Can you collect me from the airport? On availability

Yes, we can usually pick you up from the airport depending upon the time and day of your flight. This must be pre-arranged at the time of booking. There will be a pre-arranged collection point or the alternative is to use the Metro, which can be boarded inside the airport terminal – two stops and you are here, disembark at Kenton Bankfoot.

Why do I have to leave a deposit on a card?

A security deposit to cover the insurance excess is required for any potential damage or fines.

How do I generate a 'DVLA Unique Code'?

You can visit and follow the instructions to generate a unique code.

I still have the old style licence not the two-part type, can I still hire?

Yes you can still hire but we must see some type of official photo i.d. such as a passport or work photo card.

If you have any questions regarding hire of a vehicle please take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page and if you can’t find the question drop us a email.

Hired a Luton van for moving house. I was a bit nervous driving something this big but it was perfect for the job and got the hang of it quick. Big enough for wardrobes and beds. The power lift at the back made things a lot easier too. Great van, great service, great value.

Mr Laing

Absolute joy to hire from. After the initial enquiry everything was explained about what was required, the cost and time scales etc. When I was let down by solicitors and needed to extend my loan period a quick phone call and all was arranged.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend AM Hire to anyone.

I will certainly return when/if the need for van hire is required.

Mr Henderson

Hired a 17 seater minibus via AM hire using their online process and found it very easy to use. Minibus was nearly new, clean and ready for me to collect at the agreed time. Drop off was very quick and easy also. Price was also reasonable and had no problem adding an additional driver or extra miles. Would definitely recommend and will certainly use again in the future. Thanks Colin
