Van Hire Birmingham

All you need to know about hiring a van in Birmingham

Situated in the West Midlands, Birmingham is the second-largest city in the United Kingdom. A key player in the Industrial Revolution, Birmingham has often been referred to as a 'manufacturing' city and has laid many of the foundations for the industrial world with its wide variety of specialised and highly skilled trades.

Considered the Midlands' social, cultural and financial capital, Birmingham has a population of roughly 1.1 million people within its city area and around 3.7 million in the wider metropolitan area. Within four hours drive of 90% of the rest of the UK, Birmingham is a popular destination for many people too. Known for its buzzing nightlife, theatre and festivals, Birmingham is also one of the UK's greenest cities with over 8,000 acres of park and green space as well as 100 miles of canal – more than Venice!

Perhaps one of the things Birmingham is most known for is as a convention destination. The city is home to a large hub of conference centres and arenas, possibly some of the best known in the UK and beyond. As an event and conference hub, millions congregate on an average year to celebrate everything from gardening to caravans.

Birmingham is also a big student city, and with five universities, it is also considered the largest centre of higher education outside of London. Around 80,000 students reside in the city, coming from all over the globe to study at one of the five higher education institutions in the area: Aston, the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City, University College Birmingham and Newman University College. Attracted by the club scene, "Balti Triangle", top-level sports and multiple concert venues, it's not hard to see why many think Birmingham is a wonderful place to live and study.

Economically, Birmingham is widely known as an important manufacturing and engineering centre. There are around 497,000 employed people in the city, which is dominated by the services sector. There are nearly 44,000 skilled tradespeople in Birmingham, so the construction, agriculture, metal, electrical, and textile industries also provide a strong foundation for the city. 


Business van hire in Birmingham

With an estimated 5 million van rentals in the UK every year and 81% of these from corporate customers, it's clear that vans are a vital asset for many businesses. Nationwide Hire support companies in and around Birmingham by supplying self-drive vans as and when required. So, whether a van is needed ad-hoc or as an extra for the fleet, we've got it covered.

Smaller vans such as the Transit or Caddy are an excellent choice for deliveries and tradesmen such as plumbers and electricians and have plenty of space for a sizeable load. Vans of this size start from around £101.98 for a one day hire.

We also have many larger, more specialised available such as SprintersTipper TransitsCherry Pickers and Crew vans. These can be hired by the day or for longer depending on availability, with discounts on some advanced bookings.

If it is a Fridge or Freezer vans you need for a temperature-controlled cargo, our prices start from as little as £127.71 per day. We can also accommodate requests such as standby sockets and dual compartments if required.

Flexible hire options are available on all our vehicles, so whether you need a van for a day, a month or even longer can help. We also offer a 10% discount on the rental to business customers if insured using a current company policy and a FREE drop off and pick-up service where possible. 


Private van hire in Birmingham

Vans are one of the most popular vehicles hired for self-drive, especially when it comes to house moves and clearances. We hire out our vans on a day-by-day basis, for a minimum of 24 hours, and most can be driven on a standard UK licence.

If you are moving to or in Birmingham, then we would recommend the Luton Van. Easily one of the best vehicles for the job, they are not only spacious, but many come with a tail lift, making it easier to load bulkier items. For smaller house moves, a Transit van still provides the space you need to get the job done and is a better option if it's the first time driving a vehicle of this type.

Whether you are looking for self-drive hire for business or personal use, our team is always on hand to answer questions, make suggestions or offer advice if required. When you collect the vehicle, we will take you through any checks, help familiarise yourself with the vehicle, and advise any information you need. We recommend checking height restrictions for when parking and any payload restrictions for the vehicle too; it is a legal requirement to monitor the load's weight, and police can be issue penalties should these limits be exceeded.
