Van hire customers warned about the new DVLA Changes

The DVLA are to scrap the counter paper part of your driver’s licence. Drivers looking to hire a van or a car from the 8th June will have to log on to the DVLA website to generate a special online code before being able to hire a van or car.

Customers wanting to hire a van after the 8th June will need to input their driving licence number and national insurance number into the DVLA website to generate a one-time password to allow the hire company to check your drivers licence for points and other motoring offences. Customers who forget to generate code can call the DVLA’s premium rate telephone number but these calls will cost around £5 a time!

Clare Denton-Magee, director of Shire Link Van Hire said “Most customers are unaware of the changes. The code is valid for 21 days, so at Shire Link Van Hire we’re telling all of our customer when they make a booking and reminding them by email before their hire commences. These changes could cause problems for holiday makers this summer or late van hire bookings. As well as their two proofs of address, we’re now advising all customers to also bring their national insurance number when collecting their van.

The changes come into effect from Monday  8th June. Shire Link Van has been established in Huddersfield since 1981 and offers a fleet of vans and trucks to hire to both personal and business customers.

Quality Vans and Quality Support – Is It Possible?

There are a lot of van hire companies out there that offer their vans for hire for anyone who requires them. If you want to get the best services, then you should compare the contract agreements of the different companies together with the quality of services, condition of their vehicles and the extra charges that some Huddersfield Van Hire companies charge. This will not only guarantee your safety, but it will ensure you remain confident and use the van effectively to meet your need. We give you the opportunity to compare our services with the rest out there because we believe in giving you quality services – quality vehicles for hire and quality support – whenever and wherever you require during and after the hiring period.

We offer competitive and exclusive services to our Huddersfield van hire customers. All our vans for hire come with insurance cover (if required) without the hidden extras charged by a lot of van hire companies.

Location should be one important factor you should consider when looking for a van rental company. The location should be strategic enough to give you an easy way to get to your required location and close to the major road networks (and be able to find it…). Shire Link is located on Halifax Road close to the M62.

Availability is another important factor that makes Shire Link an excellent choice for hiring a van. At Shire Link because we understand that customers are never predictable on the time they need hire a van, we are open 7 days a week so that we are available for you whenever you need our help. We also have a fleet of different vans to hire to choose from.

Customer representatives always play a critical role in van hiring process. They provide you with the answers to all your queries. All the team at Shire Link are specifically trained and equipped with all the information that you would like to have. They are also friendly and easily reached at any time should you need them before and after your van hire. You can even seek advice from them regarding the type of vehicle to hire for specific tasks.

Are you thinking of hiring a van that will meet your expectation in a big way? If so, then our van hire service is the best thing to try.
