Clarkson Vehicle Hire Testimonials


just a belated thank you for your service in July when I hired  a Movano for one week for my house move to Wales from Scotland. Having been quoted £3050 for a removal company to do the removal so my wife and I as [ Still Game Pensioners ] decided to do it ourselves.  Two return trips moved our possessions from our four bedroomed house  to Wales covering approx. 1300 miles.

 Total cost including fuel [ 29 mpg. ] and van hire was £670 a saving to us of £2380

The Vauxhall Movano was a delight to use and despite it’s huge load capacity drove like a private car, maintaining motorway speeds with ease. 

Clarkson, the company and staff have to be congratulated on the ease of booking, friendly and efficient service and I would be happy to recommend them to any potential customer.

Many thanks for helping us turn a time of trauma into an enjoyable adventure,

George and Nora K.


We absolutely love our customers ! (& they love us !)

We were happy to assist with the final stages of what has been a nightmare house move …… this customer in all honesty had the house move from hell . What could go wrong, did go wrong……..thankfully with that all behind him our self drive hire van was drafted in to finish off the very final stages . He’s smiling because 1) the nightmare is over and 2) he’s delighted with our service . Thank you Mr R for your hugely valued business.

Another day, another house move with the help of a Clarksons hire van …

Heres another happy face ! …….long term working relationships are what we are all about at Clarksons. Whether it be a 4 hour van hire or buying a fleet of vans we want to ensure you come back . Here is John Coats of Liberton Décor (Edinburgh) buying another Transit medium wheelbase van to add to his growing fleet and once again we were delighted to step in .

We love meeting people and love what we do …. pop in for a coffee and a chat anytime to discuss your needs  .

Kind regards



Painter to the rich and famous ! …

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 🙂
