24hrs Van Rental from £17.50 @ Arnold Clark

54
Found 15th Jan
I used these at the weekend (the £17.50 option) picking up Friday lunch and returning same time on Saturday as unfortunately none of the other options such as B&Q, Budget were local to me.

It seems a good and cheap option if you are moving house etc, especially for the large vans which can be had for £60.

Even in the small £17.50 vans I managed to fit a washing machine and tall fridge freezer. Insurance to reduce excess was I think £14 extra and full to full fuel.

Yep but you will probably also want to take the Excess Waiver in case God forbid you damage the thing.
Deposit and insurance info please
Why do I need to pay an extra £20 for being 24 years old
We only did around a 30 mile journey and returned it, forgetting to fill up with fuel. Realised when he was inspecting and was about to say I'd go to Tesco next door but before I got chance he was "yep, fuel is full". The needle hadn't moved so we were lucky. Think whoever had it before must have brimmed it.

Yes £750 excess even on the cheapest one. Didn't take it out though. Was quoted £14 extra for insurance to reduce to £0. It gives you options at checkout.

Don't crash it etc.

No but in reality, maybe a quick photo from all four angles to prove any "dings" weren't whilst you had it etc.

Check the hire documents carefully. They will mark on a drawing of the van (or car) any damage e.g. scratches already present. Give the van a thorough going over to ensure that all marks/imperfections/dents are documented on the paperwork, pull them up on anything no matter how minor, if you can see onto the roof as well make sure you check, particularly if it has roof bars fitted.
Shame there’s none near me, I’d have been all over this!

Because as an older driver I wouldn't want to have to pay more to cover the additional risked posed by younger drivers. Seems fair to me.

Check the don't have a mileage charge and also check the damage waiver fees they can be huge! and check the level of cover you actually get most will cost a lot more on top of the headline fee or you can end up paying big time for a scratch. Basically check the small print it can end up costing you a hell of a lot more than it would insuring your own vehicle
Used a few times and never had any problems they seem quite relaxed when returning it, also ive hired dual control corsa when the lad was learning and his driving school let him down for his test
Sadly only two locations south of Birmingham. Good deal though, heat.

I second this, but personally, I video the vehicle all around and make sure I get the face of the person that delivered it.
Make sure you note any marks on it on the paperwork and if it’s raining, make sure you put on the paper work that it was raining and some scratches etc would not have been visible.
There are many people out there (me included) who have had nightmares with returning hire vehicles. Cover your back as much as possible and take the time to check the vehicle over thoroughly - especially vans with could have been used to move large items which can easily cause damage.
Basically, if the marks in the vehicle arnt notes on the paperwork - they don’t exist. If they are noted when you return it, it’s down to you.

i use this but I think there's limitations on vehicle type. E.g car, not worth more than £35k. Should be in the details
Seems very limited in terms of locations. Nothing in Wales.

Try renting from smaller local company a pre-scratched van.

Look into excess vaiwers.

I have rented with hertz to pick up a motorcycle and scratched the van slightly when loading, van had 600 miles on it, thankfully it polished out with t cut.

thanks for the advice everyone
No option for London
Has anyone on here used Ridelink, Rentecarlo, Hiyacar, Drivy or easy car club? They used to have vans one Ridelink and Rentecarlo but not on the other 3..

Great idea being able to hire cars in your local area for very competitive prices. Good choice of cars and some great owners too..

As a 24 year old HGV Class 1 driver. I feel I'd be able to handle a van far better than your old ass.
They charge more because they can get away with it, no other logical comprehendable reason

I believe you are an exception. Assuming it's true your qualification would be good evidence of your driving prowess but it is a single example as does not answer the question of why the young are charged more. To provide some more balance I used to on occasion drive like a complete knob when I was 24. It's because of those like my younger self that all young people get charged more. Unfair? Probably but the cost is simply based on statistics.

Don't think this covers vans (or commercial use).

Can we use this for lease cars?
This sounds like a great idea for moving. Does a standard Full License cover you to drive vans or do you need some kind of special license?
Op, thanks so much for this, my car had to go into a garage today and needs more work than I thought, so had to hire a car for a few days but this worked out cheaper. Would have never had known about this unless you had posted, despite being a regular Arnold Clark customer. Thanks again
