Van Rentals for Events

Concerts, big events and gatherings are coming back to life. Along with that comes a high demand for van rentals! We are happy to see things come back to life after COVID. It’s nice to see a return of popular events. Customers are renting vans at a higher frequency these days, especially during this holiday season. We are also seeing a return of old van customers who were frequent patrons in pre-COVID days. It’s encouraging to see people getting back to what they’ve been waiting to do all year. We are seeing more customers renting vans for swap meets and sporting events. We have not seen events like these come back to life in a long time. We’re also seeing more van rentals for event setup like for weddings and family gatherings. It’s heartwarming to see these gatherings become popular once again. 

Van Rentals in High Demand

Because trucks are in high demand these days, we recommend booking in advance. The holiday season can be pretty busy and it’s best to plan ahead. It’s also an odd year because we are technically still in “COVID” times. We recommend planning in advance.

Truck Rentals for Christmas Deliveries

We have truck rentals for all your Christmas gift-delivering needs! You don’t need Santa’s sleigh to deliver all of your presents, just a Dilly Van Rental. Our trucks come in a variety of sizes that are great for delivering oversized, large items. We even have areas for tie-down straps that provide extra security to that precious cargo. You can also have one passenger accompany you in the passenger seat to keep an eye on your items while in transport. 

Truck Rentals for Holiday Events

Trucks are also great for event setup and transporting large items like chairs, tables and speakers for sound systems. We know how difficult it is to transport all of this in a small sedan. That requires multiple trips. It’s easier to do it all in one trip with a large truck. Our trucks can accommodate all shapes and sizes of items. Depending on what you are transporting, we offer small sprinter vans which are great for smaller items. But, for larger items, we have bigger truck rentals that are great for these bulky items. Our trucks are inspected after each user and thoroughly sanitized. They also offer smooth rides and great handling, making it easier to transport and deliver delicate items.

Truck Rentals for Office Furniture

Our truck rentals can be useful in moving large, bulky items, like office furniture! It would be much easier to move everything in one drive compared to taking several trips to move large items.

Truck Rentals for Furniture

Wendell and his co-worker were driving down Dillingham Blvd. when they say our 14’ box truck parked out front. The truck says “Rent this truck!” on the side, and that definitely caught their eyes! Wendell gave us a call immediately and asked if the truck was available. Fortunately, it was! He turned around, stopped by, and rented the truck from us. They were actually on their way to get a truck rental from another moving company when they saw our truck. It was great timing for them, and for us! They used the truck to move some office furniture and were done within a few hours. They commented that our truck was a cleaner, smoother ride compared to the truck they rented the week before. We are so happy they saw us and could get a truck rental in time for what they needed. We look forward to seeing you two again!

Truck Rentals and Safety Checks

Our truck rentals are in good condition for a reason. We take good care of our vehicles and prioritize cleanliness and a good-looking exterior. One way we do this is by doing inspections with customers before taking the vehicle out and after upon returning. 

Safety Checks Before and After Renting

The process to rent out one of our truck rentals includes customers completing a safety qualification record form before taking the vehicle out. In completing this, customers walk around the vehicle to mark any visible dents or damages. Many car rental vendors require this. We do this so that both customers and staff are aware of damages before leaving the parking lot. We encourage customers to leave detailed records of the vehicle, and maybe even take a few pictures if that’s possible. We want our customers to feel well-aware of every corner of the vehicle. Although this takes extra time, these few minutes of familiarizing yourself with the vehicle can make a big difference when it’s time to drive. Upon returning the truck, we do a safety inspection with customers to check for any new dents or damages that the customer may be responsible for. We know this takes more of your time, but it is essential for us to do this.

Anna’s Truck Rental

A truck rental is versatile. They can serve several purposes other than just moving large items. We have some customers who utilize them as a temporary storage unit instead. Vans can be rented out for a few days so if you are only interested in temporary storage for a few days, this may be an option for you. 

Truck Rental vs. Storage Unit

Anna and her husband were making their move off the island to the mainland. They were here in the islands for many years but the rise in cost of living and pandemic unemployment conditions were not working well for them. She had a truck rental with us to load her items and take them to the port for shipping. Unfortunately, shipping was delayed and she needed to store her items for a few days until they were ready. Although we had a storage unit available, we do not prorate units for a few days and Anna would have to pay for the full month. 

 

We offered her an alternative which was to rent her another van and load her items in there. She could keep the van in our parking lot behind the gate until shipping was ready to go. This was a much cheaper and effective option for her. We were happy to provide this option to Anna because we know moving can be stressful!

Gary’s Moving Van Rental

A moving van rental can be hard to find during busy season. A good, reliable truck rental business can be even harder to find. Here at Dilly Van Rentals, we prioritize our customer service and clean vehicles. We encourage early reservations ahead of time but are usually able to accommodate same day reservations. 

Same Day Moving Van Rental

Gary had reserved a vehicle months in advance with a different rental business. He made his reservation in July for a vehicle that he needed in September. As he approached the reservation date, the rental business had the unfortunate news that there was no record of a reservation. Consequently, there was no box truck rental available for him. Gary was incredibly upset as he had large items that he was set to pick up and had no vehicle to transport them. He called almost every van rental company on island but did not find any with availability. Then he found us. We were able to get Gary a moving van rental that same day and get the paperwork done on his lunch break. He was excited that he found us and we’re happy that we found him!

Dilly Van Rentals Price Structures

Dilly Van Rentals offers moving truck rentals for reasonable prices. Our prices are lower than any other moving vehicle company on the island. We are a small, locally owned and operated business. It’s hard to compare us to chain businesses because we are unique! 

Dilly Van Rentals Price Structures

We once had a customer who was very upset with our vans and compared us to national companies. Our price structure includes a flat rate fee for the day plus a small mileage charge. Customers are also required to fill the gas tank prior to returning the van. Some large chain companies do not follow these same price structures. We got in touch with this unhappy customer and discussed that we’re a local business, not a large chain company. We confirmed that we have the lowest charges compared to any other moving truck rental company on the island. That same customer left us a beaming 5-star Yelp review mentioning our reasonable prices and loving the opportunity to support local! We were happy to hear this. 

 

We take pride in doing our research to make sure that our rates are the best and lowest on the island. And we are so happy when our customers want to support local! 

 

Dilly Van Rentals also offers other products and services on site. We have storage units and printing services all available at Dillingham Self Storage!

Moving Truck Rental Customers Turned Storage Tenants

Some of our moving truck rental customers learn about our storage facilities after renting one of our trucks. We are happy to offer both truck rentals and storage units because they typically complement each other. Many people who are moving into a new home need a truck rental and at the same time may need a storage unit. We have talked to many moving customers who need to store some of their home items intermittently while moving between locations. 

Moving Truck Rental

Kaipo rented his first van with us last year. He’s rented a truck from us a handful of times ever since we first saw him. On one of his last visits, he was chatting with a storage tenant about potential storage units becoming available in the near future. He was happy to hear that we have some units available. It would make his moving process much easier if he could store his items at our facility. He is looking to sign a lease with us in the very near future now. We are looking forward to welcoming a new storage tenant who came to us from our Dilly Rentals ohana!

Moving Van Rentals in Season

Moving van rentals are in season right now. Many people are moving into new homes or apartments. It is much easier to carry out a move with a van rental instead of doing multiple trips in a mid-sized vehicle. However, it’s not always easy to find a rental for the time frame that you need it. Vans are in especially high demand due to the shortage of rental cars for visiting tourists. Consumers looking for rental cars are overflowing into van and truck rental businesses. This is why we put a 2-day cap on our van rentals. This leaves vans open for locals to rent.

Moving Van Rentals in Season

Sharon was looking for a moving van to assist her in moving from Waimanalo to Waialua. Both of these locations are very far from our Dillingham Boulevard location. However, Sharon could not find a rental for the dates she needed. She called just about every moving vehicle rental business and not one had the availability that she needed. Then, Sharon found us on google. We had availability for the exact days she needed! She was so happy to book a box truck rental with us for her moving dates. 

 

Moving van rentals are in high demand now, so if you need one, book soon!

Truck Rentals in High Demand

Truck rentals are still in high demand. With so many car rental companies selling their fleets, visiting tourists are looking to rent our Dilly Van Rentals. As a result, we have been jam packed all summer. Our front desk has been fielding calls left and right from customers looking for vehicle rentals on vacation. Now that tourism is ramping up in the islands, car rentals are in high demand. Although a large truck rental may be unpleasant to drive while on vacation, some people are desperate for transportation! We have also seen some local ads for residents renting out their personal vehicles to visiting tourists. 

Truck Rentals for Moving

In order to accomodate customers who need truck rentals for moving purposes, we are offering reservations only for a 2-day maximum usage period. This is to ensure that customers looking for moving vehicles are able to reserve one. One of our loyal Dilly customers thanked us for not renting vans out for weeks at a time. We like to stay on good terms with our regulars who use vans for summer events! We’re hoping that the vehicle rental market balances out in the near future.
