Dorset Vehicle Rentals for self drive hire

Dorset Vehicle Rentals is a family run, independent vehicle Rental Company — established back in September 1995. We offer a range of services, from short term Daily Rental to Weekly Hire, Monthly Flexi Rental and longer term Contract Hire. Whether it is for a day, week, weekend, month or year we have the rental plan to suit the needs of both the private hirer and the business user alike.

We are trusted suppliers of vehicle rental services to local authorities, housing associations, schools, colleges, and many, many companies both large and small, not only over Dorset and Somerset, but throughout Great Britain. The company has been built by offering high standards of service at competitive rates to many businesses with specific needs. That is why our customers keep coming back to us time and time again.

Dorset Vehicle Rentals offers a wide and varied fleet of over 900 modern, up-to-date vehicles, giving you a greater selection of car, van and commercial vehicle hire.

We have a large selection of cars, and MPVs, including automatics available to you.

The commercial vehicle fleet consists of:

  • 4x4 Pickups (available as both single and crew cab)
  • Vans (small, SWB, LWB & Jumbo 4m), and crew cab vans (seating 6)
  • Jumbo Luton with or without tail lift
  • 3.5 tonne and 7.5 tonne Box, Curtainside, Tipper, Dropside and Flatbed
  • 18 tonne Box and Curtainside trucks, along with drop side lorries
  • We also have for hire our large fleet of mini-buses, seating 9 to 17

If you are looking to tow a trailer, we will have vehicles fitted with tow bars available.

Moving? Then why not consider our Jumbo Lutons or one of our 7.5 tonne trucks? These vehicles have tail lifts which are suitable for lifting those heavier items.

’Mid-week overnight’ rentals are also available on all our vehicles (depending on availability). Minibuses are getting increasingly popular for overnight rentals — suitable for clubs, sports events, and office parties or out of hours team building exercises.

We are members of Sixt, United Rentals and the BVRLA — offering national and worldwide vehicle hire. If you are looking to book your holiday car hire, UK or abroad — see the link on our website!

Our head office is situated in Dorchester, with branches in Weymouth, Bridport, Gillingham, Yeovil and Wincanton — covering all the local towns and surrounding villages.
