Whether you need a van, or a truck - at Buchbinder we offer you a variety of options for your specific needs. Here we would like to give you an overview of the different vehicle and driver's license classes for vans and trucks, as well as their requirements and regulations.
In most cases, one drives a van or truck only for a special occasion and therefore rather rarely. One uses it for the transport after a purchase in the building market or furniture store or even for a move.
Due to the lack of routine in handling a transporter or truck, the drive can quickly become a real challenge. In order to get safely to your destination, you should think about some things beforehand and prepare the planned trip well.
You should start by taking a look at our overview to find out which vehicle you are allowed to drive with your driver's license. We also give you 5 tips for driving a van / truck that will help you get to your destination safely.
1 Vehicle pick up
If you are inexperienced in driving a van or truck, then let our staff at the station show you the rented vehicle in detail. Clarify all open questions before you get into the vehicle. After getting in, first familiarize yourself with the functions of the vehicle and adjust the side and rear view mirrors correctly.
During your trip, always keep in mind that a van / truck is higher, wider and longer than a car. To familiarize yourself with the vehicle, you should make a few rounds in the parking lot of the rental station before participating in road traffic. If your vehicle has a navigation system, use it to plan your route. You can set the dimensions of the vehicle here and thus avoid driving a route that is not suitable for the rented vehicle due to its height, width or weight.
In addition, it is important to keep the following points in mind: Increase in overtaking distance due to slower acceleration due to the higher weight, increase in braking distance due to the higher weight of the vehicle, keep sufficient distance to other road users
There are also a number of things to consider when driving a van / truck in terms of speed:
Choose a speed that allows you to brake in time whenever you need to
Be especially careful in curves
Adjust the speed so that the load arrives safely
Inform yourself about the maximum permissible speed of the vehicle before starting the journey
When maneuvering with your rental vehicle, be sure to seek assistance. Since vans and trucks do not have a rear window, you must rely on the outside mirrors, which limits your field of vision when backing up and can quickly cause you to miss things or people. To prevent this, have someone outside the vehicle help you by hand signals and verbal commands. A temporary no-parking zone is required for loading and unloading. You can easily apply for this at your respective city council or public order/road traffic department.
Since your vehicle is higher, wider and longer than a passenger car, you should drive especially careful and always be aware of your surroundings to avoid accidents. An adapted speed and an anticipatory driving style also help to avoid sharp braking maneuvers.
