As the former owner of Jesse Jones Auctioneers, I have been in auto sales for many years. I began selling the retired commuter vans for King County in 1997. It is amazing to me how many different ways the vans are used! In addition to church groups, families and daycares, I have sold vans to musical groups, dog sitters, carpet layers, taxi and touring companies, fishing villages in Alaska, cabinetmakers, and a variety of other businesses.
I enjoy meeting the different people who come to view and buy the vans. I have also coordinated purchases and shipping of vans across the country and internationally. I look forward to working with you! ~ Pam Jones
"I cannot say enough about how easy Pam made purchasing our business van. I called her and she answered all of my questions. She immediately sent me all the information about the van we had picked out – maintenance records etc. As soon as we made the purchase she delivered the van to the barge company for shipment to Ketchikan, Alaska. We had the van within 1 week (almost unheard of in shipping things to Alaska). I needed some additional paperwork for the DMV here and again, she reacted with lightning speed in sending the required document to me.The van arrived here in great condition. Clean inside and out. It drives well and will suit our needs perfectly. Thank you Pam!"

Thanks so much for your friendliness and professionalism. Having just recently purchased a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan from you I can attest to your knowledge and skill in helping people find a good, well serviced vehicle at a great price. Your friendly and pressure-free environment creates an atmosphere I would be happy to return to. Having staff nearby that has done maintenance to the vehicle was a bonus.
Thanks again! Scott Thomson ~ June 2020
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.We have been buying 12 and 15-passenger vans from the Metro Van Pool for five years, and we are totally pleased with our purchases. The in-print and over-the-phone descriptions we have received are totally accurate and have made it easy to make our selections. The vans have been very well taken care of, and we really appreciated being able to get the maintenance records for each of our new vehicles. And the staff is totally helpful. They have won us over as loyal customers!

I say "thank you" for selling me a KC Metro Dodge Van. The looking and buying process was great! I appreciate the maintenance records too. That was some Friday! I picked up the van and my wife and I drove to East Wenatchee without any problems. The van drives nicely and handles well. Made it back well on Sunday, too. The Craigslist ad that led me to the website was clear and to the point. Best Wishes for Health and Safety! - Gordon
