Volkswagen Transporter Pick-Up T2 (1967-1979)

As well as standard panel vans (and the camper conversions) the Transporter has always proved itself versatile with a variety of different bodystyles. More than 3.9 million T2 vans were produced over its lifetime and along with the delivery van the T2 was available as a Kombi, Micro Bus, Pick-up and Double-Cab Pick-up (Doka),

This Doka model was first registered in 1976 and was in daily use as a working vehicle until it finally got a well deserved retirement in 2009. It features extra seats behind the front row which are removable, giving you somewhere secure to store tools.

I think these cars are very convenient for transporting things. But my car was not enough for moving. So I decided to use a professional service The big plus was the fact that I didn't have to deal with packing my things. This greatly accelerated and simplified the moving process. And I realized that delegating this task was the right decision.
