Have you considered leasing a minibus for your care home?

Being able to take your residents out for day trips enhances their experience of being in your care. Ensuring you have a suitable vehicle will be top of your priority list.

Minibus Leasing UK supply care homes across the UK with minibuses. We offer a personal service to all customers, ensuring specific needs are met. You have one point of contact throughout the process.

Our experienced team have a full understanding of the needs of care homes. We have mature relationships with minibus conversion companies, who install wheelchair lifts and other special requirements. We can arrange for your minibus to be branded with your care home logo. And importantly, we can guide you through all the legal requirements.

What to consider when leasing a minibus for a care home

To ensure every specific need is met, we will ask questions such as:

  1. What will the minibus be used for?
  2. How many seats are needed?
  3. What is the ratio of carers to care home residents that is required to be carried in the minibus?
  4. Will there be a requirement for disabled access either now or in the future?
  5. How long will the minibus be needed for?

Featured minibuses 

We currently have two featured minibuses that are perfect for care home leasing due thanks to their special features.

The Ford Transit Custom  320 L2 DIESEL FWD 2.0 TDCi 105ps KOMBI Van with Wheelchair conversion offers space for 4 passengers and 2 wheelchairs. Importantly this minibus can be driven on a normal driving licence which is something many of our clients find extremely useful.

Ford Transit Custom 320 L2 diesel wheelchair conversion

This minibus is custom built when ordered and has a lead time of approximately 20 weeks. The Ford is available to lease from £411.99 a month but to get a quote specific to your needs please contact our team.

The second minibus with a wheelchair conversion that we have available to lease is the Ford Transit 410 L3 Minibus Diesel RWD 2.2 TDCi 125ps H3 11 Seater Trend wheelchair conversion.
