3.5t Dropside Hire – 13.5 foot / 4.12 m Flatbed
Daily Hire From (excl. VAT) £45.00
Dropside Hire – 4 metre Flatbed Van
LWB 3.5 tonne GVW Dropside, 13 foot 6 inch Body
Maun Motors have a range of 3.5 tonne vans fitted with flatbed pick-up bodies to suit most applications on our dropside hire fleet. Whether you need a standard dropside, a dropside with tail-lift, or a plain flat-bed, we have a vehicle to suit your needs.
This 13 foot 6 inch (4.12 metre) dropside is based on the 3.5t L4 Long Wheelbase Transit T350 chassis-cab and – due to the shorter chassis & body weighing less – has the largest payload of all our 3,500 Kg GVW dropsides. The bodies of these vehicles feature aluminium dropsides and hard-wearing, specialist resin-bonded plywood, load decks, as well as pull-up load retention rings, under-chassis roping hooks, strong tubular steel headboard and – on some models – integrated side steps both sides & headboard grab handles.
If you’re planning long-term or contract hire, we can even arrange to have a body built specific to your needs*. Occasionally we have dropsides available with crew cabs, allowing 5 passengers and a driver to be transported in one vehicle; an extremely practical option. Please call for availibility.
CENTRAL LONDON ULEZ (ULTRA Low Emission Zone)
We are regularly updating our flet and we have an increasing number of dropside vehicles available which meet the Euro 6 / Euro VI emissions regulations, making them suitable for use within the London LEZ & ULEZ Low Emission Zones. There is an additional cost for these more modern & expensive vehicles. If you plan to use your hired vehicle within the ULEZ zone in Central London, please specify a Euro 6 vehicle when making your booking.
Please note that due to the increased cost of modern vehicles, the rental price of a Euro 6 model may be higher than a Euro 5 model; but if you will be driving through Central London this extra cost will be more than offset by not having to pay the ULEZ entry charge.
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.

*** DRIVING LICENCES – IMPORTANT UPDATE – ALL PRIVATE HIRERS PLEASE READ ***
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.
