The East Grinstead Area’s Van Hire Specialist

Ever wondered how individuals and companies around the Crawley, East Grinstead, Horsham and Horley areas make use of van rental? Here are a few of the most common reasons for using our flexible, convenient and cost effective van hire service!

Why Hire An Armstrong Selfdrive Van?

Landing a Contract – We’ve found that van owners are fairly similar from Crawley to East Grinstead, Horsham to Horley. They’re loyal to their vehicles, and appreciate the service they’ve put in over the years. But some vans have really taken a beating, and they show it. This can be problematic. In a 2014 Populus Survey, over two thirds of consumers admitted the condition of a tradesman’s vehicle influenced their decision whether to use their services or not. Respondents were found to be significantly less likely to use a tradesman with a beaten up, weathered van – favouring ones with clean and “new” looking vans.

Never mind the strange logic here (surely a well-used van suggests experience and popularity?) If you’re looking to land a big contract around the Horley or Horsham areas, or a smaller one around Crawley or East Grinstead, van rental could be the way forward. Turn up in one of our vehicles and you’ll be sure to make a great impression.

Current Van Out of Action – Did you know that the cost of vehicle downtime to SMEs is £500 per day? If you run a company that relies on a van on a day-to-day basis and it suddenly goes out of action, you can really feel it in your pocket. It’s also surprisingly common for Crawley, East Grinstead, Horley and Horsham clients to require van hire to fill in for an out of action light commercial vehicle (LCV). Over 50% of all LCVs fail to gain an MOT test pass certificate first time round, after all!

Use our extremely affordable van rental service and make sure you don’t miss out on potential revenue. Go about your business as usual with one of our top-of-the range vans, then when yours is back in action, bring it back!

Moving House/Office – Moving to a new home or commercial premises around Horsham, Horley, Crawley or East Grinstead can be a stressful experience, and an expensive one if you choose to call in the movers. Why not save a few pounds and do it yourself with our van rental service? It may take a couple of trips back and forth if you have a lot of stuff, but with one day van hire from just £45, it may just pay off.

Transporting Goods – Another way van hire can come in handy is in the transportation of goods/stock from A to B. If you’ve got a fair bit to move, then going through traditional avenues could cost you a fair bit. Handling the task yourself is a cost effective solution and grants you full peace of mind. You won’t have to worry that the company you’ve hired to do it for you will turn up late, or that stock might go missing.

Choose our van rental specialists, who cover all areas around Crawley, East Grinstead, Horsham and Horley, and rent a quality vehicle that’ll handle the task at hand, whatever it is!
