Specialist Van Hire Birmingham

Here are the answers to most of the questions we get asked. If you want to know more then please get in touch, we are happy to help.

Not sure what sort of van you need?

Please call us – we will advise you. No booking is too much trouble

What about fuel?

All our vans are diesel. We supply the van with ¼ tank of fuel and we ask that it is returned with ¼ tank.

What documents do I need to hire?

Please bring your drivers licence and either your NI number or licence check code from the DVLA. Minimum driver age is 21 ( 25 for minibuses ) and you must have 2 years driving experience. Maximum age is 75.

Please bring photo ID (eg passport) if your licence if the old paper type. Non-EU licence holders are also asked to bring proof of address in the UK.

Driver requirements

Drivers must be aged over 21 or 25 for minibuses (a small additional insurance charge is payable if the driver is under 25) and under 75 years and have held a full driving licence for at least one year.

I have endorsements on my licence – is that a problem?

No , unless you have one or more of the following still showing as valid on your licence : UT50,CD40,CD50,CD60,CD70,CD71,DD40,DD60,DD80,DR10,DR20,DR30,DR40,DR50,DR60,DR70,DR80 or DR90

What happens if I have a puncture or a breakdown?

Don’t worry, all of our vehicles are fully covered by the RAC, including onward travel to your destination. You will find the membership car in the bottom left corner of the windscreen, just call 0333 202 3000 and quote the vehicle registration.

How do I pay, and what about a deposit?

You don’t need to pay a deposit, just pay for the cost of hire. We accept all credit & debit cards, paypal and bank transfer.

Can I take the vehicle out of the UK?

Not a problem, but you must tell us in advance. There will be an additional charge for continental travel.

Can I return vehicles outside of opening hours?

Yes you can return at any time of day or night – we will explain the procedure at time of vehicle collection.

What happens if I have an accident, or damage the van?

Please call or email us with details of the accident including all third-party details. There is an insurance excess of £500 ~(£750 for 7.5t vehicles) although you can pay a small additional premium at the time of hire to reduce the excess
