When it comes to choosing your new school minibus, there is a logical series of steps to take in order to decide on the make and model that you have
Firstly, we believe that your new school minibus should be serviced by a main dealer. With maintenance included in your monthly payment, your new minibus service costs need not be a surprise and you can then use the dealer of your choice, be it Ford, Citroen, Renault, Vauxhall, Fiat or Mercedes-Benz. If you check locally, some manufacturers may not be represented.
Having established which manufacturers are most suited, then decide how many seats your need your new minibus to have. This will vary between 9 and 17 seats. Further considerations here as to who will drive it and will their licence allow them to do so. licencing info is covered in a prior blog here
Will you need special access like ramps or lifts and will you need wheel chair tie downs?
Your new minibus can be supplied with many extras that may be vital or you may just want. Things such as seat covers, roof racks, tow bars etc can be arranged prior to you taking delivery meaning that it arrives ready to go
Consider health and safety, you are going to need fire extinguishers and first aid kits. If you will be using the minibus for Winter excursions, then you may want to consider additional heating, such as a diesel fired heater.
