5 Tips for a Trouble-Free Van Hire

Moving has its share of frustrations and stress irrespective of how well you may plan. To reduce stress and ensure everything goes right, National Truck & Van Rental offers a few useful tips for van hire.
  • Choose a Reliable Van Rental Company – Well-maintained and clean vans make for a smooth and stress-free move. An established van rental company cares about its customers and reputation. Ask friends and neighbours for suggestions. Read online customer reviews to determine service quality.
  • Determine How Much Stuff You Have – One way to do this is by the number of bedrooms you have. Most customers say it works for them. Although, if your rooms are packed tight with furniture and other items, it might be preferable to consider a larger van.
  • Don’t Forget the Items in the Shed – Keep in mind the bikes, lawn mowers etc in the shed or any possessions you may have stored in your garage. Also remember to calculate some extra space for large, odd-sized or delicate items.
  • Do Not Base Your Decision Solely on Price – Rates that are too low are usually cheap for a reason! Inspect the van to ensure the vehicle is sturdy and reliable. Features like a tail lift or a side door option are convenient and make your move easier.
  • Is the Rental Company’s Location Convenient? – Having to drive a long distance to pick up and drop off the rental van can be inconvenient and time-consuming. A location with easy access to all major routes reduces your time and effort.
