Recommendations........ 'Hover over to pause quotes'

Andrew Dale

'Very efficient staff, always polite and friendly, nice new cars and always clean. I have used FIRST for many years and have always been very pleased.'

Dave Otterburn

'I have only ever received consistently good service with no fuss with First Self Drive and they have always looked after me so I keep coming back.'

Wayne Easlea

'Just a quick line to say thanks for making the hire of the Luton Van so simple. We won't hesitate to use you again.'

Kay & Alister Wederell

'We have now returned from our trip to UK and just wanted again to reiterate our thanks for the extra effort you and your company went to when we hired a car from you for a week on 23 September. We were grateful that you met us at the station and, not only that, agreed to transport our additional passenger (my aunt) back to her place as clearly we weren’t all going to fit in the hire car with all our luggage! It is these little extras that make hiring from a smaller company - like yours - a plus as opposed to the mainstream hire companies. Should we plan on returning to tour more of the UK, we would certainly consider hiring from you again.'

Colin Scoles

'Excellent service and helpful staff, I would highly recommend this company to anyone!'

Paula Curtis

'Hired a car for the wkend excellent price given. Customer service is absolutely 100%. I would highly recommend this firm for hire. We have in passed hired vans, Minibus & Cars. Well done to the team for ur service. 100% to u all.'

Sally West-Lindell

'just hired a minibus for work, lovely new bus, clean and a dream to drive, thanks to the guys at First, they are always first in my book. Sally at Waitrose.'

Emma Downes

'Friendly and helpful service had a little van for 3 days, did nearly 800 miles with ease. Would recommend this Company for van and car hire. Thanks Guys'

Cathy Cookson

'We have been using First Self Drive for the past ten years, including 3 house moves, numerous motorcycle track days with 3 to 4 bikes fitting in the back of a wide choice of vans, collecting furniture from auctions also. Always clean & tidy vehicles with superb service from all the team. Always our First choice.'

Lorraine C

'I would definitely recommend this company and would not hesitate to use them again. I hired a luton van to move house (long distance). They were clear on pricing and flexible on the times so that I could plan the move around the best times for me. The staff were very friendly and helpful when I made the booking and when I collected and dropped off the van.'

'Fantastic experience. Having never driven a van before I was thoroughly shown the controls and everything was explained clearly. First Self Drive could not have helped me more with the service they provided the other day and I cannot thank them enough. The van was in great condition, very clean on the outside and inside. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will probably be using them again very soon. Certainly next time I need a van, I know where to go!'

Dave Starkings

'Top team of guys! Very professional company and a pleasure to deal with.'

Reid Anthony Manson

'Would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to hire. Great car and friendly service.'

Norwich Van Hire from First Self Drive

Along with our extensive range of New Cars, we also have a very impressive range of Vans from the smaller car derived versions with their City friendly dimensions and car like feel to the much much larger extra long wheel base Vans with their vast load length and huge capacity for hard work. The Luton Van version with its huge uninterrupted cargo space and electric tail-lift proudly takes its place at the top end of our commercial fleet along with our 7.5 tonne trucks, both of which are fantastic for that house move and thrive on shifting those large awkward loads. Van Hire in Norwich on the edge of the Norfolk Broads has always been a very competitive market but our comprehensive fleet will satisfy the Daily Van Hire requirements or indeed the Long Term Van Hire needs of all our customers from the private individual to the Multi National Company.      

With a van for every task, we really do mean business, which is why those people thinking of Norwich Van Hire always think of First Self Drive.

Norwich Minibus Hire from First Self Drive

Our fleet continues with a comprehensive selection of People Carriers and Minibuses all available from our depot in Norwich, Norfolk. Starting with the accommodating and refined seven seater models before moving on to our long wheel base nine seater versions, which as well as having a cavernous boot offer flexible seating for up to eight adult passengers plus the driver. The largest of our Minibuses is the seventeen seater which whilst being robust and durable has been designed to be both spacious and airy. We have availability for both Daily Minibus Hire and Long Term Minibus Hire and as with all of our vehicles we offer the option to use our fully comprehensive insurance or for the customer to supply their own comprehensive cover.

We believe that flexibility is essential, which is why so many people who are thinking of Minibus Hire in Norwich always think of First Self Drive.
