VanRental.co.uk is five years old today - and remains the UK's only leading van hire comparison website, covering more than 1,000 branches in over 400 locations.
The UK's leading van hire price comparison website has just celebrated its fifth birthday.
Van Rental.co.uk was launched under the MyLocalVanHire.co.uk brand in May 2007 and has grown and evolved ever since, transforming itself from a static directory to an interactive price comparison website with links to most major UK van hire brands.
Supporting independent hire companies
Unlike many websites, VanRental.co.uk doesn't just focus on big brand national companies. The website has always provided equal exposure for local independent hire companies, as VanRental.co.uk founder Roland Head explains:
"We've always believed in the importance of providing local information. Our unique search system allows visitors to enter a postcode or location name and see the nearest van hire branches on a map. All companies are given equal priority - from local independents right up to global hire companies."
"Right from the start, our main goal was to help people find the information they needed about van hire, as many drivers are not familiar with driving or hiring vans and can find it intimidating", says Roland Head.
"The results we've had since then prove that people definitely do need this information. Our Van Size Guide is the most popular single page on the website after our home page and gets around 70,000 visitors per year."
VanRental.co.uk also provides information driving and loading vans safely, the latest diesel prices and taking hire vans abroad.
Over the last few years, VanRental.co.uk has expanded its offering to include self-drive minibus hire. It now offers full price comparison for minibus hire, with prices and location searches available for SUVs and minibus from 7-17 seats.
VanRental.co.uk is the UK's leading dedicated van hire price comparison site. Featuring more than 1,000 van rental branches in over 400 UK locations, visitors can compare quotes for van hire and minibus hire and see the branch locations on an interactive map.
VanRental.co.uk also provides a van and minibus hire location search service and a wide range of essential information guides on all aspects of hiring, driving and loading vans.
VanRental.co.uk was originally launched as MyLocalVanHire.co.uk in May 2007 and rebranded in July 2011.
