Do I Need To Hire A Small Van?

Small vans are hugely popular with a wide range of users - from couriers to florists to photographers.

Small van - Ford Transit Connect or similar

They offer a conveniently-large load space in a vehicle no bigger than a medium-sized car. Kitchen appliances like cookers or washing machines fit easily, as do most kind of removal packing boxes.

On top of that you get great fuel economy (40 - 50mpg), low running costs and better load security than you would in an estate car - since everything is hidden.

Small vans like these are just like cars to drive, making them very user-friendly, too.

Some of the most popular small vans on the market are:

  • Ford Transit Connect
  • Volkswagen Caddy
  • Vauxhall Combo
  • Renault Kangoo
  • Citroen Berlingo
  • Peugeot Partner

These usually have a payload of 600kg - 800kg and are all popular choices with van hire companies.
