Cardiff saw its industry and economy change rapidly in the last century; once one of the world's foremost coal exporters, Cardiff now has a thriving service sector economy, along with retail and tourism. The Senedd Building where the National Assembly is housed and the high rise apartments and office blocks represent the changing face of Cardiff as a city. One claim Cardiff can proudly make is of being one of the foremost shopping areas in Britain, making van hire in Cardiff very popular. You can go about hiring a van in Cardiff from our pickup points at the International Airport or Bessemer Road.
Shoppers love Cardiff, and Queen Street is Cardiff's main high street shopping strip. There is also a string of renowned retail parks throughout the wider Cardiff area in places like Culverhouse Cross and Newport Road where larger home improvement stores are plentiful. The Wenvoe Retail Park is home to stores such as Homebase, and it's joined by ventures such as the Cardiff Bay Retail Park and the Cardiff Gate Retail Park. These home improvement and DIY type stores make the city very popular with people hiring a van in Cardiff. Using vans to collect goods and refurbish new homes will always be a popular use for light goods vehicles and transit vans.
Cardiff also has a huge student population, due to the ever popular Cardiff University, which gives the city a real cultural edge in the modern arts. Students are often keen to rent a van in Cardiff for home relocation and transporting their belongings, as are people new to the area or those who are moving house. Cardiff's main road is the M4 which runs on the east west axis and then up the coast in a northerly direction towards places like Bridgend, Port Talbot, Neath and Swansea.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
