November 2017 saw Red Kite celebrate its 35th birthday. During the past three and a half decades, the company has accumulated an enviable wealth, respect and experience in minibus design and manufacture. Today as a trusted supplier, the company provides minibuses and support vehicles to many leading education establishments throughout the UK.
With a rich British heritage and reputation for craftsmanship, design and innovation, the company continues to grow year on year and is ever mindful of changing regulations and trends to consider with every new model it produces. Building strong working relationships with both the Peugeot Motor Company and the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) and providing customers with real choice, options available include:
New Peugeot Expert Combi Nine Seat Minibus. Designed to offer both driver and passenger space and comfort, this latest model minibus is an invitation to travel in comfort and style and is available with up to nine seats for smaller group travel.
The Red Kite ‘Sport’ Minibus provides a safe, reliable, 15 seat minibus that can be driven on a B licence and at 3,500kg gross weight, is probably the most versatile 15 seat minibus on the market today. Manufactured without compromise, the Red Kite ‘Sport’ Minibus is fully tested and approved by the VCA/VOSA (the designated UK vehicle approval authority). Saving your organisation time and money, while providing many other members of staff with driver access to your minibus.
The Red Kite Peugeot Boxer Minibus with occasional wheelchair option is exclusive to Red Kite and the number one choice for their customers: built without compromise to the highest safety standards, for the safe transportation of the nation’s school children. Subject to conditions, this minibus spans both B and D1 driving licence categories.
The company also offers a comprehensive choice of fully refurbished used minibuses, all fully warranted for your complete peace of mind. As you would expect from the UK’s leading supplier of school minibuses, all minibuses are fully tested and type approved, meeting and exceeding current minibus legislation. To assist with your purchase, Red Kite also provide a wide choice of financial options to choose from, including lease and purchase plans as well as the traditional outright purchase. However, contract hire is now a popular choice for many organisations, allowing a fixed monthly rental to be set aside and with the exception of fuel and insurance, no additional costs are required.
Under current regulations ‘B Licence’ category minibus drivers must be over 21 and have had their driving licence for a minimum of two years. To check which vehicle you can drive, go to www.gov.uk/vehicles-you-can-drive.
