A Wide Van Hire Range

Rental cars are fantastic for getting around, but if you need to move a lot of cargo, you need to hire a van. We stock a range of sizes, including Small for the simple jobs, to Large, XL and Luton versions for big house moves. Whatever you need to get done, our van hire range will help.

Things to do In and Around Manchester Piccadilly

Manchester's fascinating industrial history is brought to life at the Museum of Science and Industry – something the whole family will enjoy. Other popular attractions include the GMEX exhibition centre and convention complex, concerts at Bridgewater Hall or the fashionable spa town of Buxton, nestling in the Peak District.

Or why not enjoy a thrill at Chill Factore's real snow ski slope, the longest of its kind in Britain? A rental car means you can explore the beautiful towns and countryside of the Peak District in comfort, too. 

Driving Information in Manchester Piccadilly

The A56, and particularly Bury New Road, to the north of the city is one to avoid during peak times, along with the A6 and Buxton Road in particular. 

If you are planning a road trip of the UK’s northern cities then Manchester is very well connected. The most common route to take from Manchester to Leeds is via the M62, whilst you’re also likely take the M62 southbound when travelling to Liverpool.
