The Growth of Pre-Loved Minibuses

Despite these challenging times, school minibuses are becoming a more popular method of getting children to school and home again, as well as providing access to outside learning opportunities, outdoor exercise and wider community use too.


Historically Bridle Minibus have mostly offered new vehicles on a leasing arrangement and this is still be far the most popular way of accessing a minibus for a school.


However, for those schools that want to look at a good quality pre-loved minibus we now have the answer. At Bridle minibus we have access to a growing number of high quality used minibuses, most of which do not require a D1 to be driven (subject to conditions being met).


Whilst a lot of people love a shiny brand-new minibus, the cost savings against a new minibus can make a pre-loved vehicle look very attractive because  the largest of the costs –  depreciation – will have been paid by someone else.


The vehicles have a full-service history and most have low mileage, having been looked after by a school for the first few years of its life. Most have wheelchair access and ramps, but we also do have vehicles with multiple wheelchair options and lifts.


Vehicles will be prepared to the highest standards, with 12 months MOT, a choice of warranty period and free delivery. We will even include your logo if you wish. We can sell them outright or offer finance packages and even supply them on a flexi lease arrangement.


If you have an old minibus that you want to part exchange, we can also help with this too!
