Fire Truck Hire

Are you organising your wedding and looking for some original transport?  Of course, a Jaguar is nice.  So is a Rolls Royce, for example.  Or perhaps a horse drawn carriage is best?  The thing is that these transport options have been used so many times before that you may be finding them a little bit cliché.  If this is the case, why not go for something original and interesting and opt for fire truck hire?  If there is any link between you, your partner and the fire department, this is an even better idea of course!

What Is A Fire Truck?

A fire truck is, of course, used to put out fires.  However, after a certain number of years, fire trucks are taken out of service and many companies snap them up to offer them as hire vehicles.  There are many different types of fire trucks that are available for hire.  For example:
  • Vintage fire trucks, which can be incredibly old, incredibly cute and somewhat funny
  • Modern fire trucks, which are able to fit your entire wedding party on board

Of course, when you look at fire truck hire, you won’t be able to actually use it to put out fires or race through traffic with the sirens on.  But it can still be a lot of fun.

Where Can You Find Fire Truck Hire?

There are quite a number of companies in the United Kingdom that specialise in offering unusual vehicles for hire.  Very often, these specialise in providing trucks for movie sets as well as special days such as corporate events or weddings.  It should not be too difficult to find a company that is able to provide you with fire truck hire.  Some of the companies you could consider include:
  • Limobroker who offer nationwide hire
  • Crazy Party Engine who have a range of unusual vehicles for hire
  • The 999 Hire Brigade who specialise in fire engines for hire

Estimated Costs of Fire Truck Hire

Generally, fire truck hire is available for events rather than longer term hire.  The prices will mainly vary depending on where your location is compared to the company from which you will be hiring as you are likely to have to pay some delivery and pick up charges if you cannot pick the truck up yourself.  The price will also vary depending on the specific fire truck that you hire – the older and more niche it is, the more expensive it will be.

How to Find Fire Truck Hire

If you are looking for fire truck hire, you could consider contacting some of the companies listed above.  Alternatively, you could speak to some friends or members of your family who may have used unusual vehicle hire services in the past themselves.  Following a trusted recommendation is always a great idea, as you will be able to gauge a true opinion on not just the vehicles but also the level of service.

So, whether you are organising a wedding, a photo shoot for a charity calendar or whether you need fire truck hire for a scene in a movie, you should be able to find a company that can provide you with a fire truck without too much trouble.
