Is the combi the right van for your hire?

Posted: 21/02/13

Need a van that’s great around town, performs under pressure and has deceiving space and payload capacity? The combi van could be just what you’re after.

The combi or ‘small’ van as some people refer to them are very popular as they offer the best of both worlds. Today’s small vans deliver a driving experience that will be a surprise to most, proving surprisingly agile.

What is a combi van?

They are a compact work vehicle typically featuring a single sliding side door (a second door will be optional), plus barn doors at the back, usually in a 60:40 split. Usually there’s a steel bulkhead dividing the load area from the passenger compartment which comprises of 2 seats. Diesel power is the most common power source offering an impressive 51-66 mpg combined. With a maximum payload of 775 kg they are deceivingly spacious and usually impress people with their load capacity.

Combi van uses

This van type is ideal for tradesmen, people doing home improvements or courier uses. Whether for domestic purposes or commercially, these vans are perfect for moving small items of furniture and other light haulage jobs. More so if you have no prior van experience and are worried about driving a larger van, it may make sense to hire one of these and make multiple trips.
