Designed for dry freight or secure loads, Movano Luton has market leading payload, European design standards, a myriad of features easily adapted for a tail-lift –and it’s your perfect road cargo buddy.
The Vauxhall Movano Luton is a large cargo van with oodles of storage space in its box container attached to the back. Designed for transporting dry freight loads, the Luton Box van tends to be used by businesses that transport cargo, like a removals company or furniture delivery outfits.
A typical Luton conversion has sides and a bulkhead made from durable glass-reinforced plastic. It also has lots of great features, such as an integrated, swivelling interior spot lamp, rear mud flaps, aluminium exterior profiles, bolt on/off Luton mould, no visible fixings for livery application and steel parts dip e-coated and powder-coated/zinc plated.
The 500kg tail lift and telescopic load restrain poles are optional. The tail lift is a whizz at loading up with heavy items like sofas, cabinets and wardrobes and can raise up 500kg in one go. This reduces payload however as the lift weighs up to 250kg. Roller shutters come as standard; barn doors are optional.
This study box on wheels has 2,100mm or 2,470mm widths including door mirrors, lengths of 4,332mm or 6,767mm and loading widths of 1,951mm max. The gross value weight (GVW) is 3,500kg.
Everyone has their own needs – we get that – and for this reason we offer customisation options to enable customers to get the van they want and need. Generally, a 4 metre Movano Luton Box with or without tail lift and optional LoadLok or tie rails is a good choice.
We supply both ready made manufacturer built luton vans and bespoke builds. It seems that everyone is in a rush when it comes to a Luton, as they are so expensive to rent, and so few about. All Luton vans are handmade so you will see literally the tool marks of the craftsman who made it regardless of the make and model. A bespoke luton van will possibly need single vehicle type approval if the builder has never mad eone quite like it before. This can add an extra month or two to delivery so stock lutons are much more popular.
- Most if not all are made from GRP over marine ply. It light weight, maintenance free, resits minor knocks
Aluminium is seldom used now due to the cost.
Hex GRP is sometimes used and can save up to 80 KG on a typical build
- All have an aerodynamic pod that extends over the cab which is great for lighter items. The max load in here is about 75KG
- Many manufacturers use roof aerials and often this will protrude into the pod.
You can even add a sleeper pod instead to replace the aerodynamic pod with accesss from inside the load area.
- Most luton vans have a load length of approx 4 metres, but with a bespoke build you can go to maybe 4.8 metres, on some chassis especially if its been extended.
- Almost every luton van can have a tailift fitted. They typically weigh 150 KG which comes from the payload of the vehicle. We see Dell and Radcliffe used mostly. Tail lifts are not always a stock item so again its better to take a stock vehicle when you can. You can actually get a lightweight tailift for an additional cost that weights as little as 80 KG
- The rear doors are always roller shutter unless you are having a bespoke luton van built. Alternatives are bar doors and D Day doors. The latter split in half and serve as a loading ramp.
- Tie rails. As standard most luton vans come with a single row of tie rails. More can be added but its cheaper and faster for the customer to sort this themselves after delivery on a stock luton. Typically its £100 per row at any luton builder in the UK.
Its quite often impossible to send a luton back to the manufacturer for small extras to be done in a resonable timeframe.
- Some customer go for whats named a low loader luton van. The difference is that the chassis accomodates the wheels either side of the the floorplan so loading is easier. You dont normally need a tail lift then
Luton Van Upgrade. Please note that some of these upgrades can only be done as a bespoke build. A bespoke build will take at least 12 weeks from when the chassis is in stock. It can take much longer of course.
Easy Upgrades done even on stock luton vans for sale and lease
Most of these can be added to the finance. For things such as extra tie rails we ask you to find a local luton builder and will pay them to do additional work, as this is much much faster.
