Van Size Guide

Vans, like the jobs you want them for, come in many different types and sizes. Whether it's a small van to pick up some DIY equipment or a Luton removal van with tail-lift for moving house, we have the right size van for your needs.

Use our van size comparison guide below to help you choose the best size van to rent for your job.

Small Van

Total seats: 2
Load space: 2.3-3.3m3
A small van is the perfect hire when you have a small load to move. Ideal as a medium-term rental for trades people or couriers doing deliveries, and equally useful for anyone who has to collect or drop off an appliance such as a washing machine or dishwasher.

Medium Van

Total seats: 3
Load space: 5-6.5m3
A medium van is a good choice if you want to move a 2-seater sofa or the contents of a small room, so ideal for moving a student to/from uni in a day. You'll easily fit a bed and mattress as well as a desk and chair, a couple of large suitcases and a few boxes. 

Large Van

Total seats: 3
Load space: up to 11.3m3
A large size van is suitable for moving a 1-bed flat or bedsit. It will fit a small sofa and armchair, bookshelves, a small dining table and two chairs, a double bed and mattress, and a selection of suitcases and boxes, in one go.

Extra Large Van

Total seats: 3
Load space: up to 14m3
The extra large van will handle moving a 2-bed flat or small house. It will comfortably fit a couple of sofas, two double beds (disassembled) and mattresses, bookshelves, a dining table and 4 chairs, a fridge-freezer and assorted luggage.

Luton Van

Total seats: 3
Load space: up to 19m3
Payload: up to 1,000kg
The Luton van's long wheelbase (LWB) and large box-shaped load area makes it easy to stack boxes and will take the contents of a 2/3-bed flat or house. The Luton doesn't need a special licence so is ideal for people managing their house move themselves.

Luton Lift Van

Total seats: 3
Load space: up to 19m3
Payload: up to 1,000kg
The Luton with tail-lift is the workhorse of removal vans. It has all the qualities of the standard Luton box van, but with a tail-lift, making it perfect for moving heavy items of furniture without hurting your back.
