Explaining van sizes and their best uses

If you are in the market for a rented van, it is important to understand the different sizes and what each one is best used for. There are a few different sizes available, and each one has its own unique benefits. In this blog post, we will take a look at each size and discuss what it is best used for and .


What is the difference between LWB, XLWB and a LUTON VAN?

LWB, XLWB and Luton vans all refer to types of vehicles with specific dimensions. Long wheelbase (LWB) vans have a longer distance between the front and rear axles than standard vans. This gives them extra space in the back, making them ideal for carrying large loads. Extra long wheelbase (XLWB) vans take this concept one step further, with even more space in the back.

Luton vans are a type of van that is characterised by its large size, taller roof and boxy shape. They are often used for moving heavy or bulky items, and their spacious interiors make them ideal for this purpose. While LWB and XLWB vans both have extra space in the back, Luton vans are significantly larger overall, making them the best choice for carrying extremely large or heavy loads. In addition, all of our Luton vans can come with a tail lift, making loading and unloading much easier.

This is a question we get asked a lot, and it’s not an easy one to answer. The size of van you’ll need depends on a number of factors, including the amount of furniture and belongings you have, the distance you’re moving, and whether or not you’re willing to make multiple trips.

In general, however, we recommend renting a Luton van if you’re moving a three-bedroom house. Luton vans are the largest type of van available, and their spacious interiors make them perfect for moving larger items – like beds, sofas, and dining tables. Plus, you’ll be less likely to have to make multiple trips if you rent a Luton van, which will save you time and money in the long run.
