As a business owner, moving goods and equipment from one location to another can be an essential part of your day-to-day operations. However, it could be the case that your regular van breaks down, or you need to expand your capabilities temporarily to complete a project. Whatever the reason, a commercial van rental is the perfect solution. When looking for a van rental for your North East business, you want a local company that are friendly and reliable. Read on for more information on Durham rentals.

Why rent a van for commercial purposes?

You might be thinking, why shouldn’t I just buy a van outright? Vehicles, especially those used for transporting heavy and awkward objects, lose a lot of their value over time. This means that a business van usually isn’t a good investment for the business. In contrast, renting requires you only pay for the van as long as you are using it.

Alongside the cash flow efficiency that can be obtained through van rental, there can be the following other benefits of renting a commercial van:

  • Options – business owners can gain access to a wide range of van types and brands. Each of these will come with different characteristics which make them better suited to certain tasks than others.
  • Flexibility – you have the freedom to choose the rental period that’s right for you. It also allows you to get a van at short notice in the event of an emergency.
  • Expansion – renting a van can be a way to facilitate a move to a new facility or allow the business to offer new services, such as deliveries or home visits.
  • Maintain service levels – for most businesses there are periods where they are busier than normal. Hiring a van can help the business maintain the regular standard of service to customers. This is particularly helpful for businesses with highly seasonal products and services.

Commercial van rental agreements

Renting a van for your business is different than renting a van for personal use. Where you would normally only need a van for a short period of time when consumer renting, vehicle hire for businesses is typically offered on a long-term basis. As a result, you are likely to see commercial van rental offers with a minimum term.

As mentioned above, commercial van renting can also be a cost effective option. This is because many rental companies will offer deals to businesses that rent in bulk for long periods of time. You also have the option of claiming some of the cost of the rental through tax relief. Go here for more information on the process of ‘hiring a van for business purposes’.
