What is a tipper vehicle?

If you transport heavy, loose loads that need to be unloaded quickly once you get to your destination, leasing a tipper van might be the most suitable choice. Construction and landscaping companies love tippers since they make moving heavy, loose loads like building materials and garden waste easy.

Constructed with an open, flat load area and low folding sides made of lightweight aluminium, the tipper van is easy to load manually or using a forklift. Meanwhile, the underfloor tipping systems allows you to tip the vehicle's body, so heavy loads can be unloaded at the back or side. Its design also allows the sides to drop below the depth of the deck, making the vehicle less vulnerable to forklift damage. What's more, tipper vans can hold as many as four pallets! To increase safety, you can lease a tipper truck with anchoring points that prevent dangerous load shifting.

Here are some pictures of a Ford Transit tipper we recently delivered to a customer. Further down this page, you'll also find a video of this vehicle in action.

Tippers offer a generous payload and are extremely practical. You can easily load the vehicle using a forklift, and when you arrive at your destination, you simply open the tailgate and empty it all. Consequently, it can save hours of your valuable time.

Tippers with cage

A tipper van with a cage (cage tipper) is ideal for securing larger bulky loads of garden or building materials for tipping. The cage adds to the capacity of a standard tipper, allowing for the transportation of larger items. Additionally, the cage can be used to secure the load using a padlock, providing added peace of mind.

1-way tippers and 3-way tipper vans

Tipper vans come in different sizes and offer different tipping functions, so you have to be sure that you choose the right one for your business. The tipping action will depend on the model you lease and should be a priority when choosing a tipper van.

Although one-way tipper vans are cheaper, they're limited in their functionality because they can only tip from the back. However, the three-way tipper van offers the most convenience, since you can tip from both sides and the back.

You can talk to our tipper van conversion experts about the best option for your business based on what you will be transporting.

How do the tipper and dropside vans differ?

Dropside and tipper vans look similar, but they serve different purposes.

In contrast to dropsides, tipper vans allow the entire load area to be mechanically raised at an angle so that the load is tipped out. However, the addition of a tipping mechanism makes tipper vans heavier. As a result, they typically offer lower payload capacity than dropside vans.

Bespoke tipper body conversions

Commercial vehicle manufacturers offer a diverse range of factory-converted vehicles, including dropsides, tippers, Luton vans, and other specialised products. However, if none of the factory-built tipper vans from manufacturers meet your requirements or the waiting period is longer than you can accommodate, there is a solution. Tipper van conversions offer the flexibility to create the customsed vehicle you desire within a relatively short timeframe of 4 to 6 weeks. With conversions, you have the opportunity to tailor the van to your specific needs and preferences without having to wait for a factory order.

Our team will assist you in selecting the appropriate chassis cab that will serve as the foundation for your tipper van conversion. The choice of chassis cab will depend on various factors, such as the desired length of the tipper van and whether you require a single cab or a crew tipper van configuration. Once the chassis cab is chosen, we will proceed with converting it according to your specific requirements.

As part of the conversion process, we can also install Chapter 8 signage or light bars if you request them. These additions can enhance the safety and visibility of your tipper van.

Once the conversion and any requested installations are complete, your new tipper van will be ready for delivery. We take pride in our conversions and strive to provide a seamless experience in creating and delivering your new tipper van.

How does leasing a tipper van conversion work?

Leasing a tipper conversion follows the same process as leasing a pre-built model, where the conversion cost and the chassis cab are combined in your agreement. This eliminates the need to make an upfront payment for the conversion, as you will pay a monthly fee similar to leasing a ready-made model.

During the leasing process, you will have the opportunity to select your preferred terms, including annual mileage, deposit amount, and contract length. Additionally, you can choose to include our vehicle maintenance package for added peace of mind. This package covers standard servicing, repairs, MOTs, and tyre replacements for your leased vehicle.
