Do we have to hire the vehicle for the full weekend?
No. You can hire the vehicle for just one day if that is all you require. We don’t force you to pay for 2/3 days hire when you only need it for one day
Can we hire a van on Sunday?
Yes. Empire Van hire are open 7 days a week and offer an out of hours van hire and drop off service.
What documents do I require to rent a Van?
To rent any vehicle from us it couldn’t be simpler. You require a driver’s license photo card, passport, national insurance number and a current bill containing the driver’s home address. For every additional driver you require the same documents. If you have the old style paper license we require photo ID (passport)
What age restrictions apply to renting?
Our insurance allows drivers from the ages of 25 to 70. If you are a little either side please call, we may be able to help.
How old are our Vehicles?
Every vehicle we operate is current and well maintained with a maximum age of 5 years. This rule applies to each and every vehicle on our fleet.
Is our rental vehicle covered by a breakdown recovery scheme?
Yes. All vehicles are covered by RAC nationwide operations. So there really is plenty of cover should the unthinkable happen.
What about insurance cover?
Our rental quotes always include comprehensive insurance cover unless requested otherwise by the hirer. Some customers may prefer to cover the insurance content of the rental via a scheme operated by their credit card provider – we would require confirmation of this before commencement of the rental. There is a financial saving in using this method. Any cover provided by a customer’s credit card would have to be fully comprehensive. Although our insurance is fully comprehensive it is subject to an excess of £1000. This is deductable at commencement of the rental in addition to the rental amount. Past driving bans or convictions may be subject to increased excess rental or excess amount. We must also be made aware of any pending driving convictions or physical disabilities that may affect your driving.
