In 2018, there were over 30 million small businesses in the United States. If you’re one of those, you need to make sure you’re standing out from the crowd.

For many, that means having a custom cargo van.

But, before you get to the customization, you need to pick the best cargo van for small business owners. Fortunately, there are a few options so you’re sure to find the ideal one for you.

Keep reading to find out more about the best trucks and vans for your small business.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Also sold as a Freightliner, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has been one of the top-selling cargo vans for businesses since 2001. It has several size options so you can get the one that fits your needs best.

Specs:

  • Cargo area length: 137 to 194 inches
  • Fuel: Gas or diesel
  • Towing capacity: 7,500 pounds
  • Payload capacity: 4,519 to 5,243 pounds

Overall, this van has a nice variety of options and its modern design ensures it won’t go out of style anytime soon.

Ford Transit

Being sold as a replacement for the Econoline van, the Ford Transit also comes with numerous options to suit any business needs. So, it should be no surprise that many small business owners choose this cargo van.

Specs:

  • Cargo area length: 220 to 264 inches
  • Fuel: Gas or diesel
  • Towing capacity: 7,500 pounds
  • Payload capacity: maximum of 4,650 pounds

One of the other reasons to consider a Ford is the number of dealerships available which ensure you get back on the road quickly if you run into a problem.

Ram ProMaster

The Ram ProMaster focuses on fuel efficiency which means it can’t tow quite as much as some of the others on this list. But, if you don’t need to haul that much, this could be a great fit.

Specs:

  • Cargo area length: 105 to 160 inches
  • Fuel: Gas
  • Towing capacity: 5,100 pounds
  • Payload capacity: 4,440 pounds

Another advantage of this van is that it’s a front-wheel-drive which can improve it’s manuverability around turns.

Ford Transit Connect

Another Ford model, the Transit Connect is a compact cargo van. It’s ideal for urban small businesses that need more fuel economy than cargo space. It’s also more reasonably priced than many other cargo vans.

Specs:

  • Cargo area length: 71 to 87 inches
  • Fuel: Gas or diesel
  • Towing capacity: 2,000 pounds
  • Payload capacity: 1,600 pounds

If your small business requires a small amount of cargo space, then the Ford Transit Connect could be the right van for you.

Nissan NV

Although the Nissan NV is aimed at private owners, this could be advantageous to business owners as it’s priced lower than most commercial vehicles. The only drawback is that it also lacks cargo space.

Specs:

  • Cargo area length: 71 to 87 inches
  • Fuel: Gas or diesel
  • Towing capacity: 2,000 pounds
  • Payload capacity: 1,600 pounds

Something else that sets this cargo van apart is that it comes with a 5-year/100,000-mile warranty which is more than the others on our list.
