Hiring a Van Checklist

Checklist provided by


Check you or someone you know is over 21 to be eligible to drive.
Work out what size van you need eg small or large van, Luton or larger.
Decide how long you need the van for and double it! Eg make sure you leave enough time for several trips.
  Check if you can hire by the hour or if you are charged a full day rate.
  Find out the opening and closing times to return the van so you don’t end up having to pay an extra day.
  Check what all the costs are including the deposit you have to pay. 
  Double check the insurance eg are you insured on your own insurance or do you need additional cover – if so at what cost? 
Remember to take your insurance, driving licence and a recent utility bill with your current address on it which matches other proof of identity.
Make sure you return the van with a full tank of fuel (unless you have another deal).
