We run a mixed fleet of standard and accessible minibuses with seating capacity of up to 17 seats. The accessible vehicles are equipped with passenger lifts and can be used to transport wheelchairs in vehicles. Seating on the minibuses can be altered to best meet the needs of the hirer.
The vehicles have fully comprehensive insurance cover, 24 hour emergency vehicle/ passenger recovery service and a fuel card system which enables users to refuel at most service stations. The vehicles undergo rigorous 60 day checks to ensure they are maintained to the highest standard. Our vehicles are available 24 hours per day 364 days a year.
