Sprinter cargo van load board

Hello. I registered at TruckersEdge, 123LoadBoard and Truckstop load boards to find loads for a Sprinter, however there wasn't a single load available for a cargo van within the last 2 weeks on the east coast. Looks like these portals are for bigger corps which are directed towards trucks. Are there any load boards suitable for small companies and cargo vans/sprinters, which would also list private freight?
Thank you!

I wouldn't want to lease it, we want to grow the company but need to have a place to start.

How about My Virtual Fleet? Is the membership worth it?

Agree with Turtle. Me and a partner tried doing this for awhile without a dispatcher and got nowhere, especially with the box trucks and sprinter vans.

I honestly don't see the advantage to being a multicarrier in a van, sprinter, etc. The cost of carrying the legal required primary insurance itself is ridiculously high. I have a American English speaking multicarrier freind who is a multicarrier, and pays $3,500 a year for his insurance, and with a clean driving record. And he hauls cheap freight, a lot cheaper than I ever would from the company I am being leased to. He is always calling all the carriers he is leased to...chasing to get paid...sitting more waiting for loads than I would...I just don't see it, but I guess some enjoy working harder for less..

I did the multi carrier thing for a year and hated the phone tag and having to bug them to pay me on time.....I miss load one.
Yes, thats exactly what my freind does...always on the phone...poor guy took a 2,000 mile load only to not get paid from one of those carriers....

And yes, Load One is the best company I have worked for since 1989..must be for me to be here for close to 11 years...

After being leased for 5 1/2 years I decided to go independent and wish I would've done it sooner. The freedom alone is worth the switch, no bs and as long as you're patient & stay in the freight lanes the rates can be decent.

Would you say that your rates are in line what everyone else is running for? Is deadhead to get a load kept at a respectable level?

Usually the multicarrier model is made up of bid board freight, scraps that nobody really wants, low paying freight. That's why I am asking.

That's one thing I'd never do, lease to a company who uses multicarrier drivers. That speaks volumes about a company meaning that they don't have any loyalty to their leased drivers, imo....do they use those guys willing to run for garbage rates first, and use their solely leased guys as a last resort, in order to make more money off of the load? But what does it say from the driver to the one of many companies they are leased to, " sorry, I don't have the faith or trust in you to meet my financial goals, so I'm going to add others to my list..."
