Collecting the vehicle

So, there you are, you’ve chosen a company, booked a vehicle and now it is presented to you for you to enjoy! What next?

First Rules of Hire Club! - Be Patient. 2)Be Thorough. 3)Be Patient. 4)Be Thorough!

Did I just repeat myself? Good! I will say it all again, you need to be patient and thorough when you collect your vehicle.

I always recommend you allow at least one hour from when you are given the keys to when you can reasonably expect to drive away. Very often this is overkill but if you don’t need an hour then you get the time back, right? If you are presented with a terrible vehicle, you will need the hour! (Did I mention you need to be patient and thorough?!!!)

Whatever you do, DO NOT lose your temper with any person who is representing the vehicle hire company, this will get you nowhere or maybe even a visit from security or worse the constabulary! It just isn’t worth it. Stay calm on the outside!

Once you have mastered the inner rage, if you are required to that is, you are ready for the next stage, to be thorough!
