Double Decker’s and seatbelts are not the obvious option, but with the knowledge gained from testing and installing single deckers, we have proved once again what can be achieved, with the minimum of down time.
Rolling out the latest designs of handrail padding of all shapes and sizes, to be fitted within new and used vehicles, these products are a clear benefit over comparative products having a much increased life expectancy. This is proving a must have for the industry.
We have an exceptional track record of getting things right for the VOSA inspection. Though it is usually more practical for the operators to submit their vehicles themselves, we can arrange VOSA approval.
