Reasons to hire a van or truck with Europcar

Hiring a van or a small truck can be an ideal solution for those times when your car is just not big enough. Whether you plan to move to a new house or flat or transport bulky items you have just purchased; hiring a van offers a more flexible mode of transport to help you save time and money. Options are available if you need to hire a van either short or long term.

Hire a van when moving house

Moving into a new flat or house is exciting but it can also be a stressful and expensive experience. If you do have family members or friends to give you a hand, hiring a van instead of hiring professional removalists can be three times cheaper and will allow you to move your belongings at your own pace and in one trip. You can hire the van category and size that fits your needs, and for the period of time that is more suitable for you; for a few hours or over several days. You can then organise your removal more easily and get enough time to pack, unpack, then pack again without the additional pressure of the strict schedule imposed by a professional removalist company. So once you have the van, call a few friends, get the boxes ready and let the moving begin! Follow the top tips in our moving guide.

Hire a van to transport heavy or bulky items

Do you need to pick up that second-hand antique wardrobe you’ve always dreamed of? Or do you want to move some of your gym equipment or your piano to your holiday home? Obviously none of those bulky items will fit in a car, so hiring a van to transport those larger goods is the most practical and safest option. By following proper loading and unloading techniques of items in your van, you maximise space and reduce the risk of damaging goods during a move. Check out our tips on how to efficiently pack a van.

Transporting your bulky luggage to and from the airport or all the way from home to your holiday destination can be an unpleasant experience in itself, unless you rent a small van or a 7-seater car to make the process run much more smoothly, allowing you to get into the holiday spirit as soon as possible.
