When you decide that the time has come to move home you’re your office to a better location, one of the first considerations is how you can get all your stuff moved in the easiest, most stress free and cost effective way. If you do not have a van, truck or trailer, then is a good idea to check out the best and most affordable options you have. Start by doing a local web search where you will come across all the different options available. It is always best to talk with some of the local hire firms who are van hire experts. They’re there and ready to assist you in finding the right van that is ideal for your needs and dedicated to making your move and experience as affordable and hassle free as possible.

So just how far can you get, if you pay $100 for your hire

    • The basic rental charges range from$39 to $55 for a hire with a total time of 5 hours or less. So if you are doing a short distance move in the local area this may be a good option for you. You should be sure of the total distance you need to travel, including picking up the van, driving your load and returning it to the depot after finishing. If you go over the "allowed free" kms you will have to pay between 27 and 29 cents per km. If you do a large number of extra kilometers, then the cost could be considerable.
    • There is often a reduced rate for hiring during off peak times Monday to Thursday and some companies offer an overnight hire where you can take the van after 4 pm and return it before 8 am the following morning.
    • A basic day hire is from $75 a day with 100kms of travel and you can for just a little more get options for unlimited km so you do not have to worry about extra charges.

All van hire on the Gold Coast comes with the standard Insurance liability that is included in your hire. This means that you are covered for amounts of damage or insurance claims that are over $3,000, but you are still liable for any amounts or charges for damage under the $3,000 excess.

There are options where you can get extended cover where your liability is reduced starting at around $30 a day, so you are only liable for damage under $750 for drivers over 25 years old or $1250 for drivers between 21 and 24 years old. It always pays to check your credit card as many cards include a comprehensive insurance cover which included these rental insurance liabilities.

All rentals require you to leave a refundable security bond of around $300 or leave a signed imprint of your credit card.
