How it works

HIRE PERIODS

 

You can hire a Porsche or Range Rover for as little as one day. The first 24hrs is charged at a set fee, all subsequent days (or part days) are charged at £100 each. If a hire period covers a weekend or bank holiday, the initial set fee will be charged at the weekend rate.

Our camper van hire works slightly differently. You can hire our VW, ( Florence) for a week, a midweek break or over a weekend.

Weekly hires are available either Monday to Monday or Friday to Friday. Midweek breaks are available Monday to Friday and weekend breaks run from Friday to Monday. Camper collection is between 3pm and 6pm and return between 8am and 10am. We're happy to arrange 'out of hours' collections and returns where possible.

VEHCILE COLLECTION

Most people collect their vehicles from our workshop just outside Bude, North Cornwall. (We are happy to store your vehicle here for the duration of your hire). Delivery can be arranged for a small extra charge.

On arrival, we will complete your paperwork and introduce you to your vehicle. Camper van collections have specific times so that we have chance to prepare the van between hires. We're much more flexible with our other vehicles, and happy to arrange collection at a time to suit you where we can.

You will need to bring the following when collecting your vehicle:

- Driving Licence

- 2x other form of ID confirming your name and current address dated within the last 3 months (e.g. bank statement, council tax bill, telephone bill - we can't accept mobile phone bills, utility bill)

- National Insurance Number (so that we can run a DVLA check on your licence) alternatively you can generate your own check code here https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence.

RETURNS

Vehicles need to be returned to our workshop by the time arranged so that we can prepare them for their next hire. Late returns will automatically incur a £50 per hour charge. We're sorry to be so strict, but late returns not only cause insurance issues, they risk delaying the next customer. We hope you understand.

BOOKING

You can book either by phoning us on  01288 255305 or sending an e-mail to info@colwillsgarage.co.uk.

We take a non refundable deposit of £150 once a booking is confirmed. The balance of your booking is due 14 days prior to collection.

We hold a £750 security deposit for the duration of the hire. This is refundable on the safe return of the vehicle. We do not accept cheque deposit payments.

COST

Our hire rates depend on the size of vehicle, your age (for insurance) and whether you have any endorsements on your licence. The rates on our website are for a full UK driving licence holder with no endorsements on their licence. Please contact us for an accurate quote.

AGE LIMIT

In general drivers must be 21 - 75 years of age. Minibus drivers 25-70, and must hold a D1 entitlement on their licence (if you passed your test before 1997 you'll generally have this, if not you must have taken and passed the D1 test). Please note that due to the engine size, we are unable to insure under 25s on our Porsches and Land Rover.

ADDITIONAL DRIVERS

Our standard rate covers one driver. Additional drivers may be added for a small extra cost.

ARE PETS ALLOWED?

 

We prefer not to have pets in our hire vehicles due to allergies. We hope you understand.

 

SMOKING

 

Smoking is not allowed in any of our vehicles.  

WHATS AN EXCESS WAIVER FEE?

Our insurance has a standard excess of £750. This is the amount the hirer will be charged if the driver has an accident. The waiver fee is an optional fee of £6 per day to reduce the excess to £200.

FUEL

We have a 'full to full' policy. Your vehicle will be issued with a full tank of fuel. We ask that you return it with a full tank. The penalty charge for returning it without a full tank is £12 plus the cost of fuel to fill the tank.
