With 95 van rental stations across Australia there’s bound to be one nearby, plus our no-nonsense affordable deals make van hire an easy and convenient option. Flexible short and long term hire means you can be done in a day with our hourly and daily hire, or you can take a bit longer to move your goods with an overnight, weekly or month+ deal. The choice is yours.

Plus our extensive range of vans, trucks and utes means you can choose the right vehicle for the job, at the right price for you.

So whether you’re just moving something around the corner, or you need to travel all the way from Perth to Brisbane, our van hire is great value and convenient, helping you get the job done with the least amount of hassle.

Browse our large selection of vans

Are you transporting bulky items? Moving furniture into storage? Or maybe even moving house? However big or small the job, we’ve got a vehicle to suit you in our fleet of vans and trucks.

The Volkswagen Caddy Maxi is ideal for smaller jobs, with its 3.7m3 capacity, and is compact enough for confident city driving, while the Volkswagen Transporter is slightly larger with 5.8m3 of space. The Iveco Daily boasts 12m3 of space, meaning if you’ve got bigger items to shift this could be the van for you. Meanwhile, if you’re moving house the Fuso Fighter is just the job – with a huge 43m3 capacity it should fit your belongings with ease!

And if a ute is more your thing, choose one of the Holden Colorado models such as the Crew Cab Auto, the Dual Cab, or the Auto with canopy.

Whatever the job, whatever the size of the load, and however far you need to travel we’ve got you covered.

Van driving tips in Australia

Driving a van or truck in Australia should be relatively simple once you’ve got used to the larger size of the vehicle. Take a few minutes when you first get in to familiarise yourself with the layout and controls so you’re prepared for the journey. Here are a few tips:

  • If you’re new to driving in Australia, remember that you must drive on the left.
  • Be aware of speed limits, particularly in towns and cities where residential areas and roads close to schools often have 50km per hour or 25-40km per hour limits. Signage should tell you what the limits are and when they apply.
  • It’s a good idea to plan your route in advance and make sure it doesn’t include any roads that are unsuitable for large vehicles.
  • Be aware of the height of the vehicle and check it will fit under any structures such as low bridges or car park entrances.
  • A large truck may need a bit more space for turning than you’re used to so be sure to allow for this when parking and manoeuvring.
  • Slow down, particularly in windy conditions.
  • Carrying a heavy load can affect braking and acceleration so make sure you allow for this.

And now, your cargo is all loaded and you’re prepared for the trip, so it’s time to be on your way and hit the open road!
