What do you need to hire a van
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.
If you have a UK licence you’ll need to generate a licence check code so that we can view your driving record. You can use the gov.uk site to do this using your National Insurance number, licence number, and the postcode on your licence.
A debit or
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.
Do you need one of our low emission vans?
If you’re on a journey that takes you through a ULEZ zone it could benefit you to upgrade to one of our low emission vehicles. These vans comply with the Euro 6 standards, allowing you to travel through the ULEZ zone without having to pay the daily charge of £12.50.
The price of our low emission vans is exactly the same as our standard vehicles but be aware that you’ll have to pay a deposit and the excess may be higher.

Pace Van Hire – our history
We’ve been operating as a local family business in south London since the 1950s. A lot has changed since then and we’re no exception. We used to go by Ace Rent a Van before rebranding as the Pace Van Hire you see today. We’ve expanded over the years and, in 2018, we opened a new branch in Croydon to better serve the Kingston area. A lot has remained the same though. We’re still a family business, we still put our customers first, and we still provide excellent van hire service.
