Over 50 years experience...
Established in 1962, Bennetts Coaches is a 3rd generation, award winning, family owned and operated company. During that time, Bennetts has gained considerable knowledge and experience in providing efficient, reliable and quality transport services for its customers. Whatever your transport requirement, whether it be for private hire, corporate work, tours, sporting fixtures, home to school, educational visits, day trips, airport transfers, Bennetts Coaches will be pleased to accommodate with our impressive fleet of coaches ranging between 16-67 seater coaches.
We take pride in the knowledge that we are local to Gloucestershire and provide many services to the community at large.
Built up over the past 50 years, Bennetts has an enviable reputation within the coaching industry. We have enjoyed steady but significant expansion over the past decade and, despite the impact Covid-19 has had on many businesses, Bennetts remains a strong, financially viable company with a bright future ahead.
At Bennetts Coaches, we see our role not simply as carrying passengers from A to B, but in giving them the best journey experience possible. We achieve this through using the latest, well equipped and environmentally friendly coaches, maintained to a high standard in our own workshop facilities by Advanced IRTEC qualified technicians. Our fleet of modern, executive, eco-friendly coaches is fitted with Traffilog, a real time tracking device to allow us to locate the vehicles at any given point in time and monitor driver efficiency. Due to continued investment in the fleet, the average age of our coaches is approximately four years old.
As a safety conscious company, we have also invested heavily in a breath-testing device called Alcolock. If a reading in excess of a pre-set limit of 8 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath is returned, the immobiliser will prevent the coach from being started. This is way below the current legal limit which is 35 micrograms. In the event of a failure, we receive an immediate text message alerting us of the detected alcohol reading and the corresponding coach.
Our coach drivers are trained to the highest standards by our RoSPA trained assessors, and receive on-going CPC and regular assessment training. Our drivers are professional, considerate and courteous and when on duty can be seen wearing smart uniform in our corporate colours. They are enhanced DBS Checked and registered with the DBS Update Service.
Every employee undertakes regular lateral flow Covid testing, we have been awarded Visit Britain’s ‘Good to Go’ industry standard kitemark recognising our enhanced cleaning and sanitising regimes of our coaches and depot and the processes we have in place to aid social distancing. We have also been inspected by the HSE to ensure we are Covid secure.
In a highly competitive industry we remain ever vigilant of the need to maximise efficiency in order to ensure we offer our customers best value for money without compromising on safety.
