Hi all


I brought a small window cleaning round (1 day a week) using the pole feed system. It came with a van, but I know van insurance is very expensive last quote I did was £1500 (feels like a killer as I’m only paying 350 on the focus ST)


Anyway was thinking I need something that can hold a 500 litre tank (so half a ton), would it be cheaper to have a defender or a pickup truck? Or would the insurance be just as much as I am using it for business?


Was thinking a defender or pickup truck as I will be able to use my no claim bonus plus can still use as a normal car when tank is empty… i know it will cost a little more to start with but long term gains could be better?



And ideas?

Best you shop around for a better quote for your van as I pay about the same for both my van and car (approx £250 per year each).
