What is a Box Body Van?

Do I need a box body van?

A box body van is a commercial van for regular, extended journeys with utilised space for bulkier items. A Luton van, such as the Peugeot Boxer van, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and Ford Transit, is a popular choice for box van customers. The box van features a large, square container bolted to the back of a single cab chassis van. The benefit is that the box (usually based on a pre-fabricated aluminium frame) is uniformly square, with no wheel arch taking up floor space. So there's a maximum amount of space available for large or bulky items. Loading and unloading happen through the rear doors. So many box-bodied vehicles have a tail lift fitted to enable deliveries where no loading dock or forklift is available. 

A popular variation on the box van is the curtain side, which replaces the sides of the box with vinyl curtains that slide open to access the load area. A tipper is commonly added to large vans, as it's an excellent interim solution between a van and a 7.5-tonne truck. However, you need to be careful that the van's Mass In Transit doesn't exceed the 3.5-tonne maximum that users with a standard driving licence are allowed to operate.
