If you are looking to move home or office or starting up a delivery business, you will invariably need a van and lorry rental service.

The light commercial vehicle rental business has witnessed a surge in demand in recent months. Most of the growth has come from individuals moving homes due to job losses.

Many first-time movers would have trouble choosing the right service, and understandably so. We will try and make it easy for you.

Before looking for a van and lorry rental, you need to know three things:

1. Your requirement

What’s the volume and weight of your luggage or items you want to ship? Are there any items that need special permits or have a special requirement? Say, you may have some items to be carried under controlled temperature. Making a list upfront will save you a lot of effort later.

2. Credibility of the van and lorry rental service

One of the easiest ways to check the credibility of a service is to look up their service history. Usually, the longer a company has been in existence, the better it is. However, many new-age businesses make up for the lack of years, by using technology that provides complete transparency and a great user experience.

3. Cost

Once you have shortlisted 2-3 services that match your requirement, compare their costs. While few service providers tend to charge a premium over others, it needs to have a valid justification. Do they provide additional services? Do they have an impeccable service record? 

Here, we will help you choose the best van and lorry rental service that meets your requirement and budget.
