Finding A Good Van Hire Company

By Mark Roberts

When it comes to obtaining a van, either if it is for personal use or for company use it is always recommended that you do your research as this will help you to save money. Even if you've rented a van many times in the past, it's still possible to experience that deer-in-the-headlights feeling as you stand at the counter and talk to the rental agent.

Shop around online first and get a sense of what's available. Then check the rental car company's Web sites directly to see whether you can snag an even cheaper rate there. A good many companies will offer cheap van rentals if you can return the van to a certain destination. They may have need of a van at one of their other depots and will offer you a discount to return the van there. It is always worth checking with the rental company.

Hunt for deals. There may be weekend discounts or special weekly rates. The amount of mileage you plan to do in the van could also improve your chances of a discount. Some car company's will give a discount if you take the van for an extended period of time. If you rent the van for over a week they may discount the cost of mileage per day.

The bottom line when thinking about van hire is what company should you go for. Local has the advantage of being close by, whilst national companies you may have to travel a distance and may get behind schedule by traffic. National companies will however have highly competitive prices and may even have offers. But if you're looking for a personal service a local company may be more suitable. Even small companies sometimes have offers for their customers, so you're still likely to find a good deal.

Be on time. If you return your car late, the rental agency may charge you as much as a full day's rental, sometimes at a rate higher than before. If you are going to be late, call the agency and explain your situation.

In terms of cutting the cost of renting a van it is in your best interests to research assiduously. Take advantage of online sites that provide free quotes and price comparisons. And finally make sure that you keep on the lookout for great deals and discounts.
