Factors to consider when renting a van for work

When your livelihood is at stake, it is essential to make informed choices when it comes to hiring a van for work purposes, particularly when hiring long-term. Here are some key considerations to ponder before committing:

  • Choose the right van for your needs

    Size, capacity and practicality requirements will all play a role in your van choice. For instance, if you want the van for transporting people rather than goods, you will need a vehicle with more passenger capacity and less storage space. Your van rental company will help you gain clarity on the ideal vehicle for your business needs.

  • Prioritise reliability, convenience, and service.

    Choose companies that deliver personalised, efficient, and dependable service, like ours. Long-term van hire customers benefit from a dedicated account handler committed to building a personalised relationship with you and your business. The convenience of having a direct mobile number to call for assistance is a significant advantage, as our customers appreciate not having to endure long hold times, unlike with other companies.

  • Choose van hire companies that offer flexible booking options

    Online booking streamlines the process and lets you select the vehicle that best suits your needs. Whether you need a Luton Van for house clearance work or a small van to courier parcels, a user-friendly platform makes finding the right vehicle easy.

  • Suss out hidden fees

    Some rental companies may charge additional fees, such as cleaning fees, late return fines, or additional drive charges, which could add up to a hefty unbudgeted payment at the end of your contract. Luckily, at Pace Van Hire, all our prices are inclusive and fixed to help our customers budget accurately and enjoy a seamless rental experience with us.

  • Flexible hire packages and cancellation policies.

    We understand that plans can change, particularly in business. That’s why it is vital to understand the cancellation policy of your chosen van rental company. Pace Van Hire offers flexible cancellation options and flexible long term van hire packages – you are able to change your vehicle or your package at any time during your contract – to accommodate your changing business needs.

  • Understand rental charges

    Enquire about all the charges involved including the daily/monthly rate, mileage fees, and any additional costs. Some companies, like ours, offer comprehensive van hire packages that include servicing & MOT, road tax, breakdown cover, telematics and dash cameras, fair wear and tear cover, and delivery and collection etc.
