How to hire a van for one hour

Hiring a van for short durations is incredibly easy and straightforward. For an hourly van hire, put your pick-up and return dates as the same day in our booking tool and choose the hours you wish to rent for. You can then choose any add-ons or extra protective packages and pick your vehicle from your preferred SIXT branch. Choose a one-hour van hire for a quick trip to the tip, or extend to 2, 3 or 4 hours for a longer journey in your van.

Our SIXT Van Fleet

We have a large range of different vans to meet practically all moving and transport needs. In the UK we carry both Ford and VW models, all new and in perfect condition. For smaller transport jobs perhaps go with the Ford Transit Custom, whilst a larger (3.5 t) model is also available – the Ford Transit Large. For a lot of room as well as great driving control the VW Crafter Extra Large is a good bet, and for things like moving to a new house or large events we have the Ford Transit Luton Box and Taillift model, which has our largest cargo space.
