About this page

At V-Class Hire, we're passionate about providing you with the epitome of luxury and safety in your travels across the UK, from the bustling streets of London to the historic alleys of Edinburgh. Today, I'd like to share some insights into the top minibus safety features that ensure your journey with us is not just comfortable, but secure too.

Advanced Braking Systems

When traversing the busy roads of Greater London, the ability to stop swiftly and safely is paramount. Our Mercedes-Benz V-Class vehicles are equipped with the latest Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) and Electronic Stability Program (ESP). These systems work in tandem to prevent wheel lockup during emergency braking and help maintain vehicle stability under adverse conditions.

Collision Avoidance

Modern technology has blessed us with features that actively help to avoid accidents. Features such as Active Brake Assist scan the road ahead and warn the driver of potential collisions. If necessary, they can autonomously apply the brakes to reduce the severity of an impact or, in some cases, prevent it altogether.

Passenger Restraints

Every seat in our V-Class minibuses is fitted with three-point seat belts, which are essential for keeping you secure in your seat in the event of abrupt stops or collisions. The importance of wearing a seat belt cannot be overstated, and we ensure they are always in perfect working order.

Tire Integrity

A minibus is only as safe as its tires. That's why our vehicles are equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). This feature alerts you to any discrepancies in tire pressure, which can be a precursor to tire failure and potentially dangerous driving situations, especially on the motorways connecting cities like Manchester and Birmingham.

Secure Construction

The structural integrity of our minibuses is another critical factor in passenger safety. The Mercedes-Benz V-Class boasts a robust body shell designed to absorb and dissipate energy effectively in the event of a crash, protecting the occupants inside.

Safety Assistance

Our commitment to safety extends to the provision of a comprehensive set of assistance systems. From Attention Assist, which detects signs of driver fatigue, to Crosswind Assist that helps stabilize the vehicle in strong gusts of wind, we've got you covered.

Luxury Meets Safety

We understand that when hiring a luxury vehicle, you expect not just comfort but also peace of mind. That's why our fleet of high-end cars like Rolls Royce, Bentley, and Maybach are not only the epitome of luxury but also come with the highest safety standards in the industry.

Safety Protocols

Our chauffeurs are not just skilled drivers; they are trained in safety protocols and first aid to ensure that you are in safe hands throughout your journey, whether you're heading to a business meeting in Leeds or a wedding in Bristol.

Safety FAQs

  • What safety features are non-negotiable in your minibuses? ABS, ESP, TPMS, and three-point seat belts are standard across all our vehicles.
  • Do your vehicles undergo regular safety checks? Absolutely, we perform rigorous maintenance and safety checks before and after each hire.

Our commitment to securing a safe and pleasant journey for you is unwavering, with every minibus feature and service designed to enhance your security without compromising on comfort or style.
