What size van do I need to hire?

Vans are versatile vehicles that can be used for a variety of tasks, from transporting goods to camping trips. However, choosing the right size van for your needs can be a bit of a complicated job, especially if you’ve never driven a van before! Here at Intack Self Drive we’ve got a variety of vans for you can choose to rent through our Daily hire and Flexi hire services, so we’ve put together a quick guide explaining the different types of vans we can offer you, and the jobs they’re best suited to.

Small vans

Small vans are the most compact type of van we have available here at Intack Self Drive. They’re suitable for city driving and can navigate narrow streets and tight parking spaces. Our small vans are ideal for small businesses that need to transport small items, such as flowers or baked goods, and they’re typically used by tradespeople and other professionals for small jobs, but they’re great for homeowners and other private customers to move moderate loads over short distances, too.


Short wheel base panel vans

Our short wheel base panel vans are larger than our compact vans and offer more cargo space for larger jobs. They’re the ideal choice for transporting larger items, such as furniture or appliances. Our short wheel base panel vans are great for moving moderate loads across long distances, making them useful for tradespeople and homeowners alike. So, whether you need some temporary wheels to help you transport building materials to your site, or you need a vehicle with a little extra cargo space because you’re moving house, then our short wheel base panel vans are perfect for you.

Luton box vans

As well as our varied selection of compact and short wheel base vans, we also stock Luton box vans with tail lifts for those needing some serious cargo space. Luton box vans are the largest vans we have here at Intack Self Drive, and are brilliant for businesses or individuals that need to transport large items, such as construction materials, equipment or furniture.

Equipped with a handy tail lift, our Luton box body vans offer truly unrivalled capacity, which makes them useful for tackling even the most demanding of large-scale transport or delivery jobs, from house moves to commercial courier jobs. Whatever you’ve got planned for your Luton van, you can count on Intack Self Drive for a quick, stress free hire experience.

3500kg dropside flat van

Our dropside vans do exactly what they say on the tin - the side can be folded down to provide easy, direct access to the cargo, whether it’s a few large objects, trays of palleted goods, or piles of loose aggregate. These are typically used by tradespeople looking to transport materials and equipment, but they’re just as useful to private renters needing an effective vehicle for transporting waste from DIY projects such as materials like garden trimmings or concrete blocks.

As ever, choosing the right size van depends on the task you need to accomplish. As a general rule, we’d always say the bigger the job, the bigger the van! And regardless of the size of the job at hand, you can always be sure we’ve got a van to suit your needs here at Intack Self Drive.
