Browse our large selection of vans

Our extensive range of vehicles offers something to suit all requirements and budgets, whether you need to collect a large purchase or move your whole house.

For smaller loads choose from compact vans such as the VW Caddy or Mercedes Benz Vito. Larger loads may benefit from the extra capacity of a Mercedes Benz Sprinter or the Iveco 35S16. And if you’re moving house, consider one of the larger Iveco models which go up to 34.4m3 capacity – plenty of space for getting all your belongings to your new home!

Meanwhile, the huge GR.6 Man 12 Tonner is even larger and can tackle the biggest of transport jobs with ease – so there really is no excuse for putting off the job!

Van driving tips in Germany

First time driving a truck in Germany? Whether you’re new to driving a larger vehicle, or a seasoned pro, we’ve put together a few tips to help you on your way:

  • Take a few minutes when you first get into the vehicle to familiarise yourself with the layout and controls.
  • If you’re new to driving in Germany, remember that driving is on the right hand side of the road.
  • You must carry your driving licence with you at all times and be prepared to show it on request.
  • Speed limits are 50 km/h in built-up areas and 100 km/h outside built-up areas. Autobahns and motorways may have limits up to 130 km/h.
  • It’s a good idea to avoid peak times in cities when traffic will be at its busiest.
  • Plan your route in advance and make sure it doesn’t include any roads that are unsuitable for large vehicles.
  • Be aware of the height of the vehicle and check it will fit under any structures such as low bridges or car park entrances.
  • A large truck may need a bit more space for turning than you’re used to so be sure to allow for this when parking and manoeuvring.
  • Slow down, particularly in windy conditions.
  • Carrying a heavy load can affect braking and acceleration so make sure you allow for this.
  • If you run into trouble, you can dial 112 from anywhere in Europe and an operator will connect you to an emergency service in the country you're visiting.
