What are they ideal for?

Practical information on utility truck rental
To rent a utility truck with tailboard, you have to have held a ‘B’ driving licence for a minimum of 5 years.
When you rent a utility truck with tailboard for the first time, we invite you to note these points before setting off:
Remember that this type of commercial vehicle is not equipped with an internal rear-view mirror. So, take a moment to adjust the position of the external wing mirrors before starting the engine. Do not hesitate to ask for assistance from the Rent A Car agent accompanying you to your vehicle.
Prior to your return, check that the appearance of both the vehicle and the tailboard are in the same condition as they were on your departure.
It’s a good idea to make a note of the mileage of the vehicle as well as the quantity of fuel in the tank, prior to starting out.
