Almost everyone can recognise a Luton van; a mainstay on Britain’s roads for many years. You only have to stand by a main road for a few minutes and several will pass you. It’s their versatility as a removal/medium range haulage vehicle that makes Luton vans so popular, and if you are worried about heavy lifting, why not look at Luton van tail-lift rental from Enterprise Rent-A-Car. A Luton is typically 3.5 tonnes and has a 2.2 litre engine, a minimum haulage capacity of 800 kg, and a length of 6.7 metres. Basically, a Luton is a van cab and chassis, with a large box on the back that extends over the cab to provide additional storage space – this space is sometimes referred to as a kick. Cabs are comfortable and a big windscreen provides a great view of the road ahead, while large wing mirrors allow drivers to see easily behind them, though it is always an advantage to have a passenger who can guide you when backing up. A Luton is the largest van you are allowed to drive on a standard UK driving licence, which is another reason that they remain popular for domestic and commercial customers alike.
A Luton van equipped with a tail-lift takes a lot of the hard work out of that house move, and means you can complete it with less help than you might otherwise need. There really is no need to be straining to get large wardrobes or heavy domestic appliances into the van – and what about that overweight upright piano? A tail-lift will make life much easier. You might be renovating your home rather than moving, and a Luton with a tail-lift comes into its own when you are collecting building materials, flags, or weighty boxes of ceramic tiles, for example. If you have just set up your light haulage business, you might prefer to hire a Luton rather than take out a large loan to buy one outright. Enterprise will hire you a Luton van for a day, a week or longer. If you are looking for long-term hire, ask about Flex-E-Rent. Whatever period you chose to hire your van over, Enterprise will do you a very competitive deal that you will find very difficult to better. That includes their great back-up service and 24/7 roadside assistance, should you need it.
