Top Tips for Hiring a Cargo Van in Southampton

  • Enterprise usually places stricter age restrictions on drivers looking to hire vans. You usually need to be at least 25 years old, and you may need to be at least 30 years old if you're hoping to hire a large Luton van. You can generally hire and drive a van using your usual driving licence. A special licence is only required for vehicles that carry over 3.5 tons, and most vans available for hire carry between 1 and 3 tons.
  • Rush hour in Southampton gets very busy, and it's best to avoid it when driving your van in Southampton. In the morning, congestion is usually worst between 07:00 and 09:00. In the afternoon, rush hour generally starts at 16:30 and congestion eases around 19:00. The A3035 road is particularly bad. If you're driving out of the city in the morning or into it in the evening, you'll usually encounter less congestion.
  • The Renault Master is usually the largest vehicle available from Southampton van hire companies. It can typically carry up to 1.6 tons and with no internal wheel arches, you can easily stack cargo flat in the storage area. There are also multiple load-lashing points where you can secure your items. With 180-degree back doors and side doors, accessing your items is easy. Overall, this is one of the most popular and reliable models, and it's often available from Enterprise's central office.
  • Hiring a van in Southampton is essential for anyone hoping to transport moving boxes, cargo or large items through the city. The city doesn't have too many narrow roads, so you should be able to navigate it with a large vehicle relatively easily. Driving a van yourself is often cheaper than hiring movers or other private drivers, and you'll be able to transport your items at your own pace. Plus, with van hire companies throughout the city, finding the right vehicle is easy.

FAQs About Hiring a Cargo Van in Southampton

  • Where can I find the best Southampton van hire companies?

    Enterprise has a number of different offices that offer Southampton van hire. If you're looking to hire a van from the eastern part of Southampton, choose their Bitterne Manor office on Bitterne Road. Their High Street location in Totton is useful for anyone hoping to find a van to hire in West Southampton. If you're looking for somewhere close to the city centre, their Western Esplanade offices are best. This Southampton van hire location is particularly convenient if you're arriving in Southampton via train, as it's within easy walking distance of Southampton Central Station.

  • Where are the best places to park a van in Southampton?

    When looking for parking spaces in Southampton, bear in mind that a number of places have a two-hour maximum stay. This includes the Civic Centre Forecourt Car Park, which is a handy spot in the city centre with no height restrictions. These places are useful if you only need to park for a short time, as they often offer a 30-minute ticket. At the Civic Centre, it costs £0.60 for 30 minutes, £1.60 for an hour and £3 for two hours. The Southbrook Road North Car Park is a long-stay car park right by Southampton Central Station that costs around £1.00 per hour. Spaces are relatively limited and if it's full, you can use the parking at the station, which costs around £9.30 for a full day.

  • Can I hire a small van in Southampton?

    If you need just a little bit of extra space, a vehicle like the Renault Kangoo is ideal. These vans can generally seat two passengers and leave the rest of the interior for cargo. These vehicles are particularly useful if you're concerned about finding parking spaces. They are shorter than most other vans, so they often meet the height requirements of underground car parks and aren't as long as other vans, which makes on-street parking easier. You can find them at Enterprise's Bitterne Manor office.  

  • How does KAYAK find such low cargo van hire prices?

    KAYAK compares cargo van hire prices from all major car hire companies such as Thrifty, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Payless and more to find you the best deal.

  • How much does a cargo van hire cost in Southampton?

    On average a cargo van hire in Southampton costs $149 per day.

  • Which car hire companies in Southampton hire cargo vans?

    Car hire companies in Southampton that hire cargo vans include Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Free2Move.

  • How much does it cost to hire a van for a week in Southampton?

    On average a van in Southampton costs $1,042 per week ($149 per day) to hire.

  • How much does it cost to hire a van long term for a month in Southampton?

    On average a van in Southampton costs $4,465 per month ($1,042 per week) to hire.

Pros:

car Was better than I expected

Cons:

1) Alamo found one of the types to have a chip out of it so keep our GBP 300 deposit. Absolutely certain it was not us who did that ( we only did 60 miles and the car was left in secure parking over night). ......double and triple check before you hire! Video your car,

The tires were under inflated -warning lights came on, had to turn around and I had to go back to the rental place to fix it! Otherwise everything was great!

2.0 Poor

Apr 2024

KAYAK
Had to rate as poor across the board. When I booked the hire car through Kayak, the confirmation email clearly stated that Third Party Insurance was included. When I arrived to collect the car, I was told this was not the case and effectively there was no Third Party Insurance on my booking, and the excess was £100,000 unless I agreed to pay a further £280 in additional insurances. I hire cars frequently and am well aware of the different levels of insurance to consider - but I was careful to book a car where the Third Party Insurance was included. I couldn’t believe it when the team at Europcar ignored what was on the booking form and maintained that it was not, and that I would be liable for the large amount excess in the case of any incident. I refused to drive the car on that basis and currently am left over £500 out of pocket for this non refundable booking. Won’t use Europcar (or Kayak) again.

The exterior of the car was dirty, with bird droppings on it. Otherwise, the only other issue was that the car kept falsely showing low rear tire pressure.

Pros:

The lady that helped us was very patient and polite. She must meditate and listen to relaxing music in her free time to be able to cope with all the angry customers she gets.

Cons:

Off airport. Compulsary insurance which costs a fortune. From the look of it the cars that were provided had quite some damage already so maintanance/turnover is questionable. Uber was a lot more afordable in our case. We ended up going back to the airport and taking a taxi.
