Take the A5 westbound heading towards Telford. After about half a mile, on your left you will pass a lay-by followed by a speed camera (you have been warned!). The entrance to the hire base is also on the left, immediately after the speed camera road markings. If you miss it, simply continue down the road to the roundabout, go right around and approach the hire base from the opposite direction.

Wolverhampton and Stafford Main Line Railway stations
Both of these stations have taxi ranks.

The nearest railway stations are Wolverhampton (coming from the South) or Stafford (coming from the North). The Hire base is about 8 miles from them both.

The village of Penkridge has a local branch line rail station with infrequent connections from either Wolverhampton or Stafford, but there is no taxi rank as such, although there is a taxi service in the village centre. The base is some 3 miles from Penkridge.
