Some companies deal primarily with car rentals and only have small vans available for hire. Other companies also work with commercial customers and have a wide range of vehicles in stock. If you are moving house, a Luton van is a good option. The tail lift on this van makes loading and unloading items easier. If you are transporting goods, you can choose the size that is right for the job. Large panel vans, starting at four metres long, can carry large-capacity loads up to three and a half tonne. Smaller panel vans have a side-loading door and twin rear doors like the larger models, but accommodate smaller loads. Costs Rates for van rentals are sometimes posted on the company’s web site. Be aware that some rates include insurance and breakdown cover, but some do not.

Some companies will offer discounts for longer periods, provide contract hire service, and even offer commercial customers the option of creating an account. In addition to cost, a customer should inquire whether the service offers breakdown cover and roadside assistance. Is the company insured, and does the driver need his own insurance?
