Who Wants Ice Cream?

Our ice cream van hires evoke a sense of nostalgia and joy with their unmistakeable appearance At Promohire we have a range of ice cream van rental options, it all depends on what you want to use the vehicle for!  

Our modern ice cream vans are typically used for campaigns where high volume service is required – incredibly the Mr Whippy vans can serve 1,000 ice creams per hour! We provide soft scoop and traditional Mr Whippy ice cream (ask us about custom flavours!) as well as branded tubs, cones and spoons.  

Don’t want to serve ice cream? No problem! Our vintage vans have served up beauty products and hot foods for brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, Revlon, Greggs and Warburtons.
