About Us

Who we are & a bit of our history

Jafvans was founded in 1959 by late John Arthur Fisher (his initials JAF make up the name!). It all started at his own house in Northolt with his own Ford Prefect. In the early 1970s, as the business progressed, the company moved to its current location at 400 Northolt Road, South Harrow. The property was a Newsagent with a big garden at the back.

In 1997, Mr Fisher decided to retire and company was taken over by Stephen Blake, who had worked for the company since 1973. Since the takeover, the company has grown and currently has over 130 vehicles of various makes and models and the company is constantly trying to improve to the highest standards.

In May 2006, Jafvans opened another site at the corner of Bridge Street and High Street in Pinner. Another location at Breakspear Road in Ruislip was opened in November of 2009. Since then, Jafvans has become a household name in most towns in London Boroughs of Harrow and Hillingdon.

Our Vision & Philosophy

Since 1997, Jafvans has been a family business in the truest sense, since many of the staff are within the Blake family circle. As a commited Christian family, they believe in bringing fairness and integrity to all parts of the business. Our mission is to provide local communities with an excellent and affordable car and van rental that caters for anyone's need. In addition to that, our removals service aims to continue to provide an excellent and much cheaper alternative to traditional removal companies.

What we offer

We offer a great range of car rentals: from small economy cars to large family size, from small four door compact car to large hatchback with plenty of boot space. Most cars are available in both manual and automatic. In our people carriers rental range we have seven seaters with automatic transmission and nine seaters with manual one. For larger groups, we can offer minibus rentals of 12 and 17 seaters.

Our van rental range is one we are really proud of: small panel vans, Transit panel vans in short wheel base (SWB), long wheel base (LWB) and jumbo size, open back Tipper Transits, Luton box vans with tail lifts and 7.5ton Box van with tail lift.

Our removal service simply offers a Luton box van with working driver that will help you move your items. We can also provide a van with two working men or even for slightly bigger moves, two vans with two working men.
