Hello fellow Berlingo lovers. I am a Berkshire-based courier owner driver. I bought my first Berlingo in 2004 when I became a courier. I took advice on the best van to buy for the job, and I bought a 2.0 HDi with sliding doors each side. It lasted me 7 years, completing over 298,000 miles before dying on me on the way back from Scotland! So impressed was I, I bought another, but this time a 1.6 HDi that had been specially made for the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, and had raised and strengthened suspension to deal with the undulating ground that the vehicle was due to traverse over. In three years, it had travelled just 17,000 miles, which is about 5 months worth of travelling to me! I am looking forward to taking a full and active part on this site. Best wishes, Jon.
