Hiring a bakkie is made simple and affordable when you work with The Yellow Rental Company. We stock a selection of well-maintained, exceptionally affordable bakkies for you to rent and with branches spread out across South Africa. Our bakkie hire services has become one that is readily accessible to those who need it.

Our bakkie rentals are designed to keep you moving forward, whether you are a small business or a bustling large enterprise. We also have a selection of trailers for hire.

When you find that the ordinary car is not up to the task of transporting what you need moved, or if enlisting a transport company is simply not financially viable or suitable, bakkie hire is the perfect choice for you. We also have vans for hire.

Hiring a vehicle to suit the job at hand is really an investment in your company. Opting to hire instead of buying comes with its own benefits and when you know that this option is readily available to you, you will find that it certainly takes off some of your logistical stress.

Our wide network of branches, spread out across South Africa, means you won’t be looking around for too long before you find the perfect match for your requirements.

Our branches can be found in all major South African cities including Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein, and Durban.

Why should you rent a bakkie?

Bakkie rental is, for many companies, the go-to solution. For the short term, hiring is both affordable and practical, while arrangements can be made for those who need a longer term solution to transport problems.

Hiring is immensely flexible and can be customised according to your specific needs, making it easier for you to plan for when you will be needing the hire, and it will also allow you to better organise your budget.


Aside from the money aspect of hiring, these are the other reasons why it is simply the better option:

It allows you to increase the size of your fleet

Some companies require more than one form of transport. Instead of paying out the extra capital and buying a vehicle that you will have to keep maintained, there are many options that allow a company to rent a bakkie for longer periods and in doing so, increase the size of the company fleet.

This method is cost-effective than buying, especially if you are not going to be using the vehicle on a day to day basis, and it is also going to mean you don’t have to worry about insurance and maintenance costs as you expand the number of vehicles at your disposal.

It allows you to easily transport things

It is not only companies who find renting a bakkie is beneficial. If you are moving house or office furniture, one of the more affordable options you have at your disposal is hiring the vehicle you need. When compared to the other moving options out there, this is going to save you money and it is also going to give you more control over the moving process and how you’d like to handle it.

It is ideal for holidays

If you are heading off on holiday, and need to have a vehicle that can carry all of your luggage, renting a bakkie is quite the perfect option. To ensure that things go according to plan and that your holiday goes off without a hitch, you can rent the appropriate vehicle for your trip.

It enables you to transport equipment

This is an especially beneficial thing when it comes to bands and the need to move around music equipment. There is no point in buying a vehicle when you could simply hire one that will get you and your equipment safely from A to B. You will be able to select the vehicle that is most appropriate for your needs and only pay for the time you need it.

How to hire a bakkie from us

We’ve made it as simple as possible for you to hire one of our vehicles. This means you can quickly have your admin sorted out and be on your way with your bakkie rental, minimising the amount of time wasted on paperwork.

To start with, you can head over to our contact form and fill in your details.

We will need a copy of a few of your documents, to complete your rental agreement, so make sure that you are able to supply us with a valid driver’s license, your proof of residence, a deposit on your preferred vehicle, and you will have to let us know how you will be paying. If you are paying via credit or debit card, we will need the relevant details.

Another way you can hire a bakkie or trailer, is by requesting a quote and then having a chat with one of our consultants who will be able to answer all of your questions.

Transporting your things from A to B has never been this easy

Van hire in South Africa is one of the most commonly sought-after methods for transporting goods and it is especially useful for those who don’t have the need for a permanent vehicle but occasionally have to move heavy items that just won’t fit neatly in a trailer.

The Yellow Rental Company has been at the forefront of reliable and affordable van rentals in South Africa for a number of years, and with branches across the country, our services are easy to use and accessible to all who need it. You can also rent a bakkie or book a trailer with us.

With our extensive network of nationwide branches, organising your hire can be a lot quicker and easier than you’d imagine. Once the ball is rolling, you can be rest assured that much stress will be taken off of your shoulders. Our expert team has all of the knowledge and tools needed to guide you through the booking process when you hire a van.

Our van hire is designed to suit the needs of both businesses and individuals who require it, and whether you are looking for a short term or long term solution, we can assist you in finding the best option for your unique needs.

Van hire is generally something that growing companies seek out, especially when they don’t yet need to have a van full time. Even if the hiring is a long term arrangement, it should be seen as an investment rather than a monthly expense that ends up eating your budget. Not only are you getting access to a superb moving tool but you also never have to worry about paying out any extras.

Currently, we have branches from which you can hire a van in Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Bloemfontein.

Your van hire can be organised from one of our branches or it can be done electronically via our website or over the phone. We will assist you in finding the best prices and we can help you find the ideal van for your unique needs.


Not convinced that van hire is what you need?

The many options out there, for those who are looking for a way to move around their furniture, products, holiday luggage or anything else that needs moving, can make selecting the ideal option for your specific hiring needs a lot more complicated than it needs to be.

The options at your disposal can also make you over think things, and end up paying out more than you’d necessarily need to, or perhaps end up with something that does not necessarily suit your needs.

If you happen to still be on the fence about what it is that you need, if your budget will match with the hire you are considering, or perhaps if you are looking for something a little more customised to your needs, these are just a handful of the reasons why van hire could be suitable for you.


Price matters, especially when you are thinking about using van hire as a long term strategy for moving your items around. Not only is once-off hiring an affordable option, but when hiring from a company like ours, we can work out a solution that will suit you.

When it comes to price, there are other ways that you can save. Hiring means you will never have to worry about the ongoing maintenance that the van will need, or other expenses that might be incurred when or if the van should unexpectedly break down or have other issues.

Increase the Fleet

For those companies just starting out, buying a massive fleet right from the get go is not always financially possible. Hiring becomes the next best option for companies faced with this predicament. Van hire can be organised in a variety of different ways, some of which include long term options that end up working out a lot cheaper than buying.

Van hire allows the fleet to be increased without the hassle of having to worry about maintenance or other costs which are involved with owning the vehicles.

Increasing your fleet is also going to give you the opportunity to shake things up a bit, by occasionally hiring a different kind of van, until you have found the ones that best suit your needs. This also helps in future, when you perhaps want to buy a van.

Easy to use

Not only is organising a van rental easy, but the vans themselves are generally easy to pack and easy to drive. The option of hiring is ideal for novices as well as those who are well experienced in using this option. Vans are designed to contain quite a lot of heavy things, and they don’t come with the many risks associated with trailer hire. Van hire will also require less skills and experience when compared to trailer hire.

With a hired van, you will be given the freedom to move at your own pace and basically have full control over how you use your van.

How to hire your van from The Yellow Rental Company

To ensure that our clients enjoy the very best service and are quickly sorted out with the hire that they need, we’ve created our hiring process to be as quick and painless as possible. With a few clicks or calls, and the exchange of the necessary documents, we will have you on your way.

The best place to start the hiring process will be to fill out our contact form. Once you’ve done that, we will need your documents, which include a complete rental agreement, proof of residence, a deposit on the rental van you are eyeing, and then we will need to know how you intend to pay for your van. Should you be paying with a debit or credit card, we will need the details.

Your other option, if you’d like to talk to a consultant, is to give us a call. One of our consultants will give you all the information you require and together you can formalise your rental agreement, the documents and payment.

Hiring a trailer is a short term solution for any travel storage problem. Trailers are easy to hire and easy to use, even more so if you have some experience and know what you are doing.

At The Yellow Rental Company, we prioritise trailer rentals while also offering bakkie rentals and van hiring services.

Our trailers are of the highest quality and we work hard to make sure that the trailers we hire out are kept well-maintained and ready to go. We are in the business of keeping our clients on the move, whether that means hiring out a vehicle or a trailer to transport whatever it is that our clients are moving.

Trailer hire is the perfect option for both big and small companies, as well as the individual. With a variety of options available, all at affordable prices, you don’t have to stretch your budget to accommodate this necessity.

When hiring a trailer for work purposes, you will be making an investment in your business as hiring has many benefits. And since this option is quite readily available to you, one quick call or online enquiry can take the stress out of organising your hire.

The Yellow Rental Company has branches spread out across the country, giving more people access to our exceptional products. And since we have a wide collection of trailers for hire, you won’t have to look around for too long before you find the trailer that matches your needs.


Currently, we offer trailers for hire in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

Why is hiring a trailer better than buying one?

For many companies, and individuals alike, hiring a trailer is better than buying one simply because it is the more cost-effective option. For those who don’t need a trailer for every day or even every week use, hiring is the preferred option. And for those who need a long term solution, hiring can also have its pricing benefits.

Trailer hiring is also a more flexible option when compared to making that pricey down payment on a new trailer, and your hire can be customised according to your needs.

Customised hiring contracts for specific trailers can make it easy for budgets and calendars to be planned.

Apart from saving money, these are the other reasons why hiring is better than buying.

You have access to more than one trailer

If today you need a small closed trailer, but tomorrow your needs change and you find that a bigger, open trailer is more suitable, when hiring, you will be able to access all kinds of trailers. If you compare this to buying a trailer, which naturally means you will only have the one type, you will find that hiring is more flexible.

You have a custom contract

Trailers can be rented as they are needed. If you only need the trailer for a day then you will only need to pay for a day, while if you need it for a longer period of time, you can extend your contract. This will give you more control over your budget.

You don’t have to worry about maintenance

Buying a trailer means paying out for more than just the initial payment. You will also be paying out, ever so often for the maintenance of the trailer. You will also be periodically without your trailer as you do maintenance and/or pay for someone else to do it for you.

By hiring your trailer, maintenance will no longer be your concern. Instead, you can be rest assured knowing that the trailer has been maintained on your behalf, before you hire it.

You will have access to the most modern trailers

Much like the flexibility benefit, with this benefit you will always be hiring one of the most modern trailers the market has to offer. This is beneficial because as trailers are manufactured, certain features evolve. This makes them easier to tow, more stable, and perhaps even have more carrying capacity.

How to hire one of our trailers

To make hiring a trailer quick and easy, we have minimised the paper work and maximised the processing time, to ensure that you are quickly sorted out and ready to tow.

The easiest way to hire a trailer is to complete our contact form, which can be found on our website. You will need to supply us with a copy of your driver’s license (please make sure that you are in possession of a license that will give you legal permission to tow a trailer), proof of residence, a deposit on the trailer you require, and your method of payment, particularly if you will be paying via debit or credit card.

You can also give us a call, and have one of our consultants assist you with the rental.

Car rental in South Africa is one of the largest conveniences instead of having to use public transport either when you do not own a vehicle, or when you cannot use your own vehicle. Car Rental is especially useful when you fly between cities and are required to travel during this time.

  • If you live in a large city that does not have decent public transport and you need to travel for business, you can consider car rental on a weekly or monthly basis as needed.
  • If you do not have your own vehicle and you would like to go on a road trip on vacation, you can consider car rental instead of relying on public transport. This provides you with the flexibility of moving around at your holiday destination.

How to Hire a Car from Us

Before you hire a car from any agency, there are some considerations namely:

  • Make sure that the car rental agency has the necessary paperwork such as your driver’s license, identification book, and any additional documentation.
  • Make sure that you inspect the exterior and the interior of the car that you are renting to ensure that it is in good condition. Also ensure that any existing cosmetic damage to the vehicle such as scrapes, dents, and scratches are noted so that it does not come from your security deposit when the vehicle is returned. Ideally, your rental car should not be damaged, and you should not accept a damaged car.
  • Before you take your rental car on the road, make sure that you are familiar with the car. Every vehicle is different, and you should take your time adjusting the seat, mirrors, and all other components to ensure that you can operate the vehicle safely and comfortably.
  • Always make sure that you have a travel plan, depending on whether you are renting a car for business or leisure.
  • Always make sure of the type of fuel that your rental car uses and always return the vehicle with a full tank.
  • Make sure that the rental car is returned on or before your rental period ends.
  • Make sure that the damage waiver is included and that you understand the percentage of damages you are liable for, only if there are damages.
