Rent a van in Bristol with Europcar

Need to carry a canoe to Clifton? Bring a bed to Bishopston? Or maybe shift a shed to Southville? Transporting bulky items is easy with Europcar van hire in Bristol – we have a fleet of vans you can hire for a day, a week or a month, giving you total flexibility to get the job done.

We pride ourselves on providing a world class service, clear honest pricing and no hidden charges. Our fleet of small, medium and large vans can help you tackle anything – however big or small the job.

Our two van hire stations in Bristol are easy to find and convenient, whether you’re just travelling within Bristol or need to go further afield. The Bristol Horfield station is located off the M32, Junction 2, approximately three miles from the centre of Bristol. If something more central suits you better, our Bristol South office is just five minutes from Templemeads Railway station. Either way, you can collect your van and be on your way in no time.

Moving home in Bristol

If you’re hiring a van to move house, you’ll probably want one of our larger models, such as the Iveco Daily. This practical truck has a massive 19 m3 of space plus room for up to three passengers – so you can take your helpers along as well!

Planning a move is a doddle if you follow a few simple steps – here are our hints and tips to take the stress out of the process. Once you’ve chosen the right model for your job and collected your van from one of our convenient van stations, it’s time to pack up all your belongings. We know this can seem like a daunting task so we’ve put together a handy guide to packing a van, to help stow everything safely and securely for the journey.

First time driving a van? Don’t worry, driving a rental van in Bristol is simple as long as you remember a few important points:

  • Be aware of the height of the vehicle and check it will fit under any structures such as low bridges or car park entrances.
  • Check your route in advance and make sure it doesn’t include any roads that are too narrow or unsuitable for large vehicles – you may need to look up an alternative route.
  • You might need more space for turning than you’re used to, so make sure you allow for this when parking and manoeuvring.
  • Carrying a heavy load can affect braking and acceleration so allow extra space for braking.
  • Remember that visibility won’t be the same as driving a car – you may be relying on just your wing mirrors if there isn’t a rear view mirror or if the rear view is obscured by your load.

And that’s it, now you’re all packed up and prepared for the journey – bon voyage!

Small, medium and large van hire

We really do have a van to suit you, whatever it is you need to carry, and wherever you’re travelling to.

Small compact vehicles such as the Vauxhall Combo Crewvan are ideal if you just need to collect a bulky purchase and get it home. If you need something bigger, the Ford Custom, Ford Transit and VW Caddy are just some of the options we have available. And for even larger loads, the Mercedes Benz Sprinter or Iveco Daily are just the job. And if you need to carry a few passengers as well, consider a pick-up – the Toyota Hilux can carry up to five people.

We are proud to be a global leader in car, van and truck rental. To find out more about the Europcar van hire experience, be sure to visit our van hire page!
