Van Hire for Moving House
Moving house is still the number one reason most people rent a van.
The question “will it fit my sofa in?” remains probably the most asked things we hear. If only I knew what size everyone’s sofa was!
It is hard to work out which size van you need to move house and it is different for everyone. From experience, it comes down to how you pack the vehicle. The general rule of thumb is, if you have lots of large bulky items, then go as large as you feel comfortable driving.
The smaller the van, the more adept at packing it you need to be. Most short wheel-based vans (your typical Ford Transit Custom size) will have about 8 foot in length in the back. Enough for most beds or sofas to fit it. Then it’s a question of how many other large items you need to fit around the sofa or bed.
If you have heavy items, then you may find the ease of a tail lift on one of our Luton box vans is perfect for you – they certainly make things a little less physical! Luton vans are by far the most popular for house moves. At the end of the day, wouldn’t you rather have too much space than not enough?
The physical effort of actually moving all your belongings is never easy. Guidance on choosing the right one and having it at times to suit you is one less thing to worry about on the day.
You can be confident that no matter what you decide on, all of our hire vans can be driven on a standard UK car licence. You can collect and return vans to our Haddenham, Aylesbury or High Wycombe offices.
