Find a van suitable for every need

  • Ford Transit Custom/Vauxhall Vivaro – Small, compact but large enough to get a small amount of furniture or a good amount of stacked goods or other such items. Easy for any driver to drive themselves.
  • Volkswagen Crafter – Still compact but good for enterprises or perhaps moving a modest amount of cargo. It has a more space with a higher roof so bigger items are fitted with ease. 
  • Ford Transit Luton – A large van hire in London equipped with luton box and tail lift. If you’re doing a big move and plan to manoeuvre city streets this could be for you. Perfect for supply companies or moving flats.
