    You would struggle to get a smaller van that can carry that weight, to carry 650lts you will need a van with a payload of a minimum of 1000kg.

    I'm sure you could fit a 500lt in a dispatch or expert.. Would you need 650lt for yourself?

    Depending what model of dispatch you get the payload of 1000kg - 1200kg which is good for a smallish van.

    Anything smaller you are only looking around around 600kg.

    I use a berlingo and carry 400lts of water. That's enough for me to work a full day, between £250-£300 a day.
