We are trusted suppliers of vehicle rental services to local authorities, housing associations, schools, colleges, and many, many companies both large and small, not only over Dorset and Somerset, but throughout Great Britain. The company has been built by offering high standards of service at competitive rates to many businesses with specific needs. That is why our customers keep coming back to us time and time again.

Dorset Vehicle Rentals offers a wide and varied fleet of over 600 modern, up-to-date vehicles, giving you a greater selection of car, van and commercial vehicle hire.

We have a large selection of cars, and MPVs, including automatics available to you.

Moving? Then why not consider our Jumbo Luton's or one of our 7.5 tonne trucks, these vehicles have tail lifts which are suitable for lifting those heavier items.

We started to work with Dorset Vehicle Rentals in late December 2011 as we had a requirement for a multitude of vehicles at various stages for short to medium term contracts. One and half years later I can honestly say that the service received from Dorset Vehicle Rentals has been absolutely first class and second to none. In particular the help and service received from their Business Development Manager Wendy, just outstanding. When contacting the team, anyone from the maintenance guys and hire staff to the Management team are really helpful. I cannot praise them enough and I would recommend their services to anyone. A big ‘Thank you’ to you all at Dorset Vehicle Rentals. Simon O. Gloucester


“DORSET VEHICLE RENTALS are our choice every time we need to hire vans or people-carriers – they’re local, always have what we need, when we need it. Their customer care is brilliant too – upbeat and professional!” Mrs P from the Heritage Sector.
