Domestic van hire

Many of customers hire from us when they move house as our vans are ideal. Their high tops allow for taller items to stand up, side doors make loading and unloading easier and there are plenty of hooks to strap things down. Our vans are modern, clean and reliable. They’re easy to drive and have seats for three passengers.

Three sizes to suit different needs

Short wheel base vans are ideal for a may uses including small house removals, garage clearance and moving items such as small sofas and double beds.

Long wheel base vans is ideal for long distance removals as they have good fuel economy. They’re suitable for carrying long or awkward loads where a longer length is more important than carrying a heavier weight.

Luton vans are ideal for house moves with larger items. Their box shaped space and tail lift makes loading and unloading easier with fewer people required. It’s less economical on fuel than our other vans, so best suited for carrying larger loads for short distances.

You can drive all our vans on a standard driving licence.
