Van A van is usually a box-shaped four wheel vehicle used for transporting goods or groups of people. It is about the same width and length as a large automobile, but usually taller and higher off the ground, also referred to as a light commercial vehicle. However, in North America, the term may be used to refer any truck with a rigid cargo body fixed to the cab, even up to large sizes.

If you are starting up a new business or need to replace your old van the first place to start is on-line. On the auction sites there is lots of information regarding current van makes and models to help with researching the right van for you. Some auction sites are free and some charge a minimal fee to join in the bidding. Online van auctions can be fun and exciting. You have access to sometimes thousands of vans all in one place and you can get into an exciting bidding war with other interested individuals. If paying a cheap car breakdown cover fee makes you want to reconsider, just think about gas prices and how much you'd be spending driving around van lots looking for that perfect van. Once you have narrowed down the make and model, simply enter this into a classified van action like auto trader, ebay or vanlocator and you will be given a list of vans to choose from.

Before you participate in an online van auction, familiarize yourself with a smaller online auction like ebay just to see how the process works. Online van auctions are similar to the smaller, ebay type auctions but the restrictions could be much more rigorous. You will also have to do your homework so you will know how much to bid on a van.

Here are some representatives of the most popular Vans today:

  • Ford Econoline offers an acceptable value for money. Despite there was no changes made in design since 1996, the roomy interior and a range of engine options to select from make this an interesting variant. The E-350 models, mainly designed for commercial use, are more powerful and can carry up to 15 people in the model with the extended length. The E-150 XL and XLT are the passenger van models that can seat up to 8 passengers. The interiors and the safety features though can have one wanting something better.
  • Chevrolet Express' range of options and outstanding seating capacity distinguish it among the other passenger vans. The Express can accommodate up to 15 people and has six options when it comes to the engine. The four models, the 1500, 2500, 3500 and 3500 EXT, can all be designed to be used both as work or passenger vans. Despite not having some of the chevy truck accessories that its counterparts do, it does the job of moving lots of people and cargo alike. The interior is made up of tough plastic and cloth, with fine finishing, and the controls are simple and straightforward.
  • Mazda 5, a true mini-van at heart, has the versatility to move between a cargo set-up and minivan-like seating. A new automatic transmission (5 speed) along with an auxiliary input jack that connects music players to the car stereo are in place in the new Mazda 5. It is one of the most affordable vehicles in its class. Available in the Touring, Grand Touring and Sport versions, they all have same four cylinder engines and are built on Ford's C1-platform. With a small turning radius, parking too is made easier.
  • GMC Savana has a range of options as well. With a trustworthy cutaway chassis though, the Savana serves well as a cargo van and a passenger van for personal use. Available in the 1500, 2500 and 3500 versions, each has a separate Cargo and Passenger version. The Cargo 2500 and 3500 and the Passenger 3500 come with extended wheelbases. Dull interiors, and a below par capacity when it comes to cargo space, are deterrent factors. Its factors of comfort, strength and ability to tow trailers along, are added feathers in its cap.
