The city of Plymouth is situated in Devon, on the south coast of England. Located just to the south of the Dartmoor National Park, Plymouth is the largest city in the region and has a long history as an important naval port.


Overlooking one of the largest natural harbours in Europe, Plymouth, in Devon, is steeped in maritime history, with a long history as a vital Royal Navy base and a commercial port. In 1620, Plymouth was the departure point for the Pilgrim Fathers who established the first British colony in America. As well as serving existing ships, Plymouth was also a major shipbuilding centre and many ships have been built in its dockyards - especially naval ships.

The city is home to more than around 250,000 people and also has one of the largest universities in the UK - the University of Plymouth. Despite its relatively remote location, Plymouth has good rail connections to London, Scotland and the Midlands and lies on the A38, the main trunk road through south Devon. The city's port is also the terminus for cross-channel ferry services to both French and Spanish ports. Plymouth also has its own airport - Plymouth Airport.

Unsurprisingly, van rental in Plymouth is in strong demand. Local van hire companies supply a wide selection of hire vans to both private customers and businesses - typically including:

  • Medium / short wheelbase vans - e.g. Ford Transit, Vauxhall Vivaro, Renault Trafic, Volkswagen Transporter
  • Small vans - e.g. Vauxhall Combo, Ford Transit Connect, VW Caddy
  • Large / long wheelbase vans - e.g. Mercedes Sprinter XLWB, Ford Transit LWB, Renault Master, LDV Maxus
  • Luton vans & box vans (3.5 tonne / 3.5t).
