Van Hire for Moving House

Moving house, flitting, relocation…call it what you will, it has to be one of the most of stressful times in our lives.

Whether you are a tenant or a home owner the pressure can be immense – where keys change hands, lawyers are involved and timing is everything. The last thing you need is ‘van’ hassle. Over the years we’ve honestly had countless people coming in to us in a blind panic as ‘their mate with a van’ has let them down. Given the cost of buying or renting a house do yourself a favour and spend £50 on a self drive van hire here at Clarksons in Baillieston and take all the panic and anxiety out of our your big day. Plan ahead and make moving house easier.

Van Sizes for Moving House

Standard short wheel base Transit -  the perfect van for moving house.

Standard short wheel base Transit – the perfect van for moving house.

A small group one Ford Connect size van in all honestly is too small van for moving house regardless how small your house is. The smallest feasible size is the standard short wheelbase Transit van which is easy to drive and manoeuvre yet roomy enough in the rear for smaller type loads. The most popular size by far is the Transit Luton van. Its like a Transit van with a separate large high capacity box on the back ideal for a two bedroom house. These can also come with a button operated hydraulic rear tail lift to lift heavy loads into the van making life so much easier!

If your a real hoarder or are moving from a big house or have a lot of furniture and possessions to move, we rent 7.5 ton box vans. In essence, these are about double the size of the Luton van and once again the rear tail lifts are available.
We also rent out small porter barrows or sack barrows ideal for moving washing machines and the like.

Going the Extra Mile when Moving House

A few months ago we had a local lady from Garrrowhill who’s house move was delayed by 24 hours (we found out after our van was loaded!) and to help her out we parked our van loaded with her worldly possessions securely in our workshops overnight. We will always always help customers where and when we can.

A rental can be literally be from four hours for four years. You can hire a van for moving house from Clarksons for as short or as long as you need it – no hassle, no pressure, no grief. So big house, small house, flat or folly – let us make your life easy!

As a word of warning; Friday and Saturdays are generally fully booked with people moving house so please do allow ample time to make that reservation.
