What We Do

About us. Turner Hire Drive specialise in van hire, car hire and minibus hire throughout Scotland and in England with depots in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Aberdeen, Perth, Hartlepool, Stockton-on-Tees and Stamford Van & Car Hire in Altrincham, Manchester.

Established in 1985, Turner Hire Drive, a Turner Group company, initially operated from a portacabin in Glasgow. However, at this time, the Company was made up of two members of staff who shared one telephone and managed the fleet of three vehicles.

Conversely, Turner Hire Drive maintains one of the largest independent fleets in the country today.
We operate our own service department and body shop; utilising modern, well equipped workshops to ensure our vehicles are reliable and dependable.

Furthermore, we offer competitive rates on Owner Driver Schemes, Contract hire, Flexible Hire options and Fleet Management services. Importantly, all are delivered in line with our guiding principle of Hire Vehicles, Higher Standards.

Turner Hire Drive is proud to be associated with and a member of the BVRLA. The British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association regulates and governs the rental Industry in the UK.  Correspondingly some good tips and advisory guides to renting can be found here.

The Turner Group – About Us

The individual companies span a remarkably diverse range of sectors. However first-class services to customers is the principle objective of every single activity.

Over 2,400 loyal and dedicated professionals across both hemispheres (mostly outside its native Scotland) are employed. Moreover, the customer-focused group is driven by a passion for taking ownership of customers challenges. Furthermore, solutions of the highest standard are then implemented to meet agreed timescales and precise requirements.
