Hire a Van and Grow your Business

Van & Car Self Drive Hire, Low Rates & Deposit, for Newcastle, South Shields, North Shields & Wallsend

It is often said that you should only invest in something which will appreciate in value, and that you would be wise to lease anything that will depreciate. This is particularly true when it comes to vehicles, which begin to lose value the second they are driven out of the dealer’s forecourt. Our vans are frequently hired by people who are starting up or running their small business, and want to limit their outgoings. They prefer the low cost, versatile option of vehicle rental as and when, without having to worry about tax, MOT or insurance. They also know that with our vans, they are sure of a high performance, well maintained vehicle that is unlikely to let them down. A smart, modern and professional looking van can instil customer confidence and help create just the right impression.

Van Hire for Business Start Up

Start up businesses sometimes opt to buy a second hand vehicle as a low priced alternative to buying new. This comes with the risk of things going wrong or underlying problems coming to the surface. The last thing you want when trying to establish your business as reliable, is a breakdown, or having to spend money on necessary repairs. There is also the issue of paying out for ongoing work resulting from wear and tear.

Flexible Vehicle Rental

Renting a van allows you to try out different sizes and styles of vehicle, in order to assist with those all important decisions, if you eventually decide you will need your own van. This is a lot better than purchasing blind and then later discovering a snag you hadn’t thought of. Hiring a van only when you have to is an excellent way to save expense while you are growing your business. We offer short or long term local hire with attractive rates, giving you lots of choice and allowing exceptional flexibility when you need it.
One of the major benefits of hiring your business vehicle is that having a fixed monthly rate, makes preparing your accounts more straight forward. There is no agonising about what to do with the van when it is no longer required or at the end of its life, as it is simply returned to the hire company.
If you need the use of a van for your business, or to carry out removals or deliveries in places like South Shields, North Shields or Wallsend, you might try us here at Economy Hire. Based in Newcastle, we provide self drive vans and cars for use within a 100 mile radius of the city centre, charge only a £50 deposit and our flexible service includes half day hire. Call Economy Hire on 0191 295 5455.

ecAt Economy Hire, we are delighted to announce the launch of a new website for our popular self drive van hire business in North and South Tyneside. We offer Ford transits, High Roof Lutons and Long Wheelbase vans for hire in the Newcastle and Tyne & Wear area. We cater to a wide range of customers with a variety of transport needs such as local furniture removal, home clearance, house moves and deliveries. Our reliable vehicle hire service is a favourite with customers for a number of reasons, including flexibility, low hire rates and low £50 deposit.

A hire van can satisfy a broad range of transport needs, for instance in the case of a daughter or son at college, wishing to transfer their possessions between home and student digs. Perhaps you want to move some cumbersome furniture items or have managed to find a real bargain at a discount store but delivery is not offered. We can provide a self drive van for half a day hire, saving you time and money.

Hire vans are also increasingly used by wise businesses as an alternative to purchasing company vehicles. This can particularly benefit the smaller or start up business which may only need occasional use of a van. Sometimes a small van will suffice and other times a larger vehicle is required, making company vehicle purchase a little tricky. There is also the question of depreciation and other costs such as service and maintenance. With a hire van from Economy Hire, you can have the use of a clean, smart and expertly maintained vehicle whenever you wish, without any of the downsides of vehicle ownership. A clean and attractive looking van gives a positive message about your business.

Our new bespoke website has been designed to our exact specifications by Autus Web Design & Marketing, Salford, Greater Manchester. A Responsive Design website seemed the best option allowing anybody visiting the Economy Hire website to experience optimised viewing for faster results. Websites which do not have Responsive Design appear slow and troublesome on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
