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.

Dump your junk

You may or may not be aware that you now require a permit if you wish to take your waste to your local tip in a van. These permits are free and can be applied for on the Cornwall Council website.

But what about using my Dash Drive hire van?

Vans hired by a householder for 3 days or less to deposit household waste will be allowed to enter the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) without a permit. The householder will be required to present the hire agreement to site staff upon arrival at the HWRC and complete a trade waste disclaimer confirming the waste is household and not trade waste.

Remember! Take your rental agreement to proof you are hiring the van.

For hire periods over 3 days, the vehicle will not be allowed to enter the site without a permit.

For more information or to apply for a permit visit the Vehicle permit scheme page on the Cornwall Council Website, or call Cornwall Council on 0300 1234 141.
