Van Rental in Dublin for the Busy Summer Events Season

Tips to Help Make Sure Your Summer Event Goes Smoothly with Van Rental in Dublin

While the Irish weather may not always agree, summer is almost upon us! Here in Dublin, we can't wait to start attending all of the exciting events and festivals of the season. But what if you are the one organising one or all of these events? How do you make sure everything goes smoothly and is as stress-free as possible?

National Truck & Van Rental is experienced in providing vehicles for huge events. In the past, we have also catered for the vehicle needs for big events like U2 concerts and the Special Olympics. We have also helped organisers at small fetes and festivals to move equipment to and from their venue. You can trust us to provide the advice and rental van you need, no matter how big or small the occasion.

Making Sure You Get the Vehicle You Need On the Day You Need it

Hiring a van or truck for your event means you do not have to rely on someone else to transport your vital equipment to your venue. Whether you are heading to the village green, a concert hall or a farmer's field, everything your event needs to set up and function properly can be taken to the location efficiently. However, since summer is such a busy season for events, it is vital to book your Dublin van rental now. That way, you can get the vehicle that best suits you on the day or days you need it.

Below are some useful tips to follow when thinking about van rental in Dublin for a summer event:

  • The right size: Depending on the nature of your event, you may be carrying a lot of equipment to your venue. Events may require everything from tables and chairs, to heavy musical equipment. Opting for a vehicle which fits everything in could save on the effort of making several trips.
  • Catering: Unless you are bringing in outside caterers, you may have to think about getting food and drinks to your event, as well as keeping them fresh. Our special refrigerated vehicles come in a range of sizes and cooling options, meaning they are suitable for transporting chilled and frozen goods.
  • Heavy equipment: If you are taking musical equipment to your venue, or setting up a mini professional kitchen, for example, for a food festival, then it is likely to be bulky, heavy and difficult to lift. Make loading and unloading easier by opting for a truck which has a hydraulic tail-lift. This allows you to lift up ovens or DJ decks by rolling them into the back of the truck and letting the lift do the hard work for you.
  • The right time: Think about whether you need to transport items to your venue the day before or whether you can set up on the morning of your event. This will dictate when you opt to get your vehicle, and how long you hire it for. Ultimately, this will be decided by the time of day or night that you are hosting your event and how much equipment you are setting up before your guests, customers or festival attendees arrive. If you are holding a mid-week event, there may be some special rates available to explore.
