Tips To Keep In Mind With A Hired Van

We have a variety of 10 seater van options available for hire in Auckland to suit your individual needs. when you’re hiring a van, you need to be aware of the potential damage fees you may have to pay if the vehicle is damaged. To avoid this, be sure to drive carefully and follow all the rules of the road. Here are a few additional tips to keep in mind:

Always Keep Left

If you’re not used to driving on Auckland roads, you might be caught off guard by the fact that, in New Zealand, people drive on the left side. This might take some getting used to; however, you’ll eventually get into the habit of staying on the left. Just remember to stay on the left when exiting or entering a parking lot, and be sure to check your right side when entering a roundabout.

Seatbelts On, Always

To avoid any accidents, it’s advisable that you don’t start driving the car until all the passengers have buckled their seatbelts. As the driver, you are responsible for the safety of everyone in the car. Be aware that you will be fined if any of your passengers are caught not wearing a safety belt.

Keep To The Speed Limit

Speed limits are there for a reason, so don’t use them as targets! If you’re driving a van that’s bigger and more powerful than your car at home, it might take some time to get used to. It’s easier to get a ticket for speeding, and it’s also harder to control your car – especially if you’re not used to it – when it’s going too fast. So make sure you keep an eye on the speed limit and you’ll get to where you’re going without any trouble. New Zealand’s weather can change rapidly, so if it rains, ices, or fogs, you should slow down to have more control over the van.

Brush Up On The Road Rules

If you don’t know the rules for driving on New Zealand roads, you should learn them, especially if you’re not from Auckland. If you get stopped by the police for breaking the law, saying that you didn’t know the rules won’t help you. When you’re driving, be sure to follow the rules of the road so that you don’t get pulled over.
It’s convenient to hire a 10-seater van in Auckland, but before you do make sure you’re aware of these tips. Knowing the road laws will help you avoid getting into trouble.
