Ford Transit Minibus
Ford Transit Minibus
Not only does the Ford Transit specialise in shifting hefty loads but it can also primarily focus on moving a large number of passengers, too. This is thanks to the Ford Transit Minibus. Perfect for businesses that focus on the transportation of people; the Minibus has 17 seats so is ideal for private hire by large groups.
Being the most popular range of vans in the country; the Transit completes the set with the Minibus. Able to carry 17 people makes the Ford Transit Minibus the ultimate people carrier. Your passengers can navigate to the back of the bus easily with plenty of space for movement so it isn’t a tight squeeze.
Unfortunately, if you wanted to convert the Minibus into a van for some cargo shifting, it isn’t possible to remove or collapse any seats. This is because they are bolted to the floor and include all the appropriate safety features to be legally allowed to carry 17 people.
Also required with a Minibus is a tachograph, which ensures employers and businesses are abiding by the rules on driver’s hours. A tachograph monitors speed, distance and time spent driving.

Specification of the Ford Transit Minibus
The Ford Transit Minibus has one specific purpose and that is the transfer of a group people from place to place. So, the van isn’t going to be the easiest on the eye. But, that doesn’t take away from its practicality.
The Trend trim includes:
- Heated windscreen
- Ford SYNC 3 hands-free system
- Rear privacy glass
- Lockable glovebox
- Parking sensors
- Electrically operated, heated mirrors
- Cruise control
There are also options to include satellite tracking and witness cameras as extra. Engine remapping is also possible to provide more power.

Best Ways Of Van Finance
At Swiss we have literally most funders on the market and will introduce you to the best value. Our aim is to help you grow your fleet
and become your natural choice to replace vehicles.
– Van Hire purchase – VAT down and VAT deferred . HP is a great way to actually buy a van. If your VAT registered claim the whole VAT amount back within three months.
– Van Leasing
Small deposits from one payment in advance to 50% of the van price. Its 100% tax deductible so great fir new start companies that have start up costs. Is the favourite way for many manufacturers so often attracts the greatest discounts. Its more flexible than contract hire.
– Lease Purchase
Not all manufactures support this method so often pre registered vans are the way to go. This is because you take ownerships automatically and they worry it will affect residual values. Ask us first as often you cant get a private plate on this method. Its very much like HP but more suited to VAT registered companies as they can claim the VAT back of course. If you are flat rate VAT this is the one for you.
– Van Contract Hire
Great for larger fleets that want to control costs but its seldom sold to smaller users as its quite restrictive. Many ask for it because they have asked for it in the past. Some mistakenly think there is no credit check check but there is.
