About Us

Why Choose School Minibus Leasing UK?

School Minibus Leasing UK forms part of a group of businesses (Carlease (UK) Ltd t/a CarLease UK and VanLease UK) which supply contract hire and associated leasing products to individuals, businesses and educational bodies alike. From humble beginnings over 40 years ago, our automotive business has seen rapid growth over the last 7 years as we have combined industry experience, buying power and, above all, a committed approach to customer care and satisfaction.   Having already provided cars and commercial vehicles to schools, we were constantly asked to offer minibuses and other passenger carrying vehicles. Our journey into school minibuses began and has since become an essential component within our group.   Across all of the group, we are consistently recognised for our approach to customer care and our honest, ethical approach to business. Regardless of the customer, we endeavour to meet all expectations and ensure that each transaction is managed properly. Undertaking a vehicle procurement exercise can be difficult and time-consuming; we aim to remove of all of these barriers and assist in making the right decisions. Even in the modern-world of electronic communication, we encourage our team to preserve our original values, including face to face business. Operating from our own freehold offices in between Manchester and Liverpool, we are conveniently placed for all our clients based in the Northwest region for an office visit. Conversely, we would welcome the opportunity to meet you at your school offices and can accommodate any on-site meetings required.
