    I just use my estate car at the moment. Not really needed a van yet.

    I'm in the wife's 206SW at the moment as my van blew up before my hols - its amazing what you can get in a smaller vehicle if you are pushed the drawback is I also do a lot of plastering and it is now full of cr*p! She is going to kill me!
    I need a new one and am looking at a mid size van with the plastering work I need to get bigger boards in.

    Go to homebase and get yourself a small tarpaulin. Costs about 4 and they really help to keep the back clean.

    Have an estate aswell,perfect with the roof rack for any boards.No need to rush out and buy a van till you have the cash,some lads have got vans on the never never and put themselves in debt before they've even had there first job.

    Cheers GG - I carry loads of sheeting but being a pillock I thought I'd only use wife's car for a day which turned into a week car now requires a major valet!
    Seats - footwells - typical tiler/platerer sh*t just seems to follow me around!

    Ive got a tranny connect LWB high roof which is superb but not cheap, my mate has an LDV Cub, which is really a Nissan Vanette and its a great van, high roof and roomy and very reliable and not an expensive van, only downside is they are a bit gutless.

    Yea the connect is what I was looking at - economy has to be a priority especially when you do a lot of quoting jobs/emergency runs to wickes etc. - thats where the wife's 206 diesel comes in handy. I used to run a 3 litre auto bm which cost more to get to a lot of quotes than any profit on them!
