Default Urgent boot space advise Pleeeese

Hi all. I'm in such a mess and no time!! :-(

At this moment I own a 508 saloon 12 plate bought 3 months ago.
(I do taxi work for special needs)

Just been offered a contract for 24 months but need to take 7 boxes daily
H 53cm x W 33cm x D 26cm. AND I guess won't fit :-(

The dealer ship as a matter of urgency has offered me a straight swap for
12plate 308 1.6hdi SW ACCESS.
MY QUESTION IS could I get my boxes in the 308SW ? Is it a ok swap ? Any advise would help. Thank u

Not overly familiar with the 508 boot but have you actually done a mock up to see if they will fit? Tow bar luggage rack/box?

I'm not convinced the straight swap is that good a deal to be honest - but if needs must its a quick and easy deal.

the internal dimensions of the 308 sw are here you can work out from the dimensions if your boxes will fit,
as for if its a good deal to swap? depends on how much the contract is worth to you and your options i suppose

Thanks guys your both right in what you say.
I bought the 508 on looks and didn't really give any thought to my business which was stupid!
I have experienced already a struggle in getting a family of 4 and cases in the 508 as just a boot and not hatchback Also a emergency trip to the vets and the dog had to sit on back seat :-0
If you drive a 308 do you find the boot space good? As looking at pictures it looks like a small estate?
Re the size on the websites I can't work it out for the life of me

Did post this on your other thread but this has more replies.
Each of your boxes is about 45 litres, and the 308 SW has (according to Parkers) a 570 litre boot without even folding the seats down.
Sounds like it'd easily fit.
