Our Luton Van Hire, Who is it for?

Our Luton Van Hire, Who is it for?

Are you one of the lucky house hunters who took advantage of the stamp duty holiday? Last July the government suspended stamp duty on the first £500,000 of all property sales in England and Northern Ireland to help boost the market until the 31st March 2021. This has seen a steep increase in property sales throughout this period and therefore an increase in demand for van hire in Norfolk. It’s thought that purchasing houses during this time has meant you could have saved as much as £15,000 if you are purchasing a property of over £500,000. Moving home at any time of year can be stressful, however navigating this landmark in your life during this unusual time has been even harder for many people joining or climbing the property ladder. Choosing the correct size van or truck for the move is critical when moving home. For many this may be the first time you’ve hired a van, or perhaps you’re not sure what type of van you require. We’re always here to help your move go as smoothly as possible.

Which size van should I hire when moving house?

When moving house it’s important to consider how much stuff you will require moving and how large your house is. Our most popular house mover is the 3.5T Luton with Tail Lift. It’s of an adequate size to hold up to 40 boxes of personal belongings, along with a number of different household items such as dining table and chairs, white goods, beds, wardrobes and chest of drawers. The additional benefit of the Luton with tail lift is it can be driven with a car licence. You arelegally entitled to drive anything up to 3.5t on a category B (that’s a standard car licence issued post 1997), and luckily that means the Luton is included within this bracket.

Should I consider hiring a van with a tail lift?

Whenever you expect to be transporting anything heavy we’d recommend hiring the Luton with tail lift, a van equipped with tail life will take a lot of the hard labour out of moving house. Making use of this addition will eradicate any need for straining when moving that oversize wardrobe or multiple white goods.

I’ve never driven a van before. Will I be able to hire a Luton van?

Cabs are as comfortable as a car and the larger windscreen provides a clear view of the road ahead, alongside larger wing mirrors allowing drivers to see easily behind them.
