No wonder they have stood the test of time and remain one of the most popular van choices with buyers and leasers alike.
A medium sized van is a short or medium wheelbase panel van that is compact enough to manoeuvre around busy city streets yet flexible enough to carry wide and heavy loads when required.
With average load space dimensions of 2.4 metres (length), 1.7 metres (width) and 1.4 - 1.65 metres (height), as well as side doors and rear-loading capabilities, medium panel vans are incredibly versatile, making them popular with joiners, plumbers, builders and other manual workers who tend to carry larger items.
