Do I Need To Hire A Compact Van?

Compact van - Citroen Nemo or similar

Compact vans have become increasingly popular in recent years, forming a new class of van that's smaller than a standard small van. On the outside, these compact models are no bigger than a small car. This makes them ideal for city use and very cheap to run.

However, it's a different story inside. These compact vans have a surprisingly big load space, and are also easy to drive and cheap to run.

Most compact van models have a load compartment that's about 1.5m long, 1.4m wide, and around 1.2m high. A payload of 500-600kg is typical, meaning that a wide range of goods can be safely loaded without exceeding the weight limit. These really are big little vans!

The main models currently on the market are:

  • Ford Transit Courier
  • Citroen Nemo
  • Fiat Fiorino
