Lease or buy a minibus? What’s best for you?

Your focus is on providing excellent trips and transport for your pupils and students, and leasing with Bentley Walker Minibus Leasing means that’s where your focus stays. We take care of every detail, and in a very cost-efficient way. Your fixed lease hire monthly cost includes all servicing, maintenance, repairs, new tyres, road tax and MOTs. Whereas if you bought a minibus, you’d have to sort it all out yourself. Here we’ve laid out the pros and cons to make them easy to compare.

Primary School Minibus Leasing
Organised Driving Training
We also organise professional driver training courses so that the right staff have a D1 minibus licence, and help you through the examination and certification process. Remember, with our Minibus Lite, no D1 licence is required. Instead, the relevant staff can attend the thorough MiDAS training course to ensure they have the skills and confidence to drive Minibus Lite.
