The van was perfect for our trip, the fit-out internally is still fresh out of the box and the van drives really well and is easy to manoeuvre around tight lanes etc. We took it up to Scotland and very much enjoyed our trip, stopping off grid and at a site with facilities to hook up to electric etc. Would recommend Shaun as a host, he gave a very thorough demonstration of all the vehicles features.
Motorhome and Campervan Hire in Kirkham
Shaun was a very friendly, helpful owner, always ready to help with any queries by phone before or during the hire period. As newbies to campervanning he explained everything well and in layman’s terms so driving and using the van was comfortable and relaxed. He has a range of add-ons that come with the van (e.g. roll mats for the bed, camp chairs and a table, spare gas bottle, torches) and the van itself is well equipped and ready to go. Our only regret was that we did not take up Shaun’s offer to use the drive-away awning – but hopefully we’ll try that next time. We were even supplied with canned goodies in the fridge (pale ales and spirit mixers) – these went down a treat. As he had no immediate prior bookings to our planned pick-up or nothing immediately after our due return date Shaun let us collect earlier and return later so we had a few more hours in the van, which was great. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we had to come home a day early and Shaun has kindly offered us to take a day at no additional cost later in the year, which we both appreciated. I have no doubt we’ll be taking on the offer hopefully in warmer, drier weather than we met this time on our Yorkshire coast tour. Having never driven a long wheel base van before and having heard tales of difficulty parking I’m pleased to say this was not the case, driving and parking was easy (and the parking sensors are a useful backup if you are in any doubt). The weather could have been better but I don’t think the van could have been. A highly recommended, friendly and minimal stress hire process. Thank you Shaun and Kate 😊👍
From start to finish, spot on 👌🏻 Elliot is a true gent and his van has me green with envy! My first time hiring a camper and Elliot couldn’t do enough to help. He was highly responsive, understanding and flexible. No dramas at all. The van is a real stunner, turns heads everywhere. The only hard part in this whole experience is handing back the keys... it’s gutting! I’ll be back. I’m even weighing up next weekend already 🤦🏻♂️
We loved the interior layout of this motor home. With the exception of the sink waste which we could not drain whilst parked level, we found it very comfortable and easy to drive. Though it is probably standard to need to fill with water on taking it over, we weren’t expecting this, so perhaps this needs to be mentioned in the advert. However, Mohammed was very attentive, answered all our texts immediately and was very generous with the leasing hours which we really appreciated. We would definitely recommend or hire this motor home again.
We hired 'Arnie' for the week and the van was excellent! Lovely to drive and park and wasn't too bad on fuel aswel! Zena was excellent! Gave us a full tour of the van and was on hand to answer any of our questions we had to ask. Very easy and simple drop off and pick up! Will definitely be hiring a van from Orange Rentals again in the near future! Couldn't recommend their vans and customer service enough! Thank You
