About Castle Minibus
Castle Minibus has been providing vehicles to the education sector for over 25 years. We are unique in our attitude to safety and compliance, choosing to only supply the safest vehicles, using the highest qualified instructors and providing compliance services and accredited courses. Everything we do is designed to protect school budgets, time, staff and pupils.
As the market leader, we will continue to develop and invest in new and innovative products and services to deliver the best we can for our customers throughout the UK
Chris Maynard, M.D.
Castle Minibus remains staggered at the number of schools sold vehicles that they later discover are not fit for purpose because of weight or licensing issues.
Schools have very high profiles in their communities. Teachers, governors, parents and children should feel immensely proud and safe when out and about in their minibuses and confident in the knowledge they’re as safe as they can be.
Castle provides the very best vehicles, short term hire, driver training, compliance service and advice and to our clients, we don’t just hand over the keys and hope for the best.
Champions of Minibus Safety
Castle has partnered with the likes of the RAC and RoSPA for different projects to raise levels of minibus compliance, vehicle safety and driver safety standards.
