School minibus leasing is the ideal way to fund your new minibus with known, regular costs and peace of mind and the surety of a manufacturer warranty. There are many optional extra’s which will make it that little bit more useful, safer and easier to use.
Seat Covers – most schools will use their new minibus more than they think . One of the most popular extras to fit is seat covers. Seat covers are normally waterproof and superb for days out from school or even more advance holidays and outward bound trips. Wiping down a vinyl seat cover is easy compared to cleaning your seats, which remain brand new underneath.
Security – making your minibus difficult to steal is a sensible to do. Category one alarms are incorporated into the ignition and have reduced theft levels in the UK. Next, fit locking wheel nuts and a steering wheel cover. The locking wheel nuts stop opportunist theft of wheels and tyres, whilst a high quality “sold secure” steering wheel cover will put off a prospective thief.
Tow bars and trailers – if you are going to pull a trailer for outward bound days, let us know in advance so that we can arrange the tow bar for your needs. If you are simply towing a lightweight trailer for canoes and camping equipment, then single electrics is fine, if however your trailer has on-board fridges for any reason, then you will need twin electrics. Trailers tend to be bespoke to the need of a school, that said we have relationships with several trailer fabricators that will produce your ideal unit
Parking distance sensors – ideally you want to be able to see what is behind you at all times when reversing. That can be achieved with a camera and HD screen, both of which we can arrange for your new minibus. Optionally or as well as a camera, park distance control systems will alert the driver to an obstruction behind the minibus when reversing. It helps not only with reversing but reduces accident risk and damage to your new minibus
Roof rack and internal racking – if you need to carry extra equipment and don’t want to pull a trailer, you can achieve this using a roof rack on top of the minibus and internal racking for storage.
Additional heating – it’s a long way to the back of a minibus.
If you are going to use it all year round with winter expeditions, we can arrange diesel fired heating for your minibus.
