SIXT Vans in Edinburgh

SIXT Vans in Edinburgh

  • Delivery Vans – These are great vans for simply cargo loads, perhaps a small amount of furniture or crates of food and drink. We offer a VW Cady or similar, an excellent moving van with great handling on the road.  
  • Regular Vans – For bigger moves with still enough compact size for easier handling in tighter roads we offer this class. With more storage space in the back this is better for longer haul journeys, we can offer a Ford Transit 280 Panel or similar. 
  • Small Trucks – SIXT offers the Ford Transit 350 Panel or similar. The real difference beside more engine power and higher payload is the extended roof at the back making it perfect for taller items.  
  • Medium Size Trucks – With vans such as the VW Crafter 35 L or similar you can expect a robust and powerful vehicle for transporting heavy loads. The handling is excellent on these vans making for a very comfortable journey. 
  • Medium Size Trucks (Box Vans) - These are our largest in the fleet with a dedicated cargo hold to create the most space and take the heaviest payloads. We offer the Ford Transit Luton or similar, perfect for moving houses.
