Though, there are not really any nation-wide truck dealerships in the UK as there is with car dealerships (Peugeot, Ford etc.), the mainstream brands will normally offer larger vans in the upper limits of their range. Mercedes Benz, for example, offer the Viano and Vauxhall, the New Movano. There are, however, many local dealerships which do sell trucks, commercial or private.

A good place to start looking for truck equipment is by buying the trucks themselves as they will have all the equipment on them in the first place and may come with spares or a promise of discounts on return. To this end, Truck locator (.co.uk) is a very good place to start. Here, one can locate any of a dozen or so different types of truck (DAF etc), look at truck news, read truck reviews and subscribe to the associated magazine. There are also several other sites such as this, including Chris Hodge trucks (.co.uk) and Truck region (.com).
