Explaining Moving Van Sizes in "Meet The Fleet"

When considering hiring our vans and movers, you won't need to worry about specifying the van size you need. If you give us a reasonably accurate inventory of the amount of gear you have, especially any large or cumbersome furniture, we'll be more than happy to provide a price for your move. You will automatically be assigned one of our vans, or if necessary multiple vans, depending on the size of your move, along with a choice of how many movers you will need.

Our fleet consists of Luton Vans, Extra Large Vans, and Long Wheel Mercedes Transit Vans. These removal vehicles are roomy and well-equipped to handle store collections, student moves, home moves, and business removals because they can each carry up to 3.5 tonnes of payload. So take advantage and hire a van in York with the knowledge that our man and van service will move your home across the UK without the risk of a breakdown thanks to our commitment to maintaining our removal hire Sprinter vans

How many moving vans will I require?

The size of your home will ultimately determine the answer, but the typical job only calls for one van. This is due to:

The vans are initially roomy. They have a volume that ranges from 10.5 to 22m3 and can move a lot of cargo in a single trip, especially if it has been packed well.

Even if a removal requires more space than a single van can hold, splitting the job into two legs will cost less than hiring a second van and driver.

What Situations Might Require Two or More Vans?

Longer distance moves typically require more than one van. Instead of making separate trips to and from the old house, both vans can arrive at the new house at once. If so, you can reserve multiple vans, and we'll show up in a convoy.

When residents have different destinations, such as when students move out after exams or couples separate, more than one van may be required. Hiring two smaller vans that can go to different houses after everything is loaded is more practical in this situation.
