Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
According to an article published October 12th by Entrepreneur.com, cargo vans are growing in popularity as the primary work vehicle for business owners who need to reliably transport supplies and materials from worksite to worksite. The article explains that, while pick-up trucks have long been thought of as the standard work vehicle, new improvements to cargo vans have led to a rise in their use in the American workforce. According to the Los Angeles van rental agency, Van Rental Center, there are several key points mentioned in the article that illustrate why these vans are growing in popularity. Particularly, they note that many cargo vans have the edge over pick-up trucks in terms of mileage, space, and security.
- Better Mileage – While every vehicle is different, with weight and engine type being the most important consideration, Van Rental Center echoes the article’s point that cargo vans can often deliver better gas mileage than pick-up trucks. Part of the reason for this, Van Rental Center explains, is that many pick-up trucks are designed for towing rather than hauling on-board cargo. This necessitates an especially gas-guzzling engine, whereas cargo vans can have better mileage and still accomplish the needs of the renter.
- More Space – Van Rental Center also notes that, unless a pick-up truck has an especially extended bed, the majority of cargo vans offer more space. Part of this is due to the fact that those moving cargo in a van can stack everything high up, and be comforted knowing that once the door is closed, none of it will fall out. Van Rental Center explains that, although pick-up truck drivers can certainly stack items in the bed, they run the risk of it getting dislodged on the road.
- More Secure – The ability to know that supplies are locked up and secure rather than sitting in the open air is a tremendous security advantage, Van Rental Center explains. Thefts from the back of pick-up trucks constitute a larger percentage of vehicle related thefts, yet many could be prevented if supplies and equipment were able to be stored more safely within the vehicle.
In addition to cargo vans, Van Rental Center explains that they offer their renters a wide variety of passenger vans, ranging from a traditional family mini-van, to a full-sized 15 passenger van rental.
