Call them what you will – people carriers, multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs), or minibuses – they are those useful, spacious vehicles big enough to carry a crowd with all their baggage, and a fuel tank large enough to cope with long motorway journeys. These are not usually vehicles you need to keep yourself privately unless you have a very large family, so when you need one for a special occasion (as inevitably you will), it makes sense to hire one.
TJ Self Drive, based in Melksham, Wiltshire, specialises in minibus and MPV rental. Our fleet of minibuses for hire in Melksham includes different sizes, from a 7-seater up to a 17-seater. The vehicles are reliable recent models of well-known makes – Ford, Volkswagen and Mercedes.
In the UK you are allowed to drive a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats using a normal car driving licence, as long as there’s no payment from or on behalf of the passengers – in other words if your journey is “not for hire or reward”). So, if you’re thinking of taking your whole family – including grandparents, aunts and uncles – on a trip away, organising a fan club trip to a big match day, or taking the Sunday School class on a picnic, you can hire one of our minibuses and have yourself a great excursion!
There are some restrictions for driving an MPV for social purposes: you must be 21 or over, and have had a driving licence for at least two years. Drivers over 70 years of age need to meet the DVLA Group 2 Medical Standards.
If you are planning a pleasure jaunt in a minibus, we’ll be able to advise you on the best hire vehicle for your purpose, and explain all the regulations. Our aim is to make minibus and MPV rental as easy as possible, so you need not worry about complicated paperwork.
The minibuses and MPVs in the TJ Self Drive fleet of rental vehicles in Melksham are extremely well maintained, and kept scrupulously clean, ready for you to drive away. We offer very competitive vehicle hire rates, and are happy to give you an instant quotation over the telephone if you call to enquire. You’ll not find us tacking on any hidden extra costs or fees after you make a booking and arrive to collect the hire vehicle, or when you return it.
We’re renowned in west Wiltshire for our friendly, efficient customer service, and look forward to putting you behind the wheel of one of our vehicles, and on the road to a memorable minibus trip.
