Having transported our possessions in 4 vans from J Hire over the course of a year to our new home in Spain , I feel suitably qualified to offer an opinion.
Simply put, I couldn't be happier - the service has been excellent throughout. Ken somehow managed to find us vans when we needed them and arrange a one-way trip - which is the real bonus in what J Hire offers. The vehicles have been trouble-free and a pleasure to drive ( something to consider when looking elsewhere, as not all companies are the same in regard to the age and condition of their vehicles ). Chris and Colin in Jacarilla have been great at arranging a suitable drop off at the depot ( which is easy to find ), which makes the whole process as simple as it could be.
With experience, the investment in a toll tag for France and Spain ( through Emovis ) makes that part of the journey easy in a right hand drive van and the best time to drive through France is a Sunday ( as there are far fewer lorries on the road )
Approximately 1100 miles from Calais to near Alicante is about 20 hours driving time, takes about 3 tanks of fuel ( much cheaper in Spain ) with a cost of about 150 euros in tolls down the western route, crossing at San Sebastian.
Happy motoring and thanks again to the J Hire team for all their help.

Hi ken, can't thankyou enough for your help and service so I thought I'd write a testimonial for you I'd you wish to use it on your website!
Myself and my Wife offered to move a friends possessions back to the UK after his death. After contacting jhire, they were not only amongst the cheapest but the level of service and communication they offered and the vehicle that they provided made the whole journey from Spain to the UK so easy.
It's not often you find customer service at this level and we both wish to thank Ken, for all his help which we consider this to be above and beyond helpful, and we will certainly be using jhire again in the future when we return to the UK.
