About Skelmersdale

Skelmersdale, or Skem, as it's sometimes known, is a historic town whose roots can be traced back nearly 1,000 years, to the Domesday Book of 1086.

As with many such towns, Skelmersdale's growth accelerated during the industrial revolution. Workers flocked from the countryside to towns to find work. In the case of Skelmersdale, the main local industries were coal mining and brickworks, which remained an important part of the local economy until the late 1960s.

Despite its historic status, Skelmersdale was designated as a new town in 1961. A large number of Liverpudlians moved from the nearby city to new housing in Skelmersdale, giving the town an enduring connection with the famous coastal city.

Today, Skelmersdale is home to more than 38,000 and is a major regional logistics centre, thanks to its central location and proximity to the M6 and M62. Unsurprisingly, van rental is readily available in the town. Expect a typical range of vans to be available for hire 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).
