Specialist Refrigerated Vans

Bringing delicious food or fresh produce to a deli, restaurant or catering function? Cole Hire’s Mercedes refrigerated vehicles available for cold storage hire are ideal for transporting chilled and frozen products. They include single and dual compartment options, with or without tail-lifts, for maximum flexibility (it’s also worth mentioning that when stationary - plugged in and parked up for an hour or two or longer - our refrigerated vehicles act as an excellent temporary cold storage unit).

Small Van Hire

Ideal small transit van for collecting items like furniture from a store at a time that suits you. Comfortable and easy to drive, this vehicle has also been frequently used by our customers for private van hire to collect students and their kit from university after their first year before going into digs.

Short Wheel Base

This van has been used by customers to transport motorcycles to track days and car engine parts for restoration. It has also proved just the job for scout and cub groups to shift camping gear and for families to collect a replacement dishwasher. For private van hire, there is no more versatile vehicle.

Medium Wheel Base

If you have been clearing back the shrubbery and have garden waste to move then one trip to the tip in this spacious and easy-to-drive vehicle is a lot more convenient than 20 in the family car. Also, think of the money that private van hire can save you on valeting your car afterwards!

Long Wheel Base

When you need to collect readily made up kitchen units from the store, a spacious LWB van is just what you need. This reliable vehicle has also frequently been used by local schools near Cole Hire’s West of London base to transport equipment for sports days. This is also the standard van used for all types of business requirements, but it is equally useful for a variety of private van hire requirements.

Luton with Tail Lift

Moving furniture to a new home or from a warehouse to retail outlet? Cole Hire’s Ford Transit Luton vans are equipped with tail-lifts, load locks and shoring poles to assist loading and unloading while ensuring that assets remain safe and undamaged in transit.

Garment Vans

Delivering fashion items to a boutique or costumes to a theatre or film studio? Cole Hire’s Transit 350 Transit Vans are fitted with multi-height track and garment rails to keep clothing in pristine condition.
