement for a deposit upon booking.

What do you need
to hire a Pace Van Hire vehicle?

The following items will be required upon collection:

  • A valid UK or EU driving licence
  • Proof of current UK address
