Van (vehicle)

A van is a vehicle used for transporting goods or groups of people. It is generally a rather box-shaped vehicle on four wheels (not more), about the same width and length as a large automobile, but taller and usually higher off the ground.

Many mobile businesses use a van to carry almost their entire business to various places where they work (for instance, people who come to homes or places of business to perform services or to install or repair appliances).

Vans are also used to shuttle people and their luggage between hotels and airports, to transport commuters between parking lots and their places of work, and along established routes as mini-buses.
