Are you planning a trip to Florida and renting a van from Carl’s Van Rentals? Making the most out of the space in your rental is essential for a comfortable and organized journey. Whether traveling with family or friends or on a solo adventure, these four tips will help you maximize space in your rental van and make the most of your trip.

How to Maximize Space in Your Van Rental

1. Pack Strategically

Before loading up your rental van, take some time to plan out how you will pack your belongings. Start by packing heavier items at the bottom and lighter items on top to ensure stability during travel. Use packing cubes or compression bags to save space and organize your belongings. Consider what items you will need access to during the trip and pack them last for easy retrieval.

2. Use Storage Containers

Invest in collapsible storage containers or bins to keep smaller items organized and prevent them from rolling around in the back of the van. Utilize under-seat storage compartments if available, or secure bins with bungee cords to prevent shifting during travel. Label each container for easy identification of contents.

3. Consider a Tow-Hitch Luggage Carrier

Consider adding a tow-hitch luggage carrier to maximize the space inside your rental van. This option lets you securely transport additional luggage, gear, or bulky items outside the van, freeing up valuable interior space for passengers and in-hand necessities. Some of our vans come with a tow hitch, providing an easy and efficient way to expand your storage capabilities.

4. Fold Down the Seats

If your rental van has fold-down seats, consider folding them down to create additional cargo space. This can be especially useful for transporting larger items such as furniture, bicycles, or surfboards. Secure loose items with straps or bungee cords to prevent them from sliding around while driving.
