Moving home can be very stressful. It’s a long day with lots of heavy lifting so you need to do everything possible to make it easier on yourself. With the right van hire, the day you’re moving home can be much more relaxed.

Are you time limited?
You need to be able to have flexible hire period. You don’t want to have a huge rush all day to get your van loaded and unloaded and then returned to your hire company. Make sure you have a flexible hire period to take some of the pressure off on your moving day.
What size do you need?
There are lots of different types and sizes of van, and if you’ve never driven one before, it can be hard to know what van you need for your moving day. If you choose Meashams, you can chat to our friendly team of van hire experts about your cargo and we can recommend the right van size for you.
How easy is it to load?
Loading and unloading a van can be tricky. You’ll need all the help you can get to safely transport all your possessions. Having a tail lift, for example, can make getting heavy pieces of furniture in and out of the van safely and easily.
Know your cover
Confirm with your rental company what insurance and breakdown cover is included with your van hire. You don’t want to get halfway to your new house and get a flat tyre and have no idea what to do to get it fixed.
Is it cost effective?
You’ve already invested a lot of money in your new house! You want to make sure the company you hire your moving van from offers you excellent value. Shop around a little and see which companies have the greatest deals.
