Key points to consider when hiring a van.

Who can drive the Van?

Age – Some companies have an age restriction for the driver, usually its 25 years old +.
Points – if you have 9+ points on your licence some companies do not let you hire.

What Documentation do I Need to Hire a Van in the UK?

Hiring a van is fairly straight forward, but you will need the following:

  • You will always need to provide your driving licence.
  • a credit or debit card for your excess deposit.

And, occasionally:

  • Some companies also require a utility bill to prove your home address.

Be prepared and find out what you need to take with you beforehand.

Do Hire Vans Come with Insurance, or do I Need to Arrange my own Van Insurance?

It’s always worth shopping around for insurance, there is  a great website called MoneyMaxum which compares different suppliers, its almost always cheaper doing it this way.

Hitting the Road

Speed Limits – Watch out, they are different for vans!
Single carriageways: 50mph – 10mph less than a car.
Dual carriageways: 60mph – 10mph less than a car.
Motorways: 70mph – the same as a car.

Van Size Restrictions

  • Height: Most vans are at least 2m high ,and will not go under most car park height barriers.
  • Make sure you know the height of your van, and keep an eye out for height restrictions.
  • Width: Watch out for 6′ 6″ width restrictions. Luton vans will not fit through, and many panel vans will not either – and if they do, it will be very, very tight.
  • Avoid these width restrictions wherever possible.
