Here at Minibus Manchester we are incredibly proud of our fleet vehicles’. Paul our Events and Fleet Manager has a mass of knowledge in vehicle maintenance. After leaving school he did his apprenticeship with Ford, then moving onto work at BMW until his late 20’s, so we like to think there is nothing you can ask him about vehicle maintenance or vehicle repairs that he wouldn’t know.
All of our minibuses are Ford Transit, and a salon car which is a Ford Mondeo, it’s not a coincidence that all our vehicles’ are Ford. The vehicles’ all have durotorque engines which we keep any needed spares and have full understanding of the design and best way to maintain them, for example at 100,000 miles we will change the timing chain. We have only had one breakdown in the last 5 years that was due to an unavoidable stone entering the fan belt system, we managed to, with the help of our garage team, get the vehicle back onto the road within 40 minutes. We have 10 vehicles’ doing over 50,000 miles per year so we think this must be a record.
