Van hire for IKEA Warrington
January. The decorations have been taken down. The house has been cleaned from top to bottom. The weather outside is hideous. What better time to update your home and give it a fresh new look?
Here in the North West, we’re really lucky to have IKEA Warrington right on our doorstep – allowing savvy homeowners to improve their property on a strict post-Christmas budget.
From storage units and dining tables to lighting and accessories, it’s a mecca for stylish, functional and affordable furniture. And once you’re lost in the maze of floors and sections, it’s very easy to start loading up your trolley with items – big and small.
The question is… how will you get them home?
Some of IKEA’s flat-pack products, despite coming in multiple packages, can be very difficult to fit in an average-sized car. Which is why, if you’re planning a trip – and wish to buy a couple of bulky pieces of furniture – it’s usually worth renting a van for the day.
That’s where we can help, here at PSD. As a leading company for van hire in Warrington and the surrounding areas, we can supply the ideal vehicle, for you to visit IKEA and drive your purchases safely home. No hassle. No need for multiple trips back and forth to the store. No need to wait for a delivery. Just a convenient and practical way to get your furniture home, for a fair price.
Which size van should I hire?
Ultimately, the right van for your IKEA trip will depend on the size and quantity of things you plan to buy. Package details for each product can be found on the website, including how many boxes the item is supplied in and the dimensions of each box. So before your visit, we highly recommend taking a look at this information and comparing it with details in our van size guide.
To give you an idea, here we’ve done a little research into some of IKEA’s biggest best-sellers:
The Ekedalen 4-seater extendable dining table comes in six separate boxes: two for the table itself and four for the accompanying chairs. The longest box measures around 134cm. So to bring it home comfortably, a compact van – such as a Renault Kangoo – is ideal.
This has a generous load length of 160cm and a payload of 620kg and costs just £49 to hire for a day.
A long-standing favourite amongst IKEA shoppers. BILLY comes in various sizes to suit different homes. The biggest version features 12 adjustable shelves and is supplied in two boxes – each measuring 205cm x 29cm x 13cm. Therefore, to accommodate the length of these, we’d recommend hiring a short wheelbase van – such as a Ford Transit.
This will provide ample space for the two packages, as well as any other bits and bobs you pick up in-store – whilst still being compact and easy to manoeuvre. Daily hire is available for just £59.
As one of the larger flat-pack products available at IKEA, the PAX wardrobes are supplied in 10 individual packages. The longest is 210cm long – which means, technically, they would fit inside a short wheelbase van. But with so many boxes to stack and given the hefty weight of each, it makes sense to size up and opt for a bigger van instead.
A long wheelbase – such as Peugeot Boxer or Renault Masters – will give you a little extra space for loading and unloading, without compromising on ease of use or manoeuvrability. Plus, you’ll have plenty of room for any other items you buy and it still only costs £69 for the day.
