Minibus Leasing Case Studies

State School Requirement

We were asked by a State run school to investigate and recommend a large minibus with a permanent conversion to allow use by a single wheelchair and occupant with an electric/hydraulic rear ramp arrangement.

Based on the specific requirements we recommended a Ford 17 seat minibus with a CoTrim conversion for wheelchair access, hydraulic rear ramp and appropriate signage, power and safety systems. The vehicle was delivered on-time and in-budget. 

Local Authority Care Home

Our client is a Local Authority who contacted us to provide a replacement vehicle for one of their care homes. We quickly identified that the vehicle required was a specialised conversion so, with our conversion partners, we set about making the necessary proposal. We chose a Renault Master to convert and fitted the vehicle with three removable and two fixed seats to the rear compartment. We included two wheel chair positions, along with the driver’s seat and two front passenger seats. A hydraulic lift was fitted to the rear of the vehicle for wheel chair access, with passenger access via a side door. Handrails and markings were provided for safety throughout. Finally, the vehicle was supplied with a satellite navigation system. These changes ensured that the residents of this care home can enjoy their journeys in comfort and safety.

Commercial FM Company

With staff to move from site to site within central London, our client was looking for a minibus that was able to transport everyone safely, but in a vehicle that was easily manoeuvrable in the confines of a busy city. We supplied a standard twelve seat Transit minibus, fully liveried with the client’s logos and with additional seat covers to maintain the internal condition of the vehicle. The client took a fully maintained contract with a relief vehicle in case of the need for mechanical repairs, so they are assured of always being mobile. With tyres, road tax, servicing and annual MOTs all included, their contract provides them with a fixed monthly motoring cost.

World Famous College

With a fleet of six minibuses, this world famous college invited us to supply vehicles for them to purchase outright. Purchasing through us enabled our client to benefit from our purchasing terms while having the peace of mind that they still have the full manufacturer’s warranty. The college operates a four year renewal cycle; we arrange for the full appraisal of each ‘old’ vehicle and its disposal, and the college uses the proceeds of the sale to help fund the new vehicle. With our experience, we make this a seamless process of disposal and acquisition
