A school that needs a minibus on a regular basis recently leased from Vanlease UK. Their Ford Transit Lwb Minibus Diesel Rwd Medium Roof 14 Seater Tdci was delivered in June. Funding a minibus on contract hire achieves many things for a school. The minibus is always available, without proofs having to be presented every time a rental company arranges one for you and then the questions about driving licences start. With your own minibus you can use it whenever you want to and will probably find that you start to use it more than you would otherwise do because its available.
In their case, they had never taken a group of teenagers on an outward bound courses, but now it’s a monthly event. We arranged a roof rack for carrying tents and equipment and a tow bar, which we believe is to tow a trailer for canoes in the future. Their new Transit Minibus on contract hire has also got robust seat covers and removable washable carpet mats for the muddy days.
Last year, they paid £400 a month to rent a minibus three times a month and had to commit to a quarter, this year they have been paying £250 a month and using it twice a week. The new minibus is under manufacturer warranty and we have arranged a service and tyre policy that for a regular monthly payment covers servicing and tyre costs.
When parked up the minibus is secured with a Cat 1 Ford alarm and a GPS tracker, at the school it is parked in quite a tight spot, so it was ordered with front and rear parking sensors. Based on the supplied graphics of the school, we arranged a local graphics company to logo the minibus and it was delivered ready to go, to the school.
