Easter is early this year, and will be here in less than two weeks. What are your plans?
The ‘beast from the East’ appears to be in full retreat this week, opening up the prospect of some milder weather over the long weekend.
It may still be too early for a BBQ (or perhaps not!) but Easter is the ideal time to get stuck into big DIY jobs, garden renovations, or major trips to the tip. Perhaps you’ve got an old shed or garage that needs emptying. And what about the loft?
If you need to shift a load of dirty ‘stuff’ from a to b, then you’ll probably already know that your car isn’t the ideal choice of transport. Not only is carrying capacity limited, but you’ll have to do a big clean-up afterwards.
A far better choice might be to consider hiring a van for the long weekend. This could be much cheaper than you’d expect, and the practical advantages of having a rugged and large load space could easily outweigh the extra cost.
For example, you won’t run any risk of getting soil/mud/oil/grime/loft dirt on your car’s upholstery. Nor will there be any risk of damaging the seats or interior trim.
The extra space and weight-carrying ability of a van also means that you’ll probably be able to make fewer trips. One trip in a medium van could easily replace three in a car. That leaves more time for a BBQ and a hard-earned beer when you knock off for the day!
