Clarkson Vehicle Hire Testimonials

Incredible ! …… in 38 years we have reached what has to be our farthest flung customer . We were recently thrilled , delighted and excited to sell a Transit 350 Jumbo ‘extra long wheelbase’ to a customer in New Zealand . John Fitzwater owner of GoTourNZ bought the van as well as some Harley Davidson motorcycles from West Coast Harley Davidson here in Glasgow . The consignment fitted perfectly in a shipping container and next stop ….. NZ ! John was a pleasure to deal with and given the logistics there were considerably more communications than normal . An absolute pleasure to deal with this transaction ……


Clarkson van goes global – quite literally !

Hello Barry

Yes….extremely pleased with van….exactly as you said!

The chaps who delivered the van were very pleasant and had it washed before they dropped it off.

I am currently fitting the van out with our equipment but should be ready to go to work next week.

Thanks again



Its all about happy customers ! … makes everything worth it .

This was sent in by a first time customer of Clarksons …. always great to get kind feedback :

First time i have used this company. Very professional company ,had a email back in no time saying they had reserved a van for me on the date i required. All the information they require of you is on there site for links to DVLA. Arrived and spoke to a friendly lady who took my details etc. Then a guy showed me all marks on the van which they had noted on the paperwork.Then of i went only hired it for a full day but i would definitely recommend this hire company. Many thanks Nickos ******

Simple, straight forward, fuss free, great service ……

Hello Barry  

I had , what can only be described as an absolute pleasure in dealing with Laura when hiring a van . Without going into too much detail – after me changing my mind a thousand times she had the patience of a saint as was super friendly and efficient with everything . All round a very positive experience 

You must be paying her a fortune … Because  she is worth it 

Thanks again to Laura 

 Kind Regards

Next Retail Ltd 


Glowing feedback from a UK retail giant ! ………

The BEST Used Van Centre in the UK by far, friendly, fun people who really care about the client and never sell you a vehicle that will not only meet your expectations, it will surpass them. Cannot recommend the entire family and team behind Clarkson of Glasgow strongly enough – you have to experience it, to believe it…… D.Montgomery 


A truly heartening testimonial – makes everything worth it !


Hi Barry

Great thanks, really delighted with the van – especially our 12 year old who’s ecstatic we’ve joined the 21st century with the bluetooth haha!!

Chris thinks he might just keep the racking in the back – be nice to have a tidy van for a change.

Kind Regards,

Being in business is also about making friends ……

dscn0673Id like to ad at this point that Kieran had been shopping about looking at various garages for a new van and could not believe the poor quality and sky high prices that were being ask for vans on the open marketplace. Were so glad that we managed to set the record straight and sell Kieran a great van at a great price …. (actual van below)

Hi Barry,

Delighted with the van. Thanks again, service was fantastic.  Will definitely be recommending yourselves in the future.

I always bring him with me, he always gets something 🙂

Technology is one thing but customer trust is still king !


Thanks for this.  The whole process worked very well, with a very straightforward and efficient pick-up and drop-off process at the airport.

Thanks to your team for their help.

We don’t get up to Scotland very often but would have no hesitation in using your services again.

…and we had quite good weather.

Regards, Victor

Two words we like : ‘ straightforward’ & ‘efficient’ …..
