Hiring a van in Melbourne - useful information

If you’re moving house or got a lot of stuff to shift, hiring a van makes it easy and affordable to do the job yourself. There are a few options for hiring a van in Melbourne, but the cheapest and most convenient way is to use a car-sharing service like Car Next Door.

Car Next Door lets you rent a van for as little as one hour or up to several days. There’s no paperwork: just sign up for free and book a van near you for the time you need it.

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

Renting a van from a traditional hire car company can get very expensive very quickly. You need to pay for a whole day, even if you only need the van for a few hours. By the time you include petrol and cover excess reduction, you could be looking at well over $150 a day.

Rates for borrowing a van from Car Next Door start at $10 an hour and $40 a day, plus distance charges. You can reduce your excess to $500 for just $.150 an hour or $18 a day.

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

You can drive a van on a normal Victorian car licence, provided it weighs less than 4.5 tonnes and has a maximum of 12 seats. This includes all standard moving vans, and all cars available for hire on Car Next Door.
