3 reasons to hire a van when moving to university

Going to university is an exciting and new experience that opens up many possibilities. For young people, it's a chance to gain independence from their parents and start a new chapter in their lives. However, it can also be stressful when you consider all the moving parts of settling your child into their new living space. One way to make things easier is renting a van to move their belongings instead of trying to cram everything into a car boot. This can take the pressure off and make the transition smoother and less stressful.

At Intack Self Drive, our goal is to make life as easy as possible for our customers from start to finish. The more compact vans in our range are great for moving small loads, while the generous load space in our Luton vans can easily tackle even the biggest moving projects. So when the time comes, and you’re faced with the task of moving your child to university, we’ve got you covered with our fleet of vans for hire!

So, here are a few of the benefits of hiring a van to make the move.

Hiring a van saves time and makes packing easy

One of the most obvious and amazing benefits of hiring a van when moving to uni is that it saves time. Packing up your belongings is far less stressful when there's enough space for everything to comfortably fit everything in the back. It'll stop the need for a game of car boot tetris and unpacking and then repacking, trying to make things work when there's no more room. You'll be able to get everything your child needs for necessity and convenience from A to B in one easy trip - eliminating any annoying and inconvenient back and forth. And of course, sometimes that’s not even an option if your child's opted for a university far from home.

Our vans can take you wherever you need to go guaranteed

Another significant benefit of hiring a van is it can take you anywhere. Renting a van can be ideal for families without a personal vehicle or those whose car may have difficulty travelling long distances with a large amount of cargo. Also, using your own vehicle may not be cost-effective due to the cost of fuel right now. Our flexi hire price includes maintenance, 24-hour breakdown cover, manufacturers warranty, a generous mileage allowance, and a replacement vehicle in the unlikely event it ever came down to it! So, renting a van with us provides a straightforward and reliable way to guarantee your child a smooth and successful move and start them off on the right foot.

You can keep the van as long as you like

If your child is moving far from home and the journey will be long, you may want to spend some well-needed quality time with them before making the trip home. Moving far from home, alone, can be a frightening experience at first, and the comfort of having parents or older siblings there while they settle in can make a huge difference.

That's why it's worth considering our vans on a flexi hire basis - you can keep them as long as you like! From spending the night to staying a few days, you can keep our vans for as long as you need - and for a very reasonable price! We pride ourselves on our customer service, and we know how inconvenient a man with a van can be when you're figuring out the trips as it happens. So we make it easy for you to plan your journey in whichever way is best for you. All we ask is ask that you return the vehicle to us with a full tank and everyone's happy!
