Van Help Hints

Picking a Van can be a difficult task. You wouldn’t want to deteriorating your things into a van that is to small, nor would you want to waste extra money hiring an excessively large one. Take a look at the hints below to have an idea about what Van is the right choice for your move.

Medium Wheel Base Van (MWB):

The Medium Wheel Base Van is capable of containing anywhere up to 30 medium-sized boxes; roughly enough to fill a shed. If you want to include big pieces of furniture you’ll have to subtract the implied space from the number of boxes. So, if you want to include a washing machine, that would be about 5 less boxes’ worth of space. 30-5 is 25, so you’ll get roughly 25 medium boxes in alongside your washing machine.

 

Long Wheel Base Van (LWB):

If you’re somewhere between transporting a few belongings and a full-on move, the LWB could be right for you. Often favoured by people leaving a studio flat or cleaning out furniture from a garage, our LWB is capable of simultaneously transporting plenty of boxes as well as larger household items. A typical LWB job could contain 20 medium-sized boxes, a fridge-freezer, microwave, 2-seater sofa, double bed, a set of cabinets/drawers and a large TV. Perfect for singletons or couples moving from a fairly compact space.

 

 

 

Luton Van (LWB) with tail lift:

If an LWB transit isn’t quite enough then the 3.5 Tonne Luton van could be a safer option. Ideal for those with a fairly large load to move, the vehicle is capable of transporting 20-25 medium-sized boxes alongside a washing machine, fridge-freezer, microwave, 2-seater sofa, up to 2 armchairs, double bed, a set of cabinets/drawers, large TV, and dining table complete with 6 chairs. Many 1 and 2 bedroom flat owners (and sometimes house owners) opt for our LWB Luton.
