The Vauxhall Movano Low Loader at a glance

Picture this – you’re reaching the end of a long and arduous day sorting a customer’s possessions for a removal job, only to realise that your vehicle doesn’t have enough storage space. Sure, a few trips back and forth aren’t the end of the world, but it takes time and burns fuel. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a van that offered storage, practicality and comfort? Good news, there is!

As you may have guessed from the title of this blog, we’re talking about the Vauxhall Movano Low Loader. We’ll sink our teeth into the nitty gritty details of this excellent van later in the article, but it’s worth noting that it could be a real game-changer for your business.

First launched in 1998, the Movano range swifty established itself a firm favourite among tradespeople everywhere. Moreover, its reliability, efficiency and practical capabilities have earned the Low Loader variant a reputation for excellence within many commercial trades.

If you’re on the hunt for a commercial van that is capable of handling hefty removals, the Movano Low Loader is a sure choice. Read on to discover why!

Engines and Spec

No discussion of a commercial vehicle would be complete without taking a peek below the bonnet. The Vauxhall Movano Low Loader is powered by a mighty 2.3-litre Turbo diesel engine, connected to a 6-speed manual transmission. If you’re after a van that feels great to drive, this combination is ideal, packing a real punch when transporting heavier loads without sacrificing handling or comfort.

For a large van, the Vauxhall Movano Low Loader is surprisingly nippy. This is, of course, down to good craftsmanship and well-tuned engineering. That said, the turbo-charged engine certainly helps!


At this point, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the Movano sounds too good to be true. However, we can assure you that it is very real! That said, let’s take a look inside.

For those working within removal and courier services, storage and payload are among the most important elements of any vehicle. Fortunately, the Movano Low Loader has been designed with both in mind. The Movano Low Loader outshines the competition, sitting at the top of its class in terms of payload and volume! Of course, these figures are dependent on the model chosen, but the top payload in the low-loader variant is a whopping 1496 kg.

If that doesn’t impress you, the vast 20cm3 of load space is sure to grab your attention. The Movano Low Loader offers plenty of usable storage space, meaning less back and forths and greater efficiency on the job. What’s more, as the name suggests, the Low Loader is designed to make loading and unloading safe and easy. Although the Movano’s floor sits just 600mm from the ground, loading and unloading cargo is made even easier by the Movano’s rear, 400mm step.

In-Cab Tech

Equally, long days on the road are made easier thanks to the comfortable cab, complete with a large windscreen, elevated seating position and full infotainment suite. Whether you’re in need of sat-nav, Bluetooth, radio or USB inputs, the Movano Has you covered.

In terms of safety, the Vauxhall Movano Low Loader continues to excel; large windows, a rear-view camera and extended wing mirrors make parking and reversing a dream. Drivers of the Movano Low Loader can bid farewell to scrapes and dents.
