    I would happily recommend Dorset Vehicle Rentals, Dorchester, to anyone looking to rent a van, I've used them before and the service was fantastic so I didn't hesitate to use them again. My mum actually recommend them to me as she'd heard such good things. I was moving from Southampton to Plymouth, but rather than use a local firm I used Dorset Vehicle Rental because of their great service. John went above and beyond to find me the right van, which was 7.5 tonnes, and it was ready and waiting for me on the day.

    I've used Dorset Vehicle Rentals, Dorchester, previously, so didn't hesitate to use them again as I've always had a good service. This time I rented a van and it was ready and waiting for me when I got there. I'd happily recommend to others as they're a great team. A definite 5 stars from me!

    I have been using Dorset Vehicle Rentals a while now and hire from them on a weekly basis. The service is very stress free and easy to use, the staff there are very thorough and are able to supply a vehicle at short notice without any issues. I would have no trouble in recommended their services to others.

    This was the first time I've used Dorset Vehicle Rentals and I was extremely happy with their service. I hired a car from them and whilst we were loading it found that my mothers wheelchair wouldn't fit in the back. They were so accommodating and swapped the car for a more suitable one and went through all the new paperwork with no bother what so ever. I would use them again in the future and also recommend them for their good service.

    I cant praise Dorset Vehicle Rentals enough, I've been using then for the past 20-30 years. They are the only place that hires out a van with a tow bar which is so handy. Every time I go in the staff are always the same people and are brilliant, I think that says a lot about a company if the staff have been their a long time. They are very accommodating at short notice and generally provide a fantastic service. I couldn't recommend them more.

    I have used Dorset Vehicle Rental a few times over the years and have always had a really experience. All of the team are really friendly and approachable and all extremely knowledgeable. The vehicles have always been in really good condition. I would definitely recommend using this company if you are looking to hire a commercial vehicle.

    We hire vehicles from Dorset Vehicle Rental on a regular basis - 4 to 5 times a month. The staff are always friendly and easy to deal with. The vehicles themselves are always well kept and in good condition. I would happily recommend to anyone.

    I have used Dorset Vehicle Rentals quite a few times over the last year. Most recently we hired a Luton van. Overall the vehicles have been very clean both on the inside and out. The prices they charge here are fair and the guys I have met here are always very pleasant to deal with. I recommend their services as they will never let you down.

    Very good. We reserved a van, when we got in we noticed the fuel gauge only had 5 miles left on it. The guy who runs the place wouldn't let me take the van as it wasn't fit for purpose and instead gave me a newer, better van. The staff here really do go above and beyond. The only thing that was disappointing is the drop off area when you are giving the van back. It's a little area outside the lot that just gets filled up with vehicles at the end of the week. So you either have to leave the van on the road where it could get damaged or take it back home and hand it in the next day. Other than that everything was perfect. Thanks Dorset Vehicle Rentals.

    Dorset Vehicle Rentals are absolutely fabulous. Due to my age I'm only able to hire small cars from them. The cars are always very very good and the staff here are lovely and I always have a chat with them. When I am of age I will hire something bigger from them and them only as they are the best around.

    Transits, box vans, Luton vans, flat beds, I have hired the lot from this hire company and it's the only place I will ever go as the price is right, the vehicles are great and the guys who run the company are really friendly. What more can you ask for? Thank you Dorset Vehicle Rentals.

    Dorset Vehicle Rentals are absolutely brilliant. I hired my first car with them last week. I was impressed with the condition it was in and the service provided by them too. They are better than I thought, with that in mind I will continue to use them and I highly recommend them. Thank you so much Dorset Vehicle Rentals.

    Very good. The staff here are really good. They always go the extra mile. If they don't have what you need available, they will get it from one of their other depots. They are very polite and helpful too. The vehicles are always clean. I hire transit vans from here and they are always in a very good condition. I highly recommend them here.

    I always get an excellent service from Dorset Vehicle Rentals. I'm a repeat customer of theirs, if my van is ever out of use as I am a sole trader, I can always rely on them to provide me with a hire van until mine is back on the road. The team there are always really friendly and happy to help. If anyone needs to hire a vehicle I would 100% recommend them.

    I hire vans regularly from Dorset Vehicle Rentals. The vans are always in a good condition other than a couple of dents on some and they are always clean, apart from one time when I got a van at short notice so they didn't have time to clean it but it was still in an acceptable condition. Over all I'm really happy with the service they provide here, but there is always room for improvement.

We hire vans from them and they are always able to provide what we need, even at short notice. They aren't the closest company to where I am but I'm happy to drive the extra 10 miles to get to them, their vehicles always look good and the staff there are great. I would fully recommend them and already do to anyone that needs to hire a vehicle. 5 star service.

    I'd 100% recommend Dorset Vehicle Rentals, I've been leasing from them for the past 2 to 3 years and they have always provided me a superb service. They have even gone out of their way to jiggle things around for me if I need something specific, to suit my needs. There are a few local companies closer to me but I'm more than happy to drive a little further due to their second to none service. I deal with John and have recommended their service to others.

The guy I deal with is always very helpful and rings me during the day to see if I want to pick the van up early. Overall it's really good here and I will continue to use them and I recommend them too.

    I deal with John Paul regularly, who is very personable, friendly and always on hand to help me when I need a vehicle. I don't own a car, but when I need to hire one, I go to Dorset Vehicle Rentals. They are a bit out of the way for me, but due to their customer service skills, I've been using them for the past 8-10 years. Great range of vehicles, at great prices, I've already told many others about them, and will continue to do so! In fact I need to hire another motor at the end of the month. Thank you for the service.

    I hired a long wheel based panel van from here and I am extremely impressed. I have used hire companies in the past and they just make you jump through so many hoops it makes you think should I have even bothered. With Dorset Vehicle Rentals, mainly the Bridport branch, they are very flexible and make the whole experience stress free. The staff are great and very helpful. I shall be using this hire company from now on and I recommend others do too.
