Minibus Leasing

Thinking of Minibus Leasing?

CVM Minibuses have over 25 years experience in minibus leasing and finance to businesses around the UK. We appreciate how important choosing the right minibus and leasing package for your organisation is, which is why we quote on all makes, models and finance - short or long term to make sure you have the best minibus leasing contract possible.

We appreciate how important choosing the right minibus and finance option for your organisation is. Leasing a minibus is one option to consider.

There are many reasons to consider leasing your next minibus. We have put together a few reasons:


Flexible terms and mileage

There are many options to choose from when it comes to choosing the right length of time to lease a minibus. We work with organisations who lease from 24 months, up to 60 months.
As minibuses are used for a variety of purposes, this affects the mileage requirements in their leasing agreement. Whatever your mileage requirements are, we will have an option for you (please be advised that the minimum mileage per annum is 6,000 miles for leasing agreements).

Our popular choices of annual mileage range from 6,000 to 30,000 miles but we have also worked with organisations that require up to 50,000 miles per annum and we have been able to facilitate this requirement, as well as finding the most competitive deal for them for their lease.

Fixed monthly payments

Working within a budget has never been as prevalent as it is today and our dedicated minibus team are here to make it as easy as possible, and stress free.

Our minibus leasing agreements ensure that the agreed monthly payment at the start of the contract is what you will pay for the whole agreement, with:

  • No hidden surprises
  • No fees
  • No interest changes
  • No nasty shocks

Free delivery

We work with organisations across the whole of the UK and work with our supplier network to be able to offer everyone free delivery to their chosen location.
We may be based on the south coast but our customers go as far north as Scotland, Norfolk in the east and Cornwall in the west.

Maintenance & Roadside Assistance can be included

A key benefit of leasing your minibus is that you can include all the maintenance and roadside assistance as part of the monthly payment.

If you choose maintenance as part of your leasing agreement you will receive:

  • A yearly MOT
  • Scheduled services (based on mileage)
  • Roadside assistance
  • Road fund licence (road tax)

Low initial outlay

Find a large deposit for a minibus lease can be difficult for organisations, let alone trying to find the full vehicle price.

Leasing a minibus with us means you can put down a lower initial payment, usually 3 to 9 times the monthly lease cost to help you use your cash for other purchases.

Putting a larger deposit down at the beginning of your agreement will reduce your monthly payments but this can be unfeasible for some organisations and we are pleased to be able to offer our customers different options to suit their personal needs.

Variety of minibuses to choose from

We have a fantastic range of nursery minibuses to choose from:

How Minibus Leasing works

Minibus leasing is a little bit like a mobile phone contract; you pay a deposit and make monthly payments. Instead of minutes, texts and a data allowance, you get a mileage allowance on your minibus.

At the end of the leasing agreement, you can upgrade to the latest model available and adjust the term and mileage to suit you better or even extend the current agreement (depending on the finance agreement you have chosen).

There is a little more to it than that and there are lots of options, but all in all, it’s pretty simple.

Leasing Options

We offer two leasing options:

Contract Hire with maintenance

You can take out a minibus lease on contract hire with all your maintenance included; annual MOT, scheduled services (based on mileage), roadside assistance, road fund licence and tyres.

Contract hire is suitable for companies and individuals registered for VAT. The main advantage is that the VAT portion is up to 100% recoverable.

If you’re VAT-registered, the VAT portion of your payment is 100% recoverable if the vehicle is used solely for business use. This figure drops to 50% if the vehicle is also available to the driver for personal use.

The vehicle will be hired for a set period of time – typically between 24 and 60 months – and monthly rentals are set based on agreed mileages.

The other main advantage for VAT-registered companies is that up to 100% of your rental can be offset against your company’s taxable profits.

Other benefits of contract hire include:

  • There is no risk of depreciation leaving you with an unexpected cost in the future. With no ownership risk on your part, all you need to adhere to is mileage restrictions and wear-and-tear regulations to ensure your monthly costs are all you will pay.
  • Administration relating to your vehicles is reduced. For example, road fund licence is renewed for you online so you don’t need to worry about it.
  • Your payment is purely a rental, so it sits off your balance sheet, avoiding being classed as a depreciating asset.

Contract Hire without maintenance

This is the same as above but does not include the maintenance of your minibus.

We were looking for a minibus for our day centre. Which our service users had been fundraising for in 2019. We came across CVM and made enquires of which Ben got back in touch ASAP on chatted with me what requirements I wanted. At no point did I feel he was pressuring me into purchasing any stock that they may have already had, which is unusual from previous experiences with contacting other companies!
He had a bus come in and brought it to show us , which I must add is over 120 miles away. My own mechanic checked it over again he was more than happy to drive it to the garage nothing was to much trouble.
He spent a couple of hours with us and we decided to have the bus. Our current bus is green and yellow and we are known for it. He asked if we were getting it wrapped but I explained we will but couldn’t afford it at the moment.
That evening I received the most loveliest email from Ben saying that our service users had touched his heart and he felt humbled to meet them and was going to see if his company would help with the cost to get it wrapped. Well to Freedoms amazement the company along with Solent Signs agreed to cover all costs and sign write it as well!!
This really is such a generous and kind gesture which you don’t come across often especially if there’s no connection to you which being so far away there isn’t.
Everyone at Freedom day centre really can’t thank you all enough. We will be forever grateful.
Ben CVM should feel privileged to have you working for them. Your a credit!!
Anyone thinking of purchasing a bus look no further than CVM you won’t be disappointed I can assure you.
Love all from Freedomdaycentre.co.uk

P Isaacs - Thornden School

"I came across CVM at the Hampshire Minibus event in July and was impressed with their product and the service they offered. Having carried out a detailed comparison survey including costs, CVM represented the best value for money. This was the first time that Thornden School has leased a minibus and I have to say that the process was uncomplicated and hassle free for me. On top of that, the minibus arrived 2 days ahead of schedule."

"I’m pleased to say that my dealings with the CVM Group from start to finish have been impeccable. They have been so helpful along the way and assisted me promptly with each and every one of my queries. From supplying and resupplying budget figures, to advising and facilitating how to obtain a section 19 permit, they couldn’t have been more helpful. And our 2 brand new and branded minibuses look amazing. A big thank you to all the team at CVM!"

"Many thanks to all at CVM Group. You were so helpful organising our Partnership mini bus for us, and ironed out quiet a major obstacle at the last minute, efficiently and professionally. At each step the communication between CVM and the schools was open and free flowing, ensuring that the schools felt confident and reassured.The finished artwork and look of the bus was just as we imagined, no small feat considering the amount of artwork that the pupils of three primary schools can produce. It must have been quite a challenge.Once again thank you for all your assistance we truly appreciate it."

T Sutherland - Blackheath High School

"Leasing vehicles is not just about vehicles – it’s about the people who provide you with those vehicles, and the service they can offer. Every leasing company can provide the same vehicle, but not everyone can provide the same level service and care. The service provided by CVM felt personal.; they listened and, It’s all about that ‘plus 1 factor’ that made me make the right decision and lease my 4 new Ford Transit Minibuses from CVM. Thanks for making it easy."

"St Swithun Wells Catholic Primary School are delighted to work with CVM. It is vital that schools broaden children's experiences and the service CVM provides enables us to access museums, the theatre and art galleries, sporting events. Without them we would not be able to take the children out of school. I have always been impressed by CVM's professionalism, prompt service and knowledgeable staff."

V Davies - The Gregg & St. Winifred’s School

"During our dealings with Caroline at CVM Minibuses we have been delighted with the professionalism, service and expert knowledge she has provided. The three Ford Transit 17 seater minibuses we took delivery of last year have been an absolute asset to our minibus fleet.

We were thrilled to receive a call from Caroline recently donating us the use of a 9 seater VW minibus free of charge for a year. This kind donation is so useful to the school and will be used for the many activities we take part in across Hampshire.

We can’t thank the good people at CVM enough for their help in sourcing our Transit Minibuses last year and also this very generous donation. We look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.”
