What People Say

We rented a van from them for a day. The communication was easy, they explained everything about driving it, there was even an option to leave it after working hours which was very convenient for us. It was a new van, clean and also economical to drive. We didn’t have any problems with them and the van. There is also a place to leave your car if you come by one. Overall, if we need another van for hire, we would definitely use them again!

Cannot rate this establishment highly enough. I do a once weekly voluntary day for the local food bank and these guys supply us with the van that enables us to distribute the food to the hubs, thus providing the food for issue during the week. The staff here are absolutely brilliant, very professional, polite and friendly. The vehicles are outstanding, always clean, tidy and serviceable. This is the "go to" place if you need a vehicle, deffo a five star company that cannot be recommended highly enough.

Rented a few vans from here in the past, helped some chicks move house. Quality vans, good value. You can drop van outside and post keys over the weekend or when closed. Leave your car in their compound while driving around in van which is very useful. Lots of van options. Very helpful staff.
