VAN size question

Post by Playr_Juan »

Has anybody tried the Small Size Van from Home Depot to move 2 pins?

I have tried the high roof version (they call it medium size) and of course the pins can travel on their butts here, but I have never tried the small with 2 pins.

What I am after is feedback from someone with first hand experience with fitting 2 machines in the small size van. I have already checked the dimensions in paper - and they are questionable and often incorrect or impractical so first hand experience is what I need.

This is the Van in question:

I don’t know the answer to your question.

However, I want to add a bit of info for all those who want to rent a van at Home Depot to move pins. (OP, you likely now that already. This is for the benefit of others).

The fact that a specific store lists certain types of vans for rent DOES NOT mean that store has those vans. Better call to check before making plans. Some stores only have one type of van and it is not even on the website. Bottom line: I recommend calling first.

No need to buy anything.

Most vans or SUV should have 48" of inside space between the wheel wells.
(...the standard is to allow a 4' x 8' sheet of plywood to fit flat ).

My Honda Pilot had this, and my Dogde Caravan does too,
so I would expect the Rental van to have at least that much space.

A pin cabinet is about 22"-23" wide (unless you have a widebody pin) ,
so you "should" be able to fit 2 pins side-by-side.
(assuming you have the heads on alternate sides )

Good luck.

I once fit 4 early solid state pins in a Dodge minivan. But for WPC where the heads stay on the cabinet, the van above for 2 pins is fine.
