A van that’s equipped with a tail lift makes light work of transporting large goods and heavy appliances. Luton vans are popular with our customers, especially people moving house, because they’re the largest van you’re allowed to drive on a standard UK driving licence.
The isolator switch turns the tail lift on and off. This switch can be found in the cab area to the right of the steering wheel. It will light up red when it's switched on.
Using the exterior control, which is located to the rear of the vehicle, press the button next to the downwards arrow. Hold the button until the platform has been lowered by about 30cm.
Lift up the catch to unfold the lower loading platform. You’ll find the catch to the left-hand side of the platform.
Using the lever at the top left-hand side of the top hatch, carefully lift it up until it fixes in place.
If you’re hiring one of our Luton vans and you’d like some more reassurance, the team at the branch will be more than happy to help you.
