Welcome to Howard Self Drive

Having been in the industry for over 30 years, we are confident we can meet all your vehicle hire needs. Based in Woking, Surrey, we are BVRLA quality assured and can provide car, van, lorry, minibus and refrigerated vehicle hire within the UK as well as van overseas hire. We also cater for the contract hire market. 

All our prices include both insurance and VAT, so there are no hidden surprises. All we need are your postcode and national insurance number. Book online now for a 10% discount off your hire charge (limited time only).

Cars for hire

We have self-drive cars available for hire ranging from small hatchbacks to people carriers.

Vans for hire

Our vans range from car-derived small vans that are a lot more spacious than they look, to 4 metre vans with tail lift. Our smaller vans are perfect for runs to the tip or for tradesman carrying tools all day. Our larger vans are suitable for moving europallets and house contents. We can also provide refrigerated vans for corporate events or cool storage. These vans have a single storage compartment and come with a standby lead for use when the van is parked.

Van overseas hire

Obtaining a vehicle from our Woking base for van overseas hire has never been simpler, providing you are aged 25 years or older. All our vans for hire come with a VE103A certificate, green card, breakdown cover and unlimited mileage, at incredibly competitive prices. We will even try to match the price if you find a cheaper quote elsewhere.

Lorries for hire

Perfect for office or house removals, our lorries can be driven on a normal UK driving licence if your driving test was taken before 1997 (otherwise a HGV licence is required). 

Minibus for hire

Our 9 seater minibus is perfect for camping trips, weekends away or sporting trips. It offers sufficient room for 9 people as well as their luggage. For family trips abroad or corporate team building events, we have a bigger 17 seater minibus, which can be driven on a standard driving licence (provided the hire is not for business use).

Contract hire

All our vehicles are available for contract vehicle hire. As we are an independent company we can source the vehicle best suited to your needs, including specialist vehicles such as rab/crane trucks and roller beds.

Preloved vans

As well as a multitude of vans for hire, we have over 100 used vans for sale, all with comprehensive warranties, pre-delivery inspections and services as needed.

Please note: As of the 8th June 2015 any person wishing to rent a rental vehicle must know their national insurance number along with the post code or this can be done by them personally before the rental period.
