Can Vans Meet the Demands of a Construction Site?

The short answer is: yes. The longer answer is: yes, absolutely. Vans of various models and sizes can handle most of what a construction site will throw at them. Here’s a quick look at 3 main Renault models.

The Renault Master: jack-of-all-trades, Master of many

The versatility of the Renault Master Van is legendary. With off-the-shelf conversions including dropside, tipper, box and Luton, there are endless fetching, carrying and delivering jobs that the Master can handle better than a heavy truck. Bricks, sand, lime, piping, and timber all need to be collected from the depot, delivered, and conveyed around the site in a vehicle that is both easy to handle on the road and maneuverable on-site.

The Renault Trafic for construction site flexibility

The Renault Trafic Van is ideal for building site contractors. Plasterers, electricians and carpenters all need to transport their gear to and around the site. The Trafic offers capacious loading volume, with 5.2 m3 available on the SWB version, 6 m3 on the LWB, and up to 8.6 m3 on high roof variants. The Trafic can carry 3 Euro pallets in the SWB version as standard, and the Crew Van variant will provide safe and comfortable transport for 6 people, with space for equipment.

The Renault Kangoo for construction site economy and adaptability

A compact van like the Kangoo is also indispensable, whether as a Crew Van for 5 or as a robust delivery runabout that can fetch cargo on-site or in city traffic swiftly and economically. The Crew Van Cab version, which sits 5, is an ideal best-of-both-worlds vehicle thanks to its multi-positional bulkhead: it sits behind the rear seats when you drive crew to the site, and comes forward to protect driver and passenger when you fold the seats down to enjoy a large loading space.
