Peugeot Partner Van Review

Peugeot take Partner off the beaten track IF you don’t know much about light vans, you’d be mistaking for think the Partner was one of them new pick-ups from the good old US of A which are all the rage at the minute. But don’t worry, nobody’s going to want you to say ‘Howdy, Partner’, a polite hello (or should that be bonjour) will do. The Peugeot Partner has been knocking about for a good while now and is a solid performer in the light van market. In a bid to make it a bit greener and nudge it slightly off the beaten track, Peugeot have made a few tweaks to this latest...

Vauxhall Movano Minibus Review

How ‘Mo’ can you go? I don’t get all this Movember malarkey. Okay, so it raises money for charity, but to me it just seems to be to be an excuse for some blokes to look a bit scruffy for a few weeks. Besides, it’s hard to take anyone seriously when they look like one of The Village People. I went through my moustache phase years ago, so my hairy top lip days are well and truly behind me. If I had my way, I’d round up all this temporary tache toters up, chuck them into a van and take them on an extended trip – and I think I’ve found just the vehicle – the Vauxhall Movano...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak Review

Take a Walk on The Wild Side For those of us of a certain vintage, I can recall a time when we were actively (maybe that’s not the right word) encouraged to eat chocolate bars. Nobody was too concerned with obesity back then, in fact we even reckoned chocolate bars were good for you. After all, we were once told that a Mars a day helped you ‘work, rest and play’. They may not be allowed to come up with the same boast these days, but this new Ford Ranger Wildtrak can – well, maybe not the rest bit, that’s just a bit too boring for this beast. Ford Ranger Wildtrak – Strong But...

Mitsubishi ASX 4Work Van Review

Mitsubishi ASX 4Work, is it worth the dosh? WHITE Van Man doesn’t get out much at the weekends. I’m usually knackered after a week’s running here, there and everywhere. No, for me it’s usually a Saturday night curry, a few tins and a night in front of the telly – the X Factor (the wife’s choice, honestly) followed by Match of the Day. Still, I do get the chance to get the glad rags on from time to time (usually when I’ve saved a bit of dosh on my van insurance) for a night down the boozer with the lads. Most of the night’s entertainment comes from taking the mick out of...

Isuzu D-Max Van Review

Isuzu D-Max – Things sure are picking up I have to admit, I have flirted with the idea of splashing out on a pick-up. Okay, so it might not suit my line of work, but there’s plenty of blokes out there who rave about them. I thought there’d be no way you’d get a builder out of his trusty panel van, but I know a fair few of them now who pitch up at the site at something which wouldn’t look out of place on a massive Texan ranch. Me, I only got as far as forking out for a pair of cowboy boots which made me look more like I was on my way to do some line-dancing. Needless to say,...

Allied Vehicles Peugeot eBipper Van Review

Battery-powered van but will your wallet take a battering? IT can be like landing an airplane in our gaff sometimes. Even after lights out, which is usually nice and early because I’m up at the crack of dawn (thats not the missus name by the way…), our bedroom is lit up by green, yellow and red flashing lights. Honestly, I think the Mrs is trying to beckon in a passing 747 with all those lights. Turns out, it’s all those chargers flashing away. Phone, iPod, tablet (no, not a couple of aspirin) all need their power fix on a regular basis. It’ll soon be like that with...
