With over 25 years of experience, Stockport Coach Hire is an award-winning company which pride themselves on getting you and your group safely from A to B in comfort and style. We have a recently updated fleet of Alexander Dennis coaches and Mercedes minibuses, each with custom interiors to ensure total customer satisfaction. We offer competitively low rates, without any need to sacrifice a 5-star level of service. We are trusted by our clients to conduct school and college transportation, corporate and business transfers, day-trips throughout the UK, airport transfers and tour/group hire. We are able to travel any distance throughout the UK and Europe, including journeys with multiple overnight stops, and multiple border crossings.
Based in Manchester, our team of 45 trained and uniformed drivers provide transportation for over 40,000 valued passengers each year. Each of our drivers are DBS cleared, first-aid trained and have a minimum of 5 years coach driving experience. Each driver has completed a unique in-house training program to ensure they meet the Stockport Coach Hire standard of comfortable and safe travel. We have won multiple awards at the UK Coach Awards including ‘Top Large Fleet Operator 2019’ and recently our longest serving driver Paul Smith, won the ‘Top UK Coach Driver Award 2020’. We are family run from the start, and take great pride in being able to offer a professional yet friendly service to each one of our passengers. The level of service we provide beats that of any other company in the market – guaranteed.
Each vehicle in our fleet can hold between 7 and 87 passengers, and all of our coaches and mini buses are wheelchair friendly. We are also able to hold large quantities of luggage, meaning there is always more than enough room for passengers to bring up to two standard size suitcases, and one cabin suitcase. Within our cabins there is also room for passengers to take personal belonging and small luggage items onboard.
Our coaches and minibuses are all fresh from the factory within the last year, and have been updated with luxurious internal finishes. We have fitted our coaches with state of the art sound systems, spacious reclining seats, industry standard tinted windows, and fully functioning toilets with baby changing tables. Our Mercedes minibuses feature the latest Bose sound systems, Italian leather seats, and modern lighting, perfect for a relaxing trip, but also allowing for a party bus experience if requested. We work closely with our fleet manufacturers ensuring we are able to offer the highest levels of comfort and safety, without needing to charge our clients high prices. Our fleet really is the best in the business which is why our customers trust us and 95% return for further trips in the future.
Whilst comfort and enjoyment is one of our highest priorities for our customers, safety is of course at the top of our list. Our entire fleet is fitted with 3-point seatbelts and anti-lock brakes, as well as driving assist features in the drivers cabin. These features, along with the rigorous training and experience our drivers have had, ensure that safety is guaranteed – we pride ourselves on the fact that the standard of safety we provide is way above the VOSA industry standard. Our training program has allowed us to be recognised by The Telegraph in 2017 as ‘The Safest Coach Company in the UK’ – as bold statement and title to hold, which is a result of years of hard work by our drivers and business team.
Today, after over 25 years of experience, our company has become one of the highest rated coach hire companies in the UK. We are trusted by over 40,000 valued passengers each year, have won multiple awards, and have a 99% customer satisfaction rating. We continue to expand each year to allow us to share our service with more and more people as the company grows. Our core value however will always remain the same - ‘To provide our service at competitively low rates, without the need to sacrifice a 5-star level of service’.
