Why choose us for
affordable van hire in Downham?

No Deposit Options

We don’t require you to pay a deposit when you hire one of our vans. You only need to pay for the rental itself, which we think is fairer and more affordable for our customers in Downham.

No credit checks

We don’t carry out credit checks on any of our customers. We want everyone to get out on the open road without any hassle. At Pace Van Hire we understand that the most important thing to you is getting on with your job, not standing around filling in unnecessary paperwork.

Fixed prices

Fixed prices mean no surprises. We keep our prices fair and consistent so that you always know what you’re paying for our services. You can trust us to deliver excellent value for money across all our vehicles.

Loyalty scheme

We know that our valued customers are the lifeblood of our business, which is why we want to give something back. After five rentals, you can put your credit towards your sixth rental – meaning you could rent a van entirely for free!

One-day weekend hire

If you only need the van for a day, you’re wasting money by hiring it for the entire weekend. One–day weekend hire is perfect for when you only need the van for a short period of time. You can save money and effort and drop it back at any time – no waiting around until Monday morning.

Low insurance excess

Experience affordable van hire with low excess starting at just £500. Enjoy low excess reduction rates from just £24.99 per day, reducing to £14.99 for hires of 28 days or more, ensuring you always get the best value.

24/7 drop off

With 24/7 drop off, you can return your rented van at any time of the day or night, 7 days a week. We know that your time is valuable, so we want to make sure you can return your vehicle on your terms.

Excellent availability

We have an enormous fleet of vans that are available on a short-term and long-term basis. Whether you need it for a single day or weeks at a time we can accommodate your needs.

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

credit card

We’ll give you a call to confirm your booking and take payment. We don’t accept cash but do accept all major credit and debit cards. Keep your details handy for when we call.
