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. Read the instructions below carefully before renting the van. 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 annual membership is valid through 1.9.-31.8.

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.

The keys can be picked up from our Service Offices: city centre van keys are picked up from city centre Service Office and Hervanta van keys from Hervanta Service Office. Keys can be collected during the opening hours. You can check our opening hours and exceptions on our website. For weekend bookings the keys are collected on Friday. If you have something to ask about the key collection, please contact TREYs Office Secretary Helky before your booking, contact info is on the Contact info -page.

Both of the vans are booked through online reservation calendar. Please check, that you have booked the van from the location that you want it from. Both vans are in use for all our members, regardless of the campus you mainly study on. Please note, that during turns of the month (±2 days) maximum time for reservation is 6 hours (2 time blocks).

Cancelling or moving your reservation in reservation calendar is possible until 48 hours before the beginning of reservation. During the last 48 hours before the reservation it is prohibited and that will cost 12 €.

The reservation calendar can be found on the University’s page here.
