If you’re moving house, buying some new furniture, need some extra space for business deliveries or a lengthy trip with extra luggage, you might want to look at van hire as an option.
There’s a misconception that van or bakkie hire can be much more expensive than getting a professional moving or delivery company to take the task off your hands, but with Woodford Car Hire, that isn’t the case.
Woodford Car Hire has put together a few scenarios where renting makes a little more sense:
New place or new start
Moving into a new place or having a big clean-up? No problem. If you’re manage to get packed and have everything ready for a move to the new space (or dump!), then it might be easier to do-it-yourself and hire a van or bakkie. Getting a friend or two to help out will save on moving company vehicle and labour costs, but also give you the freedom to move at any hour, and not have to watch the clock because of hourly company charges.
Delivery of furniture or large appliances from store to home can often inflate the cost of the goods. More importantly, it means waiting for your purchases to arrive at the discretion of the delivery company involved. If you have the some tarpaulin or soft blankets, then hiring a van or bakkie could be cheaper and more convenient.
An extra set of wheels
Sometimes a business needs an extra pair of hands. Other times, a business needs an extra set of wheels. Renting a van when things get crazy during the busy season will help collections and deliveries go a lot quicker than waiting for larger vans or trucks to get full before sending them off, or worse, not having any vehicle on hand. If you’re gearing for a bumper period, then you might want to look at getting a monthly rental rate from Woodford Car Hire for the van or bakkie of your choice.
Woodford Car Hire offers vans, bakkies or even minibuses from as little as R300 a day, and can be rented with extra kilometres included for those long hauls or moves. Van hire or bakkie hire can be the perfect solution for getting things done with minimal fuss – they’re manageable to drive, durable and cost-effective with the right rental company.
The key to hiring a van or bakkie when you need it most should be flexibility and convenience – factors Woodford Car Hire has always offered.
