What vehicle do you need?

Generally if you feel you need a cargo vehicle because your personal car isn’t quite big enough, then you’re probably after a ute, 4WD tray or perhaps a delivery van. If you’re thinking bigger, then you should probably be looking at a tautliner or tray.

Utes

The ever-familiar ute (that’s Australian for “utility vehicle”) is the perfect vehicle for moving moderate amounts of material over both short and long distances. Best of all, these can be driven on a regular driver's licence that is valid for driving in Australia.


There are a few ute versions to keep in mind, with one of the biggest differences being in the cab. If you only require space for one or two people, a single cab is sufficient, however if you are going to need space for more than two people, then a dual cab will be required. Remember in Australia it is illegal to ride in the storage portion of a ute when the vehicle is in motion, so if there are more than two people, a dual cab is essential.


Utes also come in both regular and 4WD configurations, with the latter perhaps a better fit if more rugged driving conditions are anticipated.

Vans

As with 4WDs, moving vans come in a few varieties, related to both size and purpose. Size-wise, vans come in a one-tonne (standard), and a larger two-tonne van which can carry more cargo. While the exact capacity can vary depending on the make and model of a van, a standard one-tonne moving van will carry between four and five cubic metres of cargo, while a larger van has a capacity around the ten cubic metres mark.


An additional option with vans is a refrigerated version which will carry about the same amount as a standard van, but will keep your goods nice and chilled.


An important note is that with hired moving vans generally seat only two people and it is illegal in Australia to ride in the rear of the van while the vehicle is in motion.

Trucks

Trucks for hire come in two primary versions — a tray truck and a tautliner — with each coming in a variety of sizes. The main difference between a tray truck and a tautliner is that the former does not have a permanent roof and sides, while the latter does. With a tautliner, the cover can be winched taut (hence the name) once the vehicle has been loaded, while with a tray truck, there is no permanent cover — though a cover can be attached to protect your cargo. If you are transporting enough goods to require a truck of some description, a tautliner is a better option if you are travelling long distances due to weather considerations.


Both types of trucks come in a variety of sizes, with around four, six, seven, and nine metres being fairly standard sizes. Depending on the size of the truck, drivers will require an MR or HR licence to drive the vehicle.

People movers and speciality vehicles

If you plan to move people rather than boxes, then a people mover is what you need to hire. These typically come in two main configurations — those that carry twelve or less passengers and those that carry more. A people mover with a capacity of twelve or less passengers can be driven with a regular licence valid for driving in Australia, while those with a capacity of 12 to 20 require a LR licence and 21 or more requires a MR licence.


If you’re after a more specialist vehicle, tipper trucks (trucks with a tray that can be elevated at a slope), crane trucks (a truck with a crane attached to it for loading cargo), and even prime movers are available for hire. These often have licence restrictions, and with the exception of some tipper trucks, can not be driven on a regular driver's licence.

Frequently asked questions

On hiring a ute, van and truck in Australia

  • What is a commercial vehicle

    Generally speaking, a commercial vehicle is a 4WD, truck, ute, van or other specialty vehicle whose primary purpose is the transportation of goods or people. They can range in size and purpose from a small flatbed ute useful for moving that little bit too much to fit in your car, through to larger trucks and buses designed for moving all manner of goods — or people.

  • What sort of commercial vehicle should you hire?

    When it comes to hiring a commercial vehicle it is important to get the right tool for the job, as there’s no point hiring a ten tonne refrigerated truck when all you want to do is move three lawn mowers to your new residence.

    The first question is to consider what your licence will allow you to hire.

    Secondly, consider how much capacity you need in your commercial vehicle. For small jobs, often a ute is more than sufficient, but if you’re perhaps moving residence, then a tray or tautliner (which come in a variety of sizes) may be a better choice. If you have specialised needs, say refrigeration, then you’ll need a commercial vehicle that can deliver that — a refrigerated van for example.

    Another consideration is if you are not needing to transport goods a vast distance, and are comfortable making multiple trips, then a smaller commercial vehicle might be just as good a fit — and will most likely be more affordable to hire. On the other hand, if you are driving longer distances, then it is prudent to make sure your goods are protected from the elements, in which case a covered ute, enclosed van, or tautliner truck might be a better option.

  • What sort of licence is required to hire a ute, van & truck in Australia?

    There are two criteria to keep in mind when hiring a larger moving, delivery and cargo vehicle — the number of people the vehicle can carry and its weight.

    Any vehicle that can carry more than 12 people (including the driver) requires a Light Rigid (LR) Licence, while a vehicle that can carry 21 or more people requires a Medium Rigid (MR) Licence.

    Weight-wise, any vehicle weighing more than three tonnes of cargo requires a MR licence, while anything weighing more than eight tonnes requires a Heavy Rigid (HR) licence.

  • If you only have a regular driver's licence, what is the largest moving or cargo vehicle you can hire?

    Any commercial vehicle which weighs less than three tonnes and can carry a maximum of 12 people (including the driver) can be hired with a regular full driving licence that is valid for driving in Australia.

  • What documents are required to hire a commercial vehicle?

    While this depends on the size and capacity of the vehicle, at a minimum, drivers need to be aged 21 or over, possess a licence valid for driving in Australia, a credit card, and proof of their address.

  • Should you hire a ute or a van?

    It really depends on what sort of material you want to move, and particularly how bulky it is. Utes are well suited to large boxes of mixed sizes — typical when one is moving residence. Vans, thanks to their enclosed roof, have a very strict limit on the height of goods that you wish to load into them, and their storage area also typically has a narrower width than that of a ute. In summary, when you are comparing a similar-sized van and ute, you will almost certainly fit more into a ute.

  • Are there extra charges associated with moving, delivery, and cargo vehicles?

    It depends, and in some cases there can be. For example, if you require equipment to load your vehicle — something as simple as a trolley or ramp, or as complex as a hydraulic lift — then these may well attract additional charges to the baseline vehicle hire charge.

  • Are there other considerations when hiring a commercial vehicle?

    Most trucks and vans are bigger than a regular passenger car, and in some cases the vehicle’s additional height means you might not be able to drive the same route you would in a regular car.

    Height restrictions are particularly important when it comes to trucks and bridges, and it is important to be aware of the height of your vehicle and to watch out for lower bridges and parking areas that you may not fit under or into.

    Aside from bridges and low roofs, trucks and vans are bigger and will not perform as well on tight corners, hair-pin bends, and other narrow roads. So you will need to be aware of these factors when driving around.
