SWB Transit vans, plenty of space & easy to drive
The short wheelbase (SWB ) Transit is a very popular rental van, offering a generous load area and comfortable driving experience in towns, cities and on country roads. The SWB transit van is an ideal vehicle for carrying medium sized items such as furniture, office equipment and those one off Ebay purchases that you just cannot wait to collect. With payloads in the region of 900kg to 1200kg and between 5 to 6 m3 load space, not only is there more room compared to courier vans but fuel economy remains good too, within the region of 30-38mpg.
Typical internal dimensions
- Length = 2.40 metres
- Width = 1.77 metres
- Height = 1.42 metres
LWB Transit vans, perfect for larger loads
For very large pieces of furniture and office equipment, or simply to accommodate a multitude of items why not take advantage of the long wheelbase (LWB) Transit van. This size of Transit allows for much larger, heavier loads and is even available in a high roof version, perfect for longer journeys or deliveries. With a payload of between 1400kg and 1700kg and an internal load space of 12 m3, the LWB transit allows for those few extra items that you simply couldn’t squeeze into the short wheel base transit. As expected, fuel consumption is slightly lower with the LWB transit ranging from 25-35mpg.
Typical internal dimensions
- Length = 3.45 metres
- Width = 1.68 metres
- Height = 1.70 metres (high roof version)
If you have a medium to large load that you want to move, why pay a removal or courier firm when for a one off fee you can have it done in no time, on your terms, with transit van hire in Glasgow.
