    I don't really need a driver. Its just a van to carry 4 of us and the equipment. I'm just seeing if its cheaper to hire (plus petrol) than taking 4 cars.

    Most gigs are a few hours drive away

    6 seaters probably, but no one does 4 seater vans of any size. You can always fit a case or two on the spare seats.

    When you guys hire a van, do you hire people to drive and help with loading/unloading, or do you just literally hire a van?

    Only reason I ask is that a friend and I are starting a record label and we're looking in to the possibility of offering a van hire service where we would drive you and your equipment your event, help you load and unload and then obviously drive you back to help support and fund our own record label.

    Just wondering what people thought of that?

    Many thanks

    I have a van and am happy to help out local bands if I am available

    It seats 9 and has loads of space in back for your gear.

    As long as you cover my fuel and get me in the gig I will be happy, especially if your band is half decent. Anything extra would be a bonus.

    It's only something I can do in my free time, so I won't always be available, but I will always try and help out if I can.

    PM me on here
