Vans come complete with driver, sack trucks, webbing ties, tool kit and a number of thick, ex-British Army, blankets to protect customers goods in transit.

Medium size van: volume approx. 130cu ft; load length 6.5ft, load width 5ft, load height 4.5ft plus roof rack if required. Two passengers can be carried. Used for light removals, student moves, small office moves, multiple small item drops and single item moves.

3.5ton Luton with tail lift: volume approx. 650cu ft; load length 13.5ft, load width 7 ft, load height 7ft plus space above cab. Two passengers can be carried. Used to move one or two bedroom flat/house or, with careful packing, lightly furnished three-bedroom property.

7.5 ton truck*: volume approx 1280cu ft; load length 20 ft, load width 8 ft, load height 8 ft. two passengers can be carried. Used for heavily furnished three or four bedroom houses.

We are a light removals specialist, therefore our maximum sized move of any distance would be 1280cu ft. This equates to medium furnished four-bedroom house.

As a rule of thumb regarding large items, a light to medium furnished four bedroom house might contain one double bed and three single beds, a modest amount of bedroom furniture, a three piece suite, a dining suite/wall unit, corner unit, a cooker, microwave oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a medium chest freezer, a washing machine and tumble dryer, a patio set, small shed, garden tools, small barbecue and some bikes. This level of move is well within our capability.

However, a heavily furnished four bedroom house might contain three double beds, two/three bedroom suites, two dining suites, bureau, two three piece suites, piano, range cooker, microwave oven, American style upright fridge and freezer, large chest freezer, industrial washing machine and tumble dryer, dishwasher, filing cabinet, conservatory suite, copious amounts of patio furniture, a large garden shed, ladders, rolls of carpet, outdoor play equipment, large barbecue, umpteen garden urns, exercise equipment, golf trolley/clubs, bikes, canoe, skiing/diving kit etc. As our maximum size move is 1280 cu ft [equivalent to a 7.5 ton truck], and such a vehicle is unable to cope with this volume of goods, a long distance move of this size is beyond our capability.

On the other hand, one 3.5 Luton van will hold [approx]: 3-piece suite, television unit, corner unit, coffee table, washing machine, cooker, tumble dryer, microwave, fridge/freezer, one double bed, two single beds [when disassembled], 2 wardrobes, dressing table, chest of drawers, bookcase, 2 bedside cabinets and 30 - 40 medium sized boxes and bags. Obviously, a 7.5 ton truck, or another 3.5 ton Luton, will carry double this volume of goods.

*For reasons of versatility [cramped Cornish villages and congested English towns] we now prefer to use 3.5ton Luton’s instead of 7.5ton trucks.
