    W/S bro. well, a while back i had that idea in my mind too, and talked to a childhood friend of mine, who has now become a hiace driver, about this also. He is driving on the route of LAHORE TO PINDI . I dont know what model he is driving nowadays, but he said that it would cost between 8.5-9 lacs depending on condition and model and it woudl give no trouble at all in running , and as far as the income was concerned, according to him, he pays 2700 rs. daily to the owner of the HIACE, and rest is his income, how much over he can earn BY ANY MEANS one thing he ADVISED me about was that "you will have to TRUST the driver" and leave the van upto him, otherwise, nobody will happily work with you!. Well, 2700-3000 rs. daily seems a good good profit at the end of the month, but on the other end, it also involves the greatest risks in it as well, and the biggest one of them all is if your HIACE is banged into something and crashed then its TOTALED and it would take a fortune outta your pocket to rebuild and run it again... i was in very much favor of starting this business, but my parents refused cleanly and said that no body is TRUSTWORTHY enough to put 8-9 lacs on stake , so dropped the idea !

    but i wish you best of luck with it bro. and hope you'd find someone really TRUSTWORTHY as the driver , this way, you can also help me in doing same business in the future may be

    agree with Massive

    first find a trusty driver then go for the hiace...

    we bought a 6 wheeler loading truck in 2004...fortunately daily income was good around 4K... but problem was driver and we sold it off after 6 months

    Good Luck

    one of the most annoying work of all!!! transport business ppl who this have been doing for yrs!!! its a dirty work finding drivers tht 2 honest none around!! reliable also if ur hiace crash ur in for it for police, katchery chakars!! income is good nodoubt but if u still want 2 do it give it to a company rental firm or transport one they give u monthly there drivers and there headaches but mainatice is ur headaches and since they r driven alot expect frequent maintaince 11-14 lakhs get u a decent new shape one these days cng is best and more economical then diesel! i would never do it but if u wnat 2 still get a highroof and give it on monthly to a car entla firm to be used as an office, wedding use only this way its kept nicely and not used much!
    BUG ME AND I WILL CRASH INTO U!

    everyone does it and many don't. it's just a matter of how much back up (financial) you have to cover up in terms of loss.

    trust thing is very true. i was once told about a person who began the same kinda business. used to be ripped off daily by a driver. once someone suggested he should also go with him to see what happens so frequently. on a smooth journey the driver suddenly exclaimed, 'o sir jee! motion tut gaya hai.' 'now vot?' 'Rs. 3000'!!!!!!!!!!!!!
