Cheap Van Rental Sydney – Hire vans by the hour

Rent vans in Sydney by the hour, cheaper than van rental from traditional rental companies.

From just $7/hour + distance with a small $5 booking fee, you can rent a fully insured van from someone in your suburb and save on the cost of renting it for a whole day.

Or for those bigger jobs you can rent a van from the day from just $40.

Everyone hates having to move house. Often you’re in a rush to get out on time and if you don’t have a big car and you want to save money on getting into your new place, that means lots of trips back and forth taking up your whole weekend.

If you don’t have a car, what’s the alternative? Removalists? That’s going to cost at least $200 and what if they don’t look after your stuff? Alternatively, you hire a van from a rental company which will cost around $100 a day, more if you need a high top or long wheelbase van.

It doesn’t matter if you’re moving house, moving furniture, people, stock, a motorbike, a kayak, a piano, work equipment or anything in between; you can save money by renting a van by the hour from one of your neighbours with Car Next Door.

What is borrowing a van from someone in your community like?


What about insurance and all of the paperwork?

Car Next Door’s rental vans are owned by locals, when the owners put their vans onto the Car Next Door platform, they are covered by our rental fleet insurance.

Like most corporate rental companies, your insurance is included in the cost of renting the car. The maximum excess is $2000 but you can reduce it to $500 by paying an extra $1.50/hr or $18/day.

Alternatively, if you need to use a van on a more regular basis, join our "Heavyweight" plan for $19/month to get rid of booking fees and reduce your damage excess to $500.

There is no paperwork to fill out, when you apply to become a borrower, we will review your application, check your driving record, authenticate your driver’s licence, and provide you with all the information you need about borrowing a van.

*No need to ask your friends to borrow their van again or pay for removalists anymore – just join Car Next Door online in 3 minutes, search for a van near you and book it online.
