Why choose us for
affordable van hire in Thamesmead?

No Deposit Options

We don’t require a deposit from our customers booking a van with us. Saddling you with extra costs is unfair and adds more hassle to what we believe should be a simple process. All we’ll ask you to pay is the cost of your rental.

No credit checks

We don’t see the point in unnecessary paperwork. You can hire a van from us without the hassle because we make sure that the process is quick, simple, and straightforward.

Fixed prices

Fixed prices mean no surprises. You’ll always know what you’re paying and that you’re getting excellent value for your money. We’ve been delivering great value for three generations, and we plan on continuing for years to come.

Loyalty scheme

Our loyalty scheme means that for your first five rentals you build credit that you can use to pay for your sixth. This means you could vehicle hire at a great discount or even for free!

One-day weekend hire

We offer a fantastic fleet of vehicles that are available for as long or short a time as you need them. While other firms might require you book out a van for the whole weekend, we see no reason to charge our customers extra for time they don’t want. If you want a van for a day, you get it for a day.

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 Pace Van Hire, you can return your rental van at any time of the day or night, seven days a week. We know that your time is valuable, so we’ve made it easy for you to return your hired vehicle without any hassle.

Excellent availability

Here at Pace Van Hire, we offer an enormous variety of vehicles. Whether you need a nippy micro van or a spacious Luton van, we can always offer the perfect vehicle for your needs. In the past we’ve even able to fill last minute requests, so no matter your needs give us a call.
