For large families, big groups or transport businesses, the VW Shuttle provides you with a spacious and stylish vehicle that can carry 9 people at a time. Although a cultural icon, the Transporter minibus is a multi-person vehicle intended for business but its reputation makes it perfect as a shuttle, too.
If you’re leasing an MPV for your business, you want your customers to feel relaxed which is exactly what the Transporter Shuttle does. With a high quality, modern finish, you can ensure you have a professional image while your passengers enjoy a comfortable journey. There are options which means you can get a VW Shuttle for lease with 4-seat to 9-seat configurations.
You can also get the choice of wheelbases when choosing your VW Shuttle – there is the option for short or long. The short is easier to manoeuvre but you don’t get as much space for luggage in the boot area as you would in the long wheelbase.
Check out the VW Shuttle in further detail with Volkswagen.

Currently there is no T6.1 Sportline but we have a choice of no less than 4 front splitters. We can help by customising your new 110, 150 or 199 PS Diesel Engine. The latter comes in DSG only of course. This way you can have either a Kombi or a panel van too.
At Swiss none of our vans are ready made. Instead you get some choice as to what your van will look like. Nothing sets off a van more than having a front splitter. All of these front splitters are sold ready fitted. You can mix and match

Minibus Leasing. Swiss vans sell minibus from 8 seats up to 17 seats but there are a few things to consider as the cost of ownership rises sharply with a minibus. There are two main types and classes, up to 9 seats and over 9 seats.
9 Seater Minibus Leasing
In practise any 9 seater minibus will have three passengers in the front and it gets a little cramped so many taxi firms and authorities prefer an 8 seater so the driver can concentrate better.
The Road Fund License for a 8/9 seater can easily be £1200 a year, after all it is officially a bus.
LWB Minibus are more popular as it allows for a little luggage space behind the rear seats in most cases.
Some finance companies will not totally comfortable with a few professions such as self drive hire, taxi companies, airport run companies. So you need to be ready with facts and figures. Bank statements, accounts, and of course a reason for wanting a minibus in the first place. In many cases finance acceptance is easier without a final payment. No one will believe and rightly so that an airport transfer company does 10,000 miles a year ! What you don’t want is to be in a position of negative equity and in some cases drivers are in a van that is costing more in deprecation than they are actually taking in income.
If you are using the vehicle as a private hire some local authorities will have different rules to others. For example twin side loading doors
17 Seater Minibus
As with the 9 seater many prefer to sacrifice the middle seat for driver comfort and safety.
Again the RFL can be £1200 a month plus
Again LWB can accommodate slightly more luggage.
In most cases a Tachograph is required and a special drivers licence. Before you even ask for figures its a good idea to check on this. Can you actually drive a minbus ?
Again finance companies prefer small or no final payments
Again supporting paperwork really helps an acceptance e.g Bank statements Accounts Proof of a contract with a local authority such as a school or prison
T6 Panel Vans & Spec
All our vans are available as panel vans as well as Kombivans. Prices are actually very similar to Kombi Vans. There can be many reasons for wanting a panel van oppose to a Kombi van but we have just as many in stock.
SWB, LWB and DSG panel vans always in stock.

VW Transporter Models Startline The VW Transporter Startline is the entry model but even so the standard stereo features App Connect to integrate with busy modern life. Like all panel vans there are three front seats as standard but it can get a little cramped on long journeys. Cruise control is a standard feature as are power electric mirrors which are heated for frosty mornings. VW do not reduce safety equipment on even base model vans. Its against their principles. A full steel bulkhead is standard and you will be pleased to hear that the headlights are much improved on the last model. The steering has also changed on the T6.1, its much lighter thanks to newerr servotronic steering. Its easily recognised by its black ABS bumpers. There is an upgrade named the “Business Pack” see below
Crosswind assist standard
Front assist with emergency city breaking
