Introducing our new 17 seat Mercedes minibus for schools

- 19-May-2016 -

This week, Castle Minibus has been proud to launch our brand new 17 seater Mercedes minibus.

The new 17 seat Mercedes minubuses were showcased to over 400 top independent schools from across the UK, at the Independent Bursar’s Association Conference.

Why we love Mercedes minibuses

Mercedes are one of the two favoured manufacturers of minibuses that Castle Minibus provide. Many vehicles that are described as a minibus actually started off life as a van and were converted to contain seating for multiple passengers.

Made for purpose

Mercedes minibuses are manufactured for the sole purpose of multi person transportation and are, for that reason considered as a superior vehicle for supply to schools. Our clients benefit, not only from the superior production quality of Mercedes, but also from the choice of additional safety and support packages we offer. Ask us for more details.

Premium safety standards and intelligent systems

The intelligent systems that come as standard with the Mercedes minibus include attentive rear-view camera, wide-angle mirrors, ultra-sensitive rain sensors and fully adjustable headlights with an additional static active light function source, ensuring a clearer view of the road – in font and behind, in any light.

First-rate comfort for passengers and driver

The superbly spacious interior allows ease of boarding and alighting for up to 16 passengers and the driver. And once seated, all those travelling will benefit from fully adjustable and calibrated seating positions, ensuring that no matter how long the journey, no-one will suffer from discomfort and become agitated.

And what’s more, the panoramic windows in the sliding doors will enable every person to have a great view even from an aisle seat, so no more bickering from the back!


Why schools love Mercedes minibuses

Castle Minibus believe the best products and services bring about the best experiences for our clients, which is why we strive to provide nothing but the best.

Big back end and zero towing

This specific 17 seater minibus from Mercedes is a longer length, as demonstrated by the yellow broken line just behind the rear wheel arch in the photographs. This extra space, equivalent to just under two trailers worth, allows for more luggage to be transported inside, eliminating the need for a tow bar.

Regulated fuel consumption

Your school budget will thank you for the intelligent system that regulates fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. Euro V emission standards ensure your school will be operating an efficient and economical minibus service for your students.

Castle Minibus supply them!

Excuse us for tooting our own horn (and for the occasional pun), but 98% of our clients told us we were either good or excellent, which is way above the market average.

In actual fact, our clients love the fact that we take care of the training, servicing and repairs, MOT’s, breakdown and roadside assistance and even supply the minibus complete with your school’s own livery proudly displayed.

If your school would like to see the new Mercedes 17 seater minibus up close and personal, we will bring it to your door, anywhere in the UK. You will be able to see for yourselves how the extended luggage space benefits sports teams, orchestras and Duke of Edinburgh participants alike.

There’s so much to our service and you can find out more on our website, or call us with your questions on 01869 253744. Our sales team look forward to hearing from you.
