SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE
SAFETY & MAINTENANCE
Our buses have been restored to a very high standard and are subject to thorough safety checks every 8 weeks. Furthermore, our policy of preventative maintenance at our fully equipped workshop ensures they are very reliable vehicles.
DRIVERS AND INSURANCE
All our drivers are experienced vintage bus drivers and have PCV (Passenger Carrying Vehicle) licences; our buses are all taxed and insured for private hire and we have fully comprehensive and public liability insurance.
We hold a Public Service Vehicle Operator’s Licence, issued on behalf of the Department of Transport by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). As a licenced operator we must satisfy a number of requirements, including demonstrating a satisfactory maintenance regime and holding sufficient financial reserves. Any of these requirements may be checked by the DVSA at any time.
DON'T BE TAKEN FOR A RIDE - ALWAYS USE A FULLY LICENSED OPERATOR!
We are fully licensed and insured for operating our buses and carrying passengers. Our Operator number is PG1112309 and this can be verified on the VOSA website. Also, our insurance certificates are available at our office for inspection.
We would expect you to shop around for the best deal when considering hiring a vintage bus. We believe our vehicles are some of the best examples available for hire across North Wales and The Northwest and would be delighted for you to view our buses at our offices in Llay near Wrexham, you will then be able to ask us any questions and see for yourself the flawless quality of our vehicles’ paint, bodywork and interior seating.
BE AWARE OF THE DANGERS OF USING AN UNLICENSED OPERATOR!
We strongly advise you to ensure that your chosen supplier is fully legal. To carry passengers, the law requires both the operator and the driver to be properly licensed. If they are not, then their insurance will almost certainly be invalidated. Furthermore, there will be no guarantee that the vehicle will have been checked and maintained to commercial bus safety standards.
Unfortunately, there are unlicensed bus owners advertising their services in this area at highly discounted prices, so before booking ask to see their O Licence and check that their vehicle is taxed and insured as a PCV (Passenger Carrying Vehicle) and not a historic vehicle.
