3 benefits of renting a van for DIY home improvement projects

DIY home improvement projects are a great way to upgrade the look and functionality of your home whilst saving a bit of extra money. That said, depending on the size of the project you’re embarking on, it can require the use and transportation of heavy tools, bulky materials and maybe even a few round trips to IKEA that a normal-sized vehicle might not be able to facilitate. That’s where we come in at Intack Self Drive!

We always recommend hiring a van when it comes to home improvement, especially if your task is particularly large or if you’re taking care of a few jobs at a time. Van hire has numerous benefits and can help cut the workload and time in half. As we're sure any experienced DIYer knows, half the battle is getting everything you need. Here at Intack, our fleet has vans of all sizes available for both daily hire and Flexi hire, so you’ll find exactly what you need to gather and transport your supplies so you can get your projects over the finishing line. So, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of van hire when it comes to DIY projects.

Hiring a van is cost-effective

Van hire can be incredibly cost-effective for DIY projects. Just because you’ve got the skills to undertake the job yourself doesn’t necessarily mean you have access to everything you need to get it done. If you need to hire specialist equipment or make a few trips to gather your materials, often, a car boot won’t suffice space-wise. But how does this work out to better cost-effectiveness? Well, it’s because, at Intack, we offer our vans on Flexi and Daily hire plans, meaning you can either borrow it for the day or keep it as long as it takes to get the job done, all at a great price! This means you won’t be wasting excess fuel on making multiple trips in your smaller vehicle - helping you to save time and money.

Van hire is convenient and flexible

Renting a van can provide you with greater flexibility when it comes to transportation and scheduling. With our van hire services, you can rent a van for any duration you need, whether it's for a few hours or a few days. This means you have the freedom to pick up and drop off the van at a time that suits your schedule, making it easier to fit your DIY projects into the time you have available rather than using unnecessary time making extra trips, or waiting on a man with a van!

A van is the safer option for transporting materials and tools

Renting a van is a safer and more efficient option when it comes to transporting tools, equipment, and materials. Our selection of vans allows you to choose the appropriate amount of storage space, helping to prevent the risk of damage or loss during transit and ensuring that your valuable tools and equipment remain safe and secure.

With Intack vans, there is plenty of space to transport large or bulky items without obstructing any windows or taking up too much space. This makes it easier to stay organised, load up and have greater peace of mind while on the road. Vans also provide better visibility, which helps to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries!

These are just a few reasons to consider hiring a van for your DIY home improvement projects. This smart and efficient choice can help save you time, money, and hassle - and who doesn't want that? With Intack Self Drive, you can choose from various vans to find the perfect size for your needs - whether to transport heavy tools or bulky materials or make a few trips to the DIY shop.

With over 50 years of van, car and minibus hire experience here at Intack Self Drive, our impressive fleet spans over 450 cars, vans, and minibuses.
