There are many variables to consider before you choose to rent a commercial van. Different companies have different terms and offerings. Following are some of the things you need to consider to make an informed decision as you go renting a van for commercial purposes.
Do you need insurance?
Will your van be insured and does the company have a comprehensively package? Ensure that your coverage covers both the vehicle and the cargo in the vehicle. Therefore, in case of an accident, both your vehicle and cargo will be covered for. Do not make an agreement with a company that cuts corners when it comes to insurance coverage.
What van size do you need?
You have a purpose for which you are renting the van. The size of the cargo you wish to move will determine the van size. Choose a suitable van that will be sufficient for your day to day operations. Make proper assessment of the goods so that you don’t have to leave some behind or even go with an empty van space.
Compare the prices
It’s a shopping spree when it comes to looking for the appropriate van for commercial purposes. Price is the major determinant of the van you go for. Without compromising on the quality and space, take time and look for a commercial van rental company that offers competitive pricing. Look around for the rental company with the most competitive packages. Get the contacts from their website, call their customer care team and confirm their prices. Again, look into their service quality.
Does the company offer a helper?
It may be necessary to get a helper who would help in loading cargo into the van or a driver to assist on the way especially where long distances are involved. You need to make an informed assessment of the nature of cargo to be loaded/ off-loaded and the distance to be covered. Where you don’t need assistance whatsoever, avoid the charges.
Confirm the company’s support plan
Does the rental company have a comprehensive roadside plan? Sniff around for those companies that offer this service free. Some of the free services offered are mechanical but in case of a flat tire, you may need to spend more on repair.
In conclusion, really think about your commercial needs and if the service provider is able to meet them at your budget.
