3.5t Dropside Van Hire – 17 foot / 5m+ XXL Extra Long Flatbed
Daily Hire From (excl. VAT) £55.00
Extra Long L5 Dropside Van Hire
17 foot / 5+ metre XXL 3.5t Dropside Hire!
Maun Motors have a range of 3.5 tonne vans fitted with flatbed pick-up bodies to suit most applications, 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 extra-long 17 foot (5.16 to 5.20 metre) “Jumbo” dropside is the longest 3.5 tonne GVW flatbed we have available on our van rental fleet; even longer than our 16 foot 3.5t Dropsides. Based on the all-new Ford Transit T350 TDCi L5 (LWB EF) long wheelbase extended frame chassis-cab, these dropsides are popular for use in transporting scaffolding, uPVC extrusions and window & door frames, street lighting, etc. We are one of very few self-drive hire companies to offer a 5 metre+ dropside body on a 3.5t van.
Despite the impressive load length size, this vehicle can still be driven on a standard car licence (category B) and due to its ultra-light body construction – using aluminium wherever possible – it still has an impressive payload of over a tonne! The dropside bodies of these vehicles feature aluminium dropsides and hard-wearing, specialist resin-bonded plywood, load decks, along with pull-up load retention rings, under-chassis roping hooks & aluminium ladder-frame 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*. In the past we’ve supplied 3.5 tonne vehicles with specialist 19 foot/5.8m dropside bodies for carrying PVCu extrusions.
Occasionally we have dropsides available with crew cabs, allowing up to 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 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.
