When it comes to the most tried and tested work van on the road, you cannot beat the Ford Transit Custom.
Known in the business as a genuine workhorse, this van quite simply gets the job done with no fuss or stress.
This short wheelbase Transit has outsold all equivalent vans in the UK for over four decades and the reasons are plain to see.
Not only will you fit all the tools and materials you need in the back, the short wheelbase means it is still easily manoeuvrable around small residential or inner city streets, perfect for domestic and commercial jobs alike.
The van can hold up to three Europallets and has a gross payload of up to 946 kilograms and a loadspace of 6.81 cubic metres, meaning it can carry standard 8’ x 4’ building boards with ease.
This van comes in either a flat-top or semi hi-top model, so heights vary depending on your needs.
Hirers receive 100 free miles per day – after which the mileage charge is 10p +VAT per mile.

Travelling abroad? With prior authorisation and additional charges, we can arrange additional vehicle insurance to take the vehicle outside of the UK. However we can ONLY cover vehicles that are used in the UK with our breakdown assistance. Vehicles taken abroad MUST arrange FULL 5 star European breakdown cover with either the AA or RAC. Cover must provide roadside assistance, full recovery back to the UK and provide a suitable replacement vehicle to continue your journey. Failure to do so may cause the vehicle to be stopped, impounded, seized and additional costs added. Please call your local branch to arrange and have a quote provided.
There is a small extra cost for any additional drivers of £4.50 per driver per day if required.
We endeavor to provide all our customers with the vehicle they request; unfortunately we cannot guarantee a particular model or every specification.

Not included in the price
We do not have fuel pumps on site or the capability to refill before every hire, therefore customers are expected to return the vehicle with the same amount of fuel in the tank as when the vehicle was first picked up. eg if the vehicle is picked up and has half a tank of fuel, then it is to be returned with half a tank or the hirer will be charged. A note of the fuel type is marked on the hire contract and on each vehicles fuel cap. Any costs associated with using the wrong fuel is not covered by the insurance.
London Congestion Charge
The hirer is responsible for paying the daily Congestion Charge fee when they travel into the Congestion Zone. It should be paid on the day you enter the Congestion Charging zone, however, you do have until midnight the next working day to pay (although it is a slightly higher charge if not paid on the day). You can pay via the internet www.tfl.gov.uk or by phone 0333 200 1000. Please ensure you enter the correct registration number (check the make and model listed is the same as the one on your rental agreement). Please record and keep the receipt details.
For details of the area covered by the zone please consult the Transport for London website and when driving look out for signs saying you are entering the Congestion Charging and a large white ‘C’ painted on the road.
Failure to pay the congestion charge will result in Kendalls having to complete paperwork on your behalf, which therefore results in an admin fee to cover costs. Minimum charge is £25.00
You are covered for the cost of repairing or replacing the vehicle (or parts of it) if it gets damaged or stolen, however, please be aware you will have to pay a fixed amount towards the replacement cost. This is known as the insurance excess or deposit.
Excess amounts vary by branch and vehicle and should be checked at the time of booking. Alternatively, contact your local branch for full details.
Non-UK Mainland Hires
All quotes provided are for use on the UK Mainland only. If you require the vehicle to be taken to the continent or off the UK mainland you will need to contact your preferred pickup branch directly to organise a continental hire agreement and request a quote.
CDW (Collision Damage Waiver)
CDW is not included with the online quote. However it can be added when booking online or in the office upon collection. Bookings quoted over the phone will have CDW added automatically for peace of mind and to speed up quotes, but can be removed if not required.
NEW CDW cover now available
Reduce the stress and financial worry of paying the higher insurance liability if you are involved in a collision. Our CDW cover reduces your liability if you have a collision whilst driving a hire vehicle, or damage that is caused to the vehicle whilst parked or unattended. Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) reduces the excess payable by the hirer in the event that the hired vehicle has been involved in a collision. This is a contractual waiver that must be taken at the start of the rental period rather than an insurance product. Typically, this will reduce the excess from between £1000-£1500 down to the deposit amount (£300 – £500). This depends on endorsements, driving experience, type of vehicle being hired and the intended use of the vehicle.
Our cover also removes the liability for LOU (Loss of use) following after an accident whereby you can be liable for up to two weeks LOU while the vehicle is in for repairs. CDW reduces this to zero.
The CDW option will be available during the checkout process.
