Moved from Site Development

Not sure if this is the Motors forum ballpark, but since there are no hamsters involved it's not a Site Development issue

Get a truck from vantentals.ie. I use them from time to time for trucks, they give 200 km per day allowance and the 18 or 20ft body will move your stuff no bother. Picking up one on Tuesday myself to move a set for a play in the All Ireland competition.

If you are going to end up with alot of excess mileage it may work out cheaper to rent the van/truck for an extra day, as the daily allowance generally works out far cheaper than the excess rate for milage

Check their website for a quote, takes 2 minutes. I'm renting for extended periods a couple of times a year so get a good rate for that reason. Service is excellent too
