Moving? – Don’t Do It Yourself!

Van for Hire

Moving house can be most stressful, especially if you intend to do everything yourself – including the relocation of your belongings. If you are moving to a totally different city, moving by yourself is not possible, especially if you are a family. Another big problem – obviously, is if you do not have the necessary means of transportation.

Choice Vehicle Rentals has some useful advice for you.

Hire a Vehicle from a Car Rental Company

Why? — Less worry, less delays and less hassle! For a car rental experience that is stress free, do this:

Book early – the earlier, the better!

This is to avoid unwanted situations like fully booked vans on the weekends or holidays. There may also be some instances that your preferred vehicle will not be available. Lack of availability is surely one of the main concerns.

Choose the right vehicle

Since you are relocating, hire a van that is big enough to carry all your things. However, the bigger the vehicle, the more expensive it gets. Try and get something that will get the job done in one single trip, in just one rental vehicle.

Don’t Lift Everything Yourself!

Get help! Reach out to friends, extended family or significant others. While moving implies starting out anew, ask for help when moving your belongings. If no one is willing to move heavy items, the least they can do is help you to pack things well.

Ford Transit Luton Van: An Ideal House Mover

Ford Transit Luton Van

The Ford Transit Luton van is a classic and an ideal mover of household furniture and other heavy appliances.

What is a Luton Body Type of Van?

A Luton body type of van is a kind of commercial vehicle integrating an enclosed large box body fitted on the back, that extends over the cab. Today, a Luton body type of van can be assembled and tailored to the chassis of other models, like the Ford Transit.

Why is a Ford Transit Luton Van ideal for house movers?

The size and the loading capacity is the one of the most important things to consider when choosing a vehicle to move house.

The Ford Transit Luton Van is excellent for bulky objects such as furniture, large boxes and heavy equipment that is often associated with relocating to a new home.

It is a larger type of van that has a greater load space compared to a pick-up truck. Despite the fact that a pick-up truck is commonly used in moving household items, the size and the loading capacity of a Luton van is obviously greater than a pick-up truck.

Luton Van Single Cab Pick-up Truck Double Cab Pick-up Truck
Payload 1050 kg 1031 kg 913 kg
Size (internal length) 3.93 metres 3.20 metres 2.85 metres

Based on these statistics, we can see that the Luton van is larger in size and has a greater loading capacity.

In comparison with an extra-long wheel base van, you’ll see that a Luton van still has more space to offer. In the table below, you’ll see the differences between a Luton van and an extra-long wheel base van, in terms of dimensions.

Luton Van Extra-long Wheel Base Van
External Height 3.30 metres 2.55 metres
External Length 6.70 metres 6.55 metres
Internal Height 2.18 metres 1.85 metres
Internal Width 1.95 metres 1.75 metres
Internal length 3.93 metres 4.00 metres

Though they don’t always provide as much internal length as an extra-long wheel base van, they offer greater width and height.

The entire load compartment is typically above the wheels of the rear part of the vehicle. Thus, the rear wheel arches do not hinder during the loading process.

Other Features

Some of the other features of a Luton van include the following:

  • Slam shut lockable uPVC slat shutter – wide slat shutter gives maximum internal headroom
  • Internal emergency door release – allows rear shutter to be raised if inadvertently locked from the outside
  • Full height internal access grab handle – can be used as a support while stepping on the rear step
  • Internal side wall mounted load restrain rails – include load anchourage points located in the lower rail
  • Full width aluminium rear step – provides a wider space to step, while loading or unloading

Hiring a Moving Truck

The most common challenge people face when transferring homes is that old and familiar ‘moving your belongings’ part. Relying on the services of a moving company is definitely a much safer option. However, it tends to be pricey.

One of the most typical house moving procedures these days is to rent a van and do the move yourself. Renting a van is considered to be one of the most convenient ways to move all your belongings from A to B. Here is a list of some of the reasons why it makes sense to avoid removal companies:

There is no need to make an appointment

This means that you won’t have to worry about scheduling the relocation and you can work in your own time. Plus, it will relieve the stress of managing the removal company operatives. Moreover, instead of hiring a company to do the job, you can employ the people whom you trust to help you with the move. You can even make the moving part fun by having a house moving party.

Renting a Truck is a whole lot cheaper

 cvr 1

Yes, there are a lot of moving firms out there and they do their job well. However, they tend to be very expensive — this will incur extra charges for transport containers, extra manpower, etc. Thus, you will never know the actual cost of the moving process until you see the bill at the end. Alternatively, you can rent a truck and pay the price in full. Although you will have to pay for fuel and sometimes for mileage on top, all in all the entire cost is a lot less.

If you are planning to do the move yourself, then you need to find a vehicle rental company. The good thing is, there are a lot of vehicle rental companies across the country, and a reputable example is “Choice Vehicle Rental”. They offer car hire Sussex, Eastbourne, Gatwick and throughout the UK. Their rates are affordable and flexible. Contact Choice Vehicle Rentals, today and save yourself a packet!

Common Types of Trucks Used for Transporting

Common Types of Trucks Used for Transporting

Trucks and Lorries are made for the specific purpose of transporting heavy materials. They need to be heavy duty, reliable and fuel efficient. Let`s look at a few common variations, according to their unique capabilities.

Dump Truck/Tipper Lorry

Dump Truck/Tipper Lorry

A dump truck or tipper lorry (UK) is usually used by construction companies for transporting large amounts of loose materials like sand and gravel. A normal type of tipper lorry has an open-box bed that is hinged at the back and includes a hydraulic motor to lift the front. This enables the truck to dump or tip its contents in a designated area.

Flatbed Truck/Lorry

 Flatbed Truck/Lorry

As the name implies, a flatbed truck/lorry has an entirely flat body bed, with no cover on the top or at the sides. It is the most versatile kind of truck because it can carry most load types. It is usually used to transport big and heavy materials that are not susceptible to rainfall. It is also recommended for loads which require a wider area that other body type trucks cannot handle.

Double Cab Truck

Double Cab Truck

A Double Cab Truck is a type of pick-up truck that contains a second row of seats. It is capable of accommodating up to 4 passengers, plus the driver. It also has an open pick up space behind the passenger cab. This type of truck offers a practical solution for moving household items because the double cab truck doesn’t only transport the furniture and appliances, it also offers a ride to people who are shifting residence at the same time.
