Quick, easy and a good quality van with no problems

The initial booking did require me to have a conference call with Icanhire and the DVLA, but, with a clean driving license this was soon completed. At last a company that values careful drivers!!
Although the process of ringing up to unlock the van sounds too good to be true, it worked and the van unlocked within a few seconds. All the paperwork was present and the fuel was as confirmed by text. All we had to do was return it in the same state - no obligatory payment for a tank full of fuel which we would never use.
Altogether a simple way to hire a van. Many thanks.


XL Workshop - Good quality but think before you assemble.

This is a robust building which can be assembled fairly easily in 5-6 hours by two able-bodied people. That doesn't mean two muscle-bound blokes, but you do need four pairs of hands to hold and connect panels. The quality is good on the whole, but make sure that you are there when the panels are off-loaded - the driver needs help to get the panels off the truck and it gives you the chance to make sure there are no bits of slight damage during the process. As the workshop is two panels long, replacing the linking nails/coach bolts with nuts and bolts allows you to pull the panels into shape on the base and adds structural strength. I did the same with joining the four roof sections and it paid dividends. So before you start assembling, read the instructions, check that you recognise each part and have a good think first. Otherwise, it's a breeze!
