Not only does this model have a ton of space in the back, but it makes loading and unloading cargo a breeze with its tail lift. This equipment can carry the load up to 500 kg.

Why Ford Transit Luton Box With A Tail Lift Stands Out?

The Ford Transit Luton van is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to hire a vehicle to transport goods. It has a variety of benefits that make it stand out in the van market.
  • Lots of cargo space: The Ford Transit Luton is the most spacious van in our fleet, with a whopping 600 cubic feet of space. On top of the space you usually find in a Transit, you can enjoy the extra space in the Luton on top of the cab.
  • Convenient loading and unloading: The tail lift of this model makes loading and unloading heavy cargo a piece of cake. You won’t have trouble filling the van up to its payload limit of 1000 kg with the tail lift.
  • Easy, comfortable driving: This van offers a comfortable drive and feels a lot smaller than it is on the road. Even inexperienced large van drivers will find it easy to manoeuvre.

Why Choose SDVH?

SDVH is the ideal choice for anyone looking to hire a Ford Transit Luton van with a tail lift. We’re a premier UK vehicle hire company that offers a large number of diverse vehicles to suit your every transportation need.

Whether you require a box van, tipper van, 12-seater minibus or Ford Transit Luton body hire, we can provide you with the ideal vehicle for a low price. The Transit Luton is our biggest van, but you can check out our other 3.5-tonne vans to see what we have to offer for transporting various cargo.

We don’t believe in mileage caps when it comes to renting out our vans. We give our customers complete control over how much distance they want to cover. The price stays the same whether you cover a mile or a hundred miles per day. No additional fees are required for driving at length if you don’t do courier services.

About The Ford Transit Luton Van

The Ford Transit is one of the most popular vans in the world, with over 8 million units sold worldwide since its release. It is commonly used as a base vehicle for Luton van conversions due to its versatility and reliability. In 2022, Ford sold 42,762 Transits in the UK alone.


There is a fascinating history behind one of Ford’s most iconic vans. It has seen numerous changes throughout the years before becoming the recognisable van we know today.

  • First generation: The Ford Transit Mk1 was introduced in October 1965 as a three and four-door van with American-inspired styling. It had a longer wheelbase length than its predecessor, the Ford Thames.
  • Second generation: The Mk2 introduced the pickup, minibus, and Transit Luton van body types. The engine range of the original model was largely left unchanged, but later facelifts included improvements.
  • Third generation: The Mk3 borrowed style elements from other Ford brand models, such as the Focus and Ka.
  • Fourth generation: Launched in 2013, the fourth generation of the Ford Transit featured changes to the power train and body configuration. A battery electric cargo van model was available from 2022 onwards.

For those who need a bigger transport vehicle than a Ford Transit Luton van that also has a tail lift – SDVH offers tail lift truck hire as well.

Fun Facts

  • The Ford Transit was described as ‘Britain’s most wanted van’ in 1972 due to its prevalence in bank raids.
  • The Transit County four-wheel drive conversion is used by the UK Ministry of Defence and mountain rescue teams due to its capabilities both on and off-road.

The Ford Transit Luton van is a popular tail lift van hire option for families looking to move furniture. If you need this particular van or any type of box van for your move, give us a phone call, and we’ll find the perfect vehicle for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, all of our Luton vans come with a tail lift. You can find a Luton van without a tail lift elsewhere, but this feature is incredibly helpful when moving furniture or other large cargo. The reason some people purchase vans without a tail lift is that it may act as excess weight alongside heavy cargo and put the van over the maximum authorised mass.

A tail lift is usually used for loading and unloading heavy cargo that would otherwise require a forklift. The tail lift of a Luton van Ford Transit can handle up to 500 kg, which is more than enough for most cargo carried in vans. Vehicles above 3.5T often have stronger tail lifts, though they require at least a C1 licence to drive them.

Yes, having a tail lift reduces the payload of a Ford Transit Luton van. The excess weight of the tail lift (about 140 kg) contributes to the maximum authorised mass of the vehicle, meaning you can’t carry as much in the cargo space. You can choose to exchange convenience for some extra payload by getting a van without a tail lift, but this would make loading and unloading more challenging.
