The benefits of self-drive van hire
Whether it’s for a weekend trip or you’re moving house, self-drive van hire is one of the most flexible, cost-effective ways of getting from A to B. However, some people don’t see this as a way to save yourself valuable time and money.
That’s why this month we’ve explained some of the key ways you can benefit from self-drive van hire. Remember, if you think there’s anything we’ve missed, then let us know in the comments at the end of this article.
From start to finish, the process of hiring a self-drive vehicle is hassle free and straightforward. A specialist team of advisors will help you complete all the relevant documentation, and will even undertake a pre-collection inspection so you know that you’ll be safe whilst you’re on the road.
With great value for money, a transparent, honest service and competitive pricing, hiring a vehicle helps reduce the stress and worry that could come with using your own vehicle.
Self-drive hire companies regularly valet, service and maintain their fleet, so you can rest assured that on collection day, your van is safe and has that “new van” smell.
At the same time, if you’re travelling back from a holiday, then some companies do offer a delivery and collection service. This does need to be organised in advance, so make sure that you mention this when you’re inquiring about a specific vehicle.
Flexible rental terms
You may only need your rental for a day or you might need it for a longer period of time. Either way, self-drive van hire offers you flexible rental terms to meet your own specific requirements.
Many self-drive hire companies offer special weekend rates too, where the price of specific vehicles is reduced. Not only does this save you money, but if you’re thinking about buying a new van in the future, it gives you the chance to take it for a test drive.
When you make a long journey, the last thing you want to be worrying about is driving a vehicle that could breakdown halfway through the drive. When it comes to self-drive van hire, this isn’t the case.
You can rest assured that each and every vehicle regularly goes through maintenance and health checks to ensure that it’s safe and legal to drive. Self-drive rental companies operate a large fleet of vehicles, so they need to make sure that their cars and vans are in top condition. Not only that but if the worst happens and you do happen to break down, roadside assistance is also available to get you moving again.
Greater choice of vehicles
Whether you need a smaller city vehicle to navigate the tight twists and turns of urban areas, or you need a larger vehicle to transport you and the family over the festive period, you’ll always have a greater choice of vehicles with a self-drive company.
We all know that sometimes circumstances can happen that are outside of your control. You might get stuck in traffic, you might be caught behind an accident or you might break down. If you’re driving your own vehicle, you’re very much left to your own devices.
However, this isn’t the case when it comes to a self-drive vehicle. You’ll always be able to get in touch with a member of the team who will be on hand to help in any way they can.
