Hiring a van in Australia - Useful Information

If you’re moving house, heading on an IKEA run or need to pick up your latest Gumtree bargain, hiring a van is an easy and affordable way to get the job done.

Where to hire a van

You can hire a van from a rental car company or from a car-sharing service like Car Next Door.

Hiring a van from a traditional agency requires a bit of organisation: you’ll need to book in advance, go to the depot during opening hours, and fill out some paperwork. A lot of rental car depots close around lunchtime on weekends, so if you need a van on Saturday or Sunday, you’ll need to be quick or pay for an extra day.

Car Next Door is much more convenient. There’s no paperwork: just join for free in five minutes and once we verify your account you can book a van near you instantly for the time you need. You can hire a moving van right or something different in your neighbourhood, and pick up and return at a time that suits you.

How much does it cost to hire a van?

With a rental car agency you’ll pay a daily rate for hiring the van, plus the fuel you use and extra fees to reduce your insurance excess. This could add up to over $150 a day.

Rates for hiring vans through Car Next Door start at $8 an hour or $40 a day, plus distance charges. Get extra peace of mind by reducing your excess for just $1.50 an hour or $18 a day. You can book for as little as one hour, so if you only need a van for a few hours you won’t be stuck paying for a whole day.
