Are you planning a business trip with several of your co-workers or associates? Or, are you and a group of friends looking forward to a weekend of eating, shopping, and simply spending time together? If so, you may need to rent one of the 12- or 15-passenger vans from 5 Star Truck Rental. But, how do you know which one you should rent? When trying to decide which choice is best for your specific situation, ask yourself these three questions.

Van Rentals: Do I Need a 12 or 15-Passenger Van?

How Many People Are Riding?

The first question you need to ask when choosing a 12- or 15-passenger van is how many people you will be transporting. If there will be 12 or fewer people, including the driver, then a 12-passenger van will do just fine. You also need to consider if you will be picking up people on the way to your destination. If so, you may want to consider renting a 15-passenger van.

Are You Bringing Equipment with You?

If you’re bringing equipment for a work-related conference or luggage for an overnight stay, you may want to consider renting a 15-passenger van. Even if you have less than 12 people riding with you, having the extra space will make the ride more comfortable. Your co-workers would also have room to break out their laptops and prepare for the upcoming conference while riding to your destination.

Will You Be Bringing Items Home?

Maybe you’re traveling for pleasure rather than business, and a large group of you and your friends are traveling to do some much-needed shopping therapy. If there are less than 12 people but you plan on doing quite a bit of shopping, having the extra space a 15-passenger van provides could be very beneficial.
