What is the difference between a dropside van and a tipper van?
While both dropside and tipper vans for sale offer similar benefits to your business, they are actually two different types of vans.
What is a tipper van?
Commonly used in construction and agriculture, a new tipper van is designed to transport loose materials, such as gravel, sand, or dirt. The defining feature of this van is its ability to tilt the cargo bed and tip the contents all in one go, reducing unloading time.
What is a dropside van?
A dropside van can also be used for transporting loose materials, as well as large and bulky items, for a variety of jobs. The major difference is that the cargo bed does not necessarily tip - instead, the sides of the open cargo area can be lowered or dropped down for easier loading and unloading.
How much do dropside van and tipper van leases cost?
