I need a van with a long wheel base and high roof - what do you suggest?

I need to buy a new van for my business. It has to be long wheel base and high roof as we transport long fascia and soffit boards, as well as doors and windows. We would need to remove the bulk head and the passenger seats so we get a clear five metre length. Our choice as far as we are aware is either a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter or an Iveco Daily. Which is the best buy?

Both are very good vans. However, in this case, I’d recommend the Iveco Daily (4100L with the H3 roof) as this will provide a load area 5.1 metres long and 2.1 metres wide with the bulkhead in place. This should be more than enough to transport large windows and door, along with your soffit boards.

For more information on the Iveco Daily, see: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/iveco/daily-2014/
