Need a low cost running car, with a large boot for my cycling business - what do you advise?

I've started my own up-cycling business and I don't want to use a third party. My largest piece is 54-inches long and 45-inches high and pretty heavy, so needs to be able carry considerable weight. Considered a pick up truck but heard they are costly to run and it would also have to be a double cab. Hope you can help advise me.

You're only talking 4' 6" here, but 3' 9" high. I think your best bet is a Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner, Renault Kangoo, Fiat Doblo, Mercedes-Benz Citan, Vauxhall Combo, Ford Connect van or combi (with windows). All have low load floors. Combis such as the Berlingo Multispace tend to be cheaper to insure and the rear seats can be folded or totally removed.
