7.5 Tonne Truck Hire

Many companies opt for 7.5 tonne truck hire instead of purchasing a truck.  This is because unless you use a truck on a daily basis – at least – they are incredibly expensive.  Owning a truck means you hold responsibility for its maintenance, MOT, servicing, insurance and road tax, as well as any other little things that can happen.  By opting for truck rental, all these things are included in the price of your rental, meaning you will only have one flat fee to pay.

What is 7.5 Tonne Truck Hire?

7.5 tonne trucks come in a range of different shapes and sizes, including flatbed trucks, curtain sided vehicles, refrigerated trucks, box vans and so on.  There are also many manufacturers that produce 7.5 tonne trucks, but the most popular ones are Mercedes Trucks, DAF Trucks, Volvo Trucks, Scania Trucks, MAN Trucks, Iveco Trucks and Renault Trucks.  If you do have a personal preference for a specific manufacturer of truck, you may have a bit more difficulty finding one, although most companies offer trucks from a range of manufacturers.

Estimated Cost of 7.5 Tonne Truck Hire

The cost of 7.5 tonne truck hire will vary greatly.  Some of the things that will influence the price include:

  • Whether you require any optional extras (a driver, satellite navigation, air conditioning, etc.).
  • Your distance from the depot, particularly if you are unable to pick the truck up as you may be charged for pickup and delivery.
  • Whether or not you will be taking the truck abroad and if so, where to.
