Van Hire Sheffield

All you need to know about hiring a van in Sheffield

Situated in South Yorkshire, Sheffield is the fourth largest city in the United Kingdom and the only city to sit within a National Park. With a population of 735,000, a 0.68% increase from 2019, Sheffield is an international city boasting two world-class research universities catering for over 60,000 students as well as two football clubs (one which is the oldest in the world), the world-famous Crucible Theatre and an incomparable reputation for steel and manufacturing.


With an economy worth over £11.3bn, Sheffield is a city of great opportunity and a fantastic place to live, work and invest. Attracting (and retaining) new graduates, entrepreneurs, innovators and investors every year, Sheffield has become a thriving location for the digital, creative and tech industries whilst also inspiring an abundance of successful, home-grown start-ups which continue to prosper and grow.


In recent years, Sheffield has seen some major investment from national and international businesses. Supercar manufacturer McLaren’s first purpose-built facility, opened in 2018, borders Sheffield and Rotherham and created 200 jobs and an estimated £100m GVA benefit to the local economy by 2028. Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company, is also set to move forward with a multi-million-pound investment which will mean new jobs and new supply chain opportunities.


With a city as thriving as this, it’s not surprising that business is booming in Sheffield. And with this many businesses, small and large, there is always a need for vans. Van usage has increased dramatically over the last 25 years. And with Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) playing an integral part in many businesses, there must be an alternative on hand should it be required.


If you are looking to hire a van local to you, in Sheffield or the surrounding areas, Nationwide Hire can help. We supply all kinds of vans depending on requirements; from Luton vans for moving home, transits for deliveries to freezer vans for transporting frozen goods. And with flexible hire options available, if you need the vehicle for just one day or much longer, we can help. 


Business van hire in Sheffield

With 81% of national van hire coming from corporate customers, we know that businesses in Sheffield rely on services such as ours to do their job. Whether you need a van for a week or a month, we can organise everything and even offer a free drop off and pick-up service covering all our locations in and around Sheffield. We also offer a 10% discount on the rental if you decide to insure the vehicle through your company policy.


The type of business you are in will influence which van best suits your needs and the team at Nationwide Hire are on hand to answer any questions you may have. If it’s a smaller van for carrying tools or equipment you require, then a TransitCaddy or similar would be perfect. Vans like these start at around £101.98 for hire for a day, and you’ll have plenty of space for a sizeable cargo. 


More specialised jobs require more specialised vehicles. We also supply SprinterTipper TransitCherry Picker or Crew vans. Prices for vans like this vary, but we offer a discount on some models if you make an advanced booking. We also hire Fridge and Freezer vans if you are carrying a cargo that requires temperature-controlled movement. Prices start from as little as £127.71 per day, and we can cater to specific requests such as standby sockets and dual compartments.


Private van hire in Sheffield

One of the most common reasons to hire a vehicle is to transport furniture or large personal items. If you are in Sheffield and do need to hire a van for this purpose, get in touch. Our vans are available for 24 hours or more depending on your requirements, and most only require a standard UK driving licence. 


If you are moving house, we recommend the Luton Van. They are spacious and also come with a tail lift which makes loading bulkier items a lot easier. For smaller house moves a Transit van may be as good – remember to check the length of any large items though, to ensure everything fits safely and securely. 



We're here when you need us

Whoever you are and whatever van you need, we can offer all the help and guidance you need when you come to hire a vehicle. Our team are on hand to answer your questions and make suggestions. On the day, we recommend you always familiarise yourself with the vehicle before driving and suggest you scope out the route and parking in case of height restrictions. If you intend to carry a lot of weight, ensure you have checked any payload restrictions as it is a legal requirement and you can face penalties should you be caught with an overloaded van.


If you need any information about hiring a van in Sheffield, then please do get in touch. Our friendly sales team is available seven days a week on freephone 0800 5244 780 or, talk to us online via our home page chat portal.
