Steeles Van Hire ::: Barrow ::: Furness ::: Cumbria
What do I need to hire a vehicle?
Driver's Licence: A current full driver's licence held for a minimum of 12 months (endorsements permitting). If you have the new 2-part photocard licence, we must see both the paper part, which shows the endorsements and vehicle categories, as well as the card part, which contains your photograph.
Two Forms of Identification: These must show an address and postcode. These can be either recent utilities bills, bank or building society statements. A passport is not acceptable, as it does not show your address.
Credit or Debit Card: This will be required for the deposit and the hire charge, which will be taken at the time of hire.
How old do I have to be?
Between 25 and 70.
Unfortunately our insurance cover will not cover any unemployed drivers.
What if I'm over 71?
We can probably still hire you a vehicle, but you must be able to arrange your own fully-comprehensive insurance and bring it with you at the time of hire. To avoid disappointment, we would strongly advise you to call us well in advance for more information.
What does the price include?
The prices we show, or quote, are subject to VAT which will be added to the cost of the hire. Mileage limit of 250 miles per day. An excess mileage charge of 20 pence per mile +vat is charged only if the van does more than 250 x miles per day.
How much is the deposit?
We do not require a deposit but the driver must have £650 available in their debit/credit card account to cover the cost of the insurance excess (incase the vehicle is involved in a accident)
How much is the insurance excess?
All vehicles are charged at £650 excess. You are responsible for any damage or loss sustained to the vehicle and are liable to pay the insurance excess in this event.
Is the windscreen covered?
Windscreen damage is your responsibility.
How can I pay?
By credit or debit card. All major credit and debit cards are welcome, including Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Switch. Whole or part payment of charges may be required by credit or debit card. Outstanding payments are taken from credit or debit cards.
What if I am late returning the vehicle, or I wish to extend the hire?
It is very important that you contact us and let us know. We can then advise you of any additional charges and if required can arrange payment and insurance cover by debiting your credit or debit card. Alternatively additional charges can be covered by monies brought in by you at the time of extending the hire period.
What happens if I breakdown?
In the unlikely event of your vehicle breaking down, please note that all Steeles Van Hire vehicles come with full nationwide breakdown coverage. Details of this will be included with the documents given to you at the time of hire. It is important that you keep these with you.
What do I do when I come back?
It's easy. Just return the vehicle to our offices, where someone who will check the vehicle for damage will meet you. We recommend that vehicles be returned to us with a full tank of fuel, as any fuel we dispense will be charged for. You will be issued with a receipt to say that the vehicle has been returned in good condition and this will also indicate the additional charge you will have to pay for any fuel.
