How to rent a van and move house yourself

If you’ve got a big move coming up, you’ve probably already started to think about your options. You could let a storage solution company like Wilson Storage take care of the whole process for you. But if you’re the type of person who likes to get their hands dirty, the idea of boxing up all your belongings, packing them into a rented van and driving confidently off to your new place to unpack might actually sound quite fun.

So, how can you easily get your hands on a suitable van at a price that won’t break the bank? Wilson Storage can help out there. In fact, we have a whole fleet of vans that are for people exactly like you – the adventurous type not scared to tackle a job head-on.

Our Wilson Storage vans are available for rent at a competitive hourly rate, so you don’t have to worry about getting it returned before dusk to avoid paying for a whole extra day – we’ll simply charge you for the hours you had the van. And, because we love our customers, the fuel is absolutely free!

The vans are designed for a seamless removal experience. They have automatic transmissions and include doors on three sides – very handy for those living in or moving to narrow streets or a place with restricted access.

If your removal job is in fact quite a big one, you might not be able to do the whole job yourself, despite your best intentions. For bigger removal jobs we use our removal partners, Master Relocations, who have large removal trucks and specialist removers who have handled a grand piano or two in their time.
