Van rental: do’s and dont’s

Renting a moving van is ideal when you are busy with your relocation. Especially if you do not want to hire an entire moving team with a large truck. You may simply rent a van for one day and move all your belongings from A to B. But there are some things to consider when renting a van. Take a look at our do’s and dont’s.

  1. Do: Book way in advance
    As soon as you know your moving date, rent a van immediately! A early bird discount might be too optimistic. But paying extra when you book last-minute is a realistic scenario. Take the necessary precautions and book in time.
  2. Do:Ask your friends
    Someone you know might have a van you can rent. Or simply borrow it in exchange for helping out with something else.
  3. Do: Drop the van at a different location
    Are you moving far away from your old home? You might want to drop the van at a new place close to your new home. This will save you driving back and forth. And it will save you time and money! Make sure to check if the company accommodates this before you book.
  4. Don’t: drive without any experience
    Have you not driven a van before? Practice beforehand, or get someone else to drive – since you have quite some valuable items in the moving van.
  5. Don’t: assume there is a parking space
    Is it allowed to park in the street of your new home? It might be wise to check this before moving. It will prevent you from any surprises when you drive your moving van around in a busy area. Quite handy!
