Considering an electric minibus or van?
At Rivervale Minibus, we provide an extensive selection of new electric vehicles, varying from 9 to 15 seats. These are available for a five-year leasing term or for direct purchase.
Additionally, we have a range of pre-owned electric vehicles, which can be rented for 12 months or bought outright. Choosing Rivervale Minibus means more than acquiring a vehicle; our clients benefit from exceptional service, comprehensive driver training, and support in minibus management, ensuring safe and seamless operations of their minibuses.

Rivervale's hire purchase option for minibuses offers a practical solution for schools and organisations aiming to own their vehicles after a fixed term. This cost-effective approach allows for the immediate use of a minibus without the hefty initial expense of buying outright, making it ideal for budget-conscious entities.
What's the difference?
Unlike our 12-month rental, the hire purchase arrangement requires you to manage the vehicle's maintenance and servicing. This option suits those who prefer long-term investment over short-term rental and seek asset ownership post-contract. With flexible terms and customizable payment plans, hire purchase is an excellent choice for organisations that value financial flexibility and asset acquisition.
The advantages of minibus short term rental with fixed monthly payments
Having a minibus on 12-month rental is a great way to get an additional vehicle for your school or organisation without a long term commitment. You maybe waiting for a new vehicle, or are not sure if you will use another minibus enough to make it viable. Whatever the reason, 12-month rental with fixed costs and a fully maintained contract (including breakdown cover) is a predictable and hassle-free way to bridge the gap - or simply help out for an especially busy 12-months full of sporting fixtures and trips.
Your vehicle will be delivered with your livery and logo ready for you to drive, so you don't have to concern yourself with those kinds of details. Once the 12-month is up you can renew, look at other options or simply have us pick up the minibus.
Reduce your insurance premiums
Unlike our 12-month rental, the hire purchase arrangement requires you to manage the vehicle's maintenance and servicing. This option suits those who prefer long-term investment over short-term rental to ultimately own the vehicle once the contract is finished. With flexible terms and customisable payment plans, hire purchase is an excellent choice for organisations that want to increase their assets with financial flexibility.
