Daily and Short Term Van Rental

We live in a society where everything has to be done now! Not in 1, 2 or 3 days time  – but now, right now!

If it involves lifting and shifting, lugging or hauling, Clarksons have a self drive rental van available right now to do the job. Book it…arrive and drive!

A ‘short term’ rental is traditionally anything from four hours to one week approximately. So whether it’s a last minute rental as your own van may be off the road or maybe to drop an urgent delivery to a client or possibly an impulse trip to Ikea – the list is endless – we have a variety of vans for hire and can advise on the best one for your requirements. Trade and public are always welcome at Clarksons – 7 days a week!

Cheap Van Hire

A short term van hire is extremely cost effective and much cheaper than using a delivery firm or a transport company. From as little as £26 you’re up and running in a new Clarkson rental van to get the job done.

Hire Van Delivered to Your Door

To make the job in hand even easier Clarksons can ever deliver the van to your address (home or work) for rentals of three days and over. For bona fide business users we can open a credit account for ongoing rentals.
