Hourly van hire & van sharing clubs

Hourly van hire is a really useful service that's aimed at people who just need a van for a few hours and want to start and end their rentals on the same day. Van rental by the hour is ideal for:

  • Picking up big eBay or IKEA purchases - or that new TV
  • Moving house yourself locally
  • Work deliveries and collections
  • Trips to the tip - saving on skip hire

The main company offering this service in the UK is Europcar.
