The Luton is the largest type of van you are permitted to drive with a standard UK driving license, and luckily, it's about as big as you will need for both domestic and commercial removals. With engine sizes of 2.2 litre and 2.2 TDCi, Lutons can handle payloads of between 789 kg and 1,000 kg. This can include large pieces of furniture, such as desks and wardrobes, domestic appliances such as an American-style fridge, office equipment and much more. There are no wheel arches taking up valuable space in the rear of a Luton, so they are great for stacking boxes. You can also make use of the storage space above the cabin, which is ideal for bags of clothes, bedding or other lightweight items. Don’t worry about not having driven anything as large before; Lutons drive like a normal car and have the usual controls of accelerator, clutch and gears. With two large wing mirrors, you can easily see what is behind you, although it is good to have a companion on hand for backing up and parking. Hiring a Luton van rather than buying one is a decision many small firms make – particularly new start-ups. You don’t have to reduce your working capital by buying a new van, or worry about the depreciation once you drive it off the forecourt; servicing and maintenance won't cost you anything, and in longer term contracts, the expense of hiring is tax deductible.
A Luton is an iconic British van with lots of room inside, and Enterprise knows that the service they offer customers would be incomplete if they didn’t provide Luton van hire. Perhaps you are moving house and want to avoid the expense of hiring a professional removal company. A Luton might not be able to take your full house contents in one go, but if you hire it over a weekend and make several trips, you will save money. Ask some friends to come and help you, and make the removal at your leisure, without thinking about how much your removal bill is increasing each hour. Because a Luton can take large pieces of furniture, you don’t need to start dismantling things, only to have to put them back together later. It isn’t just house moves – smaller jobs, such as moving junior to university or relocating elderly parents to smaller or sheltered accommodation can be completed with ease when you have a Luton van on hand. For office removal, desks, cabinets and drawers stack easily in a Luton, along with crates containing stationery or personal items. Enterprise Rent-A-Car will do you a great deal on a Luton, whether you hire it for a day, a week or a month.
