Dropside Van Hire


LWB 3.5 tonne GVW Dropside Pick-up, 14 foot Body


Maun Motors have a range of 3.5 tonne vans fitted with flatbed pick-up bodies to suit most applications on our dropside van 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 14 foot (4.25 metre) dropside is based on the hardy 3,5oo Kg GVW Volkswagen Crafter CR35 TDI or Iveco Daily 35C 3.5t long wheelbase (L3 / LWB) chassis-cab for the perfect balance of durability, payload and performance.

If you’re planning long-term or contract hire, we can even arrange to have a body built specific to your needs*.  In the past we’ve supplied 3.5 tonne vehicles with specialist 19 foot/5.8m dropside bodies for carrying PVCu extrusions.  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 and strong tubular steel headboard.


We are regularly updating our fleet 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.
