Vehicle Hire In Cornwall

Telephone 01209 310767

Coronavirus opening hours

Due to the current lockdown advice and reduced number of staff, the Dash Drive office will temporarily close on Saturday mornings for vehicle collections.

The Dash Drive office will remain open from Monday to Friday 08:30 to 17:00 for all vehicle enquiries, bookings and collections.

Our customers can still book weekend hires online and collect vehicles on the Friday from 13:00 onwards. We offer our weekend hire customers an out of hours return service, by using our key drop off service.

Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we have put robust cleaning and sanitising procedures in place to ensure all rental vehicles are presented to our customers to the highest standard.

We will always endeavour to keep customer inconvenience to a minimum, but you may experience some delays or amendments to online booking and collection times.

We are also operating with a maximum capacity of 3 customers in the Dash Drive office at any time so we please ask that you try and arrive as close to your appointment time as possible. We do ask that facial coverings are worn throughout the premises to comply with Government guidelines.

If you have any questions please call 01209 310767 or email

Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you.

Doc Martin surgery closed for this year

So we’ve just had the last vehicles back from the Doc Martin set at Port Isaac – together with a glowing testimonial from Production Co-ordinator Katie Neal:

“We used Dash Drive on the seventh series of ITV’s ‘Doc Martin’ as our main provider of Production Vehicles.

We found Peter and the team to be very professional and helpful during our time in Cornwall. Dash Drive have worked on productions in the past which makes them easy to deal with and they have an understanding as to how productions work. We at times rang with last minute requests and they were always fulfilled.

I will pass on Dash Drive’s details if I hear of a Cornwall Production looking for a supplier and if the series was to go again we would defiantly love to use them again.”

Glad we were of service!  For Doc Martin fans, there are some new characters with familiar faces in the new series – Caroline Quentin plays a vet, and Sigourney Weaver (no less) also makes a cameo appearance!

And for those interested, the production company hired a 17-seater minibus, 2 estate cars and 2 vans for the duration of the shoot.
