School Bus Hire Oxted

Allenby Coach Hire provides school coach hire services for Oxted, Surrey. Specialising in smaller coaches and minibus hire, we have a proven reputation for providing services which are reliable, presentable and friendly

We are a well-established family-run mini-coach company offering coach hire in Surrey, Kent and London since 1984. We are ideally situated to provide high-quality coach hire and minibus hire for Oxted, south London, Sevenoaks and the surrounding areas.

The Perfect Vehicles

Allenby Coach Hire have always prided ourselves on acquiring the best vehicles available for the company fleet. We have noticed an increase in the number of schools requiring 16 seater coaches when previously they would have used their own mini-buses.

We find the main reason being the lack of teachers with the necessary driving licence entitlement or the tendency for manufacturers to produce mini-buses over the 3.5-tonne limit.

Ideal For Schools and Groups Bookings

We can provide schools and group bookings. Our vehicles enable us to cater for groups or school parties where larger coaches would create an unnecessary financial burden.

Our drivers are fully qualified to drive the vehicles, holding either D (over 16 seats) or D1 (up to 16 seats) PSV driving licences also due to the nature of our work they hold enhanced DBS clearance.

As well as this we provide the opportunity for our drivers to obtain their Drivers Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC) as well as the St Johns Ambulance certificate of competence in Emergency First Aid.

We also use Mr Stephen Early as our Independent Health and Safety Consultant to advise our drivers on the correct procedures when dealing with hazards found in and around the vehicles.

As a coach company specialising in smaller vehicles for over 20 years we offer the following service to our school clients:

  1. 16, 19, 29 & 35 seater mini-coaches purchased on a three-year replacement policy
  2. All vehicles are fitted with 3-point seat belts, air-conditioning and suitable luggage facilities
  3. All drivers hold an enhanced DBS
  4. We provide a price structure based on mileage bands for the whole school year (you know what you are going to be charged in September for trips the following June)
  5. Invoices are generated after the trip has taken place on a monthly or weekly basis depending on the school’s payment terms. They contain the schools booking reference and are departmentalised to help with administration.

Recommendations

We would recommend the following to a School:

  1. To have one member of staff responsible for all school coach booking and not leave it up to individual departments. That person would soon get to know the good from the bad.
  2. Require that all departments request coaches by the number of passengers and not coach size. This allows for the use of smaller (cheaper coaches).
  3. Always E-mail any orders or alterations, never rely on telephone calls.
  4. Book coaches as early as possible, especially in the summer term. We would rather our schools’ book and then cancel, than us not be able to provide a coach. This is especially the case for PE departments with annual repeat fixtures.  We recommend booking summer fixtures before the Easter Holidays.

We have recently noticed an increase in the number of schools requiring 16 seater coaches when previously they would have used their own mini-buses. We find the main reason being the lack of teachers with the necessary driving licence entitlement either due to length of time they have held their licence or the tendency for manufacturers to produce mini-buses over the 3.5-tonne limit (information regarding who is allowed to drive school mini-buses can be found here)
