What size van do I need?
When looking at van hire, you will need to consider various dimensions, as well as the overall volume of space in the load carrying area of the van. Think about the size of the items that you will be transporting. Measure the length, height and width of the largest items and compare this to the size of the load carrying space in the back of the van if you need to. Also take into consideration, how you need to stack your items and if you need to just make one trip or multiple trips. At My Mate Dave, we offer sizes to suit your needs.
Another consideration is "payload", which is the maximum weight that the van is designed to carry safely. The weight of your load needs to be less than or equal to the payload for the vehicle, for your load to be carried legally.
If you have more than one other person that needs to travel with you in the van, also check how many seats the van has and how many people it is designed to carry.
