    From your location listed I'm guessing you are on the "other side of the pond". I'm not real familiar with what's available over there. But no matter where you work, the work you do and the equipment you do it with determines what a suitable vehicle is for your work. I think a first step is to take notice of what others in your business locally use for a vehicle.

    Jeez, I thought you were from England with all those English-sounding town names.

    Ford, Chevy, Dodge, all good trucks, buy the one you like the looks of best.
