If your Academy has off-premise education days, visits to the theatre, sports fixtures or transportation for disabled students, then academy minibus leasing could be an attractive proposition for you. In short, this method of vehicle procurement can offer:
For a reasonable (and fixed) monthly payment, you benefit from your own new minibus which remains there at all times and at your convenience. We appreciate that hiring a vehicle can be time-consuming and expensive plus you are using an older vehicle which has not been safety-checked by you. After only 1 or 2 trips per month, short-term hire can become a more expensive option.
At the end of a contract hire arrangement, there are no residual value concerns or disposal issues; we will handle the administration processes so that at the end of the lease the vehicle is collected and a new vehicle will be simultaneously delivered. As you decide the term of the contract, generally between 2 and 4 years, you can budget for vehicle costs with precision.
After arranging your new contract from Vanlease UK, you will receive a brand new vehicle, specified to your requirements. Your academy may decide to have extra seat covers to protect the seats on outward bound days, along with a roof rack to carry extra luggage. However, we do understand that choosing the right extra specification can be daunting, so do feel free to speak with us for honest advice and guidance, so that we can work with you in finding the right solution.
If you do decide that minibus leasing is the best way to fulfil your transport requirements, please do liaise with our experienced team here if you require any advice (practical, legal or otherwise.) We understand the obligations placed on your Academy; notwithstanding the fact that safety for your students, staff and drivers is of the paramount importance.
Understanding the rules relating to a vehicle can be initially confusing, such as the rules relating to driving licence requirements and restrictions. We are often asked questions such as how old do drivers need to be? How long must a driver have held a licence for? While our team are more than happy to offer advice and support, we have created a number of easy to understand articles (links) and blogs, including a series of video questions and answers. These should hopefully point you in the right direction.

We also appreciate that you have to deal with a business that you can trust; leasing a minibus is an important decision for your Academy. Without exception, we offer good, honest and ethical advice at every stage, so you can be assured that the decisions we make together are the right ones for you, your pupils and your staff.
The entire team at Vanlease UK will always go the extra-mile to ensure you, and your team, are completely satisfied. If you require service reminders, monthly communications or industry alerts, this can all be done for you at no extra-cost. Additionally, you may need assistance with sign-writing, graphics and livery with your new minibus; this can all be arranged for you too.
We open Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 6.00pm, plus Saturday 10.00am to 2.00pm, so that we are always there for you when you need us. As we do encourage you to utilise our specialist maintenance programmes, we can ensure out of hours assistance relating to breakdown, tyres and servicing should the requirement arise.
Finding the most competitive deal is now a must for an Academy. In the same way as the private sector, budgets are now under pressure and any financial decisions must be in the best interests of the Academy.
Due to our consistent year on year growth, we have been able to buy more and more vehicles, which has resulted in better supply terms. As our customer, you benefit with cost-effective and market-leading competitive minibus leasing deals.
When deciding how best to allocate your budget, please do also consider the addition of a maintenance contract as part of your deal. With this programme, your vehicle will be covered for all routine servicing, exhausts and tyres. Ultimately this benefits your Academy in terms of safety reliability, and certainty of cost.
