Passenger Vans Are the New Luxury

The definition of luxury is highly subjective and you may define it as something you can afford which isn’t your necessity while for others it is just a desire they need to fulfill. Either way, luxury is not something you’d want to give up on in today’s times. If you own a car, you’d rather have a spacious one to be comfortable whether you’re traveling short distances or ever plan a road trip with your pals. But the question pops when there are just too many of them. But we, here at Nations Bus, have the answer to that. It’s passenger vans!

We have got passenger vans on sale with the best prices and a great variety. For the transport of a large number of people with great comfort, passenger vans are the best fit especially if you can buy them at great prices and of the best quality. Whether you’re traveling with a small group of people or a larger one there’s availability for passenger vans for varied sizes of groups at your disposal. For a comfortable and reliable trip, we’ve got vans ranging from 8 to 19 passengers on sale which you can immediately buy or have a specialty unit built with your specific colors and specifications.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our business with vans is that there’s nothing in the world that brings people together like traveling together does. Everyone on the tour can chat and spend quality time together while commuting and get to know one another. We provide 10, 15, and 19 passenger vans for larger groups that come with a number of amenities and great comfort which are suitable for all groups of people. Options can include wheelchair lifts, TVs, and internet. So, whether it’s for the transit of your hotel’s guests, senior citizens’ long trips or children’s picnics, our passenger vans are the most reliable mode of transit for your journeys to be fun and comfy whilst experiencing the luxury of the spacious vehicles. We have a supply of the perfect kind of vans for every occasion at our gigantic inventory.

New or used, all passenger vans and buses are thoroughly inspected of their conditions and longevity before being put up for sale. We take our customers’ safety and security as our topmost priority. Moreover, we have a huge team of people who can assist you in picking the best passenger van according to your needs. For your best advantage, you can also customize the vans as per your requirements if you are the organizer of the tour and plan on advertising your business among your customers and beyond. It’s a great business strategy that we not only recommend but help you gain it in the best possible way as well. Our services extend from helping you pick the right vans to give you the best prices and delivering your ride at your doorstep. Where traveling long distances and buying plane tickets can be very expensive, you’ll find our passenger vans far more affordable to transport large groups of people. And, considering the current sale for passenger vans we have at Nations Bus, costs should be no issue to you.

Also, the fact that we have a partnership with some of the top manufacturers for all our buses and vans demonstrates that we’re experienced dealers as these top companies are our allies. Some of these manufacturers are the giants like Champion Bus, Diamond Coach, Elkhart Custom Designs, Grech Motors, L.A. West, Federal, Turtle Top, and many more. We own a trusted dealership and hold genuine sales for passenger buses and vans from time to time solely keeping in mind how will this be proof of a huge advantage to our customers and how can we enhance our services over time. Perhaps this is the reason why our old customers keep coming back to us year after year.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a passenger bus?

Any bus that carries and ferries passengers is a passenger bus. You can find passenger buses for sale of many types: mini passenger buses, midi passenger buses (bigger than mini but smaller than full-sized/big coaches), motor-coaches designed for longer travels – they are the most preferred types of charter buses, single-decker passenger buses or double-decker passenger buses. Passenger buses for sale also include new and used passenger buses like school buses, transit buses and shuttle passenger buses.

The advent of passenger buses can be traced to the 1800s, with its evolution from horse-pulling passenger buses to steam-powered passenger buses to electric trolleys all the way to the development of the first motor passenger bus with internal combustion engine back in 1895. The United States witnessed its first passenger bus in the early 1920s.

Many manufacturers have and continue to delve in this segment. You can find used and new passenger buses for sale from brands like Champion, Diamond Coach, Grech Motors, Turtletop and the like.

How many passengers fit on a passenger van?

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van 2020 with a 144-inch long wheelbase can fit 12 passengers, which is a very high number for a passenger van. The 2021 Nissan NV Passenger Van also caps 12 seats. The 2020 Ford Transit Passenger Van can accommodate up to 15 people. Such passenger vans are about the largest in the market, with the largest passenger vans for sale capping off at 20 seaters.

Can I drive a 12 passenger van with Class C license?

In the United States of America, it is incumbent upon drivers to possess a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to drive certain types of commercial motor vehicles, in accordance with federal government requirements. The licenses are classified into Class A, B C and D. The Class C license is known as the standard driver’s license.

These are the rules as laid down on the official websites: For carrying passengers in the States, you also need to apply for the proper endorsements on your CDL. Passenger (P) endorsement allows the carriage of passengers. Class C licenses are required to operate a single vehicle with GVWR of less than 26,001 pounds or a vehicle towing another vehicle that weighs less than 10,000 pounds, or transports 16 or more passengers, including the driver. So 12 passenger vans can be driven with a Class C license, although exceptions may apply in individual circumstances.

Are passenger vans safe?

It depends on many factors. Passenger vans for sale are pretty safe if the manufacturer is reputed for conforming to safety standards, the driver of the passenger van is experienced and responsible, and the usage of the passenger van is in accordance with guidelines for usage, especially in the case of used passenger vans.

On the other hand, the United States Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued multiple warnings for drivers of 15 passenger vans, due to their high center of gravity and other factors leading to instability and thus accidents, and has urged drivers follow discipline and guidelines such as regular tire maintenance for complete safety. Make sure that you or/and your driver comply with the safety standards

I have a new, small business. Should I buy a new passenger van or a used one?

A large part is based on budget and amount of miles you will be putting on the vehicle. Most of the passenger vans at our inventory are in their best possible condition. The only difference probably would be in the longevity of each of the type but again, your budget, requirements, and usage will highly influence in making the choice between new and used vans.

What is the price of a passenger van?

A passenger van, new or old, at Nations Bus comes between the range of $3,000 for an older used vehicle to over $100,000 for a new luxury van. The price is majorly dependent on features such as the number of seats, make, model, and other specifications.

Does a passenger van with a mentioned seating capacity also include the driver?

Yes. Any seated vehicle also includes the driver.

What is the largest passenger bus?

The Guinness World Records holder for the largest passenger van ever is the Neoplan Jumbocruiser. an articulated double-deck multi-axle city coach built by Neoplan Bus GmbH between 1975 and 1992. It had a 170 passenger capacity, and spanned 18 meters (59 ft) in length, 2.5 m (8 ft 2 in) wide and 4 m (13 ft) in height.

Apart from that, large passenger buses can be found to carry 40 to 80 passengers at a time. One can find a variety of passenger buses for sale options. Great deals can also be cracked on used passenger buses, especially if you are a budding charter business or an organization looking to provide shuttle bus services for customer convenience.

Is there a 20-passenger van?

Yes, the largest passenger vans for sale conclude at 20 seaters generally. 20-seater passenger vans for sale are purchased by organizations/businesses looking to rent new or used passenger vans for events like weddings, short family or corporate trips, etc. Minibuses and sprinter vans offer competition in the 20-seater segment to the 20 passenger van for sale.

Rental cost of 20 seater passenger vans are usually lesser than that of minibuses. However, actual cost depends on itinerary including destinations, drop offs, how long one will use the vehicle, make, model and manufacturer of the passenger van, etc.

Are 12 passenger vans comfortable?

The primary purpose of most 12 passenger vans in the market are commercial instead of personal. They are designed for a one-time one-way or round trip from an economically feasible standpoint. They are comparatively less comfortable than the 8-10 seater passenger van, but latest additions to the fleet of 12 passenger vans do make it better. One can look at 12 passenger vans for sale from reputed brands like Champion, Diamond Coach, Grech Motors, Turtletop etc.

Are 12 passenger vans safer than 15 passenger vans?

Safety of passenger vans are not an exclusive function of number of seats. Rather, multiple other factors such as model of the passenger van, its level of maintenance, years of wear and tear, etc. come into play. Older, used passenger vans are more susceptible to damage/unwanted incidents than new passenger vans for sale.

NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) states that passenger van rollover ratio increases 3 times with 10 or more occupants than with fewer than 10 due to decreased stability under fully-loaded conditions. Both 12 and 15 new and used passenger vans for sale fall in the same category of 10+ occupants.

Granted these points and more both the 12 and 15 passenger vans, 15 passenger vans are banned in certain places, especially where the travel of children is concerned. 12 passenger vans also face resistance and restrictions. So, the bottom line is that one can consider 12 passenger vans a tad safer than 15 passenger vans; however, both can be equally dangerous, equally safe, or one passenger van can be safer than the other passenger van due to factors other than number of seats, as mentioned above.

Does Nations Bus provide any kinds of warranties on used passenger vans?

We will assist you in finding an authorized repair shop near you to do the warranty work for you. Additionally, there are extended warranties available on most vehicles.

Do you offer financing?

Yes, we can assist with either loans or leases on most vehicles with approved credit. Down payment is determined by strength of credit and time in business, starting as low as no money down.

Few good words from NBS Customers

I recently bought a bus through Nations Bus and it was honestly the BEST experience that I have ever been through! I was a bit confused about the type of bus that I should have bought, but the staff there was friendly and patient enough to explain every little detail to me about the buses are there for sale! Thanks a lot Nations Bus. 5 STAR for sure.

We have a huge family with our 3 kids and 2 of my sister’s, and we often plan weekend getaways together. Last month I decided to finally buy a shuttle bus for the family vacations. And Nations Bus has been the best agency ever. Their friendly staff never pesters you to make purchases of the bus that benefits them more than you.

My son recently turned 21 and said he wanted to help in the family’s car rental business, but I had a better idea. I started him off with two minibuses – he can hire them out for picnics or small groups looking to tour the area. My son is getting steady business most days of the week – if we want to expand the fleet by buying new buses, we’re going to Nations Bus!
