When you own a car, you are committed to a number of associated running costs. So, if you don’t need to drive every day, then why not consider hiring a car, as and when you need to? Instead of buying a vehicle, not only will you be helping to save the planet, but you may also save more money in the long run.
If you’re centrally based in an urban location, you may find that you only use your car occasionally. If you sometimes have to travel a long distance for work, it can prove cheaper to hire a vehicle when you go away, rather than permanently owning one. If you’re part of a team that works away, then it’s usually less costly and more environmentally friendly to rent a car and travel together as a group.
Moving items for work
If you run a business that requires items being moved on an ad hoc basis, then it might work out cheaper to hire a vehicle for this very purpose. When you choose a vehicle for your exact needs, you can also select a suitable size for your intended load.
Moving office or house
Why make several trips to your new office or home, when you can simply hire a larger vehicle to move as much as possible all in one go? Not only will you be reducing the level of polluting vehicle transmissions, but you will be saving precious working time too.
Before you rent a car or van, here are seven important checks you ought to make:
Lastly, always question anything you don’t understand on a rental contract, so you are 100% happy that you have hired the right vehicle for your needs.
If you are thinking of hiring a car or van, then why not check availability on our rental website? Call 0116 282 6667 for advice.
It’s been a really busy year at Jordan Motors! As a family business, our focus is on helping our customers with their car repairs and services, as well as giving back to our local community. So, in this festive round up, we thought we would share some of the different ways we support our chosen charities and how we offer reassurance to our customers.

We support LOROS
LOROS is a local charity that’s very close to our hearts, which is why we have supported the incredible work carried out by this hospice for many years. We have a LOROS donation station in our reception area. So, if you’re thinking of having a pre-Christmas clear out, then why not bring any unwanted clothes, shoes and toys down to our garage?
Santa Run for Rainbows
This year’s chosen charity for the Santa Run is Rainbows children’s hospice. In previous years, we have supported The Salvation Army, The Laura Centre, LOROS and MacMillan Nurses. Santa Run 2019 takes place on Sunday 22 December and Monday 23 December, and will also be in memory of Doug Lines, who used to open his home in The Burrows each year to raise funds for Rainbows.
On Sunday, the Santa Run will start at 16:00 with Copt Oak Gardens being the last visit and on Monday, we will start at 18:30 from Carlton Avenue to McDowell Way. You can follow the Santa Run on Facebook.
Christmas Tree Festival, Braunstone
Continuing with our festive theme, we are also supporting the second Christmas Tree Festival at St Peter’s Church in Braunstone. It’s always such a joy to see people’s creativity being expressed through their beautiful trees! Follow our Facebook page for photos.
We would like to wish all of our customers and our local community a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
