Which Size Van Should I Choose?

July 3, 2018

Vans come in all shapes and sizes, but before you go ahead and hire or purchase your own van, it will be necessary to determine the type of van you require.

Sky Van Hire discusses the various kinds of van available and the things you should consider before you invest.

Payload and Dimensions

Before making your decision, you will need to know the payload of the van – this is how much weight the vehicle has been designed to carry safely and legally. Additionally, you will need to know the dimensions of the vehicle, ensuring that the items you need to put in the van will fit.

Small Van and Short Wheel Based Van

Our small vans have seats for two passengers and a side loading door, making them ideal to fit small items of furniture, tools, equipment, parcels and much more. Small vans are ideal for those that will only be transporting minimal goods, as well as those that do a lot of inner city driving.

Long Wheel Based Van

Long wheel based vans are larger in size than short wheel based vans and, consequently, are suitable for transporting large items of furniture, transporting items to a recycling centre or large pieces of equipment.

Our long wheel based vans, have an easy access sliding side door to make loading and unloading easy. These vans also have room for three passengers.

Luton Body Van – With Tail Lift

The Luton Body Van is the most spacious of all the vans listed above, and is consequently ideal for those that are moving large quantities, such as when moving home. These vans are also ideal for moving heavy items, as you can make us of the tail lift to make loading and unloading easier. A Luton Body van can fit up to three pallets.
