Hiring a van in Canberra - useful information

Moving house or heading on a big IKEA run? You need a van! You can hire a van from a car hire agency or from a car-sharing service like Car Next Door. Car-sharing is the cheapest and most flexible option because you can book a van just for the time you need it. If you only need a van for an hour or two you won’t be stuck paying for a whole day like you would with a hire car company. Plus there’s no paperwork or standing in line: just book a van through the app and follow the instructions to get the keys and get on the road.

How much does it cost to hire a van in Canberra?

It could cost more than $150 a day to hire a van from a rental agency. You need to account for the daily hire rate plus the fuel you use and cover excess reduction fees. With Car Next Door you can borrow vans in Canberra from $8 an hour or $45 a day plus distance charges, and reducing your excess costs just $1.50 an hour or $18 a day.

Do you need a special licence to drive a van in Canberra?

You can drive a van on a normal ACT car licence, as long as it weighs less than 4.5 tonnes and has no more than 12 seats. This includes all standard moving vans, and all cars available for hire on Car Next Door.
