Some useful information when hiring a van in Sydney

Even if you already own a car, sometimes you need something a little bigger to move house or transport big items. Hiring a van for a few hours or a couple of days is the cheapest and easiest way to get the job done.

Unlike renting from hire car companies, borrowing a van through a car-sharing service like Car Next Door is really flexible. If you only need a van for a few hours, you’ll only pay for the time you actually need. Plus you and pick up and return the van at a time that suits you – no more hiking to the rental depot during business hours!

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

Hiring a van from a rental company can cost well over $150 a day by the time you include fuel and extra fees to reduce your insurance excess. Rates for borrowing a van from Car Next Door start at $10 an hour and $40 a day, plus distance charges, and you can reduce your excess for just $1.50 an hour or $18 a day.

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

You can drive a van on a normal New South Wales or overseas 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.
