What sizes of vans are available to hire at Europcar?

Europcar offers vans and trucks to hire of various sizes, through a solid network of locations across the UK. Whether you need to move a few items or a whole house, we’ll have the right sized van for your job. We have makes and models that range from small parcel vans to spacious big box vans and we indicate the load capacity of our vans in cubic metres when you book your van category.

Small vans with a 3m3 to 6m3 load capacity

These small and compact vans are a popular choice of hire van for city use due to their compact dimensions and ease to drive and park. You can seat a driver and one passenger. This size of small van is ideal for one or two kitchen appliances (such as a washing machine, fridge, cooker) or some small pieces of furniture like dining table chairs or chests of drawers. Alternatively, you could probably fit 8-12 cardboard removal boxes, depending on their size.

Small van models and brands commonly hired among Europcar fleet are the VW Caddy or Citroen Berlingo.

Medium vans with a 8m3 to 12m3 load capacity

Vans up from 8m3 to 12m3 load capacity are an ideal size for deliveries or transporting trade tools. These versatile and fuel-efficient types of vans come with a range of features and equipment for safety and comfort. Many of the models include height-adjustable seats, parking sensors and cruise control. These medium vans also have more headroom, usually a minimum of 1.4m, meaning you can transport some higher items that can be stood upright. Alternatively, you should be able to fit several dozen removal boxes if properly stacked, which is enough if you’re moving to a new studio or flat.

Our popular medium vans for hire include the Peugeot Boxer and Ford Transit.

Large vans from 14m3 load capacity to small truck up to 20m3

Moving to a new house? Moving your small shop to bigger premises? Need a big vehicle capable of transporting all your furniture and boxes? Our large, 14m3 van has ample carrying capacity – enough to move while keeping costs to a minimum.

Cabs seat three and are designed for comfort and convenience, the bulkhead is full size and the rear will be fitted with load-lashing points for safe transportation of the load. Large vans are just the ticket for small house moves or transporting a large object, such as a grand piano, large rugs or pieces of furniture and a very large number of boxes.

The Europcar van fleet includes the Mercedes Sprinter and Iveco Daily.
