Our 3.5-Tonne Vans

A 3.5-tonne van is every van with a maximum allowed weight of 3.5 tonnes when loaded. These vehicles are incredibly useful, serving various purposes on a domestic and commercial scale. They’re ideal for transporting cargo and moving bulky items.

SDVH’s 3.5-tonne vans, such as a Luton van, tipper van and alike, give you a capacity of app. 600 cubic feet, ensuring you have sufficient space for large items. Some vans are even fitted with a tail lift or cherry picker to facilitate loading.

The spacious interior of a Luton, Transit and Sprinter also makes them perfect for moving items with irregular shapes, such as plumbing and building materials. Conversely, tipper and dropside vans are ideal for aggregate materials and unconventionally-shaped objects. Furthermore, all these vans require only a normal driving licence.

Benefits Of 3.5 Tonne Van Hire

A 3.5-tonne van serves various personal and commercial purposes due to its spacious storage and many options regarding van type.


Vans with a maximum allowed gross weight of 3.5 tonnes have a payload of up to 1.2 tonnes, allowing you to transport large items with ease. Their high payload makes them perfect for various heavy goods transportation needs. Whether you’re moving house or need to deliver items for big jobs, the payload capacity of this van makes it ideal.

A 3.5-tonne van also has up to 600 cubic feet of space, allowing it to accommodate irregularly-shaped items that may not fit in a smaller van. Additionally, some come with a tail lift or cherry picker to make loading seamless.

Minimal Licence Requirement

One of the reasons 3.5-tonne vans are so popular is that you do not need special licences to drive them. You can drive a 3.5-tonne van on a standard UK driving licence, like the ones required for cars. Their minimal licence requirements make these vans great for various domestic tasks.

Driving Ease

These vans are easy to manoeuvre when compared to larger trucks. Despite their large storage capacity, they have a fairly compact design that makes them easy to manoeuvre on tight city roads. They also have large wing mirrors that allow you to see behind the van easily.

Cost Effective

Hiring a 3.5-tonne van can help you save money. These vehicles can accommodate much more cargo than smaller vehicles, allowing you to transport everything you need to move in a single trip.

By completing your task in fewer trips, you can save on fuel costs. It also saves you the cost of keeping the rental vehicle longer than necessary because the sooner you finish, the sooner you can return the vehicle to the rental company.
