Which is best a Small Hosting Company who can supply everything I will need to host my website or a Large Company where I may have to buy extra stuff (MS SQL etc.)I have an ecommerce website which is being built at the moment and having read these forums there seems to be problems with some of the larger companies and there overselling issues.
I have a good budget and once the site is up and running I expect to have alot of visitors.

It looks like you need to work with the hosting company on daily basis. This might not happen with some of the biggest web hosts, but you can still try. Do you have any specific server configurations that you want to be made? I would suggest you to send a list of requirements to a few web hosting companies so you should be able to compare what do they offer.
That is a great question and more often than not I prefer to work with smaller-sized companies who can meet my needs (technology and otherwise)customize their offering based upon by business demands, and offer a level of customer service that the big players cannot match. On the hosting and VPS front I have found such a company and cannot recommend them highly enough. From VPS to SharePoint they have exceeded my expectations. They are worth a look...3dgwebhosting.com.
This may sound corny, but you will do well to find someone large enough to take care of you...and small enough to WANT to take care of you.
Cheers I have found a small hosting company that I will use, I will keep you updated if anything bad happens but at the moment I am impressed 5 minutes to answer an email on my questions about the hosting.
