Birkenhead is a famous town in Merseyside; in large part that's due to the rich shipbuilding traditions of the area. It's right across the Mersey from Liverpool and just a few miles away from historic Chester to the south. Van hire in Birkenhead is commonplace because the town sits on the busy dockland area, which necessitates plenty of goods transportation. The Port of Liverpool is still a busy dock, and hiring a van in Birkenhead to transport goods is a good idea if you're taking a heavy cargo. John Lennon Airport is close by, as is the Wirral Metropolitan College.
