SWB Van Hire, Standard Roof


Short wheelbase, low roof (L1 H1) self-drive panel van hire


Extremely versatile, plywood lined, generous loading capacities, able to be driven on a standard category B car licence and an endless list of possible uses; that’s the humble Maun Motors panel van.  Whether it’s SWB, MWB, LWB, Extra-Long or even Crew Van hire in the East Midlands that you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place!

Due to the versatility and mass appeal of panel vans, there is a mind-boggling selection of different wheelbases, roof heights and configurations of LCVs available from all of the major van manufacturers. We endeavour to carry a range of the most popular sizes and configurations on our van hire fleet, although the exact selection is subject to availability.

We currently have SWB Low Roof (L1H1) versions of both the Ford Transit van and Ford Transit Custom van available to hire.

The Transit SWB van has the following approximate internal loadspace dimensions:

length = 2.58m  |  width = 1.75m  |  height = 1.4m

load volume = 6.5m³

The Transit Custom L1H1 van has the following approximate internal loadspace dimensions:

length = 2.55m  |  width = 1.77m  |  height = 1.4m

load volume = 6m³


PRIVATE HIRERS (e.g. for personal use, not for company use) – Private Hire Rates shown below (Private 24hr and Private 4hr“, where applicable) INCLUDE VAT and INSURANCE COVER! Please call us for further details.

INSURANCE EXCLUSIONS: Please note that when hiring vehicles on our own insurance, towing with the vehicle is NOT permitted; even if the vehicle you hire has a towbar fitted. This is a condition of our insurance and is beyond our control. If you need to tow with your hire vehicle, you must arrange additional insurance cover prior to commencement of the hire agreement.


In 2015 the DVLA abolished the paper counterpart driving licence. This affects how we are able to validate the driving licences of our customers. Hirers must now enter their details into a website in order to share some of their licence details with us, otherwise we are unable to hire to them.

If you are hiring a vehicle from us which will be covered by our insurance it is essential that you read the information at the following link:

All Ford Transit & Transit Custom panel vans, hired from Maun Motors, have doors which open at least 180°, as well as a sliding side-loading door.   Both configurations give excellent loading potential, even using a fork-lift truck!

A ‘Jumbo’ or ‘Hi-Cube’ configuration is the largest version of each van model available.  It combines a longer wheelbase with a higher roof; which creates a larger internal storage space, to give you optimum carrying ability.

Our team will be happy to assist you in finding the best commercial vehicle to hire for your needs, so if you would like to discuss your requirements, please give our team a call today on 01773 810007 or use our handy contact form to request a call back.
