Choice Vehicle Rentals offers a wide range of vehicles for our Gatwick car hire services. Aside from cars and vans, we also offer 7.5 tonne vehicles with tail lifts.
The 7.5-tonne Vehicle at Choice Vehicle Rentals
Our 7.5-tonne vehicle is powered by diesel fuel and has a manual transmission.
- Common Use
7.5-tonne vehicles are commonly used by businesses for deliveries or by people who are moving house or business. They use this type of vehicle to transfer large and heavy articles like furniture and appliances. On the other hand, businesses use this type of vehicle to deliver hefty products or a large number of food supplies, packages and parcels. Since the 7.5-tonne has a tail lift (mobile dock leveller), it can facilitate the handling and transferring of heavy products or goods from the bed of the vehicle to the ground level or a loading dock and vice versa.
- Compliance to Low Emission Zone
All 7.5-tonne vehicles at Choice Vehicle Rentals comply with London’s Low Emission Zone standards. The Low Emission Zone or LEZ is a traffic pollution charge scheme that works 24/7, all-year round in most parts of Greater London. It works to support the aim to reduce the tailpipe emissions of heavy diesel-powered commercial vehicles operating in London. Vehicles that do not comply with the high emission standards will be charged. On the other hand, there are vehicles that are allowed to enter the controlled zone for free.
The C1 Category Licence Requirement when Hiring a 7.5 Tonne Vehicle
