About Braintree

The Essex town of Braintree is home to more than 40,000 people. It lies midway between Bishop's Stortford to the west and Colchester to the east and is about 20 miles from both towns.

Braintree's unusual name appears to be linked to its location on the River Brain, where a settlement is thought to have existed for more than 4,000 years, since the Bronze Age. Modern Braintree has a twice-weekly market and a mixed economy, with residential, light industrial and service businesses in the area.

Transport links are reasonably good, although passengers for London must currently change at nearby Witham, from where it's possible to get a direct train to London Liverpool Street. Road links are better, the A120 provides a direct link to Stansted Airport. Local amenities include van rental, offering a fairly typical range of hire vans:

  • 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).
