Here at Stan Van Hire in Preston, we offer a range of rental vans from small to jumbo-sized to serve a variety of purposes, but with so much choice,  how do you know which is right for you?

We’re going to take a closer look at the medium vans that we have available to rent so you can assess your requirements before deciding whether this specific type is right for you.

A medium van is designed for three passengers to sit up front and provides an abundance of storage space in the back for transporting large items and equipment that wouldn’t be able to fit in a small van or even a large car.

The dimensions of a medium van load area are as follows:

Length: 2300mm

Width: 1600mm

Height: 1400mm

This provides approximately 7.5x5x4.5 ft of space to work with in the back of your vehicle, which we’ve found has been ideal for transporting furniture and keeping it safe throughout the journey.


Medium vans available to hire from our range include the Ford Transit SWB, one of Ford’s best-selling models; the Vauxhall Vivaro, an economical choice known for its extremely practical load area; and the Volkswagen Transporter, always a powerful and quality build.

The rates for a medium van from Stan Hire are as follows:

Day – £40

Weekend – £85.90

Week – £179.90

We believe that our prices are some of the most competitive around for the quality of the vehicle that you’ll be receiving for your chosen time-frame.

Vans aren’t the only vehicles available to rent from Stan Hire – we also have a range of rental cars, MPVs and minibuses. So if you live in or around Preston, Blackpool, Lancaster or Chorley and require a hire vehicle for whatever purpose, Stan Hire is your solution!
