Low Loader Vans Explained

A low loader van is a multi-purpose vehicle which maintains widespread use for various purposes due to the lower floor and increased payload capacity. A tail lift is not required when using a low loader van, because the rear loading height is low enough to easily lift items manually. Easy entry and access with freedom to load many items into the vehicle without assistance make these new vans ideal for jobs that require regular delivery drops. Struggling with awkward and heavy loads is a thing of the past.

Ideal For Removal Jobs

A removal job will often involve the transportation of many items within a short period of time, with the need to securely and quickly load often heavy objects and furniture into a vehicle. The low loader excels with these jobs, whereas a similar model of van without the low loader’s capabilities may require lifting machinery or additional manpower to transport objects from A to B.

Transporting Heavy Loads

Typically a low loader will be able to transport larger loads, with a payload capacity of over 1000kg. The additional space means fewer journeys, with a Van Sales UK low loader perfect for transporting heavy building materials. Known often as ‘the easy movers’, low loaders have long been the choice for haulage companies and ‘man with a van’ services.


Whether you’re looking to start a local dog-walking service or would like to install a converted horsebox into the back of your van, low loaders may be the answer due to their load capacity, easy access and widespread availability.
