Choosing the Right Van

March 13, 2020

Here at Sky Van Hire, we have a variety of vans available for hire and know first-hand the importance of tailoring the van you choose to the job it’s needed for.  With various vans available to hire, we discuss the considerations you need to take into account when choosing the right vehicle for the job.

Size and Efficiency

If you’re moving one large item, do you need a long wheel base van or a Luton Body van? Hiring a van of the right size is much more efficient and means you won’t be paying for the extra space you aren’t using.  For more on van sizes, take a look at this post.


If you’re visiting customers with your van, the appearance of the vehicle can go a long way in securing repeat business or losing it.  First impressions count, so when choosing your vehicle, make sure it’s the right size for the job and represents your high-quality service.


Just because you or your business requires a small van one week, does not mean that you won’t require a large van the next.  If your business has a variety of services then you need to make sure the rental company can offer you flexibility with different types of van hire as and when you need it.  Some questions you may want to ask include: will I need a roof rack? What size van would be best? How long will I need the van for?  


If you need to go to Europe then you will need to make sure you are offered the right insurance cover.  It is also important to consider whether the rental company offers breakdown cover should the worst happen.
