What are the best cheap 4x4 pick-ups?

I need to spend some time over a few months clearing a house on occasional visits. Skip hire is ridiculously expensive so I am thinking of buying an oldish high mileage pickup or 4x4 for a couple of grand and then selling it again after I have finished. Do you have any recommendations?is kind of thing? Reliability will be important.

Pick-up choices will be rather limited for £1500 to £2000. Most will have sky high mileage and be rather tatty. You might be better buying a compact panel van, something like the Ford Transit Connect, Citroen Berlingo or Vauxhall Astravan might suit your needs.

For our list of top 10 small vans for under £5000, see: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-top-10s/top-10-small-use...k
