INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, USA, March 21, 2023 / -- A van is the most versatile type of vehicle. It has a characteristic cubic shape, resembling a cross between a truck and a passenger car in size. Cargo vans are gaining popularity in the US as industrial and domestic vehicles. Those planning to buy a used cargo van for business in Indiana may get lost in the diversity of options available for sale. Indy Auto Man, the Indianapolis used car dealership, offers a comprehensive overview of van types and purposes to facilitate the choice.

Van Body Types
The first van appeared in 1896, based on the eminent Daimler truck. However, these vehicles began to deliver products to large department stores only fifty years afterward.

Their target audience in Indiana includes, for example, people living in the countryside. They use the car for weekly shopping to transport a huge amount of food. Another broad segment of users is local entrepreneurs who care about the fast and safe delivery of goods sold.

Various well-known auto concerns are engaged in van production: from Ford to Mercedes, making the assortment of new and used cargo vans for sale really extensive.

Below is the structured review of the vans by body type.

All-metal vans
In such vehicles, the interior space is divided into two functional parts—the area for the driver and several passengers and a huge luggage compartment. The result is a minibus designed to transport all types of goods. Such vehicles are mainly used in various commercial industries to deliver products.

Cube vans
An upgraded version of the van offers separate cab and cargo areas. Such vehicles can boast a variety of frames and racks made to a standard size. They are used for the delivery of boxes and massive products, both in intracity and intercity formats.

Large businesses, individual entrepreneurs, and different-sized forwarding and courier brands dispose of the cube vans.

Frame vans
A frame van is recognizable almost immediately—especially if the car is equipped with a cubic or rectangular frame characteristic of this class. The basis of their design is a massive, extremely durable metal frame that can withstand significant mechanical stress.

Outside, the frame van is lined with all sorts of functional and decorative panels. Sheathing material differs—awnings, galvanized steel, plywood, polyurethane foam blocks, etc. The result is a simple, reliable, and versatile system.

Frameless vans
Here things are different—a kind of sandwich panel, consisting of several external and internal layers, acts as a frame. This structure provides excellent performance characteristics: tightness, low thermal conductivity, and physical stability.

In the bodies of such vehicles, it is possible to transport goods that require careful handling. In addition, the owner can supplement the cabin with climatic (mainly refrigeration) units for the transportation of products with a limited shelf life.

A minivan is a multipurpose vehicle with an impressive number of seats for accommodating passengers (up to 7 seats).

Vehicles of this type have the following advantages:
- a comfortable interior that allows transporting people even over the longest distances;
- ease of control—with all the visual massiveness, the vehicle does not require special skills from the driver;
- excellent maneuverability—a good start for using cars in densely populated urban areas like Indianapolis;
- affordable price—even small companies working in private transportation can buy several minivans.

Сombi vans
Combi or crew vans are universal vehicles capable of transporting passengers and delivering various types of cargo. These vans have a set of classic spring seats equipped with a folding mechanism. This filling allows, if necessary, to expand of the space and usable area of ​​the luggage compartment.

Pickup trucks
The most recognizable body type of a van is, of course, a classic pickup truck. A characteristic feature is an open cargo compartment directly behind the driver's cab. Pickups are supplied to the market with two-wheel or four-wheel drives.

Pickup trucks are among the most bought cars in Indiana. They combine a comfortable ride, in no way inferior to passenger cars, and impressive carrying capacity. The most popular model in general sales is the Ford F150.

The van for business in forwarding and logistics is a versatile and multipurpose tool capable of handling a variety of tasks. Those who want to buy the most appropriate commercial vehicle should visit the nearest dealership to get acquainted with the visual characteristics and operational properties of vans and trucks to make an informed decision.
