First class service

Rated 5 out of 5

I hired a large van for 6 days and it was faultless. I received first class service from a very friendly and professional company who made the whole process easy and couldn’t do enough to help. Value for money was also important to me and they had that covered. I’m a very happy customer and I’ll be back if I ever need a van.

1st class service on mini bus hire

I am so impressed with the first class service I received from Clarkson van hire company I wanted to share this with other customers considering hiring from them. I can honestly say from the initial enquiry call to the collection of the mini bus I have received excellent customer service which has at all times been professional and friendly. I hired a minibus for a weekend away at a very competitive price and received an excellent conditioned, very clean and reliable mini bus. Thanks again to a great team for great service and to allow myself and 15 passengers to have a fab weekend away. I will not hesitate to recommend to family and friends this local company for van/minibus hire.


Cracking Service

My son in law was in need of a vehicle fitted with a tow bar, and having been let down by local hire companies (Greenock and Paisley) he chanced upon Clarkson, and decided to give them a go. I was the designated driver, and dealt with Elizabeth who was absolutely first class throughout. The vehicle hire process on site was simple, speedy, and efficient, and the vehicle did exactly what it needed to do (drawing a boat trailer – minus boat). The vehicle return was again just as easy as the hire process, again done through Elizabeth (who clearly never goes home!). I will certainly use the company again, and pass the word around. Well done to the Clarkson Team, even down to rolls and sausage for the staff!!
