In Topic: Im Thinking Of Buying A Ford Van, Help Please.

Hello and I ended up getting a VW caddy, looks pretty rough but I'm thinking of painting it. I do need a much larger van. The Caddy size vans are good for moving small items around but even a 2 seater small sofa stuck out the back :(
I just got it through its MoT so it has 12 months on it.
I would like a van that can move sofas and fridgefreezers etc.
I'm pretty skint now though so can't afford a new van but I will try and save up for one. Not a clue what I can sell my VW Caddy 1.9SDI for :(

Thanks for your info, I have been looking at Connects and Transits. I think the Nissan etc would cost a fortune to replace parts and the fuel econamy is a bit of a stinger etc. For a connect is it best to try and get the highest PS modle I can and same with transit T(number)
I had a look at Vito and yes they do cost a arm and a leg ha. I imagine replacing parts would cost a lot more than a Ford also.

Ah ok. Handy to know. So are Vitos any good?
I'll have a look at them. I don't have a clue about vans as I never thought I would want or need one,
I've been in a few transits which the owners say are good but I've never driven one.
Since driving I have found out that having the extra carry space is very handy as I've helped move and moved myself using Cars only which is a right pain.
I don't really want to spend more than 1.500.
I could start off smaller with a connect or something but I don't know how well they hold there value. I would like to do some removals and maybe make a small business out of it and see how it goes.

Thank you all for you help, you have all been a great help and I will carry on looking and taking all your advice with me. One last question is what van can fit a fridge/freezer or sofa in? I ask this because if I need to help move someones fridge/freezer or sofa I can as they are usually the biggest things to move that people struggle with :)
Iv never seen in the back of a connect so im unsure if it could fit a fridge/freezer, sofa etc.
Thanks again for your help. Extreamly greatful for all your help and info :)

Ok thanks to you both for the info. I will try and find out about the connect vans as i will try and find which one has half decent MPG for a van.
If I do get one without reverse sensors is it worth installing aftermarket reverse sensors? I dont know how hard they are to install or how good they will be..

Is there any models I should avoid?
Very greatful for your help and fast replys.
