Commercial proposition

Here’s a not uncommon dilemma. As the farm’s old transport reaches the end of its days, how do you replace it? If buying new, a 1t pickup is the obvious choice. Or not, if you don’t fancy the size or aren’t too keen on the image. So how about a van version of a road-going 4x4? Most makers field one — and if you don’t need to carry bulk material, more than a single passenger or load it with a telehandler, take a look. Van versions have the original back seats taken out, the windows blocked off and a flat floor installed. As with pickups, business use allows VAT reclaim.
