Surrounded by the Scottish Border’s region, Cumbria, County Durham, Tyne and Wear and the North Sea, the County of Northumberland in the North East of England, is comprised of six regions or districts although there are plans to amalgamate the districts into two unitary authorities. Proposed are South East Northumberland comprising the urban districts of Blyth Valley and Wansbeck and Rural Northumberland consisting of Berwick upon Tweed, Tynedale Castle Morpeth and Alnwick. The county has excellent road links joining Edinburgh with London on the A1 and west through Cumbria on the A66 from Scotch Corner.
Moving house or simply some bulky furniture or equipment requires a van that can handle the job. There are different sizes of vans available for hire for different purposes. The most common type is the Transit Van hired for short durations. This type of van typically has a short wheel base with double doors and sometimes a side door.
These are adequate for most moving operations. Luton Van Hire is also available – these are larger vans that are popular and offer more space in a separate containment hold behind and above the drivers cab. Smaller Escort type vans may also be available for carrying smaller pieces of equipment.
Rates will depend on the type of van and length of hire and vans generally have a mileage limit over which additional charges will be made. The most common rental period is short term, from a day up to a week. Long term hire is popular with businesses that need an extra operational vehicle for a period of months.
Contract hire may be an option, typically for one to three years with an optional maintenance contract. At the end of the hire period you can simply give the van back or continue the contract with a new one. Leasing a van gives you more flexibility, often with no mileage limit and a contract up to five years. Whatever your van requirements our Northumberland Van Hire services will provide you with the transportation you need.
