Minibuses for Charities & Community

We have seen an increase in the number of charity groups and community organisations who have a requirement for a minibus to use for their organisation.

There are many reasons we are approached by charity groups and community organisations to source them a minibus, including:

  • providing accessible and inclusive transport
  • improving the everyday lives of people across local areas, particularly those in rural locations
  • helping get people to hospitals, towns and shops, as well as supporting employment and education

A lot of the organisations we work with fund raise tirelessly to generate the capital to enable them to purchase or lease a minibus.

Preloved minibuses

We have had a lot of success in sourcing preloved minibuses for community organisations and charity groups. In particular our ex-lease school minibuses have been a fantastic resource for this purpose as they come back with low mileage and in fantastic condition, plus there are a wide range of colours. Check out our preloved minibus section with more information, our current stock and how to register your interest in upcoming preloved minibus stock.

Buy or lease

There are two main ways of financing your minibus whether you are raising ongoing funds or have the cash in the bank; purchase the minibus outright or take out a lease (business contract hire) to pay for the vehicle monthly.

In our experience many organisations find it impossible to raise the funds to purchase the minibus outright and this is where leasing comes into play. Our definitive guide to leasing helps you through:

  • Why choose leasing
  • How leasing works
  • Plus the different types of leasing

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!"

"Dear All, From time to time colleagues ask for recommendations on new minibuses. We have just had fantastic service from CVM Minibuses in Fareham and I strongly recommend them to you.

D Tomkins - Holy Family Catholic Primary School

"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."

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.”

"Our recent minibus order was actioned quickly and effectively. Caroline is very friendly and able to action requests at short notice."
