Choice Vehicle Rentals, a Gatwick car hire provider, offers a wide range of vehicles for rent including minibuses. Here are some of the advantages that you can get from renting a minibus:

  1. Comfort

A minibus can accommodate more than 7 people. It can afford ample space and comfort during a long ride. The minibuses from Choice Vehicle Rentals have tinted windows and curtains for the privacy of the travellers.

  1. Space and Convenience

With a separate compartment space for luggage and belongings, you can even bring your own pillows or blanket if you want.

  1. Modern Amenities

A modern minibus offers the same features as a car — audio system, automatic emission, power steering, USB ports, plugs for computers and so on. Choice Vehicle Rentals provides minibuses that are fully equipped with heaters and air conditioners and depending on the agreement they may also be adorned with LCD screens!

  1. Low-End

The greatest benefit of renting a minibus is its affordable price. Split the cost between the passengers to limit your expenses.

Hiring a 7.5-tonne Vehicle at Choice Vehicle Rentals

7.5 Ton

Choice Vehicle Rentals offers a wide range of vehicles for our Gatwick car hire services. Aside from cars and vans, we also offer 7.5 tonne vehicles with tail lifts.

The 7.5-tonne Vehicle at Choice Vehicle Rentals

Our 7.5-tonne vehicle is powered by diesel fuel and has a manual transmission.

  • Common Use

7.5-tonne vehicles are commonly used by businesses for deliveries or by people who are moving house or business. They use this type of vehicle to transfer large and heavy articles like furniture and appliances. On the other hand, businesses use this type of vehicle to deliver hefty products or a large number of food supplies, packages and parcels. Since the 7.5-tonne has a tail lift (mobile dock leveller), it can facilitate the handling and transferring of heavy products or goods from the bed of the vehicle to the ground level or a loading dock and vice versa.

  • Compliance to Low Emission Zone

All 7.5-tonne vehicles at Choice Vehicle Rentals comply with London’s Low Emission Zone standards. The Low Emission Zone or LEZ is a traffic pollution charge scheme that works 24/7, all-year round in most parts of Greater London. It works to support the aim to reduce the tailpipe emissions of heavy diesel-powered commercial vehicles operating in London. Vehicles that do not comply with the high emission standards will be charged. On the other hand, there are vehicles that are allowed to enter the controlled zone for free.

The C1 Category Licence Requirement when Hiring a 7.5 Tonne Vehicle

To hire or book a 7.5-tonne vehicle, you should possess a C1 category on your driving licence and have previous experience in this category. The C1 Category driving licence permits people in the UK to drive C1 rigid vehicles up to 7.5 tonnes, with a trailer equivalent to 750kg.

Thrifty Reminders when Renting a Vehicle

thrifty reminders

Renting a vehicle can help you save a lot of money but you could save a lot more if you follow these thrifty reminders:

  • Avoid Sunday rentals

Picking up vehicles on Sundays is more expensive compared to renting from Monday to Saturday. Most rental companies in the UK, like Gatwick Car Hire, are closed throughout Sunday. If you are going on a weekend trip, schedule to pick up the vehicle on a Friday or Saturday.

  • Book early

Book the vehicle that you want to rent as soon as you have finalised your holiday plans. There are companies that give discounts or packages to early birds. You can book a vehicle from Choice Vehicle Rentals via their website.

  • Know the difference between full-size and large cars

People are often confused with the differences between full-size and large cars. Full-size cars have less seating capacity compared to large cars. The latter can cater to 5 passengers and has enough space for luggage. However, the former is better when it comes to the exterior appearance. So if you are going on a long trip with your family, it is better to choose a large car instead of a full-size car.

  • Choose diesel engine vehicles

Choose a diesel engine vehicle if you want to save more on fuel costs. These vehicles are not noisy smelly or under-powered.

  • Always return the car with a full tank of fuel

Do not return the vehicle with an empty tank because the rental company can charge you twice or even thrice the amount of the fuel you actually used.

  • Take advantage of discounts

There are rental companies that offer discounts. If you find a deal, grab it as soon as possible to save more money.
