Are you looking for a trusted Truck Hire service but, you do not know what sized truck to rent?

If it is the first time that you are hiring a truck, you may think that it is a daunting task! And it is! If you hire the incorrect sized vehicle, you may end up having to do more loads than expected, costing you valuable time and money!

At Spartan Truck Hire, we stock various sized trucks, but the two most popular truck rental configurations are the 4 toners and 8 toners. Why is this? Well, these two sized vehicles are ideal for either small to medium loads or large loads.

4 Ton & 8 Ton Truck Hire

4-ton trucks – Our 4-ton trucks have load capacities of 4 tons and are perfect for moving furniture, FMCG, equipment or various other items. When choosing a 4-ton truck, you need to make sure that the volume of what you are moving will fit onto the vehicle. For example, the goods that you are transporting may only weigh 2 tons, but the volume is 30 cubic meters, then you will have to use a larger vehicle such as an 8 ton.

8-ton trucks – This sized truck is very popular as it is able to move various sized items. This sized vehicle is commonly used for house moves, FMCG, construction, and the list goes on.

We also stock various other sized trucks, including 1.6ton, 3ton, 5ton, 7ton, 14ton and 32ton.

In addition to the sized truck that you hire, you will also have to take the configuration into account. We stock:

  • Panel Vans
  • Curtain Sides
  • Drop Sides
  • Crane Trucks
  • Tail Lift Trucks
  • Refrigerated Trucks
