Frequently Asked Questions
No. Van hire vehicles are rarely stopped by the Police as the sign writing clearly shows its purpose.
Thank heavens that irrespective of the type of vehicle being driven the Police and Customs will always do their job. Are self-drive vehicles of particular interest? Of course not. We did have one client delayed at customs when our vehicle was being used to transport 500 bottles of wine into the UK for her sister’s wedding. The customs held the vehicle with its contents until the lady could prove the wine was for private use, she then went on her way for her sister’s big day.
On rare occasions over the years there has been incidents involving Luton vehicles that have proven to be overloaded. These vehicles are widely used for self-drive van hire and removals all around the world and are ideal for loading items which could require a tail lift like white goods, bulky sofas, divan beds, wardrobes and chest of drawers etc. along with some boxes, but not too many.
Some companies who only offer removals are sadly concentrating their efforts on writing misleading information on websites about one way self-drive van hire and Way2Go, obviously believing we are the reason they may be struggling. They have even searched the web to find scary pictures of things going wrong for people on the other side of the world! However, we are confident that our wide range of services and vehicles, along with helpful information on the independent forums and our testimonials will allow the public to make up their own minds.
The average total cost is between £1280 and £1400.
With Way2Go you simply rent the van one way where the savings are greater than ever as there is no need to return the vehicle to the place of origin, no need to pay for labour costs when using a removal service, no need to pay for flights and airport transfers to your new home and in addition to this, Way2Go Hire can also offer you a discount when sailing with Brittany ferries between UK-Spain-UK. The sailing is only 24 hours and includes a cabin so no need to pay for hotels. That’s why one way van hire UK to Spain makes sense.
By using the ferry between UK & Spain 24 hours including a night’s sleep in your own cabin.
