What to look out for when hiring a van

What to look out for when hiring a van

Hiring a van can be an overwhelming task for someone new to it, and it makes sense, understanding the right vehicle size without seeing it first, understanding the mileage allowance, additional costs, and more. You can quickly get confused, so finding the right signs in accordance to your needs is key to hiring the right van for you, at the right price.

It makes sense that some of these signs are harder to spot if you don’t have the vehicle physically in front of you. A helpful way to find out some of this information, if it isn’t stated online, is to call them directly.

This leads nicely into the first and most crucial sign to spot when hiring a van, good customer service.

Customer service

If you are new to the process of hiring a van, it can be confusing to navigate options that are suitable for you. So it is always a relief to speak to staff who have excellent knowledge, along with the communication, and the patience to easily guide you to the option you need. This is the standard at North London Van & Truck Hire Ltd.

On the other side of the coin, bad customer service can easily be identified with the following behaviours…

  • Not providing or attempting to provide answers relevant to the customer.
  • Not listening to the needs of the customer
  • Belittling or insulting the customer

Bad customer service can be an indication of bad business practices, which is the next sign to spot when it comes to hiring a van.

Bad business practices

When it comes to bad business practices, customer service is the tip of the iceberg. You can expect the following issues if you happen to enquire or use the fleet of a less than reputable hiring service…

  • Vehicles are not maintained regularly to a safe standard.
  • Vehicles do not come as advertised, which can either be a different vehicle altogether, or in a different state than what is specified.
  • Information is inconsistent, hidden costs that are not mentioned at any point before the completion of the hiring process.
  • Having to return the vehicle during the hiring period with no valid reasoning, or being double-booked.
  • Having to pay for maintenance costs that should be covered before you drive, e.g. MOT.

Environmentally conscious

Although some will have differing opinions, we believe that a hiring service that is making progressive steps towards environmentally friendlier decisions indicates thoughtful service, to the world and their customers. 

That is why all of our options are 100% ULEZ compliant, with an all electric option also available.

With North London Van & Truck Hire Ltd, the daily rental cost (24 hours) for hiring a van is between £64.90 & £129.00.  Please note that these prices are subject to change, and are dependent on the size, and fuel type of each van we can provide.

Along with providing discounts for long term contracts, our rates include full breakdown cover and insurance. Our vehicles are highly maintained, and are 100% compliant with ULEZ regulations, meaning no additional costs, whilst being more environmentally friendly.

What can change the cost of hiring a van?

When it comes to hiring from our fleet, being aged between 21-24, and the duration of the hiring period are some key factors that come into play when providing a quote to hiring our vehicles. This may fluctuate in other cases.

However, additional costs may occur if our fleet is returned in just some of the following states…

  • Parts missing without informing us as soon as you discovered it.
  • Broken/unusable without informing us as soon as it became like this.
  • Repainted, or received modification without our knowledge.
  • It has been returned in an unmaintained state, which requires extensive professional deep cleaning/upholstery repair.
  • It is delivered after the agreed time without disclosing any relevant circumstances.

We understand that in some instances, things can go wrong that are beyond your control. All we ask for is transparency and to be notified in any instance of damages that affect the vehicle during and beyond your usage.

How many people can legally sit in a van?
