Best minibus seats for all category vehiclesCraig Ellyard
When upgrading or refurbishing your minibus seating the best seats are British made which comply with all EU standards, include integrated seatbelts, are manufactured to order, and are available with floor fixing kits and head rests.
As a minibus operator you’ll also add value for money and short lead times to your list. Of course, coming up with a list of desirables is all well and good but you have to find a manufacturer or supplier who can meet all the targets on your list.
Why you need new minibus seats
If you’ve purchased a pre-owned vehicle for your fleet one of the upgrades, you’ll be looking at is the seating. By their very nature pre-owned vehicles have wear and tear. The degree of that wear determines the price you pay but also how much work you have to do on the vehicle before putting it into service.
It may be that you just need to replace the trim to match your existing vehicles. The existing covers may be worn, faded and stained. Replacing them is an easy and relatively low-cost way to immediately upgrade the vehicle. New seat trims instantly make the vehicle more presentable.
Sometimes you’ll need to replace more than just the passenger seat trims. You may need to replace one or more of the seats themselves. And this may also be true of vehicles you’ve had in your fleet for a while.
Modern passenger seating is very well made and robust. But even the best will need replacing at some point or you may consider adding a new configuration of seating.
Whether replacing, upgrading or adding a new layout you’ll need to find the best new seating for your minibus.
How to find the best minibus seats
As we mentioned at the top of the page there’s certain criteria you’ll look for when considering which replacement seats you buy:
- Built to EU standards.
- Made in the UK.
- Available in different configurations.
- Available in different cushion widths.
- Come with integrated seat belts.
- Supplied with floor fixing keys.
- Optional head rests.
- Choose from high back or semi-high back seats.
- Suitable for M1, M2 and M3 vehicles.
- Available quickly and at low cost.
While not an exhaustive list and supplier that can tick all those boxes has to be worth considering when you’re looking for new minibus seats.
The problem is finding such a supplier will be like looking for a needle in a haystack. There’ll be plenty who can tick some of the boxes but all? The issue is supplying quality at a value price. It’s hard to find both.
The issue of course is that suppliers have to buy their stock and then put their margin on top. And while that’s traditional economics it doesn’t make the price lower for you. Fortunately, there’s a solution.
Miss out the middleman and purchase your new minibus seats directly from the manufacturer. You get the same great quality but at a much lower cost than when buying from a distributor.
