About Bedford

Bedford, in central England is (for some reason) home to the largest Italian population in the UK! The town and its associated district of Kempton are home to around 80,000 people - of who no fewer than 2 in 7 are of at least partial Italian descent (2001 Census figures). Bedford's Italian population is largely the result of the London Brick Company - then located in the area - recruiting heavily in southern Italy in the 1950s.

That distinction aside, it's central location and good transport connections have made it a popular base for a variety of businesses. As well as great rail links, Bedford benefits from direct rail services to London St Pancras, Nottingham, Leicester, Leeds and Sheffield. Additionally, bus services operate to Northampton, Cambridge, Oxford and Milton-Keynes.

Bedford's lively mix of businesses, retail outlets and residential areas means that van hire is in strong demand in the town - and a number of local van hire branches exist to service this need. Attractions in the town include St Paul's Church and the River Great Ouse, which runs right through the town.

Bedford itself is also home to part of the University of Bedfordshire and consequently also has a thriving student population. The university also contributes to the cultural and leisure activities in the town - the University's theatre is the largest in the area and is used to stage a wide variety of productions.

All this activity adds up to one thing - a strong, steady demand for van hire. Bedford doesn't disappoint, with a range of branches providing comprehensive van rental services and all types of van:

  • Medium vans - e.g. Ford Transit Custom, 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
  • Luton vans & box vans (3.5 tonne / 3.5t).
