DIY stores are seeing sales soar* as home owners continue to stick it out and improve not move. As the August bank holiday approaches, Europcar, the UKs leading vehicle hire company is urging home owners to think hire not just for the sander or the cement mixer – but for van to get all the equipment needed for that long overdue DIY project, home safely.
A BBQ with friends or a picnic may seem more appealing but with a typical British summer ruining any outdoor plans, many families will be using the August bank holiday to catch up on DIY jobs and get rid of unwanted household goods.
Europcar has vans of all sizes, from car-derived vans to flat-beds, and those with tail-lifts to ensure larger or heavy items can be moved easily and more safely. Prices start from just £30 per day.**
Catriona Lougher, Marketing Director for Europcar said: With the summer holidays almost over, homeowners planning to get the DIY done this bank holiday weekend can watch the pennies by taking advantage of van hire from Europcar. This summer more people than ever have been looking to save money all round, and Europcar is really helping DIYers get those little jobs done on a shoestring.
