    We have just taken delivery of the minibus and are really delighted with it, and with the service received. Lorraine was very informative and responsive, but thankfully didn't hound us for a decision whilst we were making the decision whether or not to go ahead.

  8. Providing us with a new school minibus

    This is our 3rd minibus with The School Minibus Company. They have provided us with an extremely professional end to end service which was smooth and without any problems. From obtaining quotes and information to taking delivery and returning the previous bus, I cannot fault the service and will continue to highly recommend them to anyone I know.

  9. Supplied 17 seat minibus

    The minibus is great however the third key wasn't supplied and one of the livery logos was also not attached.
    Client in Haywards Heath, 24 August 2017
    Response from School Minibus Company:
    Apologies that there was an oversight by the Ford dealership with regards to the 3rd key, although I understand that SMC made you aware of this as soon as we were informed. Please accept our apologies that the sign writer omitted one of the livery logos which I understand is in hand.
