how to choose
the right lorry hire
If you’re looking for movers, there’s no point of a single-seater convertible lorry hire. So, make sure your lorry hire has enough seats available.
If you’re booking your lorry hire online, it should show exactly how many seats the lorry has. Smaller lorry tend to have only a single seat in the front. Whereas larger models will have two, three, for example. If you have passengers in the front, it’s worth booking a car with at least two doors, so everyone can get in and out easily.
Consider how much carry space you’re going to need, bearing in mind that all goods will have to fit in the trunk as roof bars and boxes are rarely, if ever, an option when hiring a lorry. The only exception to this is if you’re going skiing – you can get a rental lorry fitted with a ski rack.
Leaving luggage on view on the back seats isn’t a good idea either, as it can attract thieves and may compromise your travel insurance.
Although the idea of hitting the open road in a V1 gas-guzzler is undoubtedly tempting, you might not want to blow half your holiday budget on fuel. So, working on the assumption that smaller cars are generally more fuel efficient, map out how far you’ll be travelling, then calculate roughly how much fuel this will use in your preferred type of lorry.
Specific models can’t be guaranteed at the rental counter, so think the class of lorry instead, such as Medium, Large and Movers etc. Also keep an eye out for the rental car company’s fuel policy, a ‘full-to-full’ fuel policy is the most common, and often the best choice, especially for road-trippers.
If you’re travelling with children, check the child seat policy of the country you’re travelling to, as it may be different to what you’re used to. If you need child seats, it’s best to reserve them at the same time you book your hire car, as they won’t come as standard. The same goes for GPS/satnav systems. You’ll pay for these when you arrive to pick up your car, and rental companies can’t usually guarantee them. These extras are charged at a daily rate, so you can save money by taking your own. And, if you’re travelling anywhere hot, make sure the car has air conditioning, or your road trip might quickly become too hot to handle.
Upgrading to the bigger or faster model can be very tempting, especially if it looks like it won’t add much to the overall cost. But that little extra each day can quickly add up over the course of one, two or three weeks’ worth of lorry hire. And then there are the added fuel costs, bigger security deposit and higher excesses that come with bigger lorries. Once you’ve chosen a model that comfortably ticks all your boxes, you can happily resist hard sell at the rental counter, and stick to your budget.
Then there’s just one final thing to bear in mind – not all road trips are created equal, so you’ll have to match your lorry to the type of trip you’re taking.
