Bespoke Conversions

We offer detailed advice to ensure that your minibus, incident unit or special purpose vehicle conversion complies with relevant industry standards and required safety testing.

Our minibus conversions, for example, utilise tracked floors, seats, wheelchair restraints and seat belts which are tested to meet EC Whole Vehicle Type Approval standard. In addition, all of our vehicles are supplied with appropriate certification – either Individual Type Approval or Certificate of Initial Fitness.
