Considering moving house yourself?
How about a 3.5 Ton Luton Van?
This is a very popular van size for many reasons, is easy to drive even with a basic car license!
It’s a “light vehicle” with a GVM of 3500kg so it can be be driven on a car license. Of course, its loading capacity is not as much as a removal van that a removal company would use, so this may require few more extra runs between old and new houses. A Luton van has an approximate internal volume of 600 cubic feet.
Working out what vehicle is best for for your furniture:
Furniture has a cubic feet size value. For example a standard box is 3 cubic feet and a fridge freezer is approx 30 cubic feet. So a 3 cubic feet box would easily fit in to a luton van about 200 times. Of course you won’t have 20 fridge freezers, but you should be able to use the cubic feet value of a box and the fridge freezer to compare your furniture’s cubic capacity in total.
The Luton van offers you an easy drive with handling similar to a car with the power of a diesel engine. Perfect for all your transport needs, WW’s vans are designed to carry large loads, while you travel in comfort up front.
The Luton van originates from Luton in Bedfordshire, which is home to the Bedford heavy commercial vehicle plant that produced the popular Bedford model. The Luton body incorporates an box-shaped body that goes over the cab.
The Luton body was designed to accommodate high volumes of low density loads. Early Luton vans used the Bedford chassis.
Modern Luton Vans
Modern day Luton vans such as the Ford Transit and larger vehicles used by removal companies have kept the basic shape of the Luton van, though the body is now streamlined to minimise wind resistance. The Luton is occasionally hinged especially in vehicles with tilting cabs. The Ford Transit is one of the most common types of Luton van with a load length of 1.65 metres.
What are the main benefits of hiring one of your Luton vans?
Luton vans offer many options for vehicle hire and there are benefits associated with hiring a Luton van. Unless you will be using your Luton van for anything else, it makes better economic sense to simply hire one instead of buying it outright. This can also apply to smaller businesses as well as for home use.
Luton vans are very commonly used in home and office removals. The vans have large enough footprints for furniture, home and office appliances together with boxes with ease. The vans ample space also ensures that you don’t have to dismantle most of your furniture when moving, except for large pieces.
Luton vans have excellent flexibility that makes them great for hire and tail lifts that can help you lift heavy pieces of furniture including bulky wardrobes and sofas.
For business use
For businesses looking to hire vehicles for extended use, hiring a Luton van is a very economical choice. Many small businesses dont have the budget to purchase a vehicle upfront when their cash flow is still low. Hiring a van for long term corporate use frees you from the hassle of hiring one every time you need to make those incessant business trips. It’s usually cheaper to hire over a longer period since the cost is reduced over the period of hire.
