What Size Van do I Need to Hire?

Small Vans

Suitable for moving boxes and household items like washing machines and cookers and can fit two people in too. Examples are: Ford Transit Connect, Vauxhall Combo.

Medium Panel Vans

Built in a variety of lengths from short wheel base to extra long wheel base. You can fit items of furniture such as beds and sofas in as well as boxes and kitchen appliances. Examples are Ford Transit and Mercedes Sprinter.

Luton Vans

Suitable for house moves. As the back of the van is quite high off the ground, if you have heavy items to load, it is a good idea to hire a Luton van with a tail-lift.

For more in depth details about exact payload figures and dimensions also see our online guide: Van Sizes and Payloads. We have two depots: Peterborough Van Hire and Cambridge Van Hire.
