If you are moving house and looking to hire a man and van to help, then it is likely that the rated driver will come in a Luton van. This is because they are not only spacious but reliable, which makes them ideal for transporting large items such as furniture. However, it is important to remember that like other removal vehicles, Luton vans do have weight limits which your driver has to adhere to – otherwise they could find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
Weight limits will vary between Luton vans – depending on manufacturers and models – but the majority of load limits tend to fall between 1000kgs and 1300 kgs for a 3.5T Luton Van. For a 7T Luton van the limits are closer to 2800kg. However, each make and model will have its own ‘design gross weight’ and you can find this on your van’s vehicle identification number (VIN) plate.
