One of the most popular school minibuses has just gone out of production. Why? And what can we do about it?

With so many schools now having one or more minibuses it is not surprising that certain models have shown themselves to be particularly popular across the UK.

One such model is the Ford Transit Minibus – and it is the very popularity of this vehicle that makes it seem, at first sight at least, rather odd that it is no longer available.

The explanation is that Ford are planning to bring out a new model sometime next year – which is presumably fine for Ford but not much use to the many schools that were planning to lease or buy a Ford minibus in the meanwhile.

But fortunately, a solution is at hand.

Because when we heard the news from Ford, we took the decision to order up a significant number of Ford Minibuses which are available for immediate delivery.

As a result these minibuses are available now for lease or, if you have the funds in place, for purchase.

Of course the choice of leasing or purchase is yours, but I would add that leasing does offer the opportunity of having the maintenance undertaken by the leasing company – thus ensuring that the bus is fully serviced as and when needed, and always runs to the highest safety standards.
