Buyers guide introduction

Welcome to the Minibus Options Buyers Guide, which provides a simple way to configure the perfect vehicle for your organisation.

Whether you are a school, community transport operator, care home, outreach unit, patient transport service, special needs transport or commercial passenger transport, Minibus Options can help you design a vehicle to meet the specific needs of your community.

This guide is primarily aimed at customers who need wheelchair accessible minibuses but we can also design and build highly specialised van conversions to suit any application.

A wealth of experience

Firstly, why choose to work with us?

As one of the leading wheelchair accessible minibus manufacturers in the UK – celebrating over 35 years in the business – we have supplied over 5,000 minibuses to organisations across the UK.

We understand that, with the plethora of options on offer, configuring the perfect vehicle can seem like a daunting prospect. With us, you will benefit from specialist advice, gained from our extensive knowledge and experience in the industry. We build to Type Approval standards, giving you complete peace of mind that the vehicle you receive meets all current regulations and safety standards. Our build process is fully audited and we are approved convertors for Renault, Volkswagen, Fiat, Iveco, Peugeot and Vauxhall. We also have professional working relationships with Mercedes and Ford.

As a family-run company, we take great pride in the service we offer our customers. Whether you are a large or small organisation, you will receive the same customer care and personal service. We are delighted that a great number of our customers are repeat business.

For us, that is the greatest accolade of all.

Every vehicle custom-built

As a core philosophy, we don’t opt for an ‘off the shelf’ approach, we listen carefully to the needs of our customers and work in partnership together to ensure that the vehicle we build is perfect for you and your passengers.

Following this guide, step by step, will ensure that Minibus Options can give you a firm quote with no ‘hidden extras’ and a reliable delivery schedule which will enable your fleet manager to plan fleet replacements with complete confidence.
