If you need to hire a van in Croydon, you know where to find us.

What do you need in order to hire a van
from us in South Croydon?

A valid UK or EU driving licence

It’s obvious but it’s still easy to forget. The licence needs to have been valid for at least two years and if you have an EU licence or a UK paper licence rather than a photocard you’ll need to show additional photo ID.

Proof of current UK address

This doesn’t have to match your licence, it just needs to be something official like a recent utility bill, bank statement, or a letter from HMRC. It can be physical or digital and it’s best if it’s from the last three months. If you are an EU licence holder, you’ll need to be a UK resident.

A licence
check code

If you have a UK licence you’ll need to generate a licence check code so that we can view your driving record. The site lets you do this using your National Insurance number, licence number, and the postcode on your licence.

A debit or
credit card

We don’t accept cash so you’ll need to have a card ready when we call you back to confirm your booking. That’s the point where we’ll be asking for payment so it’s helpful to have your card details to hand.
