The student union, together with Tampereen Teekkarien Moottorikerho, rents two vans with an inexpensive user fee for the TREY members to use during moves, collecting goods or other needs. There is one van available in city centre and one in Hervanta. Read the instructions below carefully before renting the van.
Read section “Van keys” carefully for the instructions on key distribution.
Only members of TREY (the student union membership fee must be paid, and the renter must have a category B driver’s license or a foreign driver’s license that has been approved by the Finnish police) have the right to rent and drive the van. The booker is the driver of the van and no one else is allowed to drive it during the booking. The recipient of the keys is responsible for all misconduct and damage caused to the vehicle and possible third parties. A van is more difficult to drive than a passenger car, so steady driving skills are recommended for the driver.

- Make a booking on the reservation calendar. Please note, that during turns of the month (±2 days) maximum time for reservation is 6 hours.
