If you need to transport a large item of old furniture down to the tip or even complete a full house removal you have a number of options one of which is to hire a self-drive van. So, what are some of the potential benefits of renting such a vehicle?

Well, you are almost certainly going to save yourself some money when compared with using a professional removal firm as you will no doubt be doing the work yourself or with the help of family and friends who you may decide to buy a drink or two for once the work is completed. There are numerous self-drive van rental companies in the UK so, with so much competition, you are more likely to be able to obtain a competitive deal.

You should also find that you have a choice of vans of varying sizes so you should be able to select a van that is just the right size to meet your requirements. This should also help contain the expense. You should also be able to select a van that is of a size that you are confident to drive giving you peace of mind.

You should expect to find that the van you hire has been well maintained so you should not suffer any mechanical problems. If, however, you did breakdown whilst using the van you should check before ordering the van that breakdown cover is included in the rental price.

Hopefully, you will find that the self-drive van rental company that you choose offers flexible rental terms. For instance, if you only want to hire a van for a few hours then you may be able to hire it for say half a day or a day. Equally, if you need to hire a van for a weekend or say a week than you should also be able to do so.

You should make sure that insurance of the van is included in the rental cost but also check what level of cover is provided. If you feel that the level of cover is not enough then ask how much extra it would cost to increase the level of cover.

As you can see, there are many potential benefits in renting a self-drive van.
