How to Select the Right Cargo Van to Buy or Lease
Are you in the market for a cargo van for your business? Before you run out and buy the latest cargo van for sale, you might want to give some thought to how you plan to use it. You may be able to save your company money by buying a used van or leasing one when you need it. Here are a few things to consider before you buy or lease a cargo van.
Assess Your Usage – How Frequently do you Need a Cargo Van?
How often do you transport cargo for your business? If the answer is less than twice a week, you may want to think about leasing a cargo van rather than investing in one that sits idle. On the other hand, if most of your business is on the go, you might need to buy a fleet of vans for your daily use. Buying new versus used is another factor that may best be determined by how often you plan to use it.
What Kind of Payload Will Your Cargo Van be Hauling?
Most cargo vans are either short or full-sized, and they may serve different needs. A shorter truck can be more fuel-efficient and easier to maneuver through narrow, busy city streets. A full-sized van may be more useful if you have bulky or a lot of cargo to load and deliver. The size or volume of what you transport in your cargo van will help you decide the size of vehicle that works best for you.
Other Details and Features to Consider
Other options that will help you decide on which cargo van is right for your business include:
- Safety features such as parking assistance
- Door configuration for easier loading and unloading, and
- Roof height to accommodate your cargo
Cargo vans are definitely not a one-size-fits-all kind of transportation, so you’ll want to can focus on the features that suit your needs.
