Samantha Brookes, Lostock Hall, Preston.
“We hired a ford transit van for the weekend, we picked up from the Stan depot on Saturday morning and returned it on Monday morning. The van was practically new, unmarked and very clean. Completely reliable van and service as you would expect.
I ordered online and was a simple process, would highly recommend.”
