Learn how to find the best van price guide, and the key features to look for in a new or used van.

Van Price Quote

When you are deciding which van to buy, a big aspect of the deal to consider is the van price. Although other things must be taken into consideration when you buy a van, such as any incentives offered by the seller, the total price is undeniably the most important, so it is a good idea to be aware of the prices before you decide on a van for sale. To get a feel for the price of a particular type of van before you get to the dealership, you can get price quotes from Internet sources using the following step-by-step instructions.

  1. Perform a quick Google search for automobile price quotes. Look through the list of links for a site that offers free quotes for all car models, such as PriceQuotes.com. Alternatively, if you already know of a dealer you are interested in, you can use that dealer's website to get a quote.
  2. Once you have found a website of this kind, all you have to do is select the make, model, and year of the type of van you are looking for. You will then have to supply information about where you live. This is because the price of car models changes from place to place.
  3. Having supplied all the required information, you will be shown a price quote for the model of van you are looking for in the area around where you live. This is an estimate of how much this model will cost if you buy it in good condition.

Choosing the Right Type of Van for Your Budget

Van prices will depend on whether you are buying new or used. Certain types of vans are also more expensive than other models, such as those modified for special accommodations (i.e. wheelchair van). The engine size will also determine the price, because vans with large engines are usually more expensive compared to smaller-engine minivans.

Van Price Guide
Your neighborhood dealer or used car lot will give you a better idea on the selling price of a new or used van. This will also make it possible to inspect the van personally and check for product features and specifications. The Internet is also a good source of information pertaining to the price of vans and minivans.

The 2010 Chrysler Town and Country is available in six trims and will cost anywhere from $25,000 to $35,000 when bought brand new. The Dodge Caravan is at the lower end of the price range and could be purchased for $22,000 to $25,000.

Used Vans
The budget oriented consumer should look for the wide variety of used vans sold in the market. The Chevrolet Astro is a popular choice in the minivan arena and is available for as low as $600 for old model trims. A 2005 to 2007 model Chrysler Town and Country is priced from as low as $5,500 to as high as $16,000, depending on vehicle condition, trim and other options installed.

It would be best to search around and compare prices before buying a new or used minivan. Some vans are meant to be modified, as brand new vans from Toyota or Dodge can be specifically designed for the customer's needs.
