Blandford Car & Van Hire

Sorry, this branch has now closed...

We want to let you know that the Blandford Branch will not be re-opening having closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  We are sorry, we know that this branch has been convenient to you.

This has been a very difficult decision to make, like many businesses we have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic and the changes in demand from our business and retail clients.  The way we conduct business has changed considerably and for some of our smaller locations it is no longer possible to offer the level of service and vehicle diversity we pride ourselves upon, with the level of local demand.

This means that we are now able to offer our services from POOLE or SALISBURY.

Retail clients can reserve and collect a vehicle from any of these locations, book online now or call our reservation centre 0800 980 9966.  Business Users, why not try our delivery and collection service, available for a small additional cost, please call our business centre on 01202 725950 to discuss your requirements, contact your usual representative or alternatively vehicles are available from Dorchester, Poole or Salisbury.

Whether you are looking for a new vehicle solution, making a new reservation or making changes to your existing hire bookings or agreement we remain ready to help.

Blandford Forum was a major market town during the later medieval period. This was principally due to the fact that both the main road from Salisbury to Dorchester and that from Poole to Shaftesbury crossed the River Stour at this point, explaining, at least in part, the derivation of the name.

In 1605 the town became a borough with its own mayor and burgesses. It was one of the polling places for county elections, giving it an added significance. Until 1836, the Bishop of Bristol’s registry for the archdeaconry of Dorset was also maintained in Blandford.

In the early 18th century, fire decimated much of the town. The only earlier buildings remaining today are two 17th century buildings: The Old House in The Close, and the Ryves Almshouses on Salisbury Street. The town was rebuilt following the second fire in 1731 and is now a wonderful example of Georgian architecture. Hiring a car is one of the most convenient and affordable ways of exploring Blandford and North Dorset. The Blandford Branch of U-Drive Car and Van Hire is located in Blandford Heights Industrial Estate in the north east of the town just off the A350.
