Luton



Check out some of the images in the gallery that illustrate previous Luton Box Van body builds by Vans North West Ltd.

Luton Box Van bodies are bespoke hand-built cargo bodies on manufacturer chassis, subsequent to the chassis leaving the chassis manufacturer assembly factory. Because the Luton body is constructed subsequent to leaving the manufacturer assembly factory, the dimensions of a Luton Box body can be tailored to the user’s exact requirements.

Luton Box Van bodies are general high volume van bodies used to carry volume, rather than weight. Although a Luton Box can carry weights of over 1 metric tonne, the general loads have a bias towards bulky volume.

Because the Luton Box Van is built to square dimensions, they tend to be a more versatile option to maximise volume. Most Luton bodies come with solid fixed side panels of either aluminium or GRP, with a translucent GRP roof to keep loads secure and dry unlike open back bodies like Dropsiders or Tippers, and most come with additional cargo space above the cab, this is called a Luton Head and is where the body name is derived from.

Most Luton Van bodies only have access to the rear via a roller shutter, wide lathe shutter, or traditional twin rear doors. Whilst Luton bodies generally have no side access because of the nature of the construction being hand-built, side access doors can be built in if desired.

Some Luton Box bodies can be built on low floor constructed chassis to alloy easy loading, however there are alternative load handling lifts available for all Luton bodies and your Van Consultant at Vans North West will be able to advise and specify the correct loading lifts for your specific need.

Your Van Consultant is able to advice on the design, weights and dimensions of your bespoke Luton Box body, and is qualified to provide advice that will not breach the UK construction and use regulations for operating a Light Commercial Vehicle.
