About Clacton On Sea

Seaside results boomed during Victorian times but Clacton-on-Sea's was a relative latecomer. The town's development as a seaside resort didn't start until 1871. Steamships bought the bulk of visitors initially until road and rail connections were improved and became a more attractive choice.

The town's pier was originally used to land passengers from steamers but became a draw in its own right. It remains a distinctive attraction in an era when seaside piers are gradually disappearing from our coastline.

Today, Clacton is home to more than 50,000 people. This population swells significantly with visitors and seasonal workers in the summer season, but it's a large enough town to be well provided for with amenities and facilities such as local van hire. A standard choice of vans should be available at most times:

  • 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).
