What small van do you suggest on a £3000 budget?

My niece has started her own business selling pet food. She now needs a small van to help with the deliveries. Her budget is £2000 - £3000. Admittedly, she's only going to get a high mileage van, but what would you recommend she looks at for that budget?

My recommendation would be the Mk1 Ford Transit Connect: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/ford/transit-con.../

Easy to drive, cheap run and plentiful on the used market, it's probably the best van for your niece's budget.
