Group F – Low Loader Luton Van Hire

Group F – Low Loader Luton Van Hire

Low Loader Luton vans are the vans that have a chassis with a ‘box’ on. ‘Luton’ refers to the style of the box. Making vans in this way maximises the load space available for the size of van. So a Low Loader Luton van has an enclosed cabin that has three seats and are normally quite comfortable. The box is normally about 3.7m long, 2m wide and 2m high, giving a load area of 15m, or nearly a third more than a long wheel base van. The extra width achieved is also very useful, particularly if you are transporting a large item. The allowed weight is about 1.5kg, about the same as a LWB van. Because the box is on a chassis, the load floor is quite a bit higher than a normal van. To overcome this Luton vans come with an electronic tail lift. Simply press a button to lower the tail, stack it with your goods and then press a button to lift them up to the load floor. This feature is very appealing for many customers who have a lot of things to move, especially if you are moving house and have lots of bulky furniture.

Luton vans are tricky to drive if you are not used to them and you have to check for any height restrictions on the roads, such as when you go under a low bridge. Luton vans do not have rear view mirrors so you must be more reliant on your wing mirrors when reversing, especially as you also have a tail lift protruding at the back of the vehicle. In some instances it is recommended to have someone to guide you when going backwards.

At weekends, especially at the end of a month, Low Loader Luton vans become in short supply as that is when lots of people move homes, so we would advise to book early.
