Admiral Self Drive Van Hire is family-owned van and minibus rental business in Walsall, near Birmingham in the West Midlands.
Founded in 2002 by twin brothers Maurice and Joe Doyle, Admiral offers a wide range of vans, minibuses and 7.5 tonne removal lorries for hire and also offers a popular European van hire service.
Admiral’s fleet has grown to more than 50 vehicles and ranges from small vans like the Ford Transit Connect, through a full range of 3.5t panel van, luton and dropside models, up to 7.5 tonne box vans and pantechnicon removal lorries — probably the largest vehicles you can drive on a car licence (if you passed your test before 01/01/1997).
If you need to carry people, as well as goods, then Admiral offers a range of 6,7 and 9-seater crew vans, also known as splitter vans for bands (check out Admiral’s listing on our band van hire page), which have a front passenger compartment and a separate rear load compartment, providing good load security and passenger comfort. Admiral also offers 9- and 17-seater minibuses, for when passengers are the load!
Admiral specialises in offering vans and minibuses for European use, which includes full RAC European breakdown cover and all necessary documents (such as the essential VE103B form). The company’s website includes a useful set of tips on driving rental vehicles abroad and taking them on the ferry, as well as general advice on driving vans and minibuses.
