Man Van Hire Northampton

One question we get asked quite a lot is if we can hire our vans out. The simple answer is no, we are not a van hire company. However, if you would like to hire just the van and have us drive it for you from A to B and you and your mates do all the manual labour we would be happy to arrange a competitive hourly quote for you with NO minimum hours. If you need us for only one hour then that is fine. To request this option give us a call or mention that you are willing to do all the loading and unloading on the Request a Quotation page.

Many people believe that they can obtain van rental for £50.00 a day. All we would say is make sure you do the homework first and remember to check the excess insurance should you receive a knock or damage the van slightly. Also remember to check how much of a secured hold they wish to place on your credit card; an amount which they can immediately debit should they deem you have damaged or scratched the van - £750 is the average.

Remember to take your fuel into account and remember when a van rental site advertises prices FROM to check what size of van you are actually getting, my van is a Jumbo LWB transit, the same size as a Mercedes Sprinter and often referred to as an Extra Long Wheel Base (XLWB) which is far larger than a standard Transit, a whole meter longer. Many van rental firms are closed on a Sunday so if you need it on a Saturday you would need to hire it an extra day, from the Saturday to Monday morning, an extra days use and a morning off work to take it back is not the ideal situation for everyone. Finally when you hire a man with a van you are also getting the option to receive extra manpower and someone to assist you.

I recently had to hire a van myself while mine was off the road, below is a genuine break down of how much I was charged and believe me, I did shop around.

For a Sprinter LWB it was £55.00 a day or 7 days for £249.00. A deposit of £250.00 was also required refundable IF the van is returned without a mark on it. I was then offered a chance to waiver the £750 excess for £10 a day which I accepted only to discover I would still lose my £250 should I receive a knock. I questioned what the situation would be for a non fault of my own accident. I was told I would still lose my deposit and it would be down to me to claim it back off the third parties insurance.
