Why choose a
long wheelbase van?

A long wheelbase van gives you enough space to get most jobs done in a single trip. There’s a big difference in size between a long and a short wheelbase van – you can fit five large items of furniture in the back of a long wheelbase, compared to two in a short wheelbase. This makes a long wheelbase van a much better fit for larger moves.

All our long wheelbase vans are high top models. This makes it much easier to load and arrange items because you’ll be able to stand upright in the back. And because of the amount of space they offer, these vans are also great for transporting 3m length building supplies as well.

Long wheelbases are the perfect choice for moving out of a flat or for transporting furniture. Just like with a short wheelbase van, you may need to make multiple trips if you’re moving out of a larger property.
