I've never seen a job listed for 'Estate Car'. Does that vehicle type really need to be there?

May I suggest it is removed and replaced with 'Midi van'. I've done one job from here that was listed as 'SWB Transit' but the company actually classed it as a midi van job, just as well because that is what I would class mine as. If they could have listed it as such, maybe more owner drivers with such vans would have quoted on it.

I think both estate car and midi van over complicates things tbh

Small van, transit, sprinter... simples

In the past I would have agreed with you but I can see the point of the midi van category now (now that I own one of course). There are lots of vans now that are far more capable than the typical small van but still can't fit two pallets in. So, a job that is one pallet, 600kg would go in such a van but you would have to list it as SWB Transit.
