The vehicles have a set maintenance schedule, which we hope keeps them in good roadworthy condition, with little time off-the-road as possible, so they can be used as much as possible.
As some vehicles are operated under Small Bus Permits and Car Share, we are required to do a walk-around check daily, an examination every 10 weeks, and a full service annually. Further to this, minibuses require an MOT annually from new, but vehicles with 9 or fewer seats (Car, 9 Seat MPV, 9 Seat Van, Van) only require MOTs annually from three years from registration.
As a result, the schedule we have chosen is consistent will all our vehicles:
|Walk-around||Driver / Driver||Before each journey|
|Inspection||Union Reception / Garage Technician||Every 8 weeks|
|Service||Union Reception / Garage Technician||Anually|
|MOT||Union Reception / Garage Technician||Anually after 3 years (from new for Minibuses)|
