Truck & Van Rental in St Austell, Cornwall & Plymouth

Established in 1994, by Mark Kerby and Richard Jacobs, Driveline has evolved into a comprehensive single-point solution provider. Originally a commercial driver hire agency, we have expanded our portfolio of services.

Driveline GB Ltd offers van and truck rental in St Austell, Truro, Newquay, Plymouth and the surrounding areas. Driver hire is available throughout the south west, along with LGV and B&E driver training, as part of our range of commercial vehicle services.

As a stand-alone company, we offer an impartial service to our client base, which now consists of PLCs, Blue Chips and a great number of local independent operators.

The number of vehicles in our fleet has increased with demand and now stands at around 180. Many customers benefit from the superior service from our rental, workshop and bodyshop, while our training department has provided successful training to both individuals and local operators, here and at the customers' own site.
