Good morning everyone,
I am trying to get a truck for a small pick up / delivery business.

And it seems that there are plenty of options available, but at the same time it is very hard to choose.

After decent amount of time spent on researching the box trucks, I've came to a conclusion that I need to get either a Freightliner M2 106 24ft box or a Isuzu NRR 20ft. box.

Which one should I pick? Which one you guys think is better? Your valuable input will be very much appreciated.

Isuzu Is around 3k cheaper. Here are the details.

Both vehicles were used for leasing to the big co.

Isuzu NRR 2007 with 190,00 miles l 5.2L I4 Turbo with Aisin transmission

Freightliner 2013 with 260,000 miles ISB 6.7 with Allison transmission

Any experience owning or maintaining those trucks??

Thank you very much for any help!!

There are still too many variables to make a recommendation.
Most importantly, how much weight will you be transporting and do you need to be dock high?

I am not looking to transport anything out of ordinary heavy, mostly furniture / light equipment etc. No, no need for the truck to be a dock high.

I've driven both, and all things being equal, i found the freightliner more comfortable.
