Why hiring a van is the sensible way to have a spring clean without leaving the car filthy.
It’s that time of year. For the next few weeks, your local tip will be besieged by spring cleaners intent on de-cluttering. If you’re likely to be one of them, we have a word or two of advice – don’t risk the car; hire a van instead.
In our experience, renting a van for your big annual clearout makes sense for a range of reasons:
A van is bigger: You could spend all day making multiple trips back and forth. Or you could hire a van big enough to take everything in one job lot – which means you get the majority of your weekend back.
Keep your car clean: There’s little point in spring cleaning the house only to leave the car in a complete state. Pack it all into a van and spillages are easier to clean and don’t ruin your upholstery.
Protect your car’s value: Sooner or later you’ll either want to sell your car on or hand the lease vehicle back. When you do, you’ll be penalised for stains, dents and tears. Hiring a van for your tip trip avoids the risk of damage to your car – and can cost far less than you might lose in penalty charges or depreciation.
Avoid the puncture: We speak from experience here. In fact, it’s difficult to remember a time when we last visited the tip and didn’t collect a slow puncture for our efforts. As sheds are emptied and flat pack furniture is disassembled, your local tip becomes a haven of loose nails and screws, one or two of which will almost inevitably find their way into your tyres. You can avoid the cost and delay of a trip to Kwik-Fit when you do the run in a rental van.
So if you’re planning a big spring clean, do the tip run in a van from TJS. You’ll be glad you did.
