Patrick Location agencies do not only rent out passenger vehicles but also vans at very attractive prices. Vans are very convenient in some situations, such as when you are transporting a large piece of furniture (sofa, washing machine, etc.) or during relocation.
With the right tool, everything becomes very easy: all you have to do is load the rented van, drive it from point A to point B, unload it, and you’re done. This saves not only time, but also money and energy since you do not have to make extra trips as you would when moving with a small car.
Duration of the rental
You can rent our vans for half a day, a full day, or for a longer period of time. If you want to quickly transport a large piece of furniture like a chest of drawers or a sofa, it is recommended to rent a van for 4 hours.
Choosing the right van
Depending on the task at hand and transport needs, you can easily rent a small van such as the Citröen Berlingo 3.7m3, a larger one such as the Jumper 8m3, or even the very large Renault Master 22m3. Select the vehicle of your for more detailed information on the dimensions and loading volumes.
Once you have chosen the type of van you want, it's very simple: just enter your personal details and the booking is confirmed. When you pick it up, you need to have your ID card and of course your driving licence with you.
No need to worry about a special driving licence. Yours will be just fine. In fact, all our rental vans can be driven with a category B licence, the same as for a passenger car.
You will find all the necessary information on the general conditions page.

Preparation is key when it comes to driving a van for the first time
If you have never driven a van before, you will be surprised by it size. The all-round visibility is limited and the blind spot is much larger than in a car. So take the time to familiarise yourself with the vehicle. The correct adjustment of the exterior mirrors is very important. When manoeuvring, it is useful to have a second person get out of the vehicle and helps you manoeuvre.
Drive particularly carefully and with anticipation so that nothing happens to you or your precious cargo and, above all, pay attention to the height!
