What is the current lead time/delivery time for a Minibus?

You are here

For a bespoke new minibus that is ordered directly from the factory, lead times will vary depending on which model and specification you choose, and which manufacturer base vehicle you have chosen. We can provide you with the most up-to-date information on lead times and we encourage you to discuss this with us if a short lead time is important to you.

Generally, lead times from manufacturers vary from 2 to 8 months, depending on the specification of vehicle being ordered and the time of year - for instance a lot of factories on the continent shut down during August.

You can sometimes speed up your order by changing the specification of your minibus

When ordering your minibus, there are certain choices that can speed up or slow down the process. Automatic gearboxes, certain engines and some paint choices may be in short supply, meaning the waiting times for these vehicles will be longer than for standard vans. If there's a particular option you want, ask us if this will have an impact on your delivery time - at least that way you have all the facts before you make the decision.

You don't always have to wait for it to be built in the factory

We always have a number of stock minibuses either in production in our facility in Whaley Bridge, or en-route from the manufacturer. If a short lead time is important to you, can you be flexible on colour, engine or specification choice? Could you even try a model you weren't thinking of? Call us now about finding the minibus that meets all your needs.

This is the second vehicle we've had from Minibus Options, and as before our requirements were expertly understood and appropriate recommendations made.
Communication was really good throughout and we were regularly updated on progress.
