Is rental of Lutons, Mercedes Sprinters or other vehicles with or without tail lifts the best option?

A professional transport solution could save you money & headaches – compared to Self-Drive Van Hire or a Man & Van Service.


When faced with the need to transport large, bulky & heavy items many businesses or members of the public rush to find a local self-drive vehicle rental company to move their items. But is van rental really the best way to go?

Here at DEFENDA Couriers we are increasingly being approached to carry goods by organisations & individuals who previously relied on hiring vans on a self-drive basis for non-standard deliveries; but have subsequently realised that there are many advantages to outsourcing the work completely to a transport & light haulage company. Often the price of short term hire of Luton tail lifts vans or even standard long wheel base sprinters is far higher than employing a company with a standing fleet such as us, to carry the goods to their destination. It also means that you or a member of your staff is not tied up for the day as a makeshift driver and can get on with other important day to day duties.

As a Coventry based nationwide transport & courier company, Defenda Couriers regularly have vehicles travelling from Coventry to most other parts of the UK and it may even be possible to carry a customer’s items as a part load to these destinations at a substantial discount.

To find out if Van Rental is really the right option for you or if a professional transport solution provides a better option, simply call us on Coventry 02476 466000 to discuss your requirements. One of our team will be happy to advise on the best way to ship your goods.

A simple phone call & we can normally have a vehicle on site within 30 minutes for customers in Coventry, Leamington, Kenilworth, Nuneaton, Rugby or Warwick and many other areas nearby.
