HUMVEE event hire & special occasions

My military HUMVEE collection can be hired for events or special occasions. The rarity, the power, carrying capacity and bad ass appearance of the HUMVEE generates a lot of public interest when on the road.

The HUMVEE has wide doors and drop-down tail gate for easy access. Some variants have additional troop benches allowing transportation of driver and up to 11 passengers.

Special Occasions:

  • Wedding (transporting the groom and party or bride and party)
  • Stag parties
  • Fresher parties
  • Promos
  • First day at school
  • Birthday parties (kids and adults)

Event Transportation:

The HUMVEE’s strong off-road capability and carrying capacity makes it ideal for transporting visitors and clients at outdoor events over rough terrain.

Event Rides:

I can be hired to provide either rides or driving experiences at outdoor events, with experienced instructors.

Develpoment of the HUMVEE

In December 2004, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld came under criticism from U.S. troops and their families for not providing better-equipped HMMWVs.

Rumsfeld pointed out that, prior to the war, armor kits were produced only in small numbers per year. As the role of American forces in Iraq changed from fighting the Iraqi Army to suppressing the guerrilla insurgency, more armor kits were being manufactured, though perhaps not as fast as production facilities were capable. Even more advanced kits were also being developed.

While these kits are much more effective against all types of attacks, they weigh from 1,500 to 2,200 lb (680 to 1,000 kg) and have some of the same drawbacks as the improvised armor.

Unlike similar-size civilian cargo and tow trucks, which typically have dual rear wheels to reduce sway, the HMMWV has single rear wheels due to its independent rear suspension coupled with the body design.

Most up-armored HMMWVs hold up well against lateral attacks, when the blast is distributed in all different directions, but offers little protection from a mine blast below the truck, such as buried improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and land mines. Explosively formed penetrators (EFPs) can also defeat the armor kits, causing casualties.
