Van Hire Dimensions and Help

When hiring a van many people are not quite sure which size or type of vehicle they require. To help we’ve put together a van guide that shows approximate van dimensions for height, length and width which should provide a guideline when deciding on what you need. In addition we have also provided typical load weight, fuel consumption and number of seats.

We have quite a few offers available for van hire such as no deposit and hiring with a debit card.

Length 4.0m
Load Weight 1200-1600kg
Av Fuel consumption 21mpg
Seats 3 (including driver)
Example Model Ford Transit LWB, LDV Maxus LWB, Renault Master LWB (or similar)
Notes – Luton Vans are often used for house removals or moves. In the Luton van the load area is not impeded by wheel arches so the full area is available for the load. Some Lutons come with a tail lift to ease loading the vehicle. As the Luton is so far off the floor some drivers prefer to use either a tail lift or some form of load assist for non tail lift vehicles.

Please remember these dimensions and figures are for guideline purposes and should only be used as such. It’s important to note that the distance between the wheel arches in the load area means a reduced width in this area. Usually this is under half of a meter. For exact details we suggest confirming with the rental supplier before using the vehicle.
