Value Dropside Hire – 4 metre Flatbed Van


VALUE RANGE – 3.5 tonne GVW Dropside, 13 foot 6 inch Body


The Value Range of 3.5 tonne hire vans from Maun Motors is predominantly aimed at private & non-business rental customers who need to hire a vehicle for a short period of time – from 4 hours to a few days – with insurance included. We sought to provide a range of modern vehicles with impressive features, which would be a joy to hire and drive. Often this market is catered for with older vehicles which have been well used, making them suitable for short-term cheap van hire, but we thought we could offer customers something different. Something better.

Maun Motors’ Value Range of vans is built on brand-new, lightweight LDV V80 (formerly Maxus) chassis-cabs, which offer a superb level of driver comfort with features including: Air Conditioning, Electric Windows, Electric Mirrors, Cruise Control, Bluetooth Connectivity, 2.5 litre Turbo-charged Engine, Disc Brakes All-round with ABS & ESP. The V80 is a front-wheel drive vehicle, so it benefits from a low loadiong height and improved payload over similar, rear-wheel drive models. On these chassis we fit top-quality bodies by our primary body builder, JC Payne. With hard-wearing components such as heavy-duty resin-bonded load deck, and handy features like V-groove side raves with pull-up lashing hooks, so you can be assured that although you’re paying a great value price to hire our Value Range, you’re hiring a quality vehicle which is on top of the job!

This 13 foot 6 inch (4.12 metre) dropside has amongst the largest payload of all our 3,500 Kg GVW dropsides – a whopping 1400kg! The bodies of these vehicles feature aluminium dropsides and tail boards, under-chassis roping hooks and aluminium ladder-frame headboard.

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:

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. However, there is an additional cost for these more modern & expensive vehicles so they may not be available in our Value Range. 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.

Other similar vehicles we have available to hire include: 3.5t single cab tippers, 3.5t crew cab tippers, 7.5t dropsides, flatbeds, beavertails, skip loaders and panel vans.
