    Default Delivery Vehicle

    Hi there, we're in the market for replacing our Vito due to old age...
    Any idea which delivery vehicle offers the most space for goods (covered) for a code EB?
    A reliable vehicle just for local up to 20km trips in and around Cape Town.
    Hyundai H100 type perhaps?

    Have a look at a Nissan NV200. More spacious than it looks, built in cage behind driver with flold-down section over passenger seat for longer loads, and access doors from both sides as well as the back.

    One thing to watch is the double wheels and double axels, you get hit hard at the tolls.

    Vito's are good, stick with it.
    Current off-road vehicles:
    * 1978 Land-Cruiser HJ40 DIESEL P/U "SHREK", BFG 31x10.5 muds.
    * 1994 Land-Cruiser J70 DIESEL P/U, my truck recovery vehicle. 15000 warn winch. And 3.5ton hand winch. Back full of appropriate sized recovery gear. BFG31x10.5 muds.

    * 2014 Land-Cruiser LX V8 76 DIESEL STATION WAGON, BFG's 285 all terrain. I have a spare 5000 warn winch I might fit.
    * 1988 HILUX TOYOTA 4x4 D/C, BFG all terrain.
    * 1999 TOYOTA 4x4 HILUX 2700i D/C, BFG 31x10.5 all terrain.
    * 2011 HILUX 4X4 P/U, BFG 31x10.5 all terrain.
    * 1999 PAJERO 3.5 V6 Mitsubishi (sorry not a Toyota), BFG 31x10.5 all terrain.
    * 4x4 trailer, 1987, BFG all terrain. * GSA 1200 BMW ADVENTURE LC [liquid cooled} 2016, (off road bike) the closest motorbike to a land cruiser. * a GS800, 2011. * AND a Massey Fergusson 375 tractor. Not BFG's and not a 4x4.

    The Vito is great, but something with more load space would be nice. Looking at used - budget under R200k

    If you are looking at R200k for a used vehicle, what would it cost you to rebuild the engine, box, bodywork and suspension of the Vito to make it viable?
    That way, you have a known entity, not someone else's potentially inherited issues.

    Donít take offense but have you looked at the Mahindra Bolero Maxitruck?

    Unless you have to drive it, in which case I apologize

    Hyunday H100 and panel van like Vito, Renault, Fiat, Ford Transit... are designed for different purpose. Panel vans have very many options like side doors on both sides, 270 degr opening rear door, table for the driver, height, length, engine options... Panel van is much faster to load and off load than H100 in many cases. You need to figure out what you need. With lower productivity wrong vehicle costing R100 000 less can cost you a lot in a short time span. There is a lot to consider. This includes what type of a person is using it. Specific type employees will deliver only the number of deliveries they have come custom to. If it is 5 places today it will be 5 places even if the vehicle would be "beam me up" type. Where they spend the rest of the day is a mystery.

    If you have an employee driving have monitoring system. Good change that it pays the cost in one month. We have a case where speedo, e.g. km meter somehow keeps breaking. Petrol had a very high "evaporation" ratio...
