Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Okay, I've been stitched up by national and now can't get a van! Do any of you know a good company that will rent me a transit etc from london to be dropped of in Belfast?

    Thanks

  2. Have you tried Enterprise-rent-a-Van?

    They have hundreds of offices all over the UK and Ireland now :)
     
  3. Can I suggest Hertz??? They do one way rentals..
     
  4.  
  5. Wire?

    I fine mukka, it's them eeejits at National that don't! Managed to get one sorted though. Next question is this... How long do you think it would take to get from London to Liverpool with a 2 hour stop in Burry St Edmunds (<splel?)

    Any takers?

    If anyone wants a van from Germany going back to the UK let me know. I need to get stuff from UK to Southern DE but don't want to then have to drive the father-less-SOB all the way back to blighty.

    A solution I am considering is

    rent van in DE and drive to Calais.

    travel across on ferry

    renting a van in the UK, loading in London and driving it to France.

    drop kit in DE van.

    Retuirn to UK with UK van and hand in van back at Dover.

    Return to johnny EU and drive van to DE

    + is not so costly eurotunnel
    - two vans,

    The DS solution of course is to hire a van in UK with full insurance, drive it to DE and drop kit. Leave van in sh*t area and report stolen.

    Of course, I would never recommend doing that for your NI trip....
