Commercial and domestic van hire in London

Moving home from Bethnal Green to Blackfriars? Need to make an urgent delivery from Canary Wharf to Camden?
Whatever you need, Van Hire London are ready to help with our comprehensive fleet of vehicles.

Since we first launched, we’ve been working hard to develop a reputation as the south-east’s most trusted source for self-drive van hire. How?
By being on hand to ensure that you and your valuable goods get from A-B on time, on budget, and in a vehicle that perfectly suits your needs.

A vast selection of vehicles to choose from

What really sets us apart from the crowd is that we’re on hand to cater for everything from the smallest of delivery jobs to the largest of home or office removals thanks to our wide range of vehicles.

Few other van hire firms offer quite the same freedom of choice when it comes to selecting a van that’s perfectly designed to get your stock or prized possessions from where they are to where they need to be.

With the opportunity to pay only for what you need, no more, no less, you enjoy greater savings the next time you need to hire a van.

At the larger end of the range, our Luton Box Van makes the ideal solution for house removals, switching businesses premises, for for businesses with a heavy load of stock to deliver.

Need something much more compact? At the opposite end of our scale, you’ll find the powerful Ford Connect Transit van, perfect for zipping across London with an urgent package or other small items.

In between, we offer both short and long wheelbase vehicles, and even vehicles perfect for your work crew,, with six seats and equipment hire included as standard.

Terms & Conditions

Firstly, we ask that for legal and insurance reasons, you are at least 21 years old to hire a van from us.
Secondly, we ask that you bring both the paper and card parts of your driver’s license with you. We ask that you have held a full, clean drivers’ license for a minimum of 12 months to hire a van, if you are 25 or older, and for two years’ if aged 21-24 or hold an overseas license.

Van hire for all occasions

The one-size fits all approach may work for many things, but not when it comes to transporting your goods across London. After all, that small ford just isn’t going to cut it when you’ve got several large, bulky items that need to be moved securely. On the other end of the spectrum, the last thing you want is to be paying over the odds for a huge, long-wheel base van when you only have a few small parcels to deliver to your clients. It’s for this reason that we take pride our extensive range of vans for hire: It helps us to help you get behind the wheel of exactly the kind of van you need, no matter what you need it for. Not sure which of our vehicles best suits your next job? Don’t worry about it. Our friendly, helpful team are only a phone call or email away. Talk to us today, and we’ll be glad to discuss your requirements, helping you hire a van that’s right for you.

Self-drive van hire for personal use

Hiring a self-drive vehicle not only saves you money by avoiding the costs of paying for extra man power, but it also gives you greater control and flexibility over how you manage the job at hand.

There’s no waiting around for your driver to arrive, no rushing around to get everything done before the clock expires and takes you into paying additional fees just to get the last load finished, and no concerns that your valuable cargo will be mishandled, mislaid, or damaged in transit.

Instead, when you collect your hired van from our London office, you can enjoy the freedom and peace of mind that comes from knowing you can do things your way.

Cut the cost of business deliveries with regularly contracted hire service

More than just house moves

Though moving house is always a popular reason why so many of our domestic customers choose Van Hire London (and one we’re always happy to help with), it isn’t the only reason they turn to us.

If you’re still not sure about which of our vehicles will best suit your requirements, we can always spend some time discussing this with you before putting our experience and expertise to work in recommending a van.

From there, simply tell us when you want to book, and how long for, and we’ll take care of the rest.

On the day, arrive at our office with a copy of your drivers’ license, insurance details and payment method, and we’ll hand over the keys.

Taking a trip?

With so much going on across London Borough, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to finding things to see or do.

Perhaps you’ve got family visiting from out of town and would love to take them on a tour of the capital without the hassle and expensive of taking several cars.

Or it might be that you’re hoping to treat your company’s VIPs to an evening out at the theatre.
