Welcome to School Minibus Leasing UKMinibus Leasing Advice and Support for Schools, Academies, Colleges and Universities

Why buying a minibus is rarely the right way forward

We have all seen the stories, a school or a club spends years raising funds to buy a minibus, gets to the target figure and buys a five year old minibus outright. Their minibus is an asset which is falling in value month on month and in just a few years will be so expensive to keep safe that it will be unaffordable and have very little value


If the same money had been used to lease a new minibus, instead of a five year old or older minibus, you get a brand new one that has the latest safety systems, new tyres, manufacturer back up etc etc…

When you lease, you get to fix your monthly payment and not only can you include tyres and servicing, but we can also have your regular safety checks included as well


Ok, suppose you buy a newer one

A more recent minibus will have some of the advantages of the new one that you get when you lease. It will benefit from modern safety equipment and systems just like a new one. But, when you lease, you get to deal with people who supply minibuses every day and can help you make your way through the mire of responsibilities that come your way

At Schoolminibusleasing, we will help you arrange your staff driver training, if anything goes wrong or you simply just don’t understand, we are here to help. We can help you set up a DVSA compliant safety check routine, to keep your minibus compliant and safe


What about ramps and lifts

One in four minibuses in the UK have some kind of modification, from lightweight ramps to a hydraulic tail lift and removable seats. Buying a minibus means also paying for the modifications, which could easily be even more expensive than the minibus itself. But your new leased minibus can have all your extras installed before delivery and included for an extra monthly payment
