Safety Features

All of our vehicles follow a strict maintenance system. They are checked daily by the driver as well as having an M.O.T every 12 months.  All vehicles are plated by the Council in order to be allowed to work for our company.

All drivers are carefully vetted and selected to ensure that our high standards are met and maintained.  They have all undergone a medical and have a current valid CRB certificate.  All our drivers and escorts have attended a training course covering basic First Aid and the transportation of vulnerable passengers, including wheelchair users. Our vehicles are correctly insured for the transportation of passengers and goods. Our company also has valid public liability insurance.

Safety is of the utmost importance to us and we consider this a priority at all times.
